Simon Says Stamp | Funny Pretend Peacock Card. Video + Blog Hop + Giveaway

I can’t seem to stop making funny cards lately. They are just so darn cute and irresistible! Googly eyes cards, funny sentiment cards, wobble spring cards, you name it! Here’s my latest funny project – a pretend peacock card with an addictive-to-use wobble spring.

VIDEO TUTORIAL

I couldn’t resist filming a quick video showing how to create this project (although it ended up being not so short and quick). I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it. Watch it below or on my Youtube channel:

CARD DETAILS

I love Simon’s latest mandala 6×6 cling background stamps. So unique, so bold, so different. They are great for classic and elegant projects, they would be fantastic for a set of wedding invitations or save the date cards, but I decided to use them in a slightly different way.

As I was looking at these, a portion of Emma’s background reminded me of a peacock’s tail. I could instantly envision a beautiful teal-blue-green peacock standing on my card with its tail feathers graciously spread across the project.

I grabbed a little birdy image from the Cuddly Critter Accessories stamp set and stamped him using Simon’s Intense Black ink. Using my Copic markers I colored both images using BG18, BG13, BG32, YG03, B29 and B05. 

I am listing my most favorite Copic Marker Color Combos here in case you are looking for some beginner suggestions.

I cut both images out, bird – using a coordinating die and “tail” using scissors. I also stamped Emma design onto a 4 x 5 1/4″ white cardstock panel using Simon’s Fog ink and adhered my pretend peacock using wobble spring. You could simply foam mount the bird on top, but I went for an extra dose of humor here and used wobble spring instead.

I hope you always find a reason to smile” is the sentiment I picked for this project and I think it works out so well. I foam mounted my panel onto an A2 top folding card base made out of Fog cardstock and embellished the cards using Simon’s sequins and a few clear drops.

    1. Love that you can look at an image and pick out particular portions to create something unique. What a great way to stretch supplies! Your little peacock (shh, I won’t tell!) Is adorable & it’s versatility from the elegant gatefold card says a lot about your creativity. Thanks for the inspiration!!

    1. Brilliant idea and SO cute! I love seeing how other cardmakers find really different uses for their stamps.

    1. Love your ideas you always share with us! Thanks for being on the blog hop!!

    1. I have to say, when I first saw the card, I thought you had used a peacock stamp. When I saw the video I was amazed how you used a background stamp and a bird to make the peacock. You are so creative! And adding the wobbler thing behind it is simply genius! Beautiful card! Thanks for sharing!

    1. What Agreat variety of cards.So many styles with this release.You inspire me.

    1. Loved all of your cards! The little peacock was precious. I loved the way you stamped the background stamp on the vellum and embossed it. I would have never been brave enough to attempt such a big pattern on vellum. Thanks for sharing your cards.

    1. Cute & clever! I have a bunch of those mini wobbles, so I’ll have to look at my stamps differently to see if I can come up with something fun like this!

    1. I love your peacock card!! All of them are beautiful but the peacock card is my favorite ❤

    1. I love your peacock card, it is so adorable!! You are the queen of “out of the box” supply use!!! I love your ideas and all your card, they are always so cute and stunning!!
      Your videos are awesome and I look forward to seeing more of them!!
      Thank you so much for all the inspiration!!

    1. I enjoyed watching your card come together. Your peacock turned out adorable with the wobble spring! Creative & fun!

    1. I just discovered your blog through an email I got from SSS, and I’m so glad! I’m relatively new to crafting and cardmaking, but you make it seem so easy to create cards on your own with professional-looking results…as long as you have the right supplies/tools! Thank you so much for sharing your YouTube videos on how you do it! And also for letting us know exactly which materials/supplies you used. It’s most helpful for a beginner like me!

      I especially love this little peacock and the creative way you came up with it. It inspires me to try to start thinking outside the box, too! I’m now looking at what stamps, stencils and supplies I already have to see which ones I might put together to make something new and make the most out of what’s already in my craft box(es)!

      Thank you!
