Sale abration sneak peek for PCC268

The moment I saw this sketch, I knew it needed to use the Peacock stamp set from the Sale-abration.  Ever since I first saw the Eastern Palace suite, I kept thinking I needed a peacock stamp, so you can only imagine my excitement to find one available during Sale-abration.  I knew immediately which DSP and color scheme I would use when creating this card.

The colors in the strip of DSP I choose to use helped determine which colors I would use for cardstock and ink.  I chose to use a Dapper Denim card base with Very Vanilla card front and Lemon Lime Twist horizontal strip.  I used markers to color in the peacock body stamp using Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist.  Then, I used Dapper Denim and Lemon Lime Twist for the tail feathers.  I

None of the floral stamps included in the set were large enough to create the flower I wanted on the front, so I used a retired Petite Petals punch with Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim, and Tranquil Tide finished off with a Clear Faceted Gem Center.  I saved the cute little flower stamps included in the stamp set and used one to decorate the inside panel with Dapper Denim, Lemon Lime Twist, and Tranquil Tide.

    1. Thank you Deborah. I have been not so patiently waiting for a peacock stamp to combine with the Eastern Palace Suite. I think Stampin' Up! can read my mind.
