Spring Into Fashion

Morning Everyone!

I would like to welcome my new followers and 
give everyone a big THANK-YOU for your lovely comments.
Your comments truly inspire me to create something better each time. 

Today, I have a funky spring card to share with you.
I love this British Bulldog from Crafty Individuals.
I thought I would make a spring card to showcase its beauty.


I water colored the image with TH Distress Ink Pads.
I dabbed spring colors on the scarf and added some sparkles.
My son suggested that I add some light blush on the cheeks 
and color her lips red to make her more lady like.
I think she looks rather fashionable and beautiful.


There is a pull-out tag attached to the ribbons.
I stamped the sentiments on DP using Justrite alphabets.
The post mark and script are Magnolia stamps.
The DPs are from Pion Design Fairytale of Spring collection.
Dies used are from Spellbinders, Memory Box and Tim Holtz.


The following embellishments are available from The Ribbon Girl Shop:
Wooden heart button, cream seam binding ribbon,
ivory and natural button twines, WOC pale pink lily flower
baby pink sweetheart blossom, and ivory gardenia.

Thanks so much for stopping by and wish you all a wonderful day!

Hugs,
Katie

Tilda's Sewing Kit

Good morning peeps!

It's the last Sunday of the month, we have a new Magnolia Only challenge
for you at The Ribbon Girl. The theme is ~ Add a die cut.

For my DT creation, I made a Tilda's sewing kit.


I bought these wooden boxes from Michaels for $1.50 each a few weeks ago.
They are such a great little boxes for alteration projects.
The cylindrical box measures 3"(W) x 4"(H), and has a nice closure.
It's perfect to turn this into a sewing kit with a pin cushion on top.



I took the wooden knob and elastic off and covered the box 
with pretty Pion Design paper- Alma's Sewing Room collection.

I cut 2 circles (3.5" and 3.75" in diameter) and cover them with DP
and lace before I glued them to the top and bottom of the box.


I added a piece of lace inside the door to hold extra pins.
The box is large enough to store quite a few things inside.

I made a little fabric pin cushion and glued it to the top of the box.
I decorated the pin cushion with laces and applique.



I used Tilda Makes A Blueberry Blanket image.
I stamped the image on TAP paper and colored it with Copics.
I then transferred the image by ironing it on to sticky backed Canvas
and added a clear plastic sheet to make it more sturdy.


I decorated the rest of the box with Pion Design paper cutouts,
Tilda's Birds images, wooden spool, flowers, and
die cuts (swirls, dragonflies, fence, buttons).

The following items are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
13mm Olivia white cluny lace; 8mm Rebecca ivory cluny lace;
pink, blue, white Pretty Blossom flowers; white Stamens;
10mm pale pink open rose.



Thanks for stopping by and hope you will hop over to
The Ribbon Girl Blog

We would love you to join in the challenge and win great prizes!

Imagine- Ribbon Girl DT Card

Good morning peeps!

It's first Sunday of the month, we have a new card challenge for you 
at The Ribbon Girl Blog. The theme is Add Flowers.

For my DT card, I used this new stamp from Crafts and Me
The image is called "Winter Rose" by Zindy Nielsen.


I water colored the image with TH Black Soot Distress Ink Pad.
I added a rub-on sentiment " imagine" on the image panel.


DPs used are Pion Designs Alma's Sewing Room.
Dies used are Memory Box and Go Kreate Large #7.
I used the Go-Kreate die as a template and drew a larger frame
as I wanted to used the 6x6 DP as the background.



I framed the image with 2 Memory Box wreath die cuts, and
added strips of DPs and laces below the image.

I distressed all paper edges and decorated the card with flowers, tiny metal clip,
tiny safety pin, a Melissa Francis resin key hole, and a tiny key charm.

I pulled out the fiber strings from a piece of Jute Mesh, and used them to
weave a small wreath. I tugged this little wreath under the beaded berries.



I have used the following gorgeous items, all available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
8mm "Rebecca" Ivory Vintage Style Fine Scallop Lace;
17mm "Cordelia" Ivory Vintage Style Fine Cluny Lace;
50mm Ivory Jute Mesh; 20mm 'Angelica' Ivory Tulle Lace;
