Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Blog Hop: It's a Wonderful Time of the Year! Blog Candy Too!


Our Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Blog Hop features Christmas and Winter designs! Our team has prepared some inspirational projects and cards for you to peruse...

My first project:


What a fun new KaiserCraft "Stocking Garland," available from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. It comes unadorned, allowing YOU to design it in any manner that you would like!

And what better way to add adornment than the papers and embellishments from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store K and Company Glad Tidings Kit?--found here. Sharon has carefully chosen ribbons and bling to coordinate with the gorgeous K and Company designer paper.

This project features the 12" X 12" designer pad, along with the ribbons, twine and Kaiser Rhinestones from the kit. I also used Spellbinder's Poinsettia and Create A Flake One dies.

Here's closeup shots of each stocking...simple and fun!









My second project for today also uses papers and bling from the new SSRS Glad Tidings Kit...


This card uses the K and Company Die-Cut Cardmaking Pad and Grand Adhesions Dimensional Stickers from the Glad Tidings Kit. What a simple and quick card...add a bit of the May Arts Burgundy Wrinkled Ribbon, tied with a Bow Easy...plus a sticker...you're done!

Once again we have Mystery Blog Candy...you need to visit each blog and leave a comment. The winner will be able to select $50 of ribbon of their choosing from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. This gift must be redeemed by October 31, 2010.

Be sure to visit all of the blogs in the hop:

Deb Saaranen--you're here!

Be sure to leave a comment on everyone's blog for a chance at the blog candy! Thanks so much for stopping by!
