Christmas Bells Are Ringing

Hello everyone!  Thanks for joining me this Sunday!  With Christmas fast approaching (forget Halloween and Thanksgiving LOL!), I thought I would give you a couple of simple card ideas.

For this 1st card, I have used RRR's Plaid Ribbon Christmas/Red/Green/Gold.  This fun ribbon is really easy to tie.  And the picture doesn't do it justice.  The Gold is just beautiful running in tiny little threads throughout the ribbon.  I have used several products from Crafters Comapnion.  The background is embossed with Embossalicious-Splendor embossing folder.  The bell is from the Angel Wings and Fancy Things embossing board.  This is diffidently a go to for your Christmas projects.

Nothing like a White Christmas.  This fun card is using RRR's Double Faced Satin in White.  It comes in a variety of sizes.  This card is also made with Crafters Comapanion products.  I made the two starts using the Snowman Delight and Candlelight Embossing board.

Hope these two cards get you motivated to start your Christmas Cards!!!  Thanks for stopping by on your Sunday to take a look!

Balloon Festival Fun

Hello Jax Bean Stalks friends and followers! Today I am really excited to be able to share with you inspiration featuring Really Reasonable Ribbon and Heartfelt Creations products.
If you are hopping with us today, you should have arrived from Cherry's Blog.

I have always wanted to make a partially clear card.  I finally got the opportunity to use Heartfelt Creations adorable Balloon and Bicycle set along with the clear cardstock that they carry.  It made for a really great effect for my card.  I LOVE the way the hot air balloon floats right off the card!

I have used a couple of different ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The Double Ruffle in black in the back of the bow.  I tied it a little bigger than the Fuchsia Seam Binding in the front.  It made a really puffy bow and was perfect for the theme and era of this card. I wanted it to have a bit of a vintage circus feel.  Hope I achieved it!!!

You can really see the clear cardstock from this angle!

Thank so much for stopping in today.  Enjoy the rest of the hop!  You are now off to your next stop,

Jolly Happy Christmas Keepsake and a Blog Hop

Hello Jax Bean Stalks friends and followers!  It is hop time again with Really Reasonable Ribbon!  So excited to showcase beautiful October Ribbon Club!!!
If you are hopping with us today, you should have arrived from Cherry's Blog.

Check out the October Ribbon Club ribbons.  I just LOVE these traditional colors.  They make a great addition to your Christmas supplies.  I have used all of the ribbons in the club assortment to make a handmade Christmas Keepsake from a tree branch.  I have also used a few of the ribbons to create a simple Christmas card that matches!

I had to try this cute ornament out this year.  I had seen it on the internet (now Pinterest) a few years ago.  It was so easy.  Just grabbed a stick from the backyard and tied on some ribbon!  Hope it inspires you to make an easy Christmas Keepsake.

Thank so much for stopping in today.  Enjoy the rest of the hop!  You are now off to your next stop,

Snow One Like You

Hello !  So excited to show you this fun winter themed card! It was featured on HSN yesterday for the 24 hour craft event.  Sara Davies from Crafters Companion was on HSN to showcase the Ultimate Tool which I have used to make this fun card.

I have used the Snowman Delight & Candlelight Embossing BoardShimmering Cardstock-White Pearl, Black Pearl, Vintage Christmas Sentiments.

I just LOVE snowmen and this little guy is an outside the box sort of snowman.  I decided to take the non-traditional road and do him up in stripes!  My ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbon's Sheer Organza with Satin Center in red.    This particular ribbon comes in many other colors and is a beautiful ribbon for any themed card or project.  It is really easy to tie and it stays a "tight" bow once tied.

Thanks so much for visiting!
