Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a friendship card made with the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. The Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony bundle is one of the new sets in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. I’ve grown peonies in my garden for several years now and they’re one of my favorite flowers. Last week, they started to bloom, but we had some severe storms over the last few days, so they aren’t so pretty anymore ☹️. So I’ll wait for them to bloom next year to get some pictures. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:
I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here if you prefer.
I started by cutting a panel of Gray Granite card stock with the pretty scalloped border die from the Peony Dies. This die cuts the scalloped border and embosses a loopy trim at the same time – it’s so feminine and pretty. I stamped the sweet friend sentiment by covering the parts of the sentiment stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony cling stamp set with tape before inking it up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After inking, I removed the tape (be careful because it can be very messy) and stamped the bottom of the Gray Granite panel. I adhered the stamped panel to a Peony Garden designer series paper panel and then to a Petal Pink mat with multipurpose liquid glue.
I die cut the leaves and flower parts with the dies from the Peony Dies from Whisper White card stock. I sponged the leaves with Mossy Meadow ink and then the adhered the leaves together. I colored the stamen with Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and I used Petal Pink ink to sponge the flower sections. I made the ink most intense in the back of the flower and in the front section where you can see the inside of the petals.
I assembled the flower with multipurpose liquid glue on the lower edge of each petal. First I adhered the Daffodil Delight stamen to the smallest flower section and then applied the glue to the bottom and carefully slipped it into the next larger flower section, lining up the bottom edge. I repeated this until the flower was assembled. It sounds complicated, but it’s fairly easy because the bottom edges have curves that are pretty simple to line up. I adhered the leaves to the Gray Granite strip with multipurpose liquid glue and adhered the flower with dimensionals on the top and multipurpose liquid glue on the bottom. I added three of the gorgeous Elegant Faceted Gems and a Gray Granite shimmer ribbon bow. I adhered the decorated panel to the front of a Petal Pink card base.
I stamped the medium peony from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony to the bottom of a Whisper White panel after stamping off and adhered a strip of the Peony Garden designer series paper to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.
The gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony bundle is so fantastic! The stamps are gorgeous and each image has a coordinating die so there is no need to fussy cut. There is a variety of sentiments that are really sweet and pretty and even a background stamp for adding texture. And finally the 3D die cut peony flower is absolutely amazing! It is definitely a set that you will want to add to your card making tool chest!
