I just love this layered Peony Die from Stampin' Up!. I made the Peonies in several different colors and then picked Cardstock and/or DSP to complement the paper and matching ink color. This flower is made from four die cuts and then assembled. After the individual pieces were die cut, I shaded each piece with a sponge dauber and matching ink around the outside edges. You can see that I applied a wider strip of color to the bottom of each piece, and just a bit of color to the top edge. Then the pieces are assembled from smallest to largest, by inserting them inside the next larger piece. The pieces all align at the bottom edge which is easiest to see from the back of the flower. I attached two glue dots to the bottom of the back of each piece to hold them in place.
The bottom mat for this card was cut from Melon Mambo CS, the next layered mat was cut from some Pop of Pink DSP I had in my stash. The top piece was cut from Whisper White CS using one of the Stitched Seasons Dies, it was popped up with Dimensionals. The stem is from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set, the leaves are from the featured set, both were stamped with Wild Wasabi Ink. The peony for this card was cut from Melon Mambo CS, the edges were sponged with Melon Mambo Ink, and the assembled peony was popped up with Dimensionals. The ribbon was made with some Garden Green Stitched Satin Ribbon and attached with Glue Dots. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set, was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White CS using Melon Mambo Ink, and cut out with one of the Stitched Label Dies. Lastly I added some coordinating Enamel Shapes.
The bottom mat for this next card was cut from Soft Sea Foam CS, the next layered mat was cut from some Twinkle Twinkle DSP I had in my stash. The top piece was cut from Soft Sea Foam CS using the rectangle die from the Nature's Thoughts Die Set and popped up with Dimensionals.. I stamped the large stemmed peony from the featured set on a scrap piece of Whisper White CS using Memento Ink and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut off the large peony flower and colored the remaining stem and leaves using the Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends and the bud using the Magenta Madness Stampin' Blends. This piece was glued directly to the mat. The peony for this card was cut from Magenta Madness CS, the edges were sponged with Magenta Madness Ink, and the assembled peony was popped up with Dimensionals. I used the same sentiment as above but stamped it using Magenta Madness Ink and then lastly added some Enamel Dots.
