Hello Lovelies and welcome back to my blog! I hope you’re doing well and having a fabulous day! Today’s project is featuring the Lush Peonies product suite. I really love how PinkFresh has so many options for creating! This set has a matching stencil to add color, but you can totally choose to color this set with markers or pencils as well and it would be equally as beautiful! So let’s get into the details for this project!
I began by stamping the PFS Lush Peonies on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossing it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I adhered the first coordinating stencil to the panel using masking tape and began adding color, making my way through the set of stencils. The colors that I used were Coral Reef, Passion Fruit, Ocean Breeze and Marigold. I think this turned out to be a really beautiful color combination!
Once the stenciling was done, I used the coordinating die to trim it out. I set that aside while I worked on the background. I used the PFS Simply Hexagons to cut one panel from Neenah 110lb and I cut another panel from a piece that I had ink blended using the same Ocean Breeze ink. I adhered these two together using liquid glue, and off-setting them just slightly so that you could still see the blue portion. Once they were glued, I did have to trim off the excess from the off-set.
For some additional leaves, because we all know that I have to have additional leaves, I used the PFS Curvy Leaves die and cut a few of those. The sentiment is one that I already had in my stash, but it was made using the PFS Perfect Sentiments Hot Foil Plate and die, along with Spellbinders Gold Hot Foil and black cardstock.
Now that I had everything, I was ready to assemble! I adhered the hexagon background to the card base using liquid glue and adhered the peonies and leaves using a combination of glue and foam tape for support. The sentiment was also glued directly to the hexagon panel. It needed a little extra something, so I found this butterfly from my stash as well and added that with a little dot of glue. The butterfly was made using the PFS Small Butterflies Hot Foil Plate and die, along with acetate and the same gold foil as before. Of course I had to add some PFS Gold Metallic Pearls to finish it off!
That does it for this project! I hope you enjoyed it! Thanks again for stopping by and don’t forget to stay awesome!
