Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Birthday Card

This card features the Prized Peony bundle which includes the Prized Peony stamp set and Peony dies. It’s one of those bundles that offers many design options and ease of creating. I’ve posted 3 other cards from this set so far and each one is very different. I think this is my favorite (at least so far!). I would love to hear which one is your favorite. Enjoy!

The Paper

  • Very Vanilla Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and 5 x 3 3/4″
  • Just Jade Cardstock: 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ and a scrap for the sentiment
  • Terracotta Tile Cardstock: 5″ x 3 1/4″ (front) and 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside)
  • Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper: approx 3 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ for image & die
  • Very Vanilla Medium Envelope

The Creating

  • I used that Stamparatus to stamp the large peony image with StazOn Jet Black Ink on the Watercolor Paper. Tips: 1) the watercolor paper has more texture than standard cardstock and the Stamparatus allows restamping multiple times for a great image (I stamped this one 3 times). 2) StazOn ink is alcohol based so when watercoloring it won’t bleed. 3) you will need StazOn Cleaner to get this ink off your stamp
  • I used Petal Pink, Terracotta Tile, Just Jade and Shaded Spruce ink pads with the smallest Water Painter to color the image. Tips: 1) squeeze the lid and bottom of the stamp pad together to get an ink pallet on the top. 2) Lay a base of the lighter color (i.e., Petal Pink on the flowers) and then add the darker color (Terracotta Tile) in the shaded areas of the stamped image. Let dry or use your Heat Tool between colors/layers. 3) Keep a paper towel handy to dab extra water from your Water Painter to control the color intensity… the wetter the lighter the color will be.
  • Die cut the watercolored image with your die cutting machine.
  • Emboss the smaller Terracotta panel with the Dainty Diamonds 3-D folder.
  • Rub the Basic Black scrap with the Embossing Buddy. Stamp the sentiment in VersaMark ink, sprinkle with White embossing powder and melt with the Heat Tool. Fussy cut with your snips.
  • Adhere the embossed Terracotta panel to the Basic Black Panel with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. Adhere the peony on top. Tie the Vanilla ribbon in a knot and trim ends. Apply the sentiment with Mini Glue Dots.
  • Adhere the Just Jade panel to the card front. Add the other panels.

For the Inside & the Envelope

  • Stamp the sentiment in black on the Very Vanilla inside panel. Add the two peony images with 2nd Generation Terracotta ink. Adhere to the Terracotta panel and then to the card base.
  • Stamp the peony in First Generation Terracotta ink on the envelope front and flap.

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Love and Thanks Friend Card

This card features the Prized Peony stamp set and the coordinating Peony Garden Designer Series Paper. I have a new love (to replace the retired Honey Bees). This one is a must have. Enjoy!

The Paper

  • Gray Granite Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.
  • Petal Pink Cardstock:  Stitched Rectangle die cut (3 3/8″ x 4 6/8″) and a scrap for the sentiment.
  • Peony Card DSP: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: a 3 3/8″ x 4 3/16″ die cut (using the same Die as the Petal Pink, but shortened) and a 4″ x 5 1/4″ inside panel.

The Creating

  • Stamp the large peony in Gray Granite Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Use the 3 3/8″ x 4 6/8″ Stitched Rectangle Die lined up with the bottom through your die cutting machine. Then, realign the stitching at the sides and lowered to shorten the die across the top of the peony (it’s the perfect width, but longer than I wanted it to be). Run just the top edge through your die cutting machine.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Gray Granite Ink on a scrap of Petal Pink Cardstock. Use your Paper Snips to fussy cut.
  • Adhere the DSP to the card front. Adhere the Petal Pink die cut to the DPS at an angle. Top with the stamped layer.
  • Pop the sentiment up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add three pink Elegant Faceted Gems.

For the Inside & the Envelope

  • Stamp the large peony in Gray Granite Ink in the left corner of the inside panel and the envelope. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card.
