Thursday Totally TAGS ‘ n’ ATCs! - ‘Ribbon’

Like a crimson RIBBON are your lips; 
when you smile, it is lovely.
Like a slice of pomegranate is the curve of your face 
behind the veil of your hair.
Song of Solomon  4 : 3

Welcome to the recently-added Thursday Totally Tags ‘n’ ATCs over at!  Beginning today, February 21, we will begin doing a team post featuring Tags n' ATC's.  We on the Design Team will be sharing our Tags and/or ATCs with you each Thursday from now on.  We will have a specific Theme each week featuring an element, technique or embellishment.  We’ll all come up with something excitingly different – using various types of tools, etc. to create our projects...i.e., Cricut, CAMEO, Spellbinders, punches, stamps, paint, material, lace, inks, etc.   The sky's the limit!  The only restriction...  If we use SVG's or Digi's, we will only use those from the vast selection at PCW.

This first week’s Theme is ‘Ribbon.’  I chose to make Ribbon Roses and also add a ribbon tie and bow.  My color scheme is Cream/Olive Green/Pink.  Here is what I made –

*  The base is cream cardstock, inked with light olive green on the edges.  The top layer is light pink/white to which I also added a bit of Platinum ink here and there.  Both layers were cut using this file – pcw Tag g451 cf’

 * Using a MS lace punch, I punched a lace strip from cream paper, inked the edges with olive green, pleated the paper and adhered it between the two layers on the left side.

*  I cut two leafy stems from olive green/white print, using the ‘Acorn and Flourish cf’.

*  I punched MS ‘branches’ from cream paper.

*  I made the Ribbon Roses, one with a pink-dotted-with-white grosgrain ribbon, two with pink and one with cream lace-edged satin.  I made some tiny flowers, using a MS punch and cream paper.  I added Colored Pearl Gems to the centers of all of the flowers.

*  I adhered a tiny Graphic 45 element (that I printed) to the upper right corner.

*  I attached a large Pearl to the olive green ribbon in the top hole and a pink sheer ribbon bow to that ribbon.

I’m making a little Postal Box to ‘house’ my Tags in until I need them for Giving, but I don’t have it finished for today.  Hopefully, by next week and then I’ll show you -  I also have a pattern for an ATC box-envelope and will use that to make one and show that, too.

Thanks for visiting here today!  I hope you take a few minutes to check all of the Tag/ATC creativeness on the other blogs, too!  Be sure to remember MPC for all of your Cutting and Digital files.  Tomorrow is our Digi post, every other Tuesday is a Cutting File post and in between I may post some other projects.  Come again!  ;-}
