Happy Monday!

I'm not too happy to see Monday just yet, but I hope you all had a good weekend! I did - I was a bit busy, but overall a good weekend! Today I wanted to share a couple cards using Queen and Co. Felt, (And Jacksonbelle Embellishments happens to carry many varieties!) Cute stuff! I've seen some AWESOME scrapbook pages with this stuff but that is WAY beyond my talents! I made two cards with it...one simple....the other requires just a little bit more work!
The Simple Card.
The Simple Card
This card was easy! I just picked a few pieces out of the two different kinds that I had, Pink Doodle and Green Dragonfly, and pieced them together to create a flower and a stem...simple..and quick!

The "little-more-effort" Card.

Now for this card, it took a bit more effort...but not much! You will need Queen and Co. Felt and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. (I used Pink Ink for this one). I cut a strip of the felt and stuck it to a piece of white cardstock. Then I laid it on some paper towels (because the mist can bet messy - or maybe that is just me!), then I sprayed it until it was fully covered, making sure to get the felt good and wet. Then I took another piece of white card stock and pressed it over the wet felt and pressed. Then I carefully picked up the paper and Viola! I had a "stamped" image! Then I peeled off the felt sticker, which worked as both a stamp and a stencil! I got some pretty cool looking paper out if this technique, I think! Of course, now that I had the cool paper.....I had a hard time coming up with a card that would 'showcase' the paper! I finally came up with this layout...good enough I guess!

They are both super cute! I just ordered some of that Queen and Co. felt on Saturday from her (I think I ordered black with dragonflies or something like that). Great cards!

With cards as beautiful as these I have no doubt that you could rock some scrapbook pages!

Wow! Using the felt to make a background is genius. I still haven't figured out how to use the mist, but you did a beautiful job with it. Both cards are really lovely.

Great job Kisa. I love that you used the design from the felt.
