{Spotlight Project} Cornelia Creates a Card with the Trendy Feathers Set

Hi, it's Cornelia here today playing with the Vignette: Trendy Feathers set from STAMPlorations!

And here's how this card came together:


I die cut the Poppy fluffy feather from white cardstock.

Inked up the feathers and stamped around the opening, masking off the top part.

I stamped the sentiment onto the die cut, cut 5 more feathers and glued them together. Still needed more definition so I sponged around the edges.

I assembled the card and added a silk ribbon to the feather and some sequins.

You like it? I do. Now in retrospect you may ask why I bothered cutting out the feather first? Well, because I originally had something else in mind, but then things took its own course and that was what I ended up with.... I usually have a vague idea of what I'm going to do and then I see where it takes me.

How do you make your cards? More structured? I'd be interested to know. Much fun to combine stamping with die cutting. I am sure you all know this already....
Have a great day and thanks for visiting us today.



  1. Cornelia...I'm swooning over the cluster of feathers you've designed here - and that's speaking volumes of how lovely I consider your card, as swoons are usually induced by butterflies! These feathers - and the way you've showcased them in a stamped+diecut combination - nothing short of stunning!! Gorgeous! Adding to my 'must try' list!


We love hearing from fellow crafters! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
