Ruby Rock-It

Creative Cards with Bolt

by Teresa Horner | February 20, 2016
There is a brand new paper line out this month for Ruby Rock-it and if you love sewing or have pages to do for all those crafty people in your family then you will love it.  It's called "Bolt" and it's filled with cute little prints that are sewing inspired.  Today it's "Creative Cards"day so i thought i would share some fun cards that i did with the new stitching stamp and the papers.

For my cards i used bits of the paper and lots of the die cuts layered over the top of each one.  These were super fun to make.  I love the ruler paper and the buttons and the colors on each of the prints are so bright and cheerful.  For the Life is good card we also have a new stamp that coordinates with the papers.  There are 3 styles of stitching it so you can stamp the stitching on your cards in any color that you like.  I love that idea and you don't even need a sewing machine !

Here is a closeup of my favorite card i did this time.  We also have water droplets that come in the set with pretty shades of pink, green, gold and i used in pink for the back round and on the bow.  It adds the perfect amount of shine to it.

And for this card i used the printed aqua paper for the base and then layered on simple strips of the ruler paper and the coordinating printed papers.  Then i stamped a stitch at the top and bottom in black ink and finished it with a golden die cut heart and that gorgeous butterfly in aqua.  All it needed with a simple gold cord bow and it's all done and ready to mail out.

And for this one we have some brand new corrugated papers that even come in gold.  How fun is that to use for projects?  I matted a small piece of white over it and then added two of the printed triangle banners up and down and then over that 2 butterflies and then finished it with 3 of the gold chipboard buttons that come in the set.  The clear golden water droplets gave it the perfect bit of shine.  Its' fun to try something way out of the box and you never know what you may end up with.... 

And lastly for this card i used just some bits of the paper to make strips to go across a simple kraft card.  Then i layered one of the spools from the die cuts and added a few chipboard buttons.  Of course it needed some lace so i cut a small piece from the Bella Bling set and glued that on.  Then i found this really cute saying in the wood veneers "Love is the Thread that binds us together" and it worked just perfect.  I love this set since i love to sew myself and can think of a million things to make with it.  I hope you all do too!!  
Enjoy your day and have a really wonderful weekend!  Cheers!
