Needle Felted Flowers

A couple of flowers I made using my Simplicity felting machine....
This one is made from merino wool tops, felted with the machine onto green felt, the flower shapes are die cut on my Cuttlebug and felted together on the machine with some wool in the centre.
I made this with a needle felting pack from Claire's ebay store , a gorgeous mix of hand dyed felt, merino tops and wool fibres in a gorgeous mix of colours, really soft and lovely to use.  I hand cut the purple layer and the two upper brown layers are die cut on my Cuttlebug, with a wooden button added to the centre.

90th Birthday Card

A card for a 90 year old man who loves gardening.  The image, sentiment and backing papers are from a Jane Shasky CD from Joanna Sheen.  I stamped the numbers onto a piece of the backing paper, heat embossed them and cut them out with a Spellbinders die.
The flowers are punched, scrunched up with card candi added, the leaves are stamped and cut out.

I'd like to share this with Make It Monday's linky party.

A Couple of Valentine's Cards

Made this card for a neighbour to give to her husband using papers and image from the Furry Friends CD from Joanna Sheen.

I stuck the image onto some Bazzill card cut out with a Spellbinders die and embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, the hearts are also a Spellbinders die, and I added some card candi to the bottom right corner.

The backing paper for this one is from Funky Hand's I Heart You download, the large pink heart is cut with a Spellbinders die embossed with the Cuttlebug script folder,

 I knitted the hearts and tied buttons to the centre with hemp twine, and added some garden twine and printed the sentiment on a Dymo machine.
