Watermelon Peony

Watermelon Peony published on 2 Comments on Watermelon Peony

Ok, my post name might be a little deceiving since I usually use part of the stamp set name but the flower in the new You’ve Got This looks like a peony to me.  And I love peonies.  And they are blooming so beautifully in Virginia right now….but not in my yard.  I finally found the perfect spot for one and planted it but I don’t think it is going to bloom this year.  But I’m patient.  Because I see the amazing flowers in my friend’s yard a couple of doors down.  Instead I just created one in my stamp room!

Watermelon Peony

I got to meet with my hostess club last Saturday and this is one of the cards we made.  I had just gotten my preorder box from Stampin’ Up on Friday and I flew down to the stamp room to make something so my friends could see this awesome new stamp.  I pulled out the Tip Top Taupe (you know you just want to say that over and over) and inked up the cross-hatch stamp.  I stamped it off a couple of times before stamping onto Whisper White.  Then I stamped this peony and the sentiment in full strength Taupe.  One more time I stamped the flower top on another piece of Whisper White and pulled out my Blender Pen to use with Watermelon Wonder and Delightful Dijon.  I quickly cut the flower after coloring and attached with Glue Dots.  I had curled the petals just a little before attaching.  I popped the image panel up on Dimensionals and put it on a Tip Top Taupe base.  Some Basic Pearls add a special touch.

For those of you in the United States, I hope you have a happy and safe Memorial Day.  If you get the opportunity, take the time to stop and remember those who have sacrificed so much for all of us.  Enjoy a day of soccer, a moment with friends, and a hug from family knowing that these are possible because of those who chose to serve.  Back next week with another showcase of the new colors.  Until then, thanks so much for stopping in!

You KNOW that cross-hatch stamp is at the top of my wish list, right? And I think it’s sitting right next to Tip Top Taupe! I love how this neutral looks with the colorful bloom. Gorgeous.

And I’m sure your real peonies will look beautiful one day. I think they don’t like to be moved so they may be experiencing a little transplant shock. So don’t give up on them!
