Peony


Two posts in one day? That doesn't happen often! What does happen, though, is that when I have my Shape Mates on my workspace I seem to want to use them on every card I'm making and I decided I'd make another aperture card too.
You've seen this Peony on my blog before - coloured Rose pink but I have used Carmine and Ruby Promarkers this time. The Peony itself (as you probably know by now ..) is from the Peony set of stamps from my new Pick of the Bunch collection by Tonic Studios and because it's so bright I thought I would keep most of the rest of the card white. I made a frame with the Oval shape mate and put a little trellis behind it (the trellis die should be available soon with some of my other dies in the collection) then matted another piece of white cardstock on 3d foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L  with a border down each side made with the Tonic Studios Victorian border punch

  2. Hi Ruth..Lovely Peony! Great coloring as always you do! I haven't been by your blog in awhile. Nor have I seen you around PCP.. but then again I have some forums to catch up on while I was away from the site for a bit myself .. I just wanted to let you know I love the card you made! I also just bought a few stamps from your shop so I'm looking forward to working with them! Especially the Sweet Pea... as that is my very favorite flower (smelling wise) .. I used to buy the best lotion with that smell .. I may have to do that again if the store I like still carries it.. Anyway.. thought to pop in here and say hello. Hope you are doing well!
