Wow - talk about bling!!!
Believe it or not all of this striping is made from white satin ribbon that I
inked and attached to cardstock.
The inspiration for this card came from
The Shabby Tea Room's Just Pretty Challenge.
You had to use the colors in the photo AND include Stripes and A Flower.
Since I didn't have any stripped paper to match the colors, I simply
MADE my own.
The idea for the Thank You was from the
Pixie Studio's challenge
(that I missed by not posting this card yesterday when I was supposed to - duh!)
I used 1/8" scor tape (scor-pal.com) in between the ribbon and added the glitter.
So easy and it stays on so much better than glue.
All this ribbon (striping) certainly works for the
FOST (Friends of Speedy TV Challenge) #56 where they wanted
Creative Uses for Ribbon
(wonder how often it is used to make striped paper?).
The ribbon also worked for Paper Pretties ribbon challenge.
Too bad I missed that one too - (wow) -
it works for their new challenge to
Try A New Technique.
while visiting their site I found out I won Challenge 241 and get some
goodies from their store.
I'm a happy little crafter!!!
Just as soon as I finish this post I bet ya'll know where I'm headed.
A little "dry" embossing here with a Cuttlebug folder.
The sentiment was embossed with white powder and then embossed again with glitter.
This was a great tip since I only own 3 colors of embossing powder and was limited to what I could do. This little tidbit of info allowed me to use my existing inventory of "stuff" to a much greater extent. I just found this technique on Gink K's site and had to try it. You can see the video here
I die cut the flowers out of white cardstock, inked them with the same Memento Angel Pink that I used on the ribbon and the card and added some Flamingo Liquid Pearls(rangerink.com)
Assembled the flower and added more liquid pearls to the center of it and put it all together.
