RRR April Blog Hop and SWEET STUFF!!!!
Happy Wednesday and welcome to the April Blog Hop at Really Reasonable Ribbon! This is my last Blog Hop with RRR and I would like to thank all of my followers for the support you have given me and Bonnie's shop while I have been a member of the RRR DT. It always made me so happy to see so many of my faithful followers over on the roll at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings site!
If you have arrived here from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings site then you are at the right place and on the right track. If you have arrived here first, please start the hop at the RRR Ramblings so that you will know what terrific prizes await you this month. We were asked to use ribbons from the April Ribbon Club Assortment (which you will see in my SWEET STUFF below) and they are so absolutely gorgeous and are so very SPRINGTIME!!! You will find that several of the ribbons each month are unique to club members and are not available in the shop---one of the great benefits of being a member of the Ribbon Club and one of the reasons to join!!
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and the DP is from the Lilac Avenue Collection by Kaisercraft. All background panels were machine stitched. I used the absolutely darling LOTV Dandelion Clock,stamped her on Cryogen White, colored her with Copics and added touches of Prisma Glitter and Doodlebug Crushed Velvet, then cut her out with triple Nesties. For the horizontal I used 2 ribbons from the April Ribbon Club Assortment: 5/8" Lavender Diamond Satin and a tiny little yellow dotted satin. I made stacked bows using the Bow Easy Tool to dangle the lovely angel made with love charm which was made by the very talented Gunilla who has them for sale on her blog! The floral treatment is all from Wild Orchid Crafts: 45mm Open Rose, 25mm Open Roses, and Heather Stem Flowers. The front was finished with WOC Pearls .
The inside is very simple with a Magnolia Doohickey Vintage Tag stamped with a sentiment from the new LOTV Clear Additions Range which will be available in the LOTV shop on Thursday, April 14.
