Oh happy day! We’re celebrating the new May release with a give away! We’ve added two new stamp sets with coordinating dies as well as two sets of stackable dies to the store!
Today I’m playing with the Peony Bloom Layer A die. This is just one of the three Peony Bloom layer dies that are stackable. You can use them individually like I did here today, or together for lots of added dimension!
I’m so happy that the leaves are separate from the flower so you can cut them from a different color card stock if you like. For my design today I cut everything from white card stock.
Next I adhered the die cut to a panel covered in double sided tape.
I carefully added glitter to the sheet. Just press the glitter into the sticky tape. I used three shades of red for the flowers starting with light in the center and adding a slightly darker shade as I moved further away from the flower center. You want to be careful along the edges so the red doesn’t spill into areas where you don’t want it. If some accidentally spills over you can use a pick or needle to scrape out the color. This is a quick fix for small areas, I would start over for a large spill. If you don’t want to work with colorful ink you can color the background panel with markers or distress ink, adhere the double sided tape, and then sprinkle on crystal glitter.
I adhered the leaves to a separate panel covered in double sided tape, glittered them and then fussy cut them before adding them to my card. Dave Brethauer, the creator of these beautiful designs made a video for this technique that you can watch here on You Tube.
The sentiment is from the new Make A Statement stamp set. I used the coordinating die set to cleanly cut the “thanks” sentiment.
