Live Well Laugh Often Love Much


The sentiment on this card is one of my favorites of all time. I decided to frame the sentiment (stamp by Northwoods) with a feather opening created with a QuicKutz die. To see what I did with the feather I cut out, come back tomorrow. I started with a piece of watercolor paper that I sprinkled on sandstone and olive green Brusho Colour Crystals and spritzed with a gold spray from Heidi Swapp. Then I stamped the leaves from Designs by Ryn in black ink. I die cut the feather opening and stamped the "Live Well" in the feather frame. I added a couple gems to complete the card.

I am entering this card in the "Take a Stamp" challenge at Craft Stamper Magazine and the Anything Goes challenge at 613 Avenue Create.

Hello! I was on Pinterest and saw your cards using a Quickutz Feather Die cut out and then a stamped scene behind it. I was wondering if you recalled the cards that were published in Scrap and Stamp magazine so long ago in 2013. I am searching for that feather die because my husband does photography and I have a special birthday card planned for him. All I have been able to find is a Set of feathers from Quickutz. It’s a 4x4 die. It looks as if you used the largest feather die and if that is the one, I can’t figure out how you were able to die cut just one of the feathers on the card stock without the other feathers cutting as well.
Help! If I had your email, I would send you a photo of the 4x4 Quickutz feather die.
