Ribbon Inspiration, Stamp Simply Style-Cool Blue!

Blue Hanger Label
Hello! Welcome to Saturday's Stamp Simply Ribbon Inspiration! Today's focus is BLUE! So, how about Baby Blue! Remember the TWINS card I made HERE? Today's project is part of the baby gift that will accompany the card. When our friends sort all those baby clothes, all those sizes, pink and blue, how about labeled hangers to keep the sizes and gender organized in the closet? Let's get started.  


Individual Labeled Hanger
The first step was to purchase hangers. The set of ten were purchased from Michaels. I love the thin style so not much room will be taken up in the closet. Next was cutting the Spellbinders Labels Twenty One die #5. The die cuts were then stamped with JustRite's new background stamp, Harlequin Script. I inked the stamp and placed my die cut upon the inked rubber. Then, I placed a scrap piece of paper over the entire stamp, and lightly rubbed. After removing the scrap paper, I lifted the die cut, and folded in half! Ink used is Tim Holtz Blue Jeans Distress Ink.   


Hanger Back View
A peek at the back of the finished hanger. The top edges of the die cut is held together with Aleene's Tacky Glue. The gorgeous bow is made with 2" Striped ribbon and is tied with Silver string, then tied onto the silver wired hanger. Nothing is glued directly on the hanger, so when the twins grow into the next size, the bow and label can be removed.  Easy! 


Blue Labeled Hanger Set
The numbers and words are computer generated. The yellow patterned paper used is October Afternoon's 8"x8" paper pad, Seaside. When I linked the paper, I saw it's on sale for 6.00, marked down from $9.99.  ScorTape is what I used to adhere the stars onto my Labels Twenty One die cut.  The Background stamp really added just enough color and texture to the label!


The Blues of Summer Ribbon Package
Yes indeed, there is Mystery Blog Candy! This Stamp Simply Sampler of crisp blue and white ribbon contains a total of 25 yards of quality May Arts ribbon,1 yard of each of the ribbons shown in the photo. The winner will be drawn from comments on one of today’s participating blogs. so leaving a comment on each blog will increase your chance to win! The winner will be selected at 6pm EST on Tuesday, February 14 and will be posted on SHARON'S BLOG on Wednesday, February 15 or thereafter. Good Luck!
