When it's a KNOT !!!
This month for Fantastic Ribbons the design team are doing all about bows, now, as a scrap store owner and teacher, I know loads of you just want to run away at the thought of doing a bow, but I wanted to let you know that it's OK, you don't have to hang your head in shame... you can cheat !!!
I personally think knots look just as cute as bows, especially for mens cards. That's not to say you can't get some exquisite bows out of these ribbons.... I could have gone on and on and on :) :)
For this card I used the Gingham and Satin Edged Organza, now this isn't just any old gingham, oh no... the softness for a start makes it so easy to work with, and it's got a gorgeous little loopy edge (I love this) and the Organza will work with anything, perfect for that "filling in" piece. I do like things in threes.
This card is great for using up your scraps, and when you need something quick. You don't have to go all the way round with the ribbon, just stick about a 1/4" to the back of the cardstock either side, bring to the front and tie, no point wasting it!!

Products Used :
Gingham 54078

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
