Today's share is another Stampin' Up! Saleabration 2018 product which can be earned for free. This time it's the Beautiful Peacock stamp set. I have also used the Celbrate You Thinlits again (told you they were versatile!).
This is a super easy set to line up (it's photopolymer so use a foam stamping mat underneath when you stamp) and can be used in many different ways. I wanted quite a simple card today, so I just added some embossing from the Petal Pair embossing folder duo (in Occasions Catalogue) and the Celebrate Youdie cuts. To get the different colours on the feathers, I used a sponge dauber to sponge on a little Bermuda Bay to the feathers stamp that I had already inked up with Lemon Lime Twist.
I also wanted to show you a great trick that was demonstrated at the OnStage training event (another great perk of being a demonstrator) by Brandi, one of our US based trainers. Excuse the photos on these ones, as they were pictures of the video screen.
Brandi started out with the Beautiful Peacock, and it's tail stamped in different colours. This would make a great card by itself, but Brandi wanted to add a real WOW. So she went a couple more steps.
She used some of the Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon (available with 2 other colours as a free level 1 pick in the Saleabration catalogue, but we also have some in other colours in the Annual Catalogue) and pulled the shimmer thread in the ribbon to be ended with a fabulous frayed section of ribbon perfect for a peacocks tail. You can tie one end together securely using the thread you pulled out.
Here's how it looks added to the card with a few extra embellishments.
