This month for FANTASTIC RIBBONS it's all about RUFFLES...
Now, what can be better than Grosgrain ribbon ????? POLKADOT GROSGRAIN !!!! I love it !!!
Here I've used the Polkadot Grosgrain in red with white dots and cream with red dots.
Take a length and do a running stitch along one edge, keep it close to the edge !, do this on both ribbons
I then die cut a piece of Kraft card stock, laid a doily on it and gave it a light spritz with Shimmerz, just to give it a bit of "texture" and stamped a sentiment on. Attach this to the front of your card. Using a strong double sided tape attach the ribbons to the card stock

Then taking some twine, wrap this around the card tying off at the front, this takes the eye away from the join of the ribbons !

I then took a couple of buttons, and tied them together with more twine...Love Twine !!! Keith.... we NEED twine, if you're reading this !!! and finished off with a bow, glue this to the ribbons, using Glossy Accents and "popped" a couple of hat pins in to finish it off !!

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
