Guest Stamper


My guest stamper is Tami Waddell, my upline and friend from California. I love how she cut the wide Burlap Ribbon into a narrow width to layer with Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding!


Look closely - Tami "burnished" the Mossy Meadow Carsdstock! She used a Gold Encore ink Pad and Stamping Sponge. By rubbing lightly over the dry embossed image with an inked sponge, the result is a subtle golden detail on the raised areas. TRY IT!

Ribbon Weaving Tutorial


Add a bunch of texture to your papercrafting with RIBBON WEAVING!


I used 2-1/2" Circle Punch, Fast Fuse strong adhesive, and 2 ribbons. First apply adhesive around the outside edge of the punched circle hole.


Lightly attach one color of ribbon acrossed the opening (yellow.) Then weave the second color ribbon thru the first...just like you made potholders as a child!


Press all woven ribbon ends firmly onto adhesive. TIP: try different widths and textures of ribbons! Use up ribbon scraps...I know you have them!


Finish the card - this is the inside. And...

100_4782 is a DARLING finished project!! Ribbon weaving is also PERFECT for baby cards!! Try Ribbon Weaving to add texture to your cards!!
