Feathers WM

I love the new Fancy Feathers stamp & die set that came out with this release!  I wanted to try to do something elegant with the set first.  I started with the Cover Up Die: Pieced Chevron.  I put a piece of scotch tape down the back of each strip and then poked out the pieces that I wanted to replace with the gold glitter paper.  This made it super easy to only take out the pieces I wanted to.  Tip:  I marked an "x" on each piece I wanted to replace so that I could see my pattern before I removed the pieces.

Feather Closeup Side WM


I die cut the feathers out of vellum and then embossed them in white & gold.  I embossed the sentiment (don't you just love that font!?) in black (and added some glitter embossing powder on top too!) onto another piece of vellum that had been die cut using the new Pinking Edge Sentiment Flag Set dies.  I attached the feathers to the flag and then added black enamel dots.

I love that this feather set gives you both solid feathers and outline feathers in a variety of different sizes and shapes!




I'll have more to share with you tomorrow & Wednesday so be sure to stop back by!
