Recently have been making some mixed media cards for females… To us, it seems as if mixed media has to be brown, full of gears & challenging… Well, how about a fresh approach to mixed media using a few of your favorite things? That could be colors, a die, a stamp…. We chose shimmery Nuvo Mousse (Shocking!) & to use an embossing folder for a twist. There will be another card using the same supplies with an entirely different look! ~Round 2 coming very soon & a couple things for Dad!~

FIRST: HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND! A simple thank you never really cuts it to family & friends of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. But, that is what we’d like to really take this chance to do. We are thinking of you and praying for all you!!!
Yes, we really do put names in a hat and draw from it! This is so FUN but a bit tough because we wish all of you could win, frankly!
THE WINNER IS: Ms. Denise Bryant!!! Congratulations from both pf us @ Platinum Peacock!!! Please e mail us, Denise: email@example.com with your address!
Good news for those of you who would still like to enter for a chance to win a sold-out Love from Lizi May card kit. We are extending the contest until 6pm EST on 5/28. To enter just subscribe to the Platinum Peacock YouTube channel or follow this blog. Good luck to all! Stay crafty. my friends! Never tire of saying that, just don’t always have time in videos! LoL It’s always more important to us that things come across as simply and easily as possible… Even if we delete our 1st 10 cards video because there was a tiny section where the sound didn’t mute. Oh well, we lost views but made the video better by not making you jump out of your chair! So stay crafty, my friends! SO glad we draw & don’t pick the winner ourselves because it’d be too hard! 🙂
- Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are thinking about adding a few extra days to allow as many people as possible to enter. We understand that it’s 1 thing to see an unboxing video & quite different seeing finished projects… We’d LOVE to know what you think!
- How about so female cards with this kit? They were sketched, just wanted to get the 10 cards video up again AND show you that you don’t have to know everything about card making to enjoy this kit!
- You can leave a comment on FB, twitter, or e mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. –THANK YOU for your subscriptions, kind words & understanding! GOOD LUCK!–
Wow, this was a fun and different (in a good way!) kit to work with! As it has been pouring down rain here in the Mid West, we’ve been crafting up a storm with ease. The May 2017 kit is really great because you don’t have to think too much! You can just craft and do as much or little as you’d like! Making more simple cards can be hard for me because I don’t want them to be too simple. (Lizi has helped me lighten up on that!) Making cards for men is a common sore spot for card makers of any kind – we’ve got you covered with ideas, videos, pics AND A GIVEWAWAY for new subscriptions to the blog &/or our YouTube Channel! (No limit per household on per entries or devices!) We’ll draw a random subscriber – a BIG THANKS to Lizi for her kindness to make this possible!!!! Check Out Our Video link or on YouTube!
Nuvo Drops Used: Sugared Almond (Included in Kit), Midnight Blue, Copper Penny and Dandelion Yellow. Embossing powder: Cool Jade
If you missed the 2017 May Kit from The Original Love from Lizi, all is not lost! The kit is honestly one of Lizi’s best with touches of vellum, blue foiling with a vintage feel. Really great for men & absolutely great for women too! We’ll link an unboxing video at the bottom of this post to show all of the goods that will come to you. Any add-on items are non applicable since they’re sold out, too! The kit is FULL of Nuvo drops, patterned papers, card bases, etc. It’s so fun that it took everything in us NOT to keep it! 🙂 ‘Tis a lot of fun to giveaway so, want to win this lovely kit, valued at 25 pounds (about 32 bucks)? SUBSCRIBE!
HOW TO WIN: Subscribe to PlatinumPeacock’s YouTube Channel (click here ) or follow our blog (click the follow button in the lower right hand corner of this screen) to enter for a chance to win.

We have 5 very different and unique cards – from clean and simple, classic and even modern chic… There’s a card design for many occasions AND almost everything came from our stash! DO NOT FORGET there will be an announcement about our Love from Lizi Kit Giveaway on 5/15/2017! We have the honor of giving away an entire SOLD OUT kit from Love from Lizi, so stay tunned!
Happy Mother’s Day from the Platinum Peacock Team!
We wanted to kick things up a notch! We also wanted to use a familiar technique, yet still new & fresh! Had requests for budget friendly cards & optimizing stash. “Crash the Stash” can absolutely be chic! Hope you agree! By the way, we think you could use this card for many occasions!
