Alex Syberia Designs May Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

Updated: May 20

Hello friends!

I'm so happy to participate in Alex Syberia Designs May Release! Alex has reopen her store and I could be more thrilled for her.

This is such a sweet release indeed and has something for everybody; from flowers, to graphic designs and of course these adorable mice!

Here's the link to the full release in Ale's on line shop:

For today's post, I've used one of my favorite dies from this release, the Elegant Peony die set

This is a very easy to make card and it came together pretty quickly. First of all, I chose some color for the peony petals and for the greenery. I knew I wanted my leaves and stem to be dark blue so I decided to pick dark and light pink cardstock. I went from darkest to lighter colors adding some extra shading with the matching ink. I used Concord &9th cardstock and inks: Wildberry, Dragonfruit, Carnation, Ballet Slipper, Cotton Candy and Blush from The Stamp Market.

For my leaves and stem I used Blueberry and again I inked up the lower part of each leaf for some contrast.

For my background, I hot foiled the new Beautiful Day foil plate with Opal Glimmer foil on of my front panel and then added another panel (also with the image foiled with Opal glimmer foil) which I foam mounted on the left of my cardbase. Once I glued all the petals, I arranged my peony onto these hot foil images and used the new Friend die with white and dark pink cardstock and added a subsentiment from the Beautiful Day stamp set.

Your card is so stunning! I love the opal foiled background, and the peony is gorgeous, from the different colored petals to the fun blue leaves. Dorothy A
