ICS Blog Hop Knotty Ways

Hooray!  It's the 1st Wednesday of the month and you know what that means right? Inspire, Create, and Share Blog Hop! Our theme this month is Knotty Ways showcasing beautiful ribbons with a Christmas theme. Our Annual catalog has so many inspiring stamp sets and accessories for Christmas and fall.  There is also an early release special going on this month to get all of us in the mood to start now on our Christmas projects! Enjoy the hop and you can read all about the special at the bottom of this post.

This is my first card and it literally has knotted designs in the ribbon.  The double stitched ribbon has lots of visual interest and texture.  The list of products is just below for how make this design.

The "Oh, What Fun" stamp set is quite fun.  I layered the ribbons to wrap the "Be Merry" Designer Series Paper as a gift and tagged it from Santa himself.

I love embossing folders and this Holly version has stunning, sharp details that add so much textural interest. 

Layering the Stitched Shapes framelits with the Layering Circles framelits creates all sorts of new options for coordination and dimension.

We have a fabulous new Christmas bundle early release during August, the Carols of Christmas!

Here is a fun video to show the bundle - you must be on the blog to see the video:

Great use of the DSP from the Annual Catalog that sometimes gets overlooked by the Holiday Catalog! Your ribbons look great!
