ScrapbookSteals & We R Memory Keepers Sew Ribbon

Hey everyone!  A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by Kristy at ScrapbookSteals to create some projects using the We R Memory Keepers Sew Ribbon tools and ribbon.  Of course I said yes!  Who can resist a chance to play with new tools?!  ;)  So... today I have some cards to share with you that I created using them.  This are really fun and easy tools to use, and they are perfect for cards (which I LOVE to make.)  

First off are a couple of cards I made using the Sew Ribbon Weave.

I created a stem for the flower using the Sew Ribbon Green Ribbon.  I added a few brads in the spaces between the ribbon, looped a piece of ribbon, and tucked it behind the laced ribbon for a leaf.  

Using the same Sew Ribbon Weave, I made a quick and easy card with a rainbow of ribbon-stitched lines. 

This card ‘pops’ with all of the rows of colorful ribbon.

For the next card, I used the Sew Ribbon Shoelace. 

I made a frame around my card with the Orange Ribbon.  To create the frame, I place the Sew Ribbon along the top and bottom of the card and punched.  For the sides, I flipped the paper over to punch.  It kept the ribbon slanting in the same direction.

For the next two cards I used the Sew Ribbon Leaf.  This one was my favorite!

For this card, I created a patterned background with the Aqua Ribbon.  I punched two rows together on the top and bottom of the card, and I added some large brads to the center of each pair.  I really love how this one turned out!

Here is my last card:

Instead of starting and stopping the threading at the edges, I started threading the ribbon at the inside from the front, reached it around the back, and finished threading it on the other side.  This allowed me to finish by tying the ends together in a bow. 

It seems like the options are endless with these fun tools, and I can’t wait to try it out on more projects.  Make sure to check out the ScrapbookSteals blog for lots of beautiful inspiration and check out the store too for some great deals on scrapbooking supplies.
 Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!
