Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style--Mother's Day!

We're creating Mother's Day designs at Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style this week! Hope we can inspire you!


I've used Our Daily Bread Design's "Happy Mother's Day" available from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. You can see all of Stamp Simply ODBD stamps HERE.



I stamped the wreath with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it with Copic Sketch markers. After hand trimming it, I mounted it on top of the green background sentiment panel with 3D Foam Squares.


All linked products are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.


Decorator paper used today: Kaisercraft's "Lilac Avenue," along with accents of May Art's Silk ribbon, fashioned into a bow with a Bow Easy, and Kaisercraft Lilac rhinestones.



As always, this is a Mystery Blog Candy hop, meaning the winner will be drawn from comments on one of today’s participating blogs, so leaving a comment on each blog will greatly increase your chances of winning, but only one comment per blog, please. The winner will be selected at 6 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, March 27th and will be posted on Sharon's blog on Wednesday or thereafter. 


The line up for today's hop:

Sharon Johnson - The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store
Holly McMillen
Linda Duke
Deb Saaranen (you're here!)

Glad you were able to stop by--be sure to leave comments on each of the blogs to up your chances of winning the blog candy! Have a great weekend!

My Mom passed away a couple of years ago, so I celebrate Mother's Day by remembering some of my elderly favorite Aunts with special cards. Some of them are alone now and they always seem to get a kick out of being remembered. Love the blog candy and thanks for the chance to win. Jan D.
