Silk Ribbon- Color Charts, Sampler Packs and BLOG Candy!


May Arts Silk Ribbon has been a long time favorite product at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!  We know many of you love using silk ribbon too! Wait till you see what fellow team designer, Michelle created to make it a bit easier in ribbon color selection!  In the quest to make it easy,  Michelle has prepared a color chart for us to use, comparing May Arts Silk Ribbon colors to both Stampin’ Up cardstock colors and A Muse Studios cardstock colors. We know you’ll enjoy these color charts and find them very useful. Thank you so much, Michelle, for your time and effort in this project! You rock!

Let’s begin with the color charts:






The Stamp Simply RIBBON Designers have projects to show you today, as well as some fabulous SILK RIBBON BLOG CANDY!  Be sure to read completely to the end of the posts to see the projects and learn about the blog candy offerings.  I am re posting this card trio with silk ribbon bows!  I love this LaBlanche Stamp, Santa with Holly in Border!  HERE is the previous post, check it out to learn about the various colorings on these cards!  


In celebration of our Silk Ribbon Color Charts, and to share our love of Silk Ribbon, BLOG CANDY will be available from EACH designer's blog participating today.  Each designer selected one Silk Ribbon Sampler, (mine is the above Christmas Sampler), to give away.  All you have to do is comment on the blogs.  Each designer will pick their winner using a random number generator this Wednesday evening at 9pm EST.  All the winners will be announced on Sharon's BLOG sometime later this week, so be sure to check back to see if you have won.  If you are listed as one of the winners, you will need to provide Sharon with your mailing address.  Please be sure to check back for the winners announcement.  GOOD LUCK!


Please check out the projects on all the designer blogs today and enter for YOUR chance to win at each blog:

So many pretty colors and I love your use of the silk. It looks like it would tie very well and not be bulky like some ribbons.
