Crafty Ribbons News, LOTV and Art Deco cards too!

Good morning everyone! Hope you are well :-) I have a heads up for you, Crafty Ribbons are having a Big New Year sale with sets starting at £1-here are some examples below! Make sure you get shopping early though because they are limited in quantity so to be sure you get everything you like you need to move quickly! :-)

As I am here I would like to share with you this seasonal card I made using scraps of Crafty Ribbons winter ribbons-see a little bit of ribbon can really go a long way. I used a Lili of the Valley image I adore coloured with Copics and Promarkers, cut round this with a circle nestie. I used Bo Bunny Snowfall papers, a dome greeting, gems, pearls and Papermania snowflakes-all from my 2011 christmas stash! :-) I am pretty proud of myself for buying almost no new Christmas stash in 2012 and just using what I already owned :-)

I'd also like to share my birthday card for my Nan. I used Papermania Art Deco Ultimate set, Craftwork Cards Elegant 8x8 card blank, Dovecraft glitter ribbon and gems. A simple card but elegant-just what you need during a season full of crafty jobs to do! :-)

I would like to enter these into the following challenges:

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
