Changing Moody Monday to Make-It Monday


After spending a chunk of time today trying to get my daughter to go to an appointment and class she didn’t want to attend, I was in a pretty good funk.  So I decided to delve into my Pinterest board of cards I’ve wanted to make for a long time and used my “found” time to do just that.

This is a card for a friend whose birthday is at the end of the week and has been asking me to make her some feather cards.  I’ll leave it unsigned and send it along with a blank envelope as a little birthday gift for her.  Years ago I found a little poem to enclose in just such situations:

​I didn’t sign this card
​before I sent it off to you,
instead it holds my warmest thoughts
invisible but true.
So if you find you need to
brighten someone’s day,
then take this card and sign it
​and send it on its way.
OK, it’s more than a little cheesy, but it works!

To make this card I dug into my retired products a bit…the card base is stamped in Smoky Slate with the Dictionary background stamp, and the feathers are stamped with Four Feathers in Smoky Slate, Lost Lagoon and Soft Sky.  I used the Feathers Framelits to cut them out, then covered them with the 2-Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  While they dried I stamped the spatter from Gorgeous Grunge in Archival Basic Gray a couple of times, then put a tiny dab of Fast Fuse in the lower, right quadrant and started looping the Silver Metallic Thread, catching it whenever possible on the Fast Fuse.  The Island Indigo feather is adhered with Fast Fuse, the other 2 with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

I stamped the birthday sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts on a ½” strip of Whisper White card stock and flagged each end with the Banner Punch.  It’s also popped up with Dimensionals.

​I feel better now…hope you’re having a great Monday!

Looking ahead…


Here’s Sara teasing us with the new Annual Catalog!  I’m very excited to see it when I’m at OnStage Live in Salt Lake City later this week.  Want to be sure you get your copy?  Place an order with me, or send me an email and I’ll be sure you get one!

With a new catalog will come new InColors for 2016-2018.  That means it’s almost time to say goodbye to the 2014-2016 InColors…perhaps my favorite ones yet!  Be sure to stock up before supplies run out…in particular the Ink Refills will sell out quickly!
