Peony cards

I have a couple of cards using some different peony stamps from Unity Stamp Co.

This first one uses an older set with a lot of fussy cutting.




I started by cutting a frame die in white and using a small spring stamp to randomly stamp all around it. I stamped 2 peonies and to leaf/stems and colored them up. I used four colors of pink Copics using the 3 lightest on one flower and the 3 darkest on the other. I arranged them in and around the frame and tacked them in place with some glue. I stamped a flourish background and heat embossed it with white embossing powder for the back ground. I cut that down with a stitch die and matted it in black. The frame and flowers were centered on that.

If you look close you can see the white embossing. It's really pretty in person. I realized too late that my stem and slipped to the side so it's in a strange place. 

The second card uses a couple of stamps from Unity Stamp Co.'s November Kit of the Month. It is entered in a black and white challenge on their Facebook Show and Tell board.


I stamped the border stamp using my Misti on one edge, then I just flipped the card around to do the other side to get them same placement.

Copics used:
Light flower: R81, R83, R85
Dark Flower: R83, R85, R89
Centers: Y15, YR23
Leaves: YR23, YG63, YG67

Raven Girl card

Hello everyone. I spent most of October planning and hosting my daughter's baby shower. It went amazing and I was so happy to do this for her. Now I am getting back into my regular routine of making whatever the inspiration wants me to. Unity Stamp Co has a line of stamps called Angie Girls created by the amazing Angie Blom. They were on sale this week and I had to get some that have been on my wish list forever. I decided to make a card using one I haven't gotten to yet while I wait for my order to come.

This is Raven girl. Isn't she amazing. I love that Angie girls come in all sizes and shapes. Unity Stamp Co also started making and selling their own patterned papers recently. This layout uses 2 pieces from one of the packs. I used this paper for my color inspiration.

Copics used:
Shirt-RV93, RV95, RV99
Pants & hat-colored everything with C3, then used E25 & E29
Vase-E42, E43
Flowers-B95, center E25
Leaves-YG83
Hair-E08, E39, E29
Skin-E00, E21
