The Bells Still Ring For Those Who Truly Believe

Hi friends.   Today I’m sharing a pretty card using the lovely Christmas Bell die set from Cheery Lynn Designs along with some lovely ribbon from the November Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The pretty color palette for this card was inspired by the November Country Holiday Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

The November assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbons.

This bell set is so pretty!  I cut the bell die twice, once using a pretty purple/pink Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink paper I created and once in silver shimmer cardstock.  I then pieced in the silver accents.  The holly berries and leaves were added to the top of the bell.
The wonderful digital sentiment if from the Jingle Bells Digital Stamp Set from Graciellie Design.

May Peace Be Your Gift This Christmas

Hello friends.  Today I’m sharing a colorful Christmas card featuring the pretty Poinsettia Strip die from Cheery Lynn Designs and gorgeous ribbon from the October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I love the poinsettia die because it’s just so versatile.  Today I’m using some digital Christmas papers from Graciellie Design for some of the layers mixed with some red Distress Ink paper I created.  It’s a really interesting look.  I cut the layers of petals and shaped them a bit and then assembled.  I then added some greenery using the Pine Branches die.

My digital sentiment is from the Cheery Christmas Digital Stamp Set from Graciellie Design.The digital paper I used is from this Holiday Traditions Digital Paper Pack.

The November Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed ribbon collection.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

Today I went for a pink and purple holiday color palette.  I really do love these colors for Christmas cards.  Don’t you?  They are also great for creating generic holiday cards and winter themed cards.
My lovely digital sentiment is from the Winter Blessing Digital Stamp Set from Graciellie Design.
I just love digital stamps as I can resize them  and even reshape them a bit if necessary to fit in to any die that I want to use.  This makes the stamps very versatile and easy to use.

I used a variety of different colors and styles of mulberry paper roses and some pink Spiral Stamens to embellish below my sentiment.
 My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the 5/8″ ribbon styles from the November Ribbon Club Assortment.  The center of the bow is adorned with a 15mm Open Rose.
