DT Challenge: I’m feeling the felt!

ihp0412Hello!  Welcome to our monthly DT Challenge.  Today we’re using the new 100% wool felt that I added to to store after CHA.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this felt.  It comes in a nice 8”x12” sheet and is perfectly priced at only $3.15 a sheet so you can get an assortment of colors for a very reasonable price.  This felt is so soft and cuts so cleanly.  For my project I used some new paper from the Hello Spring pad and die-cut some puffy clouds, with a few popped up with my favorite dimensional dots.  I stamped (using Memento ink) onto kraft paper and cut out the tree branch from the Paper Smooches Whimsical set.  Then I die-cut some snow white and  dusty rose felt using the Scalloped Buttons and Round Buttons dies and hand sewed them with some thread to hold them together.  Then I stamped the greeting from the new Simply Said Paper Smooches greeting set and added a knotted white stain ribbon as a final touch.

I hope you’ll hop around and see the team’s projects.  This month our guest designer, Karolyn is playing along so don’t forget her!

Thanks for stopping in today.  Have a great day!
