RRR  June Ribbon Club Blog Hop: Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Flower Box Card

Hello, Friends!  Today I’m sharing a Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Flower Box Card for the Really Reasonable Ribbon June Blog Hop.  You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog.  The June Ribbon Club Summer Stripes Assortment is filled with all the vibrant colors that the season has to offer.  Think Flip Flops, Watermelon, Beach Umbrellas and Pool Parties!

Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Flower Box Card: Sweet Summer Blooms

My mind went straight to colorful geraniums and petunias spilling over the edge of flower boxes.  And that’s how this flower box card came to life.  You all know how much I love pockets and tags.  So I decided to put both items front and center on this fun flower box styled card.

Create a faux flower box then fill it with adorable little tags.  Top the tags with Apple Green Swiss Dots Satin Ribbon  and Lime/Bright Pink Sherbet Swirl Grosgrain Ribbon from the Club Assortment.  Then tie on an itty bitty key with a little Natural Burlap String.

Mount the tag pocket on a larger box pocket.  Create cute borders on the box pocket and at the top of the card with the same Lime/Bright Pink Sherbet Ribbon.

Create a little snacky picnic in the box pocket by dressing up some treats with more ribbon and designer paper.

A Peek Inside

The inside of the card is simply decorated with more designer paper, blank sentiment panel and a tag and pocket combo.

On With the Hop!

Now hop on over and see what paper pretties Cherry has in store for you. Finish the hop over on the RRR Blog .  Answer Bonnie’s question of the month to be entered into the drawing for a free June Ribbon Club Assortment.

I Must Have Flowers Always and Always

Must Have Flowers Carta Bella Farmhouse Card Folio by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

 I Must Have Flowers Always and Always: Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Card Folio

Hello Friends!  I Must Have Flowers always and always!  Do you feel that way?  I’m not much of a gardener, but I do love pretty floral papers and paper flowers on my projects.  This sweet little springtime card is made with the new Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Papers and some beautiful rolled roses from Little Birdie Crafts.

I Must Have Flowers…and Pretty Pretty Ribbons, too!

Light Coral Diamond Satin Ribbon is absolutely dreamy with this paper collection.  I’ve paired it up with some Iridescent Metallic String in the bow cluster. The way this string reflects the colors that surround it is absolutely magical!

And how about those flowers?  These lovely Layla Pastel Palette blooms are so pretty!  Did you know you can alter your Little Birdie Flowers?  First, I gently tapped the edges with a little Gathered Twigs Distress ink.  Then I brushed on some Stamperia Gold Dew Glamour Gel to add a touch of sparkle.  You can also brush them with Perfect Pearls or any mica based powder.  The subtle shading and shine adds to the vintage feel of this pretty card.

I Must Have Flowers: A Peek Inside

Turn this pretty card into a gift by adding a couple of pockets on the inside.  Fill the top pocket  with a color matched tea bag, note card, and decorated honey stick.

Decorate a pretty bookmark with Coral Rose Swiss Dots Satin and Petal Peach Quatrefoil Satin Ribbon.  Stitch the paper bookmark pieces onto some canvas to make a  soft bookmark that will last a long time.  This is a stamp that I’ve had in my stash for a very long time. Sadly, it has been discontinued.  But you could always print the sentiment out on your computer and add to the bookmark that way.

I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and ideas you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Tall and Skinny Card for the RRR Hop

Hello, Friends!  Today I have a Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Tall and Skinny Card for the Really Reasonable Ribbon March Blog Hop.  You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog.  We are showcasing the gorgeous Garden Delights Ribbon Club Assortment this month.  If you love spring flowers and gardening, these ribbons will make your heart happy!

Since I had just purchased these lovely Carta Bella Farmhouse Market papers, I decided to work with the coral toned ribbons from the collection.  They are a perfect match up for the saturated hues and floral patterns.

Ribbon can be used in so many different ways when you are designing a card.  Coral Rose Swiss Dot Satin Ribbon acts as a border along the base of this 4″ x 8 1/2″ cut away card.

The same ribbon  looks amazing tucked into the bow cluster with some cream flowers and iridescent metallic string.

Wrap the same iridescent metallic string around the top of the card to add a touch of shine.  Then top with some flat back pearls to add a bit of elegance.

The inside of this card is pretty simple.  Add a sentiment from the ephemera pack.  Then make a quick and easy side pocket to hold a note card and a treat.

Mat the 4″ x 6″ journal card on cream cardstock so you can write a note on the back.  And you knew there had to be tea tucked in somewhere, didn’t you?

On With the Hop!

Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Live True Card

 

Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Live True Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  I’m inviting spring to burst upon us with this sweet and simple Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Live True Card.  The sentiment on the front is from one of my favorite authors, Laura Ingalls Wilder. These are wise words and true, and the older I get, the more I believe them!  These pretty Farmhouse Market papers are a perfect match up for the RRR March Ribbon Club Assortment.  How great is that?

This 6×6 card features loads of paper layers, a die cut doily, pearls and posies.  If that doesn’t entice springtime, then I don’t know what will!  Pretty Coral Rose Satin Swiss Dots Ribbon works perfectly as a border and really helps the sentiment panel to pop.

Light Coral Diamond Satin makes for a pretty bow cluster when paired up with these flowers that I found in my stash. (retired Petaloo).

The inside of the card is sweet and simple, too.  A lovely floral panel for writing a note covers the bottom half of the card.  And a color matched tea bag is nested inside a small double pocket on the top.  To make the double pocket, adhere the ends of the ephemera card on the sides of the note card pocket.  So easy, but so pretty!

Sometimes, simple is just the ticket!  I hope this Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Live True card has some simple tips, tricks and inspiration that you can use in your crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
