Throwback Thursday #4 - Fanciful Feathers

It's time for another Throwback Thursday Challenge.  This month we are heading back to 2013 and the Fanciful Feathers stamp set.  I have loved this set since the day it released.  The sentiments are among my favorites from the entire WPlus9 collection!

Stamps: Fanciful Feathers // Ink:  Lake House, Cockleshell, Nautical Navy,  //Cardstock:  Nautical Navy

My cards this month are the epitome of CAS design.  This first card uses Masking.  Masking is a great technique to use on CAS cards.  It allows you to add stamping and interest without adding layers.  I masked off the top part of my card and then stamped the feathers in Lake House, Cockleshell and Nautical Navy inks.  I then removed the mask and repeatedly stamped the sentiment.  I finished this card off with a strip of Nautical Navy cardstock and some embellishments, which I carried through all three designs.

Like my first card, the stamping on this card is kept in one area. This time though I've used the larger feathers in the set and stamped them across the cardstock.  I grounded them with a strip of Nautical Navy cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment in white.  Heat embossing in white on dark cardstock is always a striking detail.

For my last card I got a little trendy.  Have you noticed a lot of stamped card bases popping up, along with curvy card fronts?  I sure have. Here I used the Landscape Border Dies to cut the top panel for my card. I curved my sentiment on my acrylic block before inking and stamping so that it would follow the curve of the panel. Then I stamped the card base and added two more feathers, then completed the design with the same Nautical Navy strip and embellishments.
