Papertrey Feather Finery Stamp Set with the Feather Finery Coordinating Dies and Limitless Layers - Ovals. I also used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Dies and a WPLUS9 Sunshine Layers Die.
The Feathers were stamped on to 44# Vellum and heat embossed with Simon Says Stamp Antique Gold Embossing Powder or Simon Says Stamp Gold Embossing Powder. The card with the brown and soft white label is the regular Gold Embossing Powder. I rarely use the two powders side by side, but I hope that in my pictures you'll be able to see the difference. I can, but I know what I'm looking for. My preference is still for the Antique Gold because it is a rich, warm gold.

By stamping the feathers on the vellum, I could die cut after they were stamped and heat set. Since Vellum is transparent, it was easy to see to line them up. I also did a few feathers that are stamped in ink and I did those by using the negative as a place holder with my MISTI tool. I just didn't happen to use any of those for these cards.
The last card here uses Stamper's Select White Cardstock for my card base and the background panel is cut from Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue Cardstock. The small oval is cut from a scrap of Simon Says Stamp Surf Blue Cardstock.
Everything here is super easy to do and duplicate. I really like how the "speckles" came out on my background panels so I made a few more while I was at it. I've done similar backgrounds to this before but with a different technique which resulted in larger spatters. Each way has their time and place in card-making depending on the look you want, so I will use this new way as well.
