Feather Cards

Today’s cards all feature the Fresh Squeezed Stamp Set, Tickle My Fancy.  I actually won this set from a fun contest around Christmas <—The challenge was to fill in the blank for the funniest “Dear Santa” letter Winking smile

Here is a great way to state something powerful, and let the stamps speak.  The cloud background is an Impression Obsession stamp, it covers such a large area!  The feather is stamped and fussy cut, with a simple but strong sentiment from the set.

A fun twist and attempt to make this card more masculine.  The colorful panel in the back is actually a piece of sticky back canvas sprayed with various colors of Dylusions spray ink.

This card (photo obviously taken at night) uses one of my latest favorite techniques.  The two strips that anchor the peacock feathers are two thinly cut pieces of Sook-Wang sticky sheet.  They are burnished with Glitter Ritz and then colored with Copics and blended.  For more on how to do that, go here.

Sympathy cards are always difficult, but much easier to make ahead of time before you need them.  This one is going in a custom set one of my coworkers ordered from me.  The bottom panel is an embossing folder gone through my Texture Boutique. It was then rubbed with Peacock Feather Distress Ink.  The top peacock feather and sentiment give some balance to the business on the bottom, and a aqua colored bow ties it all together.

And now for something completely different!  This card uses a medallion image from a W+9 set to create a dream catcher.  It’s popped up over a panel of actual feathers.  Little beads and a hand written sentiment complete this unique card.

Thanks for the visit, hope you have a beautiful day!
