Rainbows n Ribbons

Hello Y’all!

I am back with another CAS card. I haven’t had a chance to use ribbons in any of my cards in quite a while. So, I had decided that whichever card I would make next would definitely have ribbons.

Rainbow Bday Card

The card measures 6 x 5 inches. The white panel measure 5.5 x 4.5 inches.

I have used 0.5 inch wide ribbons along with Penny Black- Party Time stamp sets(cupcake and happy birthday sentiment) for making this card.

The following couple of photos will give an idea of how I achieved this look with the ribbons.

I coloured the cupcake using my Lyra colour pencils. Although initially stamped the cupcake using my ‘London Fog’ shade of Memento Ink, I re-did the cupcake outlines with my black Sharpie for sharper look.

July Cards

This post is really late as you can make out from the title. Well I guess I got really busy last month and couldn’t make any posts here.

So here’s a post with assorted pics. I have only four in here right now. A few have already been sent across to the people they were made for. I wish, of course, that I had clicked a few pics of all of them. And above all that, had a minor mishap with my phone and lost all my pics when I restored phone to factory settings 🙁

Will make do with the ones I have left for now.

All the cards in these images are blank cards with no written words inside. So here they are :

Bracelet DIY (Satin Ribbon teamed with Copper Wire)

Hi Y’all,

So yesterday night, I was all bummed out for no apparent reason. You know how that happens sometimes- when you have had a bad day and you feel everyone is out to get you and that all bad things only happen to you and so on. Well, I’ve had one such really terrible week and have had some real trouble sleeping.

So I made this bracelet last night, to keep all the dark thoughts at bay. Concentrating on crafting really helps with calming me down and sort of fills your heart with a blank sort of peace.

Anyway here is the photo.

Cheers.

Ribbon Weaving for Handmade Card

So here’s the work of an amateur card maker.

Handmade Card - Rainbow Colors

I know the card doesn’t have a whole lot except the whole ribbon-woven portion. But then, there are so many colors in there, that adding anything else in the card, would have made it look really tacky.

I was really confused for a while, wondering where to add the word – ‘Best Wishes’.

So the lesson learnt here is that, next time, I will do the ribbon weaving for a smaller area 😛

I decided to use satin ribbons for this handmade card because of my ever growing stash. I normally use my ribbons for jewellery making, but I have used it here for a change.

Below, you can see the whole process of how I did the ribbon weaving portion for the card.

Here’s a closer look at the hand-written sentiment and the flower.
