CCMC318 Four Feathers

It’s Thursday and time for the weekly challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!  It is a Color Challenge this week…hope it gets you inspired to make something great!




I thought right away of using my Four Feathers stamp set…it hadn’t been inked up yet!  But, I love that it has coordinating Framelits to match the feathers!  And feathers are REALLY hot right now in decorating…have you noticed them?

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Pool Party folded in half.
  • I added a 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Hello Honey!
  • On the 3 3/4 x 5 layer of Whisper White, I stamped the Dotty Angles image with Hello Honey ink.
  • Next I used It’s Your Birthday from Big News stamp set with Basic Gray ink.
  • I stamped two of the feathers in Four Feathers with Pool Party ink on Whisper White, then cut with the Feathers Framelits Dies.  I tied some Daffodil Delight Bakers Twine in a double bow and adhered it over the feathers.  They were popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Finally, I colored some Rhinestones with the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities Markers (darkest one) and added them to the front and the Exclamation Point!

I love the fun, whimsical look to this card and hope you enjoy it, too!

Love your card design and especially the colored diamonds – they really pull out the other blues in the feathers…!

I love the little polka dots with the feathers. Nice, simple backdrop without taking away from the details in the feathers!

Connie, just love this feather set & framelits and what you have done with them here! The cascading dots make such a great background for the feathers and sentiment! Super card!
