Hello everyone! In case you haven't heard yet, this week Peachy Keen Stamps & Really Reasonable Ribbon are teaming up to create some really GREAT projects. Now what crafter doesn't LOVE ribbon?!?!?! I know I do, so here are two fun little projects I made:
Hee! I just LOVE it!! This is going in my craft room for sure! I don't know about you, but I'm one of those crafters that has to get EVERY color when I buy stuff...LOL! So of course I just had to get ALL these rainbow colors of ribbon!
I cut two center circles with a circle punch, one for the front and one for the back. The patterned paper for the circles is from the My Minds Eye ~ Remarkable collection that I got from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique. All of the super fun ribbon is Grosgrain Ribbon from the RRR ~ Bright Stripes Assortment Pack. LOVE IT!! I simply glued the loops of ribbon in between the two circle pieces. The sweet little face is from the PKS ~ Basic Paper Doll Face Assortment. (I think it's my favorite Peachy face of all time!!) I added some chalk for cheeks, used a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll Pen for accents and Copic ~ Sketch Markers for the mouth. And for some super pretty bling, I added Doodlebug Design ~ Jewels in rainbow colors around the circle and the base of each ribbon petal.
I wrapped some green ribbon around a craft stick to make a stem and then tied some ribbon in a knot around the stem for some leaves. I made the little label with the MCT ~ Curly Label Die & Stitched Curly Label Die. The sentiment is from the PKS ~ August 2012 : Kit of the Month. The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink. Cute! That would make anyone smile!! :)
My second project is a rainbow Happy Birthday card. :) All of the solid colors of cardstock are from Recollections. And the blue polka dot paper in the background is from the Recollections ~ Blue Christmas collection. The fun flowers are cut with the MCT ~ Flower Petal Dies. The flower centers are cut with the small stitched circle die in the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit. And all of the flower stems are made with awesome RRR ~ Sheer - 3 Striped ribbon. Fun Fun Fun!!!
The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the PKS ~ With A Cherry On Top stamp set. And the "Stamp on a grin and soak it all in!" sentiment is from the PKS ~ June 2012 : Kit of the Month. The cute face for the red flower is from the PKS ~ Simple Sallies Face Assortment. The face for the orange flower is from the PKS ~ Snow Cuties Face Assortment.
The face for the yellow flower is from the PKS ~ Sweet & Silly Face Assortment. The face for the green flower is from the PKS ~ Snow Cuties Face Assortment. The face for the blue flower is from the PKS ~ Sweet & Silly Face Assortment. And the face for the purple flower is from the PKS ~ Basic Paper Doll Face Assortment.
