Hello friends. It's been a loooooong 3 months since Michele
and I have played cards together, and even though we only live an hour apart, we do have to play by Winters rules! Grrrrrr! But, when we do finally get together, it's always the best time!!
We both had different stamps/dies of each others that we wanted to play with, but decided that Papertrey Inks's Feathered Friends #19 was the common denominator this time around, so here's what I came up with using this sweet & chubby little feathered friend!!
Michele gifted me the sweet little frame from Altenew
, and I layered two of them together for a bit of dimension on top of a panel that I embossed with SU!'s Subtle
embossing folder. My little Feathered Friend #19
was stamped in shades of blues, and then also layered up for even more dimension.
My sentiment is a Gina K sentiment strip from her last kit, and I also added a few Rainstones (PTI) to finish off this CAS card.
Michele brought her PFS's Folk Art Print stencils, and I ink blended a couple up...this one in my favorite greens (SU!'s Evening Evergreen & Soft Succulent) and then pinks and oranges (Gina K). I added a stacked scalloped frame die (PFS), and then another one of those ADORABLE birds stamped in the pinks and oranges to match my background.
My gold embossed sentiment is also from PFS and finished off this colorful card quite nicely! (Although you can't see it, I also added WOS to the little birds feathers!)
Michele had made a card awhile back using a Lisa Horton embossing folder (Foxglove) that I absolutely fell in love with, so she brought that along for me to play with! I tried inking up the inside of the folder first, but wasn't happy with the look, so I just embossed and then added a very light inking with blender brushes...purple and green. The color is so subtle, but I wanted the beautiful embossed texture to be the star of the card!!
I finished this card with a die cut sentiment from Memory Box (Posh Script Thank You) that I popped up on foam strips, and a prisma foiled butterfly (PFS's Small Butterflies) that I stenciled with a light and darker purple to coordinate with the Foxgloves.
I have a couple other cards that are works in progress, and I'll share those at a later date. I can hardly wait to see what Michele
has made with some of my goodies and how she used that sweet and chubby little bird too! Thank you, thank you Michele for another wonderful play day...I still don't get out too much, so these play days and your friendship mean the world to me!! And of course you sharing your goodies with me too! Friends...one of Gods greatest gifts!! :0)
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
