Crafty Ribbons Unicorn Shaker frame

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are well! I am here to share a shaker frame I made with a unicorn theme! I found a 3D frame, made the background with Crafty Ribbons unicorn ribbons, sequins, nail caviar in complimenting colours and a strip of pretty paper. I glued a unicorn shape to the glass above it.

Coming home for Christmas

Margreet here with a card to share today.

It's a Christmas card with pretty Coming Home ribbons.
I laid my die a little bit over the double folded cardstock, so it became a double card.
I blended my background with Ranger Distress Oxide Ink Tumbled Glass for the sky. Also used a Dutch Doobadoo cloud stencil.
I die cut the fir border and attached it to the card.
Then I made some splatters with a white Molotow marker, so it would look like snow.
At the bottom I die cut a piece of sparkling cardstock to give it a icy look.
Then I adhered the cute Coming Home Ribbon - Polar Bear ribbon.
At the top you can see the Coming Home Ribbon - for Christmas ribbon.

I hope to have given you some inspiration for your Christmas cards.
Enjoy your week!

Wedding day invitation

Did you ever think about to make wedding day invitations? There is always a perfect ribbon to coordinate with here.

 I was asked about royal blue for my son's wedding and white and silver are really great to mix with.

I used Wedding day ribbon and some Fiskars punches (bird and heart). A simply folded card but with its little effect. In France, we offer to the guests some sugar almonds.

Have a great day!

Happy Day | Scrapbook Layout

Sarah here today with a scrapbook layout featuring the Colour your Days - Maths ribbon.

I knew I wanted to save this ribbon for my boys first day at school, it works perfectly as the rainbow colour would work with any uniform colour combo. I created a montage of photos as he wouldn't stand still and smile nicely for one good shot!

The colour scheme I chose was black red and white with a hint of yellow to match the school badge. I used black card stock and red acrylic paint through a stencil and extra splashed around the stencilled numbers.

Under my photo I layered up lots of patterned papers with foam in between to add a little height. I distressed the edges for more texture and cut out a calendar and typewriter to use as embellishments.

Amongst the papers I stapled in the ribbon and across the top of the page to really show it off in detail. I added stickers and sequins around the photo cluster and calendar and circled the date and wrote the year in red pen. To brighten the background and tie in the ribbon I added white ink splashes over the top.

You can check out the process video of how I created the layout here.

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

Thinking of you

Hi there! I have used the negative after cutting ut oval 
 dies and made two cards in coloured cardstock. First 
I used a beautiful broad ribbon with tulips and sentiments;
see all the ribbons with tulip messages HERE. I also
complemented with some recycled pieces of ribbons 
from clothes and also some lace. Lace are HERE

The second card features only one ribbon, a sheer
purple organza ribbon that is discontinued BUT the same
beautiful design can still be found on the satin ribbon HERE

Remember to use your negatives after die cutting!

Greetings from Sweden and thanks 
for liking Crafty Ribbons like we do!!

Ribbon to the rescue!

I started a new diary this month. 

Nothing fancy, just a cheap one from the supermarket. 

Suited me perfectly, except it would not stay open on the day. 

Ribbon to the rescue! 

You can find the stone ribbon here

A simple band of ribbon with a small piece of elastic in the middle. 

Perfect and so easy 😃

Stones Grosgrain

Good Morning
Wendy L aka Spanish Crafter here to show you a pencil case I made.

I used the stone Grosgrain ribbon in two different colours, as these were the two snips I had left over from another project.
I sewed it onto felt with enough room to hold a Polychromo pencil snuggly.

Very happy with how this turned out as I am not the greatest machinist.
It wil hole all my pencils  and I can take to my Craft club now.

I stitched the felt onto an old Duvet cover and added straps to tie it all together.

Have a good day
