Feathers Three

Hello everyone,

Today's birthday card is a serene and neutral beauty.

The printed paper is Studio Calico Hashtagged layered on Stampin' Up Whisper White and Close To My Heart Heavenly Blue.  The images are Stampin' Up Four Feather stamped in Close To My Heart Juniper and Stampin' Up Pool Party and Lost Lagoon on Whisper White.  The images are die cut with Sizzix Feathers Framelits.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up Perfect Punches stamped in Juniper on Whisper White.

I love using these feather stamps and die cuts.  When they work, they are so beautiful.  When they don't work, it's just an exercise in frustration.  The MISTI was suppose to ensure the frustration levels would be eased but it didn't work as planned.  The problem is that the stamps are red rubber, not clear polymer.  It's easy to line up the stamp with the die cut when you can see through the stamp to ensure proper alignment.  Not so easy with red rubber.  I had one feather that worked well but the other two, I went old school by stamping then running through the Big Shot.  Lesson learnt.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
