Halloween Greeting Card

 Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a sweetly spooky Halloween greeting card.

I'm embracing the non-traditional color palate for this Halloween card with purples and greens.  I have layeres of fussy cut images paired with flowers and trims from RRR. That little bat is super cute!

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Welcome Autumn

 Welcome by again today, everyone.  Today is one of my posting dates for Really Reasonable Ribbon and I always enjoy making and sharing cards using their wonderful products.  No matter what stamps and die-cuts you enjoy, you're always sure to find the perfect embellishments for every card and project at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This will help to make all your projects POP with excitement.
I started with black cardstock combined and layered with some patterned papers and stickers from my stash.  Once I attached all the layers of paper using pieces of Scor-Tape to secure them, I added some washi tape and vintage scotch tape.  Next, I ran a length of Brown & White Gingham Ribbon across my card underneath the patterned papers so that it peeks out just a bit.
I attached several Green, Ivory and Oatmeal Double Head Stamens and then I tied a bow with the Brown & White Gingham Ribbon.  That's all topped with a lovely Coral Open Rose.  I just LOVE all the great products from Really Reasonable Ribbon that help gives cards more texture, color and pizzazz.
The gorgeous sentiment I used is from Bonnie Garby Designs, and it can be found in their Autumn Leaves Stamp Set.  I do hope that you'll visit the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog for lots of great inspiration and then check out Really Reasonable Ribbon for your AdhesivesFlowers, Ribbons and more.  And don't forget about the wonderful Bonnie Garby Designs where you can find awesome sentiments.  Happy crafting, everyone.

Pink Autumn Tea Party in a Box

Prima Hello Pink Autumn, Really Reasonable Ribbon, Kathy Clement, Shaker Card

 Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Fall is finally here!  My favorite season of the year!  So I'm celebrating today with a vintage style Pink Autumn Tea Party in a Box card.  Dressed up with Brown and Cream Tartan Plaid Ribbon and Pumpkin Baker's Twine, it is filled with all the gorgeous colors and textures of fall.  I'm thinking asters and pumpkins, crunchy leaves and steaming mugs of Pumpkin Spice Tea!

Really Reasonable Ribbon, Kathy Clement

I tucked a mini folio into the top of this fall beauty.  Then I created a sweet box pocket to hold a variety of tags and goodies you  might want to have at a tea party for one.

Brown and Cream Tartan Plaid Ribbon looks great on top of the cute die cut luggage tag, especially when tied up with a Pink and Brown Twist Baker's Twine Bow.  Do you ever use ribbon inside your cards?  It's one of my favorite tricks to add texture and interest to a card interior. 

I hope you are enjoying some glorious fall weather and lots of Pumpkin Spice tea whereever you are.

Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Treat Basket Box


Hello crafty friends, and Happy Monday to you all! Today's Treat Basket Box post was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the gorgeous satin ribbons from the Reasonable Ribbon shop.

I made 2 of these darling Halloween Treat Basket boxes for my grandkids, and will be doing another one soon. I will have a video on how I constructed my basket box up soon on my YouTube Channel here. So if you would like to see how to make the basket part and see how I Decorated it you can. 

I used Really Reasonable Ribbon on these in Checkerboard satin Ribbon ,
then I used the green Mini Swiss dots for the other basket I also used some Scor-tape, and foam tabs as well. The little Halloween images are from KaDoodle Bug and are SVG files. I did use dies to create may flowers and then straws as well. Super fun project to create.

Thank you so very much for stopping by and have a lovely day!

hugs to all, Cheryl

I Love Fall Most of All

I'm so glad you're here today, and I thank you for your visit.  It always fun making cards using ribbons, trims, and flowers. However, it's always extra fun when you can combine all that with another fab company for the sentiment. The card I'm sharing today does just that; as it features some of the FABULOUS products from Really Reasonable Ribbon combined with a sentiment from Bonnie Garby Designs.
This card started with a piece of ivory cardstock and I layered it with a piece of patterned paper from my stash.  I also cut the scalloped die-cut border using another patterned paper scrap.  I run a length of the Black & White Bold Check Ribbon down the left side of this card and tied a pretty bow with it.  At the bottom of the card, I added a Faux Pearl Accent and a Peach Open Rose.
The sentiment is from Bonnie Garby Designs and can be found in the Thanksgiving Sentiments Bundle.  I rubbed the sentiment with oxide inks for some color.  Underneath that pretty bow, I tucked several Double Head Stamens and on top of that pretty bow, I attached a lovely Magnolia Flower.  I also ran the bottom half of this card through the Cuttlebug with a Lumber Embossing Folder.
Thanks again for stopping by.  It's always a treat to have you visit.  I hope you will check out Really Reasonable Ribbon and Bonnie Garby Designs.  Whatever you're doing, I hope you're having fun and finding time to be creative.
