Heartfelt Creations - Golden Peacock

Welcome Back Friends to this months BRAND NEW RELEASE from Heartfelt Creations. This month we are debueting the gorgeous Ornate Peacock Collection. You will fall in love with the rich color tones and the absolutely stunning Ornate Window Cling Stamp and Die which graces this collection. My imagine went wild when I saw this collection, and that window.....Oh My!!! I just had to make something Regal and Magical so I decided on a window shaker card with a perched peacock sitting with a little Royal flair. Lets take a look...




Cut a piece of white card stock to 7 1/2” x 10 1/2” and score in half at 5 1/4”. With HCD2-7326 Ornate Flourish Gateway Die use the largest die and cut through both layers of the folded card base making sure to let the left edge of the die fall over the edge of the card to preserve the fold. This will create the shaped card base. Next using the same die, cut one from white and one from Luxe Gold Card stock. Attach the white to the front of the card base followed by the gold. Next, using the 2 largest dies together, cut sheet 5A from the HCDP1-2148 Peacock Paper Collection. Ink the edges using the HCDA2-450 Stack and Store Daubers with Blue Bird and Library Green Archival Inks. Attach on top of the Luxe Gold Card stock. Next using the 3rd largest die from the HCD2-7325 Scalloped Flourish Gateway Die cut sheet 8B and ink edges with Library Green. Glue to the center of the card front.

Stamp the window from the HCPC-31016 Ornate Window Cling Stamp Set onto watercolor paper with Potting Soil Archival Ink. Using Tim Holtz Watercolor Pencils in Fire Brick, Rusty Hinge, and Walnut Stain color the window. Die cut with coordinating die, then ink the edges with Potting Soil for a finished look. Stamp the top portion of the window onto Luxe Gold Card stock with Encore Gold Ink and heat emboss with Ranger Gold Embossing Powder. Die cut with coordinating die. Using the same Gold embossing combination and stamp and heat emboss the Peacock from the HCPC-31015 Peacock & Posies Cling Stamp Set and the flourish from the HCPC-31014 Ornate Peacock Cling Stamp Set onto white card stock. Color with daubers with Sunflower, Magenta Hue, Paradise Teal, Blue Bird, and Viridian, Archival inks. Lastly stamp the flowers from HCPC-3976 Curvy Floral Frame Cling Stamp Set in Magenta Hue onto white card stock. Color with Magenta Hue, Pink Peony, and Vibrant Fuchsia. Die cut with coordinating die and shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Finish the flowers adding Bright Pearl Stamens, Small and Crystal Clear Glitter. 

To create the shaker first die cut 4 hinges from the HCD1-7285 Window Hinges Dies from Luxe Gold Card stock. Cut the little tabs off the sides of the colored window and glue the gold hinges to the top 2 hinges on both sides. (The bottom hinges will not show). Now use the middle die from the HCD1-7452 Ornate Window Die set and cut one from sheet 5A and one from Clear Card stock. Attach the clear card stock onto the back of the window and add two layers of Adhesive Foam Strips. Using an anti-static tool, dust the inside of the window. Now add some sequins and  un peel the back of the adhesive and attach the matching piece of sheet 5A that was cut. Now secure the window to the card front. Now add the gold embossed top section to the window with foam dots to finish the window.

To complete the card arrange the peacock so that it is sitting gracefully upon the windowsill. Use foam dots in between sections of the wings add depth. Lastly glue a few lovely flowers to add even more elegance. Finish the inside of the card as desired.

I hope you enjoyed that as much as I enjoyed creating it for each of you! Check out my personal project in the Heartfelt Creations Gallery to find out what products I used for this project.
