Birthday Wishes Card

Hey ribbon lovers.  Today I have a pretty birthday card to share with you featuring some bright colors and pretty ribbon and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I love these bright colors for summer.  I made my background with Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks.  I used a stencil on the top and the bottom is just sponged and spritzed inks.

I didn’t have a lot of time to make flowers this time and this Indie Bouquet  die set from Cheery Lynn Designs has easy ‘cut and go’ flowers.  The foliage is from the Floral Bouquet Kit Die Set.  I adhered yellow 10mm Resin Pieces to the center of my flowers.

I stamped my sentiment and then added an orange layer and some white mulberry paper.  I wrapped a layered piece of ribbon consisting of 5/8″ apple green Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and 3/8″ Citrus Chevron Grosgrain Ribbon across the middle of my card securing in the back.  I then adhered the sentiment oval on top of that ribbon band.
My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Daffodil and Tangerine Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I added an 8mm White Half Pearl to the center of my bow.

Happy Mother’s Day

[For the Jo’s Scrap Shack Blog Hop, please click HERE.]

Hi friends.  Mother’s Day in the US is only a couple weeks away, so I’m sharing a pretty card that would make any Mom smile.  It features some of my favorite dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and gorgeous ribbon and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I created my background paper with Distress Oxide inks.  I cut the Lattice 2 die on Stick It Adhesive backed white cardstock and adhered it to the top third of the card.  Under that I added the Sweetheart edger lace and I topped it with some 3/8″ Delphinium Double-faced Satin Ribbon to hide the seam where it all joins.

I printed my digital sentiment and cut it using the Oval dies and then matted using more of the oval dies.  I created some additional layers and it’s then all assembled on a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card base.

My pretty roses were made with the tea rose dies in small and medium.  I used alternating layers of dark purple cardstock and leftover Distress Oxide background paper.  I added some interest by stamping the petal layers with an old script background stamp.  I shaped the petals with a stylus and foam pad before assembling the flowers.  Once done they were added to my card under the sentiment panel.

My card was finished off with a pretty bi-color bow made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Delphinium and Turquoise Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I topped the bow off with a pretty 14mm White flower pearl embellishment.  I’ve also added three purple 10mm Round Flatback Resin pieces to the bottom of the card.

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.
