Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop, #aWOWbloghop. We have 24 stops on this hop representing 13 different time zones (Midnight in Hawaii through 10 PM in New Zealand) in all of Stampin' Up's markets! Thank you so much for joining us as we hop Around the World on Wednesday!
This month we are focusing on inspiration from the new 2020-21 Stampin' Up!® Annual Catalog. So many possibilities! One of my very favorite things is the Peony Garden Suite, especially the Prized Peony bundle. I really like that there are realistic stamp images and dies to cut them out and also dies that create a paper pieced peony. Today's project focuses on the realistic stamp images.
On my project I used 2 of the 3 peony images in the Prized Peony stamp set. The peonies were colored using Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends. The leaves were colored using Old Olive Stampin' Blends.
I love a black, white, and red color scheme. When I saw the Best Plaid Builder dies I knew that it would be so fun to create black & white plaids with a floral pop of color. I created the plaid using Basic Black and Vellum cardstock on a Whisper White card base. It can be tricky attaching vellum to a card. I used small dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on all the end pieces and intersections of the Vellum and it is secure and not vey noticeable.
The sentiment is from the Celebrate Sunflowers set and is stamped on a oval from the Stitched Shapes dies. I wanted to add something with a little sparkle and think the red rhinestone is perfect. I played around with other embellishments but finally settled on the single rhinestone.
Thank you for stopping by my blog. Now it is time to hop on over to see what the talented Teri West has created.
