Sunny Studio Stamps Basket of Peonies

 Hello Friends and thank you so much for visiting today!

Today's card features a beautiful basket of pink peonies courtesy of the Sunny Studio Stamps Pink Peonies Stamp Set. I've also used some other goodies from Sunny Studio and I'll break that all down so let's jump into it!

I was really wanted to watercolor some flowers the other day.  I decided to pull out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and the Sunny Studio Stamps Pink Peonies Stamps.  

I started out by stamping all the images in the set with versamark ink and heat emboss it with WOW Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine embossing powder onto a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock .  I've had good luck with this cardstock when I am using my Zig markers.


I watercolored the floral images with Light Carmine and Light Pink by applying the markers directly to the paper.  I used a wet paintbrush to smooth out and blend the colors to prevent any harsh lines.  The leaves were colored with Turquoise green and Light Green.  I fussy cut out all the images out once they were dry.


To hold my peony bouquet I stamped and cut out the Sunny Studio Stamps Layered Basket.  I decided to try out stamping the basket on some My Favorite Things Craft Cardstock.  My thought was that it would a good base since it is a brown color! I stamped the layers of the basket in Distress Oxide ink in the colors Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.

Next I needed a lovely background. I wanted a dainty and Spring like background.  I die cut the Sunny Studio Stamps Frilly Frames Eyelet Lace Die from some Hammermill 100lb Cardstock in white.  I love that die! It has an optional scallop border you can use with it that really makes it even prettier!

To add a little pop of color to peek through the dainty flowers I ink blended a 4x5 1/4 panel of Hammermill with Pinkfresh Studio Soft Lilac dye ink. I adhered this panel to the back of the Eyelet Lace panel using Tombow Adhesive Runner Tape.

I wanted to add more Soft Lilac to my card so I created my own custom cardstock by ink blending onto some white cardstock.  I die cut and layered up 2 layers of the word "You" from the Pinkfresh Studios Thin Words Everyday Script die set for my sentiment.  I cut it once from my soft lilac paper and once from white.  Glossy Accents made it shine!

For my sub sentiment I stamped the words "From my heart" onto piece of "custom cardstock" made with Pinkfresh Studio Candy Violet ink.  I trimmed the sentiment down so that it would nestle nicely under my "You" die cut sentiment.

I started assembling my card by adhering my panels onto an A2 side folded card base.  My card base was made from Hammermill 100lb white Cardstock.  Next I glued down my layered basket using some Bearly Arts Prescision Glue.


I grabbed my stamped images and started the grueling task of arranging them.  This is usually the hardest part of using flower images for me.  Finally 2 hours later (just kidding) I was happy with my placement so I used some press n' seal to pick up my images so I could apply glue to the back.  I positioned my florals onto the basket.

My sentiments were adhered to the upper left corner of my card.  The final touch was some Sunny Studio Stamps Iridescent Jewels! 

I love how this card came out! Let me know what you think!
