This week the challenge is to use embossing paste for backgrounds. I don't have any cover plates (what!?) so I used a stencil from dreamweaver & also used spray inks from dreamweaver to color my embossing paste. I was shooting for an ombré look- sort of worked ;)
I also used the die from pretty peonies 3 times with DCWV paper to create the sentiment & the stamp is also from that set. A bit of May Arts burlap string in parrot green & a few sequins finish it off.
This month the PTI hop challenged us to use a photo for inspiration- here's my take:
I also tried to incorporate the 'no outlines' watercolor treatment as featured in this week's MIM challenge, but my ink shows too much... I've got another one in the works for that. I used my water pen & fresh ink to fill the button card in.
I covered the entire card front with the Xyron tape runner adhesive then added the focal card & LOTS of burlap string (red, yellow, parrot green, light blue, lavender) and a little twisted burlap string (orange & grape)!
Thought this would be a fun card to give to my husband. The new 5" tiffany blue tulle looks great with the stickers from the Simple Stories kit & the 3x4 element! Xyron tape runner holds things in place!
Who wouldn't love this card? I used some of the patterned paper from the kit, topped it with a 3x4 elelment tied with the new 1/4" tiffany blue silk & added a sticker from the kit. Again used that awesome Xyron tape runner!
Now, of course, we have a chance for you to win some goodies of your own! Make sure to leave a comment for your chance at one of 3 sets of prizes up for grabs, each composed of the following:
And another DCWV panel attached to a plain gift bag makes it pretty wow! Satin pleats (5/8") along the bottome & 3/8" satin along the top- again using the xtreme permanent adhesive. A 1.5" satin bow tied at the top finishes it off!
Now you KNOW there is going to be a fab prize!!
The prize pack:
a stack from DCWV
a spool of ribbon from May Arts
Xtreme Adhesive, Power Tabs, Removable Adhesive and Fastener Tabs from Tombow
3 prize packs up for grabs, to win comment on each blog & like our Facebook pages.
First up is a fun card I made using the 'Fanciful Frames' & 'Hats & Staches' from Basically Bare. I used the inside of one of the frames as a mask & sprayed with Art Anthology 'Waimea Bay'. Then I got to work on covering that frame in May Arts Black Denim ribbon- I LOVE how it turned out!
Next up another card with 'Hats & Staches'- this time I misted with Art Anthology's 'Heart'.
I tied some May Arts red, white & blue Baker's twine (funny that the French flag is the same color as ours!) & stamped 'MERCI' (using stamps from Practicing Creativity's 'carved love' set) below. This one makes me chuckle!
Last up I used the 'Happy Little Tree' set & Art Anthology Velvet paint in 'limeaid'.
The card base is embossed with a woodgrain pattern.
The 'grass' and 'apples' are both created using the Mini pom pom ribbon (olive & red).
Sentiment is from Lawn Fawn 'A good apple.'
Now you know there are prizes when the Ribbon Lady is involved in a hop!
Be sure to leave comments on all the blogs for more chances to win!
3 prizes up for grabs of: 1 spool of ribbon and $25 worth of good each for Art Anthology & Basically Bare!
I'm mainly a SAHM to my amazing 8 yo daughter. I've been married to a fantastic man for 13 years (Wow!)- and he loves my craftiness (I mentioned he was fantastic, right?!).
I think I may be addicted to paper. And ribbon.
