Four Feathers

FeathersOh my…I just LOVE clean and simple cards!  No..really I do!

As I was going through cards on Pinterest, I noticed many cards done in just grey and white and thought they were just so striking so I had this idea to do one using the Four Feathers set.  All I can say…LOVE IT!!!  And let me tell you…it was just SOOOO easy to do!

Here’s the details…

  • Basic Grey – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Basic Grey – 3 3/8 x 4 1/4.  Stamp large feather and greeting using Versamark and white emboss.  Layer onto Whisper White 3 1/2 x 4 1/4 then add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp small leaf using Versamark on Basic Grey and white emboss.  Cut out and add to card front.
  • Tie White/Basic Grey Baker’s Twine into Basic Metal Button and add to card front using glue dot.

Fall Fest

IC456I haven’t done an inspiration challenge for a couple weeks over on SCS but when I saw this inspiration piece…well..quick frankly…I was INSPIRED!

What I loved about the inspiration piece I just love the simple colors (black, white, tangerine) and since I’ve been LOVIN’ the Fall Fest set … it was ‘match made in heaven!  LOL!!!

I thought the Back to Black dsp would provide the ‘pattern’ seen in the vases and then the tangerine perfect for the pop of color!

Here’s the details -

  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 11 folded
  • Basic Black – 3 1/2 x 4, add to card front
  • Tangerine Tango – 1 1/2 x 3 1/3, punch with scallop edge punch and add to card front
  • Stamp greeting using Basic Black
  • White print – 2 3/4 x 4 and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Black print (backside of white print) – 5/8 x 4 1/4.  Cut into banner and add to card front
  • Stamp large pumpkin in Tangerine Tango and Basic Black – add to card front using dimensionals
