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.

It's Canning & Stamping Time
It's that time of year when if you grow tomomatoes you have more fruits then you know what to do with. We have been slicing and dicing and canning salsa, salsa, and more salsa. Design team member, Alexa Lett, knew just what to do with the mason jar stamp. This is a mixed media piece is designed around the jar that incorporates a lovely vintage-handmade feel. I like the way she used the old pages of a book for a canvas, and the free-motion stitching ties it all together. And of course, you have to love the little heart in the jar - what would you put in mason jar?

My dad can't stop wondering why it's called canning, and not jarring. Anyone?
