Anniversary set: Pretty Peonies...

Welcome to the last day of the Papertrey 5th Anniversary celebration!  Today the team is featuring projects using the anniversary set.  This year's set is called Pretty Peonies and it is SO pretty!  (Visit the Papertrey Ink website or Nichole's blog to see if you qualified for this year's set or how you can begin working towards earning next year's.)  

I created two cards with this new set.  First up is a very soft card using a technique I've been playing around with a bit.  You've probably noticed that lately I've been having fun playing with my inks and getting different intensities of color by "stamping off" onto scrap paper before stamping onto my project.  I used a variation of that technique on this first card.  I used Berry Sorbet ink and inked up that pretty poeny stamp, then stamped off onto scrap paper.  I then went back and rolled the edges in the ink again before stamping it onto my project. The effect is a pretty shaded look.


I love that big "happy" stamp from the set as well as the coordinating smaller sentiments.  Everything on this card is from the new Pretty Peonies set.  


My second card is also done up in pinks, but it's a ltitle more vibrant than the first.  I just can't help but think pink when I think of peonies.  


For this card, I used some Dearest Jane patterned paper and stamped the peonies in shades of pink, then stamped the coordinating outline image using with Versamark, and heat embossed it with white powder.  It gives a pretty, lacey look.  After the embossing was complete, I want back and used my ink blending tool to add some Sweet Blush ink to the background.  That pretty label is also from the new Peony set.  


I hope you enjoyed today's peek at the new anniversary set!  You can check out the rest of the team's creations using the links below...
