Art Glitter Fantasy Fiber
Dimensions Needle Felting Kit (Clare found this at Michael's for $3.99 retail before coupon)
Old wool garment or scrap fabric
Snowflake template (Clare used Home Accents Cricut Cartridge)
Tailors chalk or white fabric marking pen
Clare started by taking apart an older wool dress. She used a garment that was at least 80 % Wool tomake felted wool. She washed and dried it at the hottest temperature and then ironed it. She cut it to fit her pillow form, leaving an opening in the back so that she could swap out the pillow cover after the winter season.
HERE she made on how to needle felt with Art Glitter Fantasy film here. Here is how the pillow looks half way done.

paper wreath and had left overs. Just couldn't bring myself to throw them away as they were so pretty! So, I used them to gift tag and embellish this years batch of pumpkin butter. I like to make it for my children's teachers around Thanksgiving to let them know I am thankful for them. Leaf is from Sophie, rosette is Tim Holtz die, stamps are CTMH (sentiment says Grateful for You).

Small Water Color Brush

WhiffOFJoy.com Shopping Willow Stamp
K. Andrew Designs Fashionable Friends Stamp Set (sentiment)
One of Clare's favorite glitter techniques is a simple way to add sparkle strips. It is made with double sided sticky tape and looks great on a card or a page. Clare got this look by just cutting the double sided sticky tape and notching one end. She removed one red side and adhered the tape to the project. She then removed the final side of the red tape protector and pored on the Art Glitter. Clare stamped her shopping girl and colored her with Tombow Markers, using the Blending Mister and a small water color brush. One of Clare's favorite things to do with the Tombow markers is to distress her paper edges! It is difficult for to find distressing inks in brighter colors. So, Clare' often runs the markers along the edge of the paper, using the paint brush side of the Tombow Marker and then blending it with the Blending Mister and a small water color brush. Clare used this technique to get the yellow edge on the plaid paper stripe behind the doily. And this is also a great way to repeat the color in your stamped image.
