Video: Felt Rose How-To

Hope you all had a good weekend. We spent most of it getting ready for the baby. And we now have diapers. That’s all you really need, right? Ha.

I have a video to share with you today – one I did for the kind folks at Simon Says Stamp. I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Pinecone die with felt to create roses. (Gotta love when a die can be used for two completely different things.) I also used the Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit of the Month. There is a great piece of chevron acetate/transparency in the kit and I show how to create a card window pane with it. Simple.

It’s hard to see that see-through window pane on the front of the card. The video shows it better…

Oh, and see those cute leaves? Those are cut from THIS fabric border sticker from Amy Tan. I LOVE THESE. So perfect with any style flower and there are lots in one package. Just cut them apart.

I also mentioned in the video the smaller Fiskars Trimmer for cardmakers. I never really thought I would like it, but it is the perfect size for cardmakers. (Better price, too.) I use this one all the time now. It has that wire guide like the original larger one. Love…

Thanks for stopping by. Time to get to best and give this overly-stretched belly a rest. Night.

    Love these roses Jennifer, you really did an awesome job with these. They looks so awesome.

  11. I’ve seen Tim create a rose with the pinecone die, but he didn’t use felt, which I love! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Watched this video on SSS yesterday – love that you showed how to make the smaller sizes. You make it look so easy, Jennifer. That chevron acetate looks great used in this way! Yellow and gray is so popular right now. Love this card.

  13. I LOVE the way you used the acetate!

  14. Oh such a clean card those flowers just pop!! You do think “outside the box”…I love that! Hope you got some rest :)

    Saw this over at Simon Says Stamp over the weekend. Loved how you found a dual use for the die and also the great tip for the leaves! Thanks!

  19. Debs

    Hope you are feeling better. Loved the video and alternate idea for die cuts…now you have me looking at mine…hum, what else can I use for making flowers? I do like using real felt for these types of flowers or any embellishment…it has a wonderful feel and look…worth the cost.

  20. Yes, diapers help! LOL The rest will come gradually.

    Thanks for the tutorial! The flowers and your card are amazing!

  35. Superb as usual Jennifer!

    Wonderful card…TFS! I made the felt roses with this die and thought they were sticking up too high for a card and didn’t get a chance to play around with it to make it work, but you just took care of that! LOL This is just another great card all around…Love it! Take care of yourself…sending big hugs.

    What a good way to use a transparency on a card! Also, thanks for the heads up on the smaller Fiskars paper trimmer. I bought the big one based on your recommendation and love it but the cardmaker one (which I just picked up today) will fit better on my overcrowded desk. Can’t wait to make some cards now!

  38. Judi Illingworth

    I have this die and I have used it for making great pinecones. Now I will try the beautiful little flowers. Thanks so much for sharing and I love that battery operated heat gun.

  39. Simply amazing… do you ever sleep?

  40. karen Stephenson

    Jenn, thanks for sharing this beautiful card. Best Wishes in the weeks to come. How exciting to have a new baby coming. I always learn something from your posts. Thanks.

  41. I absolutely adore your videos and creativity. You NEVER seem to run out of great ideas and multi-uses for things. Gotta love that.
    I wish you all the best with the new baby, how wonderful. What a joyous blessing for your family. Another card maker in the family? LOL You need to take care of that baby’s Momma, and rest all you can. Anna
