Hi everyone, We have had a lot of rain the last few days. its cool today but but no rain. Today's card was inspired by a 6x6 feather stencil I got the other day. The stencil is called mini 4 feathers. The card base is neenah cs cut at 10 x 7. The layer is 6.75 x 4.75 with the edges distressed with  Tim Holts faded jeans distressed ink. The background was stamped with SU gorgeous grunge. The feathers were colored using a sponge and the distressed inks. I added a bow from my stash. The sentiment is from the stamp set called fly free by Kaiser Craft. It needed a bit more interest so I added some gold sequins. I hope you have enjoyed seeing my creation for today. I will add this card into this challenge. 

Stamps - SU gorgeous grunge, Kaiser Craft - fly free
Paper- neenah card stock

Swallowtail Dream

This is my second post for World card making day. The card base a 5 x 7 card using neenah cs. I stamped my card onto neenah cs using the SU swallowtail stamp. The ink is pacific point. I then put the card into a box and used my DIY alcohol blue ink and sprayed it over the whole card and image. I then used perfect pearls mist called pearls and glimmer. It really looks gorgeous. I stamped  a swirl using SU Priceless set and the sentiment is Inkadinkado floral inspiration stamp. I took a strip of neenah cs and used an embossing folder for the right side of the card. I added pacific point over the the raised area to bring the card together. I then added a decorative trim that I had in my stash and added pacific point cs layered onto the card base. I added the front of the card and it looks very pretty in real life.  The sparkle and shine just doesn't show in the photos. I will add this card into

Happy card making day to everyone. I went to a card class today and made some cards. I didn't take the right glue so I have to finish them at home. This is not one of the cards made in class. It was so much fun. I will go to the class next Oct too. 

The base of his card is 5x7 and I used neenah cs.  I made a sketch template in word for the background layout 4.75 x 6.75 and printed it onto neenah cs. On each of the squares I used lots of post it note to cover up the squares.  Then I could use distress ink linen sponging in each of the squares. Before I removed the post its I took my stamp and stamped before moving on to the next square. The stamp set I used is Inkadinkadoo Mind Scape. The images were inked with memento black and SU old olive. I added a SU old olive ribbon and tied a knot. On the inside of the card I added a second generation stamp of the butterfly. The card took me quite awhile to do but I am pleased with the results. I am hoping the next one will be faster.  I will add my card into this challenge.
