Funky Four: smile





Happy Friday! Can't believe it's already Friday! It's sad, it means the pendulum swings back the other way on the countdown of summer break...5 weeks down, 4 to go, sigh. But I'll put my happy face back on, 4 weeks is good!


I broke out my new Funky Four set yesterday to use for The Play Date Challenge 37. The color theme was supposed to be the challenge, and I don't usually go this *literal* with an inspiration photo, but I just loved it and thought it would make a great design for the whole card. So I scored the background piece, then cut out the little mushrooms so they'd be "sitting on the shelf."

Check out the new Pear Pizazz ribbon, it is fabulous, people!! This type comes in the 5 new In Colors. To get the ruffle, I sewed one line of stitching (in the longest stitch setting) down the middle, then pulled on both ends to gather it up. To attach it, I put down a line of Zip Dry glue (that stuff is amazing!) then held the ribbon down for a few seconds until it dried.


Okay, peeps, hope you have a great Friday! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Ok, where do I even start??? I love how you scored the background, it's such a subtle detail, but adds such a nice texture. The mushrooms are adorable, and I'm LOVING your ribbon treatment! I just know I'm going to be messing around with ribbon for the next couple of hours because of you... ;)

Just RSS feed because I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this card! I just love it--all the details (ribbon, mushrooms that are 3D, scored lines, and the sentiment). Beautiful:) Great job on our color combo! Thanks for joining in the fun at the PDCC:)

That ruffled ribbon treatment is so fun! My goodness, woman, is there nothing you can't do...so creative!

I've been super busy cleaning this house of mine getting ready for my Texan friends' visit on Wednesday, so I haven't had much free time in the studio. You make me want to go work in the studio RIGHT NOW!

Absolutely sweet and delightful! Love your card from the photo!

Helen said...

Ok, my cousin in Canada told me there was a set in the new catty that I'd love and she was hoping we'd get it here in the UK in October. It was Funky Four and I took a look at it and said: "Nah, not fussed about it." But now I've seen your fabulous card I really really want it! LOVE that ruffle effect, too - do I break a habit of a lifetime and actually SEW something.....?
