If you jumped in in the middle, don't worry! All the blogs are linked, and if you follow the links at the end of each post, you'll come full circle and end up back here. And I'm offering some blog candy! Look for the info at the very bottom of this post.
Today I am showcasing the Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set. It coordinates with the Bingo Card stamp, but inspiration led me down a different path. Bingo would be so......predictable. There are 24 different little stamps in this set, and so many possibilities! First up is a card using the poinsettia stamp.
Up next is another card, this time using the cardinal stamp. Cardinals aren't indigenous to my area, so I just have to make my own.
Next is a 3D project; a sweet little tin. With sweets. Chocolate sweets.
Mmmmm, chocolate............. Where was I ? Oh yeah, the project....
This was so quick and easy to make (and if you follow my blog, you know how I love quick and easy!), and makes a great gift. Just stamp the little images on 1" x 2-5/8" address labels and wrap them around Hershey Nuggets. They fit perfectly!
Stampin' Addicts and see what they're about. It's free, and it's for all people who love Stampin' Up!, be they demonstrator or customer. Their motto is
Your next stop is Jennifer's blog, Stampin' on the Fly. Jennifer is working with the simply elegant Rejoicing in Christmas set. Wait until you see the cracked glass card - WOW!

Winner will be drawn Monday, after I verify the entries.
OK, too bad you don't get my commission cuz you just sold me on this set. All of the projects are beautiful! Love the poinsettas with the sparkly center and ribbon wreath. Gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh! What great ideas with this set I had talked myself out of! lol Wow!ReplyDelete
I liked this set, but told myself I just don't need to make BINGO cards this year. You SOLD me! I am getting this set with my next order. Fabulous projects!ReplyDelete
Love everyone of your creations! Stunning.ReplyDelete
Cindy, all your projects are gorgeous, but my very favorite is the ribbon wreath with the poinsettias. OMGosh it's lovely!ReplyDelete
Wow I just spent the last hour hopping from one blog to the other leaving comments on all of them, however when I checked back later they weren't there so I'm hoping comment moderation reason. GD is not happy with me for being on the computer for so long... Loved all of the creations. I loved your ideas and the colors you chose were fabulous, then your work is always fantiastic. Having said that you said in yesterday's post to be eligible for your candy I had to post another blog that I liked. Tough, tough... but Debra at http://heartfeltlinksinspiration.com Falling Foliage gets my vote. All of them were really great!
Cindy these are amazing! I too am sold on this set cause it is so versatile. Great job showcasing it!!ReplyDelete
Wow, Cindy! Great ideas for this set.. and can you believe that I wasn't sold on it til now? :)ReplyDelete
What wonderful projects, Cindy!! The wreath card is really lovely and the game idea...so smart!ReplyDelete
Wonderful creations Cindy! You made this set look so versatile and lovely!!! Great work!ReplyDelete
You did a great job showing the versatility of this set. Love the first card, so elegant. Appeals to the magpie in me too, I love glitter. Great projects!ReplyDelete

What are the deminsions for the box? Such a great idea!ReplyDelete
OMG your projects and Christmas card is awesome. I hadn't thought about this set, now I may re-think that. I hope you don't mind if I cas your card. I just love the wreath. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
I stumbled onto your blog and I am soooo glad I did - what fabulous projects and a fun post, I loved reading it!!! I just got my bingo set and how funny, made a match game, lol!! Did not make the cute box though so need to work on that, heehee!! *STAMPIN HUGS* AlexReplyDelete
What great projects with this set -- love the cardinals!ReplyDelete
I am thrilled that I came across your blog. I too love the cracked glass card! Thanx for the inspiration.ReplyDelete
Awesome projects! I'm going to have to make a memory game for my kids--thanks for the great idea!ReplyDelete
Your merry matching card game is such a fun project! That would be a wonderful holiday tradition to pull out year after year.ReplyDelete
Great projects! That wreath card is gorgeous, and I love the idea of the memory game! But I think the chocolate is my favorite. So cute!ReplyDelete
What fabulous projects, love the Christmas cardReplyDelete
Wow Cindy...so many hop worthy posts this last week or so and yet you still came up with even more goodness for the actual hop itself. Once again its hard to pick a favorite - though I'm tending toward the match game I'm definitely going to CASE the ribbon wreath card.ReplyDelete
For the Candy....
Congratulations on the blogaversary and thanks for offering such awesome blog candy. I've been wishing I'd gotten that hostess set for sometime now. I've commented on all the other hop posts and picking a favorite...come on they're all fabulous. I did love Holly's Halloween House that was anything but "dark and dreary" and Jen's cracked Glass Rejoicing in Christmas should really be framed (so should her son's creation too!). I think this hop really went over the top and I can only imagine what you will all have to live up to for the next one. Just something about Christmas that seems to bring out the magic. I remember last years was pretty special too.
Thanks again and happy hopping....
The candy tin is adorable. What a fun idea for a small gift. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed your many ideas, especially the games for the kiddos(including the tic-tac-toe that didn't make the cut here!). Your projects were all very nice and "enabling"! I would like to win your blog candy, so my blog hop favorite is Sara's projects using Day of Gratitude. I love that stamp set and think she did a great job showcasing it. It was hard to choose, though. Everyone did an awesome job. Thanks to all!ReplyDelete
I had left my comment before I saw your blog candy, so thought I'd come back and play, but the thing that I thought was so ingenious was Amy's fish, but I can't leave a comment on her blog. Even when I log into wordpress, it never works for me for some reason. I always have to use the name/url thingy and she doesn't have one. But maybe you can pass along my comment to her.ReplyDelete
I'm so happy I ran into y our blog tonight and the Holiday Mini Hop. My favorite has been the French Foliage featured at Heartfeltinkspiration.com. Thanks for the chance at great blog candy.ReplyDelete
I left a comment on Barbara Welch's site. Loved her quilted top note card with the snowmen.ReplyDelete
I like all your ideas and projects, but I really like the poinsettias card. I went through the blog and saw rubberredneck blog. I liked her mini haunted house.ReplyDelete
From one magpie to another, those sparkly cardinals are awesome! The matching game is great!ReplyDelete
Wow!! Every project is just fabulous! Love the seam binding wreath. So creative! And not a bingo game in site! :) Great job!!ReplyDelete
So now I have to get this set and wrap some nuggets. Thanks for the tip!!ReplyDelete
I loved the next blog with the Holy Family. It was gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Cindy, your projects are all superb! I have to say, today the wreath tickles my fancy--no wait, the cardinals. . . .ReplyDelete
And what a fun way to choose your blog candy! Let's see, if I could only give one shout out. . . . it's not easy, but I'm going with Kim's pink retro Christmas ensemble (*hums in her best Elvis tones 'I'll have a pink Christmas with ink. . . .' *)
P.S. Thanks for ruining my life--I've got Jolly Bingo Bits for the Ft. Worth Regionals SA dinner swap. . . . I can just see everyone going home grumpy in their 'I swapped with Holly and all I got was this lame bingo card' t-shirts.
What a great group of projects you've made! Loved everyone of them and want to thank you for sharing. The ribbon wreath was just awesome! TFS.ReplyDelete
Wonderful ideas!! I am gonna have to get this set now. I was limiting it too much but not now!! Thanks for the inspiration!!ReplyDelete
ALL so cute - love the nugget tin the best :-)ReplyDelete
