I've had that happen, too. In fact, here are a few pictures of just that --I went to Stampin' Up!'s convention this summer and they shared a technique where you punch out an image or use the die cuts . . .
and then you lay ribbon down in the area that has been cut/punched out.
It makes for some wonderful texture and adds such beautiful color and "wow" to a card. You can use any color or ribbon . . .
You can see that a variety of ribbons were used on this card.
And then in the airport on the way home, I met a fellow stamper who still had "swaps" left. Guess what she had done on her swaps and had had no idea at all that they would be showcasing this very thing at convention? You guessed it!!
How cool is that?
I am going to be making this on Saturday with the people who have signed up to make Christmas cards. I can't wait -- we're going to have so much fun. Whoo Hoo!!
Yeah . . . I enjoy making cards with my friends that much!!!
I also enjoy hearing from you. You can sign up for my free newsletter right here. I will send you a free PDF right away as a thank you.
You can shop for lots of ribbon and other Stampin' Up! stuff at my online store.
Thanks for stopping by today ~~ Happy Stampin' and Scrappin'!
