pti ribbon techniques

Me again. If my husband and the kids stay out for a while then I may be popping in here a few times during today! Hope that's OK and you don't feel bombarded by posts from me.

Next on the stamp-a-faire schedule - ribbon techniques. I chose to work with Erin's ribbons behind a negative die cut. I guess if you know me this isn't a surprise as I love using the negatives from dies. I layered red and green twill behind the negative from an apple die cut and matched it with Teachers Apple stamps set.




Here's a close up to see that layered ribbon.


I added the button to hide the transition from red to green - straight lines don't suit and apple! The ribbon adds a lovely texture and makes a great change from simple card stock.

Supplies: Stamps - Papertrey Ink teachers apple; Ink - Versafine onyx black; Ribbon - Papertrey Ink pure poppy, ripe avocado; Button - Papertrey Ink simply chartreuse; Twine - The Twinery maraschino

Wow Debby, this looks fabulous. I have just been using my Papertrey Teacher's Apple stamp set, really love the sentiments!

I must try this negative die technique with ribbon, it really does look wonderful.

Enjoy the rest of your day.
