Color My Ribbons

This week on Heart 2 Heart Challenges, Team B was challenged to use ribbon on their projects. They all rocked this challenge and inspired some fabulous creations! I wanted to get to work right away and play along. You can get all the details on the Heart 2 Heart Blog.

While Close To My Heart has some fabulous ribbons, they don't offer it in every color. The solution is to color my ribbon whatever color I desire with the spectacular Color~Ready Seam Binding Ribbon!

First, I cut pieces of ribbon and lined them up with the colors I wanted to use.

Using a sponge dauber for each color, I rubbed the color on the ribbon.

Here is how I used the ribbon for this adorable Birthday card!

Do you just love this little birdie? He's one of the many images on this month's Stamp of the Month. When you spend $50 you can get this adorable stamp set for just $5.

It's also Stampaganza! Now is the perfect time to stock up on those stamps you've had on your wish list, like the Birthday Wishes sentiment also featured on my card. Buy 2 stamps of equal or lesser value and get one FREE. Get more details here.

Don't forget to play along with the ribbon challenge on Heart 2 Heart this week!
