Fine Feathers!

Hello everyone,

I just held my retirement workshop yesterday and I have one of the cards to share. I used my most favourite stamp set that is retiring from the Stampin’ Up! catalogue this year, Fine Feathers. I definitely didn’t get enough use of this set, so I might just hang onto it for hobby use.

Fine Feathers

There is a lot going on on this card, but I think well worth it. After creating a circle mask with the circle framelits, I stamped the Hardwood background, followed by gold embossing the feathers. I sponged with Crumb Cake ink and then splattered the background with Calypso Coral and Whipser White.

The sentiment piece consists of Burlap ribbon, Modern Medley DSP, paper doily, Very Vintage Designer Buttons, Vellum clear embossed stamped feathers, Linen Thread, the Oh, Hello stamp set, punched with the decorative label. All this on the base of Naturals White card stock. I told you there is a lot going on, right?!

I love how this one turned out. I must say there are few of its sisters sitting in the bin all crumpled up. We won’t go there……all I’ll say is I’m rusty.

The girls enjoyed making this one, which was good news. I love working them hard. LOL!

Thanks for dropping by!

Hello Sweet Friend!

Hello everyone,

I have just recently had some time to sit down and make cards that are my very own creation. I love it when I have enough artistic inspiration to come up with something of my own. It has been a very dry spell on the card making front so far this year and this was a very welcome change. I have created other cards but they were CASE’s of other people’s beautiful work and I will put them up here on my blog in due course to share with you all.

I am so in love with the Fine Feathers stamp set and have been itching to create something “good” with it. I stress the word good because I have struggled with this set since I bought it. I have made a couple of cards with the set, but they will never see the light of day on my blog! LOL. Even though this set is not  predominate on this card it is one of the main elements.
