Hand Drawn Blooms and Prized Peony

Hello Stamping Friends,

Today’s Facebook Live event was successful!!  For those of you who have done this for a long time I’m sure you are shaking your head but it was my third Facebook Live and the second one crashed and had to be abandoned.  So two successful events feels rather nice!

Club members received two card kits for this month’s club and we joined together with a Facebook Live followed by a Zoom meeting.  We created an Easel card with the Hand Drawn Blooms bundle and a Tri-Fold card with the Prized Peony bundle.

 

What you still need is the specific recipe for each card.

Easel Card with Rainbow Glimmer Paper:

Color #1, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo

Color #2, Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay

The Banner Blooms Die was used to cut the beautiful bouquet from the Rainbow Glimmer Paper.  Since the paper is multi colored the cards were different depending on where the cut was made.

Recipe:

  • Base:  4 1/4 X 11 scored at 5 1/2 and 2 3/4
  • Layer 1:  5 3/8 X 4 1/8  Make 2 and Corner Round the top of one
  • Layer 2:  Shimmer White,  4 X 5 1/4 , Corner Round the top
  • Easel Holder:  Shimmer White, 4 X 1
  • Scrap of Shimmer White on which to stamp the words to put on the banner 3 X 1 1/2
  • Rainbow Glimmer Paper:  6 X 4, cut one bouquet and one butterfly
  • Twine: 10″
  • Jewels to embellish: 3
  • Ink:  Bermuda Bay or Melon Mambo
  • Stamp Set:  Hand-Drawn Blooms
  • Die Set:  Banner Blooms

Gosh, you didn’t post for a month and now you made a video! When do I get to be in the video?  

Patience, Sal, I have been working with an animator and soon you will be joining the videos.

Prized Peony Tri-Fold Card:

I just received my mini catalog preorder and added a stamped image to my wedding card using the Little Treats Stamp set:

Isn’t that just the perfect addition?

Here is the original one I did in the Facebook Live Video:

 

Recipe:

  • Base:  Whisper White 12″ X 6″

To cut your tri-fold follow these step by step instructions:

  1. Place the base on the Stampin’ Up! Cutter the long way – (vertically) on 2″ mark- and cut from the 2″ to the 10″ mark on the cutter
  2. Move the base to the 4″ mark on cutter and cut from 2″ to 10″
  3. Turn the base the short way-(horizontal) and place it at the 2″ mark of the cutter and score from 0″ to 2″,  lift the scoring blade and move to the 4″ mark on the cutter and score from 4″ to 6″
  4. Move the base to the 4″ mark on cutter and score from 0″ to 6″- top to bottom
  5. Turn the base to the other side and place it at the 2″ mark of the cutter and score from 0″ to 2″, lift the scoring blade and move to the 4″ mark on the cutter and score from 4″ to 6″
  6. Move the base to the 4″ mark on cutter and score from 0″ to 6″- top to bottom

Front Base Layer:  Whisper White 5 1/8 X 3 5/8

Layer #1 all in Basic Gray:

  • (1) 5 X 3 1/2 for front base
  • (2) 5 7/8 X 1 7/8
  • (3) 3 7/8 X 1 7/8
  • (5) 1 7/8 X 1 7/8

Layer #2 in Designer Series Paper (Note: two of the top layers are whisper white)

  • (1) 4 7/8 X 3 3/8  for front base
  • (2) 5 3/4 X 1 3/4
  • (2) 3 3/4 X 1 3/4
  • (4) 1 3/4 X 1 3/4

Whisper White – all three pieces are embossed at the bottom with the Peony Edge Die

  • (1) 2 1/4 X 4 1/4  Front Banner
  • (1) 3 3/4 X 1 3/4 for stamping greeting
  • (1) 1 3/4 X 1 3/4 for stamping peony

Envelope Punch Board – Whisper White Envelope Paper 8 1/4 X 8 1/4 with 3 3/8 score line starting point

Envelope Decor – Designer Series Paper 6 X 3 1/2, glue to flap and then fussy cut to fit

Ribbon – 1/4″ Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon- 10″ for knot, 12″ for bow

Elegant Faceted Jems – 3

Peony (4) –  Petal Pink  8 1/2 X 3 , die cut the four parts, each piece slides into the next largest piece matching up the notches.  Use a bone folder to curl the edges and then sponge with Blushing Bride for a darker contrast.

Stamin (1) – Scrap of Daffodil Delight at least 1″ square

Leaves (3)- Garden Green large sections 2 X 3, die cut one of each size

Leaf accent (3)- Granny Apple Green 2 X 3, die cut one of each size

I used a glue dot to attach each piece at the notch and then added dimensionals in between the layers.

Here is the base with the gray granite layer and the DSP layers, the white part of the base is where you will glue the front base so it does not need a gray layer:

 

This shows the front base added and the die cutting at the bottom of each edge of the white pieces:

Obviously, you want to stamp the white pieces before you adhere.

I stamped the greeting in Basic Gray and then colored the back of the peony stamp with Stampin’ Write Markers – Petal Pink, Daffodil Delight, Garden Green and Granny Apple Green.

Note:  Do not use Stampin’ Blends – they will stain your stamp.

Prized Peony Suite Card

Here is a card I made using every single one of the Prized Peony Suite products for a thank you card.  I am casing Mary Deatherage of Stampsnlingers with this one:

Recipe:

  • Base:  Gray Granite  4 1/4 X 11  scored at 5 1/2
  • Front Base:  Gray Granite  4 1/4 X 5 1/2  Embossed with the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder; it might need shaved a hair on the edges if it stretches
  • Front Mat: Petal Pink  2 7/8 X 5 1/2
  • Cross Panel Mat:  Petal Pink  2 1/8 X 4 1/4
  • Inside Mat:  Petal Pink  4″ X 5 1/4″
  • Front Vertical Top:  Peony Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP) 2 3/4 X 5 1/2 colored with Stampin’ Blends Petal Pink and Granny Apple Green.  Don’t panic as you color the DSP flowers pink, as they look an ugly dark pink from the grey on the back of the DSP showing through.  Once it dries it is a pretty petal pink!
  • Front Horizontal Panel Top:  Peony Garden DSP  2 X 4 1/4
  • Inside Liner Top:  Whisper White  3 7/8 X 5 1/8
  • Sentiment:  Whisper White Scrap stamped with Hand Drawn Blooms and fussy cut

  • Leaves (3)- Garden Green large sections 2 X 3, die cut one of each size
