Royal Peacock stamp set is an example of my fascination with stamping. It is not so much the end product (which is a great benefit, by the way) but the process that I enjoy so much. I have played with the image on various papers and with several mediums. Generally, the color combinations have been similar in order to take advantage of the coordinating suite of products that accompany Royal Peacock. This particular card is being used to showcase the coordinating dies, thus, my Royal Peacock Die-namics. The Sisterhood of Crafters blog has a new challenge by our Sis-tah Terri that starts today. It is all about the use of dies and its “die-namic effect” to our finished handmade cards. So, please pull out your favorite dies (or something brand new!) and come play along with us!

Additional Notes for Royal Peacock Die-namics
- I did not use the second step peacock body image on the front card panel.
- The inside sentiment panel does contain a clear embossed watermark image of the second step peacock image as well as the plume image.
- Note to self: Using the Xyron adhesive machine for a die-cut containing inside intricate cuts is not a good idea!
- Lessen the Big Shot sandwich pressure when using foil paper with the Beads and Baubles embossing folder to avoid cuts in foil.
