Stamping & Embossing on Ribbon

Hello, Rhea here and today I want to share with you how fun it is to stamp and emboss on ribbon.  In this design the entire background is wrinkle ribbon.  It gave the finished project a look of silk art.   

Stamping & Embossing on Ribbon

Cover on side of a piece of cardstock or chipboard with Scor-Tape.  Wrap a small piece around the edges. 

Stamping & Embossing on Ribbon

I used 1.5” Wrinkle Ribbon.  When placing the ribbon, make sure it is snug with no wrinkles.  Ha ha ha…..Funny being that I used the wrinkle ribbon huh?  The more snug the ribbon is placed the better the stamping and embossing surface.   You will still have the texture from this wonderful ribbon.

Stamping & Embossing on Ribbon

I did a little airbrushing to give it a vintage look.  This also brought out the seams of the ribbon, which I liked.  You can use inks and sponges to make this effect as well.

Stamping & Embossing on Ribbon

  • I stamped the post card stamp with light tan first.
  • Then the Eifel Tower with dark brown
  • Heat set these inks to insure they are completely dry.  Note – Because there is adhesive tape it will melt and bubble.  Heat setting should be done at a distance and with patience.  If you see warping or a bubble stop you are over heating.
  • Next step is to stamp and emboss the swirl with gold embossing powder.  Be carful and patient when heat setting the powder.
  • Final step to this was sprinkling a little aged gold and shabby white embossing powders and heat setting from the bottom.
  • Now it is time to be framed.  Swirl a little ribbon tacking it down with Scor-Tape. 

Imagine stamping and making a beautiful wedding card using white ribbon as your background instead of paper.  Embossing congratulations in silver and making a beautiful bow with white sheer ribbon.    Or….Black ribbon and stamping/embossing with white for the popular chalkboard look!!!!  Ooooo…..I just gave you a hint into what I have in mind for upcoming projects.

I would love to know what ideas you have!  See you soon. :-)

Hugs -Rhea
