Let's Celebrate Greeting Card

Hello friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here with a greeting card I created with beautiful trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

We've just wrapped up Christmas in July at Polly's Paper Studio and I was sooooooo ready to break out some non-holiday colors! I adore navy and peach together don't you?

By using the darker colored cardstock as a border between the busy patterns I was able to break up the busy patterns.  That beautiful stitched satin ribbon coordinates perfectly!
Why not add a garden full of gorgeous flowers to dress up your greeting cards? These are from Really Reasonable Ribbon as well and I just love how much fun they were to layer. A few details like the buttons and metal charm finish this card off in style!

Choose Joy Card with Handmade Flowers by Cherry Nelson

Hello Ribbon peeps!  Cherry here today to share a card and a new obsession.  Handmade paper and Foamirian flowers.   I have been having a ball creating them.  It is amazing what variations you can come up with just by using different stamens, layers, diecuts, and coloring techniques.  Each flower is always different.  I enjoy mixing them with my Wild Orchid Craft flowers from the store too.  I think they turned out so pretty.  Check out RRR for stamens and berries to use in your flower creating. Scroll down for Really Reasonable Ribbon supplies used.  Happy crafting friends!

XOXO, Cherry

Beach Dreams with the July Ribbon Club Assortment

Hello, Friends!  I've been dreaming of the beach:  toes scrunched into warm sand, seagulls coasting on the air currents, beachy breezes blowing through my hair...oh, yes, please!  Since the beach is not a possibility for me right now, I did the next best thing: I dug out my Seashore July Ribbon Club Assortment and created a dreamy beach window card.

Capri Blue Double Faced Satin and Blue Variegated Shell Print Satin play perfectly with the blues in this paper collection.  It feels like a calm day at sea, and that makes my heart happy!

 TIP: Attach ribbon to the top of a pocket with Scor-tape to add texture and shimmer to your design.

Tuck an Ivory Burlap String Bow in with your Capri Blue Satin Bow.  This not only adds texture, it helps draw the eye to the floral cluster. 

Here's a peek at the inside.  A twisted easel card is designed mostly for display.  But I did manage to create a little pocket inside.  See how pretty that Blue Variegated Shell Print Satin is on the pocket?

Even tiny bits of ribbon can be used to add designer touches to a card.  Looping a bit of ribbon through the top of this metal key really makes it pop.  

I hope we all get to dig our toes into the sand soon!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks A Latte!

 Hello everyone and Happy Monday to you all! Today I'm sharing this sweet card I designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon and My Makers Movement. I had a latte fun creating this card, and hope you enjoy my post for today!

For my card today I chose design papers from my stash that I've had for a long time. Next I layered them and added my sewing using the sewing machine. I love dots , so I added tons of those to each layer, using my white Gel Pen. Next I cut out my Latte cup using coordinating design paper, and stamped the sentiment that came with this set, isn't it too cute?! 

All the Gorgeous flowers are from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I will list them all below for easy finding. I chose to use the beautiful Chrysanthemum, cherry blossoms, and rose buds to make up the flower cluster on my card. The Beautiful ribbons I chose are the Delicate Stitched(LOVE) , and the Satin Shell Print Ribbon. I really enjoyed creating this card, and hope you like it too!

Having Fun With Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello crafty peeps, and welcome by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today as I (Karen) share a some fun projects with you.  There are SO many fabulous ribbons, trims, twines and goodies at Really Reasonable Ribbon that you're always sure to find just the right touches for every project.  Today I'm sharing five quick projects that each use some of my favorite trims.
While I was on vacation recently, I purchased a few new things at a fun scrapbook store including some die-cuts from My Favorite Things for making Chapstick/lip balm holders like the one above.  I love the Cherry Baker's Twine at the top of the holder.  Baker's Twine is a wonderful touch for so many projects.  And, at just $1 for 10 yards, you're going to want to pick up all 37 gorgeous colors carried at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
My second project is the HELLO card shown above.  It uses a kraft paper base, some woodgrain patterned paper, die-cut foliage and a stamped sentiment.  The finishing touch to this quick but sweet little card is some Natural Burlap String that's strung through a little brown button and tied into a bow.
None of the projects/cards I'm sharing today are terribly complicated, and none of them have a whole lot of Really Reasonable Ribbon product on them.  I guess my point was just to show everyone how a small accent, such as the Natural Burlap String or some Baker's Twine can add texture and personality to your art work.  By the way, Really Reasonable Ribbon also carries several fabulous Adhesives to help you securely attached your papers, ribbons, etc. onto your projects.
It's pretty much the same concept with this card (above) where I really wanted the focus to remain on the stamped sentiment and the pretty stamped leaves.  The Natural Burlap String used on this card really pulls in the color from the kraft base.  It's a simple addition, but again adds just a lovely completed touch.
The last card I'm sharing today again uses a kraft cardstock base and then a layer of white cardstock that's pressure embossed using an embossing folder.  There are a few gem stickers, but just to give the card that extra touch of love, a piece of Green Micro Gingham Ribbon was attached.  There really is a perfect trim for every project at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and we hope you will stop by often.  You'll always find loads of inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, and there's never a shortage of beautiful ribbons, trims, twines, Embellishments, Adhesives, Mulberry Flowers, and more waiting for you in the Really Reasonable Ribbon store.  Please visit again soon.

Holly Jolly Slim Line Folio

Hello friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a project I created with  gorgeous trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon...
The story behind this project is that I truly intended to create a slim line card. Like I do. All the time. But this time something happened...I think it may have been aliens.....taking over my brain ....and once I had all the paper patterns pulled out it transformed into a folio. 
I created the bows for this folio with my new fav ribbon. Two bows is always better than one right? 

I finished off these made by me poinsettias with pretty double headed stamens and created a generous arrangement with die cut foliage, loopy twine bows and skeleton leaves cut from silvery mirror cardstock

 Inside has tags, folded inserts, and tip ins for plenty of room to add pictures and journaling.

~Really Reasonable Ribbon~ Slate Blue Wrinkle Ribbon, Ivory Burlap String, Flower Stamens.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Shaker Cards Duo by Cherry Nelson

 Hellllllllllllllllo my paper peeps!  Cherry here today to share a couple of shaker cards made with Really Reasonable Ribbon trims, flowers, and stamens.  Bonnie has such a great selection of all those goodies. I have been into pinks and peaches lately.  It is fun to try different color combos, isn't it?  I created these shakers using old Sizzix die frames and then just added some recycled acetate to cover the fronts.  The more foam adhesive you have on back, the deeper your shaker card will be. It creates a reverse shadow box effect and if you know me....I love lots of dimension. That allows the sequins to really be able to move around...which is half the fun.  I am developing quite the collection of different things to add to shaker cards.  Well that is it for me today friends.  Please scroll down for list of RRR supplies.  Stay healthy and safe my friends
                                                               XOXO, Cherry
