Thanks for looking,
Aprils competition is to use thin ribbon (7mm wide or less) as the focal point on your card, or other project.
Up for grabs is £20 in Poppicrafts vouchers for you to spend on whatever you like. Please email good quality photos of your entry to email@example.com or leave a comment and link to your blog, so we can pop over and see what you have come up with.
Thin ribbons in my opinion are very under-rated, they can be used for so much, not just finishing touches. Heres what some of the Design Team have created, arent they just fabulous!!!
Please remember that the ribbon has to be used as the main focal point of your project.
The closing date for all entries is April 30th 2009
Thanks for looking,
Thank you to everyone who entered the March competition and also giving a little something to charity in the process. I am extremely grateful to you all. I truly enjoyed seeing your fantastic creations. However, I could not decide on a winner, so handed the task over to my 3 year old little girl - Poppi. She decided that her favorite was:
Elli made this beautiful ring and bracelet by covering the flowers with diamond glaze, to make them harder, glossy and water resistant. She then fixed them to some double frill elasticated velvet to make the band. How cool....
Congratulations Elli, your £35 voucher is in your account.
I then decided that I would also give a prize for runner-up. I just had to choose this beautiful card by Pam. I do like a card with a bit of depth and this card certainly has that. I think the colour match is just perfect. So there is a £10 voucher in your account too. Congratulations Pam.
And here are all the other fantastic entries. Thank you ladies - they are stunning!
Thanks for looking and next week I will posting Aprils competition, I hope you will be able to join in.
This months competition is focusing on flowers and what we can do with them.
The winning prize will be a £35 Poppicrafts voucher to spend on whatever you like.
£35, here at Poppicrafts goes a long way, so what would you choose? Maybe 500 blooms, or well in excess of 100 yards of ribbons, or over 1400 buttons. Well, whatever you choose it will certainly stock up on some serious stash.
So, what can you do with papers flowers?
I had a little play and this is what I came up with. I hope it whets your appetite.
Run them through your embossing folder, for a textured effect.
Mount them on Chipboard
Our 4 pack chipboard flowers are the exact same shape and size of our large blooms to go, making it so easy to just glue them straight on top - no sanding or filing the edges!!! For a more interesting effect, why not stamp them too.
Well that's it for tonight then. TFL,
