Incredible Peacock Card

I loved the Noble Peacock Suite of products straight away, but it was more the gorgeous foiled designer paper and the ribbon which drew me in, I wasn’t too fussed for the peacocks if I’m honest. I used the one code for the whole suite when I ordered, mainly because I’m lazy! I’m glad I did through because I love this peacock now I’ve had a play and have some more ideas brewing with what to do with it.

This quick card uses two pieces of foiled card measuring 12.4cm x 8.5cm to create the two layers to create the background.

The peacock was stamped first in Pretty Peacock and then the tail detail was added with Old Olive. To fill in the face and belly of the peaock I took n aqua painter and gently coaxed some of the stamped ink into the white areas, this did leave it a little blury but I still like the effect.

I finished the card with a greeting stamped onto the second smallest of the Stitched Nested Label Dies and a little touch of the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Ribbon which I adore.

Blackberry Bliss Inspiring Iris

I’m loving all the floral stamps sets in the new catalogue and Inspiring Iris is one of my favourites. I love Irises but have sadly never managed to grow any in my garden..yet, so for the time being I can now happily create as many as I like.

For this card I went for a simple colour scheme of Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive, mostly so I could use some of the gorgeous Noble Peacock Speciality DSP which is covered in foil accents and its stunning.

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the three different sections of the Iris and although it’s not lined up perefectly (not sure if its meant too or not) I love it as it adds to that floaty floral feel. To finish the card I added some Blackberry Bliss twine from the Nature’s Twine pack and a little bow.

A gorgeous card for any occassion, I can see myself using this stamp set alot in the coming weeks.
