Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style-Wrinkled and Crushed

It's Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style, and today we're featuring both Wrinkled and Crushed ribbons from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Today was a very busy and exciting day for me, so I went with some of my tried and true elements for this design:


...Monochromatic, Copic coloring, and typical "Deb" layout.

Today's decorator papers are Webster's Pages "Spring Market/Yacht Club/Country Estate."


I colored up LaBlanche's "Two Rabbits" silicone stamp, then framed it out with Spellbinder's "Postage Stamp" and "Classic Square" dies.

A May Art's Crushed Silk bow...tied with a Bow Easy... then accented with a wooden Bo Bunny "Welcome Home" button, adds the finishing touch.

Supplies for today's design are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Like I said, it was an exciting day! We had a special visitor arrive in  Dushanbe, and I must say that it was an honor to meet the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It was a quick trip for Secretary Clinton, and I'm certain she is already on her way to another destination.
