Quick Tip: Inking/Stamping Stampin, Up! Cotton Ribbon – 127844

Hi Stampers,


Just a wee quick tip:

Below is only a first attempt at colouring plain cotton ribbon (plain ribbon RHS of picture) to match cardstock and make patterns.



Play about with ink and cotton ribbon to make patterns and colours. Not a perfect 1st attempt however I’m pleased with the general effect


I used 7/8″ natural look cotton ribbon (127844), put some reinker into a spritzer bottle and generally played about.

From left – (1 and 2)  I used the stripes from the Dots & Stripes mask, (3) I used the stars from the Hearts & Stars Mask, (4) I used a piece of washi tape down the centre, (5) simply spritzed, (6) the original un-inked cotton ribbon.

Imagine using Gorgeous Grunge Stamps on this. That would be awesome 🙂

Give it a go and let me know how you get on.
