Hi there crafty peeps! I am back today to share with you a card I created with a cute image from Whimsie Doodles and some fabulous ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store.
I colored "Latte Lizzie" with my Copic Markers. I cut her out with my Pierced Rectangle STAX dies from MFT and matted it with Wild Cherry Cardstock. I used Echo Park "Keepin Cozy" patterned paper for the card.
I wrapped Gray Plaid Ribbon around the card and also created a bow with this using my Bow It All Tool. I also wrapped Red Burlap String around the card as well. I hope you enjoy my card. I had so much fun coloring up this image. Have a wonderful day!
Hi there! Today is the start of a new challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog. Bonnie has challenged us to use the theme "Hearts with ribbon" on a crafty project. I created this Valentine below with ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store and hearts hanging from the little girl's umbrella. Isn't that vintage image so sweet?! I used paper from BasicGrey's "True Love" collection. I matted it all with Wild Cherry cardstock from MFT. The doilies peaking out are cut with an MFT die on red glitter cardstock. I added Stickles in Christmas Red to the hearts in the image as well.
Hi there crafty peeps! I am back today to share with you a sweet vintage valentine I made using Ribbon and Baker's Twine from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store.
I matted the digital printout image on glitter cardstock and lined the image with stickles glitter glue in Pink Taffeta. The paper is from last years Crate Paper Valentine's Day collection. I matted that on glitter cardstock as well and glued that to a standard A2 card base. I placed a white heart doily behind the image before adhering it to the card base.
For my project, I decided to make a Valentine's Day pillow treat box with two of the ribbons in the assortment. I absolutely love this sentiment from the MFT Lovey-Dovey set. Unfortunately it is a retired set. I stamped with Doll Pink Simon Says Stamp Ink and inked the edges with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I added some teal enamel hearts to the sentiment tag.

Hi there crafty peeps! I am back today on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to share a quick but cute decor piece for Valentine's Day. I have a set of wood blocks in my craft room that I change for each season/holiday. I had a Christmas banner set hanging from the blocks, but since Christmas is officially over *sad face*, I decided to created a new banner set to hang from them.
I used patterned paper from the BoBunny Head Over Heals collection matted with red cardstock. I cut out the letters from red glitter cardstock and my Silhouette Cameo. The last block has a stamped and die-cut image from the My Favorite Things Distressed Hearts set. I added black adhesive gems and black heart enamel shapes to four of the blocks as accents. The middle block has a die-cut heart and a white button tied with pink/black bakers twine.
The finished dimensions for each banner are small length banners- 2.5 x 3.25; medium length banners- 2.5 x 3.75; large length banners- 2.5 x 4.25. I hope you enjoy this project and it inspires you to start some Valentine's Day projects of your own. Have a wonderful day!
