Stamp SimplyRibbon Inspiration – Spring Blog Hop

Published by at 8:00 am under Dry Embossing,Spellbinders,Spring,Verve

Hi friends, I’m tickled to be back with Sharon and the Stamp Simply Design Team for Spring Inspiration the Stamply Simply Style! Be sure and check out the blog candy below (yummy green Spring ribbons). You’ll want to read through this post and then visit the participating blogs for a chance to win.

This week, Sharon is thinking Spring! Spring is in the air, the weather is sunny. Is wasn’t difficult for me to get in the spirit of Spring with gorgeous papers and dies. The K&Company Spring Blossom designer paper was a perfect choice for my card. Stamp Simply Ribbon Store links are provided at the bottom of this post for shopping purposes.

A close up of the focal image: a pretty pink camellia and bud, and leaves made with Spellbinders’ Layered Poinsettia dies, as well as a bit of baby’s breath. Wrinkle ribbon and crochet lace were perfect choices for this Spring card.

The verse used is a Verve plain jane clear stamp.  A few butterflies are fluttering about.

Mystery Blog Candy is being offered, meaning the winner will be drawn from comments on one of today’s participating blogs, so leaving a comment on each blog will greatly increase your chances of winning, but only one comment per blog, please. The winner will be selected at 6 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, March 13 and will be posted on Sharon’s blog on Wednesday or thereafter.

Good luck!
