Saddle Up! Masculine All Occasion Card

Hello, Friends!  Have you been enjoying the March Ribbon Club Assortment as much as I have?  I love that the Blue and Brown Assortment of ribbons is so versatile.  Today, I'm using one of the Tan Select Swiss Dots Grosgrain w/Turftan Brown Dots on this masculine "Saddle Up!" card.

Using ribbon on a masculine card can be challenging, but this Tan Grosgrain Ribbon is the perfect accent!  I used my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool to tie that stylish double loop bow beside the focal image.  Then I topped it with some Natural Burlap String.

I also attached a length of this same ribbon along the top edge of both banner flags, then topped it with a vintage button.  It's easy to attach ribbon with Scor-Tape, and it adds lovely texture to any project.

Here's a peek at the inside of the card.  I added a gift card pocket, then tucked in a miniature chocolate treat.  I'm pretty sure that even cowboys love chocolate!

This would be a great card to make Dad...and Father's Day will be here before we know it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Take Flight Card with Ribbon & Trim

Hi friends! Linsey here today sharing a nice card I made for any occasion. It features a simple design and a fun way to use up some of those shorter strips of ribbon and trim you have stashed away because they are just too pretty to toss. I hope you like it! :)
As you can see, I used two coordinating pieces of patterned paper and divided them with a strip of Delicate Stitched Satin Black ribbon. Then I layered a piece of patterned vellum over the top portion of the pink gingham paper and divided the two with a strip of May Arts Crochet Lace. This is a really easy and fast way to make a unique card base in which to build on. I stamped the sentiment as close to center-middle as possible, then completed the card with 3 miniature felt butterflies fluttering around and a few sparkly sequins and enamel dots.
Thank you for stopping by and letting me share my card inspiration with you today! Until next time, happy crafting!

Happy Hellos Card

Hello crafty friends and Happy Friday to you all!
Today's Sweet Happy Hellos Kitty card was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon along with the beautiful flowers that RRR carries. Love all the different flowers mixed on my card for today. I had fun creating this sweet kitty card with the 3 layers and the bows.

On my card I chose to use the sweetheart blossoms, mini sweetheart blossoms, rose bud in pink, and the carnation flower. I love the mix of colors.  Sometimes it's hard to choose which ones to use, but this time I just went for it....heheehe

The bows were made using the Light Coral Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and then I also used the 3-D foam squares, and Scotch Refill ATG tape to put my card and layers together.

The dies are all from Cheery Lynn, and I love using these!
The stamp is SU!, it's a oldie but goody.....hehehee

And lastly I added some sewing to each layer.

A Perfect Day Shaker Tag Magnet

Hello there friends and happy Thursday to all of you! Today I'm not sharing a card. No really. I actually made a magnet. Well I didn't make the magnet...I just glued stuff to it. And by stuff I mean a lot of stuff...and a shaker.
Isn't this the sweetest collection? It's Miss Betty and I love it so much! Also the inside is a shaker so that's more funner.

 I added some pretty vintagy lace to the bottom of the tag for an extra grandma chic touch.

The perfect chevron bow to coordinate with the die cut flowers.
The back has a magnet so this sweet little tag can be used on the fridge to hang up the coupons and school pics and other important necessities.
Really Reasonable  Ribbon~ Chevron Striped Twill in Pink, Ivory Burlap String, Arianna Natural Crochet Lace.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day :  ) G

My daughter and the girl that share an apartment took me to Branson MO where we shopped celebrated my daughters birthday and saw a show. The next first would be a cruise my girlfriend won a cruise for 2 and asked me to go with her. I had a blast can't wait to go again.

Blessed Beyond Measure Ribbon Necklace

Adding a pretty ribbon and lace chain to your favorite pendent is easy using Really Reasonable Ribbons.  This soldered pendent is near and dear to me because the sweet girl is my mom as a child.  
 I combined the Tan Leather Seam Binding and the Debra Natural Crochet Lace to form the chain of the necklace. 
I choose the cream tones, but why not grab a few ribbon and lace choices and mix and match with your outfit?  Every time I wear this necklace, I am reminded that I am blessed beyond measure that the Mom God blessed me with.

Wishing you a creative day, dear friends.
