Peacock All Occasion Cards

Hi Everyone,
Hope you had a great weekend!  Today, I have two fun Peacock cards for you.





This image is from Stamping Sensations and is something I picked up at a stamping convention last year.    It the was stamped in black ink and all the color is added with Distress inks applied with a Distressing tool. Then, I ran them through the Cuttlebug in an embossing folder.  Love this effect.






The DP on both cards is from K & Company.  The card base and layers is made from Not Quite Navy (Stampin' Up).  I added a bright yellow ribbon to this one.





The second card has a bright green ribbon and is made in the same manner.





How about a few fun Challenges?!
Simon Says Stamp: Lemon and Lavender
Sir Stampalot: Anything goes
Cheerful Stamp Pad: Favorite Background: using an embossing folder on an inked and colored image.
Bling It On: Anything goes
Paper Take Weekly: Anything goes


Well, I guess that's it for me today.  I have some submissions to get ready to go out this week.  How about a few more new releases from Blockheads for tomorrow?  Yes, that sounds good.  So, I will be back tomorrow with some cool ATC's using some of the Blockheads' New Releases.  Have a great day!  Love ya.
Karen

This is certainly a lovely technique Karen. I really do like that embossing folder. I think it is on my list now. My friend happen to be over for coffee today and she has just bought one for herself and was showing me.

Both cards are beautiful. Glad that I don't have to choose one over the other! And isn't that embossing folder great?
