I have been so blessed crafting wise this month, winning a contest or two and receiving some amazing RAKS, there truly are a lot of special people out there. So last night I sat and made a fairly CAS card, and I desperately wanted to use some ribbon, not to make a bow (still can't master that), but just to use ribbon.
Then this morning I saw that the challenge over at CAS-usual Fridays is to get loopy, and that's what I had made, a ribbon loop, so I'll enter the card there for fun.
Paper: cardstock (PTI); patterned paper (K & Co.)
Ink: Versamark; Vitorian Velvet DI
Stamps: Hero Arts (CL380)
Other: paper flower (HA); black embossing powder; ribbon (PTI - Autumn Rose); brad (The Paper Studio); PTI Die
I used one of the new PTI Edgers dies to die cut the patterned paper. I then adhered a thin strip of their new Autumn Rose cardstock onto the patterned paper and proceeded to take an hour trying to figure out what to do with the ribbon! I settled for a piece folded in half with a flower and brad over it. The paper flower was inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and spritzed with some pearlized water.
The sentiment is embossed with black embossing powder.
I am also going to enter this into the current Simon Says Stamp Challenge, "Anything Goes".
We had some beautiful rain late yesterday afternoon! Oh, it was so wonderful to see! The weather is supposed to be a little more tolerable over the weekend, that's good for my rather long run tomorrow morning! My marathon is in February so our mileage is starting to pick up. These long runs are my favourite runs, I get to just chat with people and enjoy seeing the trees all around me.
Hoping you are having a great day so far!
