You Are Fabulous!

Hello, crafty friends! It's Julie with you today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  I'm really excited to share today's card with you!  The Dies R Us Store has so many different manufacturer's dies for sale in it, and one that they have all the time now is Birch Press Design.  I am in love with these dies!!

Here's what I created using the 4 layers of the Regal Peacock die set:


Here's a picture of the supplies I used on this card.  Along with the Regal Peacock die set from Birch Press Design,  I also used a 'Fabulous' word die from Frantic Stamper, and a Birch Press Design stamp set called, "Just Because" (ordered during a special pre-sale event).

I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out what colors I thought I would use, then ended up changing my mind as I went along.  This picture shows what the dies look like, and what I thought I was going to use for the layers.  They ended up being a bit different than this in the end:

Here are the pieces once they've been die cut.  I have several pieces with different color options because I still wasn't sure which would look best with the background paper I had in mind:

Once I had them die cut, it was time to assemble that glorious peacock tail.  I used Scraperfect Best Glue Ever for all the layers except the top layer.  For that layer, I used Stick It Adhesive Sheets.

Here's the peacock  (still unsure of body color):

I wanted to add the words "You are"  to the "Fabulous" sentiment.  So, I only needed the first 2 words of the sentiment stamp I was using. I could have cut the stamp apart, but decided to mask it instead.  Here, you can see I covered the portion of the stamp I didn't want to use with tape.  Once I inked the stamp, I removed the tape, and could then stamp just the two words I wanted:


In the end, I thought the dark bodied peacock had the most contrast against the paper I used, so that's the one I used.  It took me a long time to decide!
