Ribbon Monster...

Hi, my name is Jessica, and I am a ribbon monster. I've got it falling out of drawers, hanging on hooks, tucked into pockets and tied onto just about everywhere. A girl could just get lost in all the different varieties of satin and grosgrain, shiny satins, patterned & pleated - it's just heaven! Ribbon is one of the main reasons I could never switch to full digital projects, because I just love the different textures and appeal that real ribbon holds.

Good thing this week is devoted to my guilty little pleasure over at Practical Scrappers. So many new ideas to play with! You've got to check them out.

Here's my contribution for the week - a super fun Halloween card I created with new products from my massive Epiphany Crafts prize pack that I got last week, plus some May Arts Halloween ribbon that I'm creating with for a guest blog post in a few weeks...


Patterned Papers, Stickers, Journaling Sprout: Jillibean Soup // Ribbon: May Arts // Epoxy Charm: Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio w/ Jillibean Soup Paper // Cardstock: Stampin' Up

How fun are those little monsters? They crack me up. I wove my printed satin ribbon through holes I created with my Crop-o-Dile, then slipped a strip of ribbon through one of the stitches for my bow. The back stitch I used held the ribbon in nice and tight, so all I had to do was adhere my ends, which I did with glue dots after I tucked under one of the back stitches on the inside of the card.

Oh, and notice that fun little stripy accent in the bottom right corner? That's a handmade epoxy charm that I created with my new Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio - definitely one of the coolest, easiest tools I have ever been lucky enough to play with! Watch for those soon in the Lucky Girl Crafts store - they're stinkin' awesome!!!
