Welcome to the first blog hop featuring the members of the Lovebug Creations Creative Team! We're featuring projects celebrating the upcoming March Holidays, and we're showing off some of the newest colors of our favorite Rumple Ribbons.
Now, truth be told, I have a lot of ribbons in my stash ... and I seldom used them on my cards, until I was introduced to Rumple Ribbons. I love the Rumple Ribbons' versatility and exploring new ways to use and enjoy putting the Rumple Ribbons on my cards. And ooooh-la-la, the new colors? LUSCIOUS!!
My very favorite color (really, of all time) is GREEN LEAVES! Could it be that peridot is my birthstone? Or that I'm Irish (at least a smidge)? Or that my eyes are kinda this color? Whatever ... love it! Here's my project, celebrating March 17th's St. Patrick's Day:
I wove a background of Green Leaves Rumple Ribbons onto my green dotted background, first punching ribbon holes using my Sew Ribbon punch. I alternated the solid Green Leaf, with the green leaf-tipped-white. I cut the word frame "OH HAPPY DAY" using a cut file from Silhouette's Online store, and decided I rather like the pun, changing the Oh to an apostrophe'd O' ... such a punster. I accented the letters and lines between the words using a white gel pen. I next added the clip-on orange hairbow simply because I liked it and had it from my recent Michael's clearance haul. That bow cost $0.02!!
