A Ribbon Share!!!!! REVISED! (some details added...)


I have managed to get a fab deal on some organza ribbon and am offering 3 shares.... I will be cutting this off on Wednesday, April 4th and placing the order. I am hoping you will have it in your hands by April 20. Both groups are filling up fast. I will allow a few more people for each.... I have a few extra grab bags of primas and will combine shipping... email me. ALSO: stay tuned, I will be doing a gingham ribbon swap very soon :)

One is for 3/8 inch organza ribbon. there are 16 colours, you will receive 10 yards each for a total of 160 yards. Price will be $28 plus shipping . This is less than 18 cents a yard. The colours are:
Chocolate, Aqua (like a Cool Carribean), Copper, Shocking Pink, Silver, Old Gold, Ivory, Red, Apple Green, Navy, Torrid Orange, Old Willow (similiar to Always Artichoke), White, Colonial Rose (will match Rose Red and Bravo Burgundy), Purple Haze, Light Gold (more of a Summer Sun).

This option is being removed as there was not enough interest!


The Third swap is for dotted sheer organza ribbon in 3/8 inch. You will get 5 yards of each of 15 colours for a total of 75 yards. Price will be $23 plus shipping. Colours are Orange/white, purple haze/white, apple green/white, black/white, ivory/white, lavendar/white, baby blue/white, pink/white, white/black, royal blue/white, red/white, white/white, shocking pink/black, baby maize/white, old willow/white.

Email me if you wish to join more than one and want to combine shipping

Versamark: the Versatile Ink

Versamark is an essential tool for every cardmaker and scrapbooker. It is on my top 10 list of must haves.... here are just some of the uses:

*Just stamp and emboss with coloured embossing powder or clear powder for a see through shine
*It is great for watermarked backgrounds, it will show as a deeper shade of the colour you stamp on, making a subtle background on any colour. For every colour of paper you own, you know have a complimentary ink :)
*Poppin' Pastels: stamp images on paper with your versamark and now dauber pastels over the image and it will cling to the versamark. It provides a soft shadowy image.
*Pulling Pastels: on darker card stock, rub pastels across page, now stamp versamark over the images and it will pull the pastels off where you versamarked!
*Use to make a shadow for your words. Stamp your original image in ink (the kaleidocolour pads look super!) now restamp the word using versamark and because you will be slightly off, you now have a watermarked shadow. Take it one step further and emboss it with clear or hologram embossing powder.
*Brayered resist: stamp the image on cardstock using your versamark. Leave to dry for a few minutes... now brayer your ink over the image. (again, kaleidocolour works very well!) The ink will resist the versamarked image..... This works well on matte cardstock and even better on glossy
*Versamark and 2 step stamping- stamp the first image in veramark and the second image in encore metallic ink. this looks great on burgundy and navy cardstock!
*use to create subtle lines for your journaling
