PTT Challenge #187 – Anything Goes Theme

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Party Time Tuesdays Challenge Blog.  This is weekly Anything Goes Challenge Blog and we’d love to have you come over and join the fun.

I spent the weekend fooling around creating some paper flowers.  I think I’m addicted!  I just love making paper, fabric and ribbon flowers.  Stay tuned for more in upcoming posts.  So, I’m still in Christmas Card mode, although I have not come up with the design for this years Garby Family Christmas Card.  I like to come up with a design I like and then mass product.  This one is not optimal for mailing with that fun dimensional flower, but I sure can hand it to someone!

So this card has a gorgeous double-looped bow made with 7/8″ Ruby Red Double-faced Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I quickly created this gorgeous bow with my Bow-it-All V2.0 Tool.  Making bows is the fastest part of card making for me with that wonderful tool.
This card is featuring lots of yummy dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I used the Ankara Lace Border down each side of my center panel, the Lords and Commons Doily Die in the center and my flower was created with the Build-a-Flower 1 die.  The fun Merry Christmas sentiment is from JustRite Stampers.
This card has been entered in the following challenges:
I hope you’ll head over to the Party Time Tuesdays Challenge Blog and play along with our challenge this week.  We’d love to see what you are creating.
Thanks for stopping by!

Vintage Christmas and PTT Challenge #186 – Anything Goes Theme

It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Party Time Tuesdays Challenge Blog.  This is a weekly Anything Goes Challenge Blog and we’d love to have you come over and join the fun.

This week I tried my hand a ‘vintage’.  Not sure I pulled it off entirely, but it’s not terrible….

The pretty Red/Green Christmas Plaid Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I created that gorgeous layered bow with my Bow-it-All V2.0.  This is my favorite tool by a long shot.  Can’t live without it!  The ribbon was a bit bright for the vintage look, so I toned it down a little by sponging it with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.
You can find that very same plaid ribbon in the scrumptious RRR October Ribbon Club assortment over at RRR.  
This assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim.  PERFECT for your holiday projects.  Gift subscriptions are also available.
That pretty little flower is made with Cheery Lynn Designs Small Tea Rose die B435.  I just love this die.  The edges are lightly inked with white pigment ink.
