World's Spookiest Halloween...



Hello Jax Bean Stalks friends and followers!  It is hop time again with Really Reasonable Ribbon!  So excited to showcase beautiful September Ribbon Club!!!
If you are hopping with us today, you should have arrived from Cherry's Blog.



Check out the September Ribbon Club ribbons.  I am a huge fan of Halloween.  At my house we always have a party and Trick-O-Treat as a group while it is still light...you know for the littler ones.  This year might be the transition year where my little kid is bigger....booooooo!!!!


This fun tag is not only for RRR, but it is also for Spectrum Noir.  I have used a alcohol ink watercoloring technique featuring the OR colors.  The shading from dark to light is OR3, OR2, OR1.  It is a super fun technique that I will be videoing and and posting sometime next week.  So keep an eye out for this technique here on my blog and also on the SN blog too!







Thank so much for stopping in today.  Enjoy the rest of the hop!  You are now off to your next stop, the 



Supplies:
Really Reasonable Ribbon-September Ribbon Club Assortment

A Melon Thanks

Hello Jax Bean Stalks friends and followers!  Today I have a fun end of summer card.  Here in Colorado the watermelon is just about over....but still good.  So here is to the end of summer and oh how I will miss the watermelons and summer!  

My card today is colored with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.  The watermelon stamps are colored with CR4, CR5, CR6, CR7, LG4, LG5.  The bright reds are super easy to shade and blend compared to other brands of alcohol markers.  The LG family of colors are a nice pop of green.  The LG4 and LG5 are a perfect balance of light and dark green.  You could even use this combo achieve a kiwi or lime color,

The ribbon on my card is a combinations of three Really Reasonable Ribbon ribbons.  The main ribbon I used is the Sheer Kiwi Watermelon.  It is super sheer and the two tone coloring is just amazing and beautiful!  Behind this super sheer ribbon is the 1/8" diagonal striped ribbon in black.  This ribbon is fun to make multiple loops and fan them out in front or behind an accent ribbon.  In my bow I put this ribbon in the middle and made it a bit wider than the other two.  Finally in the back of my bow, as a base, I used the Black Organza Ribbon.  It comes on a spool!  This is a great ribbon to keep on hand for a base ribbon when making multi-layer bows or it is a great stand alone ribbon.



As you can see from the side, I used a small piece of the top ribbon (kiwi watermelon) and tied all three separate bows together.  This bow is on the bulky side but it sure does look stunning on the front of this card!


The stamp set is a retired stamp from Stampendous-Cutie Watermelon.  The entire card is stamped using Memento ink.  The card is adhered together with Xyron 5" Creative Station.


Thanks so much for visiting!

Home For Christmas

Hello Jax Bean Stalks followers and friends!  I am so excited to officially announce that I am a new member of the Spectrum Noir Educational DT!  I am so thrilled to be part of this fantastic and talented group of designers!

Today I have a cute little Christmas themed card featuring a stamped image from Crafter's Companion.  This little bear is part of the Party Paws EZ Mount Home for Christmas set.  Isn't he adorable?!?!


I decided to make the heart into one of those fun shortbread cookies with the jam filling!  I added Glossy Accents to make the jam and the bear's nose look shiny.


My image is colored with the following Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers: 
Bear- IG1, IG2, IG3, IG4, IG5, IG6, CR2
Hat and Coat-DR4, DR6
Poinsettia- DR4, DR6, JG2
Cookie-TN2, TN3m TN4, DR4
Outline- IB1, IB2, IB3, IG1


My double bow is made from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It is Christmas Plaid-Red, Green and Gold.  I also used Red Seam Binding.


My card tab was made using an envelope punch board!  Then entire card was put together using Xyron 5" Creative Station.


Thanks so much for visiting today!  I cannot wait to make another card for Spectrum Noir.  It is just such an honor to be part of this team!
