Loves Rubberstamps Challenge using Paper Shelter Digi Warmin in the Winter

Its countdown time to Thanksgiving!!!  Time for turkey and good times with the family! I just love the holidays, don't you!  I have to admit that I'm a little disappointed that I'm on a diet at this time.  Gosh, who starts a diet right before the holidays! Hello??!!! LOL  Well at least I'm making progress so hopefully that will keep me motivated to not go too crazy with feasting this day!!! :)

So this week's Tuesday challenge at Loves Rubberstamps is "Fun with Ribbons" and we were asked to use ribbon in any way or form on our projects.

Here is my card:

Our sponsor for the week is The Paper Shelter and I used one of their super adorable digis called "Warmin in the Winter".  They have such great images and I had so much fun coloring this one.  I decided to satisfy my "ribbon challenge" by just tying a ribbon at the bottom of the card the old fashion way!  Okay, well actually I'll admit that I got a little help from my friend, the "Bow Easy"! LOL I love this template....I am not good at making ribbons and this template makes it so easy to tie them.  And the ribbons (big or small) always come out nice.  So back to the image, I colored her up with my copic makers and if you look closely, I added some fine glitter in a pearl color to the snow and the puff ball at the very top of her beanie.  I love the way this came out! The paper collection I used is from Bo Bunny "Mama Razzi".  The sentiment is from a random mini stamp set I had.  I used Tim Holtz distress ink in "Faded Jeans" to edge all the papers including the sentiment.  The blue flower on the top right was actually white petals from I am Roses which I sprayed up with Tattered Angels "Midnight" glimmer mist. I layered 3 of the petals on top of each other to give it lots of dimension and added a brown button with a twine ribbon to embellish the middle. I also added two white mini crochet flowers on each side of the blue flower.  So that's my card and I hope you like it!

  4. This is awesome Marcy! Such gorgeous colors and I bet it shimmers like crazy in person! Beautiful job! I need a bow easy because I am very bow challenged! If I use ribbon, it is never in a bow form - LOL...it is usually tied in a knot or a I have to do a "faux bow"

    I am doing weight watchers so I feel you with the whole diet and the holidays. I have meetings on Monday nights and we discussed how many points a typical day of Thanksgiving feasting can be...YIKES - LOL! It was a real eye opener! Good luck this week :)
