About two weeks ago, I got an email from one of my most favorite people, Sharon Johnson! As many of you know, Sharon has a fabulous online store, the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, where you can get tons of beautiful paper crafting supplies (not JUST ribbon!) Sharon said she was planning on doing a Prima blog hop today with her design team and asked if I'd like to join them! NO WAY could I turn down that offer! The Stamp Simply design team members all ROCK, and I'm thrilled to be joining them today to share some beautiful Prima goodness with you!
The Prima Blog Hop starts at Sharon's blog, so you'll definitely want to head over to her blog and start at the beginning! Leave a comment on all the designers blogs because somewhere along the way a winner will be chosen to win the FABULOUS Prima prize package shown below! (Don't drool on your monitors!) If you came here to my blog from dazzling Deb Saaranen's blog, then you're on the right track! From here, after leaving me some love :) you'll want to hop on over to beautiful Barb Schram's blog!
For my card, I am using the "Melody" line from Prima which on my card includes the papers and the "Sugar Blooms" flower. Also used are some of the gorgeous May Arts ribbons that Sharon stocks... 1/2" wrinkle ribbon in pink and brown (threaded through the 7/8" crocheted lace). I used my Bow Easy tool for the double-looped pink bow. The sentiment stamp I used is the Ecclesiastes 3:11 Plain Jane stamp from Verve (available in the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store). I stamped it on some pink paper from the Melody paper pad, and cut out a frame with burgundy paper from the pad using the Labels 14 Nestabilities. I also mixed a little Perfect Pearls with water and used it to spritz the frame for some extra shimmer.... if my photography were better, you'd be able to see it! :(
So, just a reminder if you didn't come here from Deb Saaranen's blog, you'll want to go to Sharon's blog and start at the beginning! And if you're hopping along, your next stop is Barb Schram's blog!
THANKS SO MUCH to Sharon for asking me to join in today, and a big thank you to the Stamp Simply girls for making me feel so welcome!
