Flower Challenge at RRR


Hey there Peeps! Time to start another fun challenge at Reasonable Ribbon. This time it’s a Flower theme which was a no brainer for me…because I put flowers on like everything! I created A Moment in Time Card….but I think it works better as a shabby chic display. Can’t you just see this on a shelf tucked in with some milk glass vases and old books?

A Moment in Time Card 1

Did I mention flowers?  Yes I do loose all control when I add the flowers because clearly more is better!!!

A Moment in Time Card 2

These gorgeous blooms are all Mulberry Flowers from RRR-Trellis Roses, Sweetheart Blossoms, English Roses, and Spiral Stamens.

A Moment in Time Card 3

I’ve done a fair amount of layering here with a lovely bow of Chevron Striped Twill in Champagne,  topped with an actual vintage button, and heat embossed A Moment in Time Chippie from Gypsy Soul.

A Moment in Time Card 4

I really added a lot of texture to this card by distressing the edges and adding texture paste with a flourishy stencil. All the layers have spacers between so this is very dimensional. For balance I added another small arrangement of flowers and twine.

A Moment in Time Card 5

My focal image starts with a Country Chic Frames digi collage from my very own shop. I added some chicken wire background papers and a lovely dragonfly diecut.  More chippies for this corner too…Tulip Scroll Corner and Number Plate.

Okay now it’s your turn to create something fabulous with flowers and link up with us to play along in the Flowers with Ribbon or Trim Challenge.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Cityscapes Masculine Greeting Card


Hey there Peeps!   I’m sharing a masculine card today created with Cityscapes from Graphic 45.  This new line  has some fabulous subway style sentiments that can be layered over the richly  colored paper patterns. I’ve chosen a subtle architectural pattern and paired it with a graphic stripe for this card.

I’m dropping in this morning to share  some fun projects I created with the new Saint Patrick’s Day Creativity Kit 2016.  I did create 8 projects….but I’m only sharing 6 since 2 are for the blog hop : ) I love a good tease!

Hey there Peeps! I’ve got some holiday lovelies to share. I was working with the new Vintage Easter Creativity Kit 2016 and layering all the yummy papers and images with my usual line up of flowers and frames and all kinds of seasonal embellies.  I usually post all 8 of the projects for the kit at once……but then I was all gah..that’s too much for one post. So here are the first 4. There will be loads more since I’ve only barely gotten into the supplies.
