Tag Archives: Perfect Peony dies
Today’s post is a lot about stamping and a little die cutting. I took an 8 x 8 scalloped card and stamped the Filigree Peony stamp (by John Lockwood) in Brilliance copper ink all around the outside. I used the stamp twice before reinking it giving me the faded look with some of them.
I used the Ravello striplet die which I cut 4 times around a piece of pearlised card to form a square backgrounds and backed this with a copper card cut with the double pierced square dies to leave a small border. I stamped the Tuileries Frame Stamp in perfect medium and embossed it with copper embossing powder. I cut it out with the Auckland die (outside and centre) and trimmed around the stamped part in the centre. I used the decorative centre from the die in the copper card.
I finished the card off with a few gems coloured with copies to match with the card colours.
Today I have a spring birthday card to share with you. I think I am in love with the Honeydew card colour, it is so fresh looking.
I cut the New Zealand Collection Wellington die out of some coconut white card and then rotated it 45 degrees and cut it again. I then backed this with some Honeydew foundation card. I used a tonic die to cover the hole left by the Wellington die then circles to matt the Perspectives Collection Happy Birthday Circle. The outside frames were cut using the noble pierced squares and the 3 flowers in the middle using Finishing Touches – Perfect Peony Complete Petals and Finishing Touches – Perfect Peony Open Petals. The finished card measures 6.5″ square.
