Sending Love to You Card

Hi friends.  Today I have another card featuring some of the Vintage New Release dies from Cheery Lynn Designs along with lovely ribbon from the July Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  What a great combination!

My card today features the Vintage Hot Air Balloon Die set from the new Vintage release.  This is such a fun die with amazing detail.  Just look at that basket.
This is a two piece set and there is a die included which will but out the balloon portion for you so you can make it any color you want.  No fussy cutting needed!
My sentiment was stamped on one of the Weathered Scrolls dies.  In order to get the dark back layer, I traced around the die and cut in dark purple.

I also pulled out my Whimsical Sun & Clouds die set and cut a variety of clouds to use in my sky.

My card was topped off with a bi-color bow made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 tool using two of the ribbon styles in the July Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I then added a pretty Pearl Star Shaped Embellishment to the center of the bow.

Cheery Lynn Designs July Vintage New Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs July Vintage New Release Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Cherry’s Blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.

Be sure to hop along to all the stops and then comment on the post on the Cheery Lynn Blog answering one or more of the questions for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Cheery Lynn Designs. 

My card is A2 size (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″) with a dark brown base.  I created some ivory background paper using Distress Inks.  I created some layers with blue and dark brown card stock along with natural mulberry paper.  That was topped off with the distress ink paper I made.

I cut the Vintage Tile die out of blue card stock twice to stack on my card.  I cut the Tin Lizze in dark brown, black and silver card stock and cut out different areas of each and added them to a base car which I cut out of dark brown metallic card stock to show off all the intricate details.  I layered the card on to my oval medallion and centered it on top of a dove tailed piece of brown ribbon.
I stamped my sentiment on cream card stock and cut using one of the Nesting Doll Tag dies and added it to the bottom left of my card.I finished things off with a shabby bow and some golden brown half pearls along with a pretty Antique Bronze Vintage Flower Charm.

My shabby bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using Turftan Brown Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and Light Blue Burlap String from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

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.

If you LOVE purple, the July ‘Perfectly Purple’ Ribbon Club Assortment is going to knock your socks off!!

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.
