Happy Anniversary Card

Hello ribbon lovers.  Bonnie here with you today with an anniversary card I created using pretty ribbon, mulberry flowers and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I started off with some Distress Ink paper I made using the color Stormy Sky for a nice mottled background paper.  I then selected the digital sentiment from the Happy Greetings set from Graciellie Design.  I reshaped the digital sentiment to perfectly fit in my oval die and printed it out.  I also used the Lattice 2 die from Cheery Lynn Designs to layer over the bottom 2/3 of my card for added interest.
I ran a piece of 5/8″ Silver Glitz Ribbon topped with 3/8″ Mixed Blue Confetti Dots Grosgrain Ribbon across the middle of the card to cover the top of the lattice die.  I added the sentiment over the ribbon and then added three Royal Blue 20mm Open Roses under the sentiment.
My card was topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Capri Blue and Royal Blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.  The center of the bow is adorned with a pretty Heart Shaped Pearl Embellishment.

Boo! Halloween Card

Hi everyone.  Today I’m sharing a really fun and spooky Halloween card created with the incredible Ultimate Halloween 5 piece die set from Cheery Lynn Designs and fun ribbons from the September Halloween themed Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

My orange background, pumpkin die cuts and the dark night sky background were all made using Distress Ink papers that I created.
The die cuts are very straightforward.  I simply cut them in the colors shown using cardstock with Stick It adhesive on the back.  For the pumpkins and tree, I added the colors that you see for the eyes, nose and mouth.  I added the cat in black on the tree as well.
I added some grass using the Grass Border 2 die and placed the tree in front of it and I tucked the pumpkins behind it to create some depth.

The details on the dies add so much character to the pieces.

My card is topped off with a shabby bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using Black Bold Plaid Check Ribbon from the September Halloween themed Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You can also see two more ribbons from this assortment running across the center of the card under the main panel.  I topped the bow off with a wiggle eye.

Cheery Lynn Designs Giving Thanks Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs Giving Thanks Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Cherry’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.

As a Thank You to our wonderful customers, Cheery Lynn Designs is offering a 15% discount on all dies and supplies this week through 9/22/17.  This is the PERFECT time to stock up for your winter holiday needs.

I had some pretty autumn color Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink papers left from what I made earlier in the month and used some of them up today.  It’s easy to see what I did by looking at my card.  Lots of layers like I usually do.  I cut the Fall Leaf Doily out with one of my Distress Ink papers and layered it on cream cardstock using the angel wing die that comes in the set.  So easy!  I then cut the pumpkin trio in an orange Distress Ink paper and also in green and brown and I pieced the leaves, vines and stems on top of that.  I shaped this piece for a little dimension and adhered it with some foam squares.

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 tool using ribbon from the August Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This assortment is available through the end of September.  In the center of the bow I added a 16mm Antique Bronze Flower Embellishment.
