Really Reasonable Ribbon Mother’s Day Themed Challenge

[For the Jo’s Scrap Shack Blog Hop, please click HERE.]
Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.
 
This time we have a Mother’s Day Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.

 I created my pretty background paper with Distress Inks.  I covered the background paper with the French Lattice Die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I stamped my sentiment and then cut it out with the Oval Classic Stacker die and matted with the XM7 Oval Die.

I ran a layered strip of ribbon using Shocking Pink Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and Pink and Green Confetti Dot Grosgrain Ribbon under the sentiment panel.  I embellished under the sentiment with a variety of Mulberry Flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  There is a wide variety of offerings and you can always find the perfect flower for any project!

 My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Shocking Pink and Sherbet Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

You Make the World a Better Place

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing a pretty all-occasion card made with lots of my favorite dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and pretty ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Remember when I said I would try to get past my new Distress Ink obsession?  Well, I lied!  You better buckle up because I just got the entire set of Distress Oxide inks and I have not even begun to play with them!

I created an open card front using the Quatrefoil A2 Frame from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I used the A2 Retangle Classic die to cut the large opening on the card front and also created a bit of a frame of the same size for the back.  I sandwiched the Quatrefoil cut in white in between the card front and the frame backing to hold it in place.

I created a rectangle for the sentiment panel using some Distress Ink paper I made measuring 2-3/4″ x 4 which covers enough of the front to allow you to put a message on the inside of the card without it showing though.  The sentiment was added to that with a ribbon banner in between.

I lined the inside of the card with the same Distress Ink paper for uniformity when the card is closed.

My tea roses were made with a mix of the Distress Ink Paper and solid dark purple cardstock for some interest.  The layers were cut and the petals were shaped with a foam pad and stylus before assembling.  They were attached to the card below the sentiment.

 My card was topped off with a pretty bi-color double-loop bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using Regal Purple and Rose Bloom Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Spring and/or Easter Challenge

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

I had some glittery fun with this card which is very unlike me!  I’m not a fan of messy, but this is a fun technique to try.

I applied Stick It adhesive to the front side of my white cardstock and then I die cut my bunnies and Easter eggs.  Once cut, I removed the adhesive backing on each piece and applied Art Glitter Microfine Transparent Glitter in #711 Winter White.  I made sure to press the glitter on really well and shook off the excess.  Then I colored all the pieces with Copic Markers.  I then used a foam pad and stylus to gently shape the pieces for a bit of dimension.  I used foam tape to adhere the pieces to my card.

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
B527 Bunnies
E669 Bird Nest & Eggs
B126 Grass Border
DL306 Dutch Daisy Oval Doily
L-7 Oval Classic
XL-7 Oval Classic Lge Nesting Die

My beautiful bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using 5/8″ Wisteria Diamond Satin Ribbon and 5/8″ Rose Bloom Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also have a piece of 3/8″ Wildflower Grosgrain Ribbon running across the middle of the card.
