Embellish Color Challenge :: Felt

Hey Everyone! Happy Friday to you! It's time for another Embellish Color Challenge. This time, we are focusing on a unique color combination and felt. Did you know our sponsor, My Favorite Things, sells a wide variety of felt? It's great and I so love working with it. I've made a card and a scrap layout using it.


Instructions
  1. Trim felt to about 4" x 5" and stitch a border, then adhere to A2 card front.
  2. Stamp image 4 times - on white, red, yellow, and patterned paper cardstocks, then cut out and paper piece.
  3. Adhere to card front.
  4. Stamp umbrella and sentiment, then adhere to card front.
Supplies

Stamps :: My Favorite Things - rainy day friends
Ink :: Stampin' Up! - chocolate chip; Copic - markers
Cardstock :: Papertrey Ink - pure poppy, lemon tart; Close to My Heart - white
Patterned Paper :: My Mind's Eye - quite contrary collection
Embellishments :: My Favorite Things - felt, crystals


Here is a layout I designed. It's McArthur and expresses my deep love for him. I'm so blessed to have him in my life. So, here it is - love him rain or shine!

I used the Rainy Day stamp set for the journaling. I stamped it on white cardstock, added distress ink and trimmed it into strips. I added the journaling to a vintage tag.

Using some deep red felt, I die cut a couple of stars and added buttons to finish it off. It's a very quick and easy scrap layout that anyone can do! The base is My Mind's Eye patterned paper cut to an 8.5" x 11" size. Here are some detailed photographs.




Have a great weekend! Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you get time to participate in this super fun challenge!
