Petals for the Pittmans

Hello my fellow crafters.  Today I'm focusing on brand new, collaborative digital stamp set spearheaded by Polka Dot Orchard.  This is to help out a fellow crafter and design team member, Larissa Pittman and her husband Gary.

You can head right to the Polka Dot Orchard blog HERE for complete details.

Now, I about fainted when I found out which artist designed the images I used on my card today.  Gracie from Graciellie Design!  I am a HUGE fan of her art.  These images and sentiments are absolutely gorgeous and so full of detail.  So let us see what I made!

I wanted to really make these peonies come to life so I sized it to fit a 5x7 card.  I did reduce the opacity of the lines before I printed it out onto X-Press It cardstock.

Here are a few progress photos.

Here is the list of Copic markers that I used:

Cup-N0, N1, N3, N5 and N7
Leaves-BG11, BG13, BG18 and BG78
Flower Centers-YR32, YR35, YR38
Flowers-YR000, R12, R02, R05 and R59

When I printed the flowers, I also printed the sentiment onto the cardstock.  I ran it through my Minc machine to add teal foil that matches the leaves.

The only other elements I added to the card were Wink of Stella, some dots made with a white gel pen and a few sequins.  I didn't want to distract from the gorgeous flowers!

I do hope you will check out this fantastic stamp set available in the Polka Dot Orchard Etsy store.'s only available for a limited time!
