Stamp Focus: Peony Bouquet

by yana.smakula

Hello, everyone! Yana is here sharing a closer look at the absolutely beautiful Peony Bouquet stamp set.

Peony_Bouquet_grande

This set was inspired from an exquisite bouquet of peonies painted by our artist friend from Japan. The fine shade lines give the flowers and leaves incredible depth, and a life-like appearance. There are two 4-layered peonies and two 3-layered leaves along with 2-layer berries and a branch of small leaves. The outline images can be used with the multi-layer system, or used alone, giving you many options for a variety of looks. This is the latest in our multi-layered floral stamp sets, and we are sure that you will love it as much as our previous sets!

I’ve had the pleasure of creating many projects using this fabulous set. I featured it in one of my CHA Workshop cards here, and created another project you can spot on the product page. Here I’d like to share additional examples.

Stamp Focus: Peony Bouquet

I started by using gold heat embossing for the outline for my first project. I love how thin and detailed it is, looks very elegant. I added a simple Sending Love sentiment and framed it using one of the antique trims.

For my second project I stamped a pattern and added a touch of light pink and aqua. The variety of images in this stamp set lets you create so many things.

I added a simple You Inspire Me sentiment and topped this project with a few clear drops.

For my final project I went with my favorite color combo – blue and green. I did a little bit of masking to create this one layer card.

For my sentiment I combined words from two sets – Beautiful Lady and Painted Greetings.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you feel inspired to create!

Yana, are all your Gorgeous cards one layer cards? What coloring method do you use? Thanks :)

Reply
yana.smakula January 22, 2016 - 10:42

thank you!
oh no, I rarely do truly one layer, I always struggle with one layer cards, always want to add more! These I didn’t color at all, just used stamps and inks. As for other cards of mine – I like watercolor, sometimes copics.

Love this stamp set and the cards you made. I’m delighted I ordered this set before it sold out, but I did want to say I’m disappointed the name of the set wasn’t printed on the index sheet for this release (at least on this set). I know it’s a very minor point, but I liked how the prior stamp sets had the name printed on the index sheet – it worked well with my stamp storage system.
