Thank You Very Much!

Hey everyone.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  Now a few days to relax a bit before real life starts up again……

I’m playing along with the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge again this week and the theme is Anything Goes.

Since I don’t have a huge collection of Cheery Lynn Dies (yet), I have to make the most of the ones I have.  The beautiful background made of kraft color paper was made with the small inner piece of my Alpine Flourish Doily.  I cut the kraft paper piece a little larger than needed and I then ran the die through the machine, moved it over next to the first cut and continued this way until the whole piece was cut.  I then trimmed it down to my desired size. 
Those beautiful roses are made with the Tea Rose Medium Die – one of my favorites.  I just love making paper flowers, so stay tuned for more in the upcoming weeks.

And of course my beautiful bow is made with one of my favorite ribbons – Delicate Stitched Satin in Royal Blue from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It was created with my Bow-it-All V2.0.
My Thank You sentiment is a digital stamp from Create with TLC.

RRR Challenge #105 Anything Goes with Ribbon Theme AND Blog Hopping with Heartfelt Creations

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

This time we have an Anything Goes with Ribbon or Trim Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.  

We are also Blog Hopping today showing off some great products from Heartfelt Creations.

If you arrived here from Carolyn’s Blog, you are on the right track.  If not, why don’t you head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the fabulous projects.
My first card showcases my new favorite flower die of all time!  This gorgeous flower was made using the Heartfelt Designs Vintage Floret Die.  Isn’t it gorgeous?  I accented it with some 35mm Green Mulberry Leaves and Silver Metallic String from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I cut the flower pieces from light blue cardstock and inked the edges with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and shaped the petals with a large stylus.  The lovely word art is a digital stamp from Create with TLC.
I liked this card so much, I made another in a different color combo.  Which one do you like best?
I also made a couple of cards using the fabulous Heartfelt Creations Christmas Card Collection.  This is a great paper collection that give you everything you need to whip up loads of Christmas cards in very little time.  
I wanted a little dimension in my cards so I used two of each of the images.  I cut around the central image on both and popped it up on some foam tape above the larger image.  I used 3/8″ Buttermilk Satin with Gold Metallic Edges Ribbon and I created the double-layer double-looped bow with my Bow-it-All V2.0.  For video tutorials on how to make this great bow and more, visit my YouTube Channel.
This pretty card was accented with 5/8″ Ivory Diamond Satin.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
