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.

I hope you’ll head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and play along with our challenge.  Any type of project is welcome.

Fun and Spooky Halloween Subway Art Card and Shabby Bow Video Tutorial

Hi friends.  Can you believe it’s almost Autumn?  Time flies, but this is my very favorite time of the year.  I love the cool, crisp air, the beautiful colors of Autumn and getting back to crafting more often.

Really Reasonable Ribbon has a HUGE selection of fun ribbon styles for Halloween and Autumn.  In addition to the August and September Ribbon Club assortments, check out the Fun 4 Fall and Halloween sections to see the entire selection.

On my card today I layered a base of Black Netting Trim which I trimmed down to a width of 1″.  Next is a layer of Apple Green Checkerboard Satin and it’s topped off with Halloween Chevron Stripes Grosgrain.  My sentiment is layered over this ribbon stack.
I created the fun shabby bow on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  I made a triple-loop bow with Black Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and clipped the loops and frayed the ends.  To see how I created this bow, please watch the video below.

Autumn Subway Art Card

I love me some autumn colors.  Autumn is my favorite season and this month we have a great Autumn Days themed Ribbon Club assortment at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

If you love Autumn colors, this assortment is for you.  JOIN TODAY and you will begin with this Autumn themes assortment which contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim. What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.
I used two of the ribbon selections on my card.  I ran a layered ribbon strip diagonally across the card panel and I created a beautiful small double-loop bow from the kiwi Diamond Satin Ribbon using my Bow-it-All V2.0.  If you want to see how easy it is to work with single-faced and printed ribbons on your Bow-it-All, please visit my YouTube Channel HERE.
Sometimes a small, low-key bow is all your card needs.  It’s just not finished without a bow…
