Puppy Love

This week's Stamp Simply Challenge (ssnotime153) is "Pleated Ribbon." I am also submitting this design to this week's Shabby Tea Room's Challenge, "Delicate Cottage Rose," found here.

The base of my card is Stampin' Up's "Pretty in Pink," with the top layer run through my CuttleBug using Stampin' Up's new "Square Lattice" Impression plate.

I stamped my Sarah Kay's "Fanny's Cuddle" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored her with numerous Copic markers.

Spellbinder Petite Oval dies (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) were used to create the image panel, along with a distressing tool all around.

The star of this design is most certainly the lovely pink May Art's Silk ribbon, available at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. Some Prima Mini Roses finish this pleated design.

Check out the rest of the Stamp Simply Challenge Team to see what they have "up their sleeves..."

I'm heading out of town for the weekend to attend a Copic Class led by the ever talented and inspiring Debbie Olson! You can see her gorgeous work HERE.

Have a great weekend!

Wow Deb, This is Fantastic! Let's start at the bottom first. I love the pink embossed bg. I just love that embossing! (I need to get it!) Your image is so beautiful. I could put myself in her spot. I love the way you colored her. The hair especially. I love the ribbon of course. It is spectacular! I love your make them so special...each of them.

I hope you have a blast at the Copic Class, and I hope you have lots of tricks and tips to share! (If allowed.)

How is your room coming along? Are you rushing everything in? Or doing what I did, and looking at every little scrap paper, and every button to decide if it is worthy to go into your new studio?
Details...we want to least I want to know!

Enjoy the end of your summer. It's over here...Kids have been in school a week already!

He IS Able,
