Pretty as a Peacock

Hello All,

Stamping doesn't have to be expensive.  I purchased  a clear stamp set of a Peacock and Peacock feathers at an amazing deal.  Such a good deal that I bought 2, (be on alert some SOC member will be getting RAK'd).  What I already had on hand, Block embossing ink, clear embossing powder, misc bling (I got free in something that I normally would have thrown away if I weren't a paper crafter), also blue and black card stock.

I stamped the Peacock with Black embossing ink and embossed with clear embossing powder and a heating tool.  I stamped the large peacock feathers with black ink, and cut is in half and added the bling.  I layer the peacock as well as the feathers stamped on blue layered with black then blue, place on a black card.  I place a layer of Blue inside of the card.   I attached the peacock across the opening with dimension foam on one side and a magnet set on the other to allow it to open. 

What do you think?  Is it pretty as a peacock?

Look at what you have on hand, and enjoy using all the supplies you have collected.  Have a great week.

Scrappingly yours,



  1. I like this stamp set. It reminds me of the Graphic 45 paper.

  2. Thanks, I really like the stamp set, but I must say I was a little intemidated that I would be able to use it well. My next try I would like to somehow get colors in the stamped image instead of a black stamp and do it on a lighter card stock. Any ideas?
