Good morning everyone. Today is the day for another BS & J Productions Stamp Off Challenge. Every stamper knows how hard it is to use that beautiful Designer Series Paper Series Paper. Well, most stampers also find it hard to use that gorgeous ribbon so we made this challenge about using our ribbon.
Here is my card:
Can you believe I actually used two pieces of ribbon on this card?
I used the stamp set called Tropical Chic. This set has matching Thinlits called Tropical Thinlits Dies. You can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. This is one of my favorite Bundles in the 2018/2019 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. I love anything tropical or beach themed ( I have an unexplained aversion to saying the word beachy. I don’t know why other than those renovation shows).
The colors I used are Gray Granite, Poppy Parade and Lemon Lime Twist. It is kind of an odd combination but I had the ribbon in those colors and ended up liking them together. The ribbon is called 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon in Gray Granite (from the Annual Catalog) and Poppy Parade from the Holiday Catalog. The Designer Series Paper is called Best Route.
Now let’s go see how Jackie and Buffy used ribbon on their projects.
Susan, I love the way you used the Gray Granite (I’m still getting used to this color) to coordinate the different forms of the Tropical Chic and then coordinated the ribbon. Delightful.
Terrific colour combination! I think Gray Granite is a great new neutral.
LOVE your color combo. I’m so happy Poppy Parade is back. Your card is awesome!
All three of your creations are so different! Stamping really shows our style. Well done, ladies!
