TGCDT September 2019 Blog Hop - Pretty Peacocks

peacock cards

The Noble Peacock Suite found on pages 24-25-26 of the Annual Catalogue is such a beautiful collection of creative tools.  From the six foil papers - three with embossed patterns, to the intricate dies and layered stamps, there are so many creative possibilities.

I must admit that I was a bit overwhelmed by the bright colours at first, but they quickly grew on me, and I have had such fun creating.  Today I want to share two cards with you, that work well together and use parts of each other in the design.  

After a few short technical difficulties with YouTube wanting to stream a blank black box, you finally get to see my video.  During this comedy special, be sure to watch for the 2019 ink dauber earthquake, my famous Darth Vader impression, and finally my skilled "how to stamp your sentiment after you've already adhered your matte to the front of the card - with dimensional no less...."  please enjoy!
