Blue Peonies

Hello, friends!! I hope you had a great weekend!! We are enjoying the Spring temperatures here!! Although rain is in the forecast for the majority of this week, at least it seems as if the frigid temperatures are behind us…yay!!

I have three cards to share today!! They all use the Peony Memories Cardmaking Stamps and Coordinating Dies, along with sentiments from the 2d. Ed. Fill It In Sentiments. My pink and purple ink pads get plenty of love with florals, but my blues were feeling neglected…ha. So I pulled out three different blue collections and got busy!!

First, I used the Blues Collection

This collection includes Blue Diamond, Cobalt Breeze and Parisian Blue. I stamped the peonies from the Peonies Memories Cardmaking stamp set with these blues and the leaves with the Crystal Garden Collection. The centers of the flowers were stamped with Beach Blondie and Amber Citrine. Once all of the stamping was done, the Coordinating Dies were used to cut out all of the images.

I selected a cardstock to match the lightest blue ink, then cut it and a piece of white cardstock with the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large). The “YOU”, from 2d. Ed. Fill It In Sentiments, was stamped in the darkest ink and the smaller words in the middle color. The white panel was splattered with diluted inks in the lightest and medium colors of ink. The peonies were arranged and popped up with foam tape.

I did add some more dimension to the center of the flowers with a yellow gel pen. A sprinkling of Glass Slipper Sequins was the finishing touch!!

My second card used the Sky Blue Collection

This collection includes Cali Blue, Azurite & Deep Sapphire.

The card was created exactly the same as the first one. I have included individual photos so you can see the colors.

(Don’t tell the others, but I think this may be my favorite!)

Well, maybe this one is…

I used the Dusty Blues Collection here.

Arctic Sky, Miami Cool and Italian Denim are the colors included in this collection.

I don’t know…I can’t choose a favorite!! How about you? Which color combination is your fave? I’d love to know!!

Have a great week and I’ll see you soon!!!
