Can You Felt It? - Waffle Flower Blog Hop

on May 05, 2014
Hello everyone! Welcome to Can You Felt It? - Waffle Flower Blog Hop! Today is the 5th of the month and also the day that the design team girls get together and share some fun craft projects using our newest stamps and dies released in April. waffle-flower-crafts-can-you-felt-it-blog-hop-badge We have teamed up with Benzie Design to share some felt projects today! nina-yang-raining-bow-felt-craft-3d-bows I used the Promise felt pack on my project. I ordered a few extra pieces of white felt (9"x12") to make my cloud. I free-hand drew a cloud on the felt and stitched two pieces together and stuffed it with polyester stuffings. nina-yang-raining-bow-felt-craft-3d-bows-stitching-cloud I then cut small pieces from the felt in the Promise pack to die cut with our Mailable 3D Bow Template Die. nina-yang-raining-bow-felt-craft-3d-bows-felt The felt cuts like butter. nina-yang-raining-bow-felt-craft-3d-bows-diecut And I like how the colors compliment each other. nina-yang-raining-bow-felt-craft-3d-bows-rainbow Our Mailable 3D Bow Template Die is all in one piece and you don't need any adhesive to assemble it. Here is a closeup on the back to show how the tail is tucked in. nina-yang-raining-bow-felt-craft-3d-bows-back I then cut some letters from both cork and felt for my sentiment. nina-yang-raining-bow-cloud I like the DCWV adhesive backed cork the best for die cutting projects. You can get 15 sheets of 6"x6" in a pack for $5.99 at Jo-Ann Store, where you can easily find a 40% off coupon for. nina-yang-raining-bow-diecut-cork The alphabet die I used was from Lifestyle Crafts / We R Memory Keepers, I'm sorry that the particular one I used is no longer available in the store, but you can find more of them here in WRMK's official store, they are $15 each and you can use code WAFFLE for 20% off your entire order. I know some people are saying that the dies with ejection foams like the alphabet die I used here cannot cut felt, but I tried and it cuts fine in my die cut machine. You may experiment with different shim combinations to get yours working. A quick tip: Cut your felt to fit your alphabet die so nothing is wasted! nina-yang-raining-bow-diecut-felt-letters I then used some floss to attached the bows to my cloud. nina-yang-raining-bow-felt-craft-3d-bows-supplies It's raining bow in my room! nina-yang-raining-bow-strings I had so much fun making this project and I hope that you are inspired to make something from felt as well!

Meet Our Design Team!

I'm a 30-something crafty girl born and raised in the Boston area, where I currently live with my husband and our dog. By day, I work as a cancer researcher, and by night I spend lots of time in my craft room. I began papercrafting in 2005, and since then I have scrapbooked big events like my wedding and travel, but I have mostly focused on cards after meeting two other card-makers at my local stamp store. This hobby is the perfect stress release for me, and I cherish so many of the friends I've made as a result of it. I am so excited to be joining Nina in her new adventure!
I enjoyed all the design teams I joined. Not only did I get to work with wonderful products, I also got to meet some wonderful people. I met Suzanne when I was on Neat and Tangled team. Suzanne's cards always speak Spring and happiness to me. I adore her clean and fresh style and think she's the queen of mixing and matching patterned paper on cards. You can find her beautiful creations on her blog: Freshly Noted and connect with her on the following sites:

Facebook Instagram Pinterest YouTube Flickr

I am truly grateful for the ladies joining me in this startup. I didn't think too much about their styles mixing, I just like their work and like them as people. The team blends very well together. I can't wait to see what inspiration they will bring us. I am very blessed to have them. Our design team will have separate giveaways on their blogs for each of our releases. Check them out often!
