Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style-My Minds Eye!


Welcome to Stamp Simply Inspiration Saturday! This week we are featuring products from My Mind's Eye.  For my 5" x 5" card, I used designer papers from My Mind's Eye Sunshine 6" x 6" paper pad.  The music paper with the bird label is just how I pulled it out of the pad! So easy! I stamped my sentiment with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink. You can find the stamp in Wordsworth clear set, Everyday Greetings.  See that wooden butterfly button? That can be found in My Mind's Eye Sunshine Memory Button pack!  LOVE the coordinating products! I added silk ribbon, a Prima trellis rose, 1/8" velvet ribbon, and adhesive pearls, all found in this Teal Deluxe Embellishment KIT!  I also added a bit of brown seam binding!  I applied 1/8" Scor Tape down the middle and pressed it onto the paper to create makeshift pleats!  Easy and quick!   
Special Notice
The Stamp Simply Designers are changing up their schedule for the summer months.  Rather than having several designers all post on Saturdays, posts will be spread throughout the week to allow a bit more freedom for everyone in light of busy summer schedules.  For those of you who have become accustomed to checking in every Saturday morning, no worries!  Sharon WILL have a Saturday morning post each week. Post offerings will be different each Saturday, perhaps a special sale, or a mini tutorial, or maybe even a give-away.  But flexibility is the name of the game for the next 2 months.  And there's no need to worry that you'll miss any of the designers creations as they will all be linked right from Sharon's BLOG. Be sure to subscribe if you haven't yet, it's a good way to get all updates immediately and stay informed!

We all love creating and showing you what we've done, with the hopes of inspiring you in some small way.  We hope you stay tuned throughout the summer and let us know what you think! 

Thank you so much for your encouragement and support of The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and all the designers who work so hard behind the scenes to showcase product that is available.Have a wonderful summer!

The winner will be selected at 6pm EST on Tuesday, July 3 and will be posted on Sharon's BLOG on Wednesday or thereafter. You must check back to claim your prize if you are the lucky winner!
