Stamp Simply Christmas Hop and Sale

Welcome to our Stamp Simply Christmas Blog Hop and Sale.  The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store needs more space for incoming product.  Some of the Christmas items currently in stock are being offered at reduced prices to clear those shelves.  Today the Design Team is here to inspire you in the creation of your Christmas projects, and with the papers and some of the other items in use being offered at SALE prices, what better time to stock up than now!!! 

Sale prices are in effect while current inventory lasts — when it’s gone, it’s gone — so sorry.


Yes, we do have Blog Candy today — and we’ll get to that at the end of the post.

Let’s start with my project.  I made a trio of cards today using Kaisercraft’s Tis the Season 6×6 pad.  Now bear in mind that I used this pad a lot last year and it was my mission today to use up some of the cut pieces that had been left.  Boy, it feels good to do that! 

All cards today are A2 sized. The scallop border and oval panel were punch outs from the ‘Tis the Season pad.  All the Kaisercraft  pads  have several sheets of punch outs, and putting them to use can make for some quick and easy projects.  The sentiments on all cards today are from JustRite’s Christmas Mini Sentiments, used with the Mini Sentiment Stamper.  The die used on this card is from the Nested Sentiments Dies by Spellbinders for JustRite.

All the interchangeable Mini Sentiment products by JustRite can be seen here.

Many of the original sentiment sets by JustRite are on SALE and can be seen here.

I used the oval punch out as a backdrop for my Prima Fairytale Roses – French White.  Champagne Pearls were used as accents. The festive ribbon used is 3/8″ Solid Metallic Edge  (brown/gold)– I LOVE this ribbon for the holidays — it has that great glimmer and looks so rich and elegant.  I just curled my tails with my fingers and applied a dab of glue under the bottom of the tail to hold it in place.  This ribbon makes beautiful bows and holds its shape well.  All bows are made on the Bow Easy.

The sentiment tag here is another punch out from the same paper pad.  The sentiment is still from the same set as well, Christmas Mini Sentiments.  I used VersaFine Onyx Black Ink.  The rhinestones are Lippy Red.

Just a closer look at the punch out tag with sentiment and embellishments.

Another punch out was used as a backdrop for the flowers.  Again, the sentiment is from the same set and it was die cut using Spellbinders Fancy Tags One.  This is a triple bow made on the Bow Easy, meaning I wrapped the ribbon around the legs 3 times to get my triple loops.

Here’s a little tip:  When using those punch outs as I do with so much weight put on them, I like to stiffen them up a bit first.  I just cut a scrap of cardstock a tad bit smaller than the punch out to back it with.  It gives it a lot more body and holds up very well when placed on the 3D Foam Squares and then topped with flowers and ribbon.

All Kaisercraft pads have many sheets of punch outs.   All Kaisercraft pads in stock can be seen here.

Scor-tape was used throughout the project.

And here’s my trio of cards in their A2 Clear Boxes, ready to be given out!

You can see all items at reduced prices in the Specials Section.

You can see all items categorized as Christmas here.

All items are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, as linked above.


And here’s a look at the Blog Candy being offered — 3 packs of Prima flowers and over 25 yards of May Arts ribbon.
