November Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog Hop.

You should be coming from Debbie’s Blog.  After visiting with me, hop on over to Donna’s blog next.  To start at the beginning of the hop, and for a full blog hop list, go to Gloria’s Blog.

You will find a video tutorial for the mulberry flower ornaments below along with another video tutorial on how I created the pretty bow topper.

The ornaments were made to coordinate with the October and November Ribbon Club Assortments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
 
There is a special going on through the end of November for US residents to begin their subscription with the October/November combo pack for the special introductory price of just $17.00.

The October assortment has 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim and the November assortment has 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

The ornament below is the one I created in the video.  This one uses a little over 80 20mm Open Roses.  I think you could get away with four 20-packs with careful spacing.
I’m entering my ornament in the following challenges:

This ornament was created with one 100-pack of Sweetheart Flowers.  On this one I used the white with red center sweetheart flowers to coordinate with the October Ribbon Club Assortment, but any of the colors would be beautiful.
This ornament below was also made with 20mm Open Roses and this one was made using the color palette from the November Ribbon Club Assortment.
The ribbon ornament toppers below were made on the EK Tools Bow Making Template (which has been sitting on the shelf with all the other items I ‘had to have and never used’ for years) using ribbon from each of the Ribbon Club Assortments.  The centers were finished off with larger Mulberry Roses.  I have a video tutorial below on how to make these as well.

The Bells Still Ring For Those Who Truly Believe

Hi friends.   Today I’m sharing a pretty card using the lovely Christmas Bell die set from Cheery Lynn Designs along with some lovely ribbon from the November Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The pretty color palette for this card was inspired by the November Country Holiday Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

The November assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbons.

This bell set is so pretty!  I cut the bell die twice, once using a pretty purple/pink Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink paper I created and once in silver shimmer cardstock.  I then pieced in the silver accents.  The holly berries and leaves were added to the top of the bell.
The wonderful digital sentiment if from the Jingle Bells Digital Stamp Set from Graciellie Design.

May Peace Be Your Gift This Christmas

Hello friends.  Today I’m sharing a colorful Christmas card featuring the pretty Poinsettia Strip die from Cheery Lynn Designs and gorgeous ribbon from the October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I love the poinsettia die because it’s just so versatile.  Today I’m using some digital Christmas papers from Graciellie Design for some of the layers mixed with some red Distress Ink paper I created.  It’s a really interesting look.  I cut the layers of petals and shaped them a bit and then assembled.  I then added some greenery using the Pine Branches die.

My digital sentiment is from the Cheery Christmas Digital Stamp Set from Graciellie Design.The digital paper I used is from this Holiday Traditions Digital Paper Pack.
