felt flower

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

It's been a bit of an odd day, blogger has been acting a bit funny (problems with uploading photos) and my mojo seems to have disappeared too! Anyway, I struggled on with this card. I found a great tutorial on how to make this felt flower at How Joyful blog, Joy has some great flower tutorials, I can't wait to try the rose one!

It does involve a bit of sewing but not too much. The leaves I stamped using the Roses in Bloom stamp set by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I also embossed a pretty doily from Dainty Doilies -Large set by Waltzingmouse Stamps. The background is stamped using Gingham & Co by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases and the little label is from the Bitty Banners stamp set both Waltzingmouse Stamps. The felt border I die cut using the Marianne design lace border die. Papers are from Prima Botanical and 7Gypsies Conservatory Collection.

It's Isabelle's last day of pre-school tomorrow! We're off on a little holiday (vacation) to Donegal on Saturday, staying at a lovely house on the beach, hopefully we'll get a bit of nice weather but this is Ireland so we'll be prepared for all weather! : ) A few cards to prepare before we go! Here's hoping blogger is fixed soon!
