Hi and welcome!
Yay! Today we debut the gorgeous Ornate Peacock Collection!
'Take a stroll through a paper collection straight from a magical garden filled with ornate peacocks and windows, colored in hues of sea blues, vibrant aquas, and summer greens. Decorated with florals, greenery, and of course… ornate peacocks. Combine the stamps, dies, and paper collection to bring these ornate peacocks to life, easier than you thought possible!'
I've created so many cards already with this new collection. It looks like everyone I know will be receiving peacock birthday cards this year lol.
Here's the first of my cards for Heartfelt Creations.
Instructions: Card size is 6 x 8”. Cut two pieces of white cardstock 6 1/2 x 8” and 6 x 8”. Score and fold the 6 1/2 x 8” piece at 1/2” on the short side. Cut Luxe Silver cardstock 5 7/8 x 7 7/8” and cut sheet 8B from the Ornate Peacock Collection 5 3/4 x 7 3/4”. Ink the edges of the designer paper with Forget-Me-Not Archival ink and adhere the two papers together using dries clear adhesive. Adhere to the 6 1/2 x 8” cardstock using removable tape. Use the middle Ornate Window die to cut an aperture in all three pieces. If it doesn’t cut all the way through, remove the white layer and cut the two layers individually. The first pass through the diecutting machine will leave an indentation so that you will know exactly where to place the die so that everything lines up perfectly. Then, burnish the fold on the 6 1/2 x 8” white cardstock well and adhere to the 6 x 8” white cardstock with dries clear adhesive to create the side fold card base. Adhere the top layer permanently with dries clear adhesive. Cut Luxe Silver cardstock 5 7/8 x 7 7/8” and sheet 4A from the Ornate Peacock Collection 5 3/4 x 6 3/4”, ink the edges with Forget-Me-Not ink, adhere the two together and adhere to the inside of the card. Stamp the ‘Have a Wonderful Birthday’ sentiment from Special Birthday Sentiments Cling Stamp set on white cardstock using Forget-Me-Not ink, diecut using a label die from the Slim Elegant Rectangle Die. Cut a silver label from the same set using a larger die and adhere to the inside bottom of the card.
Stamp the Ornate Window on white cardstock using VersaMark, cover with Ranger Silver Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder and heat set using the heat it tool. Diecut, using the outside Ornate Window Die along with the inside windowpane die. Diecut 8 more times from white cardstock. Diecut clear cardstock using the same die used to cut the aperture, adhere to the back of the stamped window, then adhere the other diecuts together and adhere behind the clear cardstock. Stamp the window again on Luxe Silver cardstock using VersaMark ink, cover with Ranger Silver Superfine Detail Embossing Powder and heat set using the Heat It tool. Diecut just the window topper and then diecut 4 more times from white cardstock. Adhere the diecuts together with the silver on top and adhere to the top of the window on the card front. Open the card and place sequins on the clear cardstock to create the shaker element. Stamp the window two more times using Archival Shadow Gray ink, diecut and adhere the two together back-to-back. Adhere another piece of clear cardstock and adhere over the aperture on the inside of the card using dries clear adhesive. This gives the inside a finished look.
Stamp the gorgeous Ornate Peacock on white cardstock using VersaMark ink, cover with Ranger Silver Superfine Detail Embossing Powder and heat set using the Heat It tool. Diecut using the coordinating die and color using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers – Fl. Green, Yellow, Persian Green and Dark Pink. Diecut once more from white cardstock and adhere behind the stamped image for stability. Lightly shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, seat it on the window ledge and adhere using dries clear adhesive and dimensional dots. Diecut two flourishes from white and silver cardstocks using the Filigree Accents Die, glitter the white one using Ultrafine Transparent Glitter, adhere the silver behind the white, slightly offset, and adhere to the top corners of the card front.
Stamp the Clematis flowers on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Vibrant Fuchsia ink. Color the fronts and the backs using the same ink, diecut using the coordinating dies and shape using the 3D Clematis Mold. Add additional shaping using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Adhere two flowers of the same size together to create each flower and create one large and two small flowers. Pierce the flower centers, add Bridal Bouquet stamens using hot glue. Stamp the Garden Lily leaves on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using English Ivy Archival ink, color the fronts and backs with the same color, diecut using the coordinating die, add additional ink to the edges and shape in the 3D Lily mold. Using a paint brush, add dries clear adhesive to the flowers and leaves and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter.
Adhere the flowers and leaves to the left side of the window using hot glue. To add some extra sparkle, sponge some dries clear adhesive randomly on the stamped images, the card front and the inside of the card and sprinkle with Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter.
