BSS MONDAY IDEA - USING FUN FOAM AND FELT IN YOUR DIE CUTTING MACHINE

Good Monday morning, and welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.  Today, the idea is to think outside the box and use different materials in your die cutting machine. 

Here is my completed card.  Papers I used are from the Christmas collection from Graphic 45, as well as the sentiment strip.


I colored the faceted clear beads with Ranger alcohol inks, red pepper and cranberry.  I used a couple of drops of each color on the felt strip on the applicator tool,  It dries almost immediately, so you can do them all on one side and then flip them and do them on the other side.


The holly is a Sizzix die and I ran green and red felt through.  It cut like butter.  I used Stickles and a snow writer to decorate them.

The red bird is cut from red felt that is glittered and used the snow writer.  Made a double bow with twine.

I have used stiff organza for flowers and stiff net too.  I have some burlap I just bought, going to try that soon.

Hope you have a chance to try these ideas soon.  Thanks for stopping by.  Until later.....
