"May Arts Silk Ribbon has been a long time favorite product here at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I don’t think that’s been any secret! We know many of you love using silk ribbon as well, and to make it a bit easier in color selection and to take the guess-work out of it, Michelle has prepared a color chart for us to use, comparing May Arts Silk Ribbon colors to both Stampin’ Up cardstock colors and A Muse Studios cardstock colors. I think you’ll enjoy these color charts and find them very useful. Thank you so much, Michelle, for your time and effort in this project!
The design team does have some projects to show you today, as well as some fabulous SILK RIBBON BLOG CANDY, so be sure to read completely to the end of the posts to see the projects and learn about the blog candy offerings.
Additionally, the May Arts Silk Ribbon is now available in Sampler Packs."

Let’s begin with the color charts:
Here's my design using the May Art's Champagne Ribbon from the Pink Sampler Pack:
I began my design using Prima's "Songbird" decorator paper. Love the sweet birds on a branch...just perfect for stamping JustRite's "Amazing Paper Grace Clear Just the Right Words" sentiment directly onto the decorator paper panel using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink.
A bit of "Melissa Frances Lace Trim in Cream", studded with some Kaisercraft Champagne Pearls, adds a lacy border.
Last, but not least, the beautiful silk bow, tied with a Bow Easy, and decorated with a Webster's Pages"Vintage Sparklers Button".
In celebration of our Silk Ribbon Color Charts and to share our love of Silk Ribbon, BLOG CANDY will be available from EACH blog participating today. Each designer selected one Silk Ribbon Sampler (my pink one shown above) to give away and all you have to do is comment on the blogs. Each designer will pick their winner using a random number generator on Wednesday evening at 9 p.m EST. All the winners will be announced on Sharon's Blog sometime later this week, so be sure to check back to see if you have won. If you are listed as winner, you will need to contact us with your mailing address, so please be sure to check back for the winners announcement later this week.
