3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon "Back to Spool" Special

Card made with Stampin'UP! set, Betsy's Blossoms and the 3/8" Satin Stitched Ribbon.
Have you heard about Stampin'UP!'s "Back to Spool" special? Here is one project made with that gorgeous 3/8" Satin Stitched Ribbon. 

The ribbon makes a pretty divider. For this project I used the ribbon as a divider between the stamped area and the embossed area.  My personal choice is to use something to separate these two areas, sometimes its a strip of coordinating colored paper, maybe punched with a border punch. Ribbons work well as a divider, sometimes with a bow or a knot and in this case without the knot.  

The Stamped images on top, the flower and the leaves are from a set called Betsy's Blossoms.  The flower was so big that I felt it needed just a little bling. Stampin'UP!'s new Dhalias are perfect.  I just couldn't decide which color to use.

Stampin'UP! Dahlia used to embellish the center of the flower stamp,Aren't these Dahlaias gorgeous?  They have a large flat side which makes them really easy to adhere to a project.  They come in an assortment pack of all 5 of the 2012-2014 In Colors - which means they match all the ribbons that are part of the September "Back to Spool Special".

Well, thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you are having a great Labor Day weekend. Our weather is perfect, we're enjoying lake activities and some hiking.  But of course, later I'll find a little relaxing stamping time too. I hope you get to relax and enjoy some of your favorite passtimes this weekend too.

One thing to do this weekend is to take inventory of your consumables and see what you can replenish in terms of papers, embellishments, inks and adhesives.  A $40 purchase gets you a FREE roll of this gorgeous satin stitched ribbon.  Click here to shop now.

Happy Stamping
