Have a Swell Day

Thanks for stopping by the Really Reasonable Rib bon blog today, everyone.  We always appreciate your visits, and always hope you're inspired by the art we share using some of the fabulous products found at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I love using up old patterned papers from my stash; and by adding a few simple trims and some pretty flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon, it quickly becomes an extra special card.  Just look at what these two trims did for this card:
Once I had my patterned papers together and in place using my Scor-Tape Adhesive, I added a length of Color Band With Stitched Edge (in Tan) and used some delicious Cotton Candy Baker's Twine to wrap around my card several times and tie into a bow.  I did ink the edges of my patterned papers (which I almost always do), and I added a couple of stickers.  On top of my Cotton Candy Baker's Twine bow, I added a White Flatback Pearl.  All around that, I added several sweet Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms.  I used a pastel assortment that is currently out of stock, but there are miniatures in stock and they are beautiful!  I love adding them to my cards for an extra sweet kiss of cuteness!
Really Reasonable Ribbon has SO MANY great trims and trinkets to quickly adorn your next card or project.  I encourage to stop by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop to see for yourself what I mean when I always that they "truly have it all".  I know you'll find something you absolutely LOVE, and that will make your next project amazing.  And....don't forget about the fun challenge taking part now on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.

Have an amazing and creative day.  You're welcome to stop by my blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to get a few more product details.

Family Heritage Layout

Hello ribbon lovers.  I am sharing a family heritage layout using beautiful ribbons and flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  
I tied a bow using the Leather Tan Seam Binding. I glued the Wild Orchid Open Rose Mixed Pink Tone to the layout and added a little glimmer to the rose tips by adding glitter glue.
I added Juliet Lace at the top of the layout to complete.
I hope you enjoyed a little family heritage layout inspiration.
Wishing you a create day, dear friends.

Wonderful Friend

{judy} Good morning ribbon lovers! Today I have a monochromatic card (almost!) to share with you, using some of the gorgeous Shimmer Satin Ribbon that Bonnie carries and a little touch of bling!
I used all sorts of teal and aqua shades in my inks and paper, and added another shade for my ribbon, using the Aqua Shimmer Satin. I love the sheen of this ribbon, and it comes in so many beautiful colors!

The silver metallic butterfly adds its own sparkle in the light, and I set that off with one of the pretty Rhinestone Ribbon Sliders in the RRR Store - the 18mm round slider.
Images and dies by Stampin' Up! I love the elegance that the ribbon sliders add - fast and easy! Thanks for stopping by today!

Ribbons and Flowers and Butterflies, Oh My!

Hello Ribbon Lovers!  Have you started your Easter cards yet?  I just enjoyed one more play date with my Spring Rainbow of Color Ribbon Club Assortment and made the sweetest Easter card.


This Grape Satin Swiss Dots Ribbon is just perfect for springtime and Easter!  Especially when you pair it up with pretty papers and chippies from Graphic 45's Sweet Sentiments Collection.  It performed double duty on this card, serving as both the belly band and the triple loop bow.

 After tying my bow with my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool, I topped it with Ivory Burlap String and a stamped and colored butterfly.  I love the way the ribbon pulls out all the beautiful purple flowers in the paper collection.


The inside of the card has two pockets, both filled with sweet treats.


The top pocket contains a little handmade button card, all dressed up in its Easter best.

I filled the lower pocket with a tag that I made using bits and pieces that were on my work table.  Oh, and candy...because it's Easter, you know?

Thanks for stopping by!
Cheerio,
kathy

Simple and Elegant Card with Ribbon Slider

Hi friends! Linsey here and I hope you're having a great day! Today I've made a super easy and fast, yet strikingly elegant card to share with you. It took all of 5 minutes to make and can be easily altered with any RRR of your choice to create a custom look for a special card or handmade invitation.
I chose the absolutely gorgeous 7/8" Aqua Double Faced Satin Ribbon to feature on the front of my card. I love this color SO much. To really make it look fancy, I slid my ribbon through a round 18mm Bling Metal Rhinestone Buckle Ribbon Slider which is one of the 6 piece Bling Metal Rhinestone Buckle Ribbon Slider Assortment.  To finish, I added a simple word chipboard piece popped up on a dimensional adhesive dot an 3 silver fancy sequins. That's it! This is a design that would be great for making multiples of the same card/invitation because it's so simple and requires only a few supplies. Plus, the Rhinestone Assortment has 6 unique bling pieces for only $2.89 so you can make 6 stunning and sophisticated cards that look like a million bucks, but aren't. That's a lot of beautiful bang for your buck!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you've been inspired to create something beautiful with Really Reasonable Ribbon today! Happy crafting!

Easter Wishes

Hey there ribbon peeps!  My day to share a project made for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  
 I decided to use this sweet image from Crafty Secrets finally.  Perfect for an Easter card.  I used some neat chipboard pieces and painted them and used them as my base.  Then I layered my card and adhered vintage millenary flowers around the whole image. 
I then tied my bow using the purple/white lattice in satin and added a bit of purple seam binding,
I added a flower and a stamped banner and was done.   Thanks for visiting! Cherry

Floral Layout

Hello everyone, and Happy Friday to all!  Cheryl here today with a beautiful layout of my Grandma I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful shimmer satin, and embellishments. I LOVE how this layout turned out!!
I truly miss my Grandma, she was such an inspiration.  Not only was she my Grandma, but a Mom, Best Friend, and someone who would listen to what you had to say, and never was negative about it. Always tried to cheer you up when things were down and have you look at the brighter side of life. Wow how I miss hearing her voice and spending time with her. She was so loving, and spent her time with you.  We always enjoyed having my grandma come stay at our house for the day, have dinner, and then hubby or I would bring her home. All the sweet memories I have , I will cherish forever! Love you Grandma!!!!

Anyway, now that I have tears, I best move on to my layout! I chose these 3 photos of my Grandma. One was from when she was little baby(1917) and then next I'm not sure what age she was. But the last is from when we had photos done in 1991.  We did a 4 generation photo.  I just cut off the rest of us to make this layout just of my grandma. All photos were copied in black in white years back, and now are being used, so happy for this!

I ended up printing out the borders from the Delft Digital set, backed them with the dark blue from Boardwalk Club Kit, and then added blue sewing to each. The tag that I cut in half for this layout I just love.  It's absolutely beautiful, and there is room for writing.  I just LOVE the printouts of these, and love how they look on my layout for today.

The yellow background design paper is from the Delft Deluxe Kit. I also used the stencil from this collection to use on the background of the photo mattes for each photo.

Flowers were cut using white card stock, and then airbrushed using a blue and yellow Copic marker and my air compressor. I added some flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon to the centers of each Daisy. Dies used are from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Bows were created using Really Reasonable Ribbon's Blue Shimmer Satin.  The center pieces are from their clear rhinestone embellishments.

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, as I truly enjoyed creating this beauty.  Please let me know what you think, as I always love reading your comments!

Hugs to all,
Cheryl
