Rhode Island Regional Swap #3

Today is the last day of my full reveals of the swaps I made for Regionals.  Are you sad???  Don't worry!  My next post will feature projects from my Button Buddies class as well as a sneak peek at the upcoming Embellished Events class.

My final swap was one I made for an organized swap with the ladies of SUDSOL.  I wanted to make a fun Halloween card that featured a lot of the new products from the Holiday Catalog.

I apologize for the off centering of this photo!  I made a big boo boo and accidentally deleted the full image of this card front.  Don't you hate when you do that?  I went with this picture instead because you can see the most of the card front!

Are you wondering what new products are featured here?  See the Stampin' Supplies list below.  Anything with a * next to it is new and featured in the Holiday Catalog.

Have you ever worked on a project and wanted just the right type of ribbon but didn't have it?  Maybe a patterned ribbon, or one in a specific color?  One that has a sentiment on it?  Then the new 7/8" Cotton Ribbon is for you!

This ribbon is so great because you can stamp on!  It works beautifully with our Classic Stampin' Pads. The Border Banter stamp set is made just for this purpose, but there are no limits to what you can stamp on the ribbon.  My favorite is stamping the sentiment on the ribbon.  I think it just adds an extra special touch to your project.

Stampin' Tip!
To make a very faint pattern on the ribbon, as I have done here with the Gumball Green chevron pattern, ink up your stamp and then stamp it off on a piece of scratch paper (or Stampin' Up! Grid Paper!) and then stamp on the ribbon.  This give you a subtle hint of color and pattern.  Try it out!
