Mom gifted me this gorgeous wired ribbon, and since it looks like little Xs, I paired it with a circle stamp from CAS-ual Stamps (which I recently won from the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!) to make a "Hugs & Kisses" card.

To make the circles, I inked a white coated cardboard from some packaging with red ink, sprayed it & heated to for a watercolor effect, and coated it with clear embossing powder to set the ink. The circles are cut out with the "Fun Filled Rings" die from Spellbinders Celebra’tions collection. I couldn't find my "xoxo" stamp, so I did it myself with letter stamps. The white panel is popped with foam tape off of the embossed background.

  1. The ribbon 'kisses' look great and the treatment on the circles adds lots of texture too! Really creative. Thanks for sharing with us at Less Is More :)

  2. Oh, this is so clever! I love the theme, the colour and the layout. Fabulous!

  3. The inking on the circles complements that awesome wired ribbon perfectly. Your hand stamping with letter stamps is great.
