If you Like my Project for this months Blog Hop Please feel free to visit the forum thread for vote and place you vote for me!! VOTE HERE
The very first ever Blog Hop is using ribbon as a focal point of our projects. Inspired by my friend Charlene's EXCELLENT entry for the GSS last month, which can be seen here. How does one come up with something like that? Pure brilliance Charlene, Way to go!!
Anyway, once I figured out that this was going to work, I made another one and attached them to my card with tape runner. That stuff is so good and I know that the ribbons are clinging on there for good. To Finish off the card, bringing the whole theme together perfectly I stamped the "RAH RAH" using SU's Soft Sky & Regal Rose (which again would have been lovely in the aqua mist and Sorbet) this create sort of a shadow effect. I then matted them and attached to the card. The inside of the card is complete with a computer printed sentiment that says "Have a "Cheer"ful Day"

I started on a Mellow Moss base followed with a textured Blush Blossom. Then I used textured So Saffron and the ink along with my CB folder following the instrucions from SCS. SO COOL!! Next I wrapped some double stitched guava ribbon around the saffron and applied the butterfly matte. Then I tied the little bow and applied it using glue dot mini's. Then using the Borders & Corners Mini, Out on a Limb & Mixed Messages from Papertrey Ink I made the little tag.
On the inside of the card I stamped "Birthday hugs & wishes" from Stampin' Up! and also stamped a half circle and the flowers on the tag, in the bottom right hand corner. Pictured on the right.
So I highly recommend checking out the Cuttlebug Technique, it is so awesome. Feel free to leave a comment here if you tried it with a link to your blog, I would LOVE to see what you create!! Have a SUPER weekend ad check back again tomorrow I will be updating with another new FAB card!!

Not Really going to go into detail today as it is 3:30 am in my world (if you are curious about anything, just leave me a comment and I will get back to you. I read ALL my comments) and I am "supposed" to be training myself to be in bed early so that I can get up earlier...you know kindergarten is coming in September and the Girls and I are, well, lazy. We sleep in every morning. So, so far no such luck in the training for me...HAHAHA...Have a great Day!!

Anyway, Thanks again Deanna I really enjoyed your card and Nichole and the team will reap some benefits as I now need, yes need to buy that stamp set when it is back in stock!
Now I am off to complete 2 orders, one of which includes something very lime green and flowery....Just fr the record, I HATE lime green so this can be a challenge...LOL. I may have to make some more RAK's to get the green out of my eyes. Have a great day.

After the fact I did change a few of the cards. I had made 2 small ones that said thinking of you which did NOT fit the rest of the set so i made more that said Thank you. So now they all say that. Also in this set is the Coffee Break Album for recording the New things and pictures for Baby's first 12 months. The accordian style origami book perfect for the pourse or great as a gift for Gramma. Then I made a little matchbook style post it not & pen. You never know as a busy mom when you may need to jot down some notes! Well i am "itchin" to do some stamping after having been at the Papertrey Ink Release Party s I need to go stampin'. If you have any questions leave a comment and I will answer it asap! Have a great week end!!

Well folks, that is all and say this...if you ever have the chance to help a friend and witness a really, truly and completely AMAZING experience..do it. I feel absolutely honoured to have been there. It is so different watching and helping and not actually being the one to give birth.

Ok, back to the card. I started this card using the Stamper's Select cardstock from PTI for the card base. Then I created the matte stacks using real red, pretty in pink and the polka dot print in wild wasabi from thre level 1 hostess print pack from Stampin' Up!
Next, I stamped one of the 6 cupcake bottoms in real read and the cupcake top in pretty in pink. There are 6 tops and bottoms that are all mix and matchable. (plus a ton of candles, sentiments and what not) So I matted the cupcake on pretty in pink added the 5/8 grosgrain ribbon in real red and finished off the card by stamping the cupcake on the inside corner aswell. I very seldomly find that I stamp anything on the inside allowing who ever is using the card to gear it towards whatever or whoever they need.
I hope you all have enjoyed my little card for the day, I will be posting another one tomorrow I think. I am off now to do some more work on my website...G'day!

These are supposed to be table confetti for weddigs, but as a card maker/scrapbooker my first thought was "who in their right mind would waste these on a table????" LOL so of course this pretty little container of pearl colored paper flowers accompanied me to the check out. I have no idea how many flowers are in here but there is A LOT! Not to mention the cute container that is totally alterable, all for a cheap (Canadian) price of $8.99. They are also on sale this week for 25% off. SO all in all not to bad.

I am not going to go into a whole lot of detail on this card as it is fairly straight forward, but I think my favorite element of this card is the home meade lily pad. The inside of the card says "Hoppy Birthday", naturally.
Supplies: PTI white cardstock, misc pattern paper, cuttlebug d'vine swirls embossing folder, prima flowers and leaves, stamps, ink and grosgrain ribbon from SU, oval punch and signo pen also from SU. Jeweled brads from Making Memories.
Thanks for having a peek at this one. If you have any questions please leave a comment or just stop in to say hello! Diana, Keep them coming!!
I started by cutting the DSP (afternoon tea from SU) 5.25 x 4 and applied the brown floral vine rub on from Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-bration catalog. Then I filled the center of my crocheted flower with one of the small stickers from SU's Simply Scrappin' Rose Cottage and then a pewter MM large brad. then I used another larger flower from the same kit as the back part of the flower.
Then I couldn't decided what kind of card to make it so I broke out the 'ol Sincere Salutations and picked the get well soon stamp. Stamped with close to cocoa on kraft and backed it on rose red and attached with dimensionals. Lastly, I used my cropadile to put on some jumbo eyelets from MM and tied simple pink grosgrain ribbon. On a white card base, I think this card really turned out beautifully, it is almost a shame someone has to be sick to receive this card.
I think that is all for right now because I have to get to bed, but check back really soon as my next posts will be very intriguing. I am preparing a post on my special find from Michael's and also another special request card. My sister in law keeps me thinking...she said birthday, purple, frogs. At first I was at a loss for what to do, but it turned out beautifully so be sure to stay tuned for that.
