Over the Rainbow


Hello and welcome a new challenge over at The Ribbon Reel this fortnight! Sadly this will be me and Pauline's last week on the DT. I've had a wonderful time on this very talented team and will be sad to go!

Pauline is our host this week and has chosen this bright and beautiful inspiration photo and asks you to create a card / project with all the COLOURS of the RAINBOW,

I've made this sweet and simple new baby card by fashioning some white embossing paste  into clouds and flicking lightly with paint for lots of texture. The kite is made with triangles of felt and Bakers Twine along with knotted Grosgrain ribbon. I've put colourful twine along the bottom of the card and finished with a Candy Stripe button.

Blue Medium Cnady Stripe Button, Bakers Twine in: Cherry Red, Aqua, Cotton Candy Pink, Yellow, Orange and Purple Plum. Grosgrain Centre Stitch in Turquoise all available from The Ribbon Reel.

Damask Delight

Hello and welcome! Over at  The Ribbon Reel it's Debbie's turn as host this week and she asks that you create a card / project inspired by the NEUTRAL PALETTE in the photo and include A DAMASK PATTERN plus LACE / RIBBONS.

I've gone quite simple with this card, starting with layering roughed up Coredinations with kraft card that has been embossed using white embossing paste with a Prima damask mask (!) and tucked some pretty lace behind. Two squares of embossed and sanded Coredinations nestle under this lovely metal sentiment. I've used this gorgeous Bridal White satin ribbon for a lavish bow and glued some pom pom trim around the pearl gem.

 39mm Bridal White Satin Ribbon, Ivory small Pom Pom Trim, 19mm Ivory Lace & Pearls all available from The Ribbon Reel.
