Ribbon or Lace Challenge

This week’s Crafty Boots Challenge is to use Ribbons or Lace on your project.
I made this set for my sister for her birthday recently, and have used some lovely laces.

The laces are both from Stampin’ Up! the wider one is retired (unfortunately), and the narrower one is the current Venetian Crochet Trim.  The gorgeous papers are some that were in my stash, so can’t even tell you who designed them or where they came from.  Then I have used the Butterflies Thinlits Die for the large butterfly, with a stamped and coloured butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set over the top.

So please show us your pretty projects this week at Crafty Boots Challenges.
Happy Stamping!

Embossing Folders

Firstly, I want to say a big thank you to all the lovely ladies who invited me along to the Numeralla Craft Group today.  I always enjoy getting together with other crafters, and this group were particularly welcoming, despite the chilly, foggy weather.
We made two cards today, and I decided to introduce the Big Shot and Embossing Folders.  I just love embossing folders, they are such a quick and easy way to add some interest and texture to a card.

This first card uses the Wildflower Meadow background stamp (Page 175 of the catalogue) and matching embossing folder  (page 227).  We also used the Delicate Designs Embossing folder for the lacy look and some of the gorgeous Venetian Crochet Trim (Page 206).

Our second card uses the Large Polka Dot embossing folder (Page 227), the Typeset Designer Series Papers (Page 184) and the gorgeous stamp set called Traveler (Page 38) which is fantastic for masculine cards.

The ladies at Numeralla have invited me to join them whenever I want to, so I am guessing they enjoyed themselves as much as I did.  Thanks again, ladies.
Happy stamping!
Chris
