Celebration card with custom colour ribbon

This week I had a batch of cards I needed to send out to my team who are totally awesome. So I designed this pretty card using the Amazing you Sale-A-bration free stamp set. I adore this set and have used it lots. 

I wanted a fresh bright colour and a colour I haven't used much is Tempting Turquoise. Such a beautiful shade of blue. I love how Stampin' Up! products match so I can be confident my projects look great without too much thinking.

I didn't however have a ribbon in the same shade, so I made my own. There are a lot of ladies showing how the Stampin' Blends colour ribbon just now but I used my Many marvellous markers. We have a wider colour range in these and they colour ribbon just perfect. The only difference being it takes longer to dry and can print on your hands but whats inky fingers ? except a sign of a happy crafter, the colour doesn't spread onto the card once dry.

So I was able to take the silver metal edge ribbon and make bows in the exact same shade as my card and my ink ... gotta love the many marvellous markers they are worth three weight in gold.

I hope you enjoy this project and will give it a try. I do have a Youtube tutorial for you to craft along to. Products used are listed below. You can shop with me any time by clicking my shop now button to the right side of the page. So grab a brew, get comfy and enjoy the video.
