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.

I hope you’ll head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and play along with our challenge.  Any type of project is welcome.

Really Reasonable Ribbon March Blog Hop

Welcome to the RRR March Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Amber’s blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.
This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a celebration of Spring. 

Isn’t it pretty?  This assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  What a great way to build your ribbon stash.  Why not JOIN TODAY?!

Well friends, I took a tumble at the end of February and broke a bone in my right hand.  Luckily I work ahead with my projects.  But, I’m reduced to one-handed typing with my non-dominant hand, so this won’t be wordy.  🙂

You can find videos for the bow and headband on my YouTube Channel HERE.
