Prized Peony – Makeover Monday

Greeting cards created by Julie Gilson, www.stampingala.com with Stampin' Up'! products.

Welcome to Makeover Monday!!

Greeting card created with Stampin' Up's Prized Peony Bundle. #Stampin' Gala, #Birthday, #Handmade cards, #Makeover Monday

Today’s card is a “stepped up” version of yesterday’s Simple Sunday card.  Whether you are a simple crafter or prefer more detail on your cards, I have something for you every week.  

The image is stamped in Memento Ink and colored with Real Red and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  The image is very easy to color, because the shading is done for you in the stamp itself.

If you don’t recognize the Designer Series Paper, it is the from the Playful Pets Pack.  I simply used the Real Red Stampin’ Blends Dark Marker to color in between some of the lines.  

There are several layers on this card including the circles from the Stitched Shapes Dies and the Layering Circle Dies.  The scalloped border is part of the Prized Peony Bundle.

The stamp set has some beautiful images and coordinating dies.  The dies are very unique.  You can create 3D flowers with them.
