You all have been so patient!!  Thank you for hanging in there with me.  I had a little bit of a backwards week with several days of migraines.  No, I’m fine now in fact better than ever.  Perplexed about last week though as I rarely get headaches, so they had me put down good.  I’ve been headache free for two days now and was tickled to get back to posting yesterday.  Well, I have another post for you today!!  I’ve had many requests for Bow/Knot tying tutorials and your wish is my command!!  I’m starting out with a basic knot tying tutorial (I know it’s crazy but some people call this a bow but I call it a knot).  With this one out of the way, I’ll concentrate on a tying a full bow, so keep checking back with me. This is simple and short!

    Wow Becca!!! Thanks for taking the time to so clearly show us and teach us how to tie beautiful ribbon knots like you do!!

  • ShirleyApril 17, 2009 - 12:38 pm

    Hi Becca, I just wanted to let you know I am referring people to your site from my blog for this video and suggesting they browse the whole site. I have had questions on bow tying over time and I think I like yours best so far. I am assuming you tie the bow just like your knot, but with the tails, right? :-) Your cards are incredible and your other creations too!


  • Adrienne UrbanskiAugust 27, 2009 - 6:02 am

    Thank You for this bow making tutorial. You are such an inspiration. I have one question. Do you have to glue the ribbon down to the card before making the bow. Thank You again.

    Giving God All The Glory,


How often is that you get to make a gift for yourself?   Well, in my case next to never.   I’ve always sewn, knitted, crocheted, embroidered, cross stitched, quilted and paper crafted with the idea of giving it away.  Sometimes I didn’t know that I wanted to give away until someone came to the house and wanted it.  Being the highest form of flattery, of course — I gave it away.  LOL, I really do like to give away things I make but you know what?  This is for me.  Yes, you are probably asking what is it? 

It’s a box for my Bible.   While shopping at the discount store, I came across this box that had a brushed silver frame on the top proclaiming "Congratuations Graduate 2008".  Well it was only a couple of dollars and I wondered how difficult it would be to pry up the frame and locate another frame to put down in which I could put this new image from Our Daily Bread Designs called Footprints in the Sand.  I looked next to the box and there I found this frame.  I’d say it was meant to be.  I’m so taken with the beauty of the entire image, I wanted to find somewhere to display it and I think the Bible box certainly fits the bill.  It was such a blessing to find the box an absolute joy that this odd sized frame was the perfect size for the entire image. 

This was such a happy find for me; the box is 7¼" tall by 6" wide.  The image on the top of the box is 6" tall by 4" wide.  It is watercolored using reinkers on 140 lb watercolor paper.  The most awesome feature is that I can pull that image and replace it a stamping of my favorite scripture, perhaps the picture of We Three Kings in another newly released set – if you can’t tell, I love the ability to switch things out.

Stamps:  Footprints in the Sand – Our Daily Bread Designs
Paper:  Fabriano Acquarello 140 lb Watercolor Paper
Ink:  Versamark, SU More Mustard, SU Close to Cocoa, SU Brocade Blue, SU Mellow Moss
Accessories:  Black Embossing Powder

I hope you are having a glorious weekend!!

    Oh, Becca, this is truly beautiful. The watercolour turned out so well. This is also one of my favourite passages. Did you read the book “Footprints” by Magaret Fishback Powers? She is the author who lost the poem and found it all over the place, and fought hard to win the right’s to her own work. Very interesting card. On the same note, I’m reading “The Shack” another inspirational book on the best seller list. Someone said it made them cry before page 100, and I was like “yah, right.” Honest to goodness, I did cry before page 100. Take care.

    Do you make and sell these?ReplyCancel

When I saw the new releases for Flourishes I was tickled as punch.  I have a die cut globe that I’ve been dying to use and I knew the images for Sleigh Ride would fit wonderfully.  This set is adorable . . . be sure you click over to Flourishes to see this set and four other sets released this week.

The snow globe is made out of  transparency and I stamped four images of the reindeer with stazon ink.  I colored behind each copy with Adirondack and Copic markers.  On each piece of the globe I dotted the surface with a white out pen to give it white dots that will seem like snow.  The bottom pieces were embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder, just to add some interest and texture.   Finally I added the ribbons and a tie so that the globe can be placed on a desk or hung on a tree.


Be sure to stop by and see what the Design Team and the Friends of Flourishes have created.  This is day three of the new release and the samples are simply amazing:

Cindy Lawrence

    Greetings from Moncton, New Brunswick Canada!

    Becca, I have been subscribing to your blog for several months now, and I must say that you are one of most talented card artists I have come across. I really enjoy your style.
    This snow globe you have made has really caught my eye. (I am referring to the snow globe in your October 10th/08 posting). It is so elegant, and you say it is a die cut globe??? It is beautiful. I would love to make a few of these as special little gifts for people this Christmas but I have searched your blog and cannot find out how you made it. Are you giving out the directions? Have you made the video/tutorial that many people have requested and I have not found it? Could you please direct me in the correct direction, so I can also make these beautiful ornaments.

    Thanking you in advance,
