Just Add Ink Challenge # 163 - Take 2

Hi Everyone,

Well it's official.  I have to admit a have an addiction.  The first step is admitting it, right? 
My addiction is Ribbon.  I seem to collect it and it accumulates far quicker than I can ever use it up.  It's a difficult habit to kick, and I must force myself to use some up as storage of it has become an issue.

I created the background of this card behind the Floral Framelits Window with some ribbon strips, in an effort to start using a little more, before I start collecting once again from the new catalogue when it starts in July.  I'm entering this card in the Just Add Ink Fun Background challenge this week.  You should pop over and take a look at all the entries this week.  Some are out of this world, amazing.

Here is my card.  I think what was to be a fun background has really turned into more of a feature on my card. 

The cardstock is Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Daffodil Delight and Rose Red.  I've used Floral Framelits, Medallion Stamp, Well Scripted Retired stamp and Elegant & Bitty Butterfly punches. 

Looks like I need to give the rubber on that Medallion stamp a bit of a sand before I use it again.

If there are any other Ribbon Addicts out there, I encourage you to try and use a little each day.

Have a great day.


  1. Great way to use up some ribbon. Glad to see I'm not the only one with a large stash of ribbon!

  2. Ah, you are not alone, Carolyn! I have way more ribbon than I could possibly use. This is such a fun way to create a background/feature. Lovely card!

  3. This is so pretty! Do I need a bigger ribbon collection now?! hmmm...Vx

  4. What a great idea. And I have ribbon everywhere to....Love it! Chantell JAI

  5. Hahaha - you're probably not alone on the addiction thing Carolyn - although I'll go you one further - I'm addicted to every aspect of stamping stuff!
    What a fabulous card - this is such a great way to use up those bits of ribbon laying around - loving that combination you've used! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!

    1. Thanks Narelle, yes I'm addicted to the other stuff too, but I'm always buying the new ribbons.

  6. Very cool idea Carolyn! Thanks so much for playing along with us at JAI this week!
