I'm finally back with the remaining projects I showed on stage at the Fort Worth Regional Conference! In case you missed the first post, see HERE. The technique I showed for my Workshop Wow presentation was how to add a decorative edge to your ribbon.
The get the decorative edge on this ribbon, I ran the Marina Mist grosgrain ribbon through the Big Shot with the Perfect Setting die. I layed my ribbon along the edge of the napkin ring to get this fun decorative edge. I ran Sticky Strip along the card and then gathered the ribbon a bit as I added it to the card. I also added the pearls and some Very Vanilla 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.
Here is a close up of the ribbon:
I took this close up picture before I added the Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink to the ribbon. The ribbon on the card I showed on stage was sparkly because I had added the Smooch. The snowflake image is from the stamp set Jolly Bingo Bits, and the sentiment is from the set Four the Holidays.
Another card I showed on stage also used the set Jolly Bing Bits from the Holiday Mini Catalog. This is the poinsettia image, but I was hoping it looked just 'daisy-ish' enough to use for a non-holiday card. I stamped with Versamark Ink and then embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.
For this card I took my Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon and ran it though the Big Shot with the Pennant die. I just layed my ribbon along that scallop edge of the pennant to get this fun edge.
And a close up:
I hope you've enjoyed learning more about this fun technique! I know I will definitely be using by Big Shot and ribbon together a lot more now. :-)
Oh, and one last photo--here's me on stage during my 5 minutes of fame. :-)
