Great Layout Using Ribbon

 I don't think I'm the only one who has spools of ribbon just waiting to be used. With the current in-colors soon retiring, I searched for ideas on how to use the ribbon I have on hand. I found a great layout and want to share it with you.

This beautiful ribbon makes the perfect background to the Forever Fern focal point. 

I'm already considering ideas for other spools of ribbon in my drawer!

Fun Pop-Up Card using Art Gallery

 After seeing fellow Pal, Tammy Beard's post on how to make this easy fun fold, I had to give it a go. It was so much fun, we made it in my March class!

The base of this card is a square with a little extra! The Fine Art Floral dsp is featured along with the Art Gallery bundle. I found that Pretty Peacock works perfectly with this dsp. I used Stampin' Blends to color rhinestones for some coordinating bling.

The real fun, comes on the inside!

A 6" x 6" piece of dsp is folded to create a suprising pop-up. A definite WOW for the recipient. The sentiment and flower are part of the Art Gallery stamp set. When coloring the floral stamp, I didn't have a Pretty Peacock marker, so used a blending pen to pick up some ink and add it to the stamp - worked like a charm!

Until next time, happy stamping!
