Blog Hop with Graciellie Design + Really Reasonable Ribbon Collab

This is the first of two projects that I'm sharing today.  First up, is the new release for Graciellie Design and collaboration with Really Reasonable Ribbon.  With 4 new digital stamps sets and a new digital holiday paper pack, the team is pulling out all the stops!  I'm your last stop on the hop so be sure and leave a comment to be entered to win a $20 gift card to Gracie's shop,  plus,  there's a sale.   Details on Gracie's blog. 





I'm featuring the "Jingle Bells" digi stamp set.  I am totally smitten with that sentiment which reminds me of one of my favorite movies..... Polar Express!  Five amazing sentiments included with this fun Jingle Bell image.




I'm also using a couple different digital paper images from the Holiday Traditions digital paper pack, for my card; the holiday stripes and mini bells with poinsettias.  Aren't these papers just gorgeous?   


   


The design team are working with their choice of ribbon from the October and November Club Assortment from RRR.  I chose the October set, with traditional holiday colors.  It includes 9 styles and 17 yards of ribbon and lace.


Get more information on the monthly Ribbon Club, here.  It's like Christmas in your mailbox every month!



I fashioned a pretty bow using the solid red and green with gold trim.  Scroll further down to see how I used the lace; as an accent border with my striped paper.  So pretty!  I adore lace, in every color and size.  One can never have too much lace.  There's a ton of inspiration at the RRR blog.  Check it out!




A few quick card details:  My papers and sentiment was printed on Neenah white cardstock and sized to layer an an A2 kraft card.  My paper bell was printed on Strathmore Mixed Media vellum paper and colored with Tombow dual brush markers.  My sentiment was die cut with a scalloped die and the edges blended with Ranger Ink Brushed Corduroy distress ink.  To place my mini gold jingle bells, I used a hole punch several times to make a space large enough to push the bells half-way through, sealing the edges on the back side using my Westcott glue pen.  It required that I use double stacks of foam squares to have my paper bell raise up and be level with the backside of the bells.  Otherwise, the paper bell would look uneven.  This allows for a uniform appearance, besides it was easy to do!  You'll find the mini bells in the Christmas Craft section of Hobby Lobby.





If you missed any stops on the blog hop, be sure and head back to the beginning, at Gracie's blog.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Check out the entire new release:
