Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Birthday Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is For The Ladies/Girls and I made a flowery Petal Pink Birthday Card with the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony bundle. I also used the Parisian Flourish embossing folder and Ornate Layers die for extra feminine frills! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a Basic White panel with the Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Petal Pink card base. I used the fancy large Ornate Layers die to cut a panel of Petal Pink background paper from the Peony Garden designer series paper and adhered it to the card on the embossed panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Best Year cling stamp set in Versamark Ink on a Vellum strip and sprinkled it with silver embossing powder. I heated the sentiment with my heat tool until it was shiny and wrapped the vellum strip around a floral Peony Garden panel, securing it in the back with liquid glue. I adhered the panel to the die cut panel on the card front.

I cut two sets of peony flowers using the Peony dies from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peonies bundle from Basic White. I also cut four Basic White flower centers and colored them with the light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I used a blending brush to apply Petal Pink ink to the flower die cuts, coloring the smallest pieces the darkest and the bottoms of the outer petals the darkest too. I inserted two flower centers in each of the smallest die cut flowers, securing them with liquid glue. I inserted each flower into the slot of the next largest flower, securing them with liquid glue until I had two assembled peonies.

I die cut one of each of the leaves die cuts, using Mossy Meadow for the solid leaves and Old Olive for the details. I assembled the leaves, adhering them with liquid glue and adhered them to the card with glue dots. I positioned the peonies and adhered the top one to the card with glue dots and the bottom one with dimensionals and glue dots where it overlapped the top peony. I finished the card front with rhinestones.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the peony from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony cling stamp set in stamped off Petal Pink ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Best Year stamp set in Smoky Slate ink and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Peony Garden DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card. I also stamped the bottom left corner of a Basic White envelope with the peony in full strength Petal Pink.

The Peonies in my garden are sprouting up and I can’t wait to see them bloom! And I’m glad that the Stampin’ Up Prized Peonies are returning in the new 2021 – 2022 Annual Catalog so they can be enjoyed for longer.
