Hello, dear readers!

Sveta is here today and I want to share with you two monochromatic cards using incredible Peony Bouquet Stamp set! Most of all I like detailed lines in this stamp set,  so I wanted to create something simple and eye catching. I added only one bold layer of peony’s leaves and used Jet Black Crisp Dye Ink to stamp it so the flower is still the main focal point on the card.  I went with Thinking of you stamp set for the sentiment and decided to pop-up a little stripe. I cut my card into three pieces using my paper trimmer and used a black foam adhesive to adhere a little piece with “thinking of you” words , and  glue for other parts, adhering all of them on a black card base (Jet Black cardstock). This trick added missing interest for such a simple card.




When I made first card I noticed that stamped black leaves look like die-cut when used with black card base. I loved this idea and decided to create a background with black leaves on it. In this card I also divided the sentiment with dimension: I stamped one sentiment along two flowers and adhered on of them using foam tape.

It took some time to get along with this stamp set when I tried it first, but once you’ll find the right position for each layer it becomes pretty clear. I want to share with you “points” that I use for stamp layers positioning:

Inks I used for my peonies:

Frosty Pink Crisp Dye Ink

Cotton Candy Crisp Dye Ink

Ruby Red Crisp Dye Ink

Also I used Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock for my both cards.


Hope my tips were useful and cards were inspiring!

Have a great weekend!
