Concord & 9th

Painted Peonies and Background stamps

Hey there stamping friends. Today on the YouTube channel you will find Episode 2 of my May Stamp Set of the Month series. This month I am featuring the Painted Peony stamp set by Concord & 9th.  This is a beautiful layering stamp set, with stunning florals. I fell in love with this floral set and am excited to play with it and create different ideas with this set for you. If you missed the first episode you can view it here.

In this episode I am pairing layering background stamps with the Painted Peonies. I love background stamps and Concord & 9th have some of my faves!  Turnabout stamps allow you to stamp one background in multiple colors and I will be using another background stamp that layers!

Take a look at today's cards. Both cards measure 5" x 5". I love a fun and different size for my cards!  

The first background I used is the Polka Dot Turnabout Stamp set. I used 4 shades of yellow on this stamp to create the background. And even splattered it a bit with purple metallic watercolor.

And here you can see the peony with all it's layers in purple. For today's cards I used ink from Altenew. I love that their ink comes in collections of four that layer good together. Perfect for layered stamping like this. I have all the inks I used linked for you below. 

The second background I used is the Gingham background stamp set. It has two pieces in it so you can layer the stitched criscross image over the top.

I love gingham and plaid, so this stamp is definitely one of my faves!  Even thought peonies are not blue I thought this color of flower would look great with a yellow background. I love that with stamps you can make the impossible, beautiful.

I just love stamping the three stamps in this set and see the layers come together to create this beautiful flower. 

You can see it come together in the video below.
