Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style-Words of Comfort...

Remember, Amazing Grace will bring us through...
Good Morning friends! It has been awhile, hasn't it? Too long for me, and I'm thankful to have had a bit of studio time today and join in The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's Saturday Inspiration! As I was creating this card, a call from my friend's husband to tell me she was back in the hospital rang through. Battling breast cancer has taken the final toll and she will not be returning home. So, I went to hospital to say my earthly good byes.  She is such a strong and courageous woman who I have learned so from much through the years. I will miss her deeply, and know it's only God's Amazing Grace that will bring us through. 

Amazing Grace
The wonderful products used for this card can be found at The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store. The 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" paper pad is Kaisercraft, These Days. The soft subtle colors are beautiful. The key die cut and Remember floral ticket are found in These Days Kaisercraft Collections. This is a packet of 59 die cuts that coordinate with These Days papers! (what a value, and talk about easy!) The checked paper is cut with Spellbinders Labels Twenty One. It was a bit wide after I distressed the papers base edges, so I cut it down the middle and removed 1/4" and attached the two pieces! When I just linked the dies to the store, I saw they were on sale! The flower is found in Prima Reflections Trinket flowers set! 5/8"tan solid plaid ribbon is HERE. The Verve Stamp used is called Amazing Grace and can be found HERE! Oh my, I love the clear stamps, and there is a wonderful selection of single ones in the Stamp Simply Store! I stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, which is HERE

Chevron Stripe Baby Frame, JustRite!

Chevron Baby Frame
JustRite continues its Background Stamp reveal today, featuring the Chevron Stripe Background Stamp. For my Shadow Box Frame Creation, I stamped onto white card stock using Memento London Fog Ink. I then trimmed the edges, and cut a center rectangle to create a mat for my picture.

Gathered May Arts Striped Twill Ribbon is the perfect touch for this creation! Prima Reflection Collection Flowers and Webster's Pages Spring Market Trim Lace finishes off the embellishments on this shadow box frame project. A shadow box type frame allows the bulk and height of flowers & ribbons! Gotta love that! I purchased mine at Michaels! Lace, Ribbon, Flowers, Ink, and adhesive gems are found at The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store!
I hope you've been well. Crazy life lately and not much creating in my studio! More info on that later, we had an especially warm day today and it swiftly reminds me of the promise of spring, a season of hope! Praying you feel the warmth of hope today! Take Care!
