These fives ladies all taught/shared with us some of their fave things and each had a pennant designed for us to CASE (Copy and Share Everything).
Each of them had such a passion for their job, Stampin UP and especially for Summer Starfruit and Chevrons - I can tell ya, those are going to be super popular in papercrafting!!
One of the tricks I learned was how to make ombre ribbon out of the new 7/8" Cotton Ribbon (127844 - $9.95). Here's how:
|Cut a length of cotton ribbon|
|Fill one Aqua Painter (103954 - $20.95 for 2) with just isopropyl alcohol and the second Aqua Painter with 1/2 re-inker and 1/2 isopropyl alcohol.|
|Paint 1/2 of the ribbon with the Aqua Painter with reinker/alcohol mixture. Use the just alcohol Aqua Painter to blend the colour through the ribbon. Lay flat to dry or use a heat tool to speed it up the process.|
|Don't use paper towel to blot the moisture off as this is what happened to my coloured ribbon.|
Voila! See that fancy ribbon! If you want to make a darker edge along the ribbon you can run the same colour marker along the edge of the ribbon.
Check back tomorrow and I'll share with you the second tip I received from the Concept Artists!
