Hi everyone! I’ve only made two cards this week and I’m gonna put them both in this post! lol I’ve had this background piece laying on my desk for over a month, finally using it! Always fun to use an unusual color combo…it’s a Distress Oxide background with Channin’s Shammy technique. Ink blend on the ink and then hit it with your bunched up stamp cleaner shammy. Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers are the ink colors I think I used here.
I die cut a piece of black cardstock with the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die, then die cut the New Memory Box Summer Meadow Collage in it.
I die cut the New Memory Box Floating Swan in the inked panel and in a piece of black cardstock. I wanted the water movement in the inked panel. Very cool die!
The sentiment is from poppystamps Peony Stems and Blossoms stamp set. I added an extra black butterfly die cut with the Memory Box Pippi Butterfly die.
Then some Doodlebug and Echo Park Enamel Dots placed randomly. I did use mounting tape to adhere the Summer Meadow Collage to the inked background, then glued that directly on an A2 white cardbase.
Linking my Summer Meadow Collage card to the Crop Stop Anything Goes link party…
Next up… the New poppystamps Plumed Peacock and Delicate Branch Collage….
This is when you need a professional photographer…when you use mirror cardstock! lol My pictures don’t do the card justice. It’s quite striking IRL.
I die cut the Delicate Branch Collage die in a piece of gold mirror cardstock, then trimmed the panel down to fit on an A2 size panel of black cardstock.
I die cut the Plumed Peacock in glitter cardstock and pieced them in. I just put scotch tape on the back, then flip it over and put the pieces in.
I used mounting tape to adhere the gold panel to the black panel, then a little mounting tape strategically placed on the peacock so none of it would hit the branch collage die cut panel but still be popped up the same height as the panel.
I didn’t add a sentiment or anything to this card…I’m kind of a CAS girl but usually I at least have to have a sentiment! I was ok with this though. It’s very classy and elegant.
Thanks for stopping by today! I love hearing from you too! Links below if you want to see what products I used. See ‘ya later!

So very pretty! I am especially smitten with the sympathy card. Great job, as always!,,
That peacock is stunning!!! Love it! So the swan die comes with the water swirls too? That super cool!
Both cards are incredible, I love the black cardstock with the beautifully colored panel behind it, and the sentiment and swan are perfect! That peacock is beautiful too! Hope you have a great weekend. 🙂
Isn’t it fun to find a background on your desk that you can use. Both cards are a work of art.
WOW! Pam…both of these are gorgeous….Peacock so elegant. Love the background for swan..really looks like he is floating…is there a video for this technique? You have been on a beautiful roll my friend.
Love both cards. I’m particularly fond of the peacock one. Love them. I wouldn’t have thought to use glitter paper. It looks perfect. I have that die, and I will be trying that one very soon. Thanks for the inspiration.
I love your beautiful artwork! The foil peacock is quite stunning and glitzy, but classy! Beautiful! And the black butterfly and swan is so beautiful against the background colors! Wow! Impressive use of color and design! Great work!
Wow, the black is striking with those beautiful dies! I don’t know what could be more peaceful than a swan floating on water. Love how that die gives the water swirls. Beautiful blue/green and Summer Meadow frame. Then the gold with the glittery peacock — stunning! Not sure when I’ll get around to stamping again at this point. We were away on vacation last week and it takes time to readjust.
Both cards are lovely, but I really like the one you linked up to Cropstop! Such gorgeous colors paired with the black die cut panel — absolutely beautiful! Thanks so much for linking up!
Love both cards! Have the peacock, may have to try something similar.
Wow, Pam! I missed this post! Two gorgeous cards and my goodness the gem of a peacock is amazing what beautiful shimmering detail! Showstopper!
