Stamp Share Card Swap

I attended the quarterly Stamp Share today and had a wonderful time. It is such a fun event. Lots of samples to see, ideas to share and the FABULOUS Make n Takes that Terri has for us! She's so talented.

This was a fun card to make too. I used the Stampin' Up! "I (Heart) Hearts" set and the "Well Scripted" set. You see in the photo on my card is some red "stuff" under the bow. It's just fuzz from the ribbon. When I saw that in the photo I thought I had smudged the card. But on the original card it's not there!

I also used the new "Sending Love" specialty paper. I LOVE all the sparkle on these papers. They don't show up well in this photo and you can click on the photo for a closer view.

And once again, this was a very simple and quick card to make.

materials used here are:

I (Heart) Hearts set
Well Scripted set
Pinking Hearts Border punch
Real Red Satin ribbon
Real Red ink,
Pretty in Pink card stock
Real Red card stock
Sending Love Decorative paper
Very Vanilla card stock

When I put ribbon on that is suppose to go all the way around the card I will cut the ribbon and tape the edges onto the back of the card. I don't care for how the bow lays when you just tie it on all at once. I like to just tape my ends on the back and then slip a little piece of ribbon under and tie the bow that way. The bow lays flatter and the whole piece of ribbon lays nicer on the card. I don't have to try to tie it tight enough to take out any slack. There is no slack doing it this way. and the best part of doing it this way is that the bow moves across the ribbon so you can position it exactly where you want it to go. It doesn't get much better than that when it comes to positioning bows!

This is a clean and simple card and I made 17 of them!! Glad I liked the card, huh? LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
