Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style – Prima

Welcome!  It is Saturday so that means it’s time for more Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style.  This week the Stamp Simply Design Team is showcasing product by Prima.  We all love our Prima embellishments and truly, I can hardly create a thing without some Prima flowers.  Today we are all using paper by Prima as well — SUCH pretty pads!  I think you’ll enjoy them.

Here’s my card for today — YES, another wedding card.  We also have two 60th anniversary parties soon, so I’ll switch to anniversary cards soon!

Today I’ve used products from the Nature Garden Collection by Prima.

I have Prima pads available in  6 x 6, A4 (slightly larger than 8 x 11), and 12 x 12.  I used  a 6 x 6 pad today.

All Prima product in stock can be seen here.

Whenever a pad has some blush-toned sheets, it seems I always grab those first — just LOVE this color.  The cardstock used is SU Blush Blossom and Very Vanilla.

Once again, this card is 6.5 x 4.75″.  It fits perfectly into an A6 Clear Box.  Additionally, I really like this size as it gives me just a bit more room to work.  I insert my cards into a clear box as soon as they are completed.  They are totally protected and it is so easy to organize/store them when they are all in their own clear boxes.  Then when it’s time to give the card, the clear box makes the perfect presentation!

I’ll just list and link the product used here:

Flutter Bits by Prima in the Nature Garden Collection

Note: Flutter Bits are petite butterflies, 96 per package, to coordinate with the paper pad

Cuttlebug Vintage Die (right corner accent)

Petal Pins by Prima in Iced (two used here)

Perle Bebe Flower by Prima in the Nature Garden Collection

Note: The Perle Bebe Flowers are flatter than many, for those interested in flatter flowers.

Leaf is from a package of Laraine Roses by Prima

1.5″ Pleated Satin by May Arts in Ivory

1/2″ Seam Binding in Cameo Beige

Burlap String by May Arts in Ivory

Kaisercraft Pearls

Scor Tape is used to hold the ribbon

Aleene’s glue from superstores is used to create the floral cluster

The Cuttlebug corner die cut was run through the Xyron X to make it sticky

The bows are made on the Original Bow Easy

An easy sentiment treatment:

Sentiment is from Summer Words, a clear set by JustRite

Spellbinders diesFancy Tags One and Petite Oval Nesties

3D Foam Squares used for elevation

This is my long time favorite sentiment for wedding cards – 1 Corinthians 13.  I’ve used it for years on wedding card insides.  I used to do it on the computer, but now I’m SO happy to carry this single stamp by ODBD.  You can find it here.  It coordinates with LOVE that I used on my last post.

All stamps by ODBD can be seen here.

All items used are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, as linked.
