Feathers with Silk Ribbon

Morning everyone.
Ali here today to share my WIP.

When finished my owl will be 19cm high, the largest embroidery piece I have created for a loooong time.
First, I selected the colours I wanted to play with from our 4mm silk ribbons here.
I am using the same style of embroidery as our Robin kit (here)

and Blue Tit (here).

Silk ribbon creates wonderful feathers!

Have fun

Ha-bee Birthday

Hi, Margreet here.
I created a card with the sweet digital stamp Ha-bee Birthday! from Gerda Steiner Designs
 I started with die cutting using Sizzix hexagons.
Then I used distress ink Pumice Stone and the Dutch Doobadoo Mask Art chicken wire on the yellow cardstock.

Finished with the lovely Gnome Ribbon - Bees from Crafty Ribbons
Stamped and colored the sweet image with copics.
Added Stickles on the wings and distressed the edges with yellow ink.

Decorated fine chocolate bars

I went to the Lindt sample sale knowing I would never eat 
 all I bought by myself but had the idea of decorating a few
and give away. So off I went and here are the first ones:

Ribbon above: Sheer puff dots in pink
and also this: Bling in pink. 

Loving the Bling ribbon above and also the 
sentiment ribbon in white. 

 This last ribbon is discontinued, I'm sorry for that. 
But I used this last piece I had for a fancy knot.
So come on, let your fantasy lead you to make
some personalized chocolate cards!!

Craft Inspector | Scrapbook Layout

Sarah here today with a scrapbook layout featuring the Colour your Days Pencil Ribbon.

I had a cute picture of my kitten exploring one of my boxes of craft supplies and thought the ribbon would work so well for it.

I used some rainbow patterned paper for my background to match my ribbon and added a little dimension with texture paste and blue paint.

For my paper cluster I added layers of tissue, patterned paper and stickers. I twisted together some aqua and pink Ric Rac and stapled it amongst the layers for extra texture and interest.

I added some turquoise gems and white splashes of paint around the edge of my layout and tucked some pencil ribbon behind the top of the photo cluster.

Finally I added some extra ribbon below my title to balance with the piece above the photo.

Thanks for joining me and have a happy crafty day!!

Groovi Seam Binding

Good Morning

Wendy L (Spanish Crafter) here to show you my card using Seam Binding in a gorgeous shade of Mint Green and I combined it with a darker shade of Ricrac.

Good morning everyone!
Margreet here with a DT card for Crafty Ribbons.

I made a flamingo card.
At the top and bottom of the card you can see the flamingo ribbons from the Animal Cuties series.
This photo is somewhat darker, so you can see the shimmer of the stamped flamingos better.
It is made with a Magnolia stamp. I stamped it randomly with Versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
Then I die cut some flamingos. Eyes are made with Nuvo Crystal Drops. 
More info on my blog.
Enjoy your Sunday!

Morning ribbon fans.

Ali here today, full of a summer cold.  
Sorry not felt like crafting for a while, so thought I would show you

Very simple.

Anchor | Altered Art Project

Sarah here today with an altered art anchor.

I love nautical themed crafts and there are some amazing ribbons over in the shop which are perfect for sun sea and sand projects.

To give my anchor a base for lots of embellishments and paint I gave it a couple of base coats of gesso.
I added nautical themed embellishments, stones and netting followed by some lovely pearly paints.

As it was quite pale and shimmery I added some darker inks to add depth and highlight the embellishments.

I created a paper cluster on a shutter and created a visual triangle around it using flowers and gems.

I added a cute bow and tail to the anchor in thin striped ribbon and draped white eyelash ribbon all around the project.

For more details you can check out my process video here.

Thanks for joining me and have a Happy Crafty Day :)

Numbers & Pebbles

Wendy L, aka Spanish Crafter here to show you a card I have made for my Granddaughters Birthday.

I used a cute LOTV Topper from one of their pads.

I highlighted the number 7 with a Hexagon diecut, from the -Silent Night Ribbon,  as she is 7 this time!!!!

I also used the Grosgrain Pebble ribbon as the colours matched very well and I think it helped make  the ribbon stand out.

All matted onto Butterfly embossed card.

Seam Binding Groovi

Good Morning

Wendy L (Spanish Crafter) here to show off some Seam binding available HERE.
There are so many colours available that you will always find one to match and it ties into wonderful bows and you can crinkle it too to give it a Shabby Chic look.
I used the Groovi System from Clarity to do the parchment work.
Any odd pieces of parchment left, I punch flowers out to add as and when I need to.

I used the seam binding to add a charm too, as it is fine enough to  pass through the hole.

I have used the Fiskars Non Stick Micro Tip Scissors to fussy cut the embellishments and the Fiskars Heart Hand Punch to add tiny magical hearts to my daughter's photo, she loves dressing up and this is her Anna costume!
