JOIN TODAY!

The May Ribbon Club Assortment is a Red, White and Blue Ribbon Mix that contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a holiday or color themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

While this assortment is great for Patriotic themed cards like the one I shared in THIS POST, it’s also great for other summer occasions.  I made a great Summer Birthday Card a few days ago along with this fun summer card I’m sharing today.  This card would be a great note card or even a summer bbq invitation.

Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:
FRM155 Chevron A2 Frame

My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the styles from the May Ribbon Club Assortment.  I embellished the center of my bow with a 13mm Pearl Star.

Jo’s Scrap Shack’s 5th Blogaversary Birthday Celebration Blog Hop

Welcome to Jo’s Scrap Shack’s 5th blogaversary birthday celebration hop! In honor of celebrating 5 wonderful years, Jo has an amazing two day blog hop lined up with 18 talented designers, several sponsors,  some of which are among the top companies in the industry and lots of blog candy! So please share this news with your crafty friends, grab your favorite beverage and hop along with us! If you want to start at the beginning of the hop, go visit Jo’s Scrap Shack. If that’s where you started, you should have come from Tina’s blog and if you did, you are right on track with the hop!

I’m so excited to be participating in this blog hop.  Congratulations to Jo for 5 wonderful years of blogging!  Be sure to stop by Jo’s Blog to see all the wonderful prizes that are available and see what you need to do to be entered to win.  Winners will be announced May 9th on Jo’s blog.
My color palette today is red, white and blue which corresponds with the Really Reasonable Ribbon May Ribbon Club Assortment.  This is a very versatile and bold color palette and I think it works for just about any summer occasion.  I love how it looks on this birthday card.

I created my blue background paper and the papers I used for my flowers and butterfly using distress inks and distress oxide inks.  I used just about all the reds, blues and greens to create the papers.  I cut and shaped my flowers from the Floral Bouquet Kit from Cheery Lynn Designs using a foam pad and stylus and added the foliage and flowers to the lower left corner building from the bottom up starting with the foliage.  The flower centers are 10 and 14mm Half Pearls from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the May Ribbon Club Assortment.  You can see a third red patterned satin ribbon peeking out beneath the flowers and butterfly that I wrapped around the center of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop.

The April assortment has 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim.  The May assortment has 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a holiday or color themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

Really Reasonable Ribbon also carries a fabulous line of Mulberry Flowers that are perfect for all your crafty creations.  Head on over and take a look at all the different flower options that are available.  The flowers I used today below my sentiment panel are 15 and 20mm Open Roses in red, white and blue.

My background paper was created using Distress Inks in Festive Berry and Faded Jeans.  I applied it to my paper with a foam applicator and spritzed it with water to create the mottled effect.  The beautiful lattice background was made with a die from Cheery Lynn Designs.

My pretty bi-color double-loop bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using two styles from the May Ribbon Club Assortment.  I also used some additional ribbon from the assortment to wrap around the middle of my card under the sentiment panel.  My bow was embellished with a pretty 8 mm Flat Back Pearl.
