With His Feathers

Card Making Ideas using Waltzingmouse Stamps Fine Feathers and Spellbinders Mystical Embrace and Divine Eloquence
Good morning blog friends.  Don’t forget I have some blog candy over on my post of March 1st  – you can still enter until midnight on March 4th.  In the mean time I have a card to share with some feathery goodness using the Fine Feathers set from Waltzingmouse Stamps, I’m also over on the Waltzingmouse Inspiration blog today.   Feathers are so trendy right now.   I’ve seen lots of clean and simple card with feathers. As I sat down to arrange, I wanted to see if I could take the feathers and glam them up with layers and pearls.WRBF-4158-2014
I reached over and pulled the Fine Feathers Cut Files because I’m just no good at fussy cutting.  Second to the cream color I love to create with is the mocha reminiscent of a great cup of coffee – it’s a tad bit dressier than kraft paper.  By cutting the feathers and sentiments and nestling them on a mocha background, they pop off the page.   On my 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ card base I layered Spellbinders 5 x 7 Mystical Embrace followed by Spellbinders A2 Divine Eloquence.  It made an excellent backdrop for my stamped and cut feathers and sentiment.  I finished up by adding a bow and some pearls. I get my tiny pearls from Hobby Lobby and was able to just pull off one entire line and run them along the vein of the feather for a cool embellishment.

  • Mary MacMarch 3, 2014 - 10:08 am

    Truly beautiful. I learned something new today – ‘Becca COULD make a silk purse out of a pig’s ear’. Mind you that is not to detract in any way from the lovely feather stamps but how much of a challenge would they be for a lot of people?ReplyCancel

    Good evening Becca,
    What a beautiful card in beautiful colours. I love the soft mocca colour with cream, so elegant and sophisticated in look and design. The mystical embrace die is on my need list as i think it is the most beautiful brought out by spellbinders this year, but just out of my budget at the moment, so back to dreaming. Thank you for the inspiration Becca,
    Love and crafty hugs

    Becca I love your card it’s so gentle and serene. I made a comment right after you posted, but I don’t see it on here now. I checked WMS (maybe I left it there), but it wasn’t there either. Anyway, I can’t seem to find the paper you reference with this card – mocha, or is it neenah putty? Either way, I can’t find either – would you be kind enough to let us know where to find this paper? Thanks Becca!ReplyCancel
