Puffy Felt Heart SCS Challenge

The "Free For All" Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers today, is to get all warm and fuzzy.  Now, living in California, I don't get an opportunity to wear mittens or sweaters because it's just too warm for them here.  So, when I read "fuzzy", I thought felt.  And since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, I thought I'd make my daughter a "warm and fuzzy Valentine".  

I just diecut a Heart (Spellbinders) out of white cardstock, and framed it with a Postage Stamp die (Spellbinders).  I then tucked a piece of red felt behind the negative heart space, poked it through a bit and stuffed a half of a cotton ball behind it to poof it out a bit.  I then backed it with another piece of white cs and sewed around the heart...poorly...but thankfully my daughter isn't as much as a perfectionist as I am, and will accept the sewing flaw.  I just didn't have the time to start all over.  *sigh*.

Anyway, lastly I added a sweet "love you" sentiment from the Waltzingmouse set Compact Family, a trio of ribbons, some twine and a little button.

That's it for today's project.  It was fun working with felt again.  I hadn't done that in awhile.

Thanks for visiting.  I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
Happy Stamping!

So in love with this idea and one I will definitely have to case if that's okay with you. Stunning in it's simplicity and design. I am sure your daughter will love it and forgive your sewing ..... I didn't notice anything wrong.

Tosh, your puffed heart is so pretty! Is that like saying "my heart beats only for you?" The three tiny ribbon pieces draw my eye right to your adorable heart, with the sweet twine. It almost feels like candy! hugs, de
