"Sweet Cheeky Smile" By Jan Rankine

Hello everyone. Today I would love to share with you this page I did recently. I have used the Green Tara Gardenias which were white & I have Glimmermisted them this great orange colour to match my page. I have also used some Green Tara white Roses which I have coated in "Diamond Dust" to give them some sparkle & glam. Next I used some Green Tara Paper String to tie my bow. I also used some WOW chippies, a couple of great border punches, stamped & heat embossed some butterflies & then cut them out & hey presto, all done. I hope this page gives you a few ideas for using our fab flowers. They really are so well priced, especially if you are watching your scrapping dollars. Can't go past these for impact & price. Until next time.
Thanks for looking. Love Jan xx

"Our Little Angel" By Di Garling

Hello everyone. Today I would like to share this very "girly" page with you. I have used lots of yummy Green Tara flowers which I have Glimmermisted, inked & used some Irredescent Medium on to alter them slightly. I have also used some of their white leaves, bows & I have tied a bow using three strands of their Paper String. Underneath the photo I have also used some of their beautiful laces & some "Bud & Bow" trim. Lastly I have completed my cluster with some terrific Green Tara Metal hearts. I just love these. I think they just add some impact. They come in lots of shapes & sizes. I have made a list of all the Green Tara products I have used.

"Aimee" By Jan Rankine

Hello everyone. Today I thought I would show you this page I did ages ago. It is an oldie but I have always been fond of it. I have used Green Tara Lime Green "Satin Leaf Garland" around the edge of my circle. This comes in lots of different colours. I have also added some little Green Tara Roses to continue the whole floral theme & of course I have gone crazy with bling!!! I hope this gives you some ideas on how to use these great little "Leaf Garlands". There are just so many ways to use them. Until next time. Jan xx

Ribbon Flowers By Jan Rankine

Hello everyone. Today I thought I would show you this page which features a hand made flower. I made this flower using the NEW Green Tara wire edged ribbon. I simply pulled the wire on one side of the ribbon to gather it up & tied it off & then just stuck it onto the page with a couple of glue dots. I have also use some Green Tara black skeleton leaves, their black Roses & this fab black lace also from Green Tara, of course. Until next time. Jan xx

"New Ribbons Showcased" by Di Garling

Hello again everyone. I was speaking to Mr & Mrs Green Tara (Alison & Mark) last night & they suggested I show you some of the yummy NEW wire edged ribbons, so I have made four VERY quick & simple cards just to show you a few ideas on ways to use these. They have a very fine wire edging on both sides which just makes them so terrific to work with. When you tie a bow you can bend & mould it into shape so easily as the wire edging is so fine. These big bows look fab as part of a flower cluster on a page or a card. Also if you look closely at the blue flower on the card you will see it is made from this same wired edge ribbon. The great thing about making a flower from this ribbon is that when you have finished making the flower you can then poke & tweek it into shape & because of the wire edging it actually stays where you push it. This was so easy to create. I hope this gives you a few ideas & I hope you enjoyed having a little peek at some of the other lovely Green Tara ribbons in these pics. Until next time. Cheers Di xx

"Sweet Smile" By Di Garling

Hi everyone, today I thought I might show you this sweet little flower page giving you a great idea for using the yummy little Green Tara mini flowers & bows. I have also used Green Tara lime green mesh on both the top & bottom. I first attacked the edges of this with my scissors to create a bit of extra texture. I have also used two more Green Tara products, being this fab mini daisy lace & this pre gathered checked ribbon. This ribbon comes in several colours. I just love it. Anyway enough of my ramblings, hope this gives you a few ideas, until next time. Cheers Di xx
