Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop and Sew Many Challenges!

RRRBlogHop[4] Blog Banner ii

Welcome to Really Reasonable Ribbon’s blog hop showcasing some stunning and spectacular projects created by the awesome and talented Design Team.  The Design Team will be showing a variety of fun and unique ways to use different types of ribbon on all your projects.  No project is complete without ribbon!  Now if you have arrived from Robbie’s blog, you are in the correct spot.  If not, I would hate for you to miss anything so please start at Really Reasonable Ribbon’s blog.  You will be seeing some absolutely gorgeous ribbons, trims and embellishments that can be used on any project you may be creating.

I will also be giving away some blog candy.  A package of 10 beautiful ribbons that are a yard each and some ribbon flowers I have created.  So, what do you have to do, you’re wondering?  You can become a follower of my blog (optional) and leave me a comment.  Next Monday I will randomly choose one lucky person’s name to win the blog candy.  Good luck everyone and have fun.

For my card, I not only designed it for Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop but also for Sew Many Challenges.  The challenge this week at Sew Many Challenges Tiffany Doodles is their sponsor this week.

Here is my card using Tayla in Love from Sew Many Cards:

SPONSOR INFO:

Hi!  I’m Tiffany Richards, owner of TiffanyDoodles.  I’m having the time of my life doing what I was born to do!  My background is in Wed Design and Photography.  I have been self employed for eight years and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my work!  Since childhood, I’ve always been creative and taken great pleasure in drawing and painting.  About a year ago, I discovered the stamping and paper crafting world and just fell in love!!  In a very short order, I began transforming some of my drawings and doodles into “digis”.  It has truly been a joy to share them with folks.  I get so thrilled every time I see something new that someone has created with one of my stamps!!  Each design is like a child of mine and it’s really neat to see it all grown up and out in the world being all it can be…LOL!

All of my digital stamps are originally created by me and of the multiple styles I offer, most are hand-drawn images.  Some are brushed up in Photoshop using the pen tool to produce very clean lines and others are left with a sketchy, rustic, hand-drawn look.  An additional digi-style is one that I’ve dubbed as PhotoSketches and these are images from my own photographs which I transformed into sketches with a little help from Photoshop. These beauties make splendid realistic images for stamping!

One of the ways that I wish to say “thank you” to all of the folks that follow TiffanyDoodles is by offering a brand new Freebie every Thursday.  I’ve received a hefty response from this which has encouraged me to continue creating even more!! 

I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to make these daily artsy expressions that others enjoy.  It is a ton of fun to have this creative outlet where I also get to meet other crafty people like myself.

Here is my card using Poppy Oval from Tiffany Doodles:

Poppy Oval

Digital Image:  Poppy Oval from Tiffany Doodles (colored image with Prisma color pencils and OMS).

Sentiment:  Happy Birthday Mom sentiment from The Cutting Cafe (All About Mom set).

Card Stock:  Green, black and red (TAC) and print (Colorbok – Earth Tones).

Die-Cuts:  Nestabilities Circles/Scalloped Circles and Ovals/Scalloped Ovals.

Punches:  EK Success Leaves punch.

Embellishments:  Inkssentials Glossy Accents (around oval edge of image), Black Fun Flock (center of poppies), red half pearls, 3/8” Black Velvet Ribbon, 5/8” Echinacea Hand-Dyed Silk and 5/8” Red Sheer w/Satin Stripes (petal ribbon flowers).  All ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win the blog candy!  Hope you’re enjoying the blog hop.  Stop by Sew Many Challenges and enter their challenge for a chance to win some digital images from Tiffany Doodles.  Have a fabulous weekend!
