I don't normally post that often during the week, but I think being sick on Tuesday helped - I got to sit in my craft room and create for longer than usual!

I made the card in this post on Tuesday but haven't been able to photograph it until now (my desk/photographing area was a bit of a mess).

It follows this week's Clean and Simple Stamping Fall-to Layout:

And here's my card:

(click on the image to see a closer view)

I tried something I've never done before on this card - stamping on ribbon. I'm not sure how well it turned out but you can still see it quite well over 24 hours later, so I'd say it won't bleed too much more (it was alot more crisp-looking right after I stamped it). I had a few issues with the brads sitting properly as well - hence why it looks a bit bumpy at the bottom (it looks less bumpy in person though - not sure what happened there!)

Size of card: A5 folded in half

Card/paper - Quill white cardstock, Grant Archival plain paper, Cre8tive patterned paper
Stamp - Inkadinkado "Chelsea Sentiments"
Ink - Versacolor "Atlantic"
Extras - gold brads, Kaisercraft ribbon from "Earth Tones" pack
Tools - Fiskars paper trimmer, Renoir tape runner

Challenge: FTL93

Thanks for looking!


  1. Fantastic design! Fantastic colors! I wonder if you could stamp in Versamark first and then right onto the ink color and then the ribbon-sometimes that gives a crisper image on regular paper, I think it would maybe work on ribbon?

  2. I never thought of using Versamark! I'll have to try that sometime. Thank you for your lovely comment :)

  3. Beautiful colors. Great way to use patterned paper. The ribbon's a perfect match.
