Stampin' Up! Perfect Peacock by Linda!

Hey there! Just a quick post this afternoon before I'm off to a stamp class in West Frankfort this evening!

I held my quarterly Yes Mam's downline meeting on Saturday. We had a shoebox swap, a yummy potluck lunch, and a class taught by Crystal Lopez on using the soon-coming Blendabiities alcohol markers from Stampin' Up! It was a blast!

I encourage my downline to bring projects they have been working on and sharing in their classes, and of course everyone is encouraged to bring their cameras to take pics of my displays and the projects their sister Mam's share.

Linda Reaney brought two cards she had created using the new Perfect Peacock stamp from the Annual Catalog. First, she stamped, colored with markers, then added a used dryer sheet with our Stampin' Glue Stick. Lastly she sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds glitter:



It's quite pretty, but it pales in comparison to her next creation:


For this one Linda stamped, colored with markers, and then used the "Faux Diamond Dust" technique to give it the all-over sparkle! Gorgeous!

Here's a quick step-by-step for "Faux Diamond Dust":

1. Stamp image and color as needed.

2. Pat entire cardstock piece with an Embossing Buddy to completely dry the ink so it won't smear when you do Step #3.

3. Pat a Versamark inkpad all over image piece. Make sure you have the clear, sticky ink evenly all over the image and the surrounding cardstock.

4. Sprinkle all with Iridescent Ice Stampi' Emboss Powder. Tap excess back into container.

5. Heat with Heat Tool. Do not over-heat, as this will cause the Iridescent Ice to lose its' sparkle.

Linda did an excellent job coloring the peacock, and her choice of combining this image with the "Faux Diamond Dust" technique was pure genius!

That's all for now! You can purchase your Perfect Peacock stamp and all the supplies to do the Faux Diamond Dust technique from my Online Store:
