Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style--Metallic

It's time once again for Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style Saturday! This week, we're focusing on metallics: ribbon from the Metallic or Wired sections of The Stamp Simply store, reflective or shiny accented decorator papers, or embellishments.


There is "Mystery Blog Candy" once again,  pictured to the left. One fortunate person will walk away with these metallic goodies...if you would like a chance to win, you must leave a comment on each of the participating designer's blogs. One comment per person, please! 





My choice of metallic for today is

KaiserCraft paper usually has some wonderful textural elements included in their decorator pads. There are often foiled, metallic accents, as well as flocked sheets, as part of the pad. This is certainly a case of "Lullaby Collection."  This pad is 6.5 X 6.5" and includes both a pink and blue colorway.

Since I wanted to make my card long and narrow, I had to paper piece the background sheet. You can typically hide the seam in patterned papers doing so. An accent away from the seam (in this case my bow to the very right), or covering the actual seam, will help if it appears to be outstanding.


Aren't these tiny, foiled sentiment panels sweet?
There are two pages for each boy and girl
sentiments included in the pad,
as well as precut labels, tags and
borders to mix and match the printed papers.


A border of scalloped white cardstock, May Art's Wrinkled Ribbon, and a Webster's Pages "Sparklers" gem, add the final touches to this simple, yet pretty in pink, design.

Designers for today:

Barb Schram
Deb Saaranen (you're here!)




Reminder for the blog candy: the winner will be selected at 6 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, September 20 and will be posted on Sharon’s blog on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning, so please check back there to claim your prize if you are the lucky winner! Best wishes!




Thanks so much for stopping by!
