Cheery Lynn Designs July Vintage New Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs July Vintage New Release Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Cherry’s Blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.

Be sure to hop along to all the stops and then comment on the post on the Cheery Lynn Blog answering one or more of the questions for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Cheery Lynn Designs. 

My card is A2 size (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″) with a dark brown base.  I created some ivory background paper using Distress Inks.  I created some layers with blue and dark brown card stock along with natural mulberry paper.  That was topped off with the distress ink paper I made.

I cut the Vintage Tile die out of blue card stock twice to stack on my card.  I cut the Tin Lizze in dark brown, black and silver card stock and cut out different areas of each and added them to a base car which I cut out of dark brown metallic card stock to show off all the intricate details.  I layered the card on to my oval medallion and centered it on top of a dove tailed piece of brown ribbon.
I stamped my sentiment on cream card stock and cut using one of the Nesting Doll Tag dies and added it to the bottom left of my card.I finished things off with a shabby bow and some golden brown half pearls along with a pretty Antique Bronze Vintage Flower Charm.

My shabby bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using Turftan Brown Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and Light Blue Burlap String from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

One Year Older…

Hi friends.  Today I have a CAS (Clean and Simple) birthday card that would be perfect for a male friend or family member.  
I don’t like to put bows on my masculine cards, but I really can’t resist just a little something…..  I think Navy Burlap String from Really Reasonable Ribbon is the perfect embellishment.  I found a funky button in my stash with 6 holes and I threaded the string through that.  Nice and masculine, right?

New Challenge on the RRR Blog – Masculine Theme with Ribbon or Trim

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog

This time we have a Masculine with ribbon or trim theme.
I used 3/8″ Light Navy Grosgrain Ribbon and Navy and Natural Burlap Woven Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon which seemed appropriately ‘manly’.  The burlap woven ribbon is a fun trim.  It comes as a 3/8″ ribbon type of burlap, but if you stretch is side to side, it opens out to a wider open weave which is kind of cool.  
I found a fun button with wide openings instead of hole for sewing and the 3/8″ grosgrain ribbon fit in nicely.  I like the look.
This card has been entered in the following challenges:
I hope you’ll head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and play along with our challenge.  Any type of project is welcome.
Thanks for stopping by!
