It's a Wonderful Time of the Year Stamp Simply HOP!

Welcome to The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store October BLOG HOP! It certainly is a wonderful time of year as we prepare for the holidays and winter season! Sharon has done it again, and put together a spectacular Yuletide kit, pictured above! Ribbons and embellies coordinate with the paper, all you need comes to you ready and set to create. Sharon has several kits available, along with ribbon packages too! A note to remember, all items in ANY kit can be purchased individually as well.
For my creation today, I went down Gingerbread lane! I picked up a couple of gift giving items to have on hand during the holiday season! Both these items are soap related, making each a cute hostess gift!
For stamping I used JustRite's Favorite Occasions Set, stamped my image with Memento Black ink and colored with Copic markers. The Christmas designer papers here are from Graphic45 Christmas Past Collection. This soap is from the dollar store, and I love the simplicity of the Jute string! Sharon carries a variety of string colors in her store!
How about a card to use separately or give with one or both gingerbread soaps? The plaid paper comes to us from Basic Grey's Jovial paper pad. The remainder designer paper is from Graphic45 Christmas Past Collection. I love how the row of gingerbread men turned out, with one being highlighted! Paper edges are distressed with a Making Memories Distress tool.
This is liquid hand wash, as the label put it! I purchased this item at Cracker Barrel. Here I included the stamped border to create a tag tied with some of my new holiday ribbons! Oh my, that sheer red with an ever so slight sparkle edging is fabulous! All ribbons and string are found at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. Designer paper, JustRite Favorite Occasion Set, and Memento Ink is also found at the store!
There is hidden BLOG CANDY along the way! Just leave a comment on each designer's blog and you will have the chance to win a $50.00 RIBBON gift certificate from THE STAMP SIMPLY RIBBON STORE!!! Good Luck!
Have a wonderful time as you visit these terrifically talented designers' blogs! You will be
inspired! Thanks so much for stopping by! Take good care!
