Good morning! How is everyone this fine Saturday? The weather is supposed to be nice here today so I am going to have to go for a ride in the convertible later. I also have to start on my brother and his fiancé’s invitations. It’s going to be another crafty weekend! Today’s card is for this weeks Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week we have a color Challenge…
I have been wanting to use the Fine Feathers Stamp Set and thought this would be a good color combination to take a first run with it. The base of the card is Crumb Cake Card Stock. I took a piece of Cherry Cobbler and embossed it with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It’s backed with a piece of Island Indigo Card Stock and adhered to the card with SNAIL. I stamped the feathers from the Fine Feathers Stamp Set in Island Indigo and cut them out with my Paper Snips. They are adhered to the chevron piece with SNAIL. I stamped the bird from the Nature Walk Stamp Set in Crumb cake and cut him out With my Paper Snips and darkened his eye with the Crumb Cake Stampin Write Marker and adhered him to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Sweet Essentials Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo and backed with a piece of Cherry Cobbler. The long feather is also adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the detail in the Fine Feather Stamps and the chevrons mimic the v’s in the feathers. I hope that you are inspired by this weeks Create with Connie and Mary card and that you have a great Saturday. Thank you for checking in and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Um, I think you forgot something! Where’s the card? LOL
Never mind – it didn’t show up for me until after I posted my comment! Jeesh!
Nope, you were right, I forgot to add the card! LOL! Thanks!
I really like how the Crumb Cake makes the other two colors pop. And wow, what patience with the fussy cutting! Good luck with our Scavenger Hunt this week and thanks for playing Create with Connie and Mary!
Thank you Debbie! I find the fussy cutting very relaxing! 🙂
Oh I do also but most of my customers hate it!
I don’t know a lot of people that do like it. It’s nice to know I’not alone! 🙂
Great job on the color challenge. I love how you combined the bird from one set with the feather set! Great job making those feathers stand out with some precision cutting. Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge this week!
Thank you Lisa! Fine Feathers and Nature Walk go together great!
