Simple & Stunning Detailed Peacock Cards

Hi Stamping Friends!
One of the most popular suites from the Annual Catalog has been the Noble Peacock suite featuring beautiful peacock images, intricate dies and shiny foils and papers!  Is it one of your favorites, too?
Today, I'm sharing a couple of swap cards I received that show how to use the lovely Detailed Peacock dies to create a simple & stunning all-occasion card.
But first, I need to let my Fort Wayne stampers know that I had to reschedule my "Last Thursdays" monthly card class for Wednesday, August 28, 2019, due to a prior commitment. Details below…

Peggy's White Detailed Peacock Card
Peggy Tassler created this shiny Noble Peacock card spotlighting the intricate Detailed Peacock dies!  
Background Basics—Peggy started with a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Old Olive Noble Peacock Specialty Paper and added a strip of 3/8" Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon across the front with the ends secured on the back with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  She mounted the background onto a Blueberry Bushel card base.  Next, she added a 3" x 4-1/4" piece of Blueberry Bushel Noble Peacock Foil Sheets, popped up with Dimensionals over the ribbon.

Peacock Focal Point—Peggy used the Detailed Peacock dies to die-cut a strikingly intricate peacock from Whisper White cardstock.  If you look closely, you can see that the die also lightly embosses some feather texture.  She topped off he feathers with Noble Peacock Rhinestones in Blueberry Bushel, Pretty Peacock and Old Olive. Love that detail!
She purposely left the sentiment off of the card, so this pretty card can be used for any occasion!

Judy's Floral Essence Detailed Peacock Card
Judy Garza also created a beautiful all-occasion card highlighting the die (and also without a sentiment). 
Background Basics—Judy began by embossing a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock with the Beads & Baubles embossing folder.  I love how that texture mimics the peacock feather patterns.  She mounted that onto a Blueberry Bushel card base.  
For the foundation for the peacock, Judy, die-cut a Layering Ovals shape from Pool Party cardstock and sponged the edges with Blueberry Bushel ink before popping it up with Dimensionals onto the card front.

Peacock Focal Point—Judy used the Detailed Peacock dies to die-cut the peacock shape from the Blueberry Bushel Noble Peacock Foil Sheets, as well as from the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper. She trimmed the feathers from the DSP shape and adhered them directly over the foil sheet, then adhered the peacock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I love that she covered all of the feathers with Wink of Stella shimmer!  Gorgeous!
She also die-cut some Blueberry foil leaves and tucked them under the oval.  She finished up by adding a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones floating around the peacock.
