For my 1st card, I combined the Toned Squares and Wild Dahlias set. I've never seen a set quite like the Toned Squares. It's such a fun set to use!! I think this is a great set to use when you need to create a background that's unique but not over powering.




Once I stamped the background, then I work on the flower arrangement. Stamped, die cut and colored all the flowers and leaves and then arrange them on the card. I curl the flowers and then adhere the pop dots on the center of the flowers. I loveeee the font combination on the sentiment. Simple but elegant.





On to my next card. For this, I used the gorgeous Coming Up Dahlias. I stamped and heat embossed the flower with white embossing powder on a piece of watercolor cardstock. Then, I color it with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor. Once it dry, I adhere the panel to the cardstock base and stamp the sentiment from previously release Pragmatic Wreath set.

Great cards! You did a beautiful job with the Coming up Dahlias mother's day card. The watercolour effect is lovely and the bright pop of colour on the card base really makes the flower stand out. Really beautiful.

Vera I love the Dahlia card with the square background. The background really makes the Dahlias 'pop' off the background. The other card with the Peony is beautiful created in water colours on top of white heated embossing powder. I will definitely be trying this technique out soon. :O)
