Wow, thank you Pals Paper Arts, for picking me as one of your featured Artists this week! You make stamping so fun!!!
For this Pals Paper Arts Challenge: Anything but a Card, I knew right away I wanted to showcase the Table Setting Bigz Die. I have had such fun using my Big Shot with fabric, and this napkin ring holder is made with felt and fleece! The rosettes are made from fleece and the actual napkin ring is made from felt which is textured with a scroll pattern. The leaves and flower centers are made from the Sweet Pea Felt Flowers in the Spring Mini. The nameplate is cut out of Pixie Pink and is also part of this Bigz Die. I discovered this idea on Christie Daugherty's blog: http://www.stampshacklady.blogspot.com/ where she has a video tutorial. It is put together with the glue gun! How easy is that?!! I bought 1/8th yard of 2 colors of fleece for about 67 cents each piece! And the felt is usually only about 25 cents a square. The tiny little rosette on the place card is my invention. I just used a small part of the rosette piece and cut out some felt leaves and a felt center. The dot in the center is with a brown marker!
This die is still available even though it was in the Holiday Mini. It is 116819 and you can order it from me when you go to the Order Online button!
Thanks for stopping by!

How can you go wrong with a sketch by Margaret Moody and some beautiful DSP? The yummy (and sparkly) "Sending Love" Specialty Designer paper creates the background for the "Dreams De Jour" stamp set using the "Love you" stamp. The new Chocolate Brown satin ribbon sets off this card with a simple knot rather than a bow. Textured Pretty in Pink cardstock and Textured Chocolate Chip cardstock are layered for some dimention, and don't forget the little Pretty in Pink brads. The square punch and scalloped square punch were also used. I distressed the edges of the pink square a bit by dragging the edge of the scissors around the cardstock to give a "shabby chic look! A little coloring with my markers give the sentiment some a dash of color to tie the card together. Notice my Valentine theme cards just keep comin!
