This week the MIM challenge was to use those tiny stamps within an image- or cluster confetti stamp them. I die cut a butterfly from butterfly dreams to use as a stencil. most are from filled with joy- one of the tiny flowers is from wreath for all seasons.
I like the look of this technique, although I'm not so sure about the colors I used.
For my first project I used the net across a
cardstock panel & wove 1.25" white silk through it. This is a wired ribbon so it made it easy to wrap around the cardstock.
Next I wrapped it around a bottle for a pretty
way to gift a bottle of wine. I used matching burlap string to tie up the ends & added an Artful Accent kraft tag. This would be fun to layer as well, but I
wanted to show how great it looks on its own!
love how this ribbon adds so much texture to a gift bag!
Last up I used it as a
mask & spritzed an Artful Accent kraft tag with
ink. I topped it with a stamped layer of vellum so that the pattern would still
show, then folded a piece of the 2.5" open weave burlap net in half &
machine sewed it in place with the vellum layer. I finished the tag off with
more 1.25" white silk & natural burlap string.
As you can see, I really enjoyed working with this new ribbon!

This week the challenge was to use PTI cover plates & embossing paste to create. How lucky am I that Erin sent me several that she'd cut out! I put the chevrons to work here, with gold embossing paste from Dreamweavers.
That gold is too much. When it was wet I wasn't sure how metallic it would look so I sprinkled some of the Dreamweaver f/x powder in a few places. Turns out it didn't need it, but added a cool texture.
I cut some tickets out of vellum, stamped with just the ticket & heat embossed with black powder.
Another PTI challenge entry! This one was to use blue ombre on our project.
My daughter was working on a school project with watercolors so I took advantage & colored a panel with blue myself- then sprinkled salt on top for the spotted effect (all those art docent lessons are giving me fun ideas!)
I'm mainly a SAHM to my amazing 10 yo daughter. I've been married to a fantastic man for 15 years (Wow!)- and he loves my craftiness (I mentioned he was fantastic, right?!).
I think I may be addicted to paper.
I KNOW I am addicted to ribbon.
