Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog - Kym's Inspiration Post - Friday 12 February 2016

For this week the whole Design Team were challenged to "use at least 2 ribbons".

I decided to make a 3D project this week.  I had used a pattern from a Debbi Moore Bookfolding Magazine and made a gnome/pixie/fairy house.  It took a while to do the bookfolding and then I inked the pages with Tim Holtz's Gathered Twigs distress ink.  I then used some wood effect card that I got for Christmas from a friend to make the front door.

For my project I have used the Chou Kuik image called "Toadstool Head" and coloured her in with Promarkers and used Stickles glitter glue for her fairy wings as fairies have to sparkle don't they?

I have used various shades of brown papers by Summertime Designs and printed them onto lightweight card.  I have printed the backs of the paper as well as I hate to see 3D handmade flowers with plain white behind.  I have used my Sue Wilson Camellia Complete Petals die for the flowers.  I have shaped all the flowers with my new Tonic flower shaping tool.  I've normally "made do" with a Glitter Girls embossing tool but the new Tonic one which I got with some Christmas vouchers for Colemans is so much better even for the smaller flowers.  I have used some Marianne Designs greenery dies as a backdrop to the flowers.  I add some liquid pearls to the centre of some of the flowers and some white sparkly Nuvo crystals to the other.

I have finished this project off with the flowers, die-cut butterflies, 3 different spotty ribbons and then made a large bow with some brown seam binding and some gold bead effect ribbon.
