DT card for Crafty Ribbons July 14th 2016


Hiya peeps

Its time for the new challenge over at Crafty Ribbons where the theme
is "Christmas with Ribbon"

My make for this challenge is a 6x6 inch card with the
Classic Christmas - MC Snowflake (9mm) ribbon
just a single line of ribbon using a slit in the fold of the base card to
thread the ribbon through so it can be secured on the inside front at both ends.
The teal glittered card was cut using brand new release items
from Tonic Studios and its called Candy Cane Frame Die Set (1371E). You can
just about make out the candy canes with a bow on them. What I did though also,
was to cut another set of the dies but using silver mirri card and then I mounted
the silver centre piece, being the rectangle complete with stocking in the middle of
the teal die cut frame. I love the whole clean setting that the glitter frame and
single row of ribbon gives to the base white linen effect card.
Watch out for the other 2 new frames in the near future.......................

DT card for Crafting Musketeers where the theme is Babies!!!



Hiya peeps
Its time for a challenge theme of "Babies"....

You can find that challenge on our
Crafting Musketeers #39
to see our gorgeous projects from the DT.

The white card stock is from Papermill Direct, the ribbons are

The image is from the lovely Di's Digi Stamps and its
called Baby Bear Scales. Its a darling image to colour using my alcoholic marker pens.
I matt & layered different backing papers, all in beautiful shades of blues, with, the 2 main top
papers in baby boy paper.
The white paper, that the image is printed on is just plain but not the cheapest,
photocopier paper. At the moment I have used is Office Depot colour printing paper
(from Viking Office Supplies).l found the best way to order is to buy at least 3 - 5 reams
(packets) at a time.
The rest of the items on this card are from my own stash.
Im so pleased how this 8x8 inch card has turned out.
I would like to see your comments below ;) x
