Last month I missed playing along since we were traveling, but when I saw that this was the weekend of the Market Street Stamps Block Party, I was excited to have time to play along today! Here is what I made:
I started off by stamping the Punched Tin background on a shape cut out with a Spellbinders Nestabilities in Linen Papertrey ink. Then, after embossing the same shape with the same die, I left it masked off, and inked the edges a bit with some Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen. I then stamped the sentiment over the top of that.
I used some background paper from an older Cosmo Cricket 6x6 paper pad, also inked with Tim Holtz distress ink, only in Vintage Photo. 
I wrapped some crinkle ribbon in 3 different colors around, and tied them in bows along the side. 
Finished off by adding a couple brads to the side of the framed panel, then attaching it with pop-dots so it stood out a little! 
Thanks for stopping by to visit!!! I used to look at blogs that got lots of comments, and wonder if that blogger read all the comments they received - but I realized this last week that I am getting more comments than I realized - and reading every single one! They always brighten my day - so thank you!!!


  1. This is so beautiful. I love the colors. They are so "me".

  2. I think that crinkle ribbon is so pretty. And you used it perfectly on that card. Love it.

  3. Beautiful sentiment..Love the brads:)

  4. So all the ribbon! Lee-Ann :)

  5. This is ever so pretty! LOVE your tin background and scrumptious, seam binding bows, and that sentiment always leaves me breathless! Thanks so much for playing along with us this month at Market Street Stamps!

  6. I got goose pimples (good ones!) from your card! I LOVE the sentiment! It's just so true. I remember hearing a speaker once who told us that, when we look back, the best things in life have most often come as a result of the worst experiences that we've had. As I look back, I can say that it true - and I always try to remember this as I'm going through trials.

    You've done such a wonderful job framing the sentiment and adding rows of pretty ribbon. GREAT job, Heather!

  7. Boy Heather... it's been a long time since I have had time to visit and WOW! You have really made such beautiful creations! Took a good long time and checked them all out and I can't believe how much I had missed! Hopefully, it wont take so long to get back next time. Love them all!

  8. Heather ~ BEAUTIFUL card! Simply BEAUTIFUL!! I LOVE hwo you did your ribbon too! Great design!!!
