Love For Today

Hello friends and followers.  So glad to have you join me today.  I have 2 really bold cards to share with you.  
This first card is featuring the new release of Sheena's Stencils from Crafter's Companion.  This particular one is Wildflowers (will be available soon) and the Sentimentals set is Nature. The background is airbrushed with my eBrush and SN marker CT4.  The Stencil is airbrushed with Spectrum Noir BG5.  It has Really Reasonable Ribbon's Sheer Organza with Satin Center in Yellow Gold tied around the center.  I tied a double bow using the Bow It All 2.0.  

Thanks for joining me today.  Hope you enjoy your Monday!

Music For Your Heart

What a great 3 day weekend it has been!  Hi everyone so glad to have you this Sunday.  I have a really fun Valentines Day card.  It features products from Crafter's Companion and some fun ribbon and twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I made my card by embossing "Laughter is the music for your heart to dance to..."with silver embossing powder.    I popped up the heart with 3M foam mounting tape.  I tied RRR Black Licorice Bakers Twine in 5 rows and tied it off with Really Reasonable Ribbon's Lipstick Red Seam Binding.

Here is a close up of the seam binding.  It is super easy to tie and I just LOVE the way bows turn out when I use this ribbon.

I used super fine silver metallic embossing powder to achieve the shiny look of the sentiment on the front of my card.  I love all the Sentimental Sets at Crafter's Companion. This one is from the Imagine EzMount Stamp Set. They have tons of sentiments in one set, so they are so worth buying.  You can see all of them here at the Crafter's Companion USA site.

Please join in on the Really Reasonable Challenge going on now at the RRR blog!  It is to use Hearts and Ribbon.  Hope to see you there!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Dainty Heart Valentine

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

Check out the January Ribbon Club ribbons.  This fun super pink themed ribbon is one of my fav's.  I have loved pink since I was little!

Here is my card using a couple different ribbons from the "Love is in the Air Assortment".  I used the Hot Pink and Shocking Pink Diagonal Striped Grosgrain along with the Diamond Satin is Shocking Pink.  

It is really easy to use multiple ribbons to make a bold statement on your cards or projects.  You just add a thinner ribbon to the top of a thick ribbon.  I find that it is a great way to use patterned grosgrain.  Because for me, patterned grosgrain is the hardest ribbon to tie bows with.  So, this is how I incorporate them into my projects.

My project features the NEW Spectrum Aqua markers.  They are amazing and so easy to use!  Crimson is the color I used to achieve my water colored heart with splatters.  Stay tuned for more samples using these amazingly cool markers throughout the month of January!

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

Did you catch my video tutorial from last months hop?  Well here is your chance if you missed it!  It features last months ribbon club assortment.  This card can be maid into any theme!  Makes for a quick and personal gift too!
