Easter Blessing Card

Hello Friends!!
Heather here and today I would like to share with you an Easter card that I created.  It is hard to believe that this Sunday will be Easter!  It kind of crept up on me this year :0)
I used a bunch of goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon!
I started out by cutting a piece of 8.5 by 11 inch paper in half to create my ivory cardstock base.  I then cut a piece of my floral digital paper to use as my background.  I layers the Edna Lace and then the aqua satin which I topped with  Baby Pink and Blue Mulberry Roses.  Tombow Foam Tabs were used to elevate my pink ticket base with Easter Blessings Focal.  I did the pink tag with layers of  Edna Lace and Celery gingham.  Topped with Pink Mulberry Roses, and  Cotton Candy Baker's Twine as well as light blue leaves and pink twine.  I also used pink lace and  pink twine at the bottom and top of the tag. Here is a close up below.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter and enjoy the rest of your week.
Thank you for visiting us atReally Reasonable Ribbon!

Cupcake Birthday by Jenn Cochran

Hello to all the Really Reasonable Ribbon fans and followers.  It’s Jenn here from Jax BeanStalks.  Do you ever feel like you are scrambling to get a birthday card ready?  I always feel like I don’t have any on hand when I need them.  It is so frustrating.  So, what I have done is come up with a card layout that you can customize for male or female…and for the kiddos.  It is super simple and takes just about 5-8 minutes to throw together.

If you can come up with a good layout (or you can use my LO), then the possibilities are endless.  I have taken this die cut cupcake and made it into several different colors to match different papers.  With the die cut in 3 pieces this is really the most time consuming part of the card.  With the cupcakes premade, I can simply add ribbon and a sentiment to the square die cut.  Voila, the card is done and ready to give.

I have used the Faux Canvas ribbon in Fuchsia.  I tied a simple triple looped bow and made sure to wrap the ribbon around the middle of the card to add an extra pop of color to this fun and festive card.

Hope you find this card easy and a motivation to stock your birthday card stash!  Thanks so much for visiting.

Repurpose a Fun Frame with Ribbons

Hi everyone, it's Teresa here for with a quick post for this month to repurpose a cute frame that I got at Michaels recently.  I found this beautiful Wired Woven Check Ribbon  on the website and new I needed to try it and I had to do something fun with it. So I gathered up some things I had in my stash and had fun playing.

The frame was already painted and distressed so I thought it would be fun to add some buttons all around the edges of the frame and then finish it with a really pretty bow made with the wired ribbon
and some seam binding ribbon that I misted and scrunched in the center of it. 

It's simple and easy and now I can find a cute picture of my family to put inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by today :)

Emerald Tartan Plaid and Good Old Sport

Hello, Friends!  It's Kathy here, and I have a brand new ribbon "crush."  This Emerald Tartan Plaid Ribbon caught my eye, and I just had to work it up into  a vintage layered card made with Graphic 45 Good Old Sport papers.

I love the way the deep emerald green is mixed with navy blue stripes, and it makes it the perfect ribbon match for this pretty paper.

I did a bit of stitching on the layers, and matted everything with black cardstock to ground the card and unify all those yummy patterns.  Don't you love that this lady is dressed to go play golf?  I even managed to find a tiny green golf bag in my button stash. How amazing is that?  I added it to a flower cluster of Mixed Color Cosmos, Red Center Sweetheart Blossoms and Two Tone Blue Sweetheart Blossoms.

I can't imagine doing anything athletic in an outfit like this, but it sure does make for a fun card!

Hoping you all have a great day, and plenty of time for crafting this weekend!  Don't forget to link up your creations to the RRR Bright Spring Colors Challenge!  You still have time to throw your hat into the ring!

Easter Wishes

Hello, Cherry here today to share this sweet Easter plaque.  I started with a sturdy chipboard scroll base that I covered in polka dot papers.  I sanded the edges and inked them a bit.  I added tinsel and silver metallic grosgrain around the canvas image.  I also added some homemade paper fringe and a big fluffy flower.  I wanted to add some more character so I added more silver grosgrain along with seam bindings in bay leaf and baby pink along with a sweet metal rimmed tag , a vintage button, and some sweetheart blossoms in pink.  Love the vintage feel the silver grosgrain adds to this little project!  Enjoy, cherry

Floral Thank You

Hi there crafty peeps!  I wanted to share with you today a card I created with some of the supplies from the March Simon Says Stamp Card Kit and some fabulous ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I layered a few of the papers that came in the kit together on top of some yellow shimmer cardstock. The kit came with a die that punches a row of holes and I used that on the top and bottom of the card. I wove Metal Gray Swiss Dots Grosgrain Ribbon through the holes.  I then stamped the sentiment onto a journal card from the paper collection.  I stamped flowers and leaves from the included stamp set with two different shades of yellow ink and a light gray ink.  I fussy cut them all out and layered them onto the card.  Finally, I created a double layered bow with the same Metal Gray Swiss Dots Grosgrain Ribbon and Lemon Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.

I hope you enjoy my sun-shiny Thank You card and it inspires you to make something cheerful as well today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Seeing Swiss Dots and Buttons

Hey everyone.  It's Dana here with you today.  I hope you are having a great day.  I'm back to share a card I made using some fabulous Satin Swiss Dots ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I love this primary color ribbon assortment.  It's perfect for spring.

This ribbon worked perfectly with some polka dot buttons I had stashed in my stamp room.  The colors matched perfectly.  I used the ribbon as stripes across my card and the buttons were the perfect embellishment.

All my card needed at this point was a simple sentiment.  I didn't want anything to take away from my ribbon stripes. This was a quick and cute card to put together.  By using different ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon the look of this card is endless. I used some 3D foam tabs to pop my panel up on a white card base.

Now it's your turn to head on over to the shop and pick up your fabulous Satin Swiss Dots ribbon and make yourself a striped ribbon card.  We would love to see what you create.  Have a fabulous day everyone.
