Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hey y'all!  Its my turn to host the MIUM for ya!  And today's challenge is..........It's Knot Hard!!  Can you guess from the title what it might be?  LOL!  For this challenge I want to see a KNOT on your creation!  It can be any kind of knot....I know there are like a MILLION kind of knots out there!  So it won't be too hard to do one that you like and put it on your creation!  Here is what I did for today's example:


I used some paper ribbon to tie loose knots for this card, making sure to leave them 'loose'.  (yes, i'm loving this paper ribbon with the new STV kit! )  This was a super quick card to make!  I used the new StampTV kit, Shabby Spring:

I stamped the butterfly onto the paper ribbon too.  CAREfully cut it out and glued to an image of the butterfly I had stamped onto white GKD cardstock.  This gave the butterfly a fun texture too!


Ok, let me see your best KNOTS!  :D  Here is all of the small print:

Be sure to have your creation uploaded to our gallery no later than March 30th,  8PM EST.  Be sure and add the tag 'STV14MON12'  to your creation so we can see it with all of the others!

We will choose a random winner from all eligible entries to win some awesome Gina K Design goodies!

Here is a link to the gallery for this challenge:

Gorgeous sample card!

Wonderful challenge… Love your card. It's very cheerful, and I love the paper piecing you did on the butterfly. Wow.  :)

Beautiful butterfly. Love all the textures.

Love those colors Cat!  Great card!  Wheels are turning!

Such a gorgeous card.Just may have to try this:)Thanks for sharing.XO

I found a partially completed card panel so I finished it to enter in this Monday's challenge. I love the way it turned out too! Putting that knot in really enhanced the look I think. HERE is my entry.

Oh, Cat! This card reminds me of you in the sense that the color combinations are stunning, like your creations, and your artistic creativity is SOARING just like the beautiful butterfly. There is 'knot' a thing stopping you!!! I so hope I can play with you all. ♥

Another great challenge, Cat.  Fun colors and knots on your card, too.  So what's a kite without a tail, however, I guess they usually have bows but my kite's tail needed knots. Here's my card.  TFL and thanks for hosting.
