Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far! It’s TaeEun here sharing a couple of cards which are featuring the Peony Memories Cardmaking stamp set. This stamp set is designed for an easy layering and die cutting of multiple peony flowers and leaves.
I combined the peonies with the Lean Back and the Hey There Sentiments stamp sets from our Anniversary Release.
To start off I stamped the Peony Memories Cardmaking in various color collections. For the yellow ones I used the Citrine Collection, for the blue ones the Sky Blue Collection and for the purple flowers I used Soft Amethyst, Iris Blooms and Grape Crush. The leaves were stamped in the Crystal Garden and the Pewter Collection.
I cut all the images using the coordinating die and set them aside. This die cuts the whole panel of the stamped images in one pass! Now I have a bunch of flowers and leaves to play with 🙂 !
For my first card I stamped the Man from the Lean Back stamp set in Crystal Pewter on a Canson watercolor paper panel. I then colored him loosely in black using wet on wet watercoloring technique. I also did a watercolor wash in black on the bottom half of the panel. After the panel was completely dry I splattered black ink on it and let it dry.
I cut the panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die slightly smaller than A2 size and foam mounted it on a black cardbase. I arranged the blue peonies and gray leaves as shown in the picture and added them to the card. Some of the flowers were raised using foam adhesives.
The sentiment from Lean Back set was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock. I finished off the card with three Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.
And here is the next card!
To create the second card I ink blended the background in Lemon Drop, Peach Blossom, Azurite and Grape Crush (from top to bottom). I splattered white opaque ink on the whole panel and let it dry.
The sentiment from Hey There Sentiments set was white heat embossed on the background panel. I then added the small clouds to the ink blended sky also by white heat embossing. I then stamped the hot air balloons, in Peach Blossom, Azurite and Grape Crush. The baskets were stamped in Aspen Cocoa.
I mounted the background panel flat on a soft pink cardbase and arranged the peony field on the bottom of the panel. I mixed yellow, blue and purple peonies and used the green leaves. Some of the peonies were adhered using foam tapes.
To add some shine and sparkle to the card I colored the open area of the hot air balloons using a Stardust clear gel pen and covered the whole balloon with shimmer Pico Embellisher. I finished off the card by scattering some Glass Slippers sequins.
That’s it from me today! Hope I could give you some inspiration on how to use our new stamps 🙂 !
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Two brilliant cards using these very pretty peonies beautifully coloured, and I love the leaning figure in the first, and the pretty balloons on the second and I love the blue and grey combination on the first, and the much brighter mix of colours on the second are very uplifting. Gorgeous TaeEun. x
Such beautiful cards!
I like the combination of the stamp sets. The background of the second card is very well done. Like the added touches on the hot air balloons.
TaeEun, I’m ‘die-ing’ to see that die IRL! What a genius idea THAT was to create! Kudos to The Ton!
Okay I’m just amazed by that handsome dude just chillin’ gazing at your pretty flowers – just like I am! Bravo, my friend, and to your up-and-a-WAY-too gorgeous encore!
Those peonies are so beautiful, I love these cards.
