Caseing my amazing friend!!

As you know, I sort of like Blendabilities!! Ok, I lurrvee them!!

I also love the Perfect Peacock stamp in the latest catalogue. It’s great for using blendies but you don’t really need to blend much on it as it’s small in parts.

My wonderful, talented friend, Emma Palonek who is a member of my team (she is my stamping niece!!), created a gorgeous card which I decided to case for my latest Stamp Club. Em doesn’t have a blog yet but you can check out her work on her Facebook page,

I love the idea of using the Typeset Specialty DSP as the background. I didn’t realise until I used it that it is a lighter weight paper than usual DSP. And the hint of gold foil is a lovely touch of bling.

To do the ribbon, I cut a long piece of the crumb cake seam binding ribbon, wet it and then scrunched it up into a ball in my hand and then dried it with my heat gun. I then tied the ribbon and scrunched it again and dried it more. And of course, it’s not complete without sequins!!

I’ve been having a play with my new Blendabilities and the new stamps I got in my latest order. I love the Perfect Peacock stamp. I saw a lovely card done at Convention and I couldn’t wait to receive my own so I could have a play. It didn’t take as long as I expected to colour in. I think it took longer to unthread the sequins and stick them on!! peacock I also wanted to try it using Dazzling Diamonds. So I stamped it in Versamark, then used some heat and stick powder and dunked a whole tub of Dazzling Diamonds onto it!! Did you know that glitter goes a looooong way. I think I’m still wearing it!!! The photo doesn’t really do it justice but the glitter seems to have hints of bermuda bay and blackberry bliss so I teamed them together. glitter peacock I’d love to hear what you think!!! Happy Stamping Rebecca
