HAPPY MONDAY! This week is the last week of school for my kiddos! I can’t believe the school year is already over! Where does the time go? It’s bittersweet for me as we won’t be returning to the schools next year! I am so sad about that because these are really great schools in a great community! But, the military has given us a new set of orders so off we go! My first move out of my home town, EVER! My poor little brain and heart. I try and keep it all in… But I feel like I’m gonna explode at some point.
I’ve got three cards today that all use the same background stamp from The Ton and some next level embossing folders from We R Memory Keepers. To learn more about these embossing folders, check out my post HERE and my video HERE. I first discovered the Ton from this background stamp. I think I saw it on a Facebook group feed and I was like WOAH! It’s mine! And then, the Rose Gold Ink/sequins. I think they were the first company to jump on the Rose Gold bandwagon and I am so glad they did! Ever since then, I became a huge fan of The Ton. As I mentioned, all three cards using the same Peony Garden background stamp by stamping it with Versamark ink and heat embossed it in Gold Tinsel embossing powder (warning, after heat setting, some of the gold does come off on your fingers still).
I adhered the panel to a dry embossed panel using the Bouquet Next Level embossing folder. I thought the florals paired nicely together! As a finishing touch, I foiled the Many Thanks word die by die cutting it with Deco Foil Toner paper and Rose Gold foil. Heads up, the Mini Minc is on sale for $54 HERE (free shipping option too).
The next card also uses the same Bouquet Next Level embossing folder. I die cut another watercolored Peony Background from the Hi die from Winnie and Walter. I added a bit of Fossilized Amber distress ink on top of the embossed flowers and then adhered the Hi down with some foam dimension onto the stitched rectangle panel.
I added a few glitter adhesive strips to the top of the card and stick a fork in it, this card is done!
Lastly, I cut this panel down with my paper trimmer and rounded the corner with my corner rounder. I adhered the panel with foam dimension a panel I heat embossed with the Dotted Next Level embossing folder (I keep saying next GENERATION embossing folders, grrrrr).
I foiled the “hello die” with Black Deco Foil and adhered the entire panel to a black card base!
ALL DONE! 3 double embossed (heat and dry) watercolored background cards! Use any watercolors you have to color in your peony background. I used distress inks! 🙂
I hope you guys all have an amazing Monday!!!

beautiful cards Laurel – love the rose gold too – as an aside – i moved 13 times in 20 years with my air force husband – i know it’s difficult but always an adventure.
Great cards! My dad was in the air force and we moved every two years (exception when he was in Vietnam ) and I learned so much. Good luck with move.
Your cards are so pretty. Thank you for sharing them with everyone.
Hi Laurel ~ Sending you extra hugs with the end of the school year and your move looming ahead. Go ahead and cry….it’s always healing (and a great way to give your eyes a good rinse!! wink, wink). Your cards are beautiful and I’m headed to EH to get me some ‘o dat Toner Paper! ~HUGS~
Laurel, your cards are gorgeous! I especially like the one with the “Hi” die cut. I have that die, & I think the only time I’ve used it so far was based on another card I saw you use it on! In fact, your card then was the reason I wanted the die to begin with. LOL I wish you the best of luck with your upcoming move. I know it’s never easy, but hopefully it won’t be bad. Sending many hugs & positive thoughts your way! Take care!
