Playing around with felt

I never thought I would be able to use felt in such a cute way! I am loving seeing what everyone is doing with it! It inspired me to run it through my Sizzix with the Cuttlebug Asteriks die. I did find out though that not all felt will work with the cuttlebug dies. This felt was pretty thin and somewhat stiff. It did work great though! I like the red flowers but wish I had another color on hand to work with. I'll pick some more colors up when I am out next.

  • Happy Everything (SU), Flourishes (Rhonna Farrer) stamp sets
  • Aloe Vera Versamagic chalk ink, Real Red classic ink
  • Cuttlebug Asteriks die
  • red felt
  • rhinestones

Now this card came out of absolutely nowhere. I threw it together in about 10 minutes. I like how it turned out though. Nothing too bold. I thought about using ribbon where the paper piercing is but thought that might make it over done. I did pop another dress up on top of the one underneath that I had already colored.

  • Diva Dresses (TAC), Paper Tray (PaperTrey) stamp sets
  • Regal Rose re-inker
  • Black Stazon ink
  • push pin, rhinestones, pop dots
Allison tagged me to tell 7 things about myself and then tag 7 people to do the same. So, here goes.

*I have never smoked a cigarette even though both of my parents were smokers (I think that's why!).

*When I get scared while watching a movie I wiggle my toes.

*If I ever came into some money, the first thing I would do is get my teeth fixed. They have never been straight.

*I am a cat person and grew up with all kinds of animals as a kid. However within the last 3 years have developed allergies to pet dander and pretty much sneeze my head off any time I get near any. That includes our Guinea Pig Franklin.

*I belch quite often. And usually quite loudly! But don't worry, I always say excuse me!

*I love to fish! Hubby is teaching me the in and outs of bass fishing though and hopefully we get to plan a day to go together.

*Lately my absolute favorite indulgence is Ferro Rocher chocolates!!! Good gracious they are yummy!

Alright, now I will tag the following....

I love the card with the dresses along the bottom. I agree ribbon would have been too much, I like the paper piercing!

Amy said...

Ah, you're killing me again with the gorgeous aloe vera ink! Love the contrast between the warm felt and the icy rhinestones!

Julie said...

Now on to the good stuff. I love your Flourishes card with the felt flowers! It's so pretty...and I love the rhinestone centers.

Your Diva Dresses are so cute, and I love how you colored the one dress and popped it out. Love the bling on the waist!

Very nice!!

Beautiful card. I have been reading your blog for sometime now and just noticed that you live in Troy. I am in Toledo. I am originally from Seattle, but my husband grew up in Troy. Small world.
