Trick or Treat Halloween Card with Cheery Lynn Designs

I’m still having fun playing with the fabulous ribbons from the September Ribbon Club assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I’m totally in love with the Black Houndstooth Plaid Ribbon.  Isn’t it fabby?

I made a fun Halloween themed card with lots of my favorite dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and embellished with a couple of the styles from the assortment.  The poofy double bow was made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 and it’s just a basic double bow.  You can view a video tutorial for a basic bow made on the Bow-it-All Tool HERE.

My gorgeous bow was created with a couple of ribbon styles from the Really Reasonable Ribbon ‘Crazy for Christmas’ October Ribbon Club Assortment.  This assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon or trim.  Each month you receive a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.  JOIN TODAY!  Gift subscriptions are available as well.

I love mulberry paper and I have been hoarding it since the mid-1990’s!  It seems to have gone out of favor with card makers, but I still use it all the time and I always get questions about what it is, how did I get the fuzzy edges, etc.  So, I’ve created a video to show you just how I use it.

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog
This time we have a Halloween Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.
I used a couple of ribbon styles from the Really Reasonable Ribbon September Ribbon Club assortment on my card.  It’s such a fun mix.  It’s still available for a very limited time!
I found the fun sentiment in a set from DigiTreat on Etsy.  I think it’s adorable.  The beautiful flower was made with the Shasta Daisy die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  Watch for a tutorial for this flower soon!
I made a shabby bow for me card using my Bow-it-All V2.0.  You can view a video tutorial on how to create this bow HERE.
