Hi there crafty ribbon lovers! Today is the day for the August Blog Hop at Really Reasonable Ribbon. The design team and I have cooked up some beautiful projects with the new Autumn Days ribbon assortment.
I knew right away when seeing the ribbon club assortment for this month that I needed to use the Classic Sunflower stamp and die set from Heartfelt Creations. I stamped the sunflowers and then colored them with my Tombo markers. I layered several blossoms together and formed the petals with my flower shaping kit. I pinched the edges with my fingers and then ran some Distress ink in Aged Mahogany on the tips as well. I made the centers sparkle with some Gold Gala Glitz. Of course I had to add two lady bugs covered in Glossy accents because they are too cute to pass up. I stamped the background stamp and inked it up with Distress Inks. I then covered it with 40lb Velum to create some softness. The sentiment is an older stamp from C.C. Designs that I had in my collection. I stamped it onto Chocolate cardstock and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I die cut a tag out of the sentiment from an older MFT Stax die.
I created two bands around the card with Kiwi Green Diamond Satin and 3/8" Orange/Yellow plaid ribbon. I then created a double loop bow with the same Kiwi green ribbon and tucked it under the lower right sunflower.
I hope you enjoy this fall themed card I created with the beautiful new ribbons from the August Ribbon Assortment. Now head on over to Bonnie's Blog which is the next on our hop. Have a wonderful crafty day!
