Stampin’ Up! Frosted Royal Peacock for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

I decided to play with the gorgeously stunning colors and images in the Noble Peacock Suite – including the Royal Peacock stamp set, bundled Detailed Peacock Dies and the Noble Peacock Specialty DSP and Foil.  Take a look-see:

And here’s the sketch that inspired us all today!

I started with a piece of the Old Olive Noble Peacock Foil and embossed it in the Beads & Baubles Embossing Folder – and that became the card front.

Using a piece of the Pretty Peacock paper in the Noble Peacock Specialty DSP, I took the edgelit die from the new Magnolia Memory Die set and cut the scalloped edge.  I adhered that cut panel to the embossed card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut a few peacock feathers from Old Olive and Pretty Peacock foils using the Detailed Peacock Dies – then I adhered them ever-so-artistically onto the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, which is actually two sentiment stamps from the Royal Peacock stamp set, I stamped each phrase in Old Olive on Whisper White.  I pulled out the two-die label combination from the Frosted Bouquet Die set and cut the sentiment.  I cut an Old Olive foil mat using the second die (which creates a perfectly-sized mat!) and adhered the sentiment to it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the flower image from Royal Peacock twice in Pretty Peacock ink on Whisper White and colored them with my Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.  Then I cut them with the matching die in the Detailed Peacock set.  I popped them onto the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the card front with more Dimensionals.

I added some Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the flower centers and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Royal Peacock sentiment in Old Olive on Whisper White.  Next to it I added a couple of flourishes in Pretty Peacock, coloring them with my Light Old Olive Blend.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Old Olive Noble Peacock foil mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple of Royal Peacock flourishes on the front…

…and a couple of the flower images on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These colors in the Noble Peacock Suite are just so rich and gorgeous together, aren’t they?  And I love the sentiments and images in the Royal Peacock stamp set.  I am also a huge fan of the Detailed Peacock Die set – especially those wonderful feathers (which are stunning and very Peacock-y in the Foil!!).  I hope you like!
