Pleated Ribbon Border

Hello one and all. I saw this trick done once and I loved it so much that I thought I would share it will all of you. I hope you love it as much as I do. If you find the video a little hard to see, I have also added two picture of what the project looks. I think it’s time I got a video recorder…

 

Here is a picture of the ribbon all folded over.

And here is a picture of what it looks like on the finished card.

Starting your Crafting Hobby

So many people would love to start making their own cards because it’s fun and meaningful. The value of a hand made card is so much more then one bought form a dollar store. People feel loved and appreciated when someone has gone to the effort to make them something. I have seen this time and time again.

I love making a difference in people’s lives and I would love to help others make a difference in their friends lives too. That is one of the reason’s I started selling Stampin’ Up! product. But when I hand people the catalogue and they really want to get something, they look and look and then put it down saying, “there is so much in there, I have no idea where to start.” They end up not getting anything and I feel bad that I was not able to help them in their desire to make a difference.

So I finally came up with my idea of a good starter kit. I also made a video on how to use these products. I hope this inspires you as much as it inspires me.

  • Stampin’ Dimensionals (regular or mini) $5.25
  • Stampin’ Mist $6.00
  • Stampin’ Scrub $22.50
  • Whisper White or Very Vanilla cardstock $11.25
  • Cardstock Pack (you chose what colours you like) $10.00
  • Linen Thread $6.25
  • Tuxedo Black Momento Ink Pad $8.00
  • Classic Ink pad (colour of your choice, probably match your cardstock pack) $8.50
  • Stampin’ sponges $4.25
  • Clear block E $16.00
  • second colour of ink $8.5
  • Blender pens $16.00

This brings the total to $122.50 meaning you can either pick 2 level 1 sale-a-bration items, or 1 level 2. I recommend Happy Wishes stamp set.

Clear Embossing With Ink

This is a technique that I picked up from some place I can’t remember. Thank you for whoever showed me this one. I love it. This is how you can Transform any colour of ink you have into an embossed image. Hope you like it!

Here is a better picture of the difference between just stamped with ink, and embossed with clear embossing powder:

Tie a bow

Everyone who has ever taken one of my workshops has asked me, “How do you tie your bows so perfectly?” or, “Can you tie my bows for me?” So I thought I would show you how I do it. Really, like anything else, it takes practice. Keep in mind that different ribbons will handle differently, but with a little persistence, I find this way of tying a bow works almost all the time.

How to ink your stamp

Most people when they first try and stamp a card, don’t really think about how to ink up their stamp. Or how to transfer that ink onto their paper. I mean, it’s simple right? Just put the stamp to the ink pad and then on the paper. Then they are disappointed with their stamped image because there are lines around the edges. If this is you, don’t worry. Everyone has done it. I am here to tell you that there is actually a technique to putting ink on your stamp, and another one for transferring that ink onto your paper so you can avoid those frustrating lines. The most important thing to remember when placing a stamp to an ink pad, or to paper is… NO ROCKING! This is not a rock concert. I hope you like the video.

How to make hills

I don’t know if this technique has a name or not, but my husband likes to call it shadow sponging. Here I will show you how to make hills on your card. You can do with with green for grassy hill, brown for dirt hills, light blue for snowy hills, or whatever you want.
