Stamp Simply Ribbon Store GRAND OPENING!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store GRAND OPENING blog hop!  It's been slow in coming, but we are finally ready to celebrate!  We have a total of 5 designers sharing projects with you today, a fun progressive Blog Candy offering (read below for details) and LOTS of great items are on sale in the store in the SPECIALS Section -- Spellbinders, JustRite and tons of papers!!

AND be sure to check out the gorgeous new products by Prima, Webster's Pages, Melissa Frances, Bo Bunny, Cosmo Cricket, Kaisercraft, LaBlanche, and Pink Paislee to name a few -- not to mention the large selection of May Arts ribbons.
 
My cards today focus on the new Cosmo Cricket products!  Oh yeah, I sure LOVES me some Cosmo Cricket and every release captures my heart! 

First up, I used the Upcycle papers, Glubers, twill ribbon, KaiserCraft pearls and the sentiment is from JustRite, All Occasion Nested Sentiments.
My next card uses the Cosmo Salt Air paper, Prima Fairytale flowers, Wrinkled ribbon and JustRite Stampers You Inspire Me set.
And last, but not least, my last card uses more Cosmo Salt Air paper, Glubers, a Prima Fairytale flower, this time I ruffled some satin edged grosgrain ribbon to make my flower embellishment with a tiny bit of crocheted lace looped under, more Kaiser Pearls, and the sentiment is from JustRite Stampers set, Heart to Heart.
So, Glubers are basically a super huge flat glue dot.  The package has 3 sizes: 4", 2.5" and 2".  Here are a couple pictures when I made my first Glubers flower (I used the 2" size).  Start rolling the ribbon from the center of the Gluber.  When you finish "rolling and sticking" your ribbon down, tuck the end under the gluber to glue it down (see the second pic).  However, that part will not be sticky to the paper, so add a dab of glue to it before you stick the Gluber to the paper.
 P.S. see my fancy Photoshop work with the arrow? lol!

Now on to the BLOG CANDY:
The BLOG CANDY offered for the Grand Opening Blog Hop will be an assortment of ribbon from The Stamp  Simply Ribbon Store -- and HOW MUCH ribbon you might receive is totally up to YOU!  Here's how it'll work:

The winner will be selected by random.org from the Registered Customers of The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, so if you have not created an account yet, now is the time to do so!  You can create your account here.

The winner selected will receive a BASE amount of $25 to apply towards ribbon of their choice.  But the potential for much more is available:

1)  If the winner has made a purchase from The  Stamp Simply Ribbon Online Store since it's opening and at any time prior to the drawing, then another $10 will be added.

2)  If the winner has subscribed to the Newlsetter when they opened their account, another $10 will be added.

3)  Another $10 will be added for EACH BLOG in this hop that the winner has commented on.  There are a total of 5 of us hopping, so if you comment on all blogs, that's another $50 added to your ribbon package.

If the winner has met all the above qualifications, the total ribbon package will be worth $95 -- all ribbon -- your choice!!!

The winner will be drawn at 6 p.m. EST on Wednesday, April 4 and will be announced on Sharon's Blog sometime Thursday morning.
