"Wave" Ribbon Flowers by Jan Rankine

Here I have used two rows of the NEW Green Tara "Wave" ribbon as a nice trim on my card.

On this card I have used the "Wave" ribbon to make my flower centre together with some Green Tara Petals. It makes a fabulous centre, don't you think ?

As you can see the NEW "Wave" ribbons come in a large variety of colours.

NEW Cobweb Mesh ............................. "Crazy Kid" by Di Garling

Hello everyone. Today I would like to show you a page I did recently using the fabulous NEW Cobweb mesh that Green Tara have. It comes in several colours & it just has so many uses. On this page & I have just gathered it up & fastened it with some oversize cross stitches. I think it makes a great embellishment for a boy page & just adds that extra bit of texture. Let us know if you have used it on any of your pages yet in some other innovative ways. I have also used some of the metal embellishments from the Green Tara range. I love "metal" on boy pages. To see lots of other metal embellies pop over & have a peek on the Green Tara website. They certainly have lots to choose from. Until next week. Cheers Di xx

"Memories" By Angella Peardon

Hello everyone. Today I thought I would show you a page I did recently using a rather dramatic colour scheme. Yellow & Black. I think it is a real impact colour duo. Anyway I have used some great Green Tara yellow petals as well as the Green Tara black Rosebuds for centres. Also I have added some slightly smaller black rosebuds scattered around the flower cluster for impact. When all this great yellow & black is teamed with a black & white photo I think it all just comes together. I hope this page gives you all a few ideas. Thanks for looking. Angela xxx

"Beautiful Ribbons" By Di Garling

Hello everyone. Today I thought I would show you some cards I have made for an upcoming class I am doing at my shop, & guess what, they just so happen to have these beautlful Green Tara ribbons on them. Green Tara have got all these fab NEW ribbons in so many new colours, it is hard to decide which one to use.These spotty ones I just adore & it is a bonus that they are double sided, which actually gives you two different colour ways to choose from. They have some with sequins some with a fine wire edge which are great not only for doing bows but also are great for making flowers with. There are sooooo many new ones I suggest you go over to their website on or just click the link on the top left corner of this page & check them all out for yourself. Also while you are there have a peek at all their yummy flowers as well. I have used a few on these cards. Until next week. Thanks for popping in to see what we have all been up to. Cheers Di xx

"Just A Note To Say" By Jennifer Hodge

I started out a stamper, then grew to be a scrapper and now am an avid card-maker and I can't seem to stop!
My favorite Green Tara products (at the moment) would have to be the roses and rosebuds. They are fantastic as centers for the Green Tara flowers or on their own as embellishments (I have a multitude of examples on my blog!)
As far as making them unique to you and/or your project - there are many ways to use them. For this card I have gently traced areas with clear drying glue with a thin nozzle and the dipped them in glitter. I have also had great results spraying them with coloursprays, dunking them in colored embossing powders, coating them completely in clear thick embossing enamels, sprinkling them with micro-beads; and mixing the techniques together!
I urge you to think not just what you could use the beautiful roses and buds on, but what you can do with them in the process!

"You Light up My Life" by Jennifer Hodge

I wanted to share this card with you today. I've used the fabulous black and gold pre-tied bows (a must if you are all thumbs and your hand-tied bows never look right like mine don't!!); an ivory cherry blossom; and some of the new twisted organza pearl in ivory.

I started with my black card base, added a background panel of embossed and inked cardstock. Stamped, punched, and inked my verse; Gathered my doily, ribbon, and flower - inked with Vintage Photo Distress ink; and arranged them on the card. After inking my lamp post I adhered
it to the card and finished it off with the black bow.

One of the best things about the Green Tara products is the ability to make them fit any project with the least amount of effort! Add a bit of distress ink to flowers and ribbons and they can perfectly match any project!

Best Regards Jennifer Hodge
