Stitched Felt Flowers Card!

I am a stamper! I stamp with a rubber stamp and ink. This card has no stamping on it and I felt like a fish out of water working on it. I wanted to play with the new Stampin' Up! "Stitched Felt" flowers. I mean, I buy these things and just set them aside. For what? I thought I would play with them while they are still new! Before they retire and even before I put them in a cupboard or drawer and forget about them.

SO I opened the package and wasn't sure what I wanted to do. I knew I needed to make some thank you cards and a get well card this week so I was thinking on those lines. I took a half sheet of white card stock and folded it in half. I layered a piece of Chocolate Chip on top of that. I ran a piece of Pretty in Pink card stock through the Big Kick using the "Top Note" die. I also ran a white piece of card stock through it too. No, not at the same time! Then I took the white piece and ran it through the "Dotted Swiss" Cuttlebug folder. I trimmed the edges on the white and taped it on top of the Pretty in Pink card stock. The bird and "leaves" are from the new "Extra Large Two-Step Bird" punch. It's a very fun and easy punch to use too. Oh and I love how they lock shut and take up very little space when you stand them on end. These are definitely going to be a great space saver for me.

I punched the bird out of Brocade Blue and I sponged the edges. I used a marker to dot they eye and Pumpkin Pie marker to color in the beak. I then glued everything in place. I was going to use tape but I wasn't sure if it would stick very well so I went with the glue. Now I wished I'd have used the tape. As I look at the flower I think it could have been moved down more. But the glue is more permanent so I'm stuck with it as it is.

SO there you have it, a card with no stamping. An interesting concept for me. And get this, I may even try it again sometime!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
