Colorful Royal Peacock card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and colorful card featuring products from the Noble Peacock Suite! What is so fun about the stamp set and coordinating dies, is that you can stamp and color a peacock one way or you can use the detailed die to create another! So, I thought I would use my sponge brayers to create my own colors to cut out with the detailed die! 

Since I wanted my peacock to be shimmery, I used a piece of Shimmery White cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¾” (this is more than enough to cut out the peacock and two of the big feathers). I then used my Sponge Brayer with Lovely Lipstick, Blueberry Bushel, and Pretty Peacock inks:

I used the detailed peacock die to cut out of the cardstock, positioning the die so that the top is right at the Lovely Lipstick colored part:

The base layer is this design from the Noble Peacock Specialty DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

The next layer is a Silver Foil Sheet, cut at 3 ½” x 4 ¾”, and then the top layer is Blueberry Bushel cardstock, cut at 3 ¼” x 4 ½”, and embossed with the Beads & Baubles Embossing Folder:

For the card front you will need the detailed peacock, use the larger circle die from the Stitched Labels Dies from the Silver Foil, and the peacock feather cut out of the same colored paper for the detailed peacock:

I adhered the layers of DSP and cardstock together:

The peacock is adhered to the silver circle to look like it is sitting on the circle with my fine tip glue pen:

The feathers are adhered behind the silver foil circle and then is adhered to the layered paper with dimensionals:

This completed piece is then adhered to a Blueberry Bushel cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. I decided I wanted to add some pearls, so I colored two of the large pearls with Dark Pretty Peacock and one large pearl with Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends:

The inside is on Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays and the accent feather stamp are both stamped in Blueberry Bushel ink:

Don’t you just love this detailed die?? This suite was #2 on my “must have” list, everything is just so bright and shiny!! There are so many different creations you can make with this suite, with or without the peacocks!

I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up!
