to a friend

Edited to announce the winners: #3 Cammie, #4 Peggysue, and #8 Lee Anne. Send my your address ladies and I'll get the goodies right out to you.

This is the card I used for the shoebox swap when I meet with the Texas girls earlier in the month! It was inspired by Lisa Johnson's card here. Flutterby Friend became a must have set for me and is now my favorite. 

One of the things I wanted to learn was how to make the wrinkled ribbon that I was seeing everywhere! I ordered the seam binding but my LSS were out of the glimmer mist! Shannan Teubner brought the necessary supplies and let me play. The Crafty Scrapper also had the glimmer mist that I had to bring home. (Are you still with me? Keep reading, it will be worth it)

So  . . . my own glimmer mist colors and my favorite set brought this card into being. The ribbon is beautiful with the plum pudding paper.

I would love to share. I have 3 extra card kits of the shoebox swap card that has everything pre-cut, impressed background, buttons, floss, etc. and will include 2 yds of the wrinkled ribbon that I made for the second card to give away to 3 people who leave comments. The card kit would work with other stamps if you don't own one of the sets I used. I'll pick the winners on my return from vacation on July 31st. I'll post the winners and if you leave me your email address, I'll contact you.

  1. These are both gorgeous Rhonda! I love those butterflies, I didn't get that set but I want it ;)

  2. Rhonda, those are both gorgeous. Though that plum pudding one is absolutely stunning! I made some wrinkled ribbon with my mom when I went to the US in June. I had about 10 colors of glimmer mist and we had so much fun making the ribbon. Can't wait to try it again. You are making me want that stamp set. So cute and I love the sentiments!

  3. Wow! Rhonda, these are such great card soft and flirty to oh-so-elegant! That ribbon is so gorgeous! I have spent so much on stamps lately that I'm trying to hold off on buying the seam binding, but I may just have to order some and some Glimmer Mist.

  4. Rhonda what beautiful ribbon you've created here! I have no glimmer mist but it looks like a lot of fun to use. One of these days . . . And I'm so glad you used plum pudding I love seeing purple cards.

  5. Rhonda, both cards are so pretty but I absolutely love the purple one! Your ribbon is gorgeous--looks like it would be a fun technique to learn! And I am so tempted to order Lisa's set. I didn't get it at the release but am seeing so many fabulous samples.

  6. Hi Rhonda, love your Flutterby Friends cards today! (I haven't inked up that set yet--gasp!) Your ribbon is amazing! I've never heard of the glimmer mist coloring idea, and just love how it looks! Thanks for sharing your creativity!

  7. These cards are both so pretty! I love the pastel colours in the first one - but the second is also my favourite - it just looks so beautifully rich and mellow! That set is also calling my name - absolutely beautiful work!

  8. These are both beautiful! I love the colors you used! The purple one really jumps out at me! Hope you are having fun on your trip!

  9. Nice job on both of them. Your ribbon came out great. Hope you have fun on your vacation.

  10. Wonderful cards! Just love that butterfly you have used on them. And your wrinkled ribbon is Beautiful!!!

  11. Rhonda, both cards are stunning! I love the butterfly you've used. Not got that set myself but you're certainly tempting me!
    Is it easy to make the ribbon?! And just how messy do you get?! LOL!
    Hope you're having a wonderful vacation!

  12. Those are beautiful cards - love the colors you've chosen. Great idea to use the glimmer mist on ribbon (why didn't I think of that??)!! I would LOVE to know where you ordered your ribbon.

  13. Rhonda, This is the first time seeing this ribbon, how beautiful. Thanks for sharing this idea.

  14. Oh wow Rhonda. Both are incredible. Such talent!


I love your feedback!! Thanks for stopping by.
