Spool 'O Ribbon

I was lucky enough to get some card making time with a girlfriend this weekend. It was a nice rainy day to be inside crafting. If you're like me and heading somewhere else to craft, it's hard to narrow down what to take. That's when I'll usually print out a layout challenge or a CASE that I've been wanting to work on.

This time, I picked a CASE to work on. I saw this adorable card by Angie Tieman. I loved her spools of ribbon. The Spool is from the Sew Suite stamp set. I stamped it and cut it out. I then picked out some coordinating ribbon and adhered it to the spool. How fun is that???

Angie used real buttons for her card, but I went with some of my favorite designs from the Button, Button stamp set. I think they work just as well.

The challenge on this card for me, was using so much color. I usually use a lot of neutrals with a splash of color. This has no neutrals and is all about color. I turned to my trusty color coach and pulled out the Creative Combo of Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry and Tempting Turquoise. I must say, I do like them together and although this isn't my usual color style, it has grown on me.

Stamps: Sew Suite, Button Button & Afterthoughts
Paper: Pear Pizzazz, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Gray and Whisper White Cardstock
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry and Basic Gray Classic Pads
Accessories: 1/2", 3/4" and 1" Circle Punches, Scallop Border Punch, Paper Piercer and Mat Pack, Basic Gray Satin Ribbon, Rich Razzleberry Grosgrain Ribbon, Green Stitched Ribbon and Pop Dots/Dimensionals
