Nite Nite Ellie

Today, I played with Nite Nite Ellie. The concept for this stamp set came from my friend, Jen del Muro. You read more about this set HERE directly from Jen. If you click over you can read about the charity that this set benefits as well as see a picture of her sweet daughter, Ellie. :)

I started with a door hanger. I got the idea from my friend Michele Boyer who made an AMAZING one that you can see HERE.

I stamped Ellie in black ink and colored her with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I added some simple embellishments. I have no clue where I got the background piece of patterned paper. I am sure I was drawn to it because of the ribbon... and the stitching. :) To tie in the paper with the other elements of the project, I stitched on one of the layers. I actually broke one of my own rules and made a "cross" with the ribbon. The ribbon on the paper is running vertically, but the real ribbon is horizontal. To make it LESS of an infraction, I used organdy ribbon... which is so see-through that it's like it's not really there... but it is. LMBO! Yes, I am justifying! The rule above all other rules is:
  • If you try something on your card and it looks good, go with it... EVEN if it breaks a rule you otherwise follow.

TIP: I added some silver brads for a little pizazz and tied a button on with the organdy ribbon. Want to tie ribbon through your button? Cut it at an EXTREME angle and feed one side of your end through just like it was thread. Just yank really hard to get it through. I am sure there is a limit to which ribbon will REALLY fit, but all I have tried have worked. :)

Here is a card I came up with using the stamp set.

I hope you all are having a wonderful day! I have been holed up in my stamp room creating away and I MUST say that I REALLY love having my ribbon organized. It is SO easy to find matching ribbon now. YAY! If you missed it, you can view my new ribbon organization HERE.
