Now on to this week's fabulous color challenge:

Did you know that you can use our new Blendabilities Markers to color ribbon? That's what I did for my Organza Ribbon on my card below:

The markers color beautifully and dry so quickly! No more getting them wet with inks and waiting for them to dry! And I added some paper piercing at the bottom of my card and followed the holes with my White Signo Gel Pen! The Work Of Art stamp set truly does make a card look like a work of art doesn't it?

Stampin' Up! Supplies:

Thanks for stopping by to visit!



  1. Beautiful card Debbie, love the color combo. I didn't know we could color the ribbon...thanks for the tip! I cased another one of your "Work of Art" cards on my blog today. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Love that stamp set! So easy to create beautiful works of art! And what a super idea to color the ribbon! Those blendabilities have so many great uses! Thanks for sharing that! Gorgeous card!!

  8. That bow is gorgeous...love it colored! Smart idea about using the Gel Pen in the piercing holes to give them more definition, too! Great job with the color challenge this week!

  9. Wow! What a gorgeous design! You did so many cool things on this card!! I think my favorite is the organza ribbon colored with blendabilities, looks so gorgeous in Coastal Cabana!
