Buzzing Bees, Blooming Flowers and Beautiful Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Here's a honey of a card to get your weekend started right!  I was first introduced to 5/8" Tan Satin Ribbon with  Grograin Edge in the May Ribbon Club Assortment.  Mark me down as a fan!  This great neutral shade seems to pick up on whatever colors you use it with, and it ties gorgeous bows!   I love the way it took on a honey tone in this bee themed card.

It also looks amazing when paired up with Natural Burlap String, another of my "go to" textiles. 

I've used my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool to create some tiny burlap bows beneath these cute wooden buttons, too.

Inside the card, I've create a couple of pockets and filled them with all sorts of goodies.

Pink Baker's Twine makes a great tag topper and picks up on the pink shades in the floral designer papers. 

I also stitched up a little bookmark to tuck into the card.  This is topped with Topaz and Light Silver Diamond Grosgrain Ribbon,  I've attached a pretty key with Metallic Iridescent String, too. 

Do you ever use ribbon on the insides of your cards?  I think it adds a lovely surprise. 

I hope I've shared some tips and ideas that you can use in your next crafty adventure.  Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet Ribbons & Flower Card By Cheryl

 Hello Crafty Friends , hope you all are doing well! Today I have a super sweet card I made using Really Reasonable Ribbons Beautiful Flowers & Ribbons, and also their adhesive's  too. Absolutely LOVE all their ribbons and flowers.

 On my card today I started by picking this super darling design paper from my stash, I've had this design paper forever and lately trying to use some of the single sheets I have. I did up 3 layers and added my sewing using the sewing machine. Next I cut out one of the doilys from My Makers Movement, and then used the darling Lemonade Stand & Stamps also from Makers Movement. it was colored with copics, added stickles to the top, and then added some branches . Love how it all works together.

I chose to use the Beautiful RRR Chrysanthemums in white from the Mixed Purple pack, and then the pink from the Mixed Pastel 20mm open Roses, and the yellow Rose Buds is from the Mixed White Pack. Next I hot glued them to the Bows I had created using the Beautiful Bold Satin /W Grosgrain Edge Pearl Pink another Favorite of mine, and then the Satin Swiss Dots Lemon Ribbon. Both were done into bows and hot glued to my card.

Bold Satin with Grosgrain Edge Pearl Pink 5/8"

Having FUN With Really Reasonable Ribbon

Welcome by, everyone.  I hope you're having a great week, staying safe and healthy, enjoying family, and of course...and finding time to create lovely things.  The card I'm sharing with you today was created using several of my favorite products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I just love making things with their lovely products, and I'm always able to find the perfect match for everything I'm making.  Really Reasonable Ribbon really has it ALL.
I started with a white cardstock base and added two patterned papers which are both from Crate Paper.  The piece at the bottom was a scrap of painted paper I had on my craft table.  I just sorta pieced things together to create my base.  The stamped sentiment is from Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.
The bow began with some Bay Leaf Seam Binding, and some bundled and knotted Solid Soft Pink Baker's Twine.  I tucked in several beautiful Double Head Stamens, and topped the bow with a Pale Green Open Rose, a Pale Pink Open Rose and a White Open Rose.  I sprinkled just a bit of glitter on the flowers.  And finally, I hung a metal heart from the bow using a Pear-Shaped Safety Pin.  I assure you that Really Reasonable Ribbon has all the trims and touches you're looking for, and that you will love everything you find there.  Thanks SO much for stopping by today.

Delicious summer mix from strawberries, pomegranates to Kiwifruit you have it all! As we are on the endangered species list (e.g., old folks) we thought it prudent to stay home and do all the things we never seem to have time to do. We are planting a container garden to view from kitchen and my husband bought a bike and is doing 20-30 miles each trip! I am catching up on videos and enjoying looking at lovely creations talented artist are doing. Fun! No moping allowed here.

Now if you didn't win, don't worry!! We will be 'hopping' each month so you'll have another chance to win soon! We hope you stop by and visit our blog often.

Creating a Patriotic Greeting with Not One, But TWO Shakers by Cherry Nelson

Hello my paper peeps!  Cherry here today to share a  Patriotic greeting .  I reallllly do NOT think I will ever tire of making shaker cards.  So adding two shakers instead of one to a card was just a natural inclination.  I die cut some postage stamps from chipboard and embossed them.  Next up was adhering some recycled  acetate along with foam strips. I then went to town filling these little cuties with sequins and die cut  mini stars.  

I used some paper scraps that were not quite big enough so I cut strips of navy cardstock and used them to border each pattern paper.  I thought it was kinda of a cool idea too because it reminds me of the stripes on our beloved flag.  In keeping with the patriotic air mail theme, I used Taffeta ribbon in red, white, and blue.  This is my favorite ribbon for bows.  Soft enough to loop but stiff enough to keep its shape.  

I embellished the rest of the card using lots of fun mail themed goodies.  A mini envelope, die cut stars, flourishes, die cuts, and a handmade Foamirian flower and leaves that I have become obsessed lately with making.  I used stamens from the RRR website for my centers. 

Well that is it for me!  Hope you enjoyed. 

XOXO, Cherry
