Feathers Stamps

I bought this lovely little feathers stamp set a while ago and promptly lost it, so was so delighted when it turned up again in my stash lol! Does that happen to you too? I think it's something to do with quantum mechanics. Stuff is in two places at once and you just can't see it, then it suddenly resolves into one position and you find it again :-) So, I made the background for this card using colours to match the gorgeous ribbon, and the rest of the card just fell into place.

"Happy Birthday"

The background is white card inked with Seedless Preserves and overstamped in Chipped Sapphire. Inks are used to edge all the diecuts.


The stickpins are made with beads to match the background colours, and fixed into place behind the bow with a big dollop of Pinflair glue to protect the points.


The flowers are diecut using the Spellbinders Carnation Creations dies; each of the diecuts is overstamped with the feathers stamp  and some of the edges are also decorated with a chipped sapphire distress marker. Tiny seed beads are added to the centre of each flower to match the stickpins.


  1. I love this, maddy! Gorgeous colors and beautifully stamped too. I love the way you matched the ribbon and pins perfectly with the inks. Very elegant and beautiful x
