Moxie Fab Felt Challenge

Hi!  Just sharing a card today I created for the Fabulous Felt Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

The felt buttons were really simple to make...just took a little time to do do the stitching around the edge.  The 100% wool felt I used from Felt on the Fly cuts beautifully.  I used my circle Nestabilities for the button and a 1/8" circle punch for the four button holes.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Big Hugs clear stamp of my favorites!  And I white embossed the Envelope Pattern on the white card base to add a little more texture.

Thanks for stopping by!

Congrats, Tina! I have sent you an email.  Thanks! :)

Congrats, Jenn!  Please send me an email and I'll pass your info on to the girls at Summer Card Camp.

And now I just have a couple cards to share I created ages ago that were just sitting in a folder on my computer. (Acutally, I think they were both rejects from magazine submissions.)  All stamps are Hero Arts.

Halle starts 1st grade next week and Gage will be in preschool next month.  Which means hopefully you'll be seeing a little more of me around here. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Hero Arts Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts Holiday Blog Hop!  Today we are celebrating because all of the new Holiday 2011 stamps are now available in the Hero Arts online store.  Yay!

I've got a couple projects to share using some of these fabulous new stamps. First up is this card...

The trees and sentiment are from the Christmas Reindeers (CL540) stamp set.  And that scalloped border was created using one of the snowflake images from the Snowflakes (CL562) stamp set.

I had an extra tree leftover from my card, so rather than throw it in my scrap pile I decided to make it into a little gift tag to add to a bag.

The tag image used here is one of three cute images from the Christmas Tags (CL554) stamp set.  I will definitely be using this set for my Christmas wrapping this year!

Well, you have reached the end of the hop.  Did your wishlist grow?!?! ;)   Click here to shop for all of the new products in the Joy to You Holiday 2011 catalog.

If you missed any of the stops you can find all the links on the Hero Arts Blog.

And don’t forget about the giveaway! We have new holiday stamps up for grabs! Be sure to comment here and on ALL of the designer's blogs, as well as the Hero Arts blog, for a chance to win.

Have a great day!
