This card was started for our current RRR 'Show me the Green & Ribbon' Challenge theme, but due to circumstances beyond my control, it was not done it time. (Good thing I'm the boss, right? - hahaha)
You can still join in the challenge until March 12th by clicking HERE.
What were my circumstances you ask?
Well, we are doing a kitchen remodel and we are doing the vast majority of the work ourselves. What a disaster! I do NOT recommend this for the faint-hearted. It's a lot like camping in your own home while it's going on...........
We are now basically down to no kitchen at all. NOT FUN! It will be great when it's done though!!
So, this fun card is made using a great collage sheet from My Artistic Adventures and they are really inexpensive and great to have on hand when you need to whip up a quick card. There are loads of different images on this sheet so you can do a variety of projects with the purchase of just one sheet.
I layered three little images over a embossed kraft cardstock background, added a layered strip of 1/8" Golden Brown Grosgrain over a strip of 3/8" Hunter Grosgrain and wrapped it around the lower part of the card. It's embellished with a flower shaped buckle and topped with a 15mm Light Mocha Open Rose.
Happy Sunday! I wanted to share a super cute card today with you all. I kept everything very minimal and love how the Silver and Blue Topaz Diagonal Striped Ribbon frames the focal point perfectly. It really helps the project to stand out!
To make it more fun, I adhered the main layer diagonally. I thought it would go well with the ribbon since the stripes are diagonal as well. I took out this cute sheep stamp set and lightly water-colored to keep everything soft.
Most of the card is blue-grayish so I added couple of yellow enamel dots to add some brightness to the card.
Hello there Paper Peeps.....I'm dropping in to share a mini album I created with lots of fabulous trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon and By the Sea Paper from Graphic 45. It also has pics of a chubby bald happy baby.....who is going to be 15 this week. So as you can image, I've had the pictures awhile waiting for just the right paper and trim : )
There's some tropical themed flowers, painted and inked chipboard embellishments, dimensional resin seashells, and trimmed elements from the By The Sea paper.
As you can see...I've layered elebenty hundred patterns....but all nicely separated by navy cardstock. I wanted to add extra tags for pics and journaling....so I created smaller pocket pages. I am loving the stamp banner held with Tim Holtz metal clips.
These paper rosettes make the book a little bulky so I used really large binder rings.
As promised, lots of pics of happy chubby bald baby : )
I added tags on the edges of the pages quite easily by attaching them between the paper layers. Isn't that giant blue tropical fish cut out fabulous???? Shhhh don't tell...it's hiding a scratch on the picture.
I covered chipboard to make the base for the book....to support the weight of all the heavy embellishments. This is truly a chunky album!
I was lucky to have some nautical resin bits and pieces like this ships wheel....I think they make great details. I also used many trimmed pieces to bring the paper patterns onto the pictures.
Okay...I know that was a lot of pictures.....but I had so much fun reminiscing about our fun trip....that I made the book with lots of pages.
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
Hello everyone. Cheryl here today with a purse insert I designed using some of Really Reasonable Ribbons' Lace, Silk, and Jumbo Leaves.
I figured out a pattern I wanted and tried to combine some of my old laces with Really Reasonable Ribbon Lace to create a pretty purse for summertime. I love the way it turned out, and enjoyed making this design using ribbon and lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I made the flowers for the center out of the Silk that Bonnie carries, and let me tell you, its absolutely beautiful silk ribbon. Very easy to work with too! I then added some vintage flowers, and the Jumbo Leaves in moss green that can be found at the Really Reasonable Ribbon store here. Lastly I added a silk bow to the top of my purse! Can't wait to use this for summertime!!
Thank you for looking and have a super wonderful day!
Holy Dyna I added a lot of layers here lol.....but it was so fun to make. Pop dots really help to add extra dimension and Stickles are great for detailing. I think I've counted 19 layers here...that may be a personal record lol.
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : )G
