Really Reasonable Ribbon Spring and/or Easter Challenge

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog
This time we have a Spring and/or Easter Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.

I had some glittery fun with this card which is very unlike me!  I’m not a fan of messy, but this is a fun technique to try.

I applied Stick It adhesive to the front side of my white cardstock and then I die cut my bunnies and Easter eggs.  Once cut, I removed the adhesive backing on each piece and applied Art Glitter Microfine Transparent Glitter in #711 Winter White.  I made sure to press the glitter on really well and shook off the excess.  Then I colored all the pieces with Copic Markers.  I then used a foam pad and stylus to gently shape the pieces for a bit of dimension.  I used foam tape to adhere the pieces to my card.

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
B527 Bunnies
E669 Bird Nest & Eggs
B126 Grass Border
DL306 Dutch Daisy Oval Doily
L-7 Oval Classic
XL-7 Oval Classic Lge Nesting Die

My beautiful bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using 5/8″ Wisteria Diamond Satin Ribbon and 5/8″ Rose Bloom Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also have a piece of 3/8″ Wildflower Grosgrain Ribbon running across the middle of the card.

New Anything Goes Challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Anything Goes themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog.  I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.

My card today is pretty clean and simple – at least for me.  I tried something new with the Lattice #2 die which you can see on the top part of the card.  If you use this die or the any of the frame dies and do white on white, it takes on the look of beautiful, deep dry embossing.  I really like this look.
