Cheery Lynn Designs Let’s Go Retro New Release Blog Hop

 
Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs Let’s Go Retro New Release Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Lisa’s Blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.  Be sure to comment on the post on the Cheery Lynn blog answering the questions for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree to pick up some of the fun new dies.

This camper set is just too cute and along with making a fun card, it would be great on a vacation layout along with some camping photos.  I used the Aspen Forest background die as well to create some scenery in the background.

I created the paper for my aspen forest with Distress Inks.  I ripped some paper to create the mountains and adhered it to the base.  Next I adhered the trees.  Then I cut the camper in a couple of color and fussy cut the different colored parts and glued them on.  I then added the dark grass, the camper and then the strip of lighter colored grass.

My card was finished off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using ribbon from the April Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Really Reasonable Ribbon April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon April 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.

This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a pretty beach themed mix of blues and browns.

The April Ribbon Club Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and crochet lace.  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.
 

This month I create a pretty floral all-occasion card using some pretty dies from Cheery Lynn Design along with some of the ribbons from the April Ribbon Club Assortment.  I love the bold look of this color combination.
I created by background by cutting the lattice die out of blue cardstock and layering it on a cream cardstock background.  I then ran a piece of brown ribbon across the center of the card, added the base of the sentiment frame, layered the tan swiss dots ribbon on that and then added the sentiment panel.Next I pulled out my very favorite flower die set – the Floral Bouquet Kit, and cut the flower and foliage pieces.  I shaped them using a foam pad and stylus, assembled and added white half pearls for the centers.  I then arranged the floral cluster below the sentiment.

 

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the April Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also ran two ribbons from the assortment across the center of the card behind the sentiment.
