I finally got around to using this beautiful stamp set called "Shake a Tail Feather" from Local King Rubber Stamp Company that I got in the Fall from the Richmond Hill Scrapfest. If you know me at all you know that I LOVE Peacocks and even have a Peacock themed guest bathroom LOL. Of course as soon as I saw these I knew they were coming home with me!
The Stamp set also has a "Shake a Tail Feather" matching die set you can purchase which really made using these super easy!
I stamped these peacock in the Hero Arts Ombre Pool to Navy ink pad. I love how they turned out and will sure be purchasing more of the Ombre ink pads in the future. I also used embossing folders to create a nice texture to the white cardstock.
Embossing Folders Used:
Darcie: Large Petal
Couture Creations: Petal Pleasures
Stamping Up: Elegant Bouquet
Bringing Crafts To You: Spots & Dots
For the sentiments I used words from the Little B Handwritten die set. First I cut them out of adhesive backed foam and then cut a second set from some paper with the Ombre ink applied. It makes for easy application of the foam when it already has adhesive on he back and I just glued the ombre die cuts on top of their matching foam ones.
Now I have a nice set of cards to give as gift. I was thinking of adding the envelopes and tying a big ribbon to keep them together as a set. I hope your having a great day and thanks for stopping by!
