Spellbinders - Pretty Peony


Hello friends - thank you for stopping by!  You may or may not be aware that there is a New Arrivals Blog Hop happening over at Spellbinders and so much inspiration shared with the new arrivals.  You can still pop over to the Spellbinders Blog and hop along with the bloggers for a chance to win from each blogger and an opportunity to win prizes from Spellbinders - it all starts HERE

I am sharing a card created using one of the new arrival stamp and Die sets from the Cool Vibes Collection by Licensed Designer Stephanie Low.  I just love Stephanie's style - the Cool Vibes Collection by Stephanie Low is a wonderful collaboration of floral and medallion designs with a touch of hip Bohemian style.

 Medium Peony Cool Vibes by Stephanie Low Stamp and Die Set

I have started by stamping the image using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black.  The image has been coloured using Chameleon Pens and cut/embossed using the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine – 6″ Platform.  

Next the Peony has been layered onto a white background cut/embossed using the Nestabilities Art Deco Fairmont Labels Etched Dies #  (#1 being the smallest).  The Die has been used as a stencil, sponging inside the Die using Imagine Delicata Ink in Golden Glitz, before removing the Die. Next it has been popped up onto a card front, also using a slightly larger Nestabilities Art Deco Fairmont Labels Etched Dies and DCWV patterned paper.  The edges have been lightly sanded using a sanding block.  This has been popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Want2Scrap 250 Count - Moss Green Pearls - Self Adhesive have been added around the edges of the layers.
