I’ve used four of the ribbon styles from the RRR October Ribbon Club assortment on my card today. The pretty Emerald Checkerboard Satin topped with the Christmas Fun Flower Satin runs across my card under the sentiment panel. To avoid extra bulk, I dove-tailed the ends of each piece. I topped off the card with a beautiful bi-color double-loop bow created on my Bow-it-All V2.0. For a video tutorial on how this bow was made, please click HERE.
My card features lots of wonderful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs including the fabulous Poinsettia Strip die for those gorgeous flowers. All the dies used are listed on the supply list at the bottom of this post. Cheery Lynn Designs has a wide selection of dies to help you create stunning holiday cards.

Here is my ‘Headband of the Month’. I will say this – you should definitely experiment with printed ribbons because sometimes even the most unlikely combinations end up giving you fabulous results! For a video tutorial on how to create this headband, please click HERE. Different arrangement of the ribbons in the starting position create different looks on the finished piece.
I made a fun Halloween themed card with lots of my favorite dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and embellished with a couple of the styles from the assortment. The poofy double bow was made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 and it’s just a basic double bow. You can view a video tutorial for a basic bow made on the Bow-it-All Tool HERE.
Hi everyone. I’m very excited to announce that I’ve been asked to join the Cheery Lynn Designs team. I’ve been creating with Cheery Lynn Dies for a while now and it was a dream come true to be invited to join these talented ladies!
I love to get a lot of use from all my dies so I’m always looking for new ideas. The Royal Scandinavian Doily from Cheery Lynn Designs is one of my favorites and it has two pieces. I’ve used the outer piece many times and this card uses the inner square to create a beautiful lacy overlay. The card is embellished with some pretty Shasta Daisy flowers which I’ll show you how to make below and a cute little double bow made with Rust Shimmer Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Below is a quick photo tutorial on how I made the lacy overlay. The first thing I do is apply Stick It! adhesive to the back of the paper I am cutting whenever I use an intricate die. This is the best adhesive I’ve found for intricate die cuts because there is a little ‘play’ time for you to get everything where you want it before it’s permanently affixed. Once you have the die cut placed where you want it, you simply press it down with your fingers or a small brayer.
For this technique I cut my white cardstock to the desired size for my card and then I draw very faint guidelines for the placement of the die. I made the lines quite dark for you to see for this tutorial, but make them as light as possible since you will have to erase them when you are done. Then just run the die through your machine and move to the next position using the guide lines for placement.
Once you have the whole piece cut you will peel the backing from the Stick It! or apply your adhesive of choice and adhere it to the base. Now that you have stabilized the lacy overlay, you can carefully erase your registration marks. I love the look of the kraft background and the white lacy overlay.
Have I mentioned that I LOVE making handmade paper flowers??
Well I do! The Shasta Daisy flower is a quick and easy flower and by changing the colors, you can make it work for just about any holiday or season.
I hope you enjoy my Shasta Daisy video tutorial below.
