Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge!!!


Hello!!  Welcome to another PTI blog hop!!  This month we were challenged to use
FELT!!
Well, I decided to pair some felt with my new Up, Up, and Away stamp set!! 
Who doesn't love fluffy white clouds to look at with hot air balloons?
Here in Topeka KS, we have an annual hot air balloon festival called Huff 'n Puff and it's always so much fun to see these things up close!!  We've even done a tethered ride....pretty neato!!


Lot's of dimension here paired with the felt........I just love how the balloons seem to be in front of the clouds!!  This felt is actually from HL and comes in a stiff "sheet" as I only have Hawaiian Shores felt thus far!  Although, I have more on my wish list!!


I even used a bonus image from this set to hand stamp my own hot air balloon!!!  This was stamped in Spring Moss ink.  Pretty fun how you can make your own pattern!!  Possibilities are endless!!
This last image of my card shows using the medium scallop die to die cut a border of felt!!  Again, kinda looks like clouds there too!!


My last little project using felt actually uses some of my coveted Hawaiian Shores felt paired with more HL felt in PTI matching colors!  My model is my sweet daughter.....I made this cute cute hair clip using several of the Beautiful Blooms flower dies.  Hand sew a button on and hot glue a clip and whalaaa!!! 
An instant hair clip!!



Hope you have a fun time blog hopping!!

Love your card Amy, those felt clouds are awesome! I made a card with clouds cut with the MFT dies but have kept that back for another day as I really want to play with the PTI ones!

Cute flower hair clip too, love the colours!

Jennifer Carter said...

Ok...where to begin! :) Love how you stamped the clouds in versamark AND added the felt clouds too. That added so much dimension! Next, I never thought to stamp my own pattern in the balloon die cut. That is such a cute idea!! I'll have to remember that! Love how you did the bottom border! The felt, the buttons, the layering...all great!! And, the barette is adorable and so is your model! :)
