Ellen's Easter Basket

Ellen (CardMonkey) here with yet another way to use your Rumple Ribbons ...

Here, I took an Easter basket die cut and wove the new delicious color called Rosebud through the upper edge of the basket. As Goldilocks might say, Rumple Ribbons are "just right" ... soft enough that they didn't tear my diecut as I thread it through the paper cuts, and firm enough to hold the pretty bow on the left.
Hop on by my blog to get more information on the various dies used. You can find me in the Jungle, at Eeek!


Stephanie shares the love ♥

Hey friends! Stephanie here today to take over the blog and share with you all my latest card.
My husband and I will celebrate 14 years of marriage next week, so I figured I needed to make a card for him! I have used the "Olive You" ribbon from the "On the Edge" collection. I love the versatility of this ribbon!!
You can see more on my blog at
Thanks for stopping by!!

Hi friends,

Dorcas here from Crafty Card Angel to share with you a quick card using the beautiful, bright and bold Caddy Blue rumple ribbon. I LOOOOOOVE this color. It's happy, isn't it?

The ribbon is used to break up the green and to add a pop of color. This was a super quick card that I made with scraps over the weekend. I think it's perfect as a gift for any occasion.

CT LoveBug Creations March Holidays Blog Hop

Welcome to the very first blog hop of the Creative Team of LoveBug Creations. Our theme for this two-day hop is March Holidays as March 2013 has both St. Patrick's Day and Easter as that month's biggie events, BUT there are others as well so get prepared to be amazed as to what's happening in March.  This hop will feature the newest LBC Rumple Ribbon Collection for spring with gorgeous splashes of color to inspire crafties no matter how you use ribbon or for what occasion.

Just in case you get lost, here's the complete LBC CT line up:


Mama LoveBug is up first - my Rumple Ribbon project actually shows off two new colors - Oh Darling and Gentleman's Jacket - On The Edge Collection; I fashioned a double bow for an Easter project - it's a double-sided stand-up card.  The digi stamp is a Sherri Baldy Besties Easter gal. There was a whole lot of fussy cutting here along with water color penciling and gel-pen/Stickles enhancements.  My Easter gal, Rumplelena, could be given as a card or be used as a centerpiece for an Easter table decoration.

Kimi here and I am so thrilled you are joining us today!! The Team has put together some amazing projects so make sure you stop at all the blogs on the hop!!!
For my project I wanted to make a center step card! I know you've seen these before but I've never made one! Wow...I may be addicted! Super easy and I love how it turned out! Here it is:
"May you find treasure at the end of the Rainbow"
I made the rainbow out of...what else...Rumple Ribbons! I so love how it turned out!!!
Here's the colors I used -
Red: Christmas Present
Orange: Autumn Spice
Yellow: Sunflower
Green: Green Leaves
Blue: Icy Sky
Purple: Sugar Plum
The paper is from a spring DCWV Stack I've had for years!! The little images on the "coins" I found online and the sentiment is computer generated! Hope you like my card and it inspires you to try something new!!!

Mama LoveBug & Dawn Rene's Sneak Peekaboo

Hi Crafties!  This is the LoveBug Creations CT Sneak Peek Week - (say that fast three times).......Each day members of the CT will showcase aka tease you with a specific color from our new Rumple Ribbon Spring Collection.  Since this is my shared blog (with daughter Kimi), I can let you in on the name of my ribbon color but for others on the CT, you need to check out their blogs for the scoop.

I actually made two sneakers (one is even wearing sneakers!!).  My first project is a bookmark but you could use it as a gift tag too.  I love to read, so I found this a useful project for myself.  My second project is a double-sided stand-up card for one of my besties at work.

My LBC Rumple Ribbon spring color is Oh Darling!
For the bookmark I threaded the ribbon and made a bow at the top; my focal image was a lovely heart from Loralie Designs; the sentiment is from a Dr. Seuss quote collection online.

For the sneaker girl I used a cutie from button girls by Treasure Box.
During the sneak peek week you can have a chance to win any two colors from the LBC Rumple Ribbon spring collection, but unfortunately, this blog candy has to remain in the USA.  So if you've a yen for some rumple ribbon, here's what you need to do:
1.  Become a fan if you aren't already
2.  Leave me a love note with a way to contact you

AND........mark February 23-24 on your crafting calendar and join the LBC CT for our first blog hop called March Holidays...........there's inspiration and blog candy for that event too........

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

Happy Monday!
Welcome to Day 2 of Lovebug Creations Sneak Peek Week. This is Dawn Rene Carlyle from Designs By Dawn Rene. I just joined the Lovebug Creations' creative team. I am very honored to be a part of the fabulous group of gals that get to play with the beautiful Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbons. This week we are highlighting the new spring ribbons that go on sale February 24th. I created this friendship easel card using one of the new ribbons for fun bow. Stop by my blog, Designs By Dawn Rene, to get additional details.

Smash and Marilyn with LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon

Mama LoveBug here - I love the TV show, Smash, and its Marilyn Monroe theme so I channeled Marilyn for some crafty mojo to create a double-sided stand-up card using Marilyn.  Her famous song quote - "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" gave rise to a switch of my own - Friends Are A Girl's Diamonds.

This Marilyn is a digi stamp from Simply Betty.  I printed her out twice, flipping in a horizontal pattern to get the front and the back.  Then I colored her with pencils, gel pen, and Stickles for highlighting.  I printed out my sentiment, fussy cut the digi and then adhered her to white cardstock and fussy cut her again per each side (a whole lot of fussy cutting going on here).  I made a little stand for her and then designed the double bow.

I made a double bow from our Rumple Ribbon for sweetie, Marilyn.  These ribbon strands were from one of the special Valentine collections - Red Hot Lovers Rumple Ribbon.

I hope you'll watch for our Sneak Peekaboo starting tomorrow - a huge number of new ribbon choices.  Also join us on February 23-24 for our very first Creative Team Blog Hop - March Holidays!! There'll be blog candy at both events!!

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

Happy ♥ Day!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Today is a day for love ... not only to recognize those people you love, but how about acknowledging some of those things you love, too?
I L♥VE paper crafting, I can't deny it! I'm a hoarder of all things crafty, and I will never stop. :) One of my very favorite things is the new Rumple Ribbons by Lovebug Creations.
Of course, Rumple Ribbons can be tied into a bow. But did you know you can make things out of your ribbon to work as embellishments on your cards or scrapbook layouts? For example, take a look at these beautiful Caddy Blue roses! To make them, just lay a line of glue along one edge of your Rumple Ribbon and roll and fluff the petals. Easy-peasy!
For more information on the products used to make this card, please check out my blog post earlier this week. I made this card for my daughter, Emily who is not only my FAVORITE daughter, she's my only child, so I can play favorites, for sure! Happy ♥ Day!
