Hi all. Vera here. Today, I am showcasing Blended Peonies Large Stencil set. Honestly, when I first saw the sneak pee, my thought was whelp, that’s a large stencil. Like way too large for cards. Until I got them in my hand and then I was like, oh my goodness, this is such a cool stencil. I can quickly make 4 cards with just this stencil set. Yep, it’s a 4 in 1 kind of stencil. Let’s get on with it shall we?
My birthday card stash getting low, so I decided to do all 4 cards with birthday theme. I went with these color combination: Soft Garden, Meadow, Bright Fern, Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz. The neat thing about this stencil you can easily create 4 cards with completely different color scheme simply by using post it note to cover the edges of the next quadrant or you could make it super easy and make all 4 with same color scheme, which the route I went with. Once I finished stenciling, I simply die cut all of them using the coordinating Blended Peonies Coordinating Dies. Here’s my first card.
For this one, I paired the flowers with soft blue background as I love blue and green combo. For the sentiment, I used the label sentiment from Rose Labels set. I do use this set a lot because I love label style sentiment. To make the flower pop a bit, I die cut extra 2 layers of the bouquet shape and adhere all of them together to create the extra thickness. Then simply add the sentiment and some yellow Stickles to the center of the flowers.
For my 2nd card, I with soft gray background to compliment the leaves color.
Just like the first card, I die cut two extra layer to pop the flower. I feel like this make it sturdier compare to using foam adhesive. Adhere the flowers, add sentiment, stickles and finish by adding some Emerald Green Opaque rhinestones.
For my 3rd card, I paired the flowers with the dainty Quilted A2 Coverplate die.
And, last but not least, my 4th card.
I made all these 4 cards in about an hour. I think what took me the longest is deciding what colors to use. Hah! So, what do you think of this Blended Peonies set? Personally, I love the option of having 4 sets of stencil in 1. I can use just 1 of them or 2 or all of them. Whatever you feel like.
I hope you enjoy today’s inspiration. Peeps, that’s all from me today. May your week be a good one. Cheers….
