Stamperia Hortensia Framed Card Reneabouquets Beautiful Board by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Orchid Floral Fantasy Card for the Really Reasonable Ribbon February 2021 Blog Hop

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon February 2021 Blog Hop!  You should be coming here from Ginny’s amazing blog.  Today’s Orchid Floral Fantasy Card is brought to you by the February 2021 Ribbon Club Assortment.

How much do we love this Pastel Stash Builder Assortment?  So many colors to choose from!  The Light Orchid Checkerboard Satin and 3/8″ Purple Plaid Ribbons   caught my eye right away. That’s because I’ve been itching to play with these new Stamperia Papers!

Orchid Floral Fantasy Card

Nothing makes me happier than having a perfect ribbon color match for a card!  Here are some tips and tricks I used while making this card.

  • First, create a 5″ x 7″ top fold card base from orchid cardstock.
  • Next, mat a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ panel of floral design paper from Stamperia Hortensia on purple and white cardstock.
  • Now fussy cut the image of the lady from the paper pack.  Back with a double layer of dimensionals to make the image pop off the page.
  • Then cut a post card from the paper collection.  Adhere the image to the postcard and add to the card base.
  • Frame the image with a Reneabouquet’s Lavendar Lilac Heart Frame.
  • Now tie a triple loop bow with Light Orchid Satin Ribbon.  Adhere in the corner of the heart frame.  Top with a loopy iridescent string bow.

Next you just need to scatter flowers and butterflies everywhere.

A little snipped of Purple Plaid ribbon is the perfect finishing touch.

A Peek Inside

Use more Light Orchid Satin Ribbon inside the card as a closure for the flap element.

Tie a little journaling tag on with a bit of Purple Plaid Ribbon.

Now you’ve got room to add photos inside the card, which turns it into a sort of folio.

Fill a pocket with a note card and little treats and your work is done!

Now hop on over and see what paper pretties Cheryl has in store for you.   Then be sure to finish up over on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog so you can answer Bonnie’s question of the month.  Your name will be entered in the drawing to win your very own February Ribbon Club Assortment.

Mad Hatter Valentine Shaker Card

Mad Hatter Valentine Shaker Card Memory Place Tea with Alice Reneabouquets by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

Mad Hatter Valentine Shaker Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  What could be cuter for Valentine’s Day than this Mad Hatter Valentine Shaker Card?  It sort of lends a new meaning to the phrase “mad about you,” doesn’t it?

Black Houndstooth Ribbon and Black Baker’s Twine add the perfect balance to this bright, bold color palette.  It plays perfectly with the itty bitty playing cards in the shaker element and sort of “grounds” the mix of pastel and primary colors in the card design.

Before you adhere your card front to the card base, why not wrap it with Baker’s Twine? I actually ran the twine through the brad holes in this metal door plate, then adhered the ends behind the card front.  This allowed me to  cluster my little tea charms at the top as a dangle element.  Then I just added a small baker’s twine bow and flower to finish things off.

The Shaker Element

Look at the detail in our Mad Hatter!  Isn’t it amazing?  This is Printed Beautiful Board from Reneabouquets Shop.  (link below)  See how the check pattern in his trousers echoes the checked ribbon?  It’s always a good design idea to repeat a pattern.

Add Baker’s Twine to the top of the pocket watch shaker, and to the bow cluster to create fulness and texture.

A Peek Inside

The inside of this card is simple, but still playful.

The flap element doubles as a tea caddy.

And the larger pocket holds a little note card and chocolate treat wallet with a Baker’s Twine closure.

As much as I love frilly pink Valentines, I also love the whimsy and playfulness of this Mad About You Shaker Valentine, how about you?

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

Spellbinders Make a Scene Shaker Card

Spellbinders Make a Scene Collection Becca Feeken Reneabouquets Shaker Card by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Spellbinders Make a Scene Shaker Card

Hello, Friends!  Need a little promise of spring? I’m hoping this Spellbinders  Make a Scene Shaker Card will feel like sunshine and blues skies on this chilly February day!  What a treat to work with this amazing new set of dies from the one and only Becca Feeken (Amazing Paper Grace)!   Nothing warms up a wintry afternoon like making a shaker card filled with peeps and wee chicks in an old shoe!

Make a Scene Collection

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Make a Scene Collection, you might just want to take a peep.  (See what I did there?  I apologize!)  This huge collection can be used in all kinds of ways.  The shaker frame is made with the Scallop Façade Frame Etched Die Set.  If you are a shaker card maker, you will love this die!  Here’s how I put this shaker frame together.

  • First, create a 7″ x 5″ top fold card base.
  • Next, arrange the outer scallop frame, inside filigree frame insert and the smallest rectangle frame together over patterned paper.  TIP: Use a bit of washi tape or Post-it Tape to hold the dies in place.  Then die cut.
  • Now cut a piece of clear cardstock (acetate) to fit the back of the frame.  Adhere this with Dries Clear Adhesive.
  • Then layer 3 rows of 1/8″ foam strips around the wider frame border.
  • Next, place the Easter Chic sequin mix on the background panel. Be generous:  this is a big frame!
  • Now carefully line up the acetate frame over the background layer.  When you are sure it is straight, press in place.

See?  That was easy, right?

Grand Cinch and Go Flowers

Use the Make a Scene Grand Cinch and Go Flowers Dies to die cut flower layers from your paper scraps.  Using patterned paper to cut out flower layers is a huge time saver.  Plus, you end up with perfectly color matched flowers on your card.

And can we just talk about the ribbon for a minute?  This cheery mix of ribbons is from the Really Reasonable Ribbon February Ribbon Club Assortment.  They could not have been a more perfect match for this card!

Little Peeps

And I just have to mention these adorable little chicks in a shoe.  Once again, Reneabouquets Printed Beautiful Board is a perfect fit.

Sometimes, you really do get what you ask for!

Ok…this is super exciting!  I’ve been asking the fine folks at Authentique paper to re-release some of their fabulous older collections in a “Best of” collection pad.  And guess what?  They did it!  This “Best of Springtime” paper collection kit is now available for purchase online.  Friends, I am over the moon at this new development.  (You can also find “Best of Beloved” for Valentine’s Day, too!)

A Peek Inside

Here’s a peek at the inside of this sweet little card.  Bunnies and posies and plaids and checks.  Oh, yes please!  There’s a Lemon Lift tea bag tucked into the tea wallet, too.

So that’s it for me friends!  I hope I’ve added a bit of sunshine to this wintry day.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Cozy Cottage Kitchen Shaker Easel Card

Lemoncraft Delicious Strawberry Tea Party Shaker Easel Card Reneabouquets by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Cozy Cottage Kitchen Shaker Easel Card with LemonCraft Delicious and Reneabouquets

Hello, Friends!  I can’t think of a better way to start this week than with this Cozy Cottage Kitchen Shaker Easel Card!  It speaks to my heart about everything homey and comfortable in a country kitchen.  And hello…it’s tea!  So you know I’m in love!

I treated myself to  the “Delicious” paper collection from LemonCraft. Yes, I broke my rule about “no new paper companies”.  But honestly, can you blame me?  I simply could not resist the polka dot tea pots, tea cups and gingham patterns in this farmhouse style collection.

And this 6″ x 6″ easel shaker card is so full of happy!  There’s a promise of springtime, the warmth of home, and more than a hint of cottage style here.  Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

Cozy Cottage Kitchen Shaker Easel Card Tips

  • First, create a 6×6 easel card base.  Then create the inside of the card.  I know this seems backwards, but I like to get the inside done while I can still lay the card down flat.  It’s so much easier!
  • Next, create a 2 1/2″ high pocket from the woodgrain patterned paper.  If you don’t know how to make a pocket, watch THIS VIDEO TUTORIAL to learn several different ways to make pockets.
  • Now cut a 6×6 panel of cardstock.  This can be any color that complements the paper collection.  We will use this as the base for the card cover.
  • Then cut a 6×6 panel of red gingham pattern from the collection.  Adhere this to our card base.
  • Cut a 1/2″ strip of the woodgrain paper and create a border at the top of this panel.  Then wrap the panel with 1/2″ Scor-Tape, red twill ribbon, and white crochet lace.
  • Now cut a 5 3/4″ panel of the main image.  Fussy cut around the top edge as seen in the photo.  Back with foam tape or other dimensionals and adhere to the card base.
Shake it Up!

The main embellishment on this card is made with a Reneabouquets Small Heart Deco Bead Frame.  Here’s how to put it together:

  • First, heat emboss the frame with Stampendous Shabby White Embossing Enamel.
  • Then die cut a small circle from clear cardstock (acetate) and adhere on the back side of the frame.
  • Now add 3 layers of 1/8″ foam adhesive to the inside edge of the frame.
  • Next, place a small pile of My Valentine Shaker Elements in the area where you intend to adhere the frame. Fussy cut the polka dot tea cup from the paper collection and adhere to the card front.  I wanted the polka dot teacup to be the focal image inside my shaker frame, so that’s where I placed my sequins.
  • Now line up the frame over the image and press it to adhere.
  • Adhere the fussy cut jam jar and itty bitty spoon to finish the frame.

 

The Stopper or Brake for the Easel Card

One of the things I love the most about making an easel card is the amount of room you have to add beautiful embellishments.  The stopper, or brake, for this card is actually the inside pocket.  I dug through my stash and found this Prima “Say it in Crystals” lace bit that matched the beige check pattern so well that I had to use it on the pocket.  Then I created a floral cluster with Little Birdie Flowers, Pollen Heads and a juicy raspberry sent to me by a dear friend.  Die cut the sentiment from several pieces of scraps.  Then layer them all together and adhere to the pocket.

A Peek  inside

You can have a lot of fun dressing up the inside of this Cozy Cottage Kitchen   Turn a small embellishment into a pocket that’s just the right size for a miniature Lindt chocolate.

Then use your scraps to create a little 3×4 tea wallet for the pocket.

I hope this cheery little card adds sunshine to your Monday!  You’ll be seeing more of this collection in the days ahead.  Look for a linked supply list below the post, too.

Thanks for stopping by!

Butterfly Kisses Shaker Easel Card Tutorial

Throwback Thursday Authentique Adore Butterfly Kisses with Reneabouquets Beautiful Board by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Throwback Thursday: Butterfly Kisses Shaker Easel Card Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  What could be more romantic than a Butterfly Kisses Shaker Easel Card Tutorial?  Welcome to Throwback Thursday!  This week, we’re pulling Authentique Paper’s 2015 Adore collection out of the Closet of Shame.  Although this is a Valentine collection, I think this card would work for just about any situation.  Are you ready to get your craft on?  Then let’s dig in!

Building the Base

Authentique Adore Shaker Easel Card by Kathy Clement Photo 01

I think you are going to like this easel card base, as it’s a little different from what I usually do. That’s because I found a scrap of pink cardstock in the storage envelope when I rescued this pretty collection from the COS.  And since Throwback Thursday is all about using your stash, that’s exactly what I did!  Here’s how to make the base for this card.

  • First, score a 7″ x 12″ panel of pink cardstock at 2 1/2″, 5″ and 10″.
  • Now fold along the scored lines to create a 7″ x 5″ top fold easel card with a 2″ pocket on the inside. (Watch the video to see this done.)
  • Next, cut a 6 7/8″ x 4 7/8″ panel of designer paper to  line the inside panel of the card. Then cut 1″ x 1 7/8″ gussets for the sides of the pocket.  Fold the gussets in half and adhere to make the pocket.  Again, watch the video to see how this is done.
  • Line the pocket with a 7″ x 1 7/8″ panel of rose patterned paper.
  • Line the easel folds, inside and out, with 7″ x 2 3/8″ panels of designer paper.
  • Now create the focal image.  Mat a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ panel of designer paper on two shades of pink cardstock.  Stitch around the perimeter, if desired.  This adheres on the front of the easel.
  • Then mat a 3″ x 4″ on 2 shades of pink cardstock and adhere alongside as seen in the video.
Creating the Shaker Frame

Die cut clear cardstock with a Spellbinder’s Large Standard Circle Die.  Adhere this on the back of the Reneabouquets printed beautiful board frame.  Add 3 layers of 1/8″ foam tape.  Add your shaker mix to the 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ focal.  Then adhere the frame.

TIP: Just for fun, add some Reneabouquets Tiny Treasures Butterflies to the shaker mix.  They “flutter” around when the card is shaken, which is really fun.

Add a cascade of Little Birdie Candy Roses and more Reneabouquets butterflies to the sides of the frame.

Creating the Stopper

The pocket serves as the stopper, or brake, for this easel card mechanism.  Dress it up with a heat embossed Beautiful Board Border.   I used Wow Vintage Romance Embossing Powder here and on the Reneabouquets Filigree Heart.

Heat emboss the Reneabouquets “Love” Beautiful Board Sentiment with Antique Gold Embossing Enamel.

A Peek Inside

Here’s a look at the inside of the card.

Plenty of room to tuck in a little tea wallet, vintage demitasse spoon, chocolate and honey stick.
