Inspired by the sample on page 147 of the catalog and the birthday gifts my sister made for her friends, this personalized stationary kit is fabulous. I chose the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper as a jumping off point. The paper dictated the colors I used: Pacific Point and More Mustard. It’s a vibrant palette, don’t you think?

I stamped the peacock from the Stampin’ Up! World Treasures stamp set in Pacific Point and colored in some feathers with my Many Marvelous Markers. Now here’s the fun part, which is really hard to detect in the photos. After cropping the peacock out with the Labels Collection Framelit, I covered the stamped and colored label with Shimmer Paint using a sponge daubers. It gives it such soft, classy sparkle.
I stamped the peacock again, cut out the body and adhered that with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I adhered the peacock lable to a larger label cut from Pacific Point cardstock. Stampin’ Up!’s coordinating papers and inks makes crafting so satisfying – you always get great results because it matches!
The interior has a pocket for holding stationary and envelopes. I used the Scallop Border Ribbon Punch to finish off the edge of my pocket. You’ll notice that I didn’t plan ahead correctly and I cut my paper so that my design is sideways. Don’t make the same mistake I did – double check your design orientation before you cut! What’s the saying? “Measure twice, cut once.” I should have checked twice and then cut.
Above is a close up of the stationary. I used creamy, lightweight paper cut in half and stamped in Pacific Point with a Monogram Stamp to create the stationary. The matching envelopes are Very Vanilla envelopes stamped with the flower from the same World Treasures stamp set as the peacock.
Below is a picture of the back, layered with the matching More Mustard cardstock. The cardstock layer adds sturdiness and also covers the end of the Victorian Crochet Lace ties.
These stationary sets are great gifts for friends for birthdays or Christmas. Include a Personalized stamp with the matching stamp pad and it’s a gift they will enjoy for a very long time.
