Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. I am SO excited to share this beautiful new suite with you called Prized Peony. If you watch my daily Facebook live videos you will have seen the last two creations. Now you get to see them on my blog.


Prized Peony Perfection


One of the best things about Stampin’Up! is their coordination. This suite is no exception and it makes it so easy and so fun to create beautiful things. There is the stamp set with the coordinating dies, the matching paper, ribbon and gems. Wow! Such beautiful subtle colours that can be left muted or can be combined with other things for a dramatic pop of colour. You choose!

My Cards


This first card was made using a sketch challenge for a Canadian Direct Demonstrators meeting. I don’t often use sketches, but they are fun to do and it is always interesting to see what other people do with the same sketch.

Here is the sketch that I used so that you can see the measurements.

More Cards


During the video we had to choose which side of the patterned paper to use and the votes came in for petal pink. Of course I needed to now create a card with the other side too, just so that it wouldn’t feel badly! Here it is:


Prized Peony in Petal Pink and Grey Granite


Just in case you are wondering where the framelit from the sentiment came from, it is in the Tasteful Touches bundle. The last card I am going to show you is my very favourite. I love jewel tones so I am glad that I still have my Lovely Lipstick blends. If you missed out, I happen to have two extra sets! I did create the card with Rococo Rose as well and it is pretty too.


Prized Peony in Lovely Lipstick


I took a close up picture so you can see the sheen of the ribbon as well as the “cut” of the gems. They really are stunning and put your card up to the next level of awesomeness. Sympathy cards don’t have to be drab. The burst of colour represents the vibrancy and the love of the person who will be missed.

Rococo Rose Prized Peony


It would be unwise of me to only show you a card with a product that you can no longer get, so shove over Lovely Lipstick and make room for Rococo Rose. It turned out brighter than I expected and I am also curious if you could blend it with a little bit of real red for greater intensity.



Just in case you think you are seeing double, you are! For this picture I just laid my Rococo Rose peony on top of the Lovely Lipstick one. I didn’t feel like making another complete card.


My Video


Here is a video showing you how I made the first card. Just take a look at the first few minutes if you only want to see the paper and the coordinating items and not the actual making of the card. If you like it, please share so that others will follow my YouTube channel as well. Somehow this squirrel wants to get more views on YouTube. It remains a mystery to me that I have so many followers but so few views, so please help me!



Free Bundle Promotion


Yes, you can get this gorgeous Prized Peony bundle for free as a bonus when you get the starter kit. Here is the link to make it easy for you. It remains a mystery to me that not every single customer of mine would take me up on this offer. I would get another starter kit myself if I could! The savings are tremendous and it will feel like Christmas in June for you. Questions? Concerns? Don’t hesitate to message me and I will be happy to address them. In the meantime, thanks for stopping by and have a super day.
