Reverse Confetti February Blog Hop

Hey 'Fetti Fans!   Today is the Reverse Confetti February Blog Hop!    Today I have a couple of felt projects to share using the recently release Patterned Hearts Confetti Cuts and stamp set.  

 First up, I have two Valentine cards to share and then a Valentine's Day Heart garland.    I just love making Valentine's Day projects!  

 I die cut a ton of hearts using the Reverse Confetti Patterned Hearts Confetti Cuts from red, white, hot pink and light pink felt.   I then created the backgrounds for each card, for the small white, I used the Blocked Out Square Panel from white card stock.   I then added my two felt hearts and sewed them thru the middle using a Zig Zag stitch.   I then added the sewed panel to a 4 1/4 inch square card base.

For the next card, I created die cut the Diagonal Stitches Cover Panel from Lead card stock.   I then layered my hearts onto the panel and then sewed them on one side with a Zig Zag stitch.   I stamped a sentiment from Patterned Hearts onto a strip of Midnight card stock and then white heat embossed it and added to the card.   I added my panel to a Lead card base.   

Next up, I am sharing a Valentine garland that I made using more felt hearts.   I have wanted to make one of these for years and the Patterned Heart Confetti Cuts make the perfect layering die cuts for this!    I ended up with 68 felt hearts from the four colors of felt.    

I then created an assembly line with the hearts and started stacking them together.   It came together pretty quickly.  Once I had the small and large hearts paired up, then I started stitching with a straight stitch one right after another.  


I added some Baker's Twine to each end so that I could hang the garland.   I also added another Baker's Twine to the middle so that I could create the swag.   My swag is a little off balance!   I realized after I took the photos that I put the Baker's Twine off center, but easy to fix - I left it as just a loop so that I can take it off or use it to loop up the middle and slide it back and forth wherever it is needed.   :-)  I collect Antique Cookie Jars and these are some of my favorites!   I have another set of favorites in my craft room. 

I already have more plans for next year using the Patterned Hearts Confetti Cuts to create more Valentine decor but I am running out of time for it this year!
