Saturday Challenge # 12--Ribbon!

This week's challenge is to use ribbon! I have lots of ribbon, and I tend to hoard it, just like everything else. On this card I have used 3 different kinds of ribbon.
I was inspired by Kristina Werner who posted a video tutorial for ribbon weaving. See that video here. I'll try to make a photo tutorial this week for those who can't/won't watch video online.
Last night, we had our monthly craft night at church, and I actually got a lot done for once. I worked on some of the make and takes from Regionals that I hadn't finished. I made a Mother's Day gift for my mom (super cute AND in her favorite color), but of course, I can't show you that until after Mother's Day. I did this ribbon weaving piece. I made a little clipboard from a CD for my desk at work, and I made a double pocket card. That's probably the most I have EVER gotten done. I usually forget something that I need that stops me in my tracks. Last night, I didn't have anything in particular that HAD to get done, and I had several things to work on. Plus, I always love hanging out with Rhonda and Pauline. And Rhonda gave me the pink taffeta ribbon that I used on the card. Thanks, Rhonda!
The color combo for the card is from SCS this week: Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink. I started with the celery ribbon, which is from Fairy Tales Ribbon Originals. I adhered (or adhesed, as Jaron would say!) it to a Chocolate Chip mat. The card base is Pretty in Pink. I stamped the Sanded background onto it multiple times in different directions and then sponged pink around the edges. I used Sticky Strip to adhere, adhese the Chocolate Chip twill ribbon to the pink taffeta. I used the horizontal slot punch to notch the edge of the card for the ribbon to go through. I cut a separate piece of pink taffeta to make the knot, and I added a ribbon slide to the knot. The rub-on is from the retired SAB set. (I tried rub-ons on the celery ribbon, but it was too textured for the rub-on to stick.) I took 3 small flowers from the Pretties Kit and removed them from their stems. (They just slide off.) I smooshed them onto my PIP spot, spread the color with an aquapainter, and heat set them to dry. I put them back on the stems and stuck the stems down into the ribbon seams. I used mini glue dots stacked on top of each other to adhere the flowers to the ribbon.
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Sanded; Paper: Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink; Ink: Pretty in Pink; Accessories: Fairy Tale Ribbon Originals, Chocolate Chip polytwill ribbon, Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon, Love & Happiness rub-ons, Pretties kit, Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware, horizontal slot punch
Give my ribbon challenge a try and post a link to your card here. Use ISC12 as a keyword if you post to SCS.
Happy stamping!

P.S. I think I should explain the whole adhesed thing. Jaron Winder said at Regionals that he thinks we should say "adhese" instead of "adhere" because we are using adhesive. He said that he told Shelli Gardner that, and Shelli told him he should find another job... He is hilarious!
