Christmas Star by Jenn Cochran

Hi Really Reasonable Ribbon friends and fans!  It's Jenn and I am so not ready for Christmas.  Are you???  I know it is coming fast and I need to get my mind set and ready to go.  

I wanted to give this fun star wreath a try.  It was super easy and only took about 15 minutes.  I paired the wreath with a beautiful delicate stitched satin ribbon.  I will run down the instructions below.

I used a 1" size star die.  I cut out 8 of each patterned paper to be on the safe side but only used 7 of each.  I cut out a 2.5" circle and cut out the middle to make a ring.  I added CANDi Fix Foam Pads (found at RRR) to the backs of each star.  I arranged them and then took the foam pad backings off one at a time and adhered it to the ring.  Voila, a star wreath!  Hope you will try it!  

I used Delicate Stitched Satin in Kiwi and tied a simple knot.  It was the perfect color of green to go with the swiss dot green patterned paper.

Do you make your own Christmas Cards or do you opt for the ever popular photo cards?  I personally do the photo cards.  This year I will do the same, just making them myself. 

Thanks for taking a peek.  Hope you try one of these simple wreaths on your next Christmas Card.

Fall is Time to be Thankful...

With fall finally getting here it's always time to be Thankful for everything in our lives.  Today I am doing a quick share with a card and little goodie box I did with some gorgeous fall ribbons and Graphic 45 papers.
For my projects I chose some of the "Seam Binding Ribbon" in burnt rust and "Tuftan Brown Satin", "Brown Plaid" and my new favorite 3/8" inch lace called "Gabrielle" in ivory. The papers are a mixture of Graphic 45 papers I had in my stash but most of it starts with the cut outs for the Calendar pages.
I really love how this one came out.  The colors are so rich and pretty and the ribbon reminds me of the color of pumpkin pies so it was perfect to use.
For my box I used a Scor-pal and created a pizza box that the top post card tag would fit onto.  It's fun to make custom boxes and you can fill them with lots of fun surprises for the person you are giving it to.  For this I also used the seam binding ribbon and that pretty little lace I was telling you about.
Lastly I made up some quick tags to go on some kraft bags I have to fill with goodies to give.  The prints are so pretty and the ribbons go perfect with Graphic 45 papers.

Thanks so much for stopping over and have a really great day!!

Bewitching Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!

Have any of you had a chance to play with the Rare Oddities collection from Graphic 45 yet?  I stole a few moments the other day, and found some bewitching Really Reasonable Ribbon and trims to go with this spook-tacular collection.  I waved my magic wand, and the next thing I knew there was a frightfully fabulous shaker card sitting on my desk.  (If only it worked that way, Ribbon Lovers....if only!)
I love the beautiful prints in this collection and really wanted to pull out the purple and gold hues.  Naturally, I called upon ribbon to do all the heavy lifting for me. This Plum Diamond Satin Ribbon looks fantastic with these papers, doesn't it? I super love the way the diamond pattern in the ribbon complements the plaid background paper.
I created my layered bow with my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool.  The bottom layer has 3 loops and the top one has 2.  I pulled all the loops out and "fluffed" them to make it look really poufy.  This ribbon is easy to work with, has a nice finish and ties boo-tiful bows!
After cutting a 3" piece of Old Gold Shimmer Satin Ribbon, I cut fishtails on each end.  It was folded in half, touched with a spot of hot glue to hold the fold and then glued on top of that luscious Plum ribbon.   this was topped with a loopy gold metallic string bow.  The finishing touch was adding that gorgeous Earth Tone Trellis Rose.   I have totally fallen in love with these beauties, and they come in a ton of colors!
While digging through my stash of embellies, I stumbled upon these cool paisley ribbon slides.  I added more of that sparkly Old Gold Shimmer Satin Ribbon and glued them on either side of my chipboard sentiment.
The fun thing about a shaker card is that it's like getting a party in a card, and both the inside and the outside are fun to look at.  I have to say....this bewitching ribbon and paper combo makes this Ribbon Lover happy, happy happy!

Thanks for stopping by!

Joy and Hope..

Happy Monday!  I'm sharing a couple of cards with you today here at  Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I have been  bit by bit bringing out my Christmas goodies.  I finally broke down and played around a bit.  I used papers from Raspberry Road Designs.  These are very simple cards using diecuts, stamp sentiments, and wood cut outs from my stash.  I used moss green seam binding, burlap string, sharon crochet lace, and white crochet lace  from this month's ribbon club.  I like the simple folksy look of them.   If I keep this up I will have a good stash by the time Christmas rolls around.  Hope you enjoy!  hugs, cherry

Giving Thanks

Hi there crafty peeps! Amber here, and I am back today to share a Thanksgiving layered card I made with some of my supplies and ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store

I started by creating a center panel with cardstock and Fall patterned paper from Fun Stampers Journey.  I stamped the wreath from my Grateful Heart ATS stamp and colored the berries with Raspberry Berry and Tangerine True Color Fusion Ink and Fusion Blender from FSJ.  I then stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with some gold embossing powder.  I colored the "grateful" in the sentiment with the same Tangerine ink.  I fussy cut the wreath and sentiment out and popped them up with foam tape on the panel.

I wrapped the panel with the natural colored hemp cording from the Bright Hemp set.  I also created my single loop bow with this as well.  I then covered a 3.5x4in card base with more patterned paper.  I wrapped some Turftan Brown Satin with Grosgrain Edge ribbon.  I adhered the panel to the base and added Journey Glaze to the berries on the wreath.  As a final accent, I added some Doodlebug Gold Sprinkles to the upper and lower corners of the card.  I hope you enjoy the card, and it inspires you to make some cards to give to your loved ones at Thanksgiving.  Have a great day!

Give Thanks

Hello ribbon lovers and Happy Saturday!  
Today my card uses some of the unsung heroes from Really Reasonable Ribbon for embellishing Autumn themed cards.
I've used Natural Mesh Ribbon across the center of the card under the sentiment.  The ivory color would work as well.  The ribbon is really strings of fibers which are held together with a thin monofilament.  I simply unraveled the monofilament until the strands were loose up to the edge of the sentiment panel.  This gives the look of adding several strands of string, evenly spaced beneath the sentiment panel without the hassle!
This rustic bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0 in less than a minute.  Really!!  I just figure eight wrapped the Cocoa Jute String around the pegs until I had 4 loops on each side.  When tying my knot I wrapped the center string around two extra times to make a wider center for the bow.  That's it.  To see a video tutorial for a similar bow, please click HERE.
It's fun to experiment with unique ribbons and trims.  What are your favorite styles from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store?
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more information on the other products used in my card, please visit my Make Time to Craft Blog.
