Rainbows + Stars = A Magical Day!

Hello there! Linsey here today sharing one of my favorite recent cards made featuring fabulous ribbons from RRR! I love rainbow colors and I also love stars, so this card came together like magic!
I made this card using the ribbons from the Bright Colors Grosgrain with Silver Metallic Edges Assortment. Space ribbons and graduate each piece about a 1/2" further than the next. Add 3D foam stars with rainbow craft foils and glitter on top and adhere to ends of each ribbon. Add stamped sentiment, attach to card base and done! The silver metallic edges of the grosgrain ribbons coordinate perfectly with the silver glittery part of the stars and the rainbow colors go great with each other too! 
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with love and happiness! Until next time, happy crafting! 😊

Halloween Candy Cuties with Really Reasonable Ribbon


Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to you all! Today I have these darling "Going Batty" Candy Cuties I made and decorated using ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I love how they turned out, and will be making more of these darling candy holders. Ok, so I have a funny story to tell about a BAT.  One night a couple of weeks ago, my hubby heard a noise outside, it was loud.  He heard it in our back garage, and he couldn't figure out what it was. We had a problem with a wasp nest that we were dealing with, but he knew at this time at night those were sleeping and whatever was hopping around in the eves of his garage, he had no idea what it was until he went in the garage and started spraying the wasp spray.  Then it came and sat on the wood up high tucked back up by the roof and he thought it was staring at him  Well we know they don't see, so he sprayed it,and left the garage,  LOL hahahahaha.  Omgosh, when he told me this story, I thought OMGOSH I'm so glad you did not wake me up....LOL.  I would have never went back to sleep over that one.....hahaha at first he thought it was a mouse, but it wasn't.  He clearly saw it, and it was a brown bat.  We haven't heard anything out there as of lately, and we did get rid of the wasp, so hopefully it left, and is gone now.

To start with I had to buy the file for these.  They are a embroidery in the hoop file, and then I went ahead and decorated them using Really Reasonable Ribbon's beautiful polka dot satin ribbon, along with the rose buds white, and then black stamens, and little green leaves. Now the rose buds I did distress and spritz a little bit so they would be a blackish color for the bats. I love how the orange satin ribbon pops and makes these darling bats look so much sweeter.  They are cute to begin with, but even cuter using RRR beautiful satin! Love them!

There are two different sizes and they are to hold candy inside them. I of course forgot to buy candy to put in them, so I went into my jar and grabbed some candy hubby brought home for me...hehehee they worked just fine.

As the Crow Flies Greeting Card

Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Dropping in to share a very Halloweeny greeting card.
I am a fool for plaid and as soon as I saw this Halloween inspired pattern I knew I would use it for this card!

I've paired it with a fun NeverMore Halloween Collage holiday printable from my shop. That's a very serious looking crow!

 A  die cut spiderweb is tucked under a large doily for a very layered look. 
My favorite plaid ribbon from RRR is of course the Black Plaid. These's a second bow of loopy burlap string and a vintage button and how could I forget the spiderweb charm?

A metal clip holds a fun ticket, I've layered in some of the stamp images from the printable and a tag and sequins.

So how gorgeously spooky are these flowers? I used the White Magnolia finished in black paint,  some Chrysanthemums. Cherry Blossoms,  and Sweetheart Blossoms to create a nice full arrangement. A second loopy bow of twine and die cut leaves to finish off this card.


Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Sweet Autumn Treats



Don't you just love Autumn?  I sure do!  I love the changing colors of the leaves, making spiced cider, and making all kinds of fun little treats for all my nieces and nephews.  So for today's Really Reasonable Ribbon post, I decided to make some cute little treats.  I used a set of six plastic tubes with metal caps that I picked up at Hobby Lobby, and I filled them with some different colors of Skittles candies.  Then came the really fun part....using lots of fabulous products from Really Reasonable Ribbon to decorate and embellish these cute little treat tubes.
For the tubes that are filled with purple Skittles, I decorated each of those with small bows tied with Black Seam BindingLilac Seam Binding, and Parrot Green Solid Baker's Twine.  For the tubes that are filled with mixed (black, green and orange) Skittles, I decorated those tubes with small bows tied with Black Seam BindingOrange Seam BindingParrot Green Solid Baker's Twine, and Plum Baker's Twine.  Each tube (bow) was topped with a Jolee's spider.
It's fun and easy to make sweet little treats for all the "little goblins" in your life.  They enjoy the fun little treats, and you'll have fun making them.  Really Reasonable Ribbon makes it so easy to find all the ribbons, trims and supplies you need to create something wonderful.
With SO many products available in the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop, you're sure to find the perfect colors and styles to match your next project.....and beyond.  Oh, and don't forget about the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop starting tomorrow!
