Happy Thanksgiving!! My turkey should be in the oven by now so it’s time for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s hop, I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony bundle with the Heartwarming Hugs designer series paper to make a holiday season birthday card. I love this peony and I wanted to use it for a special December baby birthday card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the pretty sketch we are using for our projects:
Emboss a Real Red Panel with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder and adhere it to the front of a Real Red Card Base. Adhere the striped Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series paper to the back of the red dotted designer series paper and then adhere it to the card front. Stamp the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments cling stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with the Painted Labels Die. Adhere the label to the card front.
Cut the poppy petals from a Whisper White panel using the Peony Dies from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony bundle. Lightly sponge the petals with Real Red ink. Cut the flower center from Bumblebee. Assemble the flower and add a couple of half dimensionals at the top of the flower between the last two layers. Brush clear Wink of Stella on the flower to give it some sparkle. Cut the leaves from Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz and adhere the pieces together.
Adhere the peony to the card front with glue dots. Adhere the leaves under the flower with glue dots. Make a bow with Real Red sheer ribbon and adhere a short length of Polka dot tulle ribbon behind it. Adhere it to the card and finish with three rhinestone gems.
Stamp the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. Adhere a strip of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP to the bottom and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony bundle is a beautiful set with gorgeous peony images as well as this innovative 3D die cut flower. It’s a must have if you love to make floral cards!
