It's a Double Hop!

Today is a fun hopping day with Really Reasonable Ribbon and Sparkle N Sprinkle teaming up for some great designs featuring beautiful trims and sparkling glitters and embossing powders! If you arrived here from Joan's blog, you are in the right place! If not, you will want to start at the beginning at the RRR blog HERE, so you don't miss a thing!

Everyone received the springtime February Ribbon Kit from RRR to use on their projects. There are a lot of great pastel designs to match up with Sparkle N Sprinkle's beautiful glitters, flocking, stamps and embossing powders.

I made two simple projects today. I am trying for fewer layers and less fuss in my projects this week. My card is made with Spring Swirl stamp set. I embossed the umbrella with White Detail Embossing Powder.  The sentiment is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. My tag is also using a sentiment from Spring Swirl.  I embossed it with Firefly Embossing Powder. I seem to have different ribbon than everyone else on the hop, but you can find what I used here and here. I added some Oyster Baker's Twine to the card.


In addition to the blog candy Really Reasonable Ribbon is offering, Sparkle N Sprinkle is giving a stamp set to one lucky hopper!  Leaving a message on every blog increases your chances of winning, because it's a mystery which of the artists' blogs has been chosen to house the prize! On Tuesday, February 15, a name will be drawn from the comments on the mystery blog. Winner gets to choose a stamp set of their choice from SparkleNSprinkle.com!

Next up is Cheryl, and you will love the amazing design she has to show you! Thanks for stopping by!
