The Craft's Meow's February 2013 Release Hop

Welcome to The Craft's Meow's February Release Blog Hop. Thank you for joining us today. If you came from our Guest for this month, Lynn, then you're at the right spot. To see the full list, make sure you visit the TCM blog. I have 2 cards for you today using my two designs being released today, Baby Shelf and Soaring High, this month's Free set with $50 purchase!

My first uses Baby Shelf set, which coordinates with Beautiful Shelf. It uses one of my Polaroid frames that I shared earlier. I stamped and fussy cut the lamp and put against the "wall" and adorned it with some Want2Scrap heart bling. The bear is actually felt.

I've always wanted to stamp on felt, so now I have to show you something I learned when doing this. I found that the best inks for this is pigment. You can see the comparison on the crispness of the stamped image using dye ink Memento on the left and the Pigment Versafine on the right. Both inks are by Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts.
Felt
I love the added "fuzziness" of the felt for the teddy bear. The banner is placed there to provide balance. The pearls are by Want2Scrap and paper by Authentique.

My second card uses my Soaring High stamp set. This is a little bit more formal and elegant. I had to pair the image and sentiment with Spellbinders' new Brackett Borders One dies.

Here's a close up...don't you just love how perfectly the bird, sentiment and die cut border fit together? :)

  3. Beautiful cards - can you say a sympathy card is beautiful? It is anyway. Thanks for the tip with the felt - I thought it was flocking of some sort until a kept reading. Great idea. Teddies should be fuzzy. Thanks.

  25. Both of your cards are really crisp and amazing. I do love the Spellbinders borders. They finished off your card perfectly. And the pearls so perfectly aligned. Thanks for the instructions of stamping on felt. Whatever could be a more perfect use of felt than with a Teddy Bear? Great creations.

  28. Right here is the right webpage for anyone who really wants to find out about this topic.
    You understand a whole lot its almost tough to argue with
    you (not that I really would want to…HaHa). You certainly
    put a fresh spin on a topic that has been written about for decades.
    Great stuff, just wonderful!

  33. Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against
    hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?
