Cotton, Silk and Jute

Truly — No Time To Stamp! But I “needed” to make something tonight, and I did it without much stamping at all — again relying on my Cotton Scraps and a few pretty things. Here it is:


Another quick card, and it seems that’s all I’m doing lately! My Cotton Scrap is from Feathered Friends, one of your favorites, and to aid in speed, I merely cut it out with dressmaker pinking shears. I left the paper backing on to give it more body. After my silk was wrapped around the script panel, I adhered my Cotton Scrap with a heavy double sided tape. Again, my Taupe Silk is wrapped around the panel, attached on the back. I then took another length of Taupe Silk, ran it under the band and tied my bow. Such an easy way to get a pretty bow that ends up being straight.

Go back up and check out my cute button! It’s just an old button from my box, but I just got some new strings in 9 colors and have added them to the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. I love them. Last week 2 of you asked me on the same day about strings for buttons, so I knew I had to get them, and I love them. They are so easy to thread though the button holes and tie off. This is just a neutral color, but I can’t wait to try the pink!!! Once I was getting strings, I got some cords as well — in 7 colors — those will be fun, too, on masculine themed or natural type cards. They are in the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store as well.
