Sunday Sketches - Prized Peony Bundle

Hello Stampers,

It is Sunday Sketch time, Alison Solven from Canada here today.

Each Sunday Patsy Waggoner from the US (my border buddy) and I take turns creating a card using one of our card sketches.  Sketches can help get your creative juices flowing. I find that when I'm stuck and seem to have lost my stampin' mojo a sketch can give me the spark I need.  They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way. 

Sunday Sketches Prized Peony 6

Today's card features products from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue. The Prized Peony Bundle is part of the Peony Garden Suite Collection. I love Collections because they make coordination so easy with products that go together.

You can create a card using the sketch exactly as it's presented or switch it up - it's meant to be a starting point for your creativity.

  3. Cut out the 1 7/8" circle from the Gray Granite using the Stitched Shapes Dies and the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.
  4. Stamp the sentiment in Versamark on the circle, apply White Emboss Powder and heat set.
  5. Pop up the circle with Stampin' Dimensionals in the middle of the DSP strip.
