We're also all playing along with the Hope You Can Cling To challenge over at Splitcoaststampers, a month long effort to increase breast cancer awareness and add cards to their card drive. There is a LOT going on -- daily challenges, prizes galore and a card drive. You can read about it here.
The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store is pleased to be a sponsor of the 2011 Hope You Can Cling To event. Please check it out, play along, donate some cards and in the process have an opportunity to win some of the fabulous prizes being offered.
I've made two different looking cards for today, both using Prima's "Melody" decorator paper pad and JustRite's Clear Stamp Set, "Be Strong." I am also posting both cards over at today's Splitcoaststampers Hope You Can Cling To challenge Think P-I-N-K.
I've used the sentiment, "Hope" from the JustRite set, along with some punched out butterflies studded with KaiserCraft rhinestones for my first design.
One of the prettiest additions to this design is the May Art's Silk Ribbon bow, fashioned with a Bow Easy. A narrow strip of 1/8" ribbon stands in as a border between prints.
My second design features the same JustRite clear "Be Strong" set and Prima "Melody" DP as mentioned earlier (you can see the entire Melody collection here). I've paper pieced the pink ribbon on the image panel, then die cut and layered it with Spellbinder Petite Oval dies (check with Sharon for availability). Sorry, no silk on this one!
Just a touch of bling, and this card is finished.
All supplies used today are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
