Day 2: Stamping Tip - Stamping on Ribbon

Day 2*Stamping on Ribbon

Step 1Choose a light-colored ribbon and ink that coordinates with your paper. Cut the ribbon slightly larger than the length you will need. Select a My Acrylix® stamp that will fit visually on the ribbon.
Step 2Ink the entire stamp with a fair amount of ink. If you are using a stamp with two lines, stamp the top line sentiment first (centering it vertically on the ribbon), allowing the bottom line to stamp onto a piece of scrap paper. Press gently but firmly—too much pressure will cause the image or word to bleed into the fabric of the ribbon.
« Step 3If you are using a two line sentiment, re-ink the entire stamp to assure equal coverage. Stamp the bottom line sentiment on the ribbon next to the first image, this time allowing the top line sentiment to stamp onto a piece of scrap paper.
It's a good idea to test your ribbon and ink combination before stamping your final ribbon.
