  55. ok so I thought I would watch for a second time because I love your videos so much……and guess what I wasn’t let down it was better than the first time….thank you

  56. What a great idea to put these cuties on a card! You could given cut them out of cardstock. Love your out of the box creativity.

  57. This is a great idea. If you don’t like to sew or don’t want to take the time – use them
    without stitching. They look wonderful that way too.
    thanks for the idea.

  58. What beautiful cards. I love how you chose not to add embroidery floss to the cutouts. They look amazing. Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway.

  59. Adorable, sweet and I can see so many uses for this release. Thank you for sharing your creative genius!

  60. Now you’re talking my language. I love cards and I love how you’ve chosen to use the felt on them. I may just have to get me some of that.

  61. just as sunny as usual. Your tutorials are always so much fun as well as informative. Those are totally adorable.

  62. I love that you’ve added the plush pieces to a traditional card, giving it another layer of feeling. Super cute!

  63. Love what you made on this hop, great colours and ideas to make a card as well as other options you mention in your video.

  64. Loved the idea. I make cards, not stuffed toys but these are adorable ON cards. The bunny would be perfect on a Christmas tag holding a candy cane wearing his cute scarf.

  65. Cute cards, Laura…so festive! Does this mean you don’t sew or are you just making sure we know felt and stitched dies can be used on cards? Fun!

  66. Interesting cards. I would have loved to seen the animals stitched around the border though! I think that would have added to the card!

  67. Your creativity in using these on cards is awesome! Love the background colors too. Thank you for great inspiration!

  68. I love this felt! It is so colorful and I’ve never seen felt in these colors before. I like what you did. You put them on a card. That is so cool! I wish there was a way you could use the dies without a die cutting machine because I would love to do this! The ones with the holes remind me of something we have in our preschool. They have holes like this and the kids practice lacing with shoe laces. I also love how you used my favorite color yellow for the chick.

  69. I just recently found your blog and have spent many lovely hours going through your projects and videos. Thank you for the inspiration!

  70. I’m not much of a sew-er (like at all) so I loved that you showed an alternative way of using these dies 🙂 x

  71. Love your adorable cards! And love the ombre gingham backgrounds!! Perfect for Easter and I can see so many other uses for this stamp. On my wish list. Thanks too for sharing another great video.

  72. My grandmother used to make little felt ornaments and sold them at craft shows… 30 years ago! Glad to see this fun idea trending again! She cut everything by hand. We now have these fabulous dies!

  73. Really cute! Versatile and adorable! I have so much embroidery floss just waiting for these projects! 🙂

  74. Completely smitten with these plush sweeties; who wouldn’t have their heart melted in receiving something soft and cuddly! Bunnies = love! Thank you for creating such fabulous showcases, with the added bonus of your video…happy guaranteed!

  75. Adorable dies, Gingham stamp…Amazing! I can create my own gingham paper…..One of my favorite Simon Says Stamps release.

  76. I love the new dies! They are just as adorable with just the stitch holes as well as stitched! Cute Cards!!!

  77. You always totally crack me up, Laura! I just love all of your videos!!! These cards are too cute, and I also think these cutie patootie images would be so great for baby cards! Love them!! 😀
