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.

Stamp the inside of the card with a sentiment from the Lovely Friends stamp set. Decorate the envelope back with daffodil delight inked peacock feathers.

I Spy Amazing You Hop Design Details

Thanks for stopping back today after hopping along our Inspire, Create and Share Blog Hop. If you missed the blog hop, click here to zoom to the hop.

I am sharing design details and supplies used to create my blog hop greeting card entry below. This card would also be fabulous on a scrapbook layout.

The crumb cake balloons needed a little jazzing up so I looked through my stamp stash and found a star stamp in the Better Together stamp set that was the right size. Strips of bermuda bay cardstock from my snippets bin were attached using the liquid glue. The snippets were custom cut off from the balloon using my Stampin’ Up! paper snips.

The next picture shows the Sale-A-Bration Shimmer Ribbon in bermuda bay prior to fraying in the bottom right. Gently pull the silver thread until the volume of fluffiness is reached for the tassel.

Next, use glue dots to attach the balloon tassels to the back of the crumb cake balloons. Use a mini-dimensional to adhere the balloon to the island indigo larger balloon. Both balloon sizes were punched using the Balloon Bouquet punch.

ICS Blog Hop with Amazing You

Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration 2018 products. I hope you are enjoying our stops. We have great projects to share with you!

My design includes the game of I Spy. Can you find where I used the Amazing You stamp set? Look towards the bottom which needed a little more detail to offset the balloon bunch. The rays in the bottom corner of the Lots of Labels framelit shape are part of the ray half circle stamp in the Amazing You Sale-A-Bration stamp set. Sometimes only a portion of a stamp is needed to add the final detail.

1 22 2018 icsbloghop5-001

We were challenged to use the following color combination in our design. I used crumb cake, bermuda bay and island indigo cardstock along with bermuda bay ink. The Bubbles and Fizz designer series paper featured the star pattern in bermuda bay hues so that was my starting point. Check back tomorrow for full design and supply details.

More Than Chocolate CASEing the Blog Hop Design 11

The word chocolate can be a noun or adjective. This chocolate is so luscious. The cake has chocolatey frosting. I love dark chocolate! Just a few ways the word can be used to convey meaning.

My More Than Chocolate hand stamped greeting card will make you want to seek out your nearest chocolatier shop. A local shop, Chocolate Caper, just opened a second location in my town. Their chocolate is luscious. Another favorite is Gail Ambrosius on Atwood Ave. I love Gail’s dark chocolate with caramel inside! Chocolaterian has yummy chocolatey frosting on their Badger Bites.

My card today was inspired Twila Davis’ Sale-A-Bration blog hop entry. See her star design here with the spiral inside. If you missed our hop with 15 stops, hop along here.

I had window sheets in stock and thought this material would make a good spiral base. So I used the largest circle framelit from the Layering Circles collection to cut a circle of window sheet. I used a paper snips to custom cut the spiral.

The stamped chocolate pieces helped with reducing the scrap pile so that is a bonus! Each mini chocolate is attached to the window sheet spiral with a glue dot. I used the 1 inch circle punch to punch whisper white. This circle was used to cover up the adhesive keeping the spiral attached to the inside of the card directly below the score line. I cleverly covered the glue dot attaching the other end of spiral to the top of the card with another stamped mini chocolate.

Supplies used…You can see my work surface which is a large desk blotter. I turn the calendar pages over after the month is done and use it to pre-clean my stamps before I clean them with my stampin scrub and stampin mist. If you have been following my CASEing series, you will see the doggie test run towards the bottom and then faint images from pre-cleaning stamps in the corners.

Our valentine designer series paper this year is Painted with Love Specialty. It features gold throughout the collection with melon mambo, rich razzleberry and peek-a-book peach combinations. A nice change from real red images.
