Stamp Simply.... Pipe up!

Hi all! TGIF! Time for another Stamp Simply challenge and this one is all about piping up!

For those who sew, this challenge will make a lot of sense! You know the "piping" that you see on pillow cases, pillows, on trim? It's that thin pop of color that is added to a sewing project to bring a pop of contrast! Well, that my friends, is what Sharon Johnson wants you to try on your card! Basically, a narrow strip of paper to separate two other pieces of paper!

My card could not be any easier!
I used some Making Memories paper, some border strips from the same collection, and my piping can be found in my black strip! I added some fun May Arts ribbon that actually looks like a crocheted edge! Add some layered Nesties - one for your sentiment (SU) and the other for your mat. I ran my black mat through my Wizard with my Swiss Dots embossing folder for a little something extra.

My favorite part?? The bling of course!

Easy peasy card! You'll have to stop by to see what the other Stamp Simply gals cooked up!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you make time for play time this weekend!

Oh this is so pretty. I really like the white scallopy paper. It just sets off the image so nicely!

Hi Julie! I love the colors and the bling - simplicity meets classy - and it's a real winner! I had to laugh at the sewing reference because one time I sewed an entire dress inside out. I threw it in the trash & went shopping and never sewed again! But hey, THIS kind of piping I can handle baby! Have a great week!
