Stamp Simply Striped Ribbon Inspiration

It's a Stripe Ribbon Inspiration Saturday! Look at all that goodness! This is the blog candy picture that one lucky commenter will win! All BLOG CANDY info at end of post!
For my creation today, I have wooden letters for our granddaughter, Emma. This set will be gifted to her for her First Birthday! Can't believe she is a one year old! We are blessed! I used My Minds Eye designer paper, Blush to cover the letters. They were already white when I purchased them from Michaels.
Close up of the letter E. I added various trims to each letter. The pink trim is My Minds Eye Blush trim, so it matches perfectly! Gotta love that! The pretty flower comes with the pearl center!
Close up of a Striped Ribbon embellishment! Adding some glitter to the resin flower blings it up a bit! The striped bakers string tails rest nicely atop the aqua lace! I also used the pink stripe twill with a gluber to create a flower that is adhered onto the letter A.

  • My Minds Eye BLUSH Designer Paper is found HERE!
  • 3/4" Striped Pink Chevron Twill Ribbon is HERE!
  • The stamped sentiment & butterfly are found in the coordinating My Minds Eye Blush Stamp Set that can be found HERE!
