All That Scraps Challenge ~ Crinkled Ribbon

 

Happy Wednesday!   Sorry for the lack of posts the past few days, we’re working on the next Magnolia Ink magazine . . . the Christmas edition ~ it’s sooo hard to be working on Christmas projects when it’s 90 degrees outside!   🙂     

Our challenge today at the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge blog is to add some Crinkled Ribbon to your card or project.   This type of ribbon seems to be all the rage right now, especially on vintage and shabby chic projects.   

I googled Crinkled Ribbon and found lots of tutorials on how to dye and “crinkle” ribbon yourself.   Apparently, it works best with a rayon material ribbon generally used for seam binding.    Here’s one link if you’d like to take a peek  Crinkled Ribbon Tutorial.    But NO, I did NOT make my own … I cheated and used some rose ribbon from American Crafts that I HAD to have awhile ago, but hadn’t used yet!!      (Yes, I think the term “hoarder” is appropriate here!)  

 

 

For my card, I’ve used the adorable Rose Emma from the Take a Seat collection from C.C. Designs.   She’s actually sitting on a flourish(ey) stamped image from the Tim Holtz  Stampers Anonymous Nature’s Discovery set .

So, I hope you can join us for this challenge ~  all the details can be found on the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge blog . . . while you’re there, I know you’ll be SUPER inspired by the always amazing projects from the Design Team!

Thanks for stopping by today.   I hope you’re having a good week!

All That Scraps Challenge ~ Fruit!

 

Happy Wednesday!   Time for a new challenge at All That Scraps.   This week, we’d like to see some fruit on your card or project.   This was a definite first for me!   

I decided to go with the adorable new C.C. Designs set called Take a Seat ~ it’s brand new and includes a total of 12 images that are available in either rubber stamps or digi images.    This cutie is Pondering Emma  (with little cherries on her shirt) ~ the chair, photos and lamp are also from the same kit . . . perfect for Emma.   

 

 

Pondering Emma actually looked a little sad to me, so I thought a cheery (fruity!)  sentiment would be perfect!   This has obviously been computer generated!   lol

 I hope you can hop over to the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge blog to see the always amazing projects from the super talented Design Team ~  I know you’ll be inspired to join us!  

It’s another double-post day today ~ we’re hosting our second challenge at 7 Kids College Fund, scheduled for 7:00 AM MT.    Hope you can stop back!
