Stampin Up In Colors 2009/2010

My favorite quick rubber stamp technique is Spotlight or Spotlighting. I used a few of the new "In Colors" from the 2009/2010 Stampin' Up catalog (soon to be released) for this sample.

The second technique used on this card is dyed ribbon. I *love* Stampin' Up's white Grosgrain Ribbon. With this ribbon and a little reinker/water combo you can have any color ribbon you want. Gotta love that! You can make your ribbon lighter, darker or anywhere in between. For this batch of ribbon I used 5 drops of melon mambo reinker to 20 drops of water. Nice! It's a nice way for me to know my ribbon matches without worry.
