Ruffle your Feathers

Hello fellow stampers!  How do you like my five hour card?  Yup, five hours to make this card.  I knew that I wanted a rustic look, and the planning took so many hours to do, replacing idea after idea, until I finally found the right combination of stamps, embossing powder and colours.  Please tell me you find yourself in the same position as me.  I can’t be the only one to spend so many hours planning out a card.

This stamp, called Ruffle your Feathers, is a new release for Technique Junkies for the month of May.  Don’t despair that you missed out on the “new release discount” because you can grab my code TJ10Beth for 10% off of anything in the store, excluding clearance items.


  1. Stamp Little Checkerboard in black ink over white cardstock
  2. Stamp Plaid in red over white cardstock
  3. Heat emboss Chicken Wire 2 with gold embossing powder
  4. Layer each stamped image as shown above
  5. Add a black border around the card front and around the image, and complete by adding a gold border around both the card front and image

A super country combination! Most of my cards take a long time and not a short time.

Oh you are not alone, sometimes the cards that look like they must not have taken any time at all took the longest to make, weird isn’t it. You have done great with your color combo on your coloring and the red and black background with the gold touches is so cool!

Very cute card, Bethie! And you are not alone. I am so slow and the planning (what papers, stamps, dies, embellies PLUS for me figuring out which challenges I can play the card in) it all takes time PLUS writing a blog post and linking my post to the challenges. UGH, I could literally make at least one other card in that extra time. Update on your question if I ever win? I’ve been winning lately! Check out my sidebar next time you are on my blog. xoxo

Always! I spend more time designing a project and chasing down the supplies than I do creating! This is a fun card, Beth! Love it!!! Thanks for sharing!
