Really Reasonable Ribbon September Blog Hop

If you are looking for my Graphic 45 Christmas cards, please click HERE and HERE.

Good morning, Blogger Peeps! I am guest designing for Really Reasonable Ribbon again this month and it is time for the September Blog Hop

You should be coming to my blog from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog. (For the complete blog list, scroll to the bottom of the post.) After visiting me, hop over to Ginny's Blog next! 

Here is a peeky at the RRR September Ribbon Club Assortment

I love this cute and spooky ribbon pack! I plan to order more of that amazing orange plaid!

It is not a secret that I have a vast hoard of Graphic 45 paper, including all the Halloween collections! I pulled them all out to create this orange and black Halloween mish mash card! Anyone remember that song...about the Monster Mash? That's what I was thinking of when I created this messy masterpiece. {grin}

I tied a bow with the orange plaid with black stitching ribbon from the September Club, and then topped it with a chipboard "charm" and a loopy bow made from black burlap string

I sneaked in a bit of the spiderwebs with black grosgrain ribbon as well. I was inspired by the spiderweb ribbon, which made me pull out an older set of Papertrey Ink dies and cut some webs!

I also purchased a set of word dies a few years ago. I cut the Trick or Treat sentiment from black cardstock, and then cut it again out of orange print paper. I used just the "or" from the printed paper. Cool, right?! My friend Jacquie shared this technique with me ages ago, and I still find the idea of "nested die shapes" fascinating. It is a great way to make the same old die look a bit different!

I stamped the inside of the card with my new Graphic 45  Rare Oddities stamps!

Thanks for stopping by today! Now, hop over to Ginny's Blog next!
