As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I get the privilege of pre-ordering from the upcoming catalogs before the rest of you even get to see it. (and at a discount no less!) My new box of awesome Halloween and Christmas goodies showed up on my doorstep late last week and do you know what I did all weekend? You would think I couldn’t wait to break out all my new toys, right? Wrong. I just can’t seem to get enough of this stinkin’ peacock!
I have had the idea rolling around in my head of turning my Perfect Peacock into a Christmas Partridge (minus the pear tree) for weeks. I finally had to get it out of my head and onto paper before it rattled around in there any longer.
Isn’t he beautiful? (if I do say so myself!) I heat embossed him in Gold on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock (that had been pre-cut with my Silhouette). Then I broke out my Blendabilities in Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler . For the pinkish centers in the picture above I used the light marker from the Cherry Cobbler Blendability set and went over it with the light Old Olive Blendability marker to dull the red a little. For the gold centers in the picture below, I use our Gold Stampin’ Dazzle marker.
Which one do you like best? I still can't decide.
He was finished off with some Crystal effects on the flowers, a 5/8” Gold Satin Ribbon bow and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. The Peace on Earth sentiment is from the holiday carryover set Greetings of the Season which will be retiring with the new Holiday Catalog release at the end of this month.
Please let me know what you think and leave me a comment with which one you like best!
Thanks for stoppin' by!
