Coloring to coordinate the ribbon.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! This is the day we don’t have inky fingers. Yes, that’s right. No inky fingers.

So here is what you do. To color a ribbon you grab any shade of Stampin’ Blends (alcohol marker) that you want and color away. You will need to color a bit beyond where you want to finish so you don’t have any lighter spots or bleed. Let dry about a minute and you are ready to tie your bow.

At the same time you can grab your Craft Whisper White Pad and only ink the area of the pad you will need to stamp. Don’t waste the ink making the entire pad juicy. Then stamp after taking the static out of the card stock. Shortly after stamping you will want to cover with your chosen embossing powder (clear is used here). The last step is to take your heat tool and melt the powder until it becomes smooth and no longer has an individual crystal look to it.

Here is the video if you would like to watch how to create these cards.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Storage options!

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today’s blog post is not really a tutorial for a creation but instead how to get organized. In case you haven’t noticed Stampin’ Up! has a new storage system.

And here’s what it looks like in my studio…

I love that all the markers, pencils, and blends are in the same place.

Here is the video link for how it goes together and some questions answered. https://youtu.be/WImPQFP9TDo

Happy Crafting!
