Lovely & Quick Greeting Cards with Eileen Hull Designs and Stampendous

I am very happy to be sharing a quick DIY for some Lovely Greeting Cards using Eileen Hull Designs and Stampendous products!

Here is the supplies list:
Eileen Hull Designs Sizzix Die # 658978 - Ribbon, 3D
Stampendous Stamp Set - Pen Pattern Repeat (see below for image/link)
Stampendous - Spoonful of Confetti
Stamp Ink Pad
Craft Glue - My favorite is Aleene's Turbo Tacky
Embossing heat gun
Card stock for greeting cards and to cut the ribbons
Colored burlap (I used burlap from a DCVW stack)
Optional:  buttons, sequins, twine, colored pens

Step 1:  You need to cut the ribbons using your Sizzix Big Shot machine.  I used white card stock to cut my ribbons and - of course - the Eileen Hull Designs Ribbon, 3-D die.

Step 2:   Once the ribbons are cut, you can begin to stamp, color and decorate them.  The ribbons are flat when cut and after you decorate them you can fold them and glue them to become 3-D (see Step 3.)  For the orange ribbon card, I used the Stampendous Spoonful of Confetti and my embossing heat gun.  Because the ribbon is somewhat thin, I used a very thin coat of craft glue on the paper and then added the Spoonful of Confetti and then used my embossing heat gun - the result is a bright and festive ribbon.

I used the Stampendous Pen Pattern Repeat set and I loved that this set gives endless options and can be used for any occasion.  Here is what the set looks like:
Step 3:  After your ribbons are decorated, you can glue (the ribbon needs to be fold/created) them using a craft glue such as Aleene's Turbo Tacky.  I used a clothespin to help secure the center and then to add the center embellishments - I used buttons by Buttons Galore/Laura Kelly Designs!

Step 4:  Now you can add the decorated ribbon to a greeting card.  I used kraft colored cards and some colorful burlap scraps as a background for my ribbons.  You can use craft glue to adhere the ribbon to the card.
These cards were actually very easy and will certainly be brighten someone's day!

Have you used any Stampendous products lately?  If so, what products are your favorite - let me know in the comments.

Happy Crafting!
