Wishing You a Blessed Winter

Hello friends.  Today I’m sharing a card featuring pretty ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon paired with wonderful digital stamps and digital papers from Graciellie Design.

For my card today, I used some digital images from the Winter Blessings Set from Graciellie Design and ribbon from the November Ribbon Club Assortment.

The November Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon 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!

This was a really quick and easy card to create.  I simply arranged the pine branch and sentiment as I wanted them, printed it out on cardstock and cut the rectangle to size.  I quickly colored the pine branch with Copic Markers G99 and G99 by just flicking.  No need for precision for this coloring job.

Once colored, I layered the central panel on some different color cardstock layers to coordinate with my bow and boom – DONE.  This would be a really great quick and easy assembly line Christmas card, especially if you are low on time.  You could even simplify or eliminate the bow for additional time savings.  The simple ribbon across the center under the sentiment would be enough ribbon if you want the card to be flat for mailing.

Here is a look at the inside using two more of the digis in the set.  No reason why you can’t make the inside pretty too.

My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the 5/8″ ribbons from the November Ribbon Club Assortment.  The center is finished off with a pretty 12mm Dotted Wave Rhinestone.

I printed the digital paper I selected and used it for my background paper.  I then sized the sentiment to fit the oval die I wanted to use.  This is what I LOVE about digital stamps.  I can make them fit whatever die I select.

My poinsettia flower was created using some Distress Ink paper I had left from another project and the die I used is the Poinsettia Strip from Cheery Lynn Designs.  It coordinates wonderfully with the digital paper.  The center of the flower was made with Gold Double Head Stamens.

My beautiful bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the 5/8″ printed ribbons from the October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow is adorned with a 14mm Flower Shaped Rhinestone.

Inspiration Blog Hop with Graciellie Design and Unity Stamp Company


>> For the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog Hop, please scroll down or click HERE. <<

Hello friends and welcome to the October mid-month Graciellie Design Inspiration Blog Hop.  We are continuing to celebrate the new stamp release from Unity Stamp Company featuring beautiful images and sentiments from Graciellie Design.

You should have arrived here from Arjeta’s blog.  If not, head back to the Graciellie Design Blog which is the beginning of the hop.
Today I’m working with the Sending Kindness stamp set from Unity Stamp Company which includes this pretty flower image, a pear, a bee and 5 sentiments.  So versatile!
I am also honored to be working with some great new tools this month from Westcott Brand.  You can see the wonderful scissors I’ve been working with in the photo below.  Surprise bonus is that they coordinate with the color of my project!  lol   I’m also in love with the wonderful craft knife from Westcott Brand with the soft grip which you will see in the next photo also with the precision scissors that come with a lanyard.  No more lost scissors!!
I decided to give watercolors a go this time and considering I have no idea what I’m doing with watercolors, it didn’t come out half bad…
I stayed in a kinda-sorta autumn color palette and included a little burst of apple green.  I like the way it turned out paired with the brown tones.

For the inside of my card, I stamped the sentiment at the top of the card and added a bee at the bottom left.  I then created some layers with the brown cardstock and some pretty natural mulberry paper.  Why not make the inside of the card pretty too?!

I created my pretty bi-color bow on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Moss/Cream Plaid Ribbon and 5/8″ Apple Green Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow is adorned with a lovely Antique Vintage Flower Charm.
