World Treasures

By | July 14, 2012

Hi Stampin' Friends

I made today's card for Debbie's private class on Thursday, 19 July 2012 and uses the World Treasures Stamp Set and Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set.  It's cased from the card shown on page 98 of the 2012-2013 Catalog.

Famous for their showy feathers, peacocks are also a symbol of fidelity. Use this four-piece set to create a unique card expressing your love for someone special. Coordinates with the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies and the exotic International Bazaar Designer Series Paper.

PunchI stamped the peacock image in Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit and Raspberry Ripple on Whisper White Card Stock.  The last layer was colored in using  the Tangerine Tango and Lucky Limeade Stampin' Write Markers.   I then cut them out individually – yes, it took a while!  The Summer Starfruit layer was not cut but punched with the Scallop Circle Punch.

This pix taken after all layers had been cut out and adhered together. TIP:  Before cutting out the peacock, add scotch tape to the back of the image.  It stablizes the tiny sections when you cut around them.


I made a mistake when I put the card together and didn't see it until I was taking a picture for the blog.  The first person who guess what the mistake was, will win a stack of 6 x 6 2011/2012 DSP (last year's).  Just leave a comment on the post and please include an e-mail address.  US only please!

    Hi Rachel,

    Although it looks fine, did you mean to put the fancy fan layer on with the smooth side up?

    Bummer….Rachel said exactly what I was gonna say….I think the Fancy Fan EF is upside down….but I still like the way it looks!

    I think the embossed piece is the debossed side. But, I certainly wouldn’t call it a mistake!

    It’s a beautiful card,no matter if you made a “mistake”. I really like the peacock and the way you layered him. So cool. Thanks for sharing!
    Inky hugs,

    I would say that the yellow tail feathers are not centered over the raspberry ones that are behind but you would have to be looking for mistakes to guess that. I didn’t notice it at first.
