Friendship Cards with the Fresh Peonies Stamps and Crafting Dies

Happy Thursday Morning Everyone! This is Bev here with a quick introduction. Today I am happy to welcome Yasmin Diaz to the Technique Tuesday blog. Yasmin is an amazing card making artist. I know you will enjoy seeing her tutorial and the beautiful cards she made with the new Fresh Peonies stamps and matching dies!


Hi everyone, Yasmin here. Today I’m thrilled to be sharing these friendship cards that I created featuring the Fresh Peonies Stamp Set and Fresh Peonies Crafting Dies. They were so much fun and easy to make, so in today’s post I’ll be sharing with how I white heat embossed, and water colored them! Without further ado, let’s jump into the tutorial.

To begin with I started by scoring two A2 standard size white card bases, and I set them aside while I started working on the card panels. For the first card I white heat-embossed the peony cluster directly on the watercolor card panel, and I water colored with coral and green tones. Then, to make it stand out, I added a touch of light blue to the background. Once the water coloring was dry I gold heat-embossed one of the sentiments, and to finish it off I adhered the back of it with double sided tape to one of the white card bases.

For the second card I white heat embossed the peonies on a piece of watercolor paper, then I water colored it with orange and green tones. Once the water coloring was done, I set it aside while I ran though the die cutting machine a piece of gold mirrored card stock along with the Friend die included in the fresh peonies crafting dies, as I wanted to combine the ‘Friend’ word with one of sentiments from the stamp set. For the card layout I adhered the friend word in one of the lower sides of the card, and then I gold heat embossed one of the sentiments underneath it. Finally, I used the Fresh Peonies crafting die to die cut the peonies cluster. And to finish it off I adhered the peony cluster above the sentiment, and I adhered the card panel to the other white card base.
