Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Blog Hop (& candy...)!

Hi there! Welcome to April's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Design Team Blog Hop! Our challenge this month is to create a design using one of the new, pretty JustRite flower sets--along with a monogram!

The JustRite products that I am focusing on today are: "Beautiful Blossoms," and the "Special Occasions Monogram Stamper Kit." Both of these sets are available at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

I began with a base of Graphic 45's "Le Romantique Collection" paper, distressing all edges for a worn look. This very pretty designer paper pad is available as a kit (Stamp Simply Graphic 45 Le Romantique Collection), or individually at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

The narrow May Art Ivory Crocheted ribbon also comes as part of the "Le Romantique Collection" kit. I threaded some narrow 1/4" Ivory May Art's silk ribbon through the center of the lace before securing it to my design.


Using the daisy bouquet from JustRite's Beautiful Blossoms set, I stamped and Copic colored my background panel. Additional distressing and speckling give it a somewhat aged look.

The "K" monogram from the Special Occasions Monogram Stamper kit was stamped with Versafine Sepia ink, then die cut with a Spellbinder's Petite Circle die, both items from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

After a bit of subtle edging from a Copic marker, I mounted the monogram on a bow of wide May Art's Ivory Silk ribbon, tied with a Bow Easy.

I hope that you enjoyed my design today! Be sure to check out the rest of the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Design Team, as well as Sharon's blog (you can read about the BLOG CANDY there too!) the home of the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love the daisy background you used on your card. I've got that same stamp set, and I wouldn't have thought about using it for a background. I also like how you left
the flower petals white.
