Welcome, Friends!

Today is the day!  The November Stamp Simply Ribbon Store hop!  If you’ve arrived here from Linda Duke’s blog, then you are in the right spot!  One lucky hopper is going to win this fabulous prize:

Isn’t that yummy?!   I’ll tell you in a minute how you can get a chance at it!


For my project, I did a box set that is soooooo easy!  The cards are pretty CAS for me….

I used the luscious Graphic 45 Christmas Past designer papers on each card.

Instead of putting the image on the card and the sentiment on the tag (as most do), I swapped it.   I used the gorgeous Church image from the new JustRite Simple Blessings set.

Each church is treated with white puff paint (snow).

Each card has a different sentiment from the set embossed in red on the vanilla overlay.

Here are my deets:

Stamps:  JustRite Stampers Cling set Simple Blessings, JustRite Stampers’ Christmas Nested Sentiments

Colors: Cherry Cobbler, Handsome Hunter, Very Vanilla, Graphic 45 Christmas Past designer Paper, acetate

Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, Versamark, copics,

Accessories: 1/2″ Wrinkled ribbon (moss), ivory 1/2 pearls, red 1/2 pearls,  Oval nestabilities, fleur de lis border punch, snowflake punch, gold embossing powder, red embossing powder, white puff paint, icicles stickles, bow easy, hole punch,  sticky tape, gold cording, dimensionals, scalloped oval punch (large)

    These papers are really pretty. You did a great job on the box and cards both.

  66. on 02 Nov 2010 at 22:55Linda L

    Holly what a beautiful boxed set! Love the simple yet stunning design of each card using the idea of a tag for the focal image.

  67. on 02 Nov 2010 at 23:06Cheryl

    Like the box, like the cards, like it all!

  68. on 03 Nov 2010 at 01:33Gail Schoolcraft

    Holly, What a great project! Really liked the switch of the image from the main card to the tag! At first, I thought they were different churches, but I see where it was just positioned a slight bit differently each time and some of the flower soft was applied a bit differently. It made each of them appear unique and not the same! Thanks for sharing your project!

    Hi Holly. I’m another new kid on the block. I just found you in the blog hop. These cards and the box – WOW!!! I adore them. If I had the money I would be begging you to sell these to me. I’ve been looking at your other works – ALL GORGEOUS BTW!!! Love the ornament in it’s own box. You’re one talented lady.

    Thanks for sharing your creations. It’s so much fun looking and dreaming of trying to do something like that one day.

    Hugs and blessings…Tracy 🙂
