Happy Birthday Card

Hi friends.  Today I have a fun birthday card created in seasonal colors featuring Copper Glitz Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

This pretty Glitz Ribbon comes in 11 great colors.  It’s a lovely lightweight shimmery ribbon and it is wonderful for bow making.

I also played around with some machine and hand stitching on this card.  I really like the look.
My bow is a simple double loop bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0.

‘Orange’ You Glad it’s Autumn Themed Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.


This time we have an ‘Orange’ You Glad it’s Autumn Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.
I created a kanzashi flower using 1-1/2″ Grosgrain Ribbon in tangerine and black and 1-1/2″ Gingham Ribbon in orange from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This will be worn as a Halloween pin, but it could also easily be a hair clip.

For a video tutorial on how to create the single layer kanzashi petals, please click HERE.

Stay tuned for a video tutorial for the double-layer kanzashi petals soon!

Christmas Wreath Card

Hi friends.  Today I am sharing a Christmas card for inspiration.  No more procrastinating.  Time to get crackin’ on those holiday cards!  This week on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog, the design team will be featuring all their favorite Christmas dies.  Head on over each day though October 21st for new inspiration.10-15-16-1

My card today features some beautiful Christmas dies from Cheery Lynn Designs along with this fabulous Traditional Christmas Mix October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.october2016lgeNot a member yet?
You will begin with this gorgeous holiday themed assortment that has 9 styles and 17 yards of ribbon and trim.
Each month you will receive a new color or holiday themed ribbon assortment.
What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

10-15-16-2My card is a 5-1/2″ square card and I do have several layers including a pretty white mulberry paper layer at the bottom.  The inner white square that I placed the wreath on measures 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″.  That is layered on red and I trimmed a small border.  Below that you can see the Square Frame die in green which is mounted on a 4-1/8″ square of white cardstock.
I cut the wreath in emerald, dark green, and gold cardstock and then layered them all for added dimension.  I then cut some berries from red cardstock and added them throughout the wreath.  I topped it off with a pretty gold jingle bell and bow.  The corners are adorned with holly in red and green.
