SAF 2014: 1920's

Here's my take on the PTI SAF 2014 glitter & rhinestone challenge inspired by the 1920's:

The focal panel is pink paislee; ribbon is May Arts 1.5" silky crush in pewter.
I do love me some glitter & bling- fun to combine them!

SAF 2014: 1940's

I was only able to get a couple SAF projects done-
All stamps/paper PTI. May Arts Baker's twine. This was so fun- I love creating stamped patterns!

MIM #176: Embossing Paste Backgrounds- take 2

Another shot at the embossing paste background for this week's challenge. 
I used a dreamweaver stencil & spray ink again to color the paste. 
The die is cut from DCWV paper 3 times, the stamped portion is heat embossed on vellum. 

1" grosgrain/satin edged ribbon in light turquoise is machine stitched on the edge & a few sequins finish it off. 

MIM #176: Embossing paste backgrounds

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.

MIM #175: Creative Card Borders

This week the challenge for MIM was to use non-border dies to create a creative border.

 I used Pretty Peonies stamp set, and Momento Luxe inks in pistachio & morocco on a vintage cream panel.

The ribbon is May Arts 3/4" parrot green velvet/corduroy topped with copper ombre raffia. Speaking of raffia- did you see May Arts came out with a bunch of new raffia colors? They are fab!

I love the look of the dies off the edge- very fancy!
Hard to believe I'm not posting this at 11:30pm Sunday night too! WOOHOO!
Hope you're having a great weekend!

May Arts Fall/Winter 2014 New Release Week: Flag Banner Ribbon

Welcome to Day 2 of New Release Week!
I'm featuring the 1" adhesive flag banner ribbon!
I started with a simple card:

Next up I added some DCWV patterned paper, brads, Graphic45 alphabet stamps & Staz-On Ink:

The adhesive makes adding them to toothpicks super quick:

And perfect  for decorating treats:

The reason you read this far- Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake decoration! Attached to skewers; I stuck them to themselves so it's cute on both sides of the cake:

Added a bit of burlap string:

Yes, I know that salted caramel center is distracting you from the amazing banner of ribbon.

Last up- we decorated a plain white t-shirt! We used the adhesive backing to place the ribbon then stitched with coordinating ribbon to make sure it would survive washing.

Hope this gives you lots of ideas! Here's the line-up this week- be sure to leave comments because the Ribbon Lady loves to share ribbon! ;)

Here’s the giveaway:
3 prizes of 1 spool each from our new releases.  That’s 3 chances to win!
