My Top Pick: Noble Peacock Suite

Noble Peacock Suite by Stampin Up

Flipping through the catalog for the first time, I was immediately drawn to the Noble Peacock Suite. I’m not sure if it was the rich colors or the peacock or the amazing accessories but I knew I wanted to order this bundle first.

This suite includes the Royal Peacock Bundle with stamp set and dies, Beads & Baubles Embossing Folder, Designer Series Paper, Foil Sheets, Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon and new Rhinestones. Wow! So many options to create card, home decor, scrapbook pages and 3D projects.

And for perfect placement of the feathers, I recommend using the Stamparatus.

Noble Peacock Suite

I think the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper was what first caught my eye when I was looking through the new catalogue. I love the rich jewel-tones in this pack – Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive and Pretty Peacock – and the various foil accent designs on the papers, 

For this card, I added a couple of products not included in the bundle, the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends. If you are collecting the Blends, there are six new color sets available now.

I started this card by stamping the peacock in Pretty Peacock and then adding the stamped feathers layer in Granny Apple Green. I colored the body of the peacock with the light Pretty Peacock Blend. And then cut out the image with the Detailed Peacock Dies. I adhered the stamped image to a Stitched Nested Label cut out with Dimensionals.

The card itself is Pretty Peacock with a Whisper White cardstock layer embossed with the Beads & Baubles Folder. The next layer is the Old Olive DSP cut 5″ x 2″.

I added the Reversible Ribbon and Rhinestones as embellishments before adhering the card together and attaching the greeting.

Daisy Lane and a new Daisy Punch

Daisy Lane by Stampin Up

Is the Daisy Lane Bundle on your wish list? It really should be.

The daisies are made from Purple Posy cardstock – one of five new In Colors for 2019 – 2021 introduced with the new catalogue. The Daisy Lane stamp set is a set of 9 including a large and medium daisy as well as 4 greetings and additional floral and  greens. And the bundle includes the new Medium Daisy punch.

For more creative options, add the larger Daisy Punch to your order if you don’t already own it. One of my favourite cards features this punch. See the card here.

The stunning doily-like background was made with the Stitched Lace Dies. Cut out a card sized piece with the  lace die and then use it as a card front, create a complete card or trim down the lace to single, double or triple ribbons with the included edge. This card features two rows cut from the die.  I have used this die quite a bit and recommend it.

Daisy Lane Card in Purple Posy

To complete the card, I added a greeting stamped in Crumb Cake which is the same colour I used on the daisies.  A Linen Thread bow goes across the card. The center of the daisies are Gold Faceted Gems and the leaves are punched with the Leaf Punch in Pear Pizzazz.

 

Daisy Lane and Medium Daisy Punch

Each daisy is made with three layers of punched cardstock. The bottom layer is unstamped and is mostly to add stability and depth. The top two layers are first and second generation stamped images. For this card, I alternated the two generations on each daisy for a subtler and more muted flower.

A first generation image is stamped directly after inking up the stamp. A second generation image is stamped without re-inking the stamp and is, of course, lighter than the first stamped image. You can continue with third generation and beyond depending on the look you want.

Share What You Love Suite is Retiring

Although the Love What You Do stamp set will still be available with the new catalogue, most of the coordinating products will no longer be available.

We will be saying goodbye to the Artisan Pearls, Velvet Ribbon, Embellishment Kit, Lovely Floral Embossing Folder and Cardstock Pack. But most of all, the lovely and versatile Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is retiring. Order now so you don’t miss out. This package has 24 sheets of 12″ x 12″ heavyweight sheets many with a translucent, pearlized finish.

The colours on this card are Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz and I used the Petal Burst embossing folder on the front of the card. This favourite folder of mine is also retiring.

To make the card, cut a piece of Mossy Meadow 11″ by 4-1/4″ and score in half at 5-1/2″. Cut at 2-3/4″ to create the piece that is used on the front.

The designer series paper is 4″ x 5-1/4″.

Added to the Mossy Meadow piece is a Pear Pizzazz layer cut to 2-1/2″ x 4″ and a Whisper White piece cut to 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″.
