The Best and Most Beautiful

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

Check out the April's Ribbon Club ribbons.

April's Aqua and Coral mix is just to die for!  It just screams spring!  The following are the ribbons I used on my project: Roses with Scalloped Edge Grosgrain AquaDiamond Satin Light CoralRRR Select Swiss Dots Coral Rose, and Checkerboard Satin Tropic.

I have used several products from Crafter's Companion and Spectrum Noir.  My entire background was created with Spectrum Aqua's Watercolor markers.  I used the scarlet and watered it down to get a light coral color.  I painted it over the Sheena Stencil in pop dotty.  I stenciled embossing cream to get the white dots.  I sanded the corner and stamped a sentiment from the Sentimentals Love is All You Need set.  All of these products can be found at Crafter's Companion.

After I water colored the background of my paper, I used a baby wipe to remove the color off of the stenciled area.  It easily comes off since the Spectrum Aqua pens are water based.

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

Crafty Secrets and Really Reasonable Ribbon Cross Promotion-Featuring Bunny Hop Fun

Hi to all my friends and fans.  I am so excited to be hosting day 6 of the Cross Promotion with Crafty Secrets over on the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog.  I am just IN LOVE with these fun digital stamps from Crafty Secrets!  I HOP...I mean hope you like them. 

This festive card is made using Wrinkle Ribbon, Toole and Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I have paired these beautiful ribbons with a Vintage Image from Crafty Secrets.  I love all the fun images you get with the Crafty Secrets: Bunny hop Printable Download.  It is perfect for any Spring Themed Card.  My Yellow Wrinkle Ribbon is tied using the Bow It All 2.0.  It is tied with five loops making it super puffy.  I added accents of Yellow Toole (yellow is out but there are still a couple of really pretty colors left) and Oyster Bakers Twine to give the card a bit more character.

I colored my image using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.  I used the following colors: PP2, GB2, GB3, GG3, IB1, EB3.  My designer paper is from Echo Park in Summer Bliss.

I made this Easter themed card using Crafty Secrets: Bunny hop Printable Download.  I embellished it with Really Reasonable Ribbon's Denim and Baker's Twine in Blue Solid.

I also colored this image using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.  I used the following colors:  LY1, IB1, CG1, PP2, LV2, IG1, IG3.  My designer paper is from Echo Park in Splendid Sunshine.

Hope you have time to "HOP" on over to the Crafty Secrets Blog and check out what there team has to show off for today's cross promotion.  Thanks for visiting!

Cute Cupcake

What a gorgeous Sunday.  Hope everyone is enjoying this fabulous weather, wherever you are!  Here on the Western Slope of Colorado we are already at about 80 degrees.  I have all the windows in the house open.  Just airing it all out!

Do you ever feel like you are scrambling to get a birthday card ready?  I always feel like I don’t have any on hand when I need them.  It is so frustrating.  So, what I have done is come up with a card layout that you can customize for male or female…and for the kiddos.  It is super simple and takes just about 5-8 minutes to throw together.

I have used the Faux Canvas ribbon in Fuchsia.  I tied a simple triple looped bow and made sure to wrap the ribbon around the middle of the card to add an extra pop of color to this fun and festive card.  My Cupcake is from Crafter's Companion.  It is from the Bebunni Floral Dies collection and is called "Cupcake"!!  LOL!!    The sentiment is from the Sentimentals-Greetings, also found at CC.

If you can come up with a good layout (or you can use my LO), then the possibilities are endless.  I have taken this die cut cupcake and made it into several different colors to match different papers.  With the die cut in 3 pieces this is really the most time consuming part of the card.  With the cupcakes pre-made, I can simply add ribbon and a sentiment to the square die cut.  Voila, the card is done and ready to give.

Here are a few more angles of this card.  Feel free to use my LO and stock up on your stash of Birthday Cards.  

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
