Hello everyone! It’s Maria Russell here with you and I am super excited to be guest designing for The Hedgehog Hollow.  For my project today, I am showcasing the Feather Background and Peacock stamp set, that is part of the September HH box.

To start, I stamped my image on Bristol smooth white card stock with Versamark ink.  I sprinkled this with some gold embossing powder by Wow and heat-set with my heating tool.

I used my Spectrum Noir Glitter brush pens (colors Blue Topaz and Soft Jade) to color my image.  Since this stamp set didn’t come with a coordinating die, I used my cutter-bee scissors to fussy-cut the image.

On another piece of Bristol smooth white card stock, I used my Newton’s Nook Clouds stencil and Peacock Feathers distress ink to create my clouds.  I die-cut two branches from a die that I have in my stash so that the peacock has something to perch on.  I adhered the first branch onto my colored background with liquid adhesive.  To add more dimension, I foam-mounted the other brach onto my card and also added foam adhesive to the peacock.

I die-cut some leaves using an older Lawn Fawn die set and adhered them with foam adhesive.

Since this card is mostly blues and greens, I decided to adhere some flower sprinkles onto my card for added texture and color.  I also added the scallop frame from an older Lawn Fawn die set to ground my images.

To finish my design, I stamped my sentiment using my Spectrum Noir Quick-Dry Dye ink in Lagoon and added some crystal jewels all over my background.  Here’s my card:

I really love the simplicity of this card.   I think the stamp sets that are included in the September box are so pretty, you can use it for any occasion.  I can’t wait to create more cards using the stamp sets.  Here’s a closer look at my card:

I also have a video tutorial for you below in case you’re interested.

Thank you so much for stopping by!   I’d love to see your projects using the September stamp sets.  Please tag me on Instagram @rprmlr77.   I will be back in a few days for more project inspiration.  Happy stamping!
