Star Spangled Banner

Hello folks!  Cherry  here to share a card.  Summer is quickly approaching.  So they say anyways.  You wouldn't know it to look at our weather.  The 4th is in the horizon so I have another fun patriotic cutie to share.

A fun rosette paired with a hand glittered star ............

I used a patriotic blending of glory blue, white, and lipstick red seam binding.

Some fun old fashion images paired with a gorgeous silver flourish.  I also topped my ribbons off with a red cherry blossom flower.

 That is it for me..........................enjoy, Cherry

Using those neutral ribbons


Hello there...keeping this short and sweet!  Today is my day over at the RRR blog.  Sharing two cards with you.  First up a fun Bee card ready for someone's birthday.

I decided to make two very different cards using the same ribbon....that is why it is always good to have some neutral whites in your ribbon stash.  It will go with everything!  These cards use the checkerboard satin in off-white.  I also used a white cosmo daisy in the middle of my bows. 

My next card is just fun and whimsical.  I love this Graphic 45 paper collection.

Well that is it for me.....enjoy!  Hugs, Cherry

Really Reasonable Blog Hop!

 Hello folks!  It is time for a blog hop with RRR!  Hope you are having fun with us today!  You should have found your way here from Deborah's beautiful blog.  If at anytime you find yourself lost just start back at the RRR blog.  

This month's ribbons are devine!  They will get you in the mood for the 4th or for any patriotic project you might have in mind.

Here are my creations....full of the old glory spirit!   Hands down my fave color combo. 

I got a little extra glitter here and there, but I kinda like the way it lightly splattered across the card! 

 I love adding crepe paper to cards....adds so much dimension.   I actually used the Authentique cover that came with this paper had a cool patchwork look to it and I could not bear to throw it away.  That is also where the "Freedom" came from.  :)

 Next up is an Easter metal sign that needed a redo.  I got it at a local thrift store.  The neat "airmail" sticker came from the Kraft Outlet.  This gingham just makes me swoon....does it you?

I also used some Wild Orchid Craft cherry blossoms  in mixed aquas/blues along with a couple of the red Cherry blossoms.

That is it for me......I am off to the races...literally.  My son is competing in Track Districts on the Oregon coast!    See you all soon! Next stop for you is back at the RRR blog.   Cherry

Petaloo Mother's Day card

Hello Petaloo peeps!  Coming by today to share an oh so shabby card for Mom.  With Mother's Day coming up this would be a perfect greeting!

2016-04-13 039

I fell in love with the yellow burlap butterflies in the textured elements collection.  That was my inspiration for this card. 

2016-04-13 038

I used paper scraps, Canvas Corp pattern papers, and a few embellishments to add some black accents.  I think it adds a nice contrast and a bit of sophistication. 

2016-04-13 037

 For my sentiment I used a diecut tag that I hand stamped and a sweet fussy cut banner sentiment from Canvas Corps.  So what do you think?  Guaranteed to bring some sunshine to Mom?  I think so!

Soft and sweet

Hello.....time just flies doesn't it?  Mother's Day is not very far off.  I have a card to share with Mom in mind today.  Created for the RRR blog.  Really Reasonable Ribbon has some beautiful new blooms as you can see.  I love the pale blues/aquas in this collection.  Had to create something with them today!

I used Canvas Corp papers and sweet scissors along with some vintage aqua measuring tape snippets to pair with the flowers and the Bay Leaf Seam binding.  They all matched so perfectly. 

 I added a lady silhouette and a spool diecut wrapped with a bit of vintage laces.  I framed my silhouette with a diecut needlepoint frame for fun. 

Soft, sweet, shabby , and perfect for Mother!  Thanks for visiting!  Hugs, Cherry

Sewing pocket for Mom Canvas Corp style.

HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLO FOLKS!  Cherry here today to share my creation made for Canvas Corp.  They have a great write up over there about my project:

Cherry gathered a collection of sewing themed items from Canvas Corp Brands and created some spectacular cards that are perfect for Mother’s Day, for a special friend or maybe a sister who loves to sew.  No matter who will get the special card, we know you will enjoy working with these fun papers and embellishments to create them

I used many of the Heirloom collection papers in my project.  I used the tags handmade , which were perfect to tie my theme in.  I added in vintage sewing goodies as well for an authentic sewing theme.

Look at that gorgoeus bloom......they are one of my favorite goodies.  I layered it with a Petaloo bloom and antique rhinestone button.  This is the card that fits inside.  I created the pocket to fit a card along with candy, small gift, or gift card. 
            Here is the card that sits inside using vintage goodies along with fab canvas Corp.  

Well this is it for me tonight!  Please go check out the full post over at Canvas Corps...if you are interested in purchasing this creation , you can buy it

Nite nite, hugs, cherry
