When gems become ribbon.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended!

Today I am using the Gilded Gems to create a string, ribbon, or cord. Instead of actually using a piece of fabric I have decided to use embellishments to give the illusion of a ribbon.

What else do you think could be used to mimic a ribbon?

Happy Crafting!

How to offset the same paper.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today I want to ask you have you ever really liked a certain color or pattern of paper? You want to use it all the time but it often gives your card or project all the same look. Nothing seems to stand out. Well, then offset it.

Take your background and your accent piece that are from the same collection of paper. Then punch a neutral background accent so there is something to set certain parts of the card out.

See how the green makes the patterned paper pop out much more?

Happy Crafting!
