Welcome to the Occassion/Sale-a-Bration blog hop. That's the theme this month. I'm super excited to show you the fun technique cards I created with the BEAUTIFUL PEACOCK stamp set and BRUSHO CRYSTAL COLOURS!!!

You might be arriving from the fabulous Cindy Elam or you might be starting right here with my blog...either way...make sure you go to the bottom and look for the NEXT graphic (it looks just like the one above only says "click here to proceed") and continue on the hop with us! There are 8 blogs in this  hop with fabulous creations to share with you.

Here's what I came up with:


The blue and yellow BRUSHO colors reminded me of the colors of a peacock so it seemed fitting to use the BEAUTIFUL PEACOCK stamp set for my cards. This is one of the FREE stamp sets you can get with the Sale-a-Bration promotion and your $50 order. The Organza Ribbon is in the Occasions Mini Catalog and I took the white ribbon and used the Dapper Denim Marker to color the edges blue - super cool to be able to have ribbon to match any color as long as you have a marker right?


Ingredient List:

Stamps: Beautiful Peacock (FREE Sale-a-Bration)

Ink: Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy

Cardstock: (see below)

Accessories: Brusho Crystal Colours, Stampin' Spritzers, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Layering Circle Framelits, Big Shot, In Color Markers 2016-2018, Dimensionals, Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes


  • Dapper Denim 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2" & scrap
  • Emerald Envy 4" x 5-1/4"
  • Watercolor Paper 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" & scrap
  • Whisper White 1/2" x 2-1/2"

I just love how every time I use these crystals they turn out different and they the color has such depth. What do you think?


For the card below I made a background just like the one on the peacock card and die cut the HAPPY BIRTHDAY THINLITS out of it - love the tie-died effect right? I used the Tree Builder Punch to get the little flowers on the BEAUTIFUL PEACOCK vines stamped image. Two very different cards with the same stamp set. I stamped greetings in the inside using the Better Together stamp set on Whisper White layers.
