CCC #46... birthday wishes

Hello from soggy Washington!! Tuesday is here and that means time for a brand new CASology challenge!!  This week our cue word is "furry"... so many directions you could go with this one for sure!  This week we welcome as our guest designer the amazingly talented, Lucy!!    All the challenge deets can be found here.   Now... on to my card.




I wanted to use some felt for my project and to stamp on it, but found that the stamps I wanted to use just weren't working very well with the felt and honestly stamping on felt isn't the easiest thing to do as the ink had a tendency to rub off even after it was dry.  If anyone knows of a good ink to use on felt, I would love to know.  So, it was plan "B" for me!  I used three different SU! sets for my card:  Fox & Friends, Hearts A Flutter and So Happy for You.  I stamped the stripped banner from Hearts A Flutter using Crumb Cake ink and then die cut each one using the matching die.  The monkey, lion and fox from Fox & Friends were stamped using So Saffron, Riding Hood Red and Chocolate Chip inks, trimmed out and layered on the banners.  A bit of kraft colored baker"s twine was tied in a bow on each end and then adhered to the card.  Once the glue had dried each banner was attached to the baker's twine and then the sentiment was stamped using black ink. 

Thanks for stopping by... I cannot wait to see what "furry" related ideas all you super talented papercrafters come up with for this challenge!! In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth, Judy, Maureen, and Meghan
and our guest designer, Lucy!

I haven't found the secret to stamping on felt yet either! I'm a few miles north of you and we seem to be experiencing "June-uary". I'm not a fan of cold rainy weather. A sweet little card!

I've never thought about stamping on felt... I presume stax on would work ok for outline stamps!!! Not sure about solid images though!!
Your animal banner is rather sweet... It'll be an interesting week to browse the gallery :0)

I love that you chose 3 furry creatures for your card! The banner is fabulous, and the color palette is so soft and perfect! Love this card!

Sally Traidman did a video for Hero Arts on stamping with felt, and she used 'Dye Ink': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9L1PUSdzmZ4
