Stamped Feather Cards
I've noticed that feather stamps have been flying out the door lately, so I'm going to share two simple feather cards you can stamp up - one uses the small feather, and the other one, the favorite feather. On the first card Teresa Abajo stamped a rainbow of small feathers using 10 different distress ink colors, wrapped the card with twine, and added a simple, but meaningful sentiment. This card will surely bring some cheer to the recipient.
And here is a card by Jennifer Ingle, she has used the large (favorite) feather to create a "feathered thanks." She stamped the feather with a deep peach color and embossed the tips with a lavender embossing powder from Stampendous. She added a sticker to finish the card.
Thanks for stopping by today - What would your feather card say?

Rubber Stamped Summer Mini-Album
Summertime is here (or at least it has been coming and going here in Ohio) and I want to share this wonderful hand-stamped scrapbook album with a vintage feel by design team member Irit Shalom. She put together a beautiful mini-album that makes me think of childhood summertime fun.
This is the cover that features the child looking up. But in the background she has stamped the old script stamp with Clearsnap Frosty White - the white stands out beautifully among the misted background. Along the lower right edge she stamped the Spring Bouquet with Ranger Archival Ink and then heat-embossed the edge with Metallic Copper WOW! embossing power.
She continued with the same metallic embossed technique through the whole book which gives it a nice cohesive feel. Here she stamped the boy day dreaming, hot air balloon (our current free stamp), and the flock of crows. And she mixed Ranger mists together and sprayed them all over the page.
Here she used the old script again in white with the flower girls. I like how she used the stickers on each page to echo the playful feeling of the images.
This is the butterfly boy stamped as the focal point with the old script again in white in the background. Irit created this mini album to share some adorable photos of her grandson. You can visit her blog to see how lovely these pages look next to her cute little grandson.

Rip and Tear to Create a Frame
Here's a beautiful card made by design team member Caro. She used several 100 Proof Press images, and found a creative way to draw attention to the center image with a frame. She ripped and tore an oval shape around the focus of her card (the hugging children with the tree grove in the background). I love all the layers and textures.
(stamps used: Hugging Children, Mature Tree Grove, Honeycomb Texture, Large Corner Design, and ART)

Rubber Stamped Art Necklace
Design team member Caro created this pendant with some chipboard and the ART rubber stamp. I think it's a cool way to use rubber stamps, and I wanted to share this piece with you. Have you ever created a wearable piece of art with rubber stamps?

We are well into April which means the deadline for the Spring Rubber Stamp Challenge is approaching (Sunday is last day you have to share your stamp art with us on Facebook). I'm here to share a tag designed by our design team member Teresa - I'm hoping it will inspire you to get out your flowery stash and stamp up something for the challenge. Teresa used our last month's free stamp (the root vegetable) and the queen of tea and cake - and to make it bloomy, she added some pink flowers.
I'd also like to let you know that we have another blog hop that starts next Tuesday with a fun supply company called Hydrangea Hippo. We are going to have some fabulous pieces to share with you. I hope you find some time to stamp (and share with us), and join us next week for the Hippo Hop!

If you're thinking you want to enter the challenge, but you don't have any "bloomish" type stamps, you can always add a little something to your card, layout, or project for it to fit the theme. Here are two samples that do just that. Design team members Teresa and Christine both embellished the fence book with stamps and some flowers.
