Oh TOO cute! Colored Ribbon Slides!

I'm having TOO MUCH FUN !!! 

Last night I turned THIS:                     into THIS:

Blog_slides Blog_colored_slides

These are the new Ribbon Slides that come in the Styled Silver Hodgepodge kit in the Occasions mini catalog:


Sooooo.. how do you do it??  That's the fun part.. cuz it's SO STINKIN' EASY!! :) 

Mix some Crystal Effects with about 2 drops of reinker.. ANY COLOR!! and then "paint" it into the depressed area of the Ribbon Slide... I used a little plastic "stir stick" (like from a "drink".. don't know where I could have obtained that! LOL - probably a souvenir from the last SU! cruise!), or you can use a toothpick.. something small and disposable is great.


Warning.. when are these NOT so cute??  Answer: when one flips off your table UPSIDEDOWN on your new capri pants... WET RED CRYSTAL EFFECTS.. YIKES!!  Solution:  Grab your Staz On CLEANER and dab the bright red stain on your pants, then wash them immediately.. voila.. no more stain! :)  YEAH Staz On Cleaner!

So then check this out.. they look soooooooooooo cute on a project!! (Ruby Red Reinker was used on the project below)


That's a sneak peek of the Journal project we are doing at Charlene's workshop on Sunday afternoon... if you are attending Charlene's workshop, and you see this, leave me a COMMENT below, and I'll have a special gift to put on your workshop order on Sunday!  (Must have $50 min. order to qualify).

I'm off to have a great stampin' day... hope you are too!

Super idea Patty. At first I thought you might have used stickles but the re-inker is a fab idea. Thanks for sharing!

I colored my slides by using a marker and then put the crystal effects over the top of the marker to fill in the space. That works too. Monika


Fabulous idea. SO cute! Love the sparkle and shine...glad I got some before they ran out!!!

You are always full of wonderful surprises. That is so stinkin' cute. Thanks for sharing and also thanks for the cleaning tip. You making me think I need to quit my part time job so I have time to stamp. HA! HA!

Blessings, Diane


Patty, you're unbelievable! These are gorgeous! Never would have thought to do this! I will have to give it a shot when I'm feeling brave! Wow! I'm amazed!


That's a great idea, TFS. I was considering buying that kit and now I'm convinced I really need it ;)

Linda McClain

I just learned about your blog from a fellow demonatrator - I'm your new biggest fan. Love the idea of customizing the ribbon charms.


What a great idea!!! Talk about getting your money worth out of these. Did you have to heat set at all or did you just let them airdry?

Thanks for sharing!


Wonderful idea, Patty! What color reinker did you use with the CE? It's so great to have blogs like yours to read that are SU only!! :-)


Sara in WI

Verrrrrry cool!


I always learn so much from you, Patty. Not only do you have great stamping tips and techniques, but now you are helping keep our clothes stain free! Thanks for the wonderful idea. (I'm glad I got a couple packages of the bulk slides before they sold out!!)

Cheryl Miller

can you tell us how many of each piece are in the silver hodgepodge hardware? Love the way you colored it.


Great idea Patty! they look great on your project too!
Glad to hear your capris came clean.

Sue Duffy

Another fantastic, fun idea, Patty! TFS Approximately how long did they take to dry? I see you did yours ahead of your workshop as opposed to having the attendees do them at the workshop. TIA

Nancy Riley

You are so clever, Patty! You think of everything!

Corinne (aka Roxy)
