No Slide Ribbon Video Tutorial

Stampin up long fellows dog

And they call it Poppy Love . . . This sweet little bowser was dipped In Poppy Parade and stamped on Whisper White card stock.  He looks quite dashing on this long and skinny card (5 3/4" x 3 1/4").  A few embellishments later and you have a Simple Saturday card.

Don't miss the Glimmer Brad in Poppy Parade . . . it's part of the new In Color Glimmer Brad Collection in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog (available Sept. 1).  Click to see all my Holiday Mini Sneak Peeks.

Today's Stampin' Pretty Tip comes to you in the form of a video tutorial.  Discover how to keep your ribbon from sliding on your cards with a simple technique.  I originally learned how to do this several years ago after watching a video tutorial by Michelle Single called the Stay Put Bow.  It's always been my favorite way to anchor my knots and bows.

I mixed and matched colors (and Glimmer Brads) using these cute stamps
from Long Fellows (Hostess Level 2).  Did you know that you earn hostess

  1. Thanks for sharing this technique, Mary! I have to admit thought that I couldn’t make it to the end of your video. For some reason your camera angle made me feel dizzy!

  2. Love the cards and what a great tip. I’ve already used it on my next two cards I’ve made. You’re wonderful!!!!

  3. Very cute cards. Had trouble with the sound at first when it came in it was very low. All sound on my side was blasting as was the sound bar on Your video. Thanks for the tip on the dimensionals…will use that little tip from now on!!!

  4. Darling cards, Mary! And a great video – can’t believe I’ve never seen this ribbon technique before. I’ll have to give it a go! 🙂

  5. Thanks for sharing, Mary! I can demo that technique with the card we are making in a workshop this week! As always, I am inspired by your cards! They’re wonderful!

  6. Aaahhhh Mary, this was the only hostess set that I was ok with not getting. I just wasn’t that crazy about it. Until now. Thanks for being such a little enabler! These cards are just adorable! I LOVE it!

  7. Thank you for this awesome tutorial, Mary. I tried it right away and it worked so well. My knot has never looked so good before and the ribbon stays in place as promised.

    Hugs, Tina from Germany

  8. Love, love the tutorial and the tip. Your cards are beautiful and I check in every day. I must admit though, that the angle of the camera gave me a dizzy feeling! Any way to change that for the next one??

  9. Thanks for sharing this ribbon tying tip – I’ve never done it this way before!
    I love the new glimmer brads too – I kind of overlooked them in the catty so it’s nice to see them used by someone and now I have to order a set (or two!).
    On a personal note I’m happy to tell you that my hair is now a decent style length (check out my blog for recent photo). Thanks for all your support and well wishes!

  10. Your cards are great and your ribbons always so perfect, now I know how you do it. Will be trying this on my next card. Thanks for the tutorial.

  11. One day, I will figure out why I’m signed in as Pals Paper Arts on your blog! It’s me, Gina, again!

  12. LOVE these cards Mary! And I love even more that I received the Peach Parfait and Poppy Parade version of these cards from you! I have it proudly displayed in my studio. Thanks for Sharing!

  13. Awesome video! I haave never done a bow like this before! Have to try it ! Thanks for sharing! Cute cards too!

  14. Beautiful card, Mary! Thanks for the great tutorial. I’d completely forgotten about this technique so thank you for the refresher! 🙂
