Altering Ribbon Colour

Hi, Laura here today.  I'm not a card maker, but what I'm showing you is the grey ribbon...

The grey ribbon used to be white.  It's available in the Roses Ribbon Pack.  I altered it with half a drop of India ink mixed in to some water.  Have a small test on an off cut first but most ribbons take colour really well.

I added some Swiss Dots ribbon too, a sequin and a couple of hearts and I was done. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Good Morning peeps

Marg here and its my turn to post this morning on behalf of Crafty Ribbons

Ive made this card as inspiration for you but it may be a time period that some of you dont even remember!!!

Hot Pink Sentiment Ribbon (along with other colours) is a fantastic versatile ribbon that can be used for so many different occasions, as in cutting the ribbon in to little sentiment bits using "Just For You"", "Best Wishes" (not used on this card but comes on the ribbon) and "With Love" or as one long piece or as I have used, 2 of the sentiments to give a lovely effect on such a busy card.
The yellow Ric Rac ribbon, that I used diagonally, can be found Here

I hope you like the card but would like to see more then please go to my blog:

Hi Guys!  It's Laura here today.  I've been having a little experiment with some off cuts of vellum.  I made them in to tiny envelopes stuffed with buttons and sequins, to add to my layouts.

I tried to include every colour and pattern I used in the main cluster in the little side cluster.

Here you can see the vellum envelope along side a picture of Naughty Bun.

This layout came together really quickly using left over papers from Like For Ever kits, with buttons and pink dotty ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Trio from Leah

Hello everyone :)  I hope you are all ready for the summer weather!  I know I am, we had a rough winter up here.  I have created three cards all using the same technique with different colors, stamps and ribbons.
If you would like to see more information about how I made these cards, please visit my blog at

Card Number 1 uses Morlaix Cotton Lace from Crafty Ribbons:

Card Number 2 uses White Seam Binding from Crafty Ribbons:

And Card Number 3 uses Tango Grossgrain Ribbon from Crafty Ribbons!

I love the way there is always something from Crafty Ribbons to match what I am working on.  It's a really good thing, because sometimes I throw caution to the wind and just create, without regard to what I might have for embellishments in the right colors, hahahaha.  I know, what a rebel!  If you need to build up your ribbon stash, Crafty Ribbons is definitely the place to go.  You can buy all ribbons and laces by the yard, and they even have buttons and ribbon embroidery kits!

Good morning to you all

It's Kate here to share some inspiration, and today I have bows, now these bows were not made by me, but I showed the lady who created them how to make them and gave her some of the ribbons too.  She is a dog groomer and uses the bows to add to the finished look on her groomed dogs. So thank you Emma for your photo's.

Just love how she has created them and used them and our ribbons are just brilliant for them.
