Spring has sprung and we're about to hit peak peony season, so we thought we'd celebrate by taking a closer look at the Painted Peony Bundle! This is a layering stamp set with a coordinating die that cuts around the floral images so you canbuild bouquets of these gorgeous flowers! Each blossom has three layers and the leaves have two. Every time you stamp another layer it adds detail and creates depth, giving you these beautiful floral images with a painted look to them.
We have three fantastic new guest designers joining us for our April Feature Fridays and they have created some lovely cards with the Painted Peony Bundle. We're so excited to have Rebecca Korotkova, Michelle Short, and Vera Yates on board with us this month! You can check out their designs below while also getting to know them better.
AMANDA KOROTKOVA - @littlecraftypill
Hi everyone! My name is Amanda and I'm originally from Spain, where I started my card making journey seven years ago. Crafting became a form of therapy for me pretty soon and it's been a lifesaver throughout some difficult years of my life.
I currently live in the Netherlands with my husband and my 5 year old son. I love clean and simple cards and I'm really passionate about colour and design. My new found love is watercolor! I've struggled with this medium for years (maybe because I'm a perfectionist), but I'm determined to learn how to use it properly.
Concord and 9th has been one of my favorite companies in this industry since the moment they were born! Their designs are always fresh and original, so you can imagine I am beyond excited to be guest designing here this month.
Thank you so much for having me!
MICHELLE SHORT - @thecardgrotto
Hello there, I’m Michelle, otherwise known as The Card Grotto. I am a 30 something crafter from London, UK. I have been crafting since I was a child but got into card making 15+ years ago. My style is usually clean and simple, but I do often get inky too! I am delighted to be guesting with Concord & 9th this month. I love their modern style which I feel works perfectly with my crafting style!
VERA YATES - @wirianta
Hi all. I am Vera Wirianta Yates or you can also call me Ling. I've always love crafting ever since I was a kid. My journey in paper crafting started in 1997 when I got into scrapbooking & branch out to card making shorty after. I used to teach scrapbook & cardmaking classes at my local scrapbook store, then in 2009 I started blogging and that has opened a whole new world for me. Since then, I've been lucky enough to be published in numerous crafts publications & serve as design team member for various stamping companies. I am also the founder of Caring Hearts Card Drive that collect & distribute handmade Christmas cards to nursing homes throughout US, Canada, Australia and UK from 2010 to 2019. I'd describe my style as clean, simple and cheerful. I love playing with colors. Flowers and cute critters are my favorite images to work with. I am so excited to be guest designing for Concord & 9th as I am a fan of their beautiful & playful products.
Let's inspire each other! We'd love to see what you do with the Painted Peony Bundle! Make sure you tag us in your posts and use the hashtags #c9april2021release, #paintedpeonybundle and of course, #concordand9th.
