Catered Crop ~ Smile!

Okay just where did July go??? And June for that matter!! I can't believe how fast this summer is flying by. Why is it that those long cold winter months drag on forever, but summer is gone in the blink of an eye? Oh well what's a girl to do...make a card to cheer herself up ~HA!!! 

The Catered Crop has a vellum challenge going on. I haven't played along with them lately, so I put my Pretty Peonies (PTI) set to work again. I die cut three of the blooms, stamped them with kraft ink and set them aside to dry. Next I stamped this adorable mason jar and label (Oh So Fun set) from Precious Remembrance Shop onto an ivory panel. The smile sentiment is from the Positive Thoughts set.


I made a table base for my jar using my water pen and kraft ink. To color the peonies, I turned them over then colored them with Tombow markers. After deciding how to arrange them in the jar, I stamped the leaves, then added the peonies with foam tape. They look so pretty and have a lovely curviness to the ends of the petals!

Thanks for popping in today. I'll be back tomorrow with a new Paper Sweeties August Inspiration challenge! Hope to see you then ~Lisa

This is just gorgeous. I never would have thought to make those flowers from vellum and color the back and now I want to try it too. also, I love how you made that table to ground your vase. And, you didn't even have a table stamp.
