It's All Black and White.....with some Red

Happy Thursday! Today I have a project for the current Artful Inkables Challenge. In case you didn't know, every other Tuesday a Design Team member will issue a new challenge. The best part is- you have a chance to win some stamps for participating!

The current challenge runs through August 31st Midnight Pacific time and all you need to do is to make a card or project using the colors Red, Black and White. Once your project is posted in an online gallery or on your blog link it to this post HERE to for a chance to win a Grab Bag of Artful Inkables stamps!

I decided to make a Post-It Note Holder for the challenge. I used the new release South of the Border which is one of my favorite sets! It's so versatile and you get a lot of stamps for the price.

The holder is made using two chipboard coasters and covering them with paper. I used my Crop-a-dile to punch the holes and set the jumbo eyelets. I then threaded the ribbon through the holes and tied them. I left a little bit of slack in the ribbon to make opening the holder easier. Next, I took my stamped image and added it to the front. I have a confession....I did use a tiny bit of green on the peppers. I just had to. ssshhhh!!

Once the Post It note holder was decorated I just took some Post-its and put them inside. To make sure they stayed put, I used a tiny bit of glue on the back piece of paper.

I added my finishing touches including Stickles and a popped up Chili Pepper that I stamped and cut out. Voila! I now have the perfect little gift to give someone that I happen to think is "Hot Stuff".

Stamps: Artful Inkables South of the Border
Paper: Making Memories PP, PTI White and Pure Poppy
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and asst. markers
Accessories: Pewter Jumbo Eyelets, Chipboard Coasters, Nestabilities, Stickles, PTI Pure Poppy ribbon

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you play along with us. Good luck!!
