Good morning! I'm excited about today's post, which features brand new stamps and dies by my good friend Heather Nichols! She's launching her first product collection with Taylored Expressions, and I couldn't be happier for her! I'm excited that her and Taylor asked me to help celebrate her launch by creating a few things using her new goodies.
Heather has a few collections being released - I chose to work with her new Simply Stamped Feathers set, which includes stamps, dies, and a stencil. There is also a coordinating sentiment set called Wild & Free.
The multi-step feathers are so fun with their different patterns - very fun to mix and match. I stamped them randomly to create a background. After stamping all of the feathers, I added some gold splatters, then cut a rectangle from the center of my card front.
I played around with a few techniques for my second card. I started out by created a colorful background using the colored salt technique I shared a while back. Once that was dry, I used the new Feathered Stencil to add a bit of subtle pattern.
For the feathers, I diecut them, then sponged with some different Oxide inks, then heat embossed the feather details with white embossing powder. I arranged them over the background and popped them up with some foam tape.
Don't you just love these new sets? And how perfect that Heather's first set is Feathers. ;-) I'm so excited for you, Heather - Congrats!! And thank you to Taylor for inviting me to join in on the fun.
