For the Inspiration Challenge (IC699), we are headed to At Home. They have a ton of lovely things & I was drawn to THIS picture. 

The picture also made me think of some gold tipped white feathers I saw in a craft store a couple of years ago. For the first couple I did, I stamped, gold embossed, fussy cut then swiped the gold ink across the tips & dipped them in the gold powder. They didn’t look quite right to me. So on the rest, after I cut them out, I cut little notches in the tips before inking & dipping. I think that made all the difference. On the white bg, I gold embossed the greeting &  used the Splatter Bg just in some areas. I had these mirror gold square frames left from another project,  so I used them to add a little interest.

Here’s the inside…everything was gold embossed, as well, & I added a couple of unused feathers from the front.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is for the 2 Monday Challenges on Splitcoast…CAS527 (humor) & TLC736 (acrylic block stamping). 

For my acrylic block stamped bg, I pressed the Kpad onto the block & spritzed w/ water. I thought it needed a little contrast, so I added a narrow black frame, then used my Misti to stamp the solid branch a few times. The greeting is a put together mix of 2 greetings. For the silly bird image, I drew the stripes then colored & fussy cut. Since this bird looks pretty rotund to me, I thought the greeting fit. I also contend his/her butt makes him/her look big..not the stripes, lol.

Here’s the inside & below it the Copics I used on the silly bird.

Congrats to the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS634)! I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & the greeting in the center, but I used a different greeting & made my background instead of using designer paper.
I stamped the pretty feathers, colored them & fussy cut them. The  greeting was stamped on a fancy label & attached to a larger, dk green panel. For the bg, I brayered the inside of a feather embossing folder then embossed a piece of a white card stock. I actually did both sides..the other side was mostly white w/ colored feathers. I liked this side better, so there you go.

Here’s a look at the inside.
