Really Reasonable Ribbon November Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Cheryl’s blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.  Be sure to comment along the way and on the RRR blog post for a chance to win a November Ribbon Club Assortment.
 

This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a beautiful mix of Country Holiday themed ribbon.

JOIN TODAY!

The November Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed ribbon collection.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

Today I went for a pink and purple holiday color palette.  I really do love these colors for Christmas cards.  Don’t you?  They are also great for creating generic holiday cards and winter themed cards.
My lovely digital sentiment is from the Winter Blessing Digital Stamp Set from Graciellie Design.
I just love digital stamps as I can resize them  and even reshape them a bit if necessary to fit in to any die that I want to use.  This makes the stamps very versatile and easy to use.

I used a variety of different colors and styles of mulberry paper roses and some pink Spiral Stamens to embellish below my sentiment.
 My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the 5/8″ ribbon styles from the November Ribbon Club Assortment.  The center of the bow is adorned with a 15mm Open Rose.

Happy Birthday Card for Someone Special

Hello friends.  Today I’m sharing a pretty birthday card that I created for my Mom featuring lots of beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.

I find that birthday cards are the most needed cards and no matter how many I make, I always seem to be behind.  This Birthday Wishes Circle Sentiment is a great addition to your die collection and it can be used over and over in different settings without looking like you are always using the same die.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
B783 Birthday Wishes Circle

My Tea Roses were created by alternating layers of solid cardstock with Distress Ink paper.  I just love two tone roses.  I shaped the petals before layering them for a realistic rose look.

I topped my card off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Rose Bloom and Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The bow was topped off with a pretty Heart Shaped Pearl Embellishment also from RRR.

I also ran a piece of Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon topped with Tutti Frutti Chevron Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon across the center of the card under the sentiment.

This month there is a special deal where you can begin your assortment with the October and November combination pack for a special low price.  You can also select to begin with just the November collection.

I printed the digital paper I selected and used it for my background paper.  I then sized the sentiment to fit the oval die I wanted to use.  This is what I LOVE about digital stamps.  I can make them fit whatever die I select.

My poinsettia flower was created using some Distress Ink paper I had left from another project and the die I used is the Poinsettia Strip from Cheery Lynn Designs.  It coordinates wonderfully with the digital paper.  The center of the flower was made with Gold Double Head Stamens.

My beautiful bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the 5/8″ printed ribbons from the October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow is adorned with a 14mm Flower Shaped Rhinestone.
