Loves Rubberstamps Guest Design Project 'Fun with Ribbons' and some fab news!
Good morning everyone, hope you are well! Well I got a huge surprise this morning-the postman delivered a large unexpected parcel-turns out I have won third prize in the Stampin' Up category of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine's Cardmaker of the Year competition 2012! Got a fantastic prize of Stampin Up products-stamps, ink pads, paper, cardstock, ribbon etc! :-)
I am here to show you my Guest design project for Loves Rubberstamps Challenge this week where our theme is 'Fun with Ribbons'. Now we all know I love ribbon so this challenge was so much fun for me! I wanted to make a really cheery card so used one of my favourite stamps-Humphrey's Corner Thinking of you. I coloured this with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, then cut round with a nestie, placing my greeting where Humphrey is looking. I then made my card base with gorgeous papers free from a magazine (one of my fave free stacks) and polka dot ribbon in four different shades of colour complimenting the papers. I then added my Humphrey image and embellished with wooden buttons and yellow die cut butterflies cut from Coredinations card with a Memory Box die. Next I embellished the corner of my card with a large yellow butterfly cut out of the same Coredinations card with a Spellbinders die, which I added gems to.
