Ribbon Inspiration...

Today I'm showcasing a fun product from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. I was excited to play with three kinds of netting in a variety of scrumptious colors and weave sizes. For my first project, I used the large sized netting/webbing and had fun creating this Halloween card. I used Spellbinders™ Nestabilities Nested Tombstones and the tree branch from Mix'd Media Elements.

To create the background for my card, I laid 3 pieces of the large netting/webbing onto lavender cardstock, then sprayed the surface with Smooch Spritz Frosted Grape and Navy Twinkle. I removed the webbing then sponged Memento Tuxedo Black in the upper left and right corners, then across the bottom for my ground.

For my second project, I created a darling flower pencil and notepad set using the medium sized netting in blue, lavender and white. I cut strips of the netting in graduated sizes, folded it in half and cut petals, then glued them to a small punched circle. I added a cute button secured with Grape Burlap String, then wrapped green netting around the pencil.

My patterned paper for the notepad is Prima's Meadow Lark and my sentiment is from JustRite Papercraft's Antique Autumn Tags One, and I finished with White Silk Ribbon and Kaisercraft Ice Blue Rhinestones.

 For my last project I created a Wedding Bouquet using the fine netting as filler amongst roses made from Spellbinders™ Shapeabilities® Spiral Blossom One.

I cut lengths of ivory, pink and green netting and secured them with floral pins into the bouquet holder. I added Satin String Leaves, ivory tulle and ivory silk ribbon.

I added pretty Venise Lace (coming soon to The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) around the circumference of the bouquet and finished it off with pretty ivory satin ribbons and sprigs of pearls.
