Ribbons To Weave Love...

I took the Ribbon Challenge from the LNS ladies and decided to make Ribbon 'Brads' of sorts... punched a hole thru the layered, embossed, hearts and then tied the ribbon into little knots - I then thread the ends in.. the knot being the 'brad'....
I did the Ribbon 'Brads' thru the lil flowers on the Heart...

From BEHIND... I then SNAIL adhesive the ends down...


The TOP view... the lil accent of the Ribbon 'Brad' really adds something, don't you think??

I really like the Black and White Gingham ribbon accent as the 'brad'

I like the Woven Ribbon Accent and the Ribbon Brads... This is the top view... and I love the 'Feel' of the card - the TEXTURE of it all... yummy..

The END Result... A Woven LOVE card... and the Hubby LOVES it... who knows - he may just receive it at his office.. wonder what the girls in his office will say... he, he, he..
The 411:
Hi gang.. I started to mull over this Late Night Stamper's Ribbon Challenge and this was the Result... what do you think??
I started off using our great Grid paper and scotch tape.. I started with the Black Ribbon and alternated every other line (1/2 inch increments) and then moved on to the Red Ribbon. I went to the other of the paper. The scotch tape and then the Red Ribbon on EVERY box/line...
After the taping and lining up of the ribbon I then used the Scotch Tape Holder to hold BACK the red ribbon and with the top ribbon down - each line - I laced and wove the Red Ribbon, alternating each line on the Black Ribbon. The result = A Woven fabric piece out of ribbons. While the Scotch tape held down each side I used our SNAIL adhesive and adhesived lines where the ribbon would lay (like a box of adhesive and a line thru the middle) and wiggled it under the ribbon that was Scotch Taped down... it went on smoothly, in it's completed piece (except for one lil line of ribbon - easily fixed).
(This was NOT a 10 Minute Card.. ha, ha, ha)
Then I Heat Embossed the White Words on the card, the Heart on a Red and White paper.. cut them out and layered them. I thought it needed more... humm, a Brad??
As I punched holes in it - I thought, RIBBON... so I tied lil knots in the ribbon and cut them apart. Threading them thru the holes I used our SNAIL adhesive to hold the ends down. I finished it off with Stampin' Dimensionals to continue the raised feel of it all... and BAM.. 'twas done.
I hope you feel all warm, woven and loved... To the Ribbon Challenge... smooches!!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
