Hi friends! Happy Monday! We’re starting a new weekly feature this week called, Studio Monday with Nina-Marie where the fabulous Nina-Marie Trapani will whip up a new design each week featuring a wide variety of products and techniques to inspire you! We hope you love it!
Let’s dive in:
Well hello there everyone, it’s Nina-Marie here welcoming you to Studio Monday! This is the first of our brand new weekly feature here on the Simon Says Stamp blog and each Monday I will be sharing fresh ideas to spark your creativity!
Today I am sharing a great way to use the popular Spring Plush dies and felt to create your own refrigerator magnets! This little cutie would make great gifts to friends and family for them to decorate their own refrigerators with colorful magnets of their own.
I created this magnet felt bunny (or “felties” as I like to call them), by gluing small pieces of magnet onto the backside of the felt bunny. I did not stuff the bunny, since for a refrigerator magnet I felt (no pun intended!) it worked best flat.
Did you know Simon Says Stamp carries beautiful felt to coordinate perfectly with the Spring Plush dies? The felt is a wool-rayon blend that is of high quality and made in Italy. It truly is fabulous to die cut with and I’ve used some of the felt for today’s project.
Of course as a card maker, I had to create a card to go with my magnet bunny! I used the adorable Simon Says Stamp Peeps 6×6 background stamp to create a pink stamped background and then blended ink over top to create a tone-on-tone effect (I used Worn Lipstick distress ink for both the stamping and ink blending). For the sentiment, I used the Lawn Fawn Milo’s ABCs stamp set to create a pun greeting that says “just fur you”.
So to see how I created this magnet bunny, be sure to check out the video below or over on the Simon Says Stamp YouTube channel! If you enjoy, be sure to give the video a “thumbs up” and subscribe to our channel for more creative inspiration!
Thanks so much for spending some time with me and I’ll see you next week for another Make it Monday!
