Moxie Fab Fascination with Feathers, Young Crafters Unite and Simon Says Stamp

I'm so excited about Moxie Fab's feather challenge! I have a Flourishes stamp set that I just HAD to have and yet still hadn't used!

I started out by heat embossing and fussy-cutting 2 peacocks. I then tried to figure out how to use them on cards.

This was my first card attempt but the peacocks ended up not really GOING. So rather than forcing it, I just let it be.


I love that Autumn Rose twill with Smokey Shadow! I'm entering this one in Young Crafters Unite stitching challenge.

I decided that I needed to nest the sentiment with the peacocks and so made the following two cards for the Moxie Fab feather challenge:



I used Soft Stone card bases on all three cards. The first peacock was white heat embossed on Sweet Blush cardstock and then inked with Victorian Velvet distress ink. The second peacock was white heat embossed on Soft Stone cardstock and inked with Pumice Stone distress ink.

Don't be surprised if I create a few more feather-themed cards!

I'm also entering this into Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge. Love these!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
