Hope you had a lovely Easter...we did! I have a new creation for you made for Really Reasonable Ribbon. Mother's Day isn't far off ...and everything you do for Mom should be special. Including the package! I found these larger pillow boxes and decided to deck them out with some fab goodies and trims. I have a step by step here of my process.
4) From here, grab more of your cherry twine and wrap it around your spool a bunch and hot glue the spool to the middle of your crochet bow...add your mini "just for you" tag and your sweet wild orchid sweetheart blossoms nestled in the middle.
5) Almost done...add your diecut gingham square and red banner piece layering on each other on your tag and top with a fun vintage style button.
Done, done, and done! The paper I used is from an Etsy store and the sweet sewing hand stitched tag is a Crafty Secrets digital image.
Perfect to add some of Mom's fave candy or a fun jewelry piece for her. I think any Mom would feel a little extra special with a gift like this!
Hello, all you fabulous ribbon loving people! Today's cards are all sunshine, ribbon and flowers thanks to the totally inspiring Really Reasonable Ribbon April Ribbon Club Assortment. Take a peeky at these sumptuous ribbons:
This is the perfect Spring ribbon collection. It makes me think of bright sunshiny days and April showers and blooming flowers. And that served as the inspiration for this card made with Graphic 45 A Place in time and French Country.
I think most of us are more than ready to get out and dig in the dirt, as opposed to digging in the snow!
I used Distress Embossing powder to add "dirt" to Modern Priscilla's tools.
And here's the inside of this fun card with more of that fabby Metal Gray Swiss Dot ribbon.
Thanks for stopping in today. I hope you were inspired to get your craft on with these gorgeous ribbons! Creating with the April Ribbon Club Assortment makes me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers!
First I want to thank our retiring design team members. We will miss them. Kathy, Nicole and Heather will be leaving us at the end of October although you will see Heather pop in once in a while. They did a fantastic job and gave us tons of great ideas and inspiration. I encourage you all to visit their blogs and become a follower so you can continue to be inspired by their fantastic work.
I also want to thank everyone who applied for our new design team positions. There were so many awesome entries that it was very hard to select just a couple new people. You'll find some familiar faces below and several brand new ones too.
So without further delay, please meet our new Really Reasonable Ribbon Design Team.
Happy Easter, everyone! Nicole P. here and I hope you are having a great time with your family or your loved ones. Since I like to plan things ahead, I thought sharing a Mother's Day card today would be perfect so you can get inspired for the next holiday that's coming up soon. Today's card feature the soft, pretty, amazing Pink Wrinkled Ribbon.
Before I talk about the ribbon, I will share a technique I used on this card. You see those roses that are colored with pinks and greens? I used Copic markers to color the images, but, to create a much softer and part "water-color" look, I only filled in random parts of the images. I call this a "Selective Copic Coloring" which I came up with couple months ago. I was experimenting with it and fell in LOVE with the results.
Let's talk about this adorable ribbon. Wrinkled ribbons can be a perfect accent for your projects, when you want to give a bit more texture or interest. Using a nice, flat ribbon can give you clean, finished look where wrinkled ribbon can give you more of the soft, vintage look. I actually just finished "collecting" the wrinkled ribbon collection that Bonnie carries - they are super affordable and you can get lots of them for your buck!
Wrinkled Ribbons are light-weight but super easy to tie bows. Once you set it, it is good to go! Try using the wrinkled ribbon and see how you like it. Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you have a Happy Easter!
Hi Everyone! Jenn here from Jax Bean Stalks. Well, a few of you were asking "how do you make those ribbon flowers?". You ask and you shall receive! This is the show all video of how to make ribbon flowers as seen on my card from the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog hop, that just took place on the 13th. Hope you like the tutorial and will try to make these with some of the beautiful RRR soon!
Designer Dries Clear Glue & Fine tip applicator Step 1 You will need to cut your card to a 5 inch square base. You will need to use the second card base to cut a 5 inch square, which you will add to the other card base. This will create your easel card. So you will fold up the top flap of your card base. Then you will glue the 5 inch square base (line it up with the top) so that it will line up with the bottom when closed. Please refer to photo below.
Step 2 Cut 2.... 4.75 inch square pieces of pink cardstock and your collage sheet pieces. I distressed the edges of my pieces and inked them with Rangers Frayed Burlap distress ink. I glued the ledger sheet to the pink card stock. The images on the collage sheet are already to size.
Step 3 I inked the doily with Frayed Burlap too. I then glued down the focal image to the doily. I added a row of Juliet lace and I also used a craft knife to cut the doily on both sides of the image. I threaded my seam binding through these openings.
I glued the seam binding down on the back of the doily. I also cut the large foam tabs in half, and placed them around the edges of the back of one of my card stock pieces. Leaving the top open so that I could slide a tag in.
I also added some cotton candy baker's twine to the piece. I glued the doily down to the card base.
I used the Bow it All tool to create a bow which I added to my card. I also added some foam tabs to my "Mother" text box.
I added the other pink base inside of my card.
I took the piece that I cut off of my card stock base (when I cut it down to 5 inches). I left it the same height, but cut the width down to 4.5 inches. I inked another doily, and glued it to my piece and trimmed off most of it.
I trimmed off the excess cardstock so that my piece looks just like a doily. I centered it horizontally and placed it as close to the bottom of the card as possible.
I added some of the ivory mulberry roses to the upper left corner of my focal piece and a button tied with cotton candy baker's twine to the right of my seam binding bow. You can see where I tucked in a tag in the back.
I put a foam tab on the upper part of a button, and I am placing it on my tag so that the top of the card will fit under it.
I added some more seam binding to the top of the tag. I also tucked in a piece of Juliet lace, and added another mulberry rose.
On the inside I added another tiny seambinding bow, and mulberry rose. I added my "Mother" text box too.
I used my Art Glitter Glue and Fine Tip applicator to add glue to my doily and around the circle of my focal image.
I added Gingerbread glitter to the doily and tag edges. I have also added Just Peachy glitter to the focal image.
Here is a look at the finished card closed.
A look at it open
I also have a simpler card that I created using the same images from my collage sheet.
Today I am also sharing a video tutorial that I did for a Mother's Day Canvas that I have made using the same Digital Collage Sheet. I did the video back on March 25th and have been waiting to post it for what seems like forever...lol. I believe that has got to be the longest I have been able to go..with out immediately posting a post...lol. Normally I am last minute with my projects. Kind of like my card and tutorial that I did for today's post :0)
Here is the video tutorial below.
I hope I have left you with lots of inspiration today!!
