Good morning! I was excited to come home the other day and find a surprise package sitting on my doorstep - I was lucky enough to win one of the CHA new release giveaways from My Mind's Eye, and was amazed at how quickly it arrived! I had fun oohing and ahhing over the package, and all the fun dies immediately caught my eye, so I had to try them out! I started off with this feather - and I am super impressed with how well it cut out, and it embosses too! Here is what I made with it:
Also linking this up with this weeks Anything Goes Challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:
I die cut it with some MFT Persimmon cardstock. Cardbase is some MME pattern paper, and I stamped a sentiment from Mama Elephant on some vellum that I had torn the top and bottom edges on and heat embossed with Ranger Platinum embossing powder, before attaching it with some machine stitching on the sides. Added several wraps of silver thread with some sequins threaded on, rounded a couple corners, and adding a bit of Heidi Swapp Color Shine on the corners. Finally, tucked the feather under, glued it on the bottom, then used some foam adhesive under the top of it for a bit of dimension.
Can't wait to play with more of these dies and try them more! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
