Carta Bella Christmas Market Card

Carta Bella Christmas Market Card for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon October Blog Hop.  You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog.   I’ve used the October Ribbon Club Assortment to make this fun and festive Carta Bella Christmas Market Card Folio.

 

I just love the fact that the Christmas Ornaments Ribbon matches the Christmas ornaments paper in this collection!  So I had to create a little double decker bow with White Diamond Satin.  Add a little sparkle with silver metallic string and mini jingle bells.   Brush festive die cut holiday greenery with a little Diamond Stickles to resemble snow.

Ribbon on the inside of a card adds a special touch.  Dress up a mini candy cane and honey stick with a snippet of the Christmas Ornament Ribbon.

Tuck a sweet treat and a gift card/tea wallet into the pocket, and now the card becomes a gift!

This ribbon club assortment is a perfect match for these fun papers!

If you haven’t signed up for the Ribbon Club, now is a great time to join.  It’s like getting a Christmas present every single month of the year.  Learn how to sign up HERE.

Graphic 45 Magic of Oz Folio

Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop: Graphic 45 Magic of Oz Folio

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon September 2019 Blog Hop!  You should be coming  here from Karen’s lovely blog.   Today I’m showcasing the Spook-tacular Halloween Ribbons from the September Ribbon Club Assortment.  They go frightfully well with this Graphic 45 Magic of Oz Folio.

I kept the cover pretty simple, just adding a fussy cut title, some flowers and a poufy bow tied with the 3/8″ Black Stripe Grosgrain from the Ribbon Club Assortment.   Black Satin Swiss Dot Ribbon works great for the closure.

TIP: When tying a thick bow, like the black and white striped grosgrain, wrap wire around the center instead of tying a knot.  This gives the center of the ribbon less bulk, and allows you to really fluff out the loops.

Tangerine Satin Ribbon really pops on the spine.  Glue chipboard charms to the ribbon ends for extra fun.  Silver Metallic String is used to loop another charm and a vintage style clock through the bow at the top.

Graphic 45 Magic of Oz Folio: A Peek Inside

Purple, green, orange and black is the perfect color combination for Halloween.  It also happens to work beautifully with The Magic of Oz, which is really handy.

Top a little tag with a combo of Apple Green Delicate Stitched Satin and Grape Diamond Stitched Satin.  Then tie off with a short piece of the black and white stripe grosgrain.

Tuck fussy cut ATC cards from the collection behind a belly band to create a fun, interactive element.

The center panel of this tri-fold folio is a waterfall element with a magnetic closure mechanism.

Secure a fold out folio with a Black Satin Swiss Dot belly band.  Add a little charm on silver metallic string to add visual interest.

Tuck a hidden page behind the fold out folio for extra fun.

This itty bitty book is secured with a snippet of ribbon , then tucked into a pocket.

Hidden pockets are loads of fun, especially when they are filled with a double pull out page.

Photo mounts and another little accordion folio fit in the spacious pocket.

Oakberry Lane Triple Easel Card Tutorial

Heartfelt Creations August 2019 Alumni Hop: Oakberry Lane Triple Easel Card Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations August 2019 Alumni Blog Hop!  I’m kicking things off today with a bright and cheery Oakberry Lane Triple Easel Card Tutorial.  This was my first attempt at making a triple easel card, and after some trial and error, I finally figured out how to do it!  So I made a tutorial for all of you to save you some time, energy and paper.  Let’s take a closer look at the details on this happy card.

Oakberry Lane Triple Easel Card Tutorial: The Inspiration

Fall is peeping around the corner here in North Carolina.  The temperature might not show it, but the squirrels have been scurrying around stashing away acorns for winter.  Watching their antics inspired me to make this 6″ x 6″ card using the darling Oakberry Lane Collection.

 

Easel cards are one of my “go to” fancy fold designs.  I love how quick they are to make, and how easy they are to display.   You can watch the video below to learn how to create the base.

Oakberry Lane Triple Easel Card Tutorial: The Details

Here are some tips and tricks for adding the details to this fun card.

  • First, stamp the Acorn House on Smooth White Cardstock using Jet Black Archival Ink.
  • Next, color it in with Distress Markers and a water brush.  Simple scribble the marker on a craft mat or a bit of clear acrylic packaging.  Then pick up the color with a water brush and blend it onto the stamped image.
  • Now, die cut the house, the windows and the squirrel Mom with the matching die.  Pop up on adhesive strips and attach to the base.

  • Next, stamp 3 sets of Oakberry Lane Flowers using Butterscotch Archival Ink. Heat Emboss flowers and leaves with Clear Embossing Powder.
  • Then,   water color with Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey Distress Markers and a a water brush.  Color the leaves with Peeled Paint and Twisted Citron.
  • Die cut the leaves, then shape in the 3D Blossom Shaping Mold, following the directions for your machine.
  • Now add stamens to the centers and layer together.
  • Tie bows for each corner with Orange/Fuchsia/Lavender Checkered Ribbon.  Top with burlap string.

Use the dies to cut out images from the paper collection and scatter them around on the card to create a scene.  (Did you see that rascally little squirrel trying to snatch away Mother Squirrel’s freshly baked pie?)

Prima Autumn Sunset Gatefold Card

Prima Autumn Sunset Gatefold Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon August Hop

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon August Blog Hop.  You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog.  Today I have a shabby chic Prima Autumn Sunset Gatefold Card made with the gorgeous August Ribbon Club Assortment. to share with you.

This 4 1/4″ x 9″ gatefold style card is the perfect way to celebrate fall!  I’ve paired up Kiwi Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon with 3/8″ Copper/Cream Plaid Ribbon.  These hues are so pretty with the Prima Autumn Sunset Papers!

I don’t think I could manage without my trusty natural burlap string!  I buy it by the roll at RRR.  It adds such a lovely rustic touch to this fancy belly band.

To make the ribbon cluster on the belly band, I simply attached a length of Kiwi Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon to the back side of my card.  Then I brought the ends together on the left and tied a simple square knot.  Top with burlap string bow, acorn charms, a fancy button and you’re all set!

Prima Autumn Sunset Gatefold: A Peek Inside

I love the way a gatefold card opens!  It’s just like the curtains coming up on a stage!

This stamped and stitched bookmark is topped with ribbons from the Club as well as some WOC Mixed Earth Tone Roses Gold metallic string adds a touch of shimmer.  The best thing about this type of card is that is does triple duty:  a card, a gift and a home decor all in one!
