Back with the Ribbon Projects

Thanks for stopping back today. We told you we would be back with some great projects using ribbon in a different way and here we are. Stampin' Up! has so many great ribbons that we simply need to find as many ways to use it as we can. Or that's our opinion anyway. We hope you leave inspired to try some or all of these ribbons projects on your own.

Here is Karla's little project. She made a votive holder with the Poetry Prints Designer Series Paper Pack. There is more photos on her blog head on over to take a look.

 Look at this adorable little altered canvas bag using the two-tone pink pirourette  1 1/4" ribbon. Debbie did a great job with this one and you will certainly want to head over to Debbie's blog for all the details so you can recreate this beauty for yourself.
Rachel used the same ribbon that Debbie used to make a ribbon rosette pin.  Guess it would coordinate nicely with her bag. Head over to Rachel's blog for more details on how to re-create this pin for yourself.

Thanks for stopping by, see you next Friday for another Fabulous Friday posting.

That's right I said Pinning-- as in Pintrest?? All of the Sisters are on Pintrest these days and we have some "Pinspirations" to show you this week (get it, Pins and inspiration??) Here is my (Karla) card for this week--

I am fairly new to Pintrest (I only have 1,247 pins) but I love it! I used the new Photopolymer stamp set called Designer Type. You'll have to go to my blog to see the Pin that inspired me.

Fun and fabulous techniques featuring stampin' ink refills

  Happy Friday and welcome back for another edition of Fabulous Friday here on the Sisters in Stamping blog!  This week we are featuring techniques that utilize stampin' ink refills.  These little bottles are great to keep on hand for re-inking your ink pads but did you know that they are useful for many stampin' techniques as well?!  And at $2.95 each they are a bargain!  Get them with free shipping this weekend only April 6-8... contact your demonstrator to place your order.

    First up we have this beautiful card designed by Rachel Yurkanin.  She used the Acetate Smoosh technique to create the fabulous backdrop for her trees from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set - please hop on over to her blog here to get all the details on her project.

  Next we have this fabulous card created by Karla Anders.  She used the Reverse Reinker Spread technique for her project and you can find all the information about it on her blog post here.

  I invited my team member Jennifer Rawlings to be a guest designer with us this week and she created this stunning card featuring three different techniques using ink refills.  Check out the blog post here for all the information about her card.

  I, like Rachel, chose the Acetate Smoosh technique for my project this week.  You will find a step-by-step tutorial on my blog post here for this card and technique featuring the Swallowtail stamp set from the Spring catalog.

  Thanks so much for visiting us today!  We hope you found some inspiration and will pull out your stampin' ink refills to try one or more of these techniques!  And if you don't have any ink refills we hope we've given you some reasons to purchase some.  Have a wonderful weekend!!
