It’s time to say Goodbye to the Royal Peacock stamp set along with the rest of the items in the suite. I loved the Nobel Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper and Foil sheets. They are just so pretty I had to use all of the foil colors on this card along with a piece of the specialty DSP. I even stamped the inside of the card, I don’t usually do that because I donate many of the cards I make.
I used the light Calypso Coral, Light Smoky Slate, Light Soft Suede, and Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends markers to color the image. Then I inked around it using Balmy Blue and a make up brush. I also inked the smaller circle because the white was too stark.
I don’t have to be too sad to say goodbye to Daisy Delight because I also have the Daisy Lane stamp set and it’s sticking around. I will miss using the Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder for blog posts but it will be staying in my collection because I love it. After stamping the flowers, I inked the top of the die cut with Balmy Blue. For the daisy, I used my bone folder to curve the petals up and then to curve the ends of the petals down.
I’m following the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Challenge #456 which is pretty similar to many of the cards I’ve made lately. 🙂
I decided to play with my embossing paste on this card. I mixed a few drops of Gray Granite re-inker into a pile of embossing paste for the background. I also created the mask for the background by using the stones die from the Animal Friends dies.
The Let it Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper is just so cute. I love the little snowmen covered in glitter. I had a really hard time trying to get that glitter and the glitter in the shimmery crystal effects to show up on camera. The sentiment is double heat-embossed using white embossing powder and the Stamparatus.
I’m playing along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge today.
I love the Nature’s Beauty stamp set located in the back of the Holiday Catalog. Not only does it support mental health but it’s a beautiful set. Apparently I’ve been in a monochromatic mood this week because neither card this week have been exactly colorful.
