Painted Peonies – two ways

Painted Peonies – two ways

Hi Everyone,

I am excited to share a new video on the Foiled Fox youtube channel featuring the gorgeous Painted Peony stamp and die set by Concord & 9th. This stamp set has all the elements for you to make an awesome floral display. I have created two card designs using this set.


Check out the video to show you all the steps.

Below you get an up-close and personal look at the two designs below.

Starting with the large peony card design, I made a splattered background using a piece of acetate to apply the paint and distress ink colors: Speckled Egg, Iced Spruce, and a little Peeled Paint.

I colored the large blossom with distress inks (see supply list) but then switched to my new fav, Karin Brushmarkers for the smaller flowers, leaves, and berries. These brush markers offer amazing vibrant color and are sooooo versatile and fun!

The Geometrix Hexagon frame from Papertrey Ink adds another element to complete the picture.

For the next card design, using a 4.25″ wide piece of double-thick cardstock, I created a curved edge by using one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border dies, then placed this curved edge piece in the new Mod Squares embossing folder by Altenew. It was then applied to a Simply Chartreuse card stock card base.

(Oops… I just discovered that the video shows embossing the double-thick cardstock, then cutting the edge. You will have better results if you do it as described above – cut the edge, then emboss – that way the embossing is unaffected.)

Then, using the remaining pieces (flowers, leaves, and berries), I arranged the floral display. They were adhered with some foam tape for the flowers and glue for the other pieces.

There are lovely sentiments included in this stamp set. So to finish, I stamped each of these cards with one using the Versafine Clair Morning Mist waterproof ink and added a few enamel dots to the smaller card.
