Beautiful Peacock

I shared this design in yesterday’s blog hop. Thanks for hopping back for the design details. I started with the Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes. Bonus is that they are already cut, scored and have tone on tone “v” design printing. 2 24 2018bloghop3-001

The first layer is a diagonal striped rich razzleberry print that is part of the Sweet Soiree Memories and More card pack. It was originally sized at 4×6 inches. A 1×4 inch piece was cut off so it would fit on the card front.

Next, our delicate white doilie was cut in half and adhered as shown.

Close up of the peacock stamped on a piece of 3 x 3 7/8 inch whisper white cardstock. One of the circle stamps was used to create a daffodil delight inked border along one side and then one opposite corner. The “beautiful friend” stamp was cut using the lemon builder punch layered with a 1 inch circle punched rich razzleberry cardstock piece.

Sponge daubers were used to add daffodil light ink to the wing and head feathers. Crumb cake ink daubed underneath the peacock grounds the bird.

The lemon builder punch was used to create the sentiment.

Ink and Share Blog Hop

Welcome to our Sale-A-Bration blog hop featuring projects made with Stampin’ Up! products designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Phoebe’s stop. My hop entry is below.

I used 3 different Sale-A-Bration products on my greeting card. The Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes allowed me to get to the fun faster since the card base was already cut and scored and had tone on tone printing. The rich razzleberry striped layer is an option in the Sweet Soiree Memories and More Card pack. Last, I used the Beautiful Peacock stamp set for the focal point.

Lorie Line in concert

I have been a fan of Lorie Line since seeing her in the early days playing at the Cities department store. I have many of her CD’s but not sure where Threads of Love went. hmmm…it has been missing for several years. I have watched her concert schedule over the years but it was never a good time to attend.

She was going to be somewhat close by so I watched the weather and that open front row seat. When the weather looked clear, I thought when was I going to have the chance to be front row again? So, I took the opportunity to attend. Lorie’s first costume was elegant eggplant velvet so I knew I was in for a great show. I love the color purple!

I added the concert CD to my stash at intermission. I was pleasantly surprised that it was placed in a dark purple organza bag. Such fortunes to be surrounded by purples!

Thanks for a wonderful evening #LorieLine and company!

Oh yes, I did sent her a thank you card. It was this one because I felt the reindeer conveyed all the effort put into preparing and performing this concert. I’ll color coordinate a (purple if that is the concert theme) thank you card for the next concert I attend.
