Feathery Inspiration JAI#236

Hello Crafters,

Melbourne is a very windy day today and hoping to reach 29 degrees, so I will quickly share a card I have made for the Just Add Ink ‘Feathery Inspiration‘ Challenge before heading out to a family BBQ!

I love this colour combination and needed to make a card for my friends birthday next week, and guess what her favourite colours are? Yes, blues and greens!!!

Flower Patch Peacock

I started with a card base of Bermuda Bay and a layer of coordinating DSP. I then stamped the Flower Patch Photopolymer Stamps starting with Pool Party, then Pistachio Pudding then Bermuda Bay. I used the coordinating dies Flower Fair to die cut the images. The body of the peacock is Pacific Point card stock.

I used the 1/2″ & 3/8″ circle punches and the heart is from the Owl Builder Punch.

I added some rhinestones to the feathers for some more interest and who doesn’t love a bit of bling?!!!.

I added the sentiment from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set in Pacific Point and used the small oval punch.

Peacock Flower Patch

The inside of the card I stamped an image from the Bordering Blooms stamp set in Memento Black ink then coloured with the coordinating Blendabilities.

Flower Patch with a twist!

Hello Crafters,

First of all today, I want to wish my gorgeous girl, Annika a very happy 8th birthday. I can’t believe we are so blessed to have had you for 2920 days in our lives already!

To commemorate this special day, I wanted to share with you some of her favourite colours and they can be found on one very beautiful bird that I grew up with in our neighbourhood living so close to the Cataract Gorge in Launceston, Tasmania.

No, I don’t live in Tassie anymore, but I still have the most vivid memories as a child growing up in such a gorgeous environment and these stunning birds wandering around.

Yes, it is the peacock!

Flower Patch Peacock

I have created this using the Flower Patch Stamp Set and the Flower Fair framelits dies which can be purchased as bundle saving you a huge 15%.

I also used the Owl punch.

I should have photographed him before I put it into the frame to stop the glare off the glass, but I think you can see him clearly enough.

Flower Patch Peacock

I used Pool Party as the base of the feathers, then Pistachio Pudding then Bermuda Bay. The body of the peacock is Pacific Point cardstock and I sponged the edges with the same colour ink and a sponge dauber. The circles are punched from Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake and a Pacific Point heart with a tiny Bermuda Bay dot.

Rhinestones were added to the feathers for a bit of bling as these birds are such a showy animal!

Please leave a message to let me know what you think of my design.
