Cheery Lynn Designs ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ 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 and leave a comment answering the question on the Cheery Lynn  Designs Blog to be entered to win a $20 gift certificate for Cheery Lynn Designs. 

Today we are showcasing lots of wonderful Christmas/Winter dies from the huge selection that Cheery Lynn Designs offers.  We are really just scratching the surface, so be sure to head on over and look around at all the fabulous options.

My card today features the wonderful Merry Christmas Pine and Partridge Sentiment and the wonderful Poinsettia Strip die.

I cut my sentiment twice in a green Distress Ink Paper I created and then twice in red cardstock.  I backed all the cardstock with Stick It Adhesive before I cut it so it would be easy to adhere.  I selected the areas I wanted to show in red and carefully cut away the rest before adhering the layers.  By adding two layers of red, it gives the sentiment more depth.

If you are making lots of cards assembly line fashion, this sentiment looks lovely in one color too which will speed up production.

I created a piece of mottled Distress Ink Paper for my poinsettias because this pretty paper gives a bit more depth and interest to the flowers.  I cut the flowers and shaped the petals before assembling.  I cut two layers in green for the leaves at the bottom.  The centers are created with White Double Head Stamens.

My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the Christmas themed October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow is adorned with a pretty Silver Glitter Stardust Rhinestone.

Merry Christmoose Card

Hello friends.  Today I’m sharing a Christmas card using the adorable Merry Christmoose die from Cheery Lynn Designs and ribbon from the October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Don’t you just LOVE this cute little guy?

I created a piece of mottled gray cardstock using the Hickory Smoke Distress Ink pad to use with the Aspen Forest frame die.  I was going for more of a white birch tree look and I was very satisfied with the results.

The adorable moose is really easy to assemble.  You cut the different pieces in the colors of your choice and then glue them together.  Easy peasy.  I went over the eyes, ear and mouth lines with a thin black marker to make them stand out a bit more.

I cut the sentiment twice and stacked it for a bit of extra thickness and dimension.

I adhered the grass strip to the bottom and tucked two legs behind and left two on top for a little more of a feeling of depth in the scene.

Really Reasonable Ribbon October Blog Hop

 Welcome to the October Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Cheryl’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 beautiful mix of Christmas themed ribbon.

JOIN TODAY!

The October Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and lace.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed ribbon collection.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

So, I set out this month to create a flat card that you could easily mail in an envelope with no additional postage.  I actually did that (and should have photographed it that way), but it screamed for a bow!!  So I gave in…
Seriously, you could make this very card and omit the bow at the top and it would look gorgeous and mail beautifully.  I just LOVE bows so much that I couldn’t help myself…..

If you want to recreate this card without the bow at the top, simply adhere dove-tailed strips of ribbon across the back of your main panel before you adhere it to the card base.  This adds lots of visual interest and it’s a great way to use up some of those ribbon scraps.
My simple double-loop bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using the diamond satin ribbon style from the October Ribbon Club Assortment.  The center of the bow is adorned with a pretty 12mm Glitter Stardust Rhinestone.
