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.

Not a member yet?

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.

Birthday Wishes Card

Hey ribbon lovers.  Today I have a pretty birthday card to share with you featuring some bright colors and pretty ribbon and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I love these bright colors for summer.  I made my background with Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks.  I used a stencil on the top and the bottom is just sponged and spritzed inks.

I didn’t have a lot of time to make flowers this time and this Indie Bouquet  die set from Cheery Lynn Designs has easy ‘cut and go’ flowers.  The foliage is from the Floral Bouquet Kit Die Set.  I adhered yellow 10mm Resin Pieces to the center of my flowers.

I stamped my sentiment and then added an orange layer and some white mulberry paper.  I wrapped a layered piece of ribbon consisting of 5/8″ apple green Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and 3/8″ Citrus Chevron Grosgrain Ribbon across the middle of my card securing in the back.  I then adhered the sentiment oval on top of that ribbon band.
My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Daffodil and Tangerine Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I added an 8mm White Half Pearl to the center of my bow.

Cheery Lynn Designs Lace Themed Challenge

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Lace themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog.  I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.
9-1-16-1My card today features the beautiful Daisy Lace Frame and I really wanted to make it ‘POP’.  I cut it out of a piece of marbled paper I made many years ago.  I kept the card really simple because I didn’t want to cover up any more of the lovely lace background.

9-1-16-3My beautiful bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using Tropic and Turquoise Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.  I also ran a piece of Theresa White Crochet Lace across the middle under the sentiment panel.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll head on over to the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog and play along with our challenge for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Cheery Lynn Designs Store.
