Peony Inspiration

Two weeks ago, I shared a card made with a beautiful Vintage Peony Inspiration Stamp Set. Here is another one made with this set. I combined it with Botanical Ruffled Peony Stamp Set. They are fantastic together.



I love how those flowers look then they are watercolored without an outline.  I used ordinary Watercolor Brush Markers and Bristol Smooth Cardstock. First, I placed the cardstock and the stamp to the Stamp Platform. I colored the stamp (one section at a time) with markers and stamped the image to the cardstock. I repeated it until it was all stamped. Then I took a small paintbrush and a bit of water and colored it all in. It wasn't necessary to add any more color, it transferred from the lines very well. After the coloring was done, I let it dry and then placed it back to the Stamp Platform. I re-stamped the image with the same markers to get the details back. Deeper shadows were painted with markers.


The sentiment is from Vintage Peony Inspiration Stamp set. I stamped it with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Sea Foam Embossing Powder. Actually, it wasn't important which color EP I used because I covered it later with Razzle Dazzle Glitter and used the heat tool from underneath to melt the glitter into the embossed sentiment. Rest of the loose glitter was brushed off. 


For the background, I adhered 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the cardstock. With the help of the x-acto knife and a ruler, I cut the protective layer to diagonal stripes, alternating 0,5 cm and 1 cm strips. I peeled off the protective layer from all half cm strips and covered the tape with Razzle Dazzle Glitter. One cm strips were covered with Fantasy Gold Glitter


To embellish my card, I sprinkled some Happiness Super Thick Embossing Powder to the background and melt the powder from underneath the cardstock with the Heat Tool. I also added a few strips of lace to decorate my card. 



Materials used:
Watercolor Brush Markers; Stamp Platform; Pattern Paper; Lace;

Ruffled Peony

This April brought us two fabulous Peony stamp sets by Sparkle N Sprinkle. One set was featured on my last week blog post, here is the other one - Botanical Ruffled Peony. Mostly, I used the digital version of this set, except the sentiment. 



Let's start with the background. I took one of the digital pattern paper from Marble Magic Papers set as a base and placed several copies of the peony flowers from the Botanical Ruffled Peony digital set on top of it. This way I got a wonderful new pattern paper to print out. Then I adhered 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape on top of the printed paper and covered the tape with Cloud Nine Glitter. I also sprinkled some specks of Super Thick Gold Embossing Powder to it, and heat set from underneath the paper. 


For the Peony border, I placed several flowers to side by side and printed them out. I adhered Fantasy Gold Glitter in center of flowers with Sakura Glue Pen. After fussy cutting the top edge, I inked all layer with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink, covered it with Sparkle Embossing Powder. 



The sentiment from Botanical Ruffled Peony Stamp set is stamped with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink and it is heat embossed with Gold Detail Embossing Powder
For the matting layer, I covered a piece of paper with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and die-cut it out. Then I removed the protective layer from the tape and covered the sticky paper with Fantasy Gold Glitter




As usual, I like to make a glitter matting layer for my card background. For that, I adhere 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the edges of the matting layer, adhere the background to the middle of it and cover rest of the tape with glitter - this time it was Fantasy Gold Glitter.


Supplies used:
Botanical Ruffled Peony [938], [Digi938];
Marble Magic Papers [Digi4009];
Cloud Nine Glitter [GM2000];
Sparkle [EP1007];
Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky]
Scattered Straw Distress Ink; Spellbinders dies (Labels Eighteen, Floral Ovals);

Vintage Peony Inspiration

It is super easy to do a No line watercolor technique with Vintage Peony Inspiration [930]. Even though it has always been intimidating to me. The key is to use any kind of stamp platform tool, right cardstock, and water-based markers.

I used cheap Watercolor Brush Markers and Bristol Smooth Cardstock. First I placed the cardstock and the stamp to the Stamp Platform. I colored the stamp (one section at a time) with markers and stamped the image to the cardstock. I repeated it until it was all stamped. Then I took a small paintbrush and a bit of water and colored it all in. It wasn't necessary to add any more color, it transferred from the lines very well. After coloring was done, I let it dry and then placed it back to the Stamp Platform. I re-stamped the image with the same markers to get the details back. Deeper shadows were drawn in with markers.
Even though you can't see on the photo, the flower is covered with Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen. The center of the flower is covered with  Dimensional Glue and Sun Dazzle Flocking


The sentiment is from the same stamp set. Is stamped with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Military Green Embossing Powder. I used a stitched rectangle die to cut it out and colored it with yellow Aqua Flow Brush Pen.


The background is colored with Nuvo Aqua Flow Brush Pens from various sets. After it was dry, I stamped the leaves from the image all around the edge with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink and heat embossed some of them with Military Green Embossing Powder and others with Sunshine Embossing PowderNeon Super Thick Embossing Powder was sprinkled to the background and heat embossed from underneath the cardstock. 

I inked the edge of the background with Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Ink and heat embossed it with Military Green Embossing Powder. Some lace was added as embellishment.
