Using Ribbon Technique 101 Blog Hop

Hi everyone, this month’s technique is focused on using ribbon which is a great way to add a pop of colour to your project.
Techniques 101 blog hop
When making a single layer card I always put the adhesive directly onto the card and then stick the ribbon on top of the adhesive.  I have found that putting the double sided tape directly onto the ribbon can make the ribbon go wonky (just going from my past experiences lol).

Today’s share is using the Watercolor Words stamp set, it has some fantastic outline images and sayings making it is a pretty versatile set.  I coloured the flowers by picking up the ink from the lid of an ink pad using a blender pen.

I kept the inside nice and simple by just stamping and colouring some flowers and leaves.

Measurements for card
– Whisper White Thick card 14.8cm x 21cm (scored in half at 10.5cm)
– White Thick Bakers Twine 45cm
Basic Instruction when making this card
1. Put the adhesive directly onto the card and then stick the ribbon on top of the adhesive.
2. Stamp flowers and leaves on the front and inside of the card.
3. Colour flower and leaves by picking up ink from the lid of the ink pad using a blender pen.  To transfer ink onto the lid you need to squeeze the top centre portion of the closed lid of a Stampin’ Up! ink pad (as below).

4. Stamp the saying onto the front of the card making sure to use a darker coloured ink so that it stands out.
5. Add some sparkle by adhering some rhinestones to the centre of the flowers.
6. Wrap white thick bakers twine around the card and tie a double knot at the front.
