Peony

Wow! Have you seen the inspiring photos for PTI’s January Blog Hop!?

Isn’t this one lovely?

Beautiful little paper heartsI loved the soft blue, pinks and greens as well as the rose.

Here’s a card inspired by it.

IMG_9042editedI used PTI’s Peony Cover Plate Die to cut out a variety of layers of SU papers. Before I cut the papers I did some ink blending in order to make some different shades of the various colors. Per Laura Bassen’s advice in her Craftsy class, I bought a Quickstik tool. It is “rockin’ awesome” as she would say. 🙂 This card was a bit fussy, but it would have been infuriately tedious without the Quickstik. I highly recommend it.

Here’s another look at my card which I will be playing over at Uniko Studio’s Challenge #17: Love and Friendship.
