56 Brand New Stampin’ Up! Ribbons

At my Catalog Kickoff event I had a display of all the brand new Stampin’ Up! Ribbons, Trims and Twine.  I actually bought a roll of every one.  And then I thought I should do a video to show them to everyone that couldn’t come to the kickoff or that doesn’t live local to me.  They are so much better in real life than they are in the photos in the catalog.  And while the video isn’t exactly real life – you can’t touch them – you can see them a little bit better than just looking at the little photo in the catalog.


I took a couple of photos after arranging them in rainbow order – I had all the like styles together while I shared them in the video.


And here is the video.  If you are reading this in an email you may need to click through to my blog or YouTube to see the video.  And while you are there be sure to sign up for my YouTube channel so you know when I post a new one.

I hope you like seeing all the new ribbon.  Which one is your favorite?

  • sections feature the stamps with coordinating accessories
  • the first 2/3 of the catalog feature stamps (with coordinating accessories listed with a featured sample or technique) and the accessories section is in the back divided by category.
  • Kits and bundles are included again.  Bundles have coordinating products at a 15% discount!
  • the catalog has increased by 40 pages
  • throughout the catalog we have listed supplies with item numbers and prices for a few samples to make it easy to buy what you need to make that sample
  • samples are either “you can make it” or “everything you need”
  • some samples are marked as “quick & easy”
  • in the back is the stamp index with section icons
  • plus a brand new Greeting & Alphabet index!
  • and the accessory index is back
  • don’t miss the Ronald McDonald House Charity stamp set inside the back cover

Q&A – Ribbon Bows


Bow Tutorial



Q: What is your favorite ribbon bow technique?A: Well, I’d like to say it’s a natural ability, but that wouldn’t be true! I’ve learned how to make a bunch of great bows through resources from Stampin’ Up! and my fellow demonstrators. Here are 5 of my favorite bows as well as tips for making them.

Crafting Bow Techniques by CraftyPerson

1. Two Colored Double Bow: Layer two 18” ribbons. Layer ribbons then tie a standard bow. Before pulling the bow loops to tighten the bow, take a moment to twist the ribbon ends so they lay straight. Pull bow loops to tighten, then fan the inside bow loops out from behind the top loops.

2. Elegant Bow: Lay a 5” piece of ribbon out flat. Add a dab of SNAIL to center of ribbon. Fold in right end and adhere to center. Add a dab of SNAIL on top of ribbon end. Fold in left end and adhere to center. Add a dab of SNAIL on top of ribbon end. Place one end of 2” ribbon over center of ribbon, creating a “T” shape. Add a dab of SNAIL on top of 2” ribbon end over folded ribbon. Wrap 2” ribbon around folded ribbon until it overlaps and adheres to itself. Pull ribbon snug so it is flat, but not so tight it causes the folded ribbon to gather. Trim off excess ribbon. Press bow flat or push the ends gently to puff it up a bit. Add to card or layer on top of a ribbon strip.

3. Perfect Double Bow: Select a brad and spread prongs out flat. Begin with 18” ribbon. Use a ruler or estimate the lengths. Fold ribbon 3” from end with 3” section on top. Hold finger over folded layers 1” from fold with loop to left. Fold long end towards your finger to create 1” loop on right. Keep finger over center to hold layers in place. Fold long end back to center to make 1-1/2” loop on left. Fold ribbon back to center again creating 1-1/2” loop to right. Pinch ribbon at center and pick up layers. Set layered ribbon on brad with opened prongs. Fold prongs over ribbon and press flat. Trim ends.

4. Hole Bow: Punch a hole in card stock with 1/8” or 1/4” punch. Thread both ends of a 22” long ribbon up through hole from bottom. Slide ribbon loop around card stock and tighten by pulling ends. Keep ribbon ends the same length. Split ribbon ends so one comes out above ribbon and one comes out below. Make sure ribbon isn’t twisted. Tie a basic bow. Fluff and adjust bow as needed and then trim ribbon ends.

5. Fork Bow: Begin with a standard dinner fork with four tines and a 10” piece of ribbon. Place ribbon across front of fork with 1/3” of ribbon to left of the fork. This end will stay stationary. Wrap right end of the ribbon around behind the fork, around left edge, over the top of the first end. Thread end down through space between the center fork tines below where the first ribbon crosses. Pull ribbon up behind the fork and through the space between center fork tines. Knot the two ribbon ends firmly. Slide ribbon from fork and trim ends.
