Beautiful Peacock is a FREE Sale-A_Bration Photopolymer stamp set. How do you get it? Spend A$90 from the Annual and or Occasions Catalogues and you can even add Clearance items so long as your total is A$90. There are a number of different beautiful Stampin’ Up! products to choose from. Beautiful Peacock is just one of them.
Here’s the card I share with you which was completed before the video:
It’s an easy stamp set to use as it’s photopolymer and I have used quite a number of the images and a sentiment from the set here.
Here’s a closer view of the peacock. Now I have stamped the flourishes differently to most as I wanted to use the larger flourish twice. Normally (and I show you in the video), you use the small flourish for the top part of the tail.
The Peacock body is stamped in Bermuda Bay and then the fan part is Lemon Lime Twist. As I was combining colours, I decided to stamp the flourishes in Rich Razzleberry. The flowers and pots are also images from the stamp set which I wanted to show so stamped them in the colours I was using.
Beautiful Peacock 1 Basics
- Bermuda Bay card measures 21 cm x 14.8 cm or 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
- Whisper White layer measures 14.3 cm x 10 cm or 51/4″ x 4″
- Card insert measures 9.5 cm x 13.5 cm 3 3/4″ x 5 1/4″. All my card inserts have the same measurement and I cut them in bulk.
I’ve then used the smaller flourish and Bermuda bay ink to stamp inside the card and then on the outside of the envelope. Now you can sit back with a cuppa and see how I stamped the Beautiful Peacock and get a few tips as well.
Beautiful Peacock 2 Basics
- Powder pink card measures 14.8 cm x 21 cm folded and scored at 10.5 cm or 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored and folded at 4 1/4″
- Berry Burst card measures 12.8 cm x 8.5 cm or 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″
- Whisper White panel is 12.3 cm x 8 cm or 4 1/4″ x 3″
- Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon is long enough to tie a bow around the panel.
A closer look at the Beautiful Peacock with the Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Notice the difference between the depth of colour in the sentiment to that of the peacock body? I love how second and third generation stamping can give you tones of the same colour.
Then I have come in with the flourishes to stamp the insert of the card and the outside of the envelope.
- Why do I stamp the insert I put into cards? I think it shows you have taken that little bit more time and care with your hand made card and the recipient will appreciate that time and effort. Believe me they do.
- Why do I stamp on the outside of my envelopes? Because in this day of rush, hustle and bustle when everyone is glued to their technological devices, I think it’s nice to send pretty mail which will be noticed. Besides you’d like to cheer up the postie too, wouldn’t you.
