Camping Trip

Happy Friday!!

Today I want to share with you a layout I made where I actually combined my design team projects for WOW! Embossing Powders and The Scrapbook Outlet. For WOW! I was given the task of embossing on ribbon. Now I had never tried this before and actually had not seen it either. I have seen people stamp on ribbon, but never emboss. But I like a challenge so I was excited to give it a try. And for The Scrapbook Outlet I was given the awesome Bo Bunny Camp-A-Lot Collection to create a two-page layout with. I was supper excited to have received the Camp-A-Lot Collection because my husband had taken our nephew camping last year and those pictures would work perfectly.
And I must say I have an amazing husband because he made sure they took plenty of pictures (with his iPhone actually) for me to scrap later!!

Here are some close-ups of the embossed ribbon.

I picked a plain cream colored twill that was about 1.5" wide and using the loop boarder stamp from the WOW! Gratitude Stamp Set, I stamped the image in three rows. I then covered them with Earthtone Pepper Embossing Powder from the Suzy West Pantry Collection. The tricky part was getting all the excess powder off the ribbon. The powder actually melted really quickly on the ribbon. I decided to brighten it up a bit though by adding the multi-colored ribbon down the middle, which I attached down by stitching a zig-zag pattern on with my sewing machine. I absolutely love how it turned out!!

If you have never tried embossing on ribbon you should really give it a try. I know I can't wait to do it again.
