Stamp Simply, Ribbon Tabs!

For Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply challenge this week, it's about bits of ribbon! Sharon challenges us to use a ribbon tab or tabs to adorn our card instead of our card wrapped with ribbon or bows. Well, it's a good thing that anything goes with Sharon's challenges, because as much as I tried to use JUST a ribbon tab, I could not get it to work with this card idea I had started! So, there are two ribbon tabs resulting in ribbon being wrapped around the card front, held by Bazzill black brads. Not what I had first envisioned, but it works! And that is what I adore about Sharon's challenges, the most important rule is to HAVE FUN!
I decided to try out my new Nestabilities, Large Pinking Circles. Using all Papertreyink cardstock, I layered three for the card inside. Two are attached to the ribbon strip, along with the Nestie circle cut stamped image. Copic Marker colors used for the image are in photo. Kaiser adhesive pearls used for flower centers.
I am loving this new 2" JustRite wood circle stamper. New JustRite products have been posted at the JustRite online store! Be sure to check them out HERE! You will find all ordering information there too!
There is no time limit to play Sharon's Stamp Simply challenge and upload your project at Splitcoast and/or your Blog, anytime at all! You can play as many times as you like!!! REMEMBER to use keyword ssnotime79 when you upload. The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun!
For my card I chose to create my own sentiment that is revealed when the card front is opened. Using JustRite's NEW lower case Trompe Script 95pt font, made it a cinch, using my 1 5/8" round wood stamper. I trimmed in on the letter i to get a tighter letter fit. A Kaiser adhesive gem dots the i. The inside card photo gives you an idea of the card front backside, and the inside sentiment panel.
This photo gives a great look into the set's endless possibilities. I have another creations coming soon using this bonus center! Can't wait to show you! Stay tuned!
