Bibs, Ribbon, and Buttons...oh my!

It's all about making the bibs pretty with ribbon!  I love how easy using the stretch gathered plaid ribbon is!  No need to create your own gathering, it's done for you!  The stretch is magnificent!  And oh my, wait until you see all the colors it comes in!  HERE is the sampler Sharon has put together that includes all 7 colors.

I added buttons from my stash to the two flowers!  The pink bib also received two suede leaves peeking out from the flower side!  The bibs are from Target.  HERE is where you will find all the delicious colors of this fantastic trim!  Suede Leaves are HERE. Remember these leaves come in multiple colors and are an exceptional value!

Update on on the silk ribbon flower tutorial I plan to share!  I have yet to get the photos all taken and sorry for the delay!  I will let you know when it is done!  Hopefully this week!  Thanks for your patience!  

Remember to check out Sharon's BLOG for store product updates inspiration!  HERE is The Stamp Simply Store link!  Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Kaisercraft Bundle of Joy Gift! Stamp Simply Style!

A girly Bundle of Joy card and gift are on the agenda today!  I love to coordinate all those Stamp Simply Ribbon Store ribbons & trims to make one of a kind baby gifts!  I've been working on many of these types of items for my granddaughters too!

Talk about the cutest paper pad!  The designer papers used on my card are found in Kaisercraft's Bundle of Joy 6.5" x 6.5" paper pad.  The tag and scallop border are die cuts from this paper pad too.  When I used Kaisercraft's HERE, I shared the following info!  It's definitely worth sharing again. 
  • Bundle of Joy paper pad contains twenty-four single-sided 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch designer papers (two each of twelve designs)
  • Eight 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch spot varnish papers (two each of four designs)
  • Four 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch foil papers (two each of two designs)
  • Four 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch die-cut pages
The three stamped sentiments are found in Samantha Walkers JustRite Set, For All You Do Vintage Labels Three. VersaFine Black ink was used for the sentiment stamping and Memento Angel Pink for the decorative stamp.

Here is the sweet little gift I put together!  A simple headband and little white socks embellished with The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store ribbons and trim and look how cute!  All the ribbon flowers and trim were hand sewn.  You could easily use a machine, but I so enjoy hand stitching!  All the ribbons are listed below in the supply list.

Using Clear Boxes to gift creations is one of my favorites ways for presentation of the goods!  It allows all the goodness to be seen!  (Sorry about the hazy glare of the box) I cut a page from the designer paper pad to line the box bottom and another die cut tag from one of the die cut pages works perfectly. I will have a couple more cards using this Bundle of Joy paper coming in a few weeks! 

Thank you for visiting today!  I love it when you do!  Be sure to check out Sharon's BLOG daily for product and Stamp Simply Ribbon Store updates along with inspiration ideas!

It's that Cardinal on a Pine Branch!

Remember this wonderful Stampavie Cardinal on a Pine Branch?  I colored several when I created this card HERE.  I wanted to achieve different look, and decided to incorporate Kaisercraft Holly Bright Designer Paper for this card.  I'm posting information regarding Kaisercraft Designer Paper Pads below!  Until I started using Kaisercraft paper pads, I did not realize specialty papers and die cut pages were included. A great value, check out more HERE.

  • Holy Bright Kaisercraft paper pad contains twenty-four single-sided 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch designer papers (two each of twelve designs)
  • Eight 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch spot varnish papers (two each of four designs)
  • Four 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch foil papers (two each of two designs)
  • Four 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch die-cut pages

That darling cardinal tag is one of the die cuts included with this paper pad.  I used a simple silk ribbon gathering for the ribbon embellishment and tied the ribbon wrap with mini cording.  I like to knot the ends of the mini cording to prevent fraying.  The card base is cut using a Spellbinders Labels Eight die to allow the Holly Bright paper to show. I raised the Spellbinders Circle die cut Stampavie Cardinal on a Pine Branch Copic colored image using Therm-O-Web foam dimensionals. Burlap String and a few Kaisercraft adhesive rhinestones finishes the card design!  The list of Copic marker colors are HERE.  Also, I added a white dot for the cardinal's eye with the ZIG White Paint Marker.  Have a wonderful Wednesday! 

***Thank you for all the questions & comments regarding this type of ribbon treatment!   
I used it on a card last week HERE.  I will be writing a tutorial with pictures to share next week!  
Hopefully that will help answer any questions!  
It's so very easy and works best with silk ribbon.  
Not only does The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store 
have great silk colors and sizes, 
Sharon also has put together silk ribbon samplers
And that is a great way to go to build your silk ribbon supply!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

Welcome to Monday!  I know it's now August, but I'm still in a "Christmas in July" mode, so I have a Christmas card to share with you today!  It uses that fantastic My Minds Eye WinterWonderland Stamp Set that I used last week on the Christmas Tag Sets I posted HERE.  This set is on sale at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and the more I use it, the more I LOVE it!  Lets get started!

The snowman is darling, no?  I picked up on the star designer paper in the Webster's Pages Royal Christmas Pack. The papers in this pack are beautiful!  That led to the star die cuts and coordinating several more of the papers into the card design.  LOVE the stamped sentiment too!  I tell ya, this set is wonderful!  The Webster's Pages Royal Christmas Paper is on sale too!  All the products used on this card are listed below!  I hope you like this frosty card as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Sweet Emma!

Welcome to the final day of JustRite's August Release!  JustRite is featuring two new sets, one is a background stamp, Lace Oval Frame, and Lace Vintage Labels Three!  I have a special creation today that I cannot wait to share and give this little girl's Momma!  

I want to share with you who took this sweet picture, allow me to introduce my dear friend, Jessica Kloock!  She's such a talented lady, not only is she a gifted photographer, she also creates hair accessories and children's clothing.  Check out her JMK Photography FB Page, HERE and her Peanut Butter & Jelly Children's Clothing FB Page, HERE!

This is a 6" x 8" white painted wood frame.  There is a slight groove in the wood that I glued pink mini cording found HERE from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!  I chose to create my own card stock brown mat using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B.

Isn't this Lace Oval Frame background stamp grand? It is a beauty designed by Amy Tedder Designs, a cling rubber stamp measuring 4 1/2" x 5 3/4" made of deeply etched red rubber. I stamped with White Craft ink and clear heat embossed onto pink cardstock. Then using my trusty sponge dauber with Tim Holtz Distress Worn Lipstick Ink, I rubbed the color all over the stamped image, with the paper picking up the color.
I chose to trim out the center of the background stamped paper and taped the photo behind the opening.    The entire stamped mat was then taped behind the die cut brown mat before being place in the frame.  I removed the glass because I knew the Lace Vintage Labels Three stamped flower would be placed upon the framed photo.

Lace Vintage Labels Three images for the flower worked wonderfully, but as you can see this fantastic set has endless possibilities for creating!  I used Memento Angle Pink & Tim Holtz Distress Worn Lipstick to stamp the images before cutting out using Spellbinders Blossoms Three dies. I worked the die cut blossom edges, bending the paper giving the flower more dimension.  Thank you for stopping by today, we have a fun day planned as Emma gets to be photographed today again by our dear friend, Jessica!  Yes, we are blessed!

Check out all the wonderful creations the following JR Designers have waiting for you!  These designers are so talented! Enjoy and have a fantastic Friday!

Countdown to Christmas! Stamp Simply Style!

Welcome to Thursday!  I hope this day finds you well and ready for more Christmas goodness!  If you are looking for great value in preparation of gift tags, I have the products for you!  Lets get started!
Talk about simple and economical!  Right now at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, Melissa Frances tag sets are the perfect choice to get those tags ready and waiting for holiday wrapped gifts, gift bags, good gifts, etc.  For today's tags I used Melissa Frances Countdown to Christmas! I added my own stamping of "to & from" along with the trees, package and sentiment. The stamps are found in another sale item, My Minds Eye Winter Wonderland Stamp Set. What a cute set for simple stamping!  I added simple ribbon, string and adhesive rhinestones!  
Here is a second set of tags where I mounted onto die cut cardstock and designer paper.  I added even a bit more trim and ribbon.  And how do you like those snowflake sequins?  Sharon has all kinds of sequins at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store! I am loving this polka dot ribbon too!  I think these tags could really be adhered to a card base to create a special card if needed.
Be sure to check Sharon's BLOG for all The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store product news & updates, and lots of inspiration goodness too!
