Hey Fancy Feathers!

Hi everybody! It's time to share a new card!

Unless you've been in a cave for the last 2 years (which if you have been, Welcome Back!) you know that birds are a huge trend right now. Seriously, if people don't like something now-a-days, they put a bird on it and it's fantastic! Owls, Crows, Bluebirds, Eagles, Penguins and of course Peacocks! When I first saw the Peacock stamp in the stamp set "World Treasures", I thought, "Holy Peacock!" It's quite large and intricate and I immediately needed it. People have done some really over-the-top things with this peacock. They've colored all the individual parts, cut out each feather and inked up the bird dramatically in different ways; if you are one of these people, power to you! I, however, wanted to use this stamp for Saturday Stampin'. When making 8 cards for only 10 dollars with limited time, the cards need to be simplified... this peacock doesn't really lend herself to being simplified. But I think I pulled it off okay ;) Let's look at the card:

Stamp Sets: World Treasures, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Elegant Eggplant, Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry
Ink: Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: 1" Circle Punch, Circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack

Come on, you're a little impressed, right? ;) Just kidding. So instead of making the stamp itself intricately inked and all sorts of colors, I decided to add this element in the different colored paper strips. There are 4 different colors of paper in this "tail"; Elegant Eggplant, Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz and Rich Razzleberry. I used a circle punch to create the little tail wing things (I don't know what you'd call them haha). I also used a circle punch to create the corners on the piece of Very Vanilla with the peacock on it, I wanted it to have a little something extra instead of just piece a rectangular piece. Overall I'm really happy with this card. I think it matches the uniqueness of the peacock stamps. Thanks for stopping by!

September 'Best Of'

I'm here to show you guys the September 'Best Of'. Honestly, Fall is my favorite time of year, I always long for the cool, crisp weather and the beautiful colors. Oh and the PUMPKIN PATCH! Yay! I love sweaters, boots and hot chocolate, so Fall is perfect. I'm telling you all of this because this month's best of stamp set is the Best Of Autumn. The bucket of apples stamp set is adorable and I love the fall tree and the "Give Thanks" sentiment. Maybe that's another reason I love fall; people always seem to be more thankful for the good in their life around this time of year. I'm sure it has something to do with Thanksgiving coming up but I love all the happiness. Anyway! Let's take a look at the stamp set:

Such nice images this month. I love fall themed cards too so these are perfect. If you'd like to purchase this stamp set you can either contact me directly or you can shop 24/7 in my online shop, HERE!
