PTI Stamp-a-faire: Ribbon Techniques Challenge - Erin's Technique

Ahhhh, the weekend I've been waiting a year for!  Last year was Papertrey Ink's first annual Stamp-a-faire event.  It was held in Cincinnati and I was so fortunate to be able to attend.  It was awesome getting to meet in person all the wonderful PTI Gals whose blogs I read on a weekly basis!  I am so thankful that I had (and took) the opportunity to go last year, because ...

This year's Stamp-a-faire event was held online!  The PTI Gals did a fabulous job this year with all of the tutorials, videos, challenges, and forum chatting.  It was even better than I'd expected!  If you would like to check it out for yourself, you can find out all about it here.

The first challenge for the day was the Ribbon Techniques Challenge.  Each DT member provided a technique/tutorial utilizing a different ribbon technique and our challenge is to utilize one of them in a replica project or in one of our own.  If you would like to play along, you can find out all about it here.

At this point in the day, my 10 yr-old decided that she wanted to get in on the SAF fun, so we worked together and used Erin's technique for this project.  

The third heart is backed with red grosgrain ribbon topped with a stripe of multi-colored grosgrain.  The white panel is "popped" up from the red card base and the heart cut-outs let that red color show through.

Misc. ribbon from my ancient stash, heart die from A*Muse, and the rest of the supplies are from PTI.

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
