Wow it's been awhile since I last posted, it's been bitter sweet to stop blogging. I don't have the motivation to craft but I have more time to focus on more important things. I hope everyone had a great Christmas. It was quiet around here alot of people were sick and unable to make it or couldn't get time off work to come from out of town. I have the time off work until the 2nd of January which is a nice break from all the kids (although my daughter keeps asking when they are coming back). Like I said in my last post I have 2 Guest Designer spots that I had already promised to do before I made the decision to stop blogging so today is the first of those posts.It's a Guest Designer for 3 Girl JAM Challenge Blog . They have a challenge going on "Anything Goes". I decided to create a centre step card and used two colours of the beautiful crinkle ribbon that Julie and her daughter's sell, Baby Blue and Ice Blue.
What I Used:
3 Girl JAM: Baby Boy & Ice Blue Crinkle Ribbon
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps : January Carnations & Bethany's Birthday Wishes
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
Spectrum Noir: TB1 & TB2
Bic Mark It Markers: Green
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Baby's Breath
Spellbinders Nestabilites: Big Scalloped Ovals (SM)
Martha Stewart Border Punch: Lace Doily
Needle and thread
I had never made this type of flower out of the ribbon but it was very easy. You just weave the needle and thread through the bottom of the ribbon and pull it tight to form the flower, stitch the two ends together, glue a button to the centre and there you go! In January I have another non card project that I have made using this type of flower for my second Guest Designer spot. Head on over to 3 Girl JAM Challenge Blog and join in the fun!
Have A Great Day!
