The Secret of Life...

Happy Early Monday!  And I do mean early! LOL

A "light as a feather" card...

STAMPS: Feathers-Tickle Me Fancy (Fresh Squeezed Stamps). Sentiment (StampinUp!)
PAPER: White and violet cardstock.
INK: Elderberry and Sweet Plum (Memento).
EXTRAS: Dark and light purple gems; label framelit die (Sizzix); pop dots.

I have been trying to use some of my newer products instead of the normal setting them in my basket and letting them acclimate for months before using them.  Feathers are very popular right now in the stamping world so naturally I "had" to have one or two.  So, I opted for about four in a set from Freshly Squeezed stamps.  Such an adorable combo of different feather styles!

I used the same feather stamp on this card, stamping it in two different shades of purple, randomly about the card base.  It's all purple for the monochromatic challenge at Crafty Cardmakers. Then I used another StampinUp! sentiment (one of those "acclimated" newbies) and inlayed it within the same label die.


Light and Feather Blessings!

Wow this is a stunner. I just love your feathers. I'm giggling at your sentiment, because it so matches you popping stuff to one side to 'use' later! We all do it. I always say I am addicted to the buying much more than the crafting.

Thanks for sharing this little beauty with us
