Stamp Simply with Prima Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Prima Blog Hop!

We're so very excited to show you everything Prima~~from blossoms to papers~~! Plus...blog candy...who can resist?

It's mystery blog candy, meaning the winner will be chosen from a comment left on one of our blogs, so commenting on all blogs gives you the best chance to win. The winner will be selected Friday night at 6 p.m. and announced on Sharon's blog on Saturday.

Now, onto my design...I began by choosing Prima's "Botanical" 6 X 6" paper pad...filled with 24 patterned paper designs, 2 pieces per design. Such soft and muted prints!



The pad comes complete with two pages of tags, one you can see that I've used in my design. I've also covered two pieces of chipboard with the paper, layering the "J" for Joy over the tag.


Prima's "Botanical" is matched up with some gorgeous Prima Blossoms: "Sugar Blooms Botanical" (the blue and gold blossom used here, comes edged in gold), as well as the other gorgeous items (butterflies too!) found here.

TIP: I edged the smaller Prima "Fairytale Roses French White" with a Copic Sketch marker for a touch of blue. Keep a package of these blossoms on hand...they're a fantastic way to match your design perfectly!

A Bow Easy fashioned May Art's Silk Ribbon bow, along with chunky, sugared glitter, finalizes my design.

Also, JustRite and Spellbinders are on sale over at Stamp Simply...make certain you check that out as well!

Make sure that you hop on over to the rest of the ladies blogs:

Deb Saaranen (you're here!)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to leave comments on all of the blogs for your best chance at the blog candy!

I was facinated by the "joy" on your card and how you incorprated the large J. I loved the idea of tipping the plain flowers with copic colors to match the project. Brilliant! The colors you used are some of my favaorite. Thanks for the opportunity to win the amazing blog candy.

Hi Deb~

This is so beautiful...and that paper seems like it was made for you! Beautiful! I love what you did, with the tag and the chipboard "J." The ribbon and those flowers are amazing! One of the things that I love about you, is that you do not keep all of your knowledge to yourself. You are happy to share it...like the tip on using the copic on the white blossom. Would it work with water based markers? This is beautiful!

Oh, I showed your KingFisher Bird... I think that is the name...to Dave...he is a bird man for years, more than he would like to admit to here. And, he said it was colored wonderfully, and the stamp is very life-like. I thought I would pass the compliment on!

Email went out yesterday!

He IS Able!
