Merry Christmoose Card

Hello friends.  Today I’m sharing a Christmas card using the adorable Merry Christmoose die from Cheery Lynn Designs and ribbon from the October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Don’t you just LOVE this cute little guy?

I created a piece of mottled gray cardstock using the Hickory Smoke Distress Ink pad to use with the Aspen Forest frame die.  I was going for more of a white birch tree look and I was very satisfied with the results.

The adorable moose is really easy to assemble.  You cut the different pieces in the colors of your choice and then glue them together.  Easy peasy.  I went over the eyes, ear and mouth lines with a thin black marker to make them stand out a bit more.

I cut the sentiment twice and stacked it for a bit of extra thickness and dimension.

I adhered the grass strip to the bottom and tucked two legs behind and left two on top for a little more of a feeling of depth in the scene.

Season’s Greetings Card

Hi everyone.  Today I’m sharing a fun Christmas card with a couple of the new holiday dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and ribbon from the October Christmas themed Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a fun Christmas themed assortment of ribbon.Not a member yet?
JOIN TODAY!
The October Ribbon Club Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed ribbon collection.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

I was going for a white birch tree look for the trees in the Aspen Forest A2 Frame die, so I created some paper using my hickory smoke Distress Ink pad for the trees.  The background hills were just fussy cut curved pieces of white cardstock that I edged with some light blue ink.  I created the road with a strip of grey cardstock.

I cut the car and tree with metallic blue cardstock and some green Distress Ink paper I had left from another project and I also cut some details out in red, black, silver and yellow paper and pieced them in to the appropriate area.  Season’s Greetings was stamped below on the white cardstock.

I added a layer of red cardstock leaving a small border and then added white mulberry paper beneath that before adhering to my card base.

My card was topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow is topped off with a pretty 12mm Silver Glitter Stardust Rhinestone.

Boo! Halloween Card

Hi everyone.  Today I’m sharing a really fun and spooky Halloween card created with the incredible Ultimate Halloween 5 piece die set from Cheery Lynn Designs and fun ribbons from the September Halloween themed Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

My orange background, pumpkin die cuts and the dark night sky background were all made using Distress Ink papers that I created.
The die cuts are very straightforward.  I simply cut them in the colors shown using cardstock with Stick It adhesive on the back.  For the pumpkins and tree, I added the colors that you see for the eyes, nose and mouth.  I added the cat in black on the tree as well.
I added some grass using the Grass Border 2 die and placed the tree in front of it and I tucked the pumpkins behind it to create some depth.

The details on the dies add so much character to the pieces.

My card is topped off with a shabby bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using Black Bold Plaid Check Ribbon from the September Halloween themed Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You can also see two more ribbons from this assortment running across the center of the card under the main panel.  I topped the bow off with a wiggle eye.
