Perfectly Stamped Ribbon!

Another rainy spring day in the Northeast…talk about a broken record..all the more reason to stay inside and craft I guess! I wasn’t intending on making a video but I got to playing around with my Hug Snug Seambinding and rubber stamps and I had the best luck ever stamping on ribbon:

I used Hug snug seam binding in the color “Natural” from I like the natural color because it has a lovely off-white vintage color to it but you can use whatever color you like. I set it on a foam mat (you can use a mouse pad or a sheet of fun-foam) and stamped the sentiment (Purple Onion Designs) repeatedly along the ribbon using Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink but any pigment ink should work. Let the ribbon dry a few minutes before using but don’t heat set it or it may curl up on you. Here is a video on making the ribbon and also coloring the focal image using the new Vivid Promarker blending kit:

That was so fun! BTW the Hug Snug Seambinding is also great for making Vintage crinkle ribbon, check out my tutorial here.  The colors I used on the scallops stamps (also from Purple Onion Designs) are More Mustard, Cameo Coral and Mellow Moss classic dye ink from Stampin Up and if you told be a week ago that those colors would be pretty together I would have suggested that you have your head examined but heck, I guess I was wrong (will wonders ever cease?)

This card qualifies for the following challenges: Crazy Challenge, Make it Monday, Simon Says Stamp and Show…, Emerald Faeries, Card Makin’ Mamas and Crafty Catz

Thanks for stopping by, I guess I will start on the big kitchen repaint project today,We have decided to paint the kitchen a deep cornflower blue (it is currently apple green) and I have to repaint the ceiling white (never done that before) so wish me luck! Til next time happy crafting!

  5. Hi…this is beautiful, I love the darker background and how the lighter colors pull everything together. I really love the stamped seam binding, the layers and textures are awesome. I love texture and layers!!

    Have a great day!


  6. Hi
    I love to stamp onto ribbon and have always used Staz-on or Archival but I will try your idea.
    You always have such clever and helpful ideas, keep them coming 🙂

  7. UPDATE! I bought what I thought would be Hug Snug seam binding from .. I got a spool of white and natural (because I want to be just like you 😉
    When the order came, one roll was Hug Snug, the other was some no-name seam binding from China. I hope it works as well! When I called the company, they told me that is what they are selling now.


    1. I noticed that my last roll of natural seam binding was a different brand when I ordered hugsnug, I thought they just changed their packaging. I will try it and see how it works and let you know!


Tell me what YOU think!
