Really Reasonable Ribbon June Blog Hop

 
Hi there crafty ribbon lovers!  Today is the day for the June Blog Hop at Really Reasonable Ribbon. The design team and I have cooked up some beautiful projects with the new Summer Fun Assortment ribbon kit . 


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.

I decided to use a new stamp set just released from Lawn Fawn called So Jelly to create a Father's Day card .  I thought the ribbons in this kit would coordinate perfectly with the tropical theme of the stamp set.  I stamped and colored the images in with my Gansai Tambi watercolors onto Canson 140lb cold press watercolor paper.  I added some clear Wink of Stella after they dried.  I then cut the critters out with coordinating dies. 



I created a blue ombre ocean backdrop with Tim Holtz Distress inks in Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid Lagoon, and Tumbled Glass onto white cardstock.  I cut it out with a nesting die set from MFT.  I also created a frame out of the same white cardstock with the same die set.  I die cut waves from MFT translucent velum with the new Lawn Fawn Waves die and layered them on top of the backdrop.  I cut out sand from MFT Natural cardstock with a SSS stitched hill border die and placed that on the bottom.  I then stamped my sentiment onto the sand which is from a Clearly Besotted stamp set.  I then added my critters to the scene.  I added some translucent enamel dots for bubbles next to the critters.  I finally added my frame to the top. 

I cut out Lawn fawn patterned paper with a MFT stitched Blueprint die and matted it onto a Natural cardstock base.  I then wrapped Checkerboard Satin Turquoise ribbon and Summer Fun Diamond Print Grosgrain all from the Really Reasonable Ribbon June kit around the matted base.  I then added my underwater framed image to my base with foam tape.  As a final touch I added a knotted ribbon tie to the top of the frame with the same Really Reasonable Ribbon mentioned above.

 
 I really like how this card turned out.  I hope my dad enjoys it when it arrives in the mailbox on Father's Day.  Now head on over to Bonnie's Blog which is the next on our hop.  Have a wonderful crafty day.
