Happy Friday!! I hope you’ve had a great week!!
I have a card to share with you today featuring the Blended Peonies Stencil Set! This set allows you to stencil four A2 card fronts on an 8.5” x 11” piece of cardstock at one time! However, I used three of them to form a peony border on the front of my card!
I began by stenciling the Blended Peonies Stencil Set onto white cardstock. One good thing about stenciling is that it allows you to blend different colors to obtain different shades that you wouldn’t be able to get with stamping. The stencils are numbered in the order that they should be used. I blended some purples and blues on each layer with blending brushes using the following colors: layer 1: Soft Amethyst & Arctic Sky; layer 2: Iris Blooms & Periwinkle; layer 3: Violet Fringe & Stormy Sea; layer 4: Grape Crush; layer 5: Spring Salad; layer 6: Everglade Moss; peony centers: Lemon Drop. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them all out.
I wanted a little texture on the area of the card that wasn’t covered by my floral border, so I die-cut one of the layers in the Diamond Plaid Layering Coverplate Die Set from white cardstock and adhered it to the front of a white top-folding card base. (I actually ended up covering most of this, but it does add a bit of interest to the center of the card.) I arranged and adhered the floral die cuts around the perimeter of the card and trimmed off the excess.
The sentiment is from the Easy Expressions Birthday Stamp Set. It was stamped with Violet Fringe and Noir inks, then cut out with the Coordinating Die. It was popped up in the center of the card with foam tape. Dark Purple Opaque Rhinestones were the perfect finishing touch!!
I really love how these beautiful blooms fill up the front of this card! It can be used for so many occasions!!
Thank you for stopping by today!! Have a wonderful weekend!!
