Sponge edges of banner with Magenta Hue and inside with Vivid Chartreuse ink. Use the same 2 inks for bicycle.

Use the Floral Basics shaping mold to shape petals or simply shape with shaping stylus. If using the shaping mold, place the petals stamped side up into the mold and mist with water. Assemble the peony petals into 2 bud forms and 3 tiny ones. Shape the stems, leaves and banner with stylus. Remove the green buds from stem with a scissors.

For more tips on creating with the Sweet Peony collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/L9_MLkvpGPQ.

Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. There are many instructions for making a gift bag found on Pinterest and Splitcoast Stampers. I found one and made the bag using a piece of the pretty Sweet Peony Paper Collection then I began to decorate. I used the Velcro Dots for the closure on the bag flap and then die cut one of the ornate borders dies to add to the closure. I cut a coordinating piece of cardstock and then glued down the border die cut and then glued the paper piece over that. It gives the bag a very romantic feel.

I stamped the daisies using Rich Cocoa ink and then colored the centers of the flowers with Sap green. Next I shaped the flower petals with the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit and then added some glue to the center of the petals to glue down the Flower Soft. Set them aside to dry. I stamped the Sweet Peony petals with Berrylicious ink and also colored the edges with the same color. Next I stamped the leaves with Stazon Olive Green Ink. I used the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit again to shape all the leaves and petals. I created a cluster of flowers and leaves on the front of the bag and glued the pieces down. Once everything is dry the bag is finished. This makes a quick and easy gift bag and it becomes part of the gift.

For more tips on creating the Sweet Peony collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/L9_MLkvpGPQ.

Instructions: Card base and Top Panel: The ready side fold card measures 5 1/2" x 8". To create the card base, cut a piece of smooth card stock measuring 11" x 8" and score at 5 1/2" on the longer side. Choose and cut a piece of paper from the designer paper collect, measuring 5" x 7 1/2". Glue it to the white card sheet. On right, up on the corner of the back, glue another sheet from the designer paper collection. Now, distress all the edges with Aged Mohagony and further distress them using the paper distressing tool. Roll the paper from the right side as shown and glue it with hot glue. Layer the rolled panel on the light green, distressed card panel measuring 1/8" larger to the rolled panel. Adhere a pink die cut on the base and the back using Spellbinder's Grate Effect Card Creator dies. Further layer the prepared panel on the card base.

Flowers: Stamp second large and third large images of peonies using archival ink, Plum. Cut them using their coordinating dies. Color the flower centers with leaf green. Also, color the flower petals with Rose Madder and highlight the edges with Magenta Hue. Also, color the back side of the petals. Shape the flowers using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Glue 2 petals each and press the center with a smaller ball tool. Prick a hole in the center and add a bunch of beaded thread stamens. Create 2 big, 2 small flowers and 2 small white flowers.

Leaves: Stamp bunch of leaves from Classic Rose stamp using archival, Library Green and cut the images with it's coordinating die. Color them using Leaf Green and Olive Green archival inks. Shape them using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Also, stamp, cut, paint and shape foliage from Simply Classic stamp and die set.

Filler Flowers: For filler flowers, stamp, cut, paint and shape few smallest flowers from Wildwood Floral Collection I have used Magenta Hue and Buttercup Archival inks to paint these flowers.

Butterflies: The butterfly images from Butterfly Medley Stamp are stamped on vellum using versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Die-cut them using it's coordinating die.

Once all the elements are ready, arrange a bouquet as shown, glue butterflies, add sparkle using crystal clear and finish the card by adding a sentiment from the paper collection.

For more tips on creating with the Sweet Peony collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/L9_MLkvpGPQ.

Instructions:

For Card Base: Card base is 5x7" on white card. Stamp out one large blossom and 2 small blossoms from the Peony Bud and Blossom Cling stamp using versa mark ink onto Canson watercolor paper. Apply a coat of white embossing powders and heat set. Do this to all three.

Using your Zig Clean Color Brush Markers color all three images using the colors mentioned. I placed yellow in the centers first then went from lightest to darkest, blending out with my water brush. The dark red I only needed to add very small amounts to the tops of the petals. I kept paper towel close to dab off excess color.

Once you are happy with your coloring set aside to dry. In mean time cut a 4.75 x 6.75" on Canson water color paper, tape off edges with blue painters tape. I did this to create a border. Take the Antique Linen distress marker and using the brush end go around the taped edge and create a thick line. Take your water brush and blend this edge out to the center.

Check your colored images and make sure they are dry; die cut these out using the coordinating die set. Set on taped off card to get an idea where you would like them to go. Use the antique Linen marker in the area where the cluster of peonies will go and add some shadow, blend out edges to smoothe the line. Heat set to dry.

Using the small peony bud image stamp in three random areas on outside edge with versa mark ink and apply white embossing powder; shake off excess and heat set. Place down colored images again to decide where you would like your sentiment to go and stamp with black tuxedo ink. Place large peony down first and tuck in one of the smaller ones in bottom left. I decided to place the second smaller peony on lower right corner and trimmed off the edge. I went over the peonies with wink of stella clear. Attach to card base.

For more tips on creating with the Sweet Peony collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/L9_MLkvpGPQ.

Instructions: Card size: 5" X 5 1/2". Start by cutting folded ivory card with the Decorative Oval, leaving top 1/2" of die off the top of the fold. Cut another decorative Oval out of decorative paper and glue to front side of shaped card base. Cut Decorative medallion base layer out of magenta and one from Ivory. Cut the decorative Medallion from decorative paper (medium pink) and from ivory, this will be the "stand" for the card. To make the card sturdier I cut a piece of acetate and glued it to the back of the card over the oval. I also cut a piece of decorative paper to cover the back inside oval as well (both are glued to the back of the card). The paper can be seen from the front of the card so choose something pretty. Glue the "stands" on and make sure they are level so that the card sits properly.

Stamp sentiment with Lilac Posies (a dark pink or magenta ink) on light pink decorative paper then die cut with an oval die. Die cut a dark pink oval for a mat and glue to sentiment then glue to the front of the card, centering. Now stamp and die cut Peony Bud and Bloom twice each then color. Cut out forward parts of the flower bloom and bud from second set and glue/foam tape to matching parts of base flower and bud to give it more 3D dimension. (Shape flower a bit from the back on a flower shaping pad with the large stylist) Glue some Prills to the very center where the stamped stamen are. Sponge glue onto bloom and bud and glitter with Crystal Clear. Decorate the card front with the bloom and bud, adding in a few leaves.

Use Stack and Store Daubers to color the large peonies using Rose Madder and Vibrant Fuchsia Archival Ink and the small peonies with Tiger Lily Archival Ink. Shape them using 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold & Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

Instructions: Cut a card base from White card stock 10 inches by 7 inches, score at 5 inches on the longer side. Fold. Cut a pattern paper from paper collection and adhere to the card front, leaving about 1/8 inch all around.

Cut two strips of paper 2 by 5" and distress with Picked raspberry ink. Stamp the peony flower image on it and let it dry. With a water color brush, pick up the colors of the stamped flower. Keep dabbing with tissue paper to get off extra ink and water. This will give a bleached look to the flowers.

Adhere the two panels on the card front as shown, leaving a gap in between. Stamp the large sweet peony image and the buds with black ink on white card stock. Colour the images with watercolor pencils. Stamp the leaves with Library green ink and color with leaf green ink, cut with coordinating dies and shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool Kit.

Cut an eyelet oval with white cardstock. Layer another oval die cut on top. Distress the edges with Picked Raspberry ink. Stamp the sentiment.

Adhere the oval stamped die cut in the centre. Add the flowers and buds with foam tape. Add some clear water droplets to finish the card.

Instructions: The floral patterned paper is the background. Cut white cardstock to 10x10", and 9.5x9.5". Distress the edges of the white cardstock. Mat your photo in white cardstock twice and distress the edges of those layers. Take the 9.5x9.5" piece of white cardstock and add color around where the matted photo will be in the middle using the Close To My Heart, Flaxen ink and a blending tool. Using the Heidi Swapp Shimmer Misters add splatters of color along the middle of the layout. Let dry. Using 3D foam tape adhere the two large white cardstock layers to the floral background.

Cut a piece of the coral patterned paper that is 0.75x9" and tear each end. Cut a piece of the yellow patterned paper that is 1.5x8". Adhere these layers up the middle of the layout. Adhere the matted photo to the middle of the layout using 3D foam squares. Find and die cut out the pink mini tag and adhere above the matted photo using crafty foam tape. Add the ivory burlap string bow. Find and cut out the small light blue journal block and split it in half. Adhere to the top and bottom of the matted photo.

Stamp and die cut 4 sets of the Small Sweet Peony images using Smoothie ink. Using Blush ink and daubers add color to the middles of all of the flowers. Using liquid adhesive add Crystal Clear Glitter to the tips of all of the petals. Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the Small Sweet Peony images using Early Espresso ink. Using Baroque Burgundy ink and daubers, add color to all of the flowers. Flip these flowers over and mist the backs with the Raspberry Shimmer Mister. Let dry. Shape all of the flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

Assemble the flowers, creating 4 larger and 2 smaller layered flowers. Add gems to the middle of all of the coral/pink flowers. Add gems and stamen to the middles of the burgundy flowers. Stamp and die cut a few of the smaller leaves from the Large Sweet Peony set, and lots of the Small Sweet Peony leaves using Early Espresso ink. Add color to the leaves using Seaweed and Green Apple ink. Shape the leaves.

Create ivory burlap string loops (3) to add on either side of the matted photo with the burgundy flowers. Add the other large and small coral/pink flowers on either side of the matted photo. I always add the leaves after I have attached my flowers. Find and die cut out the "You Are My Everything" ticket adhere it to the top right hand corner of the layout using 3D foam tape. Then add a small coral/pink flower and leaves to the end.

Instructions:  Click here to go to my blog for more detailed photos. The finished size of this Z card is 7.28" x 17" (18.5cm x 15cm). Taking the white cardstock and cut for the card base 5.82" x 12"(14.8 cm x 30.5cm) Make folds at one end, 2.36"x 4.72" (6cm and 12cm) this will be the card foot. Taking the pink card stock cut a card front measuring 4.13 x 7.48" (10.5cm x 19cm). Make a fold in one end for a hinge. .059" (1.5cm) Center this, and adhere the hinge to the front top edge of the card base. Taking the pink card stock cut the matting for the card base and the foot folds of the card. Cut the matting a little smaller than the white card stock. Find from the paper collection the design with the Peonies and the flowerbed scenery. Cut a second layer of matting for the card with this cutting a little smaller than the pink card stock. Adhere all layers of the matting to the card front but before adhering the inside card front pink card stock and paper print, first wrap the ribbon around both layers and adhere in place then adhere both layers to the card base. For the inside sentiment and decoration; cut from the pink cardstock for the inside card sentiment 3.74" x 5.70" (9.5cm x14.5cm). Taking a piece of white card stock cut this to 2.16" x 3.34" (5.5cm x 8.5cm).

Taking the stamp with the sentiment and Maroon ink, stamp the sentiment and diecut. Adhere in place with 3D foam tape. Taking the 'Peony Bud and Blossom' stamp and matching die sets stamp, die cut and color both sizes of the peonies. Adhere these in place with the 3d foam tape. To make the flowers use the stamps and dies for the Sweet Peonies, stamp using the Archival inks and white card-stock. Bring color to the stamped flower petals and leaves with the 3D stamping inks. This will give a beautiful metallic sheen to your flowers. Taking the Crop-a-dile, make a small hole in the center of each petal. Using the flower shaping molds bring shape to the petals. The rose flower-shaping mold was used for the peonies. The yellow stamens are used for the peony centers. Thread the stamens through the holes as you stack the flower petal layers. See the video to see how this is done. Use the clear drying glue to apply the glitter to the flower petals and leaf veins. To decorate the card front flap, make a triple bow from the ribbon with aid of the Zutter bow maker. Adhere this to the front flap.

Arrange the flowers in a cluster tucking the peony buds and leaves under the bow and flowers and adhere. Once all the embellishments are secured to the card front flap adhere the sentiment to the top of the flowers with the hot glue gun. Using the white card stock, stamp the 'Praying For You' with the maroon ink, then heat set with the clear embossing powder. Die cut the sentiment with the matching die. Color the sentiment with a green wash from the moss green stamping paint. Apply a little clear drying glue across the card front flap and card front, sprinkle the glitter and leave to dry.

Next take your piece of pink foam and diecut the eyelet circle die. Then, using the next die in the set, diecut a piece of the Sweet Peony paper and adhere to your pink foam eyelet diecut.

Instructions: To make this 5" x 6" card start by taking a piece of orange card stock that measures 5" x 12" and score at the 6" mark. Cover the front of the card in a piece of paper from the Sweet Peony Paper Collection that measures 4 3/4" x 5 3/4" and layer another piece of ivory card stock with the same measurements on the inside. I wanted the large flower image to extend off the page by having only part of the image die cut. To do this you need to place only the portion that you want die cut between the cutting plates of your die cutting machine. Only the portion of the die between the plates will cut leaving the remainder uncut.

The Peony flowers were stamped on white card stock using VersaMark and heat embossed with Tea Rose Embossing Powder before die cutting with the matching die and distressed with Orange Blossom ink. After the flowers were distressed they were shaped with the 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold and the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit before accenting the centers with Stamens.

The leaves and leaf flourishes were stamped on white card stock using Versamark and heat embossed with fern green embossing powder before die cutting with the matching dies and distressed with Pearlescent Thyme. Finally the sentiment was stamped directly on the front of the card using Versamark and heat embossed with Orange Blossom embossing powder.

Love the Peony and the Lilac collections. When I clicked on to the upcoming preview page for the Butterfly Dream collection, it went back to the Peony collection. Otherwise that, I think that the inspiration pieces are gorgeous! I really like the Birthday Blossom, it is very elegant.

It has taken me a good hour to take a careful look at all these creative inspirations!! So many gorgeous floral displays! I decided that I couldn't choose a favorite. This Sweet Peony Collection is so versatile! Your video tutorial demonstrates that very concept. Beautiful Spring drama in all its glory!
