Cute & Spooky

Hi all,

It's my turn to be up on Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today. I am sharing the wonderful "Too Cute to Spoke Mix" from the Reasonable Ribbon shop. 
I made a cute little card with some Halloween paper I had in my stash from years ago. I am so glad I found this paper it's so cute I used a cut apart sheet and cut out the coffin. I just like the cute Wonky Squares on White Satin Ribbon looks great with this card. I also used the Bakers Twine Green in the black button. I also used the cute little Halloween Too Cute to Spook print on black grosgrain ribbon is adhered in the middle of the card.

Here is the inside of the card. So cute I thought this little card was perfect for this inside.
I used the 5/8" Gauze Print Satin Ribbon on the top of the cut apart card
and then used a black button with the Bakers Twine Green

Too Cute To Spook Headband

Hello all,

I have something to share with you all today. I tried something new with ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbons. I have been wanting make a headband for many many months but just a little nervous to do it. You know Bonnie, who is the owner of Reasonable Ribbons, she makes headbands all the time and they are just beautiful. Well I followed one of her videos and she makes so easy to create one of these fun headbands I had so much fun. Of course I need a little more practice but I thought for my first one it was pretty good. I made this headband for my granddaughter Reminie, she's been talking none stop about Halloween, being 2 years old this will be a fun time. I think she'll like the headband. :D

I used the wonderful Too Cute To Spook Mix it's the September Club of the Month Assortment.

Your Invited For Cake

Hi everyone!

Well today I have a new challenge for you all at One Stitch At A Time Challenge 271 Anything Goes with A Special Day. Come over to join us with all your cards showing how you create a card or project celebrating A Special Day.

For this wonderful challenge I used a digital stamp from the StitchyBear Digital Outlet Store Wonderland Cake designed by CraftyGirl Creations
When I saw this stamp I just knew what paper I wanted to use with this stamp Graphic 45 - Hallowe'en in Wonderland Collection, I really think it goes perfectly. 
I decided to do something a little different something a little off from my 
usual using fun colors with my copic markers.  

 Here is a closer look of the stamp and the background of the Tag. I used some fun
items to create my background Tim Holtz distressed paints and inks, BoBunny black gesso
with TH stencil Harlequin and BoBunny Grape Glitter paste. 

Here is a close up of the stamp. 
Applied Glossy Accents to nose and clock. I also used black liquid 
pearls applied around the cake and the gold liquid pearls are applied
 to the chain that links to the clock.

Monthly Ribbon Club, Domestic

I couldn't help myself when I saw this ribbon assortment I had to make a Halloween Wreath. 
For center of my wreath I used an old Halloween window decoration
I had for years. It like a sun catcher, you put it in the windows and it 
shines pretty like stained glass. But this is made from plastic. I glued it 
down in the middle of the wreath. 

Here is a close up of the the wreath. 
I added lights to back of it. 
To make the wreath I wrapped Black Satin w/grosgrain edging around the
wreath first then I wrapped the Gauze Print on Grape Satin Ribbon. I then tied
all the ribbons around on top of the black and purple ribbons. I did double
up some of the ribbons.  Aren't these ribbons so adorable and beautiful? 
They are just perfect for Halloween. 

Supplies I usedSeptember's Ribbon Club Assortment Too Cute To Spook Mix.; 5/8 Satin with Grosgrain Edge Black
From My Stash - Grapevine Wreath, plastic Halloween window decor and lights.

Hope you all are having a great time hopping along to all the Blogs.

When a Bell Rings....

Happy Sunday Morning!

I hope you all are doing well. Things are going good here. I have a new card to share with you all this wonderful morning. One Stitch At A Time New Challenge 270 Anything Goes with Lace and/or Pearls. I invite you to join us for this wonderful challenge showing us some of those beautiful laces and pearls you got in your stash.

For this card I used the sweet image created by Digi Blessings - Angel Bells.
Isn't this image just so sweet? Cute little mouse ringing a bell, and the 
sentiment is just perfect. I used Spellbinders Fancy Tags for the sentiment 
with stickles mercury glass and a couple of pearls. 
 To create the frame around the image is Spellbinders Majestic Labels 25.
I used a little gold cord to tie up the bell, so the mouse looks like he is 
pulling the ribbon to ring the bell. I also used stickles crystals for the bell, 
mouse wings, and halo. To color the mouse I used my spectrum nior colored pencils. 
The paper is the beautiful Authentique Classic Christmas. (I showed this paper
in one of my DT Haul Youtube videos)
For the embellishments I created a lace rosette and a lace border using pearls
that are placed along the top of the lace.

Accessories: Pearls, red button from stash; stickles crystals, mercury glass; Spellbinders Majestic Labels 25; Spellbinders Fancy Tags; Gold cord; White Flat Scallop Crochet Lace from CountryCraftCreations
