Recently I was asked if I would like to work with a few kits from Club Stamp (the stamping off shoot of Club Scrap). Well of course I said yes...you know how I love my rubber ;)
I was lucky enough to be able to use Octobers Peacock kit! It's a beautiful kit that came with an assortment of red, blue, green, purple & gold cardstock and a peacock feather print. The stamps for this kit contained 4 different sentiments and 5 different Peacock Feathers which enable you to create such a wide variety of projects.
Here is the first set of cards I made...
If my Memory....
I stamped the feathers with embossing ink then used Queen's Gold Embossing Powder (Ranger) to emboss. I then used a variety of chalks to add color to the feathers and the background. The sentiment is stamped with purple Archival Ink.
Genius Black Tag
I knew these feathers would look perfect embossed on a black tag! These feathers were stamped then embossed with Variegates EP, the sentiment was embossed with Extra Fine Gold EP
Happy Belated Birthday
Next I stamped all of the feathers at the top of the card with a blue ink. I then used my Gelatos to color the feathers! I can't believe how cool they turned out... I just kept layering the colors and it really gives them such depth (see the close up below)
I LOVE this card ~ It's so simple yet so striking. I stamped the same feather image using both blue and purple ink along the bottom of my panel. I then stamped the sentiment using black ink. I matted a portion of the peacock pattern paper and layered it on the left hand side. A few faux gemstones and it's done! Like I said...really easy but it packs a punch!
I have a few more cards I'm going to share with you tomorrow and then next week I have a guest designer spot over on the Club Scrap blog. I will be sharing a mini album I made using their Doubly Proud Brag Book kit. Of course I didn't follow directions but came up with a different mini album for you to enjoy ;)
