This month I created a fun Halloween themed greeting card. 

My card is topped off with a pretty shabby bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using the black checkerboard ribbon from the September Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the center was topped with a  Steampunk Metal Gear Embellishment.  I also added a double layer of pretty ribbons across the center of the card under the sentiment.

I Heard There Was Cake…

Hi crafty friends.  Today I have a cute little card to share that I made for my niece for her birthday which happens to be today!  Happy Birthday Melina!!
My card features a new stamp and die set from My Maker’s Movement and some Baker’s Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Did you hear that Cheery Lynn Designs is now My Maker’s Movement?  They are still stocking some favorites from the Cheery Lynn offerings and they are also offering a fabulous new line of stamp and die sets.  Head on over and take a look!

My Maker’s Movement product:
MSD206 – I Heard There Was Cake 

I dusted off the Copic markers for this one and it was fun!!  I need some more practice, but it was a nice change from my usual style.

My card was finished off with two cute little bows in the upper corners created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using Solid Pink Baker’s Twine.  This card is nice and flat for mailing and it still satisfies my need for a bow.  🙂

The fuzzy layer of paper behind my main panel is mulberry paper.  If you would like to see how I use this paper, I have a video HERE.

Autumn Note Card

Hi crafty friends.  Today I’m swinging in with a fun autumn themed card to share that features some pretty ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

 
My card today features two of the ribbons from the August Ribbon Club Assortment.  If you aren’t already a member, no worries – you can still get this great assortment!  
 
This month we have a great deal for US residents. 
You can get the August and September assortments together for a special low introductory price of just $17.00!

The August Ribbon Club Assortment is a collection of rich autumn colors and prints.  It contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and crochet lace.  The September Ribbon Club Assortment is a Halloween themed assortment with 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed collection of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.
 

I kept this card relatively flat for mailing.  You could even eliminate the Thin 3D Foam Tabs under the leaves to make it even flatter. 

This is also a perfect way to use up those precious ribbon scraps that you don’t want to part with.  I just dove tailed the end of two 5-1/2″ pieces of each color of ribbon and even spaced them over the background Distress Ink paper I created.  I then added the leaf squares on top of the ribbon.

Did you hear that Cheery Lynn Designs is now My Maker’s Movement?  They are still stocking some favorites from the Cheery Lynn offerings and they are also offering a fabulous new line of stamp and die sets.  Head on over and take a look!

Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:
B838 8 Piece Fall Leaves Die Set
M7 Oval Classic Stacker Layers Small
XM7 Oval Die 
LPC-1 Square Pierce & Cut Tool Lge

 

I get lots of questions about the ‘fuzzy layer’ that I use on a lot of my cards. 

That layer is Mulberry paper and you can view a video on how I use it and where I get it HERE.
