Cute Cupcake

What a gorgeous Sunday.  Hope everyone is enjoying this fabulous weather, wherever you are!  Here on the Western Slope of Colorado we are already at about 80 degrees.  I have all the windows in the house open.  Just airing it all out!

Do you ever feel like you are scrambling to get a birthday card ready?  I always feel like I don’t have any on hand when I need them.  It is so frustrating.  So, what I have done is come up with a card layout that you can customize for male or female…and for the kiddos.  It is super simple and takes just about 5-8 minutes to throw together.

I have used the Faux Canvas ribbon in Fuchsia.  I tied a simple triple looped bow and made sure to wrap the ribbon around the middle of the card to add an extra pop of color to this fun and festive card.  My Cupcake is from Crafter's Companion.  It is from the Bebunni Floral Dies collection and is called "Cupcake"!!  LOL!!    The sentiment is from the Sentimentals-Greetings, also found at CC.

If you can come up with a good layout (or you can use my LO), then the possibilities are endless.  I have taken this die cut cupcake and made it into several different colors to match different papers.  With the die cut in 3 pieces this is really the most time consuming part of the card.  With the cupcakes pre-made, I can simply add ribbon and a sentiment to the square die cut.  Voila, the card is done and ready to give.

Here are a few more angles of this card.  Feel free to use my LO and stock up on your stash of Birthday Cards.  

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Spring is in the Air

WOW spring is here in Colorado!  I just love this time of year.  Hopefully the snow will stay away!  But, you never know, there have been years that we have had snow in June!  Never can tell in Colorado!

Today I have this fun airbrushed card that I tied up with seam binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  My dies, stamp and stencil image are all from Crafter's Companion.

This fun floppy bow is tied using Seam Binding in Charcoal Gray.  I tied the bow using the Bow it All 2.0 also from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

My stencil is from Sheena Douglas-Wildflowers.  The die cuts are Floral Collection Medal Die-Butterfly and Bee.  My sentiment is Sentimentals-Nature.  All these products are found at Crafter's Companion.

Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting!  Have a great rest of your day.

Shake, Shake, Shake

Hello to all the Really Reasonable Ribbon fans and followers.  It’s Jenn here from Jax Bean Stalks.  Do you like to win ribbon??  Well, don’t forget to stop in tomorrow for our new challenge here at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  We LOVE seeing your creations using ribbon and there is a new challenge theme every 2 weeks. 

Every time I make one of these cards, it reminds me of the Taylor Swift Song “Shake it Off”.  I even sing it (sometime out loud...and maybe dance a bit) while I am making them.  Shaker cards are fun and there are a TON of tutorials on Pinterest and the web that demonstrate how to assemble them. 

My sentiment and the Rolling Landscape are both from Crafter's Companion.  My background is made using water color paper and the new Spectrum Aqua markers.  

I wanted my ribbon to appear as water.  So I used the Faux Canvas Ribbon in Turquoise.  It is a bit stiffer and really hold a bow nicely.

I tied my bow using the Bow It All 2.0.  It is available at the RRR website.  If you are into ribbon and love making bows, this tool is for you.  You don’t have to be a card maker to use it.  It is the ultimate tool for hair bows and even bows for packages. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Don’t forget to stop in tomorrow for the reveal of our challenge!  The RRR Design Team has really outdone themselves with projects for this one!  Have a great Thursday (yea!  It is almost Friday!).
