Stampin' Up! Pretty Peacock


This week, is week  42 in the Colour Creations blog hop and this week we continue our journey through the existing Stampin' Up! core colours, working in alphabetical order. This week our feature colour is  Pretty Peacock, a member of the Regals family of colours and to be completely honest one of my least favourite colours. 

This week I have chosen to use another bundle from the current mini catalogue, Lovely and Sweet. I have teamed Pretty Peacock with Lost Lagoon, Gold, White and a touch of Bubble Bath.

The main image, from the Lovely and Sweet stamp set, has been stamped in Versamark on White cardstock and then embossed in gold. The flower centres have been lightly coloured using Bubble Bath Stampin Blends. The image has then been die cut using the matching die from the Lovely and Sweet dies. This has then been mounted onto a piece of Masterfully Made Designer Series Paper.

After embossing a piece of White cardstock using one of the Basics 3D embossing folders, available exclusively online, I adhered this to the Pretty Peacock card base. 

Between the embossed White base and the Masterfully Made DSP I have added a piece of the Most Adored Specialty DSP which has been lightly coloured using Lost Lagoon and Bubble Bath Stampin'  Blends. This has been adhered to a a couple of strips of Distressed Gold Specialty paper. 

Wrapped around the band of the card is a piece of Lost Lagoon Bordered Ribbon as well as piece of Gold Simply Elegant Trim. Tinsel Gems Four Pack in Pretty Peacock have also been added to the flower centres and the card base. 

The sentiment, from the Something Fancy stamp set, has been white embossed onto Lost Lagoon card and die cut using one of the Something Fancy dies. 

To decorate the inside of the card I have stamped another image from the Lovely and Sweet stamp set using gold embossing and colouring with Lost Lagoon and Bubble Bath Stampin' Blends.

  1. Theresa your card is beautifully put together. I love the gold accents coordinating with Pretty Peacock and Lost Lagoon with the soft touch of pink together with the ribbon and gold thread.

  2. Pretty Peacock looks lovely with Lost Lagoon and white ... and the addition of gold elevates everything to the next level. You've used this (what I consider) gorgeous colour beautifully, T!

  3. I love Pretty Peacock with gold and the pop of Bubble Bath is lovely

  4. A beautiful card Theresa. Looking at your card, no one could tell that Pretty Peacock isn’t a favourite colour. I love your colour combination, including the touches of gold, your layering and accents are all beautiful xxx

  5. Looking at your beautiful card I'd never know you didn't like this colour, Theresa! The touches of gold are perfectly placed.

  6. This is such a beautiful card! Snap on the colour combo of Pretty Peacock and Lost Lagoon! There is so much detail and gorgeous layers to your card! The gold and the embossing is lovely! I think it is a beautiful sympathy card and they are not easy to create!

  7. You've done very well with a colour that you don't particularly like! Your card is classy and elegant, perfect for a sympathy card.

  8. For a colour you don't like very much you have made a beautiful card Theresa.
