Speedy the Fox and Friends Challenge

Rick Rack or Ric Rac or Rickrack??
Welcome to another challenge at Speedy the Fox and Friends.  We are challenging you to use Rick Rack on your projects.  However you spell it - ric rac, rick rack, or rickrack - we are talking about that flat-woven trim that has zigzagged its way for many years in all sizes and colors on to many garments and craft projects.  I am that sure all you card makers out there have a scrap or two or even a package of  rick rack in your stash.  That is where I found the red and gold Rick Rack that I used.

My card uses a new stamp set "Poinsettia Blooms" recently released by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.  I stamped the lamp with Versamark on White CS and embossed with Ranger Gold EP and colored with Copics. I cut the image out with a Spellbinders Die and sponged with Ranger DI Barn door before taking from the die.  Layered the image on to an embossed Gold Metallic CS mat (Cuttlebug EF Swiss Dots).   Stamped the sentiment ( from same stamp set as image) )  with Versamark and embossed with Ranger Red EP.  Added 2 rows of  Red with Gold Thread Rick Rack (From Jo-ann's)  and attached to a red card base.

Challenges:
Fab 'n' Funky: Use die cuts and punches. Used corner punch and Spellbinder Keyhole die.
Crafty Ribbons: Christmas
Crafty Catz: Add texture...used embossing and rick rack


Find some rick rack and please join in and you could win a stamp from Mark's Finest Paper, a Heinrich Co. You have until 3PM on Friday, November 9 to enter the challenge here. If you use Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. stamp, your name will be entered into the drawing twice.

I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
