He everyone! Welcome to this week's Ribbon Inspiration Stamp Simply Style. This week we are showcasing TWILL RIBBON. Twill is one of my favorite ribbons! It adds a lot of texture to any card.
My card uses the Antique Gold Twill ribbon accented with a Poinsettia from the Holiday Celebration flower pack. The pattern paper is from Dear Mr. Clause from Cosmo Cricket and I added a few rhinestones as accents. My card is also for the CAS-ual Friday's challenge, Over the Edge -which has an element going over the edge of your card.
Here is another card I posted several months ago using twill ribbon and Gluber glue dots (original post here) along with some pictures showing how I used the Gluber Dots to make the ribbon blossom.
You start by putting a small knot in the end of your ribbon. Place that in the middle of your Gluber (I used the 2" size), it becomes the center. Start rolling the ribbon and wrapping it around the center. When you finish "rolling and sticking" your ribbon down, tuck the end under the gluber to glue it down (see the second pic). However, that part will not be sticky to your card, so add a dab of glue to it before you stick the Gluber down.
Each week we will have fabulous Blog Candy (this week's is pictured below) made up of the ribbons that we feature. The winner will be drawn from comments on one of today’s participating blogs, one comment per blog, please. The winner will be selected at 6 p.m. EST on Tuesday, November 8th and posted on Sharon's blog on Wednesday.
Here is the list of today's participants:
