Thinking of You

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing a card in my favorite color combo of pink and purple that features Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This is my all time favorite ribbon style for making beautiful bows.

I admit I’ve been in a little bit of a funk lately and my creativity just isn’t there.  It doesn’t mean I don’t like to make stuff though and when this happens, I like to do things that don’t take too much thought.  So I grabbed some pretty paper I made a while back and made some beautiful handmade roses.  I find work like this to be relaxing since I get to use my hands and I don’t really need to do too much thinking.  My rose and doily dies are all from Cheery Lynn Designs.
My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Hot Pink and Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Supplies:
Ribbon:  Really Reasonable Ribbon
Stamp:  Just Rite Stampers Large Fancy Sentiments
Dies:  Cheery Lynn Designs (see list above)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Grape Jelly
Colorburst pigments used to create the paper for the roses
Adhesives:  Stick It, Scotch ATG, Designer Dries Clear, E6000
Bow it All V3.0
White Mulberry Paper

New ‘Show Me the Green’ Themed Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon

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

This time we have a ‘Show Me the Green’ Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.

My card features my very favorite Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon with some very cheerful Citrus Chevron Striped Grosgrain Ribbon wrapped around the middle of the card for a splash of color.

My dies are all from Cheery Lynn Designs and I pulled out my Dylusions Fronds of Foliage Stencil and created the subtle background using my Clarity Stencil Brush Set and some green Distress Inks.

My perky bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using 5/8″ Daffodil and Kiwi Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

New ‘Anything Goes’ Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hi friends.  We have a new ‘Anything Goes’ themed challenge up and running over on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.  I hope you’ll head on over and play along!

I started with a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ brown card base.  I backed a piece of pink cardstock with Stick It Adhesive and cut using the Quatrefoil A2 Frame 2.  I adhered the die cut to a piece of cream cardstock.  I then trimmed that to 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″.  I layered that on to pink cardstock and then brown cardstock leaving a small border on each.  Then I added some natural mulberry paper and wet the edges to tear leaving a feathery edge.

I created my Love You Sentiment in the same fashion.  Apply Stick It Adhesive to the back of pink cardstock, cut with the Love You die and then adhere to cream cardstock.  I then cut a brown base using the Square Pierce & Cut die.  This was then backed with natural mulberry paper.  I ran a piece of 5/8″ Turftan Brown Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon topped with 3/8″ Sherbet Double-Faced Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon across the top of the main panel dove-tailing the sherbet ribbon.  Then the sentiment panel was attached on top of that.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:

B435 Tea Rose Small
B436 Tea Rose Medium
 

The beautiful roses were created with the small and medium tea rose dies.  I used both cream and pink cardstock to build the layers.  I inked the cream using wadded wax paper and also inked the edges of both colors for definition.  Then the leaves were shaped and the flowers were assemble.  The flowers and foliage were added to the card below the sentiment.

The card was finished off with a pretty bi-color double-loop bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using Sherbet and Turftan Brown Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
