The Monday got away… and 2 New POM for June!

Hey, who moved Monday?!?

I am one day late, but with 2 Projects for the Month of June!

First something OLD :)

Last Monday I showed you a project that was inspired by Lynn’s KS Crew Challenge … use a piece of ribbon as the inspiration. I mention that I thought about something old, something new, … something blue. The “new” and “blue” is pretty easy to see on the garter (that dreamy silk ribbon), but I did not mention what was “OLD” …. (I think I was still on a sugar high from all the birthday cake! LOL). The “old” is at the bottom of the garter. I had a handmade doily of my grandmother’s that had a large tear in the center . :( I just could not bring myself to let it go (I’m have trouble even writing, “throw out”). But, Lynn’s challenge and the ribbon garter was the perfect project for a piece of vintage (and sentimental) lace. Yes, I cut (gasp!) the edge off the doily and it became the bottom of the garter. The full tutorial can be found HERE. I also had a number of comments about if there was a special bride for the garter … Yes, there is (hope she’s not reading today), it is for my god-daughter… when the time comes her to need. ;)

Another side note about this ribbon garter, I used ScoreTape to hold the ribbons in place with the intentions of sewing the layers together at the end….. well, the ScoreTape does such an amazing job, there was very little sewing involved.

Now to show you something new …. another project!

I guess I still have wedding on the brain with this next project. A quick and economical Embossed Wedding Favor. The dry embossing gives this simple 2″x 2″ favor box an elegant look that is also very quick to accomplish. The stamped wedding tag (which can be personalized from the wedding couple on the back of the tag) is easy for a group of friends to help assemble. The full tutorial for this project can be found HERE.

You may have seen their fabulous KSS cards yesterday, but you can always pay the KS Crew another visit!

Who loves ribbon?

Boy, oh boy! Did I have surprise this weekend when I discovered that the fabulous ladies of the Kitchen … KS Design Crew, cooked a Blog Hop for my birthday! I am still in awe of all their beautiful cards and so deeply touched! Thank you all for all the wonderful Birthday wishes… I truly had a fabulous Birthday weekend! :)

Now, it is the first Monday of the month, and you know what that means … a new KS Crew Challenge. This month, our hostess is Lynn. She is challenging us, KS Crew Challenge – #26, to dig in our ribbon box, drawer or where ever you store your lovely ribbons…. and get inspired!

So, I got to thinking about ribbon and came across this beautiful silk ribbon that I got from Sharon over at her Stamp Simply Ribbon Store … then I started thinking about vintage lace… and then thought about something old, something new, … something blue … and something with shrink art film! Sorry nothing borrowed this time :) …. That dreamy silky ribbon inspired me to create this wedding garter. What more perfect than to stamp Multi Step Wedding Rings to create an embellishment for this ribbon garter?
I am writing up full tutorial for this project, which I should have available a little later today. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have fun getting inspired with your ribbon.
Please checked out what the rest of the KS Crew has cooked up for KS Crew Challenge #26 … with their ribbon inspiring KSS designs!

Happy Memorial Day from the Kitchen!

Happy Memorial Day!
Animation from millan.net

Today I have another card using one of the new wedding stamp sets. This time it is from the set, Multi Step Wedding Rings. The Color Recipe for Multi Step Wedding Rings can be downloaded by clicking HERE.

For the dry embossing, I used the embossing folder only on the ends of the card stock. This left a band of smooth paper… which also turned out to be a great spot for the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today …. and I hope you have a beautiful day!

Please check out what the KS Crew has cooked up for today too!

New KS Crew Challenge & the BPS

My apologies … I am a tad late [ok, very late :(] with showing you my card for KSS Monday … which is also for a new KSCrew Challenge! PLUS, it is time for another… Kitchen Sink Stamps’ Wednesday Blue Plate Special! blue-plate1

This is where you can find random items on sale for 24 hours only! You will never know what might be on sale! No promotion code is needed Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

This month, our hostess Julie, has designed this fun and versatile card sketch for KS Crew Challenge – #25.

I just love Julie’s sketch… so much… I had trouble deciding which stamp set to use! LOL! As I was thinking about which stamps to use with Julie’s sketch… I was watching a blue bird out the window of my office/craft room. This reminded me of an email I received a while back from Erin Smetak. Erin wondered if the Cardinal from Multi Step Winter Cardinal, could look like a Blue Jay? Besides thinking she had a brilliant suggestion… (I love a color challenge), I thought a Blue Bird/Cardinal would look great with Julie’s sketch. So, here is my version of a Cardinal pretending to be a Blue Jay! ;) …. I believe a Blue Jay’s chest should be white and their markings are a bit different…. but, I think it works …. what do you think? Thanks for the fabulous sketch Julie …. and the wonderful suggestion Erin! :)

I hope you checked out what the rest of the KS Crew had cooked up for you on Monday … but just in case … you can still see their inspiring KSS designs for KS Crew Challenge #25!
