Creative Expressions Sheer Inspiration Blog Hop


Good morning and happy hump day!!

 “Welcome to everyone taking part in the Sheer Inspiration Blog Hop, if you’ve come here from Tracey Laughton's blog you’re in the right place”

So onto the good stuff. Anyone who enters the blog hop will have to leave comments on the eight blogs for a chance to win one of the £15 prizes. I've shown the list of blogs below. Each blog has a fantastic prize of around £15.00!! So you have eight chances of winning £15.

There will be a separate Spot Prize for visiting Kim Dellow's  blog on Friday 5th April.

The hop will close and prize winners will be announced on Monday 8th April.

Here's my make.....
o   To showcase the gorgeous Sheer Ruffled Edge white ribbon I have used it to "make" the material of the dress and of course the 3 little roses.

 
      I layered some navy blue and white card for a background. The white card has been embossed with a dotty embossing folder. Using a black ink I stamped out the Stamps to die for - Flower Frame and then clear embossed it.   I layered it up using again navy blue card.
I    then stamped out the Creative Expressions Fishtail Frock dress onto a piece of white card and clear embossed it. I cut it out and cut around the ribbon to shape it to the dress. I then made the sheer ruffle for the dress. The ribbon was adhered to the dress using a clear glue. This piece was then adhered to the frame card. I clear embossed the sentiment too which came with the dress stamp.
     To make the roses I cut a strip of the sheer white ribbon and folded it lengthways in half. I then rolled it loosely and glued the edges in place. I then cut some of the bottom off so it would sit on the card nicely.
      Just to finish off I used a few navy blue pearls.
