You Are The Best

I have a little something to show today. I am making ribbons for my granddaughters teachers. Today I finished three and I have two more to go.

Dominique wanted to buy an award ribbon at Michael's for one of her teachers but I didn't think the price justified the item. Luckily, Just Rite Stampers came out with the perfect set several weeks later. I saw Mona Pendleton's award ribbons and she sold me. My little attempts are totally cased on her gorgeous creations.

The papers I used are from My Mind's Eye and I darkened some areas with Copic's G000 and G00. The words are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. The bottom layer is cut with Spellbinders Blossom Three, the second layer is a fan fold, the third layer I cut out by hand and the top layer is cut with a SB small circle. I used a cream ribbon from PTI and the green ones are from American Crafts.

The three that I did today are done with the same DP and now I have to figure out what I will use for the other two. This will take forever, since I can't make up my mind. Too much DP, too many choices.

That's all for today. I thank you all for coming by and leaving such sweet comments, which are so much appreciated.

  3. OMG, Marie, these ribbons are gorgeous! I love how you layered them! Your granddaughter must be so happy you made these beautiful ribbons for her teachers! I'm sorry I haven't visited for a while. I had to tell myself to stay off the computer because I'd never get anything done, then I lost my interest in crafting, went on a short vacation to Washington state and returned last week. Hope everything is going well on your side!

  4. Ohhhhh, Marie, you did a magnificent job....these ribbons are absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!
