Happy Christmas wreath

The challenge theme this week at Crafty Ribbons challenge is anything goes (must use ribbon)!

I thought I needed to get move on with my Christmas cards, so selected one of the lovely Happy Christmas ribbons from the new Santa's grotto collection.

The stamp is from Penny Black, coloured with promarkers and mounted onto gold mirror card to pick up the gold foil on the ribbon and dark green card for a clean and simple card.

Cracker from Santa's Grotto

 I have a die cutter for a Christmas cracker, the Santa's Grotto tag ribbon fits the centre perfectly. I still had my shimmer mists out from making the tags so attempted to create a shimmering red cracker. with some tinsel and gold glitter to finish the decoration.
On the theme of decorating, I wondered if pom pom's would work as an addition to the packaging of presents, with some streamer of ribbons , here is wht I came up with, using the santa's grotto ribbons and sentiment ribbon from Christmas Rose collection. The bottom one is a felt rose, made using a scrap of felt on a small crochet snowflake.

More from Santa's grotto

 Here's a tin I have decorated with a shaker window full of glitter and sequins. The ribbon from the Santa's grotto collection fitted perfectly around the tin base, what fantastic scene it creates!
A ticket stamp from inkadinkadoo and some die cut holly to embellish the top.
 The fun didn't stop there, I also decided to create some decorations, they were given to me by someone having a clear out , I just had to pop them out and glue them together, just added a few gems/pearls/button the ribbon was perfect for adding a bit of character ! I used robin and holly ribbon on these decorations.

Feeling the Christmas spirit yet?

New Christmas Rose

Christmas Rose ribbon

It's so exciting when a new ribbon collection is released, especially for Christmas, it is so inspiring. I found I just couldn't stop making with this one 'Christmas Rose''s a taster of what I made.... I wasn't just thinking about cards, I decided to make a gift, stocking filler perhaps?
a piece of felt, some thread and a button, plus of course some fabulous ribbon ! perfect for a pocket tissue pack.

 no sewing machine, stitched by hand, felt doesn't's perfect !

watch out for more samples using this collection and Santa's Grotto.

New Santa's Grotto

Crafty Ribbons have unveiled a new Christmas ribbon collection called Santa's Grotto, it is so much fun ! It is already proving extremely popular and the DT had great fun creating with it !

I started with a couple of tags, I found some shimmer mists in reds and green and sprayed the die cut tags, then I inked up some Tim Holtz stamps. Embellished with some Christmas tree lights (papermania) and some dew drops, all the ribbons can be found at Crafty Ribbons (satin 3mm, eyelash ribbon) plus the ribbons Badges and parcels from the New Santa's Grotto collection.
I even found my label maker to add some text to the tag below.

The Happy Christmas ribbon looks great too, I was inspired to make some place cards......using some stamping tapestry stamps and few different inks, just add the ribbon, how easy is that?

Thanks for popping by,
