Thinking of you

Hello! It's day 2 of Clean And Simple 4 class at Online Card Classes. Today I fell in LOVE with the fabulous Shari Carroll's awesome technique...stamping with fun foam! I am seriously smitten with this technique. Incredibly easy. Incredibly fun! I used the Pointed Feather Dies from Simon Says Stamp. I cut it out of white fun foam to make my stamp. I inked it up with Mint Julep Hero Arts Shadow Ink and then rock-n-rolled on some Soft Pool ink. While I liked the first stamping, I super loved the second generation stamping...and that's what I used on my card. :) Subtle and lovely. 
I also cut some vellum feathers with the Pointed Feather Dies. I used the ink splotch stamps from the Family Is Everything set from MyCreativeTime to add gold embossing to my vellum feathers. For the sentiment, I used the Chocolate Greetings set from MyCreativeTime
