Noble Peacock card using Stampin’ Up! supplies

Sometimes a stamp set or bundle grows on you over time, and sometimes you see something and love it straight away, and it was love at first sight for me with the gorgeous Noble Peacock suite. The only question is, why has it take so long for me to get it out and use it!

For this card I CASE’d the catalogue and used gold embossing for the detailed bits of the peacock’s feathers. I used Shaded Spruce for the main stamp. I decided to emboss the background layer and the frame around the peacock, but used the debosssed side for the background which looks great.

I like that the peacock just peeps over the frame – I used dimensionals to pop him up. I did try using just a rectangle frame but it didn’t look right because the frame was too narrow so I did what Stampin’ Up! did and used the Stitched Nested Labels dies.

I didn’t use any of the beautiful shiny cardstock either because I wanted the peacock to be the main focus. Hope you like him!

Stampin’ Up! Share What You Love Suite

Stampin' Up! Share What You Love card

Today’s card is a rare one for me for several reasons. First it’s a square card and I don’t make many of them. Second I CASE’d it from the new annual catalogue, and I don’t do that often, although I should. And third, I’ve used virtually the whole suite to make it – stamps, DSP, and embossing folder and I don’t do that often either! Wow, that’s quite a list.

So, do you like it? That Lovely Floral dynamic embossing folder is beautiful isn’t it, it really adds dimension to the card. I spritzed the Mint Macaron card with some water as Stampin’ Up! recommends and it embossed like a dream.

I fussy cut a few flowers from the DSP. It is so thick! It’s more expensive than usual but don’t forget that there is twice as much of it (24 sheets), and it is speciality paper because some of the sheets have pearlised elements. I hesitate to call it paper because it is so thick.

I finished the card with some Linen Thread and some sequins. Which is something else I don’t do often. I must be turning over a new leaf or something!

Any one of these elements – stamp set, embossing folder, DSP is beautiful, but put them together and they really pop. Oh, and I have more plans for that embossing folder too.

Here’s what I used to make the card:
