If At First You Don't....

succeed, maybe you shouldn't try again!  A quick post today with two cards, both for the current DeNami Design product challenge (#4) to use ribbon.   I had such great ideas for this challenge, but I really don't feel like I was able to make either card work.  They aren't bad cards, but they aren't really good cards either.  Thus, the title of my post.  I should have quit while I was behind!   Anyway, this is card number one.  I used the completely adorable Mimi in the Rain from DeNami for the card.  I paper pieced her boots, coat/dress & umbrella.


And here is the second one.  For this one I used the DeNami birdhouses stamp.  I created the grass using some PTI Ripe Avocado satin ribbon.


Thanks for peeking... hope your day is going well.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI White; Stampin Up! Pear Pizzazz; Patterned Paper:  Stampin Up! Pear Pizzazz & Blushing Bride; Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa; Ribbon:  PTI:  Ripe Avocado satin; SU! Pink Pirouette stripped.  Stamps:  DeNami Design

What are you talking about?! These are both such cute cards, Rosie! Seriously! I love the pink and green combos! Mimi's paper pieced outfit is adorable and what a clever way to use the ribbon for grass! You are too hard on yourself. . .I love 'em both! :)

Love, love, LOVE these, Rosie! That paper piecing is pure perfection.... Kinda makes me want some {rain, that is!} ... Looks like you've had a stampilicious day - these cards are fantastic!

I think both of these are wonderful, but the second one really caught my eye. Those bird houses are really cute! I love the bunching effect for the ribbon as grass as well!
