I used a glittery music paper, and added two felt hearts that I layered using a stitched die-cut.  On top of that, I added a big bow that I created with lots of great products from Really Reasonable Ribbon includin a length of Ivory Seam BindingBlack Seam BindingBlack Burlap String, and 3/8" Black Gingham Ribbon.  Then, I added some of Really Reasonable Ribbon's fabulous Mulberry Flowers including two Black Open Roses, a Deep Ivory Open Rose, and a 30 mm Green Mulberry Leaf.  They look so pretty, and are always the perfect touch to any project.
I hand cut a little banner from ivory card stock that I stamped in Black Soot Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  I added a couple of sequins here and there.  I just love how the gorgeous Mulberry Flowers lay so softly on the ribbons.  Adding these beautiful flowers, leaves extra embellishments add SO much texture and personality to your cards.

Cute & Spooky Card


Hi all,

It's my turn to be up on Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today. I am sharing the wonderful "Too Cute to Spoke Mix" from the Reasonable Ribbon shop. 
I made a cute little card with some Halloween paper I had in my stash from years ago. I am so glad I found this paper, it's so cute.  I used a cut apart sheet and cut out the coffin. I just love the cute Wonky Squares on White Satin Ribbon.  It looks great with this card. I also used the Bakers Twine Green in the black button. I also used the cute little Halloween Too Cute to Spook print on black grosgrain ribbon is adhered in the middle of the card.
Here is the inside of the card. So cute!  I thought this little card was perfect for this inside.
I used the 5/8" Gauze Print Satin Ribbon on the top of the cut apart card
and then used a black button with the Bakers Twine Green
Here is a close up of the bow I created using the 
Thank you for joining me today. I hope you were inspired to make a Halloween Card. We still have our Challenge #149 Things with Wings going and you have some time to join before the new one starts next week. That one one will a fun one!! If you want any of these scrumptious ribbons head over to the Reasonable Ribbon Store.

Wish you all a great rest of your week and Thanks for stopping by.

With Deepest Sympathy

Hi there ribbon lovers.  Today I have a sympathy card to share.  I find sympathy cards to be difficult to make and I like to keep them kind of simple.  I think this one fits the bill.  I topped the card off with a pretty bow I made with ribbon and string from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I was shooting for a CAS look, and for me this is pretty 'clean and simple'.  I did use multiple layers but I kept a clean background with the pretty leaf inclusion paper.  I stamped the sentiments and butterflies right on this artist paper.
The pretty die is the Cherry Blossom die from Cheery Lynn designs and I think it's perfect for this card.

For a video tutorial on how to make this simple Faux Bow, please click HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more information on other products used on my card, please visit my Make Time to Craft Blog.

Humble and Simple

{judy} I adore this little Christmas manger set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps  - Joy to the World. It is sweet and cute at the same time. It has three great sentiments that come with the manger, but I chose a word from the Words of Life 1 Collection

I wanted my card to reflect the humble beginnings of Jesus' birth, and didn't want the embellishments too fussy. The 1.5" Natural Jute Ribbon that Bonnie carries in the RRR Store was absolutely perfect for what I was looking for. It continues the idea of a rough manger, and complements the patterned paper.

There are five beautiful colors of this Jute Ribbon, and I love them all! Check out all the Natural Fiber trims and ribbons HERE.


Thanks for spending some of your day here at Really Reasonable Ribbon!

Gather Blessings Woodland Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  It's Kathy here with another fun card for fall. 


I just love the colors and textures of fall, so I added lots and lots of both to this card made with Authentique Harvest papers.  The combination of humble burlap, homespun  Debra crochet lace, and rustic brown burlap string with Copper Glitz Ribbon is a real winner in my book!




The belly band was created with Antique Gold wired edge Burlap Ribbon. This is no longer carried by RRR (insert moment of silence here).  BUT you could easily get the same great texture by substituting either Antique Gold Netting or Brown Netting.

Of course, I tied that bodacious Copper Glitz bow with the aid of my trusty Bow it All Tool!  It's a must have item in my studio!  To learn how to make the most of it in your craft space, you can subscribe to the Really Reasonable Ribbon YouTube Channel.  Bonnie has an amazing array of helpful tutorials there.

That's all for me today, my friends!  Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,
kathy

Magic..

Hi there Paper peeps....so long no chat!  Cherry here...  my day to share here at Really Reasonable Ribbon.   I created this snowman tag using plaid ribbon in the red bold check along with some lipstick red seam binding.  To hang the tag I wound some 3/8th shell print in red through the hole in my tag.  My background is just a glittered ornament....and a few doodads to make Miss Snow Lady oh so cute.


Isn't she adorable?  I love snow ladies.  Well folks.....enjoy!  Cherry
