Four Feathers

Yea! This is a new stamp set and framelit for the upcoming Holiday Catalog called Four Feathers. I'm hoping that my stamping friends on my mailing list will get a copy of the new catalog this week! Four feathers are exactly the four stamps that are in the set and I'm looking forward to finding lots of ways to use and arrange them.  And with the framelits, there's no cutting so it's quick!

Stamp sets - Four Feathers, Birthday Greeting (retired)
Cardstock - Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White
Ink - Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Crushed Curry, Strawberry Slush
Accessories - Big Shot, Feathers Framelits Die, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Linen Thread, Stampin' Dimensionals

The large feathers are just stamped on the Whisper White, The small feathers are stamped on Whisper White and cut out using the Feathers Framelits Die, then arranged together and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I tied a little bow with Linen Thread and attached it with a rolled Glue Dot.

Another Bloom for You and World Traveler #2

I made a different version of the Bloom for You card I did earlier in the week. I searched for some retired DSP that would work well with the Bloom for You flowers to make for my nursing home project. Here is what the ladies made today.

I have been working on some cards for my Card Club group which meets tomorrow and I was trying to come up with some masculine cards. I went back to the World Map and Traveler sets and used the steam ship again. I really like the Smoky Slate and Midnight Muse together but I used up the last of my Midnight Muse on this card. I think it will look just as nice with Night of Navy (or Basic Black).

Cardstock - Midnight Muse (retired), Smoky Slate, Whisper White
Ink - Midnight Muse, Smoky Slate
Accessories - Big Shot, Circles Framelits, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Small oval punch, Stampin' Sponge, Neutrals Candy Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals

Bloom with Hope

Today's card has a flower from Bloom with Hope stamped and colored with Blendabilities on a masked En Francais background. I took a piece of copy paper, the same size as the 5" x 3 3/4" cardstock and cut out an oval in the center, using the Ovals Framelits. I used this as a mask and placed it on the same sized cardstock. Then I stamped En Francais in Smoky Slate. I then stamped the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Blendabilities. You can use any color you like. I distressed the edges of the smaller cardstock and inked the edges with Smoky Slate. This would be an easy card to make for any occasion.

Stamp sets - Bloom with Hope, Teeny Tiny Wishes, En Francais (retired)
Cardstock - Naturals White
Ink - Smoky Slate, Memento Tuxedo Black, Blendabilities (Calypso Coral or Cherry Cobbler are the two I used)
Accessories - Distressing tool, Very Vanilla Seam Binding, Small and large oval punches, Stampin' sponge, Stampin' Dimensionals -  Big Shot and Ovals Framelits for the mask

Bloom for You

Today's card uses the stamp set Bloom for You which coordinates with the punch Fun Flower. I used the same flower stamp and punch to make the leaves. I just stamped them in Mossy Meadow on Mossy Meadow cardstock and cut the petals off (from the middle) and glued them on the back of the flower. Lots of colors and lots of options using all your different designer papers (that I know you all have!! lots of !!).

Cardstock - Hello Honey, Whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar, Lullaby Designer Series Paper
Ink - Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, Baked Brown Sugar
