Here is my sneak peek of 2RedBananas.com's exclusive stamp sets - January Journaling Spot and January Journaling Spot 2. These sets will be available on the website on February 2nd.
Because I live in Texas, where we don't usually get much snow, I used the January Journaling Spot stamp sets to make a card. I used a base of cream CS and adhered a block of Anna Griffin patterned paper. I randomly stamped snowflakes (from first set) onto a strip of cream CS with blue Clearsnap Chalk ink and added a little sparkle with a Stardust pen. I adhered this strip toward bottom of card. I stamped the mitten journaling spot (from set 2) onto cream CS with blue chalk ink and stamped sentiment (also set 2) with pink chalk ink. I adhered a piece of ribbon along bottom of mitten and put the whole thing on card with pop dots. I also added 3 pearls from Michael's along the bottom right side.
BLOG HOP QUESTION:
The blog hop will be starting at the 2RedBananas blog, so be sure to go there first (http://2redbananas.blogspot.com). The blog hop question wants to know my favorite type of ribbon. I love grosgrain ribbon. It's thicker than some other ribbon and has nice heft, so it tends to make good bows because they retain their shape well, and it doesn't flop over as easily when doing tags, etc.
If you're participating in the blog hop, don't forget to leave a comment. And be sure to check back all week for additional sneak peeks.
