Colour Creations Pretty Peacock - Week 42

Hello fellow crafters! This week I am participating in the 2023-24 Colour Creations blog hop where team members of the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! demonstrators showcase a new colour every Wednesday. This week’s colour is Pretty Peacock, a beautiful regal blue-green colour. I love this colour and so glad to see it back in the permanent Stampin’ Up! Colour Family.

One of my faves in the Jan-April Mini catalogue is the Sweet Thoughts Memories & More card pack. It contains several double-sided cards and stickers that can be used to make cards, scrapbooking or even journaling.
There are also coordinating card bases and envelopes to go with the card pack.

The card is a bi-fold card, where the front panel is scored at the halfway mark. For my Pretty Peacock card base I stamped the daisy flowers on the front and inner using VersaMark ink and heat embossed with White embossing powder. The daisy stamp is from the Lifetime of Love set.

I have die cut some decorative panels from Calypso Coral card stock using the Thoughtful Expressions die set. Using the next smallest die I also die cut some of the printed cards from the Sweetest Thoughts Memories and More card pack. The first was adhered with dimensionals on the front panel and the second adhered with double-sided tear tape.

The thin floral embellishment was die cut from Lemon Lolly card stock using the floral dies in the same die set (including the flower centre). To finish the card I adhered some floral stickers also found in the card pack. 

Hope you enjoy the remaining blog hop where you can find 
more Pretty Peacock inspiration from the very talented Theresa Gerrard.

  8. I love the way you have used M7M cards and die cut them, Rosa. They look great on the layered labels and the fun fold.
