Altenew Golden Feather

I keep seeing people saying this online, "Cards are the new hugs" and it makes sense. We limit ourselves from physically closeness but somehow getting a card in the mail can make you feel closer to them. 

In an effort to learn to use the products I have in this shop, I have started to explore using stamps, craft dies, the Gemini Jr die cutting machine, and various tools to color in the stamped images.

I am planning to use this space to keep a sort of running log of what I'm creating and how I created it. I'll link all the products (of course) and would love it if you would drop me a comment if you like what I share! 

This card was made using the Golden Feather stamp set by Altenew and a watercolor background on Ranger Watercolor paper. This is a very versatile set because it comes with three word stamps that are a nice big size, perfect for the front of a card. There is a coordinating die but I did not use it this time.

I made this card for a friend who had surprise surgery because I knew she likes feathers and the color purple. It was a good chance to stretch myself beyond my usual comfort zone of "throw paint on paper" and "use all the blues."


You can see more of my daily adventures on my Instagram account or our Facebook Page. I'd love to hear your thoughts about this card!
