So Proud of You

I have finally had a chance to play with my Noble Peacock stamp bundle and the coordinating supplies.  I made two cards and this is the first one.  Suitable for many occasions and also for either a male or female recipient.

I have used both regular cardstock and the Noble Peacock Specialty DSP and Foil Sheets for the card and layers.

I have made 2 different cards using the Add-On Bundle. My first card is using the front of the Pretty Peacock card, I cut the front off the card at 3-1/2" x 5" and added a layer of Calypso Coral to a Pretty Peacock card base. Using the coordinating cardstock colours I cut out leaves using the Gathered Leaves dies. (** By spraying your cardstock with water the deep embossed effect gives you a tone on tone colour for the leaves and cuts them out.**)

My second card uses the other card design and I used the same card layout except this time I used a Blackberry Bliss card base and a Crushed Curry layer.

I also made a gift card holder using Crumb Cake cardstock. Started with a 3" x 7" piece and scored it in the middle at 3-1/2". On the long sides I scored 1/4" in from each edge. Cut both 1/4" sides off on one half of the cardstock and folded the other sides on the score lines. Used a 1" circle punch to cut a half circle in the end to make it easy to get the gift card in and out. Glued the front to the back and voila!

Daisy Lane - "Smile"

This card is a tone on tone card but uses the accent of the In Colour Lovely Lipstick.  I have to say that I really love this colour and see many uses for every season.

I used the embossing folder to give the tone on tone (White) some depth so it didn't appear to be so plain.  A simple card but with alot of texture!

A Gift For You - "jeans style"

When I got my new stamp set "Pocketful of Happiness" from the annual catalogue I saw the image of a jeans pocket somewhat similar to a pair of jeans that I have, combined with others seen in the clothes stores!
It is a great way to include a monetary gift for someone!  Just coincidence that my $10 bill matched with the colour combination that I chose.


I chose my card colours from the DSP that became my jeans pocket. I stamped the flower with versamark onto watercolour paper and embossed with gold embossing powder.  Then I coloured with Calypso Coral, Old Olive and So Saffron and fussy cut out the whole image.

Daisy Lane - Pink Petal Daisy

Another card using the Daisy Lane bundle.  This one uses Blushing Bride to make a daisy with a Granny Apple colour coordination.

I saw the use of our grid paper for a card layer made by Cheryl Piotrowski and really loved this colour combination.  For this card I used a sentiment from the Daisy Delight stamp set but you could use one from the Daisy Lane bundle.
