I can't decide if I like today's card so much because of the beautiful Color Layering Iris stamp by Hero Arts or because the peach colors are nearly the exact same color of my new freshly painted guest bedroom! It's called "Apricot Sorbet." Apparently I am going through a "peach phase" right now because I can't get enough of this color. This card, my guest bedroom, a new summer dress I just purchased. . . all peach! But, seriously, these color layering stamps (of ALL the brands) are amazing! The depth and detail they add to the image is simply stunning. Add a coat of Clear Wink of Stella on top and the sparkle factor is WOW! Check out these samples using the Peruvian Lily by Altenew, and tomorrow I'll be sharing another layering flower stamp - the hyacinth from Altenew, so be sure to come back for more!

The base of this A2 sized card is made from Grapefruit Grove cardsock. Using the Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangle dies from Gina Marie Designs, I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. On this white paper, I stamped the sentiment in the upper right corner in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I also stamped the two layered leaves in Mint Macaron and Garden Green. On a separate sheet of white cardstock, I stamped the irises in three colors of ink - Peekaboo Peach, Grapefruit Grove and Pumpkin Pie. I die cut the irises and adhered them to the stems using 3M foam adhesive for added depth. I tied a piece of twine around the base of the card and added a few randomly placed rhinestones. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the irises for added sparkle.
Here is the Color Layering Iris stamp set from Hero Arts that I used to create this card:
