Stay Put Bow Video AND Blog Candy!

As promised, here is the video for the Stay Put Bow...


I used it for the cards pictured below for today's color combo challenge. I couldn't decide between using the large flower to make a full-sized card and the smaller one for a 3x3, so I did both! One of the colors was Basic Gray, and if you've noticed lately, I'm posting quite a bit with this color... LOVE IT!!! I hope you like my color challenge cards...


Color Combo Challenge # 142 - Basic Gray, Bashful Blue, & Certainly Celery
Stamp Sets: Doodle This, Priceless, Short & Sweet
Ink: Basic Gray, Bashful Blue Craft
Paper: Certainly Celery, Basic Gray, Bashful Blue Textured, Certainly Celery Prints DSP
Accessories (both): Light Blue Gingham ribbon, Crop-a-Dile (for stay put bow), Zig Painty pen, Pop Dots
Accessories (full card): Ice Circle Rhinestone brad
Accessories (3x3): Microbeads - these are smashed into the pop dot in the center of the flower... look closely!

I have a bit of news to share... on December 10th, I will be hosting a challenge on SCS!!! I will be hosting the Try a New Technique challenge, so make sure you check it out!!! Two of the projects for the challenge are on the video... can you guess the technique??? There WILL be Blog Candy for you if you guess correctly!! When I decide what to give, I will post a picture. The quicker the correct guess, the bigger the prize. A small hint for you - this is a two-part challenge. More hints to come in the coming weeks... stay tuned and get your thinking caps on!

Denise... said...

Hmmmm...fantastic tutorial! As far as a guess on the technique though, I'm lost! How about a slit close card?

Cathy said...

Sweet video and real easy to follow. I love this technique!! Great cards for the samples too.
Ok my guesses are:
Stay Put Bow
Matchbook or Slit Tab
Thanks for a chance.

Linda SS said...

Thanks for the tutorial! I'll guess that you will be doing a technique on gift card holders?

Pat S. said...

What a great idea for the bows! Thanks for sharing!

My guess for the technique: two-step stamping.

I have a big problem tying a bow to lie flat, it always lists to the side or is cockeyed. I also hate wasting expensive ribbon as I have purchased some that it 3.00 a yard or more.

Elaine said...

I am guessing your challenge will be a stay put bow! and for the second...no clue! LOL

dd2njoy said...

WOW! Great video, I'm not professional in tying ribbons, I must try this technique. Thanks for sharing.
I'm guessing that the challenges are about stay put bow & gift card holders.

Littlekel90 said...

Just LOVE that stay put bow. Terrific tutorial, and my guess for the technique would be a gift card holder or matchbook card.

Sharon said...

WOW! Thanks for the FANTASTIC tutorial. Just used it on my 50 Christmas cards and it literally took about 15 minutes to do all 50 cards! You are the best.
As far as the technique...I think it's going to be either watercoloring or some type of embossing.
Thanks again.

Marion said...

I think that maybe it's a gift card holders using the slit punch.

Or a some card using the Crop-a-Dile...maybe cutting through more than one thing??

A-M said...

Thank you for this great video - I must try it myself. It looks very effective.

Sandy in NH said...

O*M*G* I have GOT to try this. Brilliant! Thanks so much for sharing. I will be posting a link to your tutorial on my blog for sure. =)

This is just what I was looking for, an easy and neat bow to make. I have arthritic hands and find it very difficult to tie bows.
Thanks very much for this excellent video

Geesh! Sometimes I wonder why some of you ladies are not rocket scientists!!! Of course if you were, then we wouldn't be able to find out these "IMPORTANT" things. I get irritated with myself wondering "why didn't I think of that?"

Thanks for this tutorial. Brilliant!!!

This is a great idea but not really a bow. (More like a knot) I need to figure out how to actually tie a bow that looks good on cardstark.

NLempinen2 said...

Thank you so much for this great idea. I've finally tried it and it worked perfectly. No more tattered looking ribbons for me now.

Who knows where to download XRumer 5.0 Palladium?
Help, please. All recommend this program to effectively advertise on the Internet, this is the best program!

jo said...

I am a so new at all of this and just became a new demonstrator not to long ago. I cannot tie a bow for nothing. I clicked on your video on "Stay Put Bow" , and it says NOT available, please try later!
HELP, can you put the video back on?
Thanks,
