Ways to Use it Thursday!

Published by at 5:27 am under My Creations

 Hello!! I was soooo excited to see that the Ways to use it challenge over at Splitcoaststampers  was “Heavy Metal” this week! My bud Julia hosts this challenge every Thursday. You can see more here.

I made this card around the ribbon…I just HAD to use it, I love it! 🙂 However, my original plan was a disaster! lol. I thought I’d use my hostess set Flowers for a Friend. I’ve only used that MAYBE twice. By the end of the card I had red ink everywhere, I had bent the card putting some brads in …. SIGH… lol. So I tore the brads back out and started again. I hadn’t used Artifacts in AGES, so it was fun to pull it out. Made me sad to remember though, that I lost the cool rod iron looking X sorta thing. Oh well! 🙂 This is the first picture I took with my Ott lights. I have a table top one and just got a floor lamp today from Joann’s..they are all half off this week! 😉 It’s awesome!!!! 🙂 Here’s my card:

    Hey! Stamping Through the Tulilps is ME! 🙂 Your blog one of my favorites, too! I think it’s even cooler that I got to meet you at convention last year through Justine (Jus Colorado)…and several of us sat together at the SCS dinner. So nice to have a face and personality to put together with the blog.

    This ribbon is beautiful, I’d have tried to work it in, too!!

  4. another great card – too bad I traded this set away or I would definitely CASE it! 🙂

    Love your card! The stripes in red are awesome – a nautical feel. This would make a great father’s day card – almost patriotic too! A definite case card.

  6. I just love this look Lindsey! So great for a guy! You make the best guy cards! Love all those stripes and the great colors!
