Season’s Greetings Card

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing another holiday card.  If you still have not started your holiday cards, it’s time!!  My card today features pretty ribbons from the November Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I went slightly non-traditional today with the color palette, but can you really go wrong with a purple and green color combo?  I think not!

My sentiment is from the Jingle Bells digital stamp set from Graciellie Design and my dies are all from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:
FR-16 Lattice
XL7 Oval Classic Lge
B324 Poinsettia Strip

Happy Birthday Card for Someone Special

Hello friends.  Today I’m sharing a pretty birthday card that I created for my Mom featuring lots of beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.

I find that birthday cards are the most needed cards and no matter how many I make, I always seem to be behind.  This Birthday Wishes Circle Sentiment is a great addition to your die collection and it can be used over and over in different settings without looking like you are always using the same die.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
B783 Birthday Wishes Circle

My Tea Roses were created by alternating layers of solid cardstock with Distress Ink paper.  I just love two tone roses.  I shaped the petals before layering them for a realistic rose look.

I topped my card off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Rose Bloom and Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The bow was topped off with a pretty Heart Shaped Pearl Embellishment also from RRR.

I also ran a piece of Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon topped with Tutti Frutti Chevron Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon across the center of the card under the sentiment.

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.
