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

I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
