Love You….

Happy hump-day everyone.  We made it to Wednesday!  It’s all downhill to the weekend from here.
Today I’m playing along with the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge – Shaped Card theme.

I just love making beautiful paper flowers and I was playing around with the Cheery Lynn Designs Tea Rose Medium and the Sweet Christine Flowers for this card.
I had my round card finished and it was just a little blah…..  No personality at all!  So I was shuffling through my die scraps from previous projects and came across the piece on the top which is a portion of the Royal Scandinavian Doily die.  It looks like a little crown, right?!  Perfect finishing touch.
My bow is a simple double-looped bow made with 5/8″ Delicate Stitched Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  For how-to videos on creating beautiful bows with the Bow-it-All, please visit my YouTube channel.  
Isn’t the pretty Sweet Christine flower a pretty finishing touch for the bow?
Here is a close-up of all the gorgeous flowers.

Not a member of Ribbon Club yet?  Join today!!  This is the perfect way to build your ribbon stash so you always have just the right color and style for every project.
I was having so much fun I made 3 projects this month.  My bows were made on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  To view all my Bow-it-All video tutorials, visit my YouTube channel.  I have a brand new Double-Loop Double-Layer Bow Tutorial out which will show you how I created the plaid bow below.
I’m entering the card above in the following challenges:
And of course my Woven Ribbon Headband of the Month!  This would be prefect for St. Patty’s Day as well as all summer long.  The shimmer in the kiwi shimmer satin is so nice in person.  I wish it would photograph as good as it really is.  You can find a video tutorial for this headband HERE.  This one was made using a 3/4″ White Plastic Headband.

I *HEART* You – Yes I do!

Hi there crafty friends.  I’m squeezing in one more Valentine’s themed card.  Can you believe it’s mid-February already.  Wowzers!
I’m also introducing an all new bow I’ve been working on with my Zutter Bow-it-All V2.0.  Watch for a new video tutorial soon!
This bow was made with Hot Pink and Apple Green Delicate Stitched Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This ribbon is my top pick for the most cooperative ribbon to work with for these bows.
This sweet digital stamp is from Whimsie Doodles.  Isn’t she adorable?!
Here is a close-up of this fun bow.
Here you can see the gorgeous Sweet William Flowers from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I had a few of these flowers left over from the video tutorial I did a few weeks ago.  If you missed it, you can view the video HERE.
