Good Company and a Video Tutorial

Hi there blog friends!! I’m back with a card and and a video.   I am head over heels in love with new paper from The Girls Paperie – you’re probably going to see bits and pieces of this for a while.  Aren’t you glad I’m not hoarding it?  My card today uses a sweet stamp set that I’ve had my eyes on for a long time from Flourishes called From the Desk Of. It has a vintage feel and it it’s oh, so elegant.  I decided to pair it with the shabby chic look of the Girls Paperie paper and water color using some sultry colors from my Distressed Inks.  The video is a variation of a technique I’ve already shown but I think it’s easier – I’ve settled on another way to do the rolled Scor-Tape flowers and it’s quicker.  I’ve experimented with this a bit and I have a whole basket full of those flowers now, lol!!

I cut my image from Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG and smudged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink while the paper was still in the die.  I then backed my image with Spellbinders Lacey Ovals. I spread three ribbons across the card and cinched them with a double Peg Bow on the right side of the car.  To secure the ribbon, I cut out a notch on the left side of the card and the ribbon fits perfectly, then I accented the notch with an element from Spellbinders Parisian Motifs.

Stamps: FlourishesFrom the Desk Of

Paper: Girls Paperie, The Paper Company,

Ink: Stazon Black, Versafine Onyx Black, Vintage Photo Distress Ink

Accessories: Spellbinders Lacey Ovals, Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG, Spellbinders Parisian Motifs, Ribbon, Pearls, Circle Punch

Okay, on to the video that covers a slight variation on the Scor-Tape Flower:

Thanks for stopping by today friends!!  Big hugs, I hope life is treating you very well today!!

    Beautiful card Becca, love the colors they are so cheery. I like it when you do the longer cards. Great video, that was very quick and easy bow flower you made. Both ways are great. As always Becca, TFS!!! :-DReplyCancel

  • Jeannie KinneyMarch 29, 2011 - 5:34 pm

    Hi, Becca, I missed the first video but I get the idea and I never would have thought it would be so simple. Thanks for figuring out the mechanics for us followers. You are the best! Hugs and blessings, JeannieReplyCancel

    I know, I’ve said this before, but you make the most beautiful cards and projects. I just so love viewing your blog and bow videos, thank you for taking the time to share.ReplyCancel

  • Pat SMarch 29, 2011 - 5:39 pm

    Beautiful, Becca. I will try both your techniques. They are both very useful depending on the size of the card and whether I am mailing the card or not. Would you provide the length and width of your tool for wrapping the ribbon? It look to be either 1/2″ or 1″.ReplyCancel

  • Becky GreenMarch 29, 2011 - 5:56 pm

    Becca…yet another fantastic video. I’m going to try this one….the bow is very, very pretty. You make it look easy….I’m hoping for someone with 10 thumbs it will be manageable….agiain, thanks for all you do.ReplyCancel

  • Mary RobersonMarch 29, 2011 - 7:45 pm

    I actually also like the little detail at the end of the ribbon ends.
    I guess that’s what you call those…anyway, it looks like a small
    fleur di le (? spelling) with a pearl in the center. How ingenious!
    Such a small detail makes such a big difference:)ReplyCancel

  • Brenda GloudeMarch 29, 2011 - 7:56 pm

    Beautiful Becca, I have a question what type of ribbon work best for this project? I look forward to what God have inspired you to do each day and I am always amazed at what you come up with. Beautiful work!!ReplyCancel

  • Barbara JayMarch 29, 2011 - 7:58 pm

    Wow this ribbon flower is so-o-o-o easy. I just made one. Thanks for both videos! . If anyone doesn’t have the Cutterpede track you used to wind the ribbon an Omnigrid 1″ x 12″ quilting ruler works perfectly
    PS the card is great too :)ReplyCancel

  • Jan SchultheisMarch 30, 2011 - 10:42 am

    This way looks a lot easier than the first one. I haven’t tried the technique yet, but will try each one and decide which is the easiest for me.
    Keep up the good work, we love what you do.

  • ColleenB.April 2, 2011 - 7:37 am

    Becca, your ribbon bows are Awesome. Even done a couple myself. So, so easy.
    Tried to make one using lace but that didn’t work as my tape wouldn’t stick to the lace so I may have to try and do something different. Back to the drawing board.
    Thank U 4 such a fantastic tutorial on these.
    I know, I’m a bit behind in posting comment, but been busy outside with my irises.
    Oh, Becca one more thing.
    I do wish your Amazing Quotes where at the top of the page or on the right hand side instead of way at the bottom so that it would be one of the first things seen when coming to your blog. I do miss not seeing the quotes at the top.ReplyCancel
