Today, we have a very special guest on the May Arts Ribbon Blog with a bonus project using May Arts Ribbon & Penny Black Stamps. Please help us welcome Valerie Gee! First, here’s a little about Valerie:
Hi! My name is Valerie Gee, and I was born a crafter! I’m so lucky to live in Colorado with my amazing husband and two beautiful little girls. I love sharing my creativity with others, teaching, sharing ideas, and crafting whenever I can.
And her project:
I used the Penny Black stamp “Kisses”, and with a tiny modification to her necklace to make it look like a 4-leaf clover, turned her into a super cute St. Patrick’s Day image! I also took old brads that didn’t match my project, and altered the brads with embossing powder to make them coordinate with my green theme.
I used four of these modified heart brads to create a 4-leaf clover accent for the dot on the “I” in the word “Kiss” from the Penny Black Kiss me stamp, “x x x.” I added some green striped grosgrain ribbon to the back side of my image to create a ruffled boarder, put it all together, and I created a super cute St. Patrick’s Day card! Now Kiss me! I’m NOT Irish! Ha!
Here’s a video tutorial for her card:
