Um Wow, Avery Elle & May Arts Ribbon

Welcome to day #1 of the 
We hope to load you up with a week's work of fun ideas!
There are three sets of prizes along the way too:
  • 1 Stamp Set
  • 1 roll of ribbon
  • 1 mask, flair set & layered chipboard set
Just be sure to leave a comment as you visit the May Arts Blog and others.

I incorporated bits of ribbon from May Arts, some stamped and cut-out hearts
(and sentiment) from Avery Elle and a few chipboard banners and circles from Um Wow
in creating this really quick card!

7/8" ribbon works perfectly to fill in the openings of the chipboard banner windows.
Add a bead of fabric glue around the edge and then press the ribbon in place.  

For the hearts, I first stamped them onto a textured white cardstock with 
black Staz-On ink.  I used different shades of watercoloring pencils by Faber Castell
and then blended the colors with a water brush.  

I wanted a very hap-hazard and unintentional look, especially with the heart placement.
I added a small foam square to the back of each and then arranged them around the
top of the banner.  The small circle shapes gave the hearts some texture and tied
back in with the banners.

In finishing, I used the same black Staz On ink for the sentiment at the bottom.
Some bright papers by Doodlebug Design to match the ribbon banners and my card is complete!

Here is a Ribbonista line-up of this week's hop:

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
