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.
Now it is time for you to hop on over to see what Deb Naylor has created for you! I know you will love it!
I have listed below all the products I used to create my card. Enjoy the hop!
