Ruffled Ribbon Flower and a Challenge (CCMC261)…

Hi There! Hope you are all doing well?  Week 2 of the summer holidays is nearly under our belts, and I suspect I’ll be shocked at just how quickly it will be over!  I’m managed to keep the girls entertained so far – and today they are out at an Art day, so I look forward to hearing what they’ve been doing.

With keeping the girls entertained, my crafting time is cut seriously short, so any help I can get is always great.  For today’s card I used this fab sketch from Create with Connie and Mary (CCMC261), which gave me a fab starting point:



I did the card then from memory though, so I’m afraid I drifted a little from the original sketch, but they are there for inspiration and to get you started, they don’t have to match perfectly.  I adore sketches to get me started when I’m in need of inspiration.  And here’s my card:

Ruffled Flower Challenge - Stamping with Val. X

  • I’ve used my new Circles Framelits from Stampin’ Up! to create the aperture. I’m so glad SU! brought us these.
  • I’ve used my Modern Mosaic TIEF to the emboss the panel too – I really need to consider the other folders in my stash, I seem a bit stuck on this one just now – love it!

  • I wanted something behind too, so I added a little panel stamped with the Dictionary background stamp.
  • Another Ruffled Ribbon Flower – Crisp Cantaloupe ribbon this time.

  • The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the From the Heart stamp set – one that has been in my collection quite some time and been sadly overlooked!

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s card.  Make sure you give the Ruffled Ribbon Flowers a go – they are super quick to make, so you could whip up a batch and have them ready to pop on a card whenever you need a fab embellishment.

Crafty Hugs, Val. XX
