My own work!




I used Close to Cocoa, which I haven't used FOREVER, Bashful Blue & Whisper White. I frayed the grosgrain ribbon (a trick that my good friend, Melissa taught me). You just cut your ribbon to the desired length then pull on one end (there is one end that will stop & not fray & the other end will). Just be careful to hold all the pieces together. I've tried tying the know loosely first-it has worked sometimes & other times it will get stuck.


Ok, so over the bazillion years that I've been stamping I've mastered the art of CASE'ing. I love to copy other people's work. I usually will change the stamp set or the colors but I've always had a hard time coming up with something on my own. So last month I was at my friend, Melissa's house to stamp & she turned me on to the challenges at Splitcoast. I've been a member of Splitcoast forever but have never looked at the challenges. So I still haven't had much time to do the challenges but I'm going to. Melissa also gave me another little hint. When she's "blocked" she'll sometimes just open the Stampin' Up! catalog to whatever page & she'll use something that she see's on that page. So I did this when I was at her house & this is what I came up with-it really doesn't look like the card I was going off of but I did use the idea of making a 3x3 card. So here's one that I did on my own. I have made a few over the years on my own, but they are very few & far between. I've decided to change this & I'm working on doing more of my own work. It's a good feeling! Delicious Tweet It! Facebook
