Prized Peony Bundle for As You See It Challenges

prized peony bundle for as you see it challenges 1

 Welcome to Friday and another As You See It Challenge! It's a Fill in the Blank challenge this week and one of my favourites. It's especially timely because of the polar vortex that has been gripping most of North America over the past couple of weeks! Snow in Texas!!??? Whoa! The challenge asks which colour makes you feel the most cozy. Here's the banner:

For me it's textured gray that does the trick and if you throw in a splash of warm red or yellow, it makes it perfectly Hygge!! So I did a background of Smoky Slate textured with the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder and added a splash of warm Mango Melody with the Prized Peony Bundle!

  • The Prized Peony Bundle consists of the Prized Peony cling stamp set and the Peony Dies. I stamped the peony flower in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it in with Mango Melody Stampin' Blends Combo and Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends Combo, adding some highlights with the Blends Colour Lifter.
  • The Peony dies not only die cut the image but also an identical shape from Basic Gray cardstock that I adhered behind the image, offsetting it a bit to act as a shadow to provide contrast. These are added to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment is from the same Prized Peony stamp set and is die cut with one of the Tasteful Label Dies.
  • The Peony Dies has a scallop border die that I used on the edge here, die cut from Mango Melody cardstock.
  • Embellishments include Gold Glitter Enamel Dots and Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.
What colours make you feel cozy? I hope you'll play along with us.

Peony Dies


  1. I agree that texture also adds to the cosiness of a project. Lovely colour combination, Heather - stylish and warm.

  2. Yellow is a favourite colour of mine for florals and your peony pairs perfectly with the soft grey Heather. Texture definitely adds to the cosiness feel - I think you might like another project of mine, a grey ombre blanket I knitted last week - it is all kinds of cosy!!
