Shaking Things Up with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Ribbon Lover's !  It's Kathy here today with some fun ways to use ribbon.

Of course, we all love to add texture, dimension and pattern to our cards.  Beautiful bows are the easiest way I know of to do this.   This Sherbet Checkerboard Satin Ribbon ties beautiful bows!  Top it with some Silver Metallic String and you've added another layer of texture and shine.

But ribbon also makes a beautiful border added to the top or side of a card.  This 5/8" Vintage Floral Print Satin Ribbon looks great layered down the side of the card.  Using 1/2" Scor-Tape makes this really quick and easy to do.

Ribbon looks great inside a card, too!  I love this sweet little border strip and bow made with 3/8" Pink and Purple Vertical Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon. It makes this card feel like a party is going on!

Add a ribbon border to this little gift tag, top it with a Sherbet Checkerboard Satin Bow, and you're really rocking the ribbon!  A scrap of that Vintage Flora Print ribbon looks great tied onto a honey stick, too!

Ribbon also makes a great closure for this gift card holder.  I attached 3/8" Shocking Pink Quatrefoil Print Satin to the back of the gift card holder with 1/4" Scor-Tape.  After the ribbon is attached, use more Scor-Tape to adhere it to the card base.  Tie a bow, and you've got a mighty cute gift card holder!

Here's a peek at the inside.

I hope I've shared some fresh ideas for ways to use ribbon in your card making adventures.  You can find all the ribbons used here in the RRR June Ribbon Club Assortment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Easy Art Canvas with Felt Flowers and Ribbon Stems

Hi friends! Linsey here today sharing my latest project using some great trims from RRR! I created an inspiring and uplifting art canvas with felt flowers and ribbon stems!
The felt was cut with flower and leaf dies with clear sticker sentiments placed in the larger flower centers. The smaller flowers have double-layered button centers tied together with Burlap String Black and Burlap String Yellow. The stems of the large flowers were made using long strips of 1/8" Diagonal Stripe Ribbon Parrot Green. I adore this ribbon. It's so versatile and coordinates with just about everything. I like how the white/green diagonal stripes create a nice visual interest along with the green felt petals.
The chicken wire fence was done with a honeycomb metal die and I like how it turned out too. The main background is just a 12x12 piece of designer patterned paper and a few additional details like the butterflies and enamel dots were added to complete the canvas.
This was a really fun project for me to share today nd I hope you enjoyed it too! Thanks so much for visiting and until next time, happy crafting! 😊

Pretty Feminine Birthday Card

Hi there ribbon and mulberry flower lovers!  Bonnie here today with a pretty birthday card that would be perfect for your bestie.  It showcases some pretty Open Roses and ribbon from the June Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Mulberry Flowers are such a wonderful way to add some real 'pizazz' to your projects quickly and easily.  The best part is that they are so economically priced!
Check out our full line of Mulberry Flowers HERE.
On my card today I simply selected some pink 15mm Open Roses to add under my sentiment panel.  I used a needle tool and coiled the stem around that and pulled gently to separate the coils a bit.  I then glued the flowers in a curve under my sentiment.  I tucked some 15mm Mulberry Rose Leaves on either end.
My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the June Ribbon Club Assortment.  I also layers two ribbons from the assortment and ran that across the center of the card under my sentiment.  The center of my bow is topped with a pretty 10mm Resin Flower Embellishment.

For a video tutorial on how to make this pretty bow, please click HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more information on other products used on my card, please visit my Make Time to Craft Blog.

Manly Card using Really Reasonable Ribbon

 Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to you all! Cheryl here today with a card designed not only for my Dear Hubby but also for Really Reasonable Ribbon as I used some of the ribbon and Jute that Really Reasonable Ribbon carries. Right now the Jute is on SALE there are 2 different colors left of this one I used in the black, perfect time to pick some up.

So for my card today, I wanted it to match the Quilt I made dear hubby for Fathers Day, so this one I used fabric from the quilt on each layer, and added the sewing to hold it in place. Love how it turned out, and Hubby LOVED it too. All three layers are fabric and card stock in black. I thought the Jute Ribbon was perfect to use on this, as I  really didnt want to add a bow for his manly card....hehehehee even though part of me wanted too....hahahaha.  Anyway, I also was able to add in some of Really Reasonable Ribbon's pretty Red Satin Checkerboard ribbon, and then added a silver button.

On each layer of cardstock I did add some white dots, as I love using the white dots on black card stock. The OLD GUYS RULE is also a fabric piece I fussy cut out of the fabric. I will add a photo of hubby with his quilt on my blog for all to see, so if you would like to see the quilt, it will be posted here. Thank you.

The stamps are from ODBD, and I bought these a few years back I believe, and wanted to use this for my card.

 Hope you enjoyed my card for today, and Thank you for stopping by!
Hugs to all,

Thankful Grateful Blessed Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty Peeps! I'm sharing a card today that is a bit out of my comfort zone.  I'm using natural colors instead of shabby chic. I know it's freaking me out too!

Even though it's not my go to color combo I'm very pleased with how it turned out. 

I've gathered Burlap String and pretty coordinating flowers to fill in this arrangement.
That gorgeous plaid ribbon is the perfect accent for this card. I finished it off with a coppery colored clip, die cut doily,  and sequins.

Really Reasonable Ribbon~  Burlap String in Olive, Plaid Ribbon Moss/Cream.

How Does your Garden Grow?

 Do you enjoy spending time in your garden?  I created this layout to showcase some of my flowers using some beautiful ribbons and embellishments from Really Reason Ribbon.
I used the beautiful ribbon from this month's ribbon assortment - Pink & Purple Mix.
I then added the Bling Ribbon Slider to the beautiful Danielle White Crochet Lace to add additional softness to the layout.
I then added some of the Ivory/Blue Dimco 2 Flowers to add more dimension.
I hope this inspires you to capture your garden in your scrapbooks.
