What a weekend it’s been for challenges on SCS. So much fun, so little time.
Here’s another challenge, this time from Paula, I found on SplitCoastStampers called “Pride and Prejudice“. The challenge was to create a “warm and fuzzy” feeling card using felt or flocking. The warm and fuzzy comes from the feeling you get while reading a good book.
I’m hoping this count, as it is not quite “flocking”. I have not ‘flocked’ before and my felt collection has been raided by the children for puppets. So I thought I would use a very thin polar fleece like material that I have in the ‘big bin of fabric’. (please indulge me: that should be echoed: the big bin of fabric, fabric, fabric ….)
I cut the flowers (Large Daisies) using an old Sizzix die cut. The are pretty strong, kinda like a smaller version of the new S.U. Big Shot. Which means all the new die cuts from S.U. will not fit in my old machine. Sigh. Might be time to save my coins for the New Big Shots. The BigzTM and OriginalsTM are Rule Based Dies and cut through a lot! Even this polar fleece flower (which doesn’t fray, so would be great for all kinds of quick projects).
