Feathers (New Product Blog Hop)

Welcome to our New Product Blog Hop, brought to you by the same ladies who participate in the monthly Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop.  To show how versatile they are, this card uses the same two stamp sets which are used in my "A Feather Wish" blog post.  The different colors and papers create completely different looks. 

If you arrived here from Wendy's 'My Scrapbooking Blog,' you are hopping through our circle of more than 20 Close To My Heart consultants sharing their projects using new papers, stamps, and other produced just introduced in the CTMH Spring/Summer Idea Book

Soft colors in the Balloon Ride papers create a soothing look.  Two of the images in the Feathers stamp set were each inked with Crystal Blue and then 'rolled' in Saddle ink for some dimension.  A masking technique was used to create the illusion that one feather is behind the other.   

A two-part sentiment in the Belated Birthday stamp set is used on the front of the card and completed on the inside. 

Please visit the 'HeatherJaneDesign' blog to continue along our Blog Hop featuring new products in the Spring/Summer Idea Book

  1. Very nice. I love how versatile Balloon Ride is.
    Who would have thought you could pair it with jute?

  2. Beautiful! I love the feather stamp set. Will have to try the rock 'n' roll technique as I love the look of the two colours you have used. Thanks for sharing

    1. Thanks, Doreen. Rock 'n Roll technique is great for all sorts of solid stamps - flowers, snowflakes, trees.

  3. So pretty! I love this and your last card.

    1. Thanks Jayma. It has been fun playing with all the new products this month.

  4. Those feathers look great with Balloon Ride! Great card!

  5. Great combination of the stamped feather and the Balloon Ride papers! TFS!
