SU Noble Peacock Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card I create for the Stampin’ Senorita’s Team Challenge.

It was a sketch challenge and I decided to showcase one of the retiring InColours – Blueberry Bushel.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock and this is followed by a layer of the Blueberry Bushel Noble Peacock Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP).

I have adhered a strip of Whisper White cardstock across the card to comply with the sketch. I have then created two banner shapes – one using the DSP and one from Whisper White cardstock. These have been slightly offset and adhered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greeting Stamp Set and is stamped in Blueberry Bushel ink onto Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment is cut out using the Classic Label Punch.

Lengths of Blueberry Bushel Grosgrain Ribbon and Silver Metallic Thread are adhered to the back of the sentiment piece using Tear & Tape. The whole piece is then adhered to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I think Blueberry Bushel is the colour I will miss most from the 2018-2020 InColours. Which is your favourite?

It’s their birthday when?!

Most of us like to fuss over our cards for hours! Carefully considering where to place the three gems and what sort of bow to tie in the ribbon. However, sometimes we need something quick and easy because we need to get it to the post box in the next 10 minutes!

With a little bit of stamping, punching and trimming, you can create this colourful card in minutes.

I have used:

  • the new ‘in-colour’ Stampin’ pads: Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove, Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover and Lovely Lipstick
  • Pick a Pennant stamp set
  • Thoughtful Banners stamp set
  • Duet Banner punch
  • Lovely Lipstick cardstock
  • Whisper White cardstock

Step 1: create your card base using Whisper White cardstock

Step 2: trim a piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock to make a background layer

Step 3: trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock to make your card front

Step 4: stamp the bunting a couple of times in Pineapple Punch and Grapefruit Grove ink

Step 5: stamp the star (first and second generation) in the other ink colours to create a background pattern

Step 6: stamp two banners and the words ‘Happy’ and ‘Birthday’ within them

Step 7: punch the banners out. In my example I have also used the Lovely Lipstick Write Marker to add some dimension to the banners

Step 8: adhere the banners and layer up your card

Step 9: put the kettle on and write the card, you still have plenty of time to get to the Post Office!

Step it up! If you have a little more time to spare, why not add some personalisation to the bunting? Add the recipient’s name or age or an extra message.
