The August Ribbon Club Assortment is a beach themed collection of rich autumn colors and prints.  It contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and crochet lace.  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 just adore creating projects with a beautiful autumn color palette.  There is just something about the mix of colors…
I created the paper for the pumpkins and leaves using Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks.  
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 Dies used:
B827 3 Piece Fall Pumpkin Patch Die Set
B838 8 Piece Fall Leaves Die Set
LPC1 Square Piece and Cut Tool
MSD209 Some Bunny Loves You (I used the wavy line die)

 

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the August Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow is topped with a Antique Bronze Gear Embellishment.  I also ran two ribbons from the assortment across the center of the card behind the flower focal point.

New Anything Goes with Ribbon 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 a theme of Anything Goes with Ribbon.

My card today was created using pretty ribbons and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon, a wonderful digital sentiment from Graciellie Design, dies from Cheery Lynn Designs, tools from Westcott Brand and I’ve still been playing with some wonderful Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks to create wonderful background papers.
My digital sentiment is from the Sending Kindness set in the Beautiful Duos Stamp Bundle at Graciellie Design.

I love working with digital sentiments because they can be manipulated to different sizes and slightly different shapes if you are looking to fit them in a certain die shape.  I did elongate this sentiment a bit to fit nicely in my oval die.  As long as you don’t go too far with it, the words won’t look stretched or distorted.  I do my reshaping with Microsoft Publisher, but you can do it with whatever program you happen to have.

By reshaping the sentiment a bit, it fits perfectly in my oval die from Cheery Lynn Designs and it becomes the star of the show.

I layered it on several layers including a pretty Distress Ink paper I made.  I ran a strip of 5/8″ Turftan Brown Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon topped with 3/8″ Gold and Copper Diamond Print Grosgrain Ribbon across the middle of the card and layered the sentiment oval on top of that.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
LPC7 Oval Pierce & Cut Tool Lge
XL7 Oval Classic Large Stacker
B777 Floral Bouqet Kit
DL112AB Small Exotic Butterfies #1

I created a pretty floral spray for the bottom of the card using the Floral Bouquet die set from Cheery Lynn Designs.  The butterflies were also cut from a Distress Ink paper scrap and mounted to the side of the sentiment.The pretty pearl and metal embellishments I used on the flower and the bow are a combination of 8mm Pearls (colored gold) and small Antique Bronze Sprocket Charms as shown below.

My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Turftan Brown Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and 5/8″ Moss/Cream Plaid Ribbon.
