Simple Peacock Note Card

Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend.  Are you experiencing the extremely hot and humid temperatures too?  Here in Georgia, we’ve been under heat advisories the past couple of days.  So you know what that means, time to stay indoors and create!  Today’s card share is a design from the August card class and is a simple Peacock Note Card.  Several of the elements used for the card are from the Noble Peacock Suite in the 2019-2020 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  The Royal Peacock Bundle includes the Detailed Peacock Dies and the Royal Peacock Stamp Set.   The peacock on today’s note card is cut using one of the peacock dies.  Did you notice, there is no stamping required for this peacock.  The Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Paper provides a beautiful backdrop for the peacock.  More details on creating the simple peacock note card are below the photo.

Simple Stamping Peacock Note Card

Details continued:

The card base is a Whisper White Note Card topped with the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The Blueberry Bushel designer series paper is 4-3/4″ x 3-1/4″.  Using the peacock die from the Detailed Peacock Dies, cut a piece of Sparkle Glimmer Paper (4-3/4″ x 2-3/4″).  Adhere the peacock to the side of the Blueberry Bushel layer. 

For the sentiment, stamp the “Hello” from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock using Blueberry Bushel Classic Stamp Pad.  Using the 1-1/2″ circle punch, cut around the sentiment.  Next, stamp the flowers from the Royal Peacock stamp set around the top and the bottom of the sentiment.  NOTE:  Placement of the flowers around the sentiment is easier after punching the stamped sentiment.   With the 1-3/4″ circle punch,  cut a piece of the Old Olive Foil from the Noble Peacock Foil sheets.  Adhere the sentiment circle to the foil circle.  Attach to card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Complete the card by wrapping the 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card and tie a knot.  

See how quick and easy it is to create a peacock note card!

Craft Fair Project

Happy Friday!  Hope you have plans for a fun and relaxing weekend.  Today I am sharing a project from last year’s 12 Weeks of Christmas newsletter.  Newsletter recipients received a variety of holiday project and gift ideas.  This project, stamped tile coasters,  is perfect as a craft fair project and is not holiday specific.  The coasters are stamped with the flower from the Beautiful Day stamp set.   We’re approaching the time of year when crafters are planning projects for fall and winter craft sales.  This is a quick, easy project and would be great for a craft fair or just as a gift.  Even better, you can make multiple sets at the same time.

Stampin’ Up! Project Materials:
  • Beautiful Day Stamp Set (#151257)
  • Stazon Jet Black Pad (#101406)
  • Stazon Jet Black refill (#102566)
  • Stampin’ Blends: Flirty Flamingo Light (#147031); Rich Razzleberry Light (#144584); Real Red Light (#147933); Highland Heather Light (#146881); Shaded Spruce Light (#147936); and Mango Melody Dark (#147983)
Other Materials:
  • 4″ x 4″ marble tumbled tiles
  • adhesive backed felt or adhesive backed cork for bottom of tiles
Directions:
  1. Wipe tiles with damp cloth to remove dust. Allow to dry.
  2. Ink stamp with Stazon Jet Black – be sure that ink pad is well inked.
  3. Stamp the image onto the tile using even pressure and hold for approximately 30 secs. to ensure that ink adheres to the tile.
  4. Allow to dry for approximately 5 minutes before coloring with Stampin’ Blends.
  5. Select desired Stampin’ Blends colors and color image. (refer to tips below before coloring)
  6. Put tiles into 250F oven for 20 minute (note: I put in oven, turned it off and left in overnight). Let cool before applying the adhesive tabs to bottom of tile.

TIPS:  Since Stazon ink is not recommended for use with Stampin’ Blends below are tips for coloring onto the tiles using the Blends:

  • Keep a paper towel handy to wipe the tip of the Blends often to remove any Stazon that may transfer to the tip of the Blends, especially with light colors.
  • In small areas (such as flower center), stipple with the tip of the Blends to color. Do not brush the
    image to color.
  • For the larger sections of the stamped image, use short strokes to color and color just up to but not over the Stazon ink.
  • Remember to wipe blends tip on paper towels.
