Poppin' Pastels Peacock

We made this matchbook-style card in Stamp Club this month. Poppin' Pastels is a classic technique, and a very easy way to produce a multi-color image with minimal effort.

Supplies: Very Thankful stamp set,Versmark Ink Pad, 4-1/4” x 11” Bermuda Bay cardstock, scored at 5” & 10-1/4”, 2” x 2-1/2” Whisper White cardstock, 2-1/4” x 2-3/4” Crushed Curry cardstock, 1-1/2” x 4” Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, Bermuda Bay scrap cardstock, Photo Corner Punch, Mini Glue Dots, Stapler


  1. Fold the bottom ¾” of the Bermuda Bay cardstock and add a staple in the middle near the bottom to create a matchbook style card.
  2. Stamp the peacock in Versamark ink on Whisper White cardstock. Use the q-tips to spread Stampin’ Pastels chalk over the Versamark ink to create a multi-colored peacock. Adhere this piece to the Crushed Curry cardstock.
  3. Punch a Photo Corner from the Bermuda Bay scrap cardstock. Adhere it to the corner of the peacock embellishment using Mini Glue Dots. (Note: SNAIL is not strong enough to hold it, make sure to use Mini Glue Dots.)
  4. Adhere Razzleberry Lemonade DSP to the front of the card. Adhere the peacock over the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I didnt' think I liked the peacock stamp until I saw it done with this technique. Beautiful!
