You are treasured+Zantangle


Really Reasonable Ribbon 4 Day Pre-Labor Sale here
My Candy till tomorrow here!  Win one of three dies!
 It's hard to believe that it is the end of August already!  Where did the summer go?  lol  Just a fun little card today that I made to share with the lovely ladies of the USA stamping Club at my local craft store.  Our tutorial last night was on Zantangle!  LOVE IT!  My Zantangle project is here today too!  Love this idea and I can't wait to work with it even more!

The friendship card we made in class last night!  you fill in two sections and pass the card around until it's full!  Everyone draws the designs they like!  There are no mistakes in Zantangle, you never correct!  It's like life, you can't change the past, just improve the future!


NEW YOU-TUBE VIDEO TUTORIAL CHANNEL

But, I digress, the theme to follow this month was water???  I know most of you have one or two scenic stamps maybe from Northwood or other company, but I have absolutely 0!
That's right 0!  

So I've decided to go with a nautical theme by adding some Jute String Natural from Really Reasonable Ribbon, one of my favorite button collections Latte and some terrific dies that are all nautical.  The friendly little lion stamp is just an extra I couldn't resist adding from 2 Cute Ink, "Riding the Waves".
The Studio G pre-made card and envelope set was on sale so I snatched them up and fast!  When I got the set home and opened it, I realized that the score line was on the longer of the two edges of the card.   Because I had planned to make a scene out of it, I wanted to place the ribbon going vertically down the card and found a creative way to do it, so I though I would share it in this video.  

If you give it a try with maybe wider ribbons or even some lace, be sure to send me a link so I can check it out won't you?  Have fun and I hope it is helpful.
