Technique Tuesday - Crafting with ribbon.


Hello and welcome,

Thank you for joining me as part of the Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop. Today you will see Demonstrators from around the world and the projects they have created using ribbon as they show you different techniques. 

I chose to colour mine using the Stampin' Blend Markers

When I chose these colours, I had forgotten how much I loved them, I plan to enjoy them more in their last year as they will retire May 2022.

To colour the Crinkled Seam Ribbon I gently used the brush end of the nib and on a piece of scrap paper I placed the nib onto the ribbon and slowly pulled the ribbon along, any bits that got missed I just coloured over it.  

The ribbon dries really quick and was ready to use within in a minute.  You will notice that this ribbon will become slightly stiffer which isn't a bad thing as it is quite a fly away static ribbon. 

Here are two cards that I made using Flowers for Every Season memories and more cards, Jar of Flowers stamp set and the Crinkled Seam ribbon I coloured using Stampin' Blends:

I hope you have enjoyed looking at what I have created.  It is now time for you to carry on with your Crafty Collaborations blog hop and head on over to have a look at what everyone is working on.

 Please see below the supply list of the products used in these projects:

  2. Hi Alison, coloring ribbon with blends allows you to always match the exact colors for your card.
