Tiger Card

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday.

Today I am sharing a really cool card I created with a digital paper collection and stamp from StitchyBear Digital Stamp Outlet. This collection was created by Coosty Creations - Tiger Digital Stamp Pack. I really like it what a fabulous collection to create masculine cards and so with that being said One Stitch At A Time New Challenge 269 - Anything Goes with Men.
I would like to invite you all to join us for this fun challenge. Create anything masculine, this gives you a chance to win a $10 gift card to the StitchyBear Digi Outlet Store to shop for some awesome digital stamps or Paper collections with stamps.

Here is my card -

This paper collection comes with 4 digital papers and a digital stamp. 
I printed out all the paper designs on my neenha cardstock. I used one of the
paper designs for my base. I used 2 designs in the front as my card, cut into 
1 1/2 inch strips. I used regulat black cardstock for my mats. 

In this photo you can see a close up of that beautiful tiger. Doesn't he just look
majestic. I really like the way he is just sitting there, his face is just beautiful. 
This is the stamp, instead of coloring the stamp I printed him out on one of the
design papers and matted on the black cardstock. I used prima crystal gems I had
 in my stash, which I think added a nice touch. I also used a Graphic 45 chipboard Safari 
with black seam binding.

This is the inside of the card. I mated the design paper on the black card
stock again. This design paper has this beautiful tiger already on the paper 
so you don't have to print on the paper. 
I thought this would be a great piece for the inside of the card.

Helloo Deer

Hi all,

Hope you all are having a wonderful week. It's been a busy week so far and a little cooler here in Texas with temps in the 80's. :D  I hope you all are doing okay. I am here sharing a card I created for my some upcoming birthdays this fall so to start it off I created this masculine card.

Here is my card -

Today I have a wonderful masculine card for you all. A simple layout and using a couple of ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbons that were perfect for this masculine card. I used 1.5" Brown Netting . I like how it added a bit of texture to the background and then I used the Textured Two-Tone Brown/Antique Gold with a gold button in the middle.
I really like how this card looks rustic, it turned out really cool with the ribbons and paper together. And the deer photo coordinates perfectly with the Textured Two-Tone Brown/Antique Gold.  I just love that ribbon it's so pretty but adds a great touch to a masculine card.

  I used 1.5" Brown Netting as part of my background again. 
I think it adds a really nice texture to the inside of the card as well. 

Supplies: Really Reasonable Ribbons -  1.5" Brown Netting Textured Two-Tone Brown/Antique Gold
Paper: DCWV - The Rustic Stack; Ultimate Tag Stack
Ink: PowderPuff - Amareto
Stamps: Stamp in Up stamps that were in my stash

Here is my project using this awesome ribbon assortment

I created a little pumpkin decoration for my dining room table. 
 I cut burlap into about 2.5 x 2.5 squares, but I didn't really measure
I just cut to the size I thought would best fit around the 
small pumpkin. I used TH walnut distress inks on the edges of the 
squares and hot glued them onto the small pumpkin.

 I then took the 3/8"Diamond Satin Kiwi Green and 3/8"Checkerboard Satin Ribbon Tangerine  
hot glued them onto the sides of the pumpkin. I then took Wild Orchid flowers  
Open Roses Orange glued those onto the green ribbons. 
I created a bow with the 5/8"Square in Square print Satin Ribbon Tangerine  
using the Bow It All 3.0  then adhered my bow onto the pumpkin.  

For the stem of the pumpkin I used Baker's Twine Green Solid and wrapped 
it around the stem twice. I then took some more of those beautiful flowers 

Mixed Christmas/Seasonal Tuscany Roses 30mm using the brown & tan and I 
applied stickles - Champagne.

It's Turkey Time

Hi all, 

Hey, Hope you are all getting excited over the new Ribbon Club Assortment  - Colors of Autumn Assortment it's super gorgeous!! The colors are so vivid and just great for all your fall projects. :D 

Well I want to share with you all a cute little turkey candle holder I created using these beautiful ribbons. I created one of these about 2 years ago or so but it was different. I used the same concept for the front of the turkey but used the rosette technique with the ribbons instead of using feather. I think he turned out cute. 

So here is my little Turkey guy, hope you all like it. I know it's a bit different than the usual but I thought it would be a nice change. :D 

So to create the back of the turkey I cut out 3 1/2 , 3, 2 1/2 inch circles. 
I used score tape around the circles and then got my ribbons and
started the rosette only going around half way. I then used 3D adhesive 
to stack the rosettes on top of one another, in a layered look. I used my little 
scallop punch for the front of the turkey's body. Hot glued him to the small
mason jar. I used googly eyes and cut a beak and did a snood. 

I wanted to show y'all another close up of the turkey and the ribbons.
Here are the Ribbons I used 5/8"Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon Turftan Brown
5/8"Square in Square Print Satin Ribbon Kiwi Green5/8"Square in Square print Satin Ribbon Tangerine to create the rosettes for the Turkey's feathers. I also used the cute 

 Here shows a close up side view of the ribbons layered. 
I used the 1.5 inch Brown Netting to decorate the mason jar
which I wrapped around the  mason jar and then wrapped the 
I used hot glue to adhere both ribbons to the mason jar. 

Really Reasonable Ribbons - 5/8"Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon Turftan Brown
Paper - brown paper, craft paper, yellow paper
Accessories - Glossy Accents, googly eyes, mason jar, small scallop punch (fiskars),

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. Today we are starting a new challenge at One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes with Boxes and Bags. I invite you over to join in this fun challenge. You gotta make a box or bag and I would love to see your fabulous creations.

For this challenge I created a fun back to school treat bag using an image for the StitchyBear Digi Outlet Shop made by BBKakes - School 3 Frame. I thought it would be prefect for a back to school gift for a teacher. I filled the bag with little coffee candies, but I think chocolate would work too. lol

Hope you all like this and are inspired to create your own little bag for a back to school gift for a teach or two.
For this bag I used School 3 Frame by BBKakes.
I used Graphic 45 - An ABC Primer paper collection
I thought it would be perfect with the school image from 
the StitchyBear Digi Outlet Shop.  I used a couple of chipboard items
from the ABC Primer set. 

Here is a close up of the image I colored with
TH distressed markers. I used my copic markers
on the little apple. 
Ink: TH markers and distress inks tea dye

So here is my gift bag -
For this little gift bag I used Really Reasonable Ribbon 
Organza sheer ribbon in red & white. It was just the perfect match 
with this Graphic 45 Twas the Night Before Christmas paper collection.
I have some great close ups for you. 

Here is a close up showing how I took both ribbons and intertwined them 
together just a little twisting. I then took a brad put it through both of the ribbons 
and punched the brad through both sides of the bag. 

This photo shows you a close up of the red ribbon attached 
along the top edge. I did got all the way around using my Art Glitter Glue
as the adhesive to attach my ribbons and flowers
The red rose is from Really Reasonable Ribbon - Wild Orchid 

 Here is a close up of the bottom of the ribbon, it wraps around the bottom of 
the envelope. I also fussy cut the images from the paper collection. I just love
this paper collection so perfect for these ribbons.

Here is my card -  This little image is just lovely. In using this image I knew I wanted to break open my lemoncraft paper I have been hoarding since last year. lol  I just knew I had to use it for this image. As some of you know I am starting to color a little more with my Spectrum Noir Colored pencils and I have to say they did really well with this image. The pencils really add  a soft and dainty look to the image and card. I did fussy cut the butterflies from the paper collection and I used my Spellbinder dies - Romantic Roses. I also used some wild orchid flowers and pink seam binding.

Here is a close up of the little flower girl. I just love that bonnet
isn't it just precious with the dress? When I saw this I knew 
exactly what I wanted to do with this image. I just love how the 
pink and cream goes so well together. Just lovely against the green.
