Peony Garden Suite - My Thoughts Are With You

My card today is made using elements from the Peony Garden Suite Collection. It utilizes the large Peony stamp and matching die, Peony Garden designer series paper and the Elegant Faceted Gems (love these gems - so pretty!)



My Stampin' Up! Color Fusion for today is based on the color palette for the Peony Garden Suite in Gray Granite and Petal Pink with Pear Pizzazz.



I used the following cuts of cardstock:

  • Gray Granite: 8½" x 5½", scored at 4¼"

  • Petal Pink: 4" x 5¼"

  • Whisper White:

  • Peony Garden Designer Series Paper:

  • Petal Pink:

  • Whisper White:

I also used the following stamps and dies:

  • Prized Peony stamp set: Large peony flower and stem stamp

  • Prized Peony stamp set: accent/texture stamp

  • Prized Peony stamp set: "My Thoughts are With You" sentiment stamp

  • Peony dies: Large peony flower and stem die

Directions:

  1. Trim a piece of Gray Granite cardstock to 8½" x 5½" and score at 4¼"

  2. Use your bone folder to get a nice, crisp fold in your card base so it lies flat

  3. Trim a piece of Petal Pink cardstock to 4" x 5¼"

  4. Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 3⅞" x 5⅛" 

  5. Trim a piece of the Peony Garden designer series paper in the design (as shown in the image) to 2" x 4½"

  6. Trim a piece of Petal Pink cardstock 1⅝" x 1¼" (remember to check your scraps!)

  7. Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 1⅛" x 1⅜" (remember to check your scraps!)

  8. Cut a 6½" piece of the Gray Granite shimmer ribbon

  9. Stamp the large peony stamp from the Prized Peony stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock

  10. Die cut using the matching peony die in your Big Shot (or equivalent)

  11. Using your Petal Pink Stampin' Blends markers, color over the Peony Garden designer series paper to give it a slight Petal Pink tinge

  12. Using your Petal Pink Stampin' Blends markers color in the peony flowers

  13. Then using your Pear Pizzazz Stampin' write marker to color in the leaves and stem

  14. Tie your shimmer ribbon into a bow

  15. On your large piece of Whisper White cardstock (3⅞" x 5⅛") stamp the texture design stamp in the top left corner and the bottom right corner in Gray Granite ink to add a little dimension to the Whisper White cardstock (see image for further details)

  16. Stamp the "My thoughts are with you" sentiment stamp onto the center of your Whisper White cardstock (1⅛" x 1⅜")

  17. Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of your large Petal Pink cardstock and adhere centered on to your Gray Granite card base

  18. Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of your Whisper White cardstock and adhere down centered over your Petal Pink card stock.

  19. Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of your designer series paper and adhere down approximately ¾" from the right side of your Whisper White cardstock

  20. Apply Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of your peony die cut flower and apply down over top of your designer series paper (see image for further details)

  21. Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of your Whisper White sentiment and adhere down to your small piece of Petal Pink cardstock

  22. Apply Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of your Petal Pink sentiment mat and adhere down slightly over the base of the stem of your peony flower 

  23. Take your tied shimmer ribbon bow and use a glue dot on the back of the knot on the bow and adhere down over the top of your stem from your peony flower (see image for further details)

  24. As a finishing touch, take a couple of the Elegant Faceted Gems and apply 3-4 onto your card base to help accent areas around your flower or sentiment
