I seem to always get at least one new stamp set every release, and the July release was no exception. I did not have a single stamp set with feathers, didn't think I needed any, didn't think I knew how I would use them, didn't actually even know why it was such a popular trend these days. Well, now I know. Claire released two set of feather stamp sets during July and I totally get it now! When I saw these sets of card done by Claire, I knew I just had to get the Funky Feathers stamp set. Those feathers are just too cute...love that some are very realistic and some are graphic and trendy. One of the themes this month is titled "Tickle Me Silly" and challenges us to use feathers.
I have had a cute door hanger pinned for a while now and that was the inspiration for my door hanger/gift card holder using Funky Feathers and a baby theme. Here's is the inspiration photo and a link to the original post.
I love the great peacock feather die cuts and interesting way the tissue paper is tucked into the pocket displaying the gift card.
I have a baby shower coming up this month and my niece's colors and teal and pink for her new little girl. I have a whole baby album ready for her and think a door hanger would look really cute attached to her package. Here is what I came up with:
I cut a door hanger on my Silhouette using a file that has a fold over pocket. I stamped a peacock feather pattern using Funky Feathers. It is such fun to come up with different color combinations for those feathers. I added a sentiment onto a Lil Inker Gift Bow Topper die cut from Waltzingmouse A Good Egg stamp set and used some glitter stickers to add the new baby's name to the top of the hanger. I glued some feathers into the pocket and tucked in a little gift card from Babies R Us. Once the gift tag is removed, my nice can hang this on the door to Melissa's room.
I can't wait to see how this looks tied on the gift bag I have chosen in similar colors.
Enough talk from me...you have a pajama party to get to! Don't be the first one to fall asleep, you'll miss all kinds of great Waltzingmouse projects if you do.
