The Few, The Proud, The Graduates

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing a graduation card made with a couple of my favorite dies from Cheery Lynn Designs along with some pretty ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I know for some parts of the USA, graduation is all but a fond memory, but here in the Northeast, school is still in session through the third week in June, so it’s weird for me to think graduation before now.  If it’s too late for your area, you can always switch up the sentiment and use the same card design for another occasion.

Beautiful Floral Birthday Card

Hello ribbon lovers.  Today I am sharing a pretty floral birthday card featuring some of the ribbons form the new June Ocean Breeze Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This is such a beautiful collection with soft pastel colors.

Not a member yet?

The June assortment contains 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.  Treat yourself today!

My card is a lovely mix of pretty ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon and beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.  My background paper was made with Distress Inks so I could pull in several of the colors from the Ribbon Club Assortment.  I love the way it turned out.  It’s actually left over pieces from another project I will share next week.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:

My pretty bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using the two 5/8″ Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbons from the June Ribbon Club Assortment.

Birthday Wishes Card

Hi friends.  I’m guest designing over on the Crafting by Design Challenge Blog for the June Challenge.  The theme for June is ‘Anything Goes’ and I’d love to have you head on over and link up a project (or three).

My card today features my favorite Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and one of the new Heart Shaped Dotted Wave Rhinestones from Really Reasonable Ribbon along with some gorgeous dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.

 I’m still playing around with Distress Inks and I’m LOVING them.  So much fun!  I also added some Distress Oxide Inks on the paper I made for the roses.

I wrapped some 5/8″ Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon around the center of my card under the sentiment and topped that with 3/8″ Tutti Frutti Chevron Grosgrain Ribbon for some added color.

My pretty bi-color bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 tool using 5/8″ Hot Pink and Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I finished off the center of the bow with a pink Heart Shaped Dotted Wave Rhinestone.
