Stamp Simply #79 = You've Been Tabbed!



Here it is Friday again already and time for another Stamp Simply Challenge over on Sharon Johnson's No Time To Stamp blog. Sharon is always so creative in her challenge ideas and today has challenged us to be TABBED ... here it is in Sharon's words:



Today’s challenge is all about little bits of ribbon — ribbon TABS that is. Rather than adorning our card with wrapped ribbon or bows, let’s just use a bit of ribbon and make ribbon tabs — wide, narrow, whatever — let’s just make sure we have at LEAST one ribbon tab on our project today. Anything else goes!! Let’s all show each other how much fun we can have with our little scraps of ribbon!!! Anything you can do with a small piece of ribbon is what we’re after! And the most important rule — HAVE FUN!!!




I purchased this image from one of my favorite LSS a few weeks ago and finally had the opportunity to ink it up. This image is from the Cornish Heritage Farms Saturday Evening Post Series and it's called Little Piano Girl. The music note stamp is by Rubber Stampede. I have used a premade A-6 ivory card and my designer paper is from the Crafty Secrets Radiant pack. Since I colored her dress using SU watercolor pencils in a teal shade of blue, I chose to mat my panels with tempting teal cardstock. I've used Stazon black for my image and creamy carmel for the sponging around my main image. The polka dot grosgrain ribbon is from Michael's.




As you can see on the close up photo, I stamped and colored the image twice then using my swivel craft knife, I've cut out the little girl image and popped it up with dimensionals. I used a watercolor pencil to color in the piano bench cushion and used an American Crafts gold glitter pen to color in the bench itself. I did use a Creative Memories black round tip marker to color in the front panel and undercarriage of the piano to give it more of a black lacquer appearance.
The inside reads "Your friendship puts music in my heart." And YOU my friends, certainly do put music in my heart! Thanks so much for stopping by today.

  1. I love your card, it reminds me of when I was a little girl with pig tails sitting and practising my piano lessons. It is so cute and your choice of the pretty bright blue just makes it perfect. Love your inside phrase too. Pat

  3. She is adorable! I, of course, love the colors you chose. And I really like how the music notes travel beyond the original piece onto the rest of the card. The stool looks great too...I can tell the darker strips are satin.
