Bow, Button, Ribbon Tutorial

Hello Y’all its Loriann here 
I put together a quick ribbon tying tutorial that I use
on my projects.
Please bear with me this is my first tutorial.
Step 1 –
Materials: 2 – 3″ long pieces of thicker ribbon
1 bow tied ribbon (smaller thickness.)
Button and Crochet thread 
(or small thickness thread)

Step 2 – After looping ribbon through the button,
 tie it to the backside of your thinner ribbon,
 leaving the excess. 
Step 3 – Flip your bow over on-top of the 
criss-crossed thicker ribbon and 
flip it over to tie another knot.

Step 4 – Use light, but firm pressure as you
 tie the back knot to ensure the criss-crossed 
ribbon doesn’t pull to one side. 
This is a view of what it will look like in the front… 
evenly cut the ribbon tails and still leave
 the long thread to attach it to your card. 
Final step: Punch two holes
 (I used the 1/8″ SU hand punch) and then tie the tails 
of the thread through these holes and tie
 a knot on the inside of your card. 
You can also use 2 strips of ribbon instead of 
another bow.
Here is the card completed using Dandelion Wishes
I hope that explains how I tie this type of ribbon!
  If you have questions or any
 other tutorial suggestions, just let me know!
Thankyou for stopping by.

Happy 4th of July!

I would like to wish everyone a
 Happy 4th of July, have a fun and safe holiday.
Today I’m going to share Sparkler Ellie from
The Paper Nest with you,
she is perfect for any 4th of July project, card, or
 scrapbook page. Plus you will see how I change it
 up some to make her for any occasion you want, if you have 
the imagination to do it.
I made the card shape like a star, used way to much
red, white and blue paper (I think I went a little over board)

Here are a few shots i took
up close so you can see the details
the flowers were handmade by me.

  One more of Sparkler Ellie
upclose if you can tell the
Background is a bit dark, I
colored it with V20 to give it
a darkness like if it was night,
not sure how if it worked.

The inside of the card I left blank to write 
whatever you want or add a sentiment 
from a stamp.
Now take a look at the sentiment it kinda fell sorry
but I changed it so she can be used for many 
things as I said before.
Thankyou for looking, and how a
wonderful week and holiday.

Summer Lovin’

Howdy y’all today I’m going to share with you Bikini Ellie
 from The Paper Nest. I thought she would be great for 
summer time. Bikini Ellie is SO dang cute. I colored her 
last month and could not wait to show her to y’all.
now was the task to narrow down all my 500 ideas. 
(that’s really hard to do)
I have all these things run though my head that will
look so cute like do  use beach paper, stickers, beach
seen, something from my cameo? this is how it goes 
with every project, I can never make up mind mind 
on what to do, and put it off till the last minute and then
it comes out bad.
I ended up doing this card twice, I hope I got it right the
 second time. I used lots of digi stamps. I always try
to create something a bit different not the same old thing everytime.
I made a step card and layered
it with beach background, sand and waves.
I used my cameo cut everything out, used bright and light colors together.
I hope you like it, come back soon.
Here is the first pic. I took a bunch so you can see all
the glitter and dimensions 

upclose are the wave and fishy.

side view so you can see the step card.

 Here is bikini Ellie she looks a bit dark in this pic.

This is the sun I cut out and used my pens on my 

I hope you can see how cute it is. I know the pics 
are kinda dark my light broke and have not had 
a chance to replace it.

Happy Father’s Card

Howdy Y’all it’s Loriann from
 I’m here share with you Owen Fishing, as soon as 
I saw this image I thought it would be great for a Father’s Day Card.
So off I go on what to make with the image, I always 
have so many ideas for things to be honest way to many
enough for 50 projects not just one. I’m trying to go with my first thought,
it’s hard because as us crafters go we want to make it all,
 Well I do!  
On to the card Owen Fishing image Was colored with copic markers.
The paper I used the solid colors are DCWV, the pattern paper scrapbook
paper I have had who knows how long sorry.
I cut all the embellishment with my cameo.
Side view
