Blog Hop Stamping technique 101
All about ribbon

Hello Friends 
  Welcome to our monthly Stamping Technique 101 blog hop. So glade you stop by. This month it's all about ribbon. So I choose to showcase the Organza Ribbon I would say it is the most versatile ribbon in this year catalog. Why do I say the most versatile well it is the one that I found the easiest to dye color on. So you can take any color ink you have on hand and have your matching ribbon. I did a video to show you have easy it is to dye this ribbon. You can view the video on my You Tube channel or in today blog post at the bottom.
 I did 4 cards all with the same stamp sets, same measurement and use all different color ink to show you the possibility with this ribbon. The flowers, layer card stock are the color that I dye the ribbon, I list each card with the color choice. 

Measurement of all cards are 
-Whisper White 8½ x 5½ score at 4¼ fold in half card base 
-Layer color of your choice card stock 5 x 3¾ 
-Whisper White 4¾ x 3½ *piece that you stamp on 

Plus in the video I share how to make a cheap bow or some call it a faux bow all in the video. 
Well my Friends make sure to scroll down to hop to she all the global creation.
