Calypso Coral Bow


I stamped the bird in Bermuda Bay Ink on a “splotch” made with Coastal Cabana Ink and a stamp from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set. What an easy way to color!

Next, I used the largest, Stitched ShapesCircle Die for cutting. I layered the circle with Cardstock for dimension, rather than using Dimensionals.


The background is Whisper White Cardstock, embossed with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder, glued to a Thick Whisper White card base.

Prior to embossing, I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink. I love how it’s curved, and I was able to shape it on the Acrylic Block to fit the shape of the circle.


How do you like the bow? It began as “white” Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, which I turned into Calypso Coral ribbon by MAGIC. Truthfully, I used a Sponge Dauber and Calypso Coral Ink, and pulled the ribbon through it. I let it dry for a bit, tied a double bow, and attached it with Liquid Glue. You can check out this ribbon, and all my supplies, in my Product List below.

A few Iridescent Sequins were the final touch.


My colors are from Paper Players.

I’m also playing along with Global Design Project.

The supplies I used are in my Product List below, so click on the pictures, and have fun shopping. My Host Code gift for the month of March is Pearl Basic Jewels (140 total pearls).  If you order a minimum of $50.00 in March, I will send you the Pearls in April. YAY!
