anniversary set: pretty peonies


Papertrey Ink's 5th Anniversary means the reveal of the new anniversary set Pretty Peonies. This is such a beautiful set. I have two cards to share with you today using the set.


If you like building backgrounds with the Rosie Posie set, you will really enjoy this anniversary set. I stamped the Peony flower in Scarlett Jewel and added the leaves with Ripe Avocado. In between the flowers I stamped the smaller flower outline in Classic Kraft ink. The result is like a pretty fabric that you would make a quilt with.


I used a Mega Mat Stack 5 die cut from kraft cardstock that I trimmed and stitched down to the bottom card edge. The butterfly image is stamped in kraft and then I stamped the sentiment in Smokey Shadow ink.


I used a combination of Rustic Cream, Fine Linen, and kraft for this monochromatic card design. I also added in the Garden Variety set to stamp in the background with the outline flowers that are embossed in clear.


I layered the frame image that is one of two included in the set onto a Mat Stack 1 die cut from kraft cardstock. Lots of distressing pull the card design together.

Make sure to visit Nichole's blog to link up to the whole design team and to get all the details on how you can get this set.
