Here are some more sample cards to make with the Peacock Feather Stamp. Remember, the wood mounted version of this stamp is scheduled to be featured at Michael’s Stores as part of their Stamp-tember Celebration at 50% off this Friday and Saturday (September 9 & 10). (But it looks like there is a coupon NOW which is good through the 17th of Stamptember for 25% off your entire rubber stamp purchase…weeeee!) (So really we don’t know what is happening, but we hope you love the stamp!)
You can see how versatile this stamp is! Wow! The feathers on the scrapbook page were embossed in three colors of powder. Debi stamped them in VersaMark ink and sprinkled our Champagne PEARLustre on part of each feather then shook it off. Then she sprinkled Sapphire PEARLustre powder on part of each one and shook off the excess, then PEARLustre Emerald on each one. Once heated she achieved this great look! On the frame she covered the entire frame with Boss Gloss Embossing Ink. She then covered the frame with Sapphire, Emerald and Amethyst PEARLustre powders one section at a time. When the whole frame was covered she heated it carefully to set the powder. Then she went back after the frame cooled and embossed the feathers on the frame with our Champagne PEARLustre powder. WOW! Finally the etched vase was made by our Graphics Manager Laura Weed. So simple to do, just clean a glass vase with rubbing alcohol to remove any residues or oils. Next apply clear contact paper to the parts of the vase above and below the etched stripe. Use VersaMark ink and Clear Embossing Powder to emboss the feathers in the open space. When heating glass, do so very carefully. We like to start from a distance and heat slowly so as not to crack the vase. Also use caution to avoid melting the contact paper. After heating use a damp foam brush to evenly apply Armour Etch to the open stripe following the manufacturer’s directions. Allow to set then simply rinse off under running water. Rubbing slightly will remove the embossed images at the same time as the etching cream. When dry you’ll have a beautiful etched stripe with clear feathers in it. Imagine this technique on small glass votives for a wedding! Gorgeous! You can find all the products for these projects at your local Michael’s Stores!
