ribbons, ribbons, ribbons!

One of the other challenges for the DT on ILWS this one you had to include five ribbons either all the same or different. I have used three different ribbons to create the effect for my card. I have tied knots in two of the ribbons running up the edge of the card and added a bow to the left hand corner of the card. I have used a forever friends image to decorate the card. The cardstock used is cetainly celery and I have inked the edges of the card with certainly celery. I have not included a setiment on the card as the ribon that I have used at the bottom of the card has Merry Christmas stamped on it, there is a close up of that!

I hope you like the card - thanks for looking and Merry Christmas - Debbi x x x

ILWS sketch...

I think I am too late to join in to become a design team member over on ILWS but I have completed the sketch anyway this morning... I have used DSP from the SU Simply Scrapping kit Christams Jingle and also some of the certainly celery cardstock that is included. I have stamped an image from my sneek peek SAB set Happy moments, this has been water coloured in certainly celery and real red. I have stamped two images and then cust one out to build the image up (you had to include something 3D) I then added some glitter to add a bit of sparkle. I also stamped a greeting from Old Fashioned Christmas and added three brads to decorate. I inked the edges of the image in certainly celery and reounded the corners.
I hope you like the card and thanks for looking - Merry Christmas! Debbi x x x

Look brayering Langara shown me!

Ok So when it comes to crafting I will try my hand at anything and after a couple of go's normally get the hang of it - with brayering this didn't happen and each time I got my brayer out it ended up looking like a deck chair - the stripes that I managed to create were amazing! Anyhow a couple of weeks ago at a crafty evening Helen fellow demonstrator brought her brayer and made me have a go! Here is the result. Brayered on whisper white starting the colours light to dark. I cannot remember the colours I have used (ooopps) and I have then stamped one of the trees from the Stampin' Up set Lovely as a Tree. I am impressed at the improvement that I have made... Not perfect I know but the effect is there - and seriously if you had seen my previous attempts you would understand what I was talking about. I will try and post again over the weekend with some of the Christmas cards that I have made and also the box and set of cards that was completed at my class on Tuesday!
Thanks for Looking and a Merry Christmas - Debbi x x x
