Stampendous Fresh Peony card…

Hi everyone! When I was growing up we had a lot of peony bushes in our yard. My parents liked to use them on Memorial Day. I’m loving all the peony craze in stamps but I’m not getting the ones I have colored up! Guess it’s enough just to collect them.  One of these years we hope to plant some here!  Here’s a start anyway, with this pretty Fresh Peony stamp and die set from Stampendous.

Their dies cut right on the line, so I went around with a black marker to make the white edges black.

The oval dies and another label come with the die set! The sentiment is in the stamp set.  I used a We R Memory Keepers embossing folder for the background.

A clean and simple card.  I spritzed the flower and leaves with water and then colored it with watercolor powder and a little color pencil after it was dry.

Now that I look at this stamp some more, I’m thinking it would be a great one to stamp multiple times, cut up the petals and layer up for a frilly, dimensional floral piece!

This ended up a little over 5 ½ inches square.

Thanks for stopping by!

Here’s what I used to make this card…(I couldn’t find the dot embossing folder, sorry!)

Stampendous Hydrangea Garden Tri-fold Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends! How about some paper hydrangeas to hold me over until we have some real life ones! I have to tell you, it’s looking good for some flowers from our 3 new bushes we planted last year though.  whew.

So a simple thinking of you card using Stampendous Hydrangea Garden stamp and die sets.

I used a piece of Smooth Bristol card from a 9 x 12 pad, cut to 4 ⅝ inches x 12 inches.

Stamp and heat emboss the Hydrangea, in white, at one end, then die cut stopping at the wide part of the flower stamp.  The leaves are separate from the flower head, so I did have to glue them on underneath.

I stamped and die cut 2 extra of the single flower in the set and popped up one on the front and used the other inside… I love it there! Looks like it just landed there! hehe

I colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a little water.

The sentiment is gold embossed and from the Stampendous Fresh Peony Cling Stamp set.  Sorry the sentiment is blurry…It was hard to get a picture because the flower end kinda sticks up a bit. It’s so pretty IRL!

I’m just feeling a flower kick this Spring for some reason!  But then I love cute kids and critters too!  So stay tuned cuz I have a fun cute card to share soon!

Stampendous Build a Bouquet Card and SALES!!!

Such fun! I can only hope that one day our 3 Hydrangea bushes that we planted last year will give me a jar full! lol  I see green coming up though, so there’s hope!

I had fun playing with this stamp and coordinating die set from Stampendous.

Inking/daubing directly on the stamp with Distress Stains in the MISTI, like I’ve seen others doing, pull the color around with a waterbrush and paint in some details with the same waterbrush. No two alike!  ***Just discovered this though while making the links for what I used.  Distress Stains aren’t available anymore…they are in spray form now.  So I linked to some dauber bottles to put the Distress Sprays in.  Sorry about this but easy fix!

I stamped the jar in Ranger Archival black ink….my go to black for everything other than Copic coloring right now.

I stamped the plaid background with a Concord and 9th set using coordinating Distress Oxide ink pads.  That was fun…a gal could make plaid all day! lol

I decided the jar needed to sit on something…so those ovals…they come in so handy for that!

I think I need to try some other techniques with this set too… so many flowers and even a butterfly in the set and another vase! Even a pop-up with the Stampendous pop up die!

It’s a flower time of year for sure!  YAY!

AND it’s SALE time!  Check these out! Copics on sale at Simon Says Stamp!

 

AND at Scrapbook.com it’s an EXTRA 10% off everything!  Coupon expires Sunday, May 6th at midnight, PST.  They have these stamps and dies!
