It's Peacock Day!

Today is the day!

I am finally going to share the peacock with you!

I know you've all been waiting for it, but I wanted to save my best project for last! Sorry!

I have to admit that I am extremely proud of this project! Maybe a little too much, but I can't help it. It just makes me giddy.

This was actually my 1st project of the 8, that I created with the Flower Patch bundle.

How did I come up with the idea? Good question! I don't really know... I was playing and layering my stamp images, when I started thinking of a peacock feather... (don't ask me how, even I don't get my brain sometimes!) Then it took off from there... I realized the framelits would work perfectly for the peacock body, and the tiny flower stem stamp, could be its head feathers. O-mi-goodness, I was a kid in a candy store and I couldn't wait to bring it to life!

Beyond popular believe, this isn't a card! It's actually designed in a frame! A Paper Pumpkin frame to be exact -April's Paper Pumpkin! It was the perfect size for my little peacock!

I decided to save everyone a TON of reading!

I made a little diagram! (click on it for a larger view!)

On it, I've shown you what components of the Flower Patch bundle I used, and for what! I hope you enjoy this method of explaining.

Well, thank you for enduring my 8 posts of Flower Patch projects and for all of your lovely comments over on the SCT blog. If you haven't already, make sure to head over to the SCT blog and leave a comment for a chance to win the Flower Patch Bundle for yourself! How fun would that be!?!

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!

  5. hi martha, i am in awe of your creations here & on the sct site. i initially passed over this set when i 1st saw it in the catalog, but you have inspired me & it's now on my wish list (at the top!).

    i can't wait to make the fish with my 5-yr old granddaughter & the peacock is a real work of art! tfs your creativity with all of us ~ smiles, karen ;-)

    btw...i wanted to make a comment on the sct site for the 7/31 giveaway but it says that comments are closed. thought you might want to know ;-)

  6. thank you so much for this. I really love your peacock and you are so nice to share how to make it with us. I had stamped the feathers just guessing the colours but now I am off to cut them out and do the rest of him.

  7. I love this peacock! I saved it years ago on Pinterest & promised myself I was going to save up money so I could buy all the supplies needed (over time, money has always been really tight for us) & that I would try to recreate it (which is a big deal for me because, due to years of undiagnosed learning disabilities, I’ve always been incredibly anxious about learning/trying new things which ultimately leads me to me telling myself “don’t bother trying, you’ll just fail”)

    Well, I’ve finally collected all the supplies & over the last few days have been slowly putting together my own peacock & I’m beyond excited & proud! I realize it’s been years since you posted this but I was hoping you could share what size picture frame you used to “frame” your peacock! Any help/advice would be welcomed & greatly appreciated!

    Thank you so much for not only the inspiration but also for the beautifully written, easy to understand/follow (for the most part) directions (I have struggled with the peacock’s head & the “tear drop shaped” eyes for hours so if you have any wisdom to share regarding those pieces, again, I’d be incredibly grateful!) - thanks to your creative project, I feel inspired to at least try & recreate others amazing projects! Hope you & your family are happy & healthy! 💗
