Pals Paper Arts Challenge #78 Clean and Simple Bows



Pals Paper Arts Challenge #78 Clean and Simple Bows

Clean and Simple "BOWS!" How sweet. This card is the third attempt for me on this challenge. Isn't that what challenges are for? I cannot tie bows very well! I used to be able to tie them perfectly, but for some reason in the last few years, I have lost my touch! If you are like me, then you will LOVE LOVE LOVE Stampin' Up! Taffeta Ribbon. The 1/8" and 3/8" Taffeta ribbons are a DREAM to tie. These are what I use most because of my bow-tying deficiency!

Another great attribute of the Taffeta Ribbon is my trick on THIS POST, (little square box) where I didn't have any Real Red 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon. I dyed my Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon by running it over the Real Red ink pad! Take the length of ribbon between two fingers and lay that end onto the ink pad. With a plastic baggie over your other finger, press down on the ribbon and pull it through over the pad. PRESTO! Your ribbon is the perfect color to match your project!!

When you play along, just upload your card or project with a DIRECT LINK to your blog or online gallery, then label your project with PPA78. I can't wait to see what you create!

Card Supplies:
Card Stock: Basic Gray
Designer Series Paper: Red Glimmer, Love Impressions
Extras: 3/8" Whisper White Taffeta

I have heard gray is the new black and it is fabulous with the glimmer paper and those bows!

OMGosh Miss Patty - too funny I was originally going with the 3 bow look myself, but it looked too 'heavy' on my card, I was so upset that I didn't have the 1/8 taffeta in my box o tricks to do the threefer. Yet another order LOL
Anywho, great CAS card!
