My Romantic June with Really Reasonable Ribbons!

My Current Candy till July 15th here


Let's talk "ROMANCE" today!  I've played with more of the Really Reasonable Ribbon's Red, White and Blue's!  Using Dies and Sentiments only today instead ad of coloring!  The fabulous Lighthouse , wave border and Seashell Elements Shapeology Dies from Whimsy Stamps were perfect for a lovely Sea Side view.  Three pieces of my favorite 5/8" Red w/White stitches were attached and gathered in the center with a tab of glue, then three pieces of the Stars on Electric Blue Grosgrain were cut smaller and attached then gathered in half.  I popped on the button in the center then tied a bow with some Jute String White.  I found a wonderful little Etsy store called Craftpon with the largest selection of designer buttons in all shapes and sizes the other day and wanted to share with all my fellow crafters!  You won't believe the selection!  The beautiful blue speckled buttons were a perfect match for today's project!
I created a sandy look to the scene with some Champagne Netting, then "framed" the card with some Natural twine, pushed some Jute String Cocoa through the lighthouse and ran a strip of blue ribbon through the lighthouse base.  The background waves were die cut from the blue striped paper and the negative of the cut was used for texture and design behind the white stock.  It's a red, white and blue heavenly scene of complete romance.  I just need a little wine, hubby and a camera!  lol

  1. Hard to believe nobody else has commented on your awesome 7/4 card. It's really especially decorative. So many different parts to the elements of the card, you're very talented.
    I love to look at creations like yours but I've gotten too lazy to make them, I know shame on me cause I really enjoy paper crafts. I spend a great deal of my time reading blogs and doing projects.
    Is paper crafting your favorite medium? Do you craft in other areas? If you decide to reply to my questions please reply Happy summer

  2. HI sweetie this is just gorgeous, loving the colours, hugs Pops xxx
