Ribbon Heart





I have so much going on today but just had to get this card posted early. I am issuing a challenge today in the Dare to Get Dirty event going on at Splitcoaststampers so it will be a busy, busy day/week.

I made this card last Monday for the CAS283 challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The challenge was to use little scraps of ribbon. All of my ribbon is from Stampin'Up! I cut the die cut heart out and taped all my ribbon on it. I cut off the edges after it was all taped down. Next, I used the cut out piece to tape over the ribbon. You really should cut out a smaller heart for the top, making it much easier to cover the edges of the ribbon. I didn't on this card but made another one and it was much easier. I hope all my instructions were clear as a bell. LOL

The "Thanks"  from Taylored Expressions was added. I think it was a freebie I received.

I want to take time to announce the winner of my embossing folder found here:  http://benzistampz.blogspot.com/2014/07/im-back-and-with-beach-card.html

Such a wonderful way of using ribbons or paper pieces, Benzi! I love this card, and especially since it is a heart, and your dear heart created it. Very pretty with the white panel resting slightly on top - classy and tailored in appearance. Your cards always amaze me - wish I lived nearby so I could learn from you.

Benzi, hopefully "Life" is settling down a bit for you, and that everyone is feeling well these days. Has it been as humid for you as it has for us this year? Wow! Worse than ever! (still, at least we have not experienced any damaging weather - so I'm grateful for that).

Take care, and know that I'm thinking happy thoughts of you even when I cannot leave a comment.

hugs,
de
