When I was working at a wholesale rubberstamping show in Boston with Kim from My Favorite Things I took a little time to shop around at the other booths. I found this really cool ribbon from Daisy Bucket. It's made of paper and cotton, so it feels like paper but has alot of qualities of normal ribbon. You can tie it in a knot, stamp on it, shred it, curl it, distress it.... and these are just a few of the things I've done with it. On this card I stamped "baby" on it along the side then I tied a knot in a piece and shredded the ends and curled them with my fingernail. I added some plastic and fabric flowers that I found at a local stamp expo over the weekend.
The image is from My Favorite Things. I paper pieced the dress using paper from Daisy Bucket as well. I know this is a bit on an odd color combo for a baby card... but sometimes I get tired of all the pastels!
Don't forget about the next ATC swap - it will be due July 15 and the theme is "Off Color" - by this I mean color you image with colors that are just not right! Like my red, blue & green ostrich, a purple frog, blue trees... whatever you can thing of! The swap is for groups of 10 ATCs - you can sign up for more than one spot it you'd like since I usually have at least 20 participants. If you'd like to join in please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll email you the details including my address. Thanks for reading!
