This month I used two very simple techniques: stamping with a Kaleidacolor stamp pad and adding ribbon 'tags' along the side of a piece. This is a quick and easy card. The great thing about Kaleidacolor ink is that you get a variety of colors in one inking of a stamp. For me, this is great when you don't feel like coloring. For the kaleidoscope of ribbons on the end, you can use a series of ribbons like I did below, or you can use scraps. It's a nice way to use some favorite, but small, ribbons.

In addition to using Mimi with a birthday cake, I used sweet friend birthday for the sentiment and the party time stamp set to finish the front of the card.

Thanks for stopping by. The next stop is Greta Hess. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  6. So cute! I love using rainbow pads, but don't do it very often. The ribbon tags are a great idea--I can never bear to throw out even a small piece, so I'll remember this idea.
