It's a Bloomin' Tuesday! Stamp Simply Style!

Good Morning to you!  Today we are featuring creations that spotlight Bloomer and Rosette trims that are shabby and fun!  I love the ease of using this trim, and am thrilled with the finished shabby look they exhibit!  Sharon over at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store has a great selection of this fantastic trim HERE.  Let's get stated with my first creation using some Webster's Pages bloomers!

How about a baby bib and headband?  The bib is from Target, and the headband was purchased in a set from Meijers.  For those of you not familiar with Meijer Stores, it's a Midwest store chain, similar to Walmart, Target, etc.  I added seam binding to coordinate with the headband embellishing.  Tulle and velvet ribbon is also added to the headband.  Now, I know what you are thinking!  This is so cute and all, but anything a baby wears we have to launder, right?  Well, this bib has been laundered! I am thrilled to share, these Webster's Pages Bloomers wash wonderfully!  This went through a warm water regular machine wash and was thrown in the dryer.  

I used a good ole' needle and thread to attach the trim and seam binding to the bib, here is a close up of the stitching.  All embellishing on the headband is also sewn and attached using a needle and thread!

Remember these blooming trees?  What a great way to use your trims!  The styrofoam cones measure six and twelve inches and were purchased at Michaels.  A totally different use of this trim, but a creates a wow decor piece!  On the larger tree on the bottom row and the fourth row from the bottom is Prima's Shabby Rose! They are a bit larger!  All I did here was use pearl head straight pins to attach the trims to the cone.  Adding a seam binding embellished JustRite tag with a holiday sentiment packs the final punch, no? 

If you want easy and terrific all in one trim...then using this type of shabby trim is where it is at!  So simply wonderful to use!  The Stamp Simply Store has a wonderful selection of these trims HERE.  Along with all the JustRite Stamps that you need HERE!  Don't forget the pearl head straight pins too, Sharon has this value pack HERE.

I have other bloomin' news to share!  The Stamp Simply Store has a new face amongst its design team!  Darsie Bruno is now a Stamp Simply Store Special Projects Designer! Darsie is such a talented designer and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to work with her on two teams now!  She is joining us today with her Bloomin' Creations...wait till you see! Gorgeous is the first word that comes to mind!
