Hope is the Thing with Feathers Coffee Filter Card

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a simple greeting card idea using coffee filters, spray ink, and the "Hope is the Thing with Feathers' Quietfire Design stamp.  This card was published in the Winter 2016 issue of Creative Scrapbooker magazine as part of an article that looked at using different kitchen supplies for paper crafting.



  Simply spritz a little bit of ink (I used several complementary colours of Colorbox Spritzer dye ink) onto a round coffee filter and let dry.  Adhere the coffee filter to a piece of cardstock with a glue stick or spray adhesive, incorporating some wrinkles if you wish.
 

Add the stamped quote and embellish the card with a couple of hand cut or die cut feathers.  I also added two white feathers from the dollar store to add some extra contrast.

Here's another similar card made with blue spray ink and the Just Living is not Enough stamp.  Quick and simple to make, but a little different looking with the inky coffee filter.  Just add a bit of ribbon and a little flower made out of some of the extra coffee filters.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
