Gelli Makes Me Giddy!

I ordered a Gelli Plate from Gelli Arts a few weeks back and just recently had a chance to play with it. I don't know much about color theory so I have to use a trial and error approach to using and mixing colors. I limited my experimentation to just a couple of sheets of cardstock and I also used my rubber stamps to add some images to the background designs after they dried.  The textured background paper on both of these cards came from those efforts.


Hope you like them.

Card Creation for Case Study #163

When I saw the latest challenge posted on CASE study I thought I'd give it a try.

I have not had any experience with ballet over my many years on this earth, so I chose to use the COLOR and TAG components of this challenge, but not the ballet theme. The result is a pink tag I made with various and sundry components I had in my little boxes and bins.

RST Challenge: Needs a witty phrase...

The challenge on the RST e-mail list this week was easy: just stamp something! So I did. I stamped two images from the Sunny Carvalho collection at Rubbermoon, I colored the images using my Peerless water colors, and here's the result:




Witty saying?

The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #SSS145:

Over on The Sweet Stop blog, they have posted the monthly sketch challenge and I decided to give it a try this month. I used a nice variety of products on my card and I think I kept fairly true to the design suggested (except for the color). Hope you like it.

My Really Reasonable Ribbon Project!


I love the appearance of things that are woven, so I decided to try to weave ribbon as my holiday project for Bonnie at Really Reasonable Ribbon. When I saw a styrofoam cube at my local dollar store I knew that is what I wanted to use for the base of my candle stand. Here is the result:



















I wove the ribbon on only one side of the cube, but you can take the time to weave all four sides if you prefer. (I used straight pins to secure the ends of the ribbons). After I finished the weaving I added some of the white pleated satin and the white crochet lace along upper edge of the cube. Here is a close-up of the front of the cube so you can see the ribbon more closely:



The ribbons I used for this project:

(There is one additional ribbon that is sold out; my apologies)
