FANTASTIC RIBBONS......

Oh Boy..... I love these ribbons, in fact I just LOVE RIBBONS !!!!!
My blog post for Fantastic Ribbons this month is about Backgrounds, that's right, how to use your ribbons to make a background.
Very rarely do I do a DL card, but I felt this just "worked"
Start off with a DL base card, next taking some Bazzill Kraft I die cut two hearts from a piece just smaller than the base card.
Then taking 3 of your favourite ribbons from your Fantastic Ribbons stash, put some adhesive on the back of the heart outline and start sticking your ribbon strips on, this is fab for using up all those little bits and pieces that "we can't possibly throw away"
It looks a bit scruffy from the back, but don't worry thats going to be covered !! To highlight the hearts and give them a little vintage feel, go around the edge (on the front) with little white "stitches"
Tie a piece of ribbon and twine to the front of the Kraft and adhere to the white card base. Finishing off with a gorgeous button, well it would be rude not to !!! My only dialemma here was what button to choose...
 At the moment I'm into teals and greens so I used :-
Centre Stitch 54062
Stitched Grosgrain 677872
Gingham 54078
But this would work for soooo many colours, so go get your ribbons and start creating

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
