Stampin' Up Perfect Peacock Card


I saw this card design someone posted on Pinterest and I really wanted to make one for my Mother. I think this has been a challenge for me since the posting didn't specify the colors they used but here is what I did:

Card Base: 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 in Island Indigo, second layer is Coastal Cabana card stock, then I used Elegant Eggplant CS for the third layer and Stamped the Peacock image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Whisper White CS.

To color the Peacock image I used the Stampin' Up Coastal Cabana, Old Olive, and Wisteria Wonder Blendabilities Collections and used the light and medium tones only.

I stamped the main image then again I stamped but only the Peacock tail feathers and colored them up, then I fussy cut each one of them and attach each feather on top of main image with dimensionals,  and added some Stampin Up dazzling diamonds glitter. I did the same with the flowers and added a basic rhinestone to embellish them.
I hope you get inspiration from this card like I did, and decide to make your own,  they turn out so Beautiful!
Thank you for visiting and Happy Stamping!

Stampin'Up Perfect Peacock Note card Gift Set



What a great way to start the New Year 2015 by making this fabulous note card gift set project, made with the Stampin'Up Perfect Peacock Stamp set. This is very easy to make and a great gift for all occasions!
The Box Enclosure was designed by Wendy Cranford a very talented Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator, and you can learn how to make this box by watching her YouTube video tutorial HERE

The note card base measures 5" X 3-1/2.  Cut paper at 10 X 3-1/2 and fold in half. You can use your favorite color card stock, here I used Blackberry Bliss card stock (item #133675) for two of the note cards.
The top layer is Very Vanilla card stock cut at 3-3/8 X 4- 3/4. Also cut another piece of Very Vanilla CS for the inside of card that measures 4-1/2 X 3-1/4. You can leave the top layer square or use one of the Stampin Up border punches to cut bottom of this top layer. I stamped the Perfect Peacock in Blackberry Bliss and added some of the Gold bakers twine to make it a little different.
I used the Birthday Wishes sentiment from the Stampin'Up "Four You" stamp set and embossed this in Gold.
For the second note card I added some dazzling diamonds glitter to feathers of the Peacock and 3 small flowers using the flower in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (item # 133787). The tiny flower was done with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (Retired) if you don't have this punch you can use one of the flower shapes from the Boho Blossoms Punch (item #119858), or add another flower of the same size. I used the "celebrate" sentiment from the Stampin'Up "Good Greetings" stamp set.

For the third and forth note cards I used the Naturals Ivory card stock (item #101849) for the base.
I stamped the Peacock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and I used the Stampin Up Ovals Collection framelits dies as follows:
Gold Oval is #6
Black Oval is #5
For Center Oval you can use the Oval #4.
I used the "THANK YOU" sentiment from the Stampin'Up Lots of Thanks stamp set and I used the "CONGRATULATIONS" sentiment from the Stampin'Up Something to Say stamp set.

The Envelopes were made with the Stampin'Up Envelope Punch Board. I did a little change on the dimensions to customize and so the note cards and envelopes fit well inside the box.
To make the Envelopes Cut Paper at 7-1/4 X 7-1/4 and score at 3".

I hope you get inspiration and decide to make your own note card gift sets :)
