Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style - My Mind's Eye


Hi everyone!!  Welcome to this week's Ribbon Inspiration Stamp Simply Style. This week we are all using my favie favorite My Mind's Eye products!  I chose to use papers from the On The Bright Side TWO 6x6 pad.  I love the colors in this pad, it's full of rich turquoise and oranges!
 I trimmed some of the papers in a banner shape (they almost look like Washi Tape cut this way, right?) and did a zig-zag stitch down the middle.  I accented the strips with a couple flowers from the Prima Laraine Blue Lagoon pack (seriously LOVE this line of flowers) and some Aqua rhinestones. The sentiment is from JustRite's Large Fancy Sentiments.  This is a quick and easy card and with the many variety of sentiments in that stamp set, you can whip up a set of note cards for a little gift with no problem.

Each week we will have fabulous Blog Candy and this week it's a $20 gift certificate to the store!  The winner will be drawn from comments on one of today’s participating blogs, one comment per blog, please.  The winner will be selected at 6 p.m. EST on Tuesday, July 3rd and posted on Sharon's Blog on Wednesday.
You must check back to claim your prize if you are the lucky winner!
 Here is a list of today's participants:

Special Notice
The Stamp Simply Designers are changing their schedule during the summer months.  Rather than having the designers post on Saturdays, the posts will be spread throughout the week, just to allow a bit more freedom to accommodate summer schedules.  Sharon will continue to have a Saturday morning post each week, but it will vary - she may run a special sale, have a mini tutorial, or a give-away.  Flexibility is the name of the game for the next 2 months! 

Thank you so much for your encouragement and support of The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and to Sharon who works so hard behind the scenes to keep her store stocked and up to date with the latest fabulous products!

 Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!  I'll leave you with a close up picture.
