Everyday is a Blessing Birthday Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Kathy here with a shabbylicious birthday card all done up in pink, gold and brown.


Pink and brown is one of my all time favorite color combinations, and I super love it when combined with Peony Satin Ribbons!  This bodacious bow cluster has a triple loop  Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon base topped with a double loop Crosshatch on Peony Satin bow and a pretty posie.  

Just like the words to the song, "I get by with a little help from my friends," I get by with a little help from my fabulous Zutter-Bow-it-All Tool.  If you struggle to tie big poufy bows like this, then you really need to add it to your crafty wish list.  Once you get the tool, take a little time to watch the "Queen of Bows" (aka Bonnie Garby) tie perfect bows on her YouTube Channel.  That is how I learned, and trust me, if I can do it, anyone can!

Here's the YouTube link to get you started on your very own bow making adventure:


Finally, here's a peek at the inside of this pretty in pink card made with Simple Stories Vintage Blessings paper collection.


Wishing you beautiful bows...

Cheerio,
kathy

To do this is really easy and all you need to do is go to Customize > Settings > Comments > then scroll down to where it says comment moderation and select always (this won't stop anybody leaving you a comment but they won't show on your blog until you approve them). Then scroll down to show word verification for comments? and select No.
We love to visit your blogs and leave comments on all the terrific entries, but the word verification really slows us down. :o)

We Make a Great Pear

Hello crafty friends, and Happy Thursday to you all! Today I have a fun and simple card I designed using the  Really Reasonable Ribbon August Autumn Harvest Ribbon Assortment, along with a few embellishments.

On my card I chose to make my a bow using three of the ribbons in Augusts Ribbon Club Assortment. I also used the same ribbons for the banners in the left hand corner. The design papers and stamps I ended up using are all from Club Scraps September Orchard Kit. The flowers I used were already cut, and colored, I just had to put them together for my card.  The centers have a 10mm pearl embellishments. The leaves were already done, so I just had to add them. This made for a fast card, as I didn't end up doing any sewing on this one, kinda shocking....hehehehe.

The sentiment was stamped using black ink, and then I distressed around the oval using an orange and light brown. The pear was stamped 2 times and cut out once.  I colored it using Copic markers.

The yellow layer was just distressed using scissors and ink,

The big bow was made using the Tangerine Taffeta , autumn leaves grosgrain, and green satin, along with a sweet crystal embellishment.

All layers were put together using Scor-Tape and foam squares from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:
White flat back pearls 10mm
Mixed colored rhinestone flower
Scor-Tape
3-D thin foam tabs
Ribbons-Assortment , or Green checkerboard Satin, Random Autumn Leaves Grosgrain , Tangerine Taffeta Ribbon

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

Hugs to all,
Cheryl
