Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style-Velvet Hop

Hello, and welcome to our Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style hop this week...featuring VELVET.



I started my design for today using Prima's decorator paper "Melody." Melody is filled with rich tones, sized 6 X 6," and has 48 pieces in it's stack (2 pages per print or solid). Sharon has a range of Prima "Melody" products in the store, seen here.

The stamped image is JustRite's "Greetings from Paris." It's stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink and Copic colored, then cut out with a Spellbinder's Nestabilities "Labels Four" die.  I just love that JustRite is designing some of their new stamps around Spellbinder's dies...it really makes for a crisp and clean image panel!

Did you notice the little aqua colored Melissa Frances "Trinket and Baubles" gem mounted on the panel?


Here's a closeup of the image panel and a Prima "Trinket Collection" blossom, layered over a May Art's Ivory Silk ribbon bow, with accents of May Art's 1/8" velvet.

All of the products used today (minus the Copic Sketch Markers) are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.




And...something YUMMY, pictured above:
