Whimsy Stamps - Peony Flowers!

Howdy -

Shocker alert here...  I didn't color todays card! But I did have a lot of fun making it! Have you seen Whimsy Stamps new Peony Flower Die set? Oh my can you say "in love"?  Created by one of my crafting hero's and happy to say friends Bev Rochester! This set has moved to the top of my favorites with just my first use!

Here is my first card with all the pretty Peony Flowers I made.


I die cut LOTS of flowers in the three sizes, with core'dinations card stock. And then a few of the leaves as well.  I sanded each flower to show off the great layers of the core'dinations card stock. I kept a wet paper towel and got each flower damp and rolled the edges of each petal, then sat aside to dry. Once dry I inked the edges with Ranger Distress Ink and then stacked them up and put together with brads. Did the same with the leaves. Then I found a piece of Paper Studio pattern kraft paper along with a light brown card stock. I die cut out the new Whimsy die "Cherry Blossom Panel" and inked it to give more contrast. Then sewed all the layers together and found one more Whimsy Stamps Word die "celebrate" for my sentiment.

So happy with the vintage feel of this one! And ADORE those flowers! Sitting here on pins and needles waiting for the next new set! LOL
