LDRS Creative

I am excited to be a guest over at LDRS Creative!

I am sharing a soft and shabby card with you.

LDRS: Wishing you stamps and gilded doily die
Other items: Vintage button, burlap string, wired string, sewing machine, Um Wow Studio turtle doves, dictionary page

I wanted the birds to be flying with the ribbon, the chip pieces were painted white and then sanded.

These white vintage buttons with burlap string tied through them finish off any sentiment perfectly!

Make sure to head over to LDRS Creative to see some great inspiration!!

Autism Awareness Month is a time to educate your community about autism and Light It Up BLUE

Head over to the Ribbon Resource to enter to win some awesome BLUE ribbon and then get hopping!!


'The mutli-colored puzzle piece has become the international symbol of autism. Its significance has become multi-faceted. For some it represents the mystery and complexity of the disorder, for others it represents the mechanical nature of an autistics persons thought process. The bright colors are said to represent hope.'

I created a magnet using the puzzle pieces.

I started with some clay, rolled and cut a circle.  I put some holes in the piece before I baked it.

After the base was baked I painted the edge black.

The puzzle pieces and the letters are Um Wow Studio chip piecec paintd with Distress paint.
I punched holes in the puzzle pieces and used jump rings to hang.

I used the 1.5 inch white silk ribbon stain with Distress Spray to match the BLUE puzzle piece.

I glued a magnet on the back and VIOLA!

Spread the LOVE!!
