Trendy Feathers....

Feather Thank You

Hey!

Happy Monday! I'm zooming by today to let you know that I have a little exciting post on the Paper Crafter's Library as their Featured Designer. Be sure to check it out if you wanna see a project that I've not shared on here yet! :)

Today's card is one I've shared over there too, and features some gorgeous, trendy feathers that I've cut using the Southwest cartridge and my Cricut Mini.

tips and tricks
  • If you're cramped for space and have to pack away your electronic cutter when you're not using it (like me!) plan ahead and cut in bulk.  I cut loads of these feathers, in various sizes, from white cardstock. They now sit on my desk and I can simply colour them with an alcohol marker to have coordinating embellishments on demand!
  • Heat embossing isn't only for stamped images. I tapped my embossing ink on the tips of these feathers and covered in gold embossing powder to give those trendy feathers more 'oomph'! :)
I hope you can pop across to the post if you have time...  :)

Right, I must dash as I've got day at work and I'm also about to start the His & Hers Online Card Class later on, so I better get prepared as it starts today! Cue lots of cards for the guys to be created this week (fingers crossed!)

Love, love it! I've recently started to read your blog from the beginning, because I like your style so much. It's interesting to see how your cards transformed over the years. :)
Now I'm heading over to see the other card mentioned above.
Oh, and I'm looking forward to the new OCC, too! Hoping to create lots of 'his' card for my stash. :)

Congrats on your guest post! I love the soft coloring on the back of the vellum on your bonus card, and the gold dipped look of these feathers is so fun!

gold tipped feathers? Oh yeah! What a great idea, Duchess! I'm determined to crack open my Cricut this summer and learn the basics :) Any chance Cricut would pay to have you come help me? ;)
