I’m honored to be collaborating with Kraftgali.com to celebrate their 3rd anniversary and support a much needed COVID-19 Response Fund for Feeding America.
COVID-19 Response Fund for Feeding America
The initial goal of the Peony Bliss Stamp Set release was to celebrate Kraftgali’s 3rd Anniversary. However, Princy Agrawal, from Kraftgali.com feels this is the perfect opportunity to give back to the community.
50% of all profits made from our store kraftgali.com through April 1-15 would be donated to COVID-19 Response Fund for Feeding America. With school closures, job disruptions, and health risks, millions of Americans will turn to food banks for much-needed support. They can’t do it alone and you can help.Princy Agrawal

Copic Peony Bliss
Of course, my first inclination was to Copic color this gorgeous Peony Bliss Stamp Set.
Red flower | R21, R22, R24, R29
Yellow flower |Y21, Y26, YR24, E19
Leaves | BG90, BG93, BG96, BG99
Buds | BG75, BG72
Stripes | BG70
I used Copic marker BG70 through Altenew Classy Stripes Stencil to create the background. I’d never used Copics like this with a stencil and I love the result!
No-Line Watercolor Peony Bliss
Ooh, this no-line watercolor card was so fun to paint! Normally I use rough watercolor paper, but it can be challenging to stamp. So I gave Saunders Waterford High White Hot Press paper a whirl.
The Letter Sparrow handmade watercolor pigments moved beautifully on this hot press paper. Stamping was a breeze with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
I used a wet on wet technique, filling the petals with water, dropping pigment at the base of the petals, and letting it fade to white. You have to see how the pigments move in the video. Amazing!
I watercolored with French Red, Nitroso Green, and Mayan Turquoise.
Gold Foil Peony Bliss
You’ve seen bright Copics and muted watercolor, how about a monochromatic gold foil card?
I haven’t foiled much, but I wanted to give WOW! Bright Gold Fab Foil and WOW! Bonding Powder a try. Stamp your image with embossing ink as you normally would, sprinkle on the bonding powder, heat emboss, and immediately press the foil over the embossed image.
For best results, run your heat embossed and foil-covered panel through a die cutting machine to ensure the foil is bonded to the powder. The machine’s even pressure will help create a clean crisp image.
Look how shiny the gold foil is in the light! The image is stamped on Altenew Spicy Yogurt and popped up on fun foam. The base is covered with 5 strips of Altenew Golden Stream Washi Tape to add a bit more gold.
That’s all the card designs. I hope you’ll consider supporting the COVID-19 Response Fund to Feed America by shopping at Kraftgali.com from April 1-15, 2020. Kraftgali stocks many of your favorite brands including WOW! and Altenew, so do check them out.
