Glittery Feathers

This card was made for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge #149: Glitter Embellishments. And it WAS a challenge for me. While I love glitter and put Stickles on EVERYTHING, glitter itself and I do NOT get along. I just can't seem to do it right. So, I used glitter embossing powder in holographic, and heat embossed the glitter on.

Here's my card.

These feathers are from the new Papertrey Ink Stamp Set called Feather Finery. I just love this set, so many possibilities. There's 3 feather images in different sizes, along with lots of small stamps for added fun. You can also get a set of dies that go along with the stamp set, and the dies are spot on. They match perfectly. So I cut the shape out with the die on vellum. Then I stamped the feathers with Versamark and heat embossed them with white embossing powder, and then the holographic glitter powder. They are stunning! The photo just doesn't do the glitter justice. I can't wait to play with theses stamps more.
Patterned paper is from my stash. I mounted the whole thing on GKD Pure Luxury 120 lb paper in Ivory.

Still freezing cold here, with lots of blowing and sub-zero wind chills. Good thing I have my beloved craft room to keep me occupied. Thanks for stopping by, and stay warm my friends.


  1. YOWZA! How fantastic are your glittery feathers?!?! You are posting some AMAZING cards (just like I knew you would, of course!) Shall we just ask one more time, WHY did you wait so long to create a Blog? hahaha And do NOT call me BRAT! :) Another wonderful creation baby! Well done!

  2. That feather is a stamp? Seriously? It looks so real, and then there is the glittery look that you were able to do. That sentiment, is just like I said about you having a blog. You had the wings, you just needed to FLY!

  3. Looks like a success to me! I have only used glitter once or twice myself! Great job Judy...and yes why did you wait so long to blog...your so good at it!

  4. Gorgeous card, Judy!! Nice to see you over here :)

  5. I thought they were real feathers until I read the post. This is a really beautiful card, enough to sell me on the feather set. I'm in Southeast Michigan, and it's already been a long winter. It must be worse for you guys!

    1. I think that you guys down there in Southeast Michigan have gotten it worse than we have up here Laurilee. And thanks for the lovely comments.

  6. This is so cool! I love the feathers. They looks so real....great colors on the card. I really love the whole thing! Wonderful job!

  7. I am amazed that they are not real feathers! Wow! Your card is awesome and unbelieveably beautiful! Way to go girl!
