Welcome to another Ribbon Inspiration Saturday/Stamp Simply Style. Today the design team was challenged to create using the color blue — I think blue is a color we all love and gravitate towards often. I went through a streak a few years back where I think everything I made was blue with black accents — LOL! I STILL love blue!
Here’s my clean and simple, quick and easy card for today.
It was my Mom and Dad’s 60th Wedding Anniversay earlier this week and this is the card I made for them. I’ll take it to dinner on Sunday to present to them in an A6 Clear Box. The card is made 6.5″ x 4.75″ so it fits perfectly into the A6 Clear Box — a perfect way to both protect and present the card.
Paper: Bonjour by Kaisercraft
Bow made on the Original Bow Easy
Flower: Angelica Rose in Bonnie by Prima
The inside sentiment is one of several sentiments included in Rose Border by Wordsworth (a very pretty set).
Ink used is VersaFine Onyx Black, my favorite for crisp, clear sentiments.
And here’s the card in it’s A6 Clear Box, all set to go to dinner on Sunday!
And, YES, that beautiful sheet of paper beneath the card is one of the sheets in the Bonjour pad. That sheet of French text along with the floral sheet in my card are both so elegant with the silver foiling. Gorgeous pieces!
All items used are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, as linked.
Today’s blog candy is The Blues of Summer Ribbon Sampler. This Stamp Simply Sampler of crisp blue and white ribbon contains a total of 25 yards of quality ribbon by May Arts — 1 yard of each of the ribbons shown in the photo. Ribbon types include:

Several new pads by Kaisercraft have arrived — you can never go wrong with these beautiful pads. Each pad contains a total of 40 sheets, some of which are specialty papers with some glitz, glam and shine and there are always a few sheets of die cut punchouts in the back. I LOVE these pads for quick and easy creations.
The most recently added pads are:
Bonjour (that I used today) – beautifully vintage with forals, butterflies and French influence
Sweet Nothings (that Deb used today – BACK in stock as the original supply sold out quickly) and there are die cut Collectables to match this pad – a beautifully angelic pad with vintage florals and prints
These Days – vintage family history
Lil’ Primrose – little girl tea party
ALL Kaisercraft pads can be seen here — there are some at reduced pricing
The new Sunday Picnic by Webster’s Pages has been restocked — just beautiful!
