Witch Way

Hello everyone!  So glad you joined me today!  I cannot believe it is almost OCTOBER!!!  This year has gone by so fast.  Guess it is time to start thinking about Halloween!  I LOVE Halloween!  Today I have a fun Halloween card for you.

I have used the NEW Satin Swiss Dots Ribbon (it was also in the Sept. Ribbon club assortment) from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I tied little knots and attached them to the side of my card!  I really like the look of this ribbon...hope you do too!  My card features a stamp from Crafters Companion.  It is called Best Witches.  If you haven't seen the selection of Halloween stamps yet, head on over to CC to check them out!  You will fall in LOVE!

The ribbon really looks great with this fun Halloween themed image and papers.  My witch legs are colored with the following Spectum Noir Alcohol Markers:  OR1, OR2, OR3.  These orange family colors give my little witchy legs the effect of "glowing".  I love how it turned out!  The legs are colored with PL4.  The shoes are IG6, IG10.  The stars are FL3.

Thanks for joining me today!

Summer Sunflower

Hello everyone!   Today I have a cute little "Just Because" card.  This fun little bear is paired with a pretty little end of the summer sunflower.  I tied it all up using seam binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon and featuring markers from Spectrum Noir and my image is Crafters Companion!

The Seam Binding is Grass Green.  It is super flexible and is one of my most favorite types of ribbon to tie bows with.  Once you tie it, it pretty much stays where you want it to.  Really Reasonable Ribbon carries 2 pages worth of colors.  So if you love seam binding, you are guaranteed to find the right color here!

The look of a multi-looped bow really makes a card pop.  Plus seam binding is not at all bulky, so you can easily send it through the mail with no problem...maybe just a little smashing!!

Thanks for visiting!

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 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

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.
