And if the Sew Ribbon weren’t enough to have your heart palpitating with excitement, today’s guest blogger, the infinitely talented and highly published Roree Rumph, will have you weak in the knees with her amazing creations.

Hey everyone! Roree here, and today I have some cards to share with you that I created with the We R Memory Keepers Sew Ribbon. This is a really fun and easy tool to use and it is perfect for cards (which I love to make.)
First off are a couple of cards I made using the Sew Ribbon Weave.
I created a stem for the flower using the Sew Ribbon Green Ribbon. I added a few brads in the spaces between the ribbon, looped a piece of ribbon, and tucked it behind the laced ribbon for a leaf.
Using the same Sew Ribbon Weave, I made a quick and easy card with a rainbow of ribbon-stitched lines.
This card ‘pops’ with all of the rows of colorful ribbon.
For the next card, I used the Sew Ribbon Shoelace.
I made a frame around my card with the orange ribbon. To create the frame, I place the Sew Ribbon along the top and bottom of the card and punched. For the sides, I flipped the paper over to punch. It kept the ribbon slanting in the same direction.
For the next two cards I used the Sew Ribbon Leaf. This one was my favorite!
For the first card, I created a patterned background with the aqua ribbon. I punched two rows together, and I added some large brads to the center of each pair.
I really love how this one turned out!
Here is my last card:
Instead of starting and stopping the threading at the edges, I started threading the ribbon at the inside from the front, reached it around the back, and finished threading it on the other side. This allowed me to finish by tying the ends together in a bow.
It seems like the options are endless with these fun tools, and I can’t wait to try it out on more projects. Thanks so much for letting me share my cards with you today. Have a great day!
