Market Street Stamps Guest Designer

Hello Everyone!  I am so excited to share with you my two projects that I made for my Guest Designer spot at Market Street Stamps!!  THIS card won me a spot as a Guest Designer!  Also, there is a new free digi, and an opportunity to be a Guest Designer, at the Market Street Block Party!  You can see my feature on their blog here:  Market Street Stamps Blog.

Ok, on to my cards.  The first one uses the super adorable set called Birds of a Feather.  I used a real peacock feather on my card.  Who knew that a feather was going to be SOOOOO hard to photograph??  In person, the colors are much softer and have such an amazing shimmer.   I got this feather from my son, who has started a little chicken coop and also has two peacocks...  just for the "fun" of it.  haha.  They are LOUD!!!

 This card will be given as a wedding card to a couple getting married this summer.
She used a peacock feather stamp on her Save-The-Dates, so I think it may be her theme!

I colored the peacock with watercolor crayons, and then used a paint brush to apply gold Smooch spray.  The little hearts have dimensional glaze on them.  

My next card uses the sweet set called Cool Cats.  The cats are actually two separate images.  I just love how they cuddle up to each other so nicely!!!

I used my new My Mind's Eye paper called Dilly Dally to paper piece the cats.  
Lots of little fussy cutting here!!

I really enjoyed working with my Market Street Stamps!  Be sure to check them out!
