Happy Birthday Card in Purple

Hi friends.  Today I have a birthday card to share that I made using some of the gorgeous ribbons from the July Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

The July ‘Perfectly Purple’ Ribbon Club Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed mix of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

Today I grabbed a Spellbinders die that has been sitting idle on my shelf for years.  Do you have some of these crafty things too??  You just had to have it and then never use it.  It’s a shame.  So, dust off those crafty goodies and USE them.  🙂

This card came together pretty quickly as I let the background die do most of the work.  The purple background paper (and the green accents paper as well) was created using Distress Inks.  I added some pearls to the butterfly to create a body.  Then I stamped my sentiment and mounted it on a tag die.  I layered two of the ribbons from the July Ribbon Club Assortment to use for the sentiment tag.  I adhered the ribbon to the back of the main panel and then backed that with white mulberry paper.

I created a pretty bi-color bow using my Bow-it-All V3.0 using two of the 5/8″ ribbon styles from the assortment.  I topped off the bow with a Heart Shaped Flat Back Pearl Bead.  Once completed, I added it to my card below my sentiment.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #167 – Anything Goes theme

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


This time we have an Anything Goes Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.

For the base of my tag I created a pretty paper using Distress Inks.  I added some additional ink to a scrap of that same paper to make the butterfly paper a bit darker so it would stand out.

I used some pretty 15mm Open Roses for the body of the butterfly and for the butterfly antennae I took a piece of White Spiral Stamen and straightened it out and glued it on top of the cut out.

The sentiment is a great stamp from Quietfire Design.  I added three pretty 10mm Star Flatback Beads above the sentiment.

I took several strands of Burlap String in White, Pink and Light Blue and attached it to the tag through the top hole.  I then topped that with a bow.

My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using two of the 5/8″ width ribbons from the June Ribbon Club Assortment (available through the end of July).

I hope you’ll head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and play along with our challenge.  Any type of project is welcome.

Thinking of You Card

Today I have a very purple-y ‘Thinking of You’ card to share featuring some gorgeous dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and pretty ribbon and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  What a great combination!

I just LOVE purple, don’t you?  Add a little green for contrast and oh-la-la.

The July assortment has 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 ribbon styles.

My card measures 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and I built a few layers including a pretty layer at the bottom using white mulberry paper.  I topped that with purple and green and then a piece of Distress Ink paper I made in purple with a little green and layered the Felicity Doily on that.

I then added a strip of ribbon across the center and topped that with my sentiment circle.For the bottom half of my card, I created 3 gorgeous flowers using the Black Eyed Susan Strip.  I cut the flowers out of the same Distress Ink paper and used a plum color for the centers.  I created a bed of greenery using the foliage dies from the Floral Bouquet kit and added the flowers on top of that.

This flower looks so complicated, but is in fact one of the easier flowers to make.  I will include my video tutorial below.
