TRR#47 - Let's Ruffle


Good morning lovely peeps!

Welcome to another fabulous challenge from The Ribbon Reel.  Lenet has chosen the most YUMMY photo to inspire your creativity - isn't it divine!  All you have to do to join us is use RUFFLES and be inspired by the COLOURS in the photo. Great fun! You can find all the details you need on The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog :)


I used some absolutely gorgeous Ribbon Reel products on my card today, the white sheer box pleat  and the pink satin pleat ribbon are just perfect for this challenge! I teamed them with some cute 9mm Candy Pink centre stitch grosgrain, a lilac seam binding bow and some beautiful pink roses.


The 'Friend' sentiment is a stamp from the 'Roses in Bloom' set and the swirly flourishes are from 'Rescue Remedies' - both by Waltzingmouse Stamps.  I used the Woodgrain background stamp to create the distressed effect on the Tando Creative chipboard frame.  I painted the frame with cream acrylic paint and then stamped the WMS woodgrain over the top in Distress Ink.

Do play along if you have the chance and don't forget to visit all the amazing Ribbon Reel ladies to see their beautiful creations for the Ruffle challenge - you won't be disappointed :)

Have a great week!

SSBC#5 - A Scor-Pal Easter Project

Hi, I hope that you are all having a great week so far?  Flu has hit the Berry household and we've all been quite poorly. It took double the time to create my project today as I don't have a lot of spare energy as I still seem to be fighting the virus but am slowly getting back to full speed again.

So, onto todays project and I want to welcome you to another wonderful Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge...

The Serendipity Stamps DT has been challenged us to create a pretty project for Easter using some of the amazing projects available here from the Scor-Pal website. **although our projects have an Easter theme, your entries do not have to be - but please remember to use a Serendipity stamp, die or free digi download somewhere on your creation**

I used the 'Candy Bar Card tutorial' to create a card containing a bar of Swiss Chocolate.  I used the gorgeous bunny from Serendipity Stamps Easter Greetings Cling Set to decorate the front.

I stamped the cute bunny using Memento ink and then added Spring Colours using my copics.  I stamped the sentiment using Celery green ink and then went back in and stamped again in chocolate brown ink to give a shadowy effect.  The pretty aqua gingham ribbon is from my stash and I added some white mini ric-rac, lilac bakers twine, dotty button and sweet easter flowers from The Ribbon Reel along the bottom as well.


and here's a shot of the all important chocolate inside!


I hope that you will join us for this challenge. You can find all the details HERE on the Serendipity Challenge Blog and don't forget that you can find lots more wonderful projects on the rest of the Serendipity DT blogs.
