I looked for a colour challenge - but I couldnt find one would work - so I chose my own colours
I sure do like these cute little snow men
So I stamped the snowmen three times
once in the circle that I created with shimmery white
then two more times on some left over shimmery white
I started to colour with my lid of my ink pad, an AQUA BLENDER pen and shimmery paint!
This is for you Chris from CO HE HE :)
I selected 3 snowmen to be cut out
then I mixed a lot of shimmery paint (Frost White from Stampin Up!)
with Bordering blue
ouh glitter up the snow !
As promised a couple of days ago Here is how your dye the GrosGrain Ribbon!
- Stampin Ribbon is so easy to dye - I love it!
Ouh and my goal this week to bring you a video ( and not on ribbon dying he he - on something super special that I am making for our Big Shot Project - and I promise there is nothing like it out there - I created it - in my brain he he - so please come back on Thursday okay?)
- I know can you beleive it - I am going to do a video! wish me luck okay?? LOL :)
I used a glass here just so you could see better - I usually use a small bowl - so drop in a few drops of reinker into some water - you will be the judge as to how much reinker you want to drop in -
how ever dark you want to do your ribbon -
then go ahead and drop in your dry ribbon into the glass
so here is my ribbon in my little cocktail -
let it sit for a while - I did it a for a good 45 min.
then I pulled it out and let it sit to dry - you can also hang it - up to you!
and VOILA you have some pretty different coloured ribbons
Hope you enjoy this other way of colouring the ribbon Janet!
ouh I am sorry I fergot to tell you that I used Taken with Teal & So Saffron! Kind a cool and different colours uh??
while the ribbon was soaking up the little cocktail (that I mixed up tee tee (for Liane instead of he he! ) I created some snowflakes
oh get this - I used clear buttons he he - CRAZY uh???
and some rub- ons - fun stuff and super duper easy
Aint that too cute - and effective - I just love it - I so enjoy doing stuff differently
oh and I adhered them with Crystal Effects
and my card is done
Up close photo of the snowmen - hard to capture the shimmer
I did Crystal Effects on all the noses, the buttons and the pon pon on the toques -
this link will get you to the tutorial that I got the idea from - but I did not use the measurements - I used the idea I guess!
now for my colours
We are set - ouh and I received some new toys yesterday! Wanta see??
so I wanted to use my new snowmen card!
so as you know I just love to make cards with my Bride paper - and I did brayer it - Anytime I can't find a pattern paper I use the bride paper!
This is the Joy Fold Card Base - I created my card to be 5'' x 5''
This is the piece that goes as the Flap - I later decided that this piece would be red and I ended up making it 3 1/5'' x 6 1/4'' and I scored it at 3 1/8''
I like the red better
All Circles made with my Big Shot (use the circle dies - on Page 202)
you can see that I reduced the insert card piece here (the red one)
I over stamped my image after I coloured it and put shimmery paint on my snowmen -used my Stamp-a-ma-jig of course LOL :) Buttons.................. hum!??
good thing I hadn't assembled this yet - I decided to round all the corners - this is why I only assemble at the very end - cause I have been known to change my mind lol:)
I put the Pop Up Glue Dots (Stampin Up Idea Book Page 192)
on the back of my Brads ( which are on page179 these are the Jumbo Brads - 5/16'')
Well there we have it - my First Joy Fold Card - What do you think??? The orange is on the noses of the Snowmen - how sneaky am I LOL :) But it's in there - that was the colour challenge he he :)
Side view with the ribbon untied -
oh yha that was something else different I did - I put the ribbon inside so that my card would stay shut better!
Hope you enjoyed my card today!
