Prized Peony stamp set and the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch, with a new video.

Hello friends. Today we are playing with the Peony Garden product suite and I have also incorporated my fave new punch from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch.

There's lots of layers and textures in this one! Here are the measurements of the layers I have used:

  • Base card is a 14cm x 14cm Blushing Bride card
  • Layer 2 is a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock 13.5cm square, which I have embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder (see links at end of post) which is attached with Stampin' Seal.
  • Layer 3 is a piece of the Gray Granite DSP 11.5cm squared. This acts as a mat to layer 4 (attached with Stampin' Seal), and that combined layer is attached to layer 2 with Dimensionals.
  • Layer 4 is a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock 11cm square, and I have arranged punched Peony Garden DSP over the cardstock, leaving a small gap between each one to show the punched edges and colour through (see picture below which shows how I arranged the punched shapes).
  • Layer 5 is a 7cm square piece of Blushing Bride cardstock, which acts as a mat to Layer 6 (adhered with Stampin' Seal). That combined layer is attached to layer 4 using Dimensionals.
  • Layer 6 is a 6.6cm square piece of Shimmery White cardstock and the sentiment is stamped in Gray Granite.
  • Layer 7 is lots of looped ribbon and trim for texture (see the video below); and finally
  • Level 8 is the single peony stamp from Prized Peony Stamp Set . I embossed it in white, and added a wash of Blushing Bride with my Water Painters, and then added some additional shading with Rococo Rose.

Here's a look at how I did the Rectangle Postage Stamp arrangement. I arranged them on the corder of a piece of A4 cardstock so some would be overlapping the edges and be a straight cut when I trimmed this piece to size.

If you are relatively new to cardmaking, and would like to see how I have used and attached the ribbons and trims for added texture, I have created a short video for you.

Stampin' Up! Australia: Beautiful Peacock for Saleabration 2018

Today's share is another Stampin' Up! Saleabration 2018 product which can be earned for free. This time it's the Beautiful Peacock stamp set. I have also used the Celbrate You Thinlits again (told you they were versatile!).

This is a super easy set to line up (it's photopolymer so use a foam stamping mat underneath when you stamp)  and can be used in many different ways. I wanted quite a simple card today, so I just added some embossing from the Petal Pair embossing folder duo (in Occasions Catalogue) and the Celebrate Youdie cuts. To get the different colours on the feathers, I used a sponge dauber to sponge on a little Bermuda Bay to the feathers stamp that I had already inked up with Lemon Lime Twist.

I also wanted to show you a great trick that was demonstrated at the OnStage training event (another great perk of being a demonstrator) by Brandi, one of our US based trainers. Excuse the photos on these ones, as they were pictures of the video screen.

Brandi started out with the Beautiful Peacock, and it's tail stamped in different colours. This would make a great card by itself, but Brandi wanted to add a real WOW. So she went a couple more steps.

She used some of the Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon (available with 2 other colours as a free level 1 pick in the Saleabration catalogue, but we also have some in other colours in the Annual Catalogue) and pulled the shimmer thread in the ribbon to be ended with a fabulous frayed section of ribbon perfect for a peacocks tail. You can tie one end together securely using the thread you pulled out.

Here's how it looks added to the card with a few extra embellishments.
