Today is day four of my week of challenge blog creations. Today's challenge comes from Splitcoast Stampers--that awesome site for stamping inspiration. Never heard of it? You really must check it out!! Splitcoast has a challenge everyday of the week. I'm playing along with the Thursday "Ways To Use It" challenge. The "Ways To Use It" challenge says: "So just what is the Ways to Use It Challenge? It is simply an invitation to create a card using a particular product or tool. Everyone is invited to play along!" (Read more: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/ways-use-f46/what-ways-use-challenge-link-master-list-all-wt-challenges-t202428.html#ixzz2gzzXX3B5)
WT447 challenge is to use ribbon. Well, since I use ribbon on just about every card I make, that's not much of a challenge. But I've been wanting to try a technique where ribbon becomes the image of the card. Lay down some sticky strip, line up your ribbon, cut a shape and put the negative image on top of the ribbon--et voila!
To give it a little dimension, I punched a piece of Midnight Muse card stock with the Decorative Label Punch and cut it in half lengthwise to make the frame for the "Hello Lovely" frame.
