Stampin' Up! Beautiful Peacock with copper embossing

Good morning everyone. Today's share is another take on the Stampin' Up! 2018 Saleabration stamp set Beautiful Peacock. I wanted to get a bit more elaborate with those beautiful plumes. Don't forget you can earn this stamp set free during Saleabration (or other choices instead) when you spend $90 during Saleabration. Learn more about Saleabration here.

I've combined Emerald Envy, Powder Pink and Copper Embossing plumes with the main Tranquil Tide stamping of the peacock. I also added in some copper embellishments, which I made by colouring adhesive pearls with the Bronze Stampin Blends alcohol marker.

Here's the colour combination I have used today (in addition to the copper embossing). The Tranquil Tide felt bow embellishment was a perfect finish for this card.

Stampin' Up! Hedgehugs. Quick and simple card ideas.

How super cute is this Hedgehugs stamp set? It's new in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue, and is available in wood or clear mount in my online store from January 3rd.

I thought this set was perfect for some quick and easy cards, so the cute images and greetings in the set can be the focus. I chose my colour scheme based on the beautiful Dahlia that is blooming in my garden right now.

Hedgehogs 5

I started with just a super basic card.

Here are the step by step instructions for this one:

  1. I stamped the hedgehogs close together, then die-cut with one of the Layering Oval Framelits.
  2. Next I stamped Flirty Flamingo flowers onto the Flirty Flamingo background.
  3. Then I stamped the greeting on a Very Vanilla scrap and cut out with the Classic Label Punch.
  4. I cut a piece of Berry Burst cardstock 1.5" wide. and the width of the card. I then cut a banner shape at each end with the Triple Layer Banner Punch.
  5. The banner piece is attached with Snail, and the oval piece and greeting piece with Dimensionals.

I also decided to make two mini gift cards using the same colour combination. These are great to make, and very economical as you can get 4 from a piece of A4 cardstock. Just cut a piece of A4 cardstock in half horizontally, and then each of those pieces in half vertically. The finished size of the unfolded card is 21cm x 7.4-7.5cm (it's actually 7.425, but if you do 3 x 7,4 winde ones and 1 7.5cm wide one it makes life way easier!).

The Berry Burst pieces are 7cm wide x 9.8cm long. The Very Vanilla piece on the hedgehog card is 5.2cm wide x 7.4cm long. The Very Vanilla piece on the bird card is 4.8cm long x 4.0cm wide. I have also rounded 2 of the corners on these pieces.
