Cheery Lynn Designs Lace Themed Challenge

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Lace themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog.  I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.
9-1-16-1My card today features the beautiful Daisy Lace Frame and I really wanted to make it ‘POP’.  I cut it out of a piece of marbled paper I made many years ago.  I kept the card really simple because I didn’t want to cover up any more of the lovely lace background.

9-1-16-3My beautiful bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using Tropic and Turquoise Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.  I also ran a piece of Theresa White Crochet Lace across the middle under the sentiment panel.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll head on over to the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog and play along with our challenge for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Cheery Lynn Designs Store.

New Faux Bow Tutorial with the Zutter Bow-it-All V3.0

Hi friends.  Today I have a new faux bow tutorial to share.  This bow is easy and it’s perfect for your autumn projects because it has a bit of a rustic-type feel with the burlap string used to tie the center.  Be sure to stop by Really Reasonable Ribbon and take a look at all the wonderful Fun 4 Fall ribbon styles.
8-31-16-1The brown ribbon I used to create this bow is 5/8″ Turftan Brown Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and it’s one of the styles included in the August Ribbon Club Assortment.
August2016lgeThis Autumn themed assortment contains 9 ribbon styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed mix of ribbons.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles!

My harvest themed card was made with dies from Cheery Lynn designs.  I also love adding mulberry paper to my cards for a soft and wispy layer and the natural mulberry paper on this card works wonderfully.

The bow was created with 5/8″ Turftan Brown Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and tied in the Middle with Natural Burlap String.
