Warm fuzzies


The theme for this month's challenge at Hero Arts is birthdays. I'm a huge fan of felt, so I decided to make a felt cupcake.

Hero Arts came out with Frame Cuts--steel dies that match some of their stamps. I used the cupcake die from the Edge Frame set and die cut the cupcake and "frosting" out of some wool felt. I stitched the pieces together, added a face and some French knots as decoration. The blush was added with a Memento marker.

My kawaii cupcake was born.


I applied three different colors of washi tape and attached the cupcake. Stamped the fuzzy sentiment, added a felt heart, rounded off one corner and the card was done.

I had so much fun making the cupcake, and the dies cut through felt like butter. I may die cut and stitch a few more, just to have them on hand.

Hope you're having a great week so far. Thanks, always, for visiting!
