Daring Card Makers " Use Felt " Fairy Fun Fridays " Heat Embossing "

Why oh why is it every time I upload some of my cards than the next day there appears a couple of great challenges with the same theme  ! I always feel one step behind ! This usually happens when I feel I have done my best work. Well as you can guess it has happened again..

Two new challenge blogs to me the first is Daring Card Makers whose theme is ” Use Felt ” well my previous post was filled with the stuff !!! Luckily enough I had some pieces that I didn’t post so I would like to share them with you.

Wont bore you all with the details the three panels are velum card and felt which I have embossed you can just make out the sentiment if you squint !!

For those of us with bloggers blindness have added a couple of close ups !

On this one I have made a tag card cut some leaves with the tattered floral die by TH and embossed them. Made a little felt flower and added a pearl.

As my regular followers will know am in a bit of a felt embossing frenzy at the moment !

This is a broach I made using black felt card and a button covered in stickles .
This next card  I want to share is for Fairy Fun Fridays who have asked us to use heat embossing on our cards . Once again my previous post was full of  the marvelous stuff ! It also has some felt on it so maybe it can be entered in both challenges !

I have double embossed here onto design paper so the paper actually shows through the embossing.  I used my brayer to add Versamark embossing ink onto the inside of my embossing folder and then ran it through the big shot, I then sprinkled the image with SU black embossing powder and heat set it. This gives the background a lovely shiny effect……..honest.  Die cuts are by Hero Arts added a little glitter glue and there you are !

Why not head over to Daring Card Makers and Fairy Fun Fridays and see the wonderful DT pieces am sure you will be as inspired as I was.

Take care

  1. Hi Marie,I love your fabulous felt creations! Your broach is amazing! I also love the technique you used on your last card with the embossing folder and ink:)Enjoy a lovely weekend:)

  2. All your work with felt is just fantastic, Marie. I love the flower you made. I learned an idea from you today… running the brayer with clear ink pad over the embossing folder and then heat set the e.p. Never thought to do that. Duh! Love how yours turned out. And the sparkling snow (done with Stickles) is wonderful. I just can't get enough shiny stuff.

  3. wowee! stunning. they're all wonderful pieces of art, but i especially LOOOOOVE that broach! gorgeous! and the christmas card: clever and so cute! way to go with the felt!

  7. Καλησπέρα Marie! Νομίζω ότι πρώτα παίρνουν από σένα την έμπνευση και μετά κάνουν την πρόκληση! Τι λες κι εσύ?! Όλες σου οι κάρτες είναι πανέμορφες! Δεν ξέρω ποια να ξεχωρίσω! Πότε θα μάθω κι εγώ να φτιάχνω τόσο καλές κάρτες?! Ίσως πρέπει να το πάρω πιο ζεστά το θέμα : ) φιλάκια

  10. Talk about 'bloggers blindness'. I thought your first three words were "Darling Card Makers", and of course thought you were addressing me! ah well. Again, I am so in love with what you do, Marie. Every card is a masterpiece and makes my heart go pitty patt. Your eye for colour and the proper material is simply grand. Your reindeer card with the little trees is gorgeous – the reindeer himself being the delight of all delights! He must have a huge ego! Anyway, glad you are home safe and sound … sending loving thoughts your way. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous work, and also … thanks for all the wonderful things you say on my blog. I'm a lovely shade of pink most of the time .. you are better than a good face cream. :o) xxDonna
