Peonies are one of my favorite flowers, so I was ecstatic to see the stamps in today’s release!! I made four cards…all very similar, but slightly different. I started by clear stamping the Peony Crush Cling Stamp onto colored cardstock , then heat embossing two with clear embossing powder and two with pearl embossing powder. I added some shimmer marker to the flowers, then die cut with the Double Stitched Rectangle Die (Small). Next, I stamped and heat embossed the Dearest Peony stamp onto Bristol cardstock with white & pearl embossing powders, then colored with Zig markers. I die cut the peony images, along with some fun foam (for added dimension) with the Dearest Peony Coordinating Die. The die cuts and foam were adhered to the background panels. The sentiments were stamped from Dearest Peony & a stamp set that will debut tomorrow onto coordinating cardtock strips with clear ink & white embossing powder. The panels were adhered to top folding note cards. A combination of Raspberry Sparkle, Violet Sparkle & Blue Lagoon Couture Mixes finished off the cards.

When I saw the Pretty Mail stamp set, I let out a little squeal!! What a cute way to decorate a coordinating envelope. I chose four couture ink colors (Hollywood Star, Rose Quartz, Soft Amethyst, Iris Blooms) that closely matched the cards and stamped the large image in the center of the envelope. I added the “Kindly Deliver To:” and “You’ve Got Pretty Mail” from the same set.

I can’t wait to send these out!! I am giddy just thinking about the response I will get to them!!!

  1. So many wonderful color combinations
    and the matching envelopes.
    Who could ask for anything more.
    thanks for sharing.

  2. Beautiful and colorful set of cards. I love how you colored them with the Zig markers (mine don’t look like yours). Thank you for sharing.

  3. Love the backgrounds with the beautifully-colored flower as the focus of the card. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful technique.

  4. The Peonies of this release offer many options to make cards. Your four cards…are all very similar, but just slightly differentshowing the versatility if this release. I love the clear stamping used on the Peony Crush Cling Stamp you used colored cardstock and heat embossing two with clear embossing powder and two with pearl embossing powder. The simple addition of some shimmer marker on the flowers, then die cut with the Double Stitched Rectangle Die make a lovely cards. To contrast your heat embossing if the Dearest Peony stamp onto Bristol cardstock with white & pearl embossing powders, then colored with Zig markers shows the options available. Pink is my favorite and then the addition of the envelopes with label stamps to match cards.

  5. Gorgeous cards, love the coordinating envelope with the happy mail. Your watercolored peonies are amazing!

  6. OMG i really don’t know what is on the top of my wishlist now, i was loving the Wildflower banner stamp and die but now I have seen this set of cards and envelopes, they might be up there! What a great gift for someone or even receiving one in the mail. The matching envelopes are so awesome!
