Technique Tuesday–Dyeing Ribbon

Technique Tuesday Blog HopWelcome to this month's episode of Technique Tuesday Blog Hop where Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from across the globe join together to inspire you with a papercrafting technique.  March Feature:  Ribbon Techniques!

I love, love, love ribbon on handmade cards.  They add touchable texture and can be customized–what's not to love??!!!  For today's handmade card share, I'm featuring how to dye ribbon.

This technique is super simple, easily accessible to new card-makers but loved by veteran crafters.  One of my recent discoveries is how cool the Windowpane Check Ribbon looks when you dye it!  With its white background, it's a natural for adding color.


With the beautiful mountains featured in Enjoy the Journey Designer Paper, you have an obvious focal point.  I used another piece of Enjoy the Journey Designer Paper for the background and a few dots for accent. 

My handmade card needed "a little something" and I reached for my favorite Windowpane Check Ribbon.  The color wasn't quite right, so I simply grabbed my Mint Macaron Dark Stampin' Blend to soften the white and tie the ribbon into my card base color.  Voila!  A little something that ties together all the components of my handmade card and elevates the whole design.

Now head on over to the next blog for more Ribbon Technique inspiration!
