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.

Seam binding comes in lots of colours and is very easy to tie into a nice bow.

I used two different Groovi Plates to make the centre piece.

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!
