New Celebrate Themed Challenge on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog

It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog
This time we have a Celebrate Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.


This is the perfect challenge theme to help build up your birthday card stash.  I never have enough of them.  I parted with another piece of hand-marbled paper that I made ages ago that I’ve been hoarding in my stash.  It’s just so pretty that it’s hard to give it up!

I layered a piece of 3/8″ Tutti Frutti Chevron Grosgrain Ribbon over a 5/8″ piece of Regal Purple Diamond Satin Ribbon and ran that around the card under the sentiment.  I topped off the card with a pretty bi-color double-loop bow made with 5/8″ Grape and Turquoise Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.  The bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.

New ‘Add a Flourish’ Challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Add a Flourish themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog.  I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.

This card showcases the gorgeous new Lords & Commons Square Doily.  I used the small inner square in this set and cut it four times and then adhered them to the square medium blue base for a different look.  I also handmade that gorgeous blue tea rose.  If you make your own flowers, they always match your project perfectly!
I finished my bard off with a simple double-loop bow made with Capri Blue Checkerboard Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0 Tool.

Sending Love to You

Hi everyone.  I’m here today with a card showcasing the amazing new Sunflower die from the January 2016 Cheery Lynn Designs new release.

This die is really a ‘show-stopper’.  I cut the sunflower twice in dark yellow cardstock and lightly inked the petals and the flower center.  I also used a stylus tool to shape the petals.  Then I layered the pieces offsetting the petals.  I added the stem and leaves under the flower and ‘planted it’ in one of the nested flower pot dies.  For the flower pot I cut two pots and I cut the top rim off the second piece to layer on top to give some added dimension.  I also inked the edges and shadows on the pot.
I used the Fleur de Lis Border Set to add a little interest around the outside of my cream base.  The sentiment was stamped and then cut with the largest Pierced Banner die.  I lined up one side, cut half way and then turned the die around, lining up the holes on the side and cut the other half.  This gave me the dove tail look on both ends.

You know how I love to finish my cards off with big bows, but this time the sunflower wanted to take center stage.  I added a small loopy bow made with Burlap String from Really Reasonable Ribbon to the bottom of the card above the sentiment.  It added a nice rustic look to the card.  The Bow-it-All V2.0 can make perfect bows from 1/2″ to 9-1/2″ wide.
