Prized Peonies with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have shared a number of cards using the Prized Peony Stamp set, today I share how great the images are for coloring with Stampin’ Blends and used the coordinating Peony Dies to cut my flowers and leaves as well as to add a very feminine scalloped edge to one of the layers.

The greetings in this stamp set cover sympathy, love and thanks, friendship and ‘thoughts’ ~ all very useful ones to have in your stash!

Ornate Style with some relaxing Stampin’ Blends Coloring

Welcome back to my corner of the world

My card today carries on this theme – I have chosen to use the big flower stamp from the Ornate Style Stamp Set and some relaxing coloring with Stampin’ Blends.

We were delighted to learn our friends daughter is expecting her first child at the end of this summer, last weekend we found out it will be a little girl!  I know I am old fashioned although I would prefer being called a traditionalist, but I just had to do a pink card!

The Wonderful Moments stamp set has just the perfect image plus the perfect greeting so along with my Stampin’ Blends I was ready to start.

BTW – this stamp set is great for a wedding as well as congratulating a woman on graduation, job promotion, birthday, making an inspirational card  – so check it out at the link below.
