I love making cards. Once a month, Julie (wonderful, crafty friend), who sells Stampin’ Up, hosts a stamp-a-stack weekend. I always feel NOT crafty when I attend these things. Julie always is the first to tell you that she follows directions, and will take from scrapbook pages or other ideas and make it her own.
I loved learning this technique. We weaved ribbon around a card stock. I fumbled around a lot this day (my hands were not cooperating), but it was so worth it. Ribbon, card stock, color paper, and a stamp. Simple, and really cute.
And then – change the paper, and ribbon…and you have a completely different look.
This is really great for using up extra ribbon.
And, then this rose:
Tear some paper. Emboss the white outer part of the rose. Water paint (yes, with drops of ink on a wet card). Blot if you wanted it lighter (which I did), but I LOVE the effect. You can also dry with an embosser.
Then Marie (another crafty friend – jealous!) had a workshop, and Julie had to step it up. And we did!
These bubbles are a riot! Fun, and really easy.
These petals almost killed me, but OH did I feel crafty! And, I think I could repeat what I did.
Simple concept, and very easy, just detailed.
