Then in the past few weeks I started seeing ribbon weaving all over the net! "NO WAY" I said, "I've sworn off weaving" I refused to do it.
Friday night I went up to the stamp store. It was innocent enough, I went to get one of my copics refilled. But the crop room was packed with my stamping friends, so how could I not pull up a chair? Next thing I know Roniece is pointing out some ribbon weaving card samples she's printed off the internet. Before you can say, "No Erin, you've made a commitment to forswear weaving" I had a pile of strips of ribbon in my hands!
I will admit there was drama. I started by taping my ribbons to the edge of the measured cardstock, *I'm using a technique I saw on Kristen Werner's blog HERE* I wanted a checker board type patern. So I tape the green, then black, then green on one side, and black, green, black on the other. NOPE. I got stripes. So I change it up. MORE stripes. I give it dirty looks and think "I told you so!" to myself. But then, with the help of Penny, who is a quilter *quilters know everything* I figure out that I need to do all black on one side, all green on the other!
And here are the cards. I actually made 3 so far. I left one with Roniece at the crop, I made these two yesterday at home.
The "thank you" stamp is by justjohanna, the patern paper is making memories, the ribbon and flowers are stolen out of Ronice's stash, because remember I went to the store with my one copic.Oh and this is scary. I've been really busy all weekend. I've made time to stamp, but not time to clean up! I usually clean my stamp area after each session. I'll get to this later today, I refuse to do another project before I clean it!
ETA I KNEW I was spelling Roniece's name wrong! Sheesh! Spelling is corrected. Sorry!
