ICS Blog Hop...Prized Peony

ICS header

Hello Friends!  Welcome to the Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop!  This month we are sharing our favorite bundles from the 2020 Stampin' Up!® Annual catalog.  Can I say it is impossible for me to truly say what my favorite bundle is? My favorite is usually the bundle I am currently playing with.  Right now I am stamping with the Prized Peony bundle so it is my favorite.

I think I am pretty clever cause you see how I also used part of another bundle?  Yup, I am tricky that way.  I used the Best Plaid Builder dies part of the Best Year bundle for the background.  The Best Plaid Builder dies are another favorite of mine and I use them a lot.  They are fun to use and you can just mix and match colors to suit your whim.  Here I used Vellum cardstock  and Petal Pink cardstock  to create the plaid.  Love how the vellum and Petal Pink just makes the plaid look soft and kind of dreamy.

I stamped the peony in Gray Granite ink and used a Blender Pen to color in the leaves and stem.   I didn't use any ink other than what was stamped. The flowers were colored using the Light Calypso Coral and the Petal Pink Combo Stampin' Blends.

I added some Gray Granite 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon.  This ribbon is so pretty and has a subtle silver shimmer to it.  I also added some Elegant Faceted Gems.  These gems come in Clear, Petal Pink, and pearlescent white, 15 of each in 2 different sizes.  I used the smaller size on today's card.  The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White on a Stitched Rectangle in Basic Gray ink.  I used a post-it note to cover up the bottom part of the sentiment and then inked the stamp,  remove the post-it (very important step-ask me how i know) and then stamp it on the Whisper White cardstock.

Just a look inside the card showing another peony image from the set.  I used the same coloring tools as I used on the other peony.
