Stamp Simply Dressed in White Blog Hop

Hi there! Welcome to this Saturday's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Design Team Mini Hop! This week, we're featuring designs in hues of white or ivory...and dressing them up with May Art ribbons, lace, and trim...all in shades of "light" as well!

Sharon has put together some gorgeous kits of white May Arts: "Everyday Whites" and "Fancy Whites." She also ribbons and trims in Ivory colors.  AND...there is a Stamp Simply Ribbon Store sale running now with 15% off of any white or ivory BY THE SPOOL!

Let me walk you through my very simple design! As you can see, I went with shades and tones of white and ivory.

I began with Basic Grey's Cappella designer paper (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store). I thought that the subtle tones would complement a pure white theme.  I decorated the Cappella base with strips of a solid color from the pad, then layered May Art White Wide Crocheted Lace (Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) over the strips. This really highlighted the white lace.

A blossom was created with Spellbinders Dahlia Nestabilities dies, also available from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. I wrinkled the layers of the flower, then added a crystal button and "leaves" of May Arts White Wrinkled 1/2" Ribbon.

A wash of a shimmer spray adds a touch of gleam.
