A favorite flower for many gardeners is the peony. They have beautiful and fragrant blooms. I have three in my flower gardens and love when they are in bloom. It is no surprise that I bought the Prized Peony Stamp Set and coordinating Peony Dies.
The Prized Peony Stamp Set has beautiful images and sentiments.
The Peony Dies will cut out some of the images and also builds a 3D peony flower.
Today, I have three cards for three different level of stampers:
A beginner stamper usually has cardstock, ink and a few accessories.
A casual stamper usually has a die cutting and embossing machine, as well as Stampin' Blends.
An avid stamper usually likes more challenging projects.
Card Base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4".
First Layer: 4" x 5 1/4" Pedal Pink Cardstock. Use the Pedal Pink Ink Pad to ink up the large peony image. Stamp off once on scratch paper and then continue doing this to stamp all around the cardstock. This makes a subtle background.
Two 1 3/4" x 2 3/4" Soft Sea Foam Cardstock. Adhere to the First Layer.
Casual & Advid
Place the two cardstock pieces inside the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder and put through a die cutting and embossing machine. Adhere to the First Layer.
3" x 4" Whisper White Cardstock. Stamp peony image in Petal Pink Ink.
Place the Stitched So Sweetly Die on Whisper White Cardstock and put through a die cutting machine. Use a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock and stamp the peony image in Black Memento Ink. Color the peony using the Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends. Use the Peony Die to cut out the peony through the die cutting and embossing machine. Attach it with Dimensionals.
Place the Stitched So Sweetly Die and the Peony Builder Dies on Whisper White Cardstock and put through a die cutting machine. Attach the cut-out from the Stitched So Sweetly Die to the card. Sponge Petal Pink Ink on the cut-out peony flower pieces. Sponge Soft Sea Foam Ink on the cut-out leaves. Put the peony flower pieces together and use Glue Dots to keep them in place. Attach the completed peony with Dimensionals. Put the pieces to the leaves together and slip underneath the completed peony with Glue Dots.
The final steps for all three cards is to:
- Add Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the peony images.
- Attach the Basic Pearl Jewels.
- Make a bow from the 1/4" Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and attach with a Glue Dot. (Color the ribbon with the Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends. )
Three different cards for three different levels of stampers. All three cards use the same basic supplies, but look at how different they are!
