Ribbons Galore

Have you seen the latest range of ribbons by Stampin' Up!®? Other than the gorgeous Ribbon Originals which come in packs of 6 styles @ 1.8m length each, you can purchase ribbons by the roll. The striped grosgrain ribbon is perfect for sporty cards and layouts - reminds me of the trim on sport socks!
The double-stitched ribbon is a perfect complement to the new range of In Colors. And, as usual, the grosgrain ribbon matches a range of colours from the four classic Stampin' Up! colour families ... with the new addition of wider ribbon for greater impact. I've made up a ribbon sampler of these ribbons to show people how they look and feel in real life - so book a workshop with me and you can experience them in their full galorey ... ie glory!

Thanks Kylie! You are most welcome to keep looking BUT they are so much nicer in real life - have yours arrived yet ? The papers are beautiful too!

These sample rings look great! Can I be rude and ask what you put on the ends of the ribbonto make them?
I've only seen a couple of colours and types of new ribbon so far, but my share packs should arrive this week - can't wait!

Lin Mei said...

Hey Kari! I'm sure you'll get your share packs very soon.

Rude? Hardly! I used my Cuttlebug with some longish tag dies on cardstock covered with contact - to make it more water resistant. The tags had a hole punched at each end. I then folded the tag in half, cut a slit in the fold and slotted the ribbon through the slit and stapled it one side. Finished up with an eyelet through the holes to hold it all together - and a label of the colour. Oh! I also used some Ribbon Stiff to stop the edges from fraying.

Thank you!!! Will have to find that die set for my 'bug and get busy!! That is a great idea!
Oh and got my ribbons yesterday! Bee-yoo-tiful!

Lin Mei said...
