Are you getting ready for Valentines Day? I love it...and everything it brings. Bring on the lovey dovey over the top corny. What better excuse to express your feelings? I have a fun Pink Persimmon card for you today. I used the mini bingo card stamping it in pink and coloring in the little flowers. There was a 14 on the bingo card and I wanted to bring it to attention so I framed it out with a scallop heart, a button, and some velvet leaves. For my sentiment I used one of the images from Little Red Wagon and inserted it into an index tab and added a row of buttons with twine. Other than that I added a good amount of seam bindings and topped it of with a sweet stick pin. What do you think? Kinda cute! Well it is almost 1:00 am....I need some shut eye! hugs, cherry

here. I was in an ultra shabby mood as you can see.
I used Christmas Story, farmers Fleamarket, and Huntington Gardens. I love to mix and match the collections. They all work so well together. I also used some of the gorgeous wood embellishments, pearl adhesives, laces, and inkable flowers from the store as well. I have been having fun lately adding feathers to some of my cards. Over the top ultra shabby and OH so fun. It adds an unexpected detail I think. Well ..hope your weekend was good. I am off to bed. Hope you enjoy! cherry

Hi ya'll! Popping in for a quick few to share a couple of goodies. I have fallen head over heels in love with Authentique's Valentine line. I swore to myself I would NOT buy anything new. NOPE nuttin doin. I did not need anything new....I have plenty of lovlies. Somehow or another...this line came home with me. I adore the color combo. I love black , reds, and creams together...my house is decorated in it for petes sake.
Anywhooos I have had so much fun creating a bit with it. I am a sucker for the ole images of children...and if there are puppies or kitties...swooon. The first is just a sweet card using the line and I added a couple of puffy velvet hearts for fun. The next is an altered plaque. I love creating them. Adding layers like buttons, tickets, hearts, and in this case a little pocket watch. The little details make me smile! Hope they do you too. Have a wonderful Thursday! Hugs, cherry

Hello Wednesday! And hello floral heart stamp....I love you! I found my new favorite stamp from here . Kinda has a sweet folk art feel to it. I used it to create my focal point, stamping it onto a diecut heart. I than colored the outer hearts in with a Tim Holtz distress marker for added detail. I used very little paper....choosing to use the Don't be Wishi Washi set as my pattern on the bottom. I than stamped the little mini heart from this set. I colored them in just like the floral heart and added some pearl jellie dots.
From there I added a bit of ribbons, mini vintage millinery flowers, and buttons. My last detail was adding my sentiment. I wanted something to balance out my heart so I grabbed my large xoxo stamp. Love the cute font. I think next time I use the heart I will glitter it....so many possibilities. Well....I am out of here! I have laundry to fold. Thanks for letting me share. hugs, cherry

Sometimes you just have to wing it. At least I do. I knew I wanted to create something so I kept going.
I think I kinda like the outcome. I know it did my heart good.
I think I am to hard on myself sometimes and forget to just have fun. Anyone else like that?
Thanks for letting me ramble on today! I hope you enjoy what Did get done! hugs, cherry

Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings
Saturday, January 12, 2013
ribbon ever. I am a sucker for polka dots. I diecut some fun papers and layered them and added my owls with a few little buttons....including leaf ones I found in my stash. I used sentiments from this set and tied them on with some cotton candy twine . Topped them with buttons and was done. Would be perfect for the kiddos or as a Valentine treat with candy inside for someone's favorite teacher. Hope you enjoy! hugs, cherry

Happy Wednesday to you! I have been having some blogger problems so bare with me. I created a fun, rather funky little card today for The Rubber Cafe. I first stamped the Heart Strings stamp onto my cardstock and than stamped it again onto some pattern scraps I had in pink hues and cut them out. I than inked them up and gave them a bit of chunky glitter and laid them aside. I than stamped the Don't be Wishi Washi set onto some scrap white cardstock in pink and kraft ink and fussy cut them out. I inked them a bit as well. When I was done I had 7 washi tapes cut out. I ran my cardstock through an embossing folder and got to work layering my washi pieces on top of one another randomly, both at the top of my card and the bottom. For added detail I wrapped a bit of twine around some of the washi pieces and hung pink safety pins with diecut little hearts hanging off. I added my sticker sentiment and a chipboard postage frame to add importance to the sweet heart strings stamp (I just love this stamp). From there I used my Scrap Happy glue to adhere my hearts to the banner and added some cute little jellie dots for detail. My last step was to fold back my top and bottom corners of the card and staple them. I love the shabby funky look this has!
