It's an Altenew Peony World

As I mentioned, I'm now playing catch up with taking photos of cards and projects as well as getting them posted.  This is the last of the Mother's Day cards that I made this year.  I used my new Altenew Peony Bouquet stamp set to create these lovelies and couldn't resist sharing with you.  I stamped and die cut a bunch of these and decided to use them to make my cards.

The inks are all Simon Says Stamp's hybrid inks.  I didn't write down the color combinations, but suggest that you play with the stamp pads you have.  No need to go out and buy a bunch of inks for this stamp set!

I kept the design simple to keep these flowers the center of attention.  In the future, I intend to use a second generation stamp for the leaf background portion as I lost a bit of crispness to the image since my green hybrid combination covers some of the detail.  Still, the finished results pleased me and their recipients.

If you haven't tried out the layering stamps, I highly recommend them.  They are fantastic and the result is simply gorgeous.

I'm entering these cards in the following challenges:
