Ribbon of Courage
It’s time for the #179 “New Fun from Stampin' Up!” Challenge at SU-Only Challenges! We would love to see your projects using a “New to You” Stampin’ Up! set and I decided to use the Ribbon of Courage stamp set for my Clean and Simple card.
As soon as I saw this set in the new catalog, I knew that it would have to be one of my first purchases. Cancer has taken it's toll on my immediate family as well as my husband's, not to mention many friends as well. I think that this ribbon image as well as the sentiments and matching framelits are perfect for sending a note of encouragement to those who are experiencing the trials of chemo, radiation and other tests, don't you?
I am also linking to the Word Art Wednesday #290-#291 “AnythingGoes” Challenge. If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team projects or the Word Art Wednesday Challenge site yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
1). Ink the Ribbon of Courage image using Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black Ink, stamp onto Whisper White cardstock and heat set with the Heat Tool. Use the Big Shot™ along with the coordinating Support Ribbon Framelits™ to cut out the image.
2). Color the image with Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Markers, using an AquaPainter™ to blend the color.
3). De-static a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the sentiment from Ribbon of Courage with Versamark™ Ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
4). Trim the panel, mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock before adhering to the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
5). Mount the colored Ribbon of Courage image with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
6). Add a few Rhinestones to finish off the card.
