Just Add Color Blog Hop & Giveaway!

I am beyond excited to be hopping along with Spellbinders to celebrate the Stephanie Low – Just Add Color release.  And if you are hopping along you should have arrived here from Janette’s wonderful Blog!

If you know me, then you know that I adore flowers and I recently posted a video making a Floral Gift Card set using the Just Add Color release and you can see that HERE, just in case you missed it.

Today I did some marker watercolouring with a little help from some pencils to add some simple shading to these beautiful flowers from the Peonies Bundle Stamp Set.

I added a sentiment from the Orange Blossoms Stamp of the Month Club.

and what to do with a ‘left over’ flower? Why, create a coordinating gift tag of course.

My tag is a simple die cut circle with a heat embossed sentiment from the Thanks Expressions set.

  1. So very beautiful, Therese! Now if I could only get Peonies in this color for the garden! LOve that you’ve left those on your card base uncolored … a look I hope to remember! xx
    =]

  2. LOVE the color you used! And I keep forgetting about that technique to stamp and on the card base and paper layer on top. I really like the look and appreciate the reminder. I’m looking forward to when I can get the peony stamp and color that. Looks like fun!! Thanks, Therese!!

  3. Dear There’s lovely card and gift tag set using Peonies Bundle stamp set from Just add color collection by Stephenie Low. I loved the colors and the design. Thank you for everything. Tc stay blessed always.love and hugs from Sri Lanka

  4. Gorgeous Therese you use colours I’d never think of but look wonderful.
    Never knew that Spellbinders did stamps and the beautiful peonies set is sold out! Thanks for sharing your inspiration too!
    Hugs Shaz in Oz.x

    1. Hi Shaz, I have also seen these stamps at Craft Online, but haven’t checked to see if they are in stock at the moment… hope this helps (although it may not help the budget lol). Hugs Therese

  5. Beautiful card and I love how you made the matching tag from leftovers. I often forget about my leftovers and they sit in an envelope unused and forgotten, this is a great way to use up those left over pieces. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Who doesn’t love Peonies? Well, you certainly won’t find me in that group. I love them. I have one stamp set that has them….but I love the way that Stephanie designs….I am a huge fan of hers. Therese I loved your card and tag today…..so pretty…as always…..I look forward to seeing what you are designing. Thanks so much!

  7. BEAUTIFUL!!!! The striking black with this peach make a WONDERFUL COMBINATION! I LOVE this image. Your choosing this peach color is PERFECT & make the flowers look SO REAL!!!! A WONDERFUL JOB & I LOVE that little tag too!!! 🙂

    1. Beyond the incredible scent of peonies, I find the shapes and colour of them are equally amazing. Your card is in that same category. Love the black and white images in the background, the boldly coloured floral imagery and that awesome sentiment square. All wonderful and inspiring! Thanks so much.

  8. Love the use of black and white against the beautiful colors of the peonies in the card. Thank you for the inspiration. Love the Just Add Color Peonies Bundle Stamp Set by Spellbinders.

  9. WOW Therese! Your card is absolutely gorgeous and breath taking! Tag too! The flowers look like you could actually smell them they look so real! Thanks for fantastic inspiration!

  10. Theresa, loved the black and white background with that special splash of peach color on the flowers. The sequins added just that special touch. Thank you for sharing your talents with us today.

  11. Absolutely stunning card and tag! Your water coloring is just so gorgeous! I really love the softness in the colors too!

  12. Oh Therese, I love the soft look of the beautiful colours you chose to use on the Peonies !! So very appealing & what a great idea to make a gift tag as well. I’d have just stashed it away in hopes of using it another time. (then likely forget it…) lol I’m never disappointed with your card creations.

  13. Soooo gorgeous!!! The black and white background really lets those beautiful colors shine. And your coloring is stunning; it really brings the flowers to life!

  14. Therese, so pretty! I love how the delicate flowers just pop off the page. These are lovely stamps with amazing detail.

  15. Glad you made these cards. Sadly I never knew that spell binders made stamps.
    The hop has shared a wealth of information.
    The card and tag are beautiful.
    Cheers
    Lisa

  16. Therese, I don’t need anymore flower stamps, but as usual, you have made these peonies so beautiful that they are now on my wishlist! Thank you for the inspiration.

  17. Beautiful card and tag what a great idea to do both at the same time. Love the soft watercolors. Thank you for sharing your talents.

  18. Therese, your coloring is beautiful! Love how you have the stamped imges on the base uncolored, an the ones you cut out by hand colored. So beatiful!

  19. I have said it before and I will say it again here. You coloring skills are off the charts Therese! Another stunner of a card.

  20. Ohh wow Therese, your card is stunning and I love that you made the gift tag from the left over flower. The colouring is awesome and the colour you used is beautiful.
    The card set from your previous post is also great, I love the gorgeous flower stamps by Stephanie.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

  21. Both the card and tag are beautiful. At first glance I thought it was real flowers laying on the card lol, your coloring on these is THAT good Therese!! This Just Add Color collection by Stephanie Low is beyond cool and looks like it is going to be so much fun to “Just Add Color”! Thank you for sharing both and for the always amazing inspiration.
