Ribbon Carousel Hop

to my little part of the 

You should be arriving here from Shemaine's Blog.
All-righty...let's get started!
I love ribbon.  I use ribbon on almost every single project that I make.
It adds that soft texture which, to me, completes a look.
 My first card is pretty simplistic:

Unity: June 2012 Kit-of-the-Month
Ribbon Carousel: Blue Striped Grosgrain Ribbons
Patterned Papers: October Afternoon

Okay, so I'll admit...I was a little afraid to try this next trick, but in the 
end I threw caution to the wind and said 'what the heck!"

You've guessed it:  I stamped onto the actual ribbon and then carefully
trimmed out with a pair of super sharp fine-tipped scissors.
Be sure to use a solvent ink such as Staz-On so that the image
doesn't bleed.  
Unity: Poised & Pretty SB-987A
Unity: July 2012 Kit-of-the-Month (sentiment)
Ribbon Carousel: 1.5" Blue/White Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
and Red/White Striped Poly Ribbon
Patterned Papers: Pink Paislee

To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
