FCCB Challenge #99 - Fancy Trims

For My Paper Playtime Design Team Project, Click HERE


It's Monday...so that means it's time for another super-fun challenge at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!! This challenge is bittersweet for me...it will be my last project as a design team member. I want to sincerely thank Robin for letting me be part of her amazing team!! I have truly enjoyed designing with such amazing, talented crafters!! I will definitely be back for challenges :)

Today's challenge is Fancy Trims and we have a fabulous sponsor: Really Reasonable Ribbon!!


Really Reasonable Ribbon is the ribbon source that meets your craft ribbon needs. They offer full spools at wholesale ribbon prices to all of their customers. Shorter scrapbooking ribbon options are available, and longer cut pieces of ribbon are perfect for wedding invitations, rubberstamping, cardmaking, bowmaking and other crafting needs. All are available at discounted prices.

I used four different styles of ribbon/lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon for my project today (from the top down):

Leaves, White
Sheer Looped Ivory Trim
Amelia White Crochet Lace
Noelle White Crochet Lace


The base of card is from Elegant Edges and I used my Gypsy to weld it into a card. The paper is from Pink Paislee and I stitched it to the base of the card. All of the edges are inked with Forest Moss Distress Ink. The doily shape in the background is from Paper Lace. I cut it on white paper and then inked it with Forest Moss and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks.


The leaf ribbon was white, so I inked it with the same two inks. The banners were cut from Sophisticated and attached with foam tape for dimension.


I used Shabby Shutters to stamp "Wind beneath my wings" from K Andrew Designs Winged Things stamp set.


I like to buy white lace so that I can ink it to match my project. I lightly inked the bottom two with Forest Moss and Shabby Shutters.


The bird is also from Sophisticated and I attached him with foam tape. I used an image stamp from K Andrew Designs Scripture Sayings stamp set and added a green rhinestone for his eye. "Love you" is also from K Andrew Designs Winged Things:

I am entering the card in the following challenges:
  1. Little Scrap Pieces - Use Green
  2. Divas By Design Challenge #22 - Wings and Things
  3. Sentimental Sundays Challenge #90 - Let's Get Sentimental
  4. Cardz TV Challenge #102 - A Stitch in Time
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to FCCB and link up your Fancy Trim project!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

  28. Lisa, you have totally outdone yourself!!! I think green is so hard to do a monochromatic card in, but you rocked it! I absolutely love the ribbon along the bottom, the fabulous bird, and especially the rockin' banner. WTG girl!
