Simple Peony Card

The NEW Prized Peony suite is just gorgeous! The Peony dies make realistic peony paper flowers with ease. The Prized Peony set has simple sentiments, detailed stamps, and a touch of background whimsy! The colors in the suite are create a soft feel- Petal Pink, Whisper White, Gray Granite, and Basic Gray.

To make this super easy card, you will fold a piece of Gray Granite (5 1/2 x 8 1/2) card stock and crease it with your Bone Folder. Next, stamp the grunge diamond pattern randomly with Gray Granite ink (stamped off once) onto your card stock base. Then stamp the larger peony on a piece of Whisper White (4 1/4″ x 3 1/2″) using Petal Pink ink. There is a scalloped border in the Peony Dies set that I used to cut the Whisper White piece at the bottom. Then take a piece of the Peony Garden DSP cut @ 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and adhere that to your card base. Place Dimensionals on the back of the Whisper White piece that has the peony stamped on it and adhere that on the card base. Next, you will fold a 4″ piece of the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon in half and adhere to the card with Glue Dots. Chose your sentiment and shape to finish off your card! I used the die from the Perfect Parcel to cut out a sentiment in this set.

Simply Soft Butterflies


I was cruising around Pinterest and saw a card by Tami White and this creation happened!  The Floral Romance Specialty DSP has these gorgeous vellum patterned papers in the collection! You get 12 sheets total: 6 vellum sheets (3 each of 2 designs) and 6 double sided sheets (3 each of 2 designs).  You can makes so many simple and beautiful cards with this pack of paper!  Or scrapbook your floral memories using it for your scrapbooking!


I used Glue Dots behind the flowers on the vellum so you couldn’t see them. Then I used Mossy Meadow to mat the DSP.   Next, I stamped the butterflies with the Butterfly Gala stamp set and punched them out with the Butterfly Duet punch!  (they both will be in the NEW catalog!).  To color the butterflies, I used daubers in ink pads.  First I used Blushing Bride in the centers of their bodies and then Rich Razzleberry for their outer wings.  Of course what card isn’t complete without Wink of Stella!!  It also helped blend the colors together!  I finished it off with a sentiment on a piece of Whisper White popped up on dimensionals.
