GD for Crafty Ribbons




The lovely Ali from Craft Ribbons asked me if I would like to do a Guest Designer spot on FB,  now who is going to say no to that !!

 So here is my project,  a wrist cuff made with the Butterfly Ribbon Pack























Ribbon Pack - Butterfly

It's very easy to make from a strip of denim cut from the leg of an old pair of jeans ( mine  kindly donated by my brother )


























Everything is hand sewn with invisible thread. From my stash I cut a piece of knitting lace in half and added a piece top and bottom, then a piece of the check ribbon. Next I gathered a piece of sheer ribbon and attached it down the middle. Then I fussy cut some of the butterflies out adding two together and attaching then on top of the gathered ribbon. Finished off with two rows of pearls and two hooks and eyes to fasten the cuff.

Think of all the fabulous Craft Ribbons  YOU COULD  use to make this !!

Up for a challenge ??

 Then hop over to House Mouse and Friends as we have a new challenge for you !!

 
I've made a card with a hidden message......
 
 
 Just pull the cloud and watch Monica fly revealing the hidden message  !!
 
 
This super cute Stampendous HMD is called "Umbrella Ride" and Monica is really enjoying it !!
 
Love making inky cloud backgrounds as everyone turns out different. Stamped and coloured Monica using Copics and then fussy cut her out attaching her to the slider. Punched out a few clouds inking all the edges. Finished off with some pattern paper, lace and ribbon with heart button.

Bright and breezy


Well we appear to be enjoying a bit of summer at last although I don't fair very well in heat, but love the sunshine !!

Made some more bright cards using the Altenew set called "Beautiful Day"




  I love the multi layering and masking off to make your own designs and with postage costs they are only one layer, but colourfu and have such an impact !!  The sentiment stamps are by Woodware.

Hope you all have a fantastic BH weekend !!

Pug love....



 Just adored the free papers and border stamps that came with Junes Making Cards magazine. I don't usually like the free stamps that come with craft magazines, but the border stamps are fantastic !!

 I've used them to stamp on the papers and as borders, then made some rosettes, stamped paw prints onto die cut hearts, added some ribbon, dollies and pearls.




Whatever you have planned for the weekend...have fun !!

Patch Bunny



Rain rain go away comes to mind......is it raining where you are ??

anyhoo....

Had to have this Woodware bunny stamp called "Patch Bunny" as soon as I saw it seeing I am a big bunny fan !! Its really an Easter set of stamps, but as you can see I've made a Birthday card by masking out the "easter" on one of the sentiment stamps that come with the set and adding Birthday instead.




























I've stamped onto water colour card and coloured using distress inks. The bunny would be fab paper pieced which is my next card I think !!

hugs Diane xx
