Finding Inspiration in your cardmaking …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Are you a lover of peacocks? I love the colors of the peacock … so regal, like gem stones!

I was amazed at all the beautiful cards and more that have been created around the peacock. Today I’d like to share some cards and other things that I have found on Pinterest, or have seen created by others and shared on the incentive trip.  Let’s take a look …

Let’s take a look at some other peacock creations where we can get some inspiration from … I found this invitation on Pinterest, it is simple and very elegant.

Now let’s step outside of the box and find inspiration in cakes! I chose these beautiful creations because of the different colors they used.  This one is done in the traditional colors …

I found this one so pretty done in greens … do you think you could use this color pallet on your next peacock card?

I have one more cake that I would like to share with you. This cake is stunning in white and gold, how beautiful a card would be using the Royal Peacock bundle in these colors.  You could also use lace / doilies to embellish your card.

Can you see a card from these inspiring and beautiful cakes.  I love looking all over to find inspiration … my favorite place? Outside! God has created the most stunning color pallets … beautiful trees against a stunning sunset, fall leaves swirly to the ground, the sparkles that dance across the water when the sun hits it, true beauty.

I hope I inspired you to try something new, or to pull a color pallet from something other than another card.

Thank you so much for sharing your time with me and checking out my blog today.

Have a beautiful day.
