Stampin’ Up! A Beautiful Friendship Eclipse Thank You!

Good morning – it’s FRIDAY!!  Whoo-hoo!!  Hope the weekend is looking good for y’all!

I had another special request for a card – this one a thank you with…hopefully!…some peonies.  So – I sent some ideas and we settled on the beautiful flower in the Beautiful Friendship stamp set.  I combined that with the Thank You Die and a sentiment from the A Big Thank You stamp set.  Take a look-see:

As I was figuring what to do for this one, I got the e-mail notice for the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge – and it clicked for me!  Do an Eclipse card! 😉

And it seemed to work perfectly with this week’s Watercooler Challenge!

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and started building a Beautiful Friendship flower garden.  First up – the peonies.  I used my Stamparatus, stamping the first one in full strength Petal Pink.  For the second one, I inked the stamp and stamped it off once.  Then I stamped the card front.  I used a Sponge Dauber to add more Petal Pink to the bottom and edges of the image and stamped it again (thank you, Stamparatus!).

I made a couple of sticky note masks (stamped the sticky note with the image and fussy cut it) and laid them over the top of the two peonies.  Then I stamped the hydrangeas in Balmy Blue.  I also added stamped-off-once Highland Heather lilacs here and there.  I made a couple of hydrangea sticky note masks and used all the masks to add stamped-off-once Pear Pizzazz leaves around the image.

The final flower is the rose – stamped in Blushing Bride.  I added some stamped-off-once So Saffron flower centers to the peonies and that was it!

With my garden finished, I cut the Thank You Die from the middle of the panel.  I VERY CAREFULLY saved all the “chads” from the die.  Don’t miss this step! 🙂

I also cut three more of the Thank You dies from Basic Black cardstock and stacked them up with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat with Liquid Glue.  I set the die cut back into the “hole” and then used Liquid Glue (teensy dabs!) to put all the “chads” back into their spot – adhering them to the Black panel.

I adhered the “real” die cut on top of the stacked black die cuts and then adhered the whole thing back into place on the card front.

I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Linen Thread double-length simple bow, added a few pink Noble Peacock Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from A Big Thank You in Balmy Blue – and created another garden scene on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into a Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Beautiful Friendship flowers on the front…

…and on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  A flower garden for a friend!  I love the flower images in the Beautiful Friendship stamp set, don’t you?  And the Thank You Die is a wonderful starting point for the eclipse technique!  I hope you like!

P.S.  If you decide to CASE this card (yeah!) – don’t forget to hang on to the sticky note masks you make!  Keep them right in the stamp case and they’ll be all ready for your next carding adventure! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Art is Everything Amazing Birthday!

Here ’tis, y’all!  Say it with me.  And do it IN CAPS!!

HAPPY HAPPY HAWWWWWMMMMP DAY!!!

There – that felt good, huh?

Guess what today is?  It’s a LAST day.

  • Last Day to Earn Bonus Days Coupons – the EARNING starts tomorrow.  So…if you don’t have all the $5 coupons you want…you know what to do!
  • Last Day to SAVE big on Thirty One Goodies!
  • Last at-home-work day for Mary
  • Last day before I can order 2019 Holiday Catalogs to send to you!!
  • Oh – last day of July, too!

That’s a lot of Last Day stuff, isn’t it? 🙂

Now – this will NOT be the last day you see a card from me using the super Everything Amazing stamp set!  It’s so darned handy and versatile and…COOL!  Look what happens when you add it to Follow Your Art DSP!

This is my CASE of the Designer from this week’s Global Design Project challenge!

I started with some fun paper from the Follow Your Art DSP and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

I wrapped a length of Crushed Curry 3/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the big beautiful sentiment from Everything Amazing in Calypso Coral on a piece of Whisper White.  I cut it out with the largest Stitched Nested Label die.  Then I used my trimmer to cut off one point.

I added two more pieces of the sentiment in Pacific Point and some Crushed Curry curly-do’s here and there around the image.

I laid the sentiment onto the card front where I planned to set it – and stamped the balloon image from Everything Amazing in Tuxedo Black – letting the strings overlap the sentiment panel.

I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the balloons again – this time in Calypso Coral – on another piece of Whisper White and colored them with my Light Calypso Coral Blend, Dark So Saffron Blend and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I fussy cut the balloons and popped them over the stamped image on the card front.

I tied a small bow from the Crushed Curry 3/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and used a second piece to tie it onto the ribbon already on the card front.

I added some Coastal Cabana Glitter Enamel Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the balloons and curly-do’s on a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Pacific Point card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Everything Amazing balloons and confetti (I’m pretty sure that’s the technical term for the curly-do’s!) on the front…

…and some more of the Follow Your Art DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I.  LOVE.  THIS.  SET!!  Everything Amazing really IS amazing – for so many occasions!  And, of course, the cheerful and color-filled Follow Your Art DSP is so much fun!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Fall Sweetly Swirled Thank You

Good morning!  Hope your weekend is going well!

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see how to make today’s card, you can check out the replay right here on YouTube!

I played with a new-to-me set called Sweetly Swirled to make a Fall-ish thank you card.  Not sure why “Fall” – maybe the three or four days with mornings cool enough to open the doors and windows for a few hours?  Not quite Fall weather, but…pretty darned nice!  Wishful thinking I guess!  I paired it up with some wood-y paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and adhered it to some Pumpkin Pie card stock for the card front.

I ran a strip of SNAIL across the middle of the panel and used it to adhere a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon.  Then I wrapped some Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack around twice, adhering it in the back with Glue Dots.

On a piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped the large Sweetly Swirled “wreath” in Early Espresso.  Then I cut it with an oval Stitched Shapes Die.

I stamped some leaves and berries from Sweetly Swirled in Mossy Meadow and Cajun Craze around the edge of the wreath, and added the sentiment in Cajun Craze.

On a seperate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped some flowers, berries, leaves and…orange slices??…using Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie inks and daubing a couple of them with Cajun Craze using a Sponge Dauber.

Then I pulled up my big girl Paper Snips and got to fussy cutting! 😉

Once I had everything cut out to my exacting standards (LOL), I used Liquid Glue and Dimensionals to adhere them to the edge of the wreath.

I tied a Double-Loop bow from the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread and adhered it with a Glue Dot and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Sweetly Swirled in Cajun Craze in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I added another wreath – this time in stamped-off-once Early Espresso.  Then I decorated it with more flowers, leaves, berries, and fruit!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Sweetly Swirled wreath on the front…

…and the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I love the sweet wreaths that can be built using this Sweetly Swirled stamp set!  SO much easier than ACTUALLY making a grapevine wreath, yes?? 🙂  And – it can be totally seasonal – just change up the colors and you’re in Spring, Summer or even Winter!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Sweetly Swirled Video Tutorial Sneak Peek!

Happy Saturday, y’all!  What plans do you have for the weekend?  I think we need to hit the Farmer’s Market this morning (and I think Finn-y might get to go, too!) to get more tomatoes.  I am really regretting not having any plants this year!  Wayne and I came home from Italy with a new-found love of caprese salad!  And…those half-ripe maters from the grocery store….no.  Just…no!

Tonight though, I think we should get together on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page and do a video!  We’ll meet up at 7pm Eastern and make a Sweetly Swirled little thank you card.  Take a sneaky-peek:

Finn Fan Fix


I’ve been thinking of fun things to do with Finn now that I’m going to have time on my hand – and NOT have to go running here and there for months at a time.

One of those things is…pet therapy!  I think Finn-y would be seriously awesome as a pet therapy dog, don’t you?  And…maybe one of those airport dogs – the ones that try to keep folks from having meltdowns.  Not the ones that find drugs or anything. 😉

Since the first step to any of these is…training – I thought we ought to start at home.

And – since we’re inundated with trees – and branches that fall to the ground – I thought to myself “Self – let’s teach the dog to pick up sticks and carry them to a pile and drop them”.

He LIKES to carry sticks.

Unfortunately – the second phase of the process is much MUCH harder.

He sort of likes to…chew them to pieces wherever he picks them up.

Well.  I suppose wood chips might be useful, too?

Baby steps! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Leave a Little Sparkle 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 color 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 might have gotten a little jiggy with the color challenge (a LITTLE, I said!) – I was making a card for my Mom to send to a young lady who is starting first grade this Fall.  I thought the unicorn and sentiments from the Leave a Little Sparkle set was perfect.  And a unicorn in a bower of flowers (yes, I said “bower”) seemed like just the thing – so I pulled out my Pressed Petals Specialty DSP.  Take a look-see:

Here’s the challenge.

And I borrowed the layout from this week’s FUSION challenge!

I started with the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and matted it on Mossy Meadow for the card front.

I cut a strip of Very Vanilla and stamped the first sentiment from Leave a Little Sparkle in Mossy Meadow in the middle on the right side.  Then I matted it on Mossy Meadow and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used SNAIL to adhere some Rococo Rose 1/2″ Gathered Ribbon across the top and bottom of the strip.

For the art, I stamped the unicorn from Leave A Little Sparkle in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Very Vanilla and cut it with a large Stitched Shapes die.  I colored his (her?) mane with my Light and Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends and the Rococo Rose Stampin’ Write Marker (that gives three shades of the same color!).

I used an old Blender Pen to color the body and horn of the unicorn with Frosted White Shimmer Paint.  Then I brushed Clear Wink of Stella over the mane.  I popped the oval onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut several flowers in Very Vanilla and Rococo Rose using the die from the Lovely Flowers die set.  Each Rococo Rose flower got a Rhinestone Basic Jewel and the Very Vanilla’s got a Petal Pink Noble Peacock Rhinestone.  I also cut leaves from Mossy Meadow and Gold Foil.

Then I used Liquid Glue and Mini Dimensionals to adhere them around the unicorn horn and on the side of the oval.

I tied a double-loop bow from Mossy Meadow Linen Thread (part of the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack) and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Over the top I added a double-length simple bow from Linen Thread.  Finally, I added some gold stars from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley (2019 Holiday Catalog – coming on 4 Sept) – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added the second Leave A Little Sparkle sentiment in Mossy Meadow to a Very Vanilla panel.  In the corners, I stamped the sparkle-flourish image in stamped-off-once Rococo Rose.  I added another gold star, just cuz…

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Very Vanilla card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a full-strength Rococo Rose flourish on the front…

…and more Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I am hoping that this girly-flowerdy-unicorny card from Leave a Little Sparkle will appeal to the young recipient!  Who could really resist a unicorn peering from within a bower of pretty rose and cream flowers?  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Jaimie’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Stampin’ Up! Check You Out Congratulations!

Happy Friday!  I hope your week has gone well – we’ve been getting back into the swing of things.  And trying to figure out what time zone we’re in! LOL!

Speaking of time-zones – if you live in Alabama – this is your Tax-Free Weekend!  Read down below to see what SU! products qualify for this big savings – then get shopping (and earn you some Bonus Days coupons while you’re at it!).

I’ve got a cute little number for you today, using a stamp set that you may have missed in your early looks thru the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  This one is called Check You Out – and…it’s totes adorbs!  Check it out!

How cute is that little owl?!?

I took inspiration for the layout from this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

And the colors are from The Paper Players color challenge.

I started with a Basic Gray card base and stamped it all over with books from the Check You Out set.  I put all three book images onto an acrylic block, inked them with Blueberry Bushel and stamped them multiple times across the card front.

I used a piece of Granny Apple Green and a same-size piece of scripty paper in Blueberry Bushel from the 2018-2020 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP to create the card front, adhering them at jaunty angles with Liquid Glue.

I cut a Rectangle Stitched Die from Whisper White and stamped a Check You Out sentiment at the bottom in Blueberry Bushel.

I cut a length of Granny Apple Green 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon, doubled it over and used SNAIL to adhere it to the Whisper White panel.  Then I added a Mini Library Clip at the top and popped it all onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the check-out card in Balmy Blue on a piece of Whisper White.  I added the little owl in Basic Gray and a sentiment in Blueberry Bushel.  Then I fussy cut the image (cutting off the extra “owl’ – what I really wanted was his feet! 😉 ).

I stamped the owl again in Basic Gray, added some Granny Apple Green spectacles and fussy cut him.

I popped the check-out card onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals – then used Mini Dimensionals and Liquid Glue to add the fussy cut owl.  Finally, I tied a little bow from Blueberry Bushel 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon and adhered it to the Library Clip with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added another Check You Out sentiment in Blueberry Bushel on a Whisper White panel.  I added a Balmy Blue mortar board (don’t need a graduation card?  Leave that off!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green and into the Basic Gray card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Basic Gray owl, Granny Apple Green spectacles and a Balmy Blue mortar board on the front…

…and more of the Blueberry Bushel 2018-2020 In Color DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously?  How sweet is that little hoo-ter!?  I just love the glasses, don’t you?  Although it’s kind of a “fly-over set”, Check You Out is a versatile set, with sentiments for thank you, congratulations, graduation and “just checking up” cards.  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


Finn continues to improve – we’re tapering the steroid cough medicine and are half-way thru the antibiotic.

He felt good enough last night to bring Mr. Reindeer to me… 🙂

He did mention that he thinks he’ll probably need to go back to see his friends at the vet.  You know – just to be safe.

And get…pets and belly rubs!

Stampin’ Up! Modern Heart is a Well Written Thank You

Well.  Tuesday arrives.  And when I look out the window I don’t see the Greek isles – or miles and miles of ocean.

And – when I go to get a cup of coffee, no one will admonish me to “washy-washy”!! 🙂

It’s truly back to the real world, my peeps! 🙂

My Katy is fine – looks like she got along okay in our absence.  I wanted to thank Sonya for taking care of her, so…a card seemed to be in order!  And – unlike the horse-care-thank-you…this one needed a cat.  So…out came the Cat Punch.  And I paired it up with the new Modern Heart stamp set.  Take a look-see:

The color scheme for this one came from this week’s Sunday Stamps color challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White.  In the middle, I stamped the bold “swath” image from the new Modern Heart stamp set.  I stamped it twice in Bermuda Bay ink.  With the tiny heart image, I stamped here and there in Pretty Peacock.  Then I matted the panel on Highland Heather.

On a second piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large heart image in Tuxedo Black.  Then I colored the various shapes on the inside with my Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends in Bermuda Bay, Shaded Spruce, Highland Heather, Purple Posy, and Pretty Peacock.  Then I fussy cut the heart.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere two lengths of Whisper White 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to the card front.

I added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of my fussy cut Modern Heart and used them to wind several loops of Silver Metallic Thread.  Then I popped the heart onto the card front.

I punched the cat out of Basic Black card stock using the Cat Punch and adhered her over the heart with Liquid Glue.

Using the Well Written Dies, I cut “thanks” and “You” from Whisper White.  I snipped the “s” off of “thanks” and then adhered the words to the card with Liquid Glue.

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

On the inside, I stamped the large Modern Heart in stamped-off-TWICE Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.  Over the top, I added a sentiment in Highland Heather.  I scattered some tiny hearts across the panel in Bermuda Bay.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Highland Heather mat and into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more hearts on the front…

…and I used my Stamparatus to add the Modern Heart images on the back as well!

Et Voila!  I wasn’t sure about this Modern Heart set – but was intrigued by the samples in the catalog, so I added it to my stash!  And boy, am I glad that I did!  It’s obviously going to be a great set to use for all sorts of cards!  I love it in the peacock colors of the challenge.  I hope you like!

The Man is home!  He was happy to see us – for about 15 seconds, then he zoomed around the Puppy Tubs lobby sniffing every single sniff.  And debating if he could get away with grabbing a bone out of one of the baskets!  Even the pictures are blurry! 😉

He was damp – so he’d obviously had a play in the pool in the morning – and ready to get in the car (after we got his suitcase and food bucket!).

That’s not his suitcase – that’s my new Soda Stream!

On the way to the house, right at the mailbox, we saw a doe and two (tiny!) fawns!  I was WAY WAY too slow to capture them on camera – but…the Man totally saw them!

Once we made it to the house, he unpacked his suitcase, putting Mr. Reindeer and Mr. Elephant away.  Then…it was time for….

…a nap in front of the air conditioning vent.  This travel stuff is exhausting – the jet lag is just horrendous! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Dino Days for A Good Man for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Celebrate Summer!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I decided to go to the beach.  With dinosaurs.

No – no dinosaurs.  Just the DinoRAUR Suite.  And then I added a little Come Sail Away DSP and a couple of goodies from the A Good Man set.  Take a look-see:

I started with a piece of Come Sail Away DSP and matted it on Crumb Cake for the card front.  Then I used SNAIL and some Glue Dots to adhere a length of new 3/8″ Denim Ribbon.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the image from A Good Man in Crumb Cake to start my beach-y scene.

I stamped the image again – on a sticky note this time – and roughly fussy cut it to make a mask.  Then I stamped it AGAIN – on some Balmy Blue striped Come Sail Away DSP.  I fussy cut just the shirt from that one.

I laid the sticky note mask over the stamped image and then stamped the palm trunks from Dino Days in Crumb Cake twice – when I lifted up the mask, the trees were “behind” the lounging man! 🙂

I colored my lounger-guy with my Light Balmy Blue (hat), Light Night of Navy (shorts); Ivory (skin) and Crumb Cake (“sand” and lounge chair) Stampin’ Blends.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the fussy cut “shirt”.

I added some Mossy Meadow leaves from Dino Days.  I matted the panel on Crumb Cake and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Whisper White I stamped 5 more leaves and cut them with the Dino Dies.  I lightly curled each leaf and used Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them to the top of the trees.

I stamped the A Good Man sentiment in Mossy Meadow on Whisper White and cut it with the Classic Label Punch.  Then I edged it with my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it onto the card front with Dimensionals.  A new Designer Element in the middle of the palm tree leaves finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added some Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow Dino Days palm trees to a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crumb Cake mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Dino Days palms on the front…

…and a little more Come Sail Away DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Now – seriously.  Does that NOT look like a totally wonderful way to pass a summer day!?!  And – aren’t you glad there are no Dino Days pterodactyls flying by??!  I bet our lounging dude from A Good Man sure is!  I hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Julie’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Akiko’s been up to!

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!

Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop thru all our projects today  If you click on the Next Blog button, you’ll go right to Kristi’s page. And you can just click on the names below to go direct to all the blogs!

Our team is a mix of folks who joined to get the discount (Hobby Demos) and those who are pursuing a business! Whatever YOUR goal is – I’d love to have you on board!

Head over to my Join My Team page and read-up – then let’s get you started (but- you’ve only got until 31 Aug to join if you want this Extra Extra great deal!).  If you have any questions while you’re there – or before you go! – drop me a note at stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net!
