Hip Greetings

Kim is sharing this card on the Paper Smooches Blog today. I know. I'm still in shock that I put ribbon on my card. LOL I've been admiring seam binding for ages now and decided it was time I tried it. I love it so hopefully you'll be seeing more as I branch out into ribbon territory. Eeek! Did I really say that? ;) My card features the sassy zebra from Zoo Crew standing in a mossy patch which I created by stamping the shadow from Hot Concoctions several times with watermark ink. In the background is one of new CHA releases called Timber. I used it as zebra stripes but it could also be tiger stripes, woodgrain or water! The sentiment is a combination of two sentiments from Zoo Crew and Metropolis. The textured green cardstock is from the Esther Collection and the scrap from last week's Metropolis card.

Did you place an order on March 1st and, if so, what did you get? I can't wait to see all the new Paper Smooches stamps at work in your hands!

First I ordered Metropolis, Zoo crew and Dude block, and then I decided that I also wanted some other type of stamps and I put in another order for He said, she said, Houndstooth, Pretty phrases and Whirligigs! Oops!! Ha ha, looking so much forward to them, new goodies to play with are always fun, fun, fun!!!

Wishing you a lovely day!!

That is SO adorable, Emily! The Timber background works perfectly for your cute little zebra. And good for you for branching out into the world of ribbon!! Seam binding is something I've also admired like forever, but I've never tried using any myself. I love what you did with it!!

BTW, I rec'd the most fabulous Pi Day card in the mail this afternoon--from you!! Thank you SO much for making my day. It was such a lovely surprise!! And of course, I just LOVE the mathiness of it ;). My hubby was SO impressed with it, too! You are too sweet!!! THANK YOU!!

Great card, Emily. I covet that woodgrain stamp! And did you dye the seam binding ribbon for this project? Apparently you can do that with re-inker--haven't tried it yet...
