Really Reasonable Ribbon March Blog Hop



Hey there!  Today is the day for the March Blog Hop at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The design team and I have cooked up some beautiful projects with the new Spring Rainbow Assortment .


If you are following along you should have come here from Ginny's Blog.  If not, head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to start at the beginning.

For my card I used a new stamp set I purchased from Stampin Up called "Sheltering Tree".  This stamp set is so fun! You piece together the tree and accents in the colors and arrangement you want.  I made a spring "blooming" tree to match the fun colorful spring ribbon included in the assortment.  I inked up each of the elements in the stamp set with Stampin Up ink.  Before I stamped it on my watercolor paper, I sprayed it lightly 3 times with water to give it a watercolored look.  The sentiment is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink to stand out.  The patterned paper is from My Minds Eye and the Cardstock is Strawberry Slush Cardstock from Stampin Up.  I wrapped Delicate Stitched Satin Tropic and 3/8" Funky Flowers on Coral Rose Grosgrain around the center of the card and then created a bow with my Bow-It-All Tool and more Delicate Stitched Satin Tropic ribbon.


I hope you enjoy this bright springtime card. Now head on over to Bonnie's Blog which is the next on our hop. Have a wonderful crafty day!
