Mama's Shout Out To The Robin's Nest & Ellen's Manly Birthday Card ♥

Good Day, Crafties!  Did you know that The Robin's Nest has some really cool sorbet paper and clear dew drops? With these products you can make some really awesome paper crafting projects!

Shop by (yes I said shop) The Robin's Nest HERE and check out some amazing things!!
-Blue Raspberry Glitter Sorbet paper
-Clear dew drops
-Sooooooo much more

Here is my project:

I used the beautiful blue raspberry glitter sorbet paper for my triple-stamped card and a piece of Kraft paper for the mats; I stamped butterfly images and flowers on Whisper White SU paper.  Next I punched out 2 butterflies and distress-inked them with a lighter blue and popped one on top of the other for dimension.  I adhered the clear dew drops from The Robin's Nest onto the the centers of the stamped butterflies and the punched-out ones and had fun using Stickles to add some glitz on these.  I finished off the Thinking of You card with a double-bow of LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon which you can see HERE

Just in case you want the triple-stamp dimensions so you can make your own card, here they are:
Dimensions for the stamped layers - 1 each
2" x 3-1/4"
3" x 4-1/4"
4" x 5-1/4"
Dimensions for the cardstock mat layers - 1 each
2-1/4" x 3-1/2"
3-1/4" x 4-1/2"
5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (fold for card base to get a great crease).......and have lots of fun stamping and decorating

Remember, no matter how you piece your paper and rumple your ribbon, have fun with it.......cybersorbet.........Mama LoveBug

Hi Rumple Ribbon friends! It's Ellen CardMonkey back with another card that features one of my very favorite accents: Lovebug Creations' Rumple Ribbon -- this one in "Eyes of Blue".

Do you have as much difficulty as I do coming up with masculine cards? I usually cop out and buy those cards -- the guys never seem to appreciate the time put into custom cards anyway. Or is it just my guys?? Well I have a friend who rides a Hog (Harley-Davidson), and I thought maybe he would like this ...


The outside of the card is fairly simple; that elegant blue edge is the Rumple Ribbon. I love how it blends with the Close To My Heart "Later Sk8r" paper. Inside, the motorcycle on the move actually pops up from the card when it's opened. Pop on over to my blog for more deets.
