Make a Wish Slimline Birthday Card

Make a Wish Slimline Birthday Card by Kathy Clement

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Have you been making lots of Valentines with your January Ribbon Club Assortment?  Well, these ribbons also work beautifully with the retro aqua and red color palette of this Make a Wish Slimline Birthday card! 

Make a Wish Slimline Birthday Card by Kathy Clement

I love the way the Random Hearts Red Grosgrain ribbon looks when it is layered over Poppy Red Satin Ribbon.  It really makes the black and white focal image pop, too. 

Tie little random heart grosgrain bows in the corners of this card to help anchor the design.

Then tie the aqua and red color palette together with a bit of Aqua Baker's Twine

The inside of the card has more designer papers and sentiment panel where you can write your own birthday greeting.

I hope you're having as much fun with this month's ribbon club as I am!  

Thanks for stopping by!

 Hello friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a slimline card that's perfect for just about any occasion. 

I really love this combination of blue check and gold accents.

I've added two pretty bows created with Navy Wrinkle Ribbon to coordinate and to help fill in the arrangement.

Old Fashioned Valentine by Cherry Nelson

 Hello crafty friends and ribbon lovers!  Cherry here today to share a good old fashioned Valentine!  One with a nod to days gone by.  Those are my favorite type to create.  The Victorians really knew how to glam it up!  This card uses a lot of layers and dimension to create interest.  A mix of old and new.  The gold ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon make this card extra pretty! 


I love to mix up my pinks during this holiday.....adding in gold really makes those pinks pop.





This holiday like no other really hits home the handmade vibe....nothing is more special than a made by hand Valentine for those we hold dear.  Especially in this day and age.  I hope I have encouraged you to get your scissors out and do some fussy cutting like the Victorians!

XOXO, Cherry

Happy Valentine's Day card


Hello everyone and Happy Friday to you all! Today I have a super fun and sweet card I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon using their beautiful ribbons and flowers. I love making Valentine's cards.  They are so much fun to create and this is my first one for 2021. 

This card measures 6 x 6 and has 3 layers plus the heart layer. I added Happy Valentine's Day using The Project Bin stamps. Next I chose this sweet Kitty Bee from CottageCutz and added a little heart on her dress. I wanted to glitter her wings but completely forgot until photos were taken...heheehe.  I thought she would look darling with the valentine design paper with the bee on it. I then added the Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon in white, then the mini hearts on poppy grosgrain ribbon, layered with the Cottage Rose 25mm then the Rose Buds.

Supplies Used:
Cottage Cutz dies
The Project Bin Stamps
Pebbles Yours Truly design paper
white gel pen
Copics to color
club scrap black ink

I hope you enjoyed my card for today! thank you for stopping by! 
Hugs to all,

FUN Ribbon Decoration/Wall Hanging

Hello, dear blog friends.  I'm so glad you've stopped by today as I share a couple of FUN little projects using just a few of  (thousands) the beautiful trims carried at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  They always have the perfect ribbon, trim, twine, lace, and all you could ever need in the way of spooled things.  You'll never have to search for the perfect trim again when you shop at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  In fact, they carry SO much more at Really Reasonable Ribbon than the oodles of trims in stock.  They also carry helpful crafting items such as Adhesives, Embellishments, Mulberry Flowers, Hair Accessories and more.
The projects I'm sharing today are.....well, they can be whatever you want them to be.  A wall hanging, a decorative piece for your dresser, sofa table, etc.  There are SO many wonderful trims at Really Reasonable Ribbon and I enjoy using them in many different and creative ways.  This first little decoration (well, both of them really) was created using some frames from Crate Paper that I layered together.  I created a background, and added some sequins to create a shaker element.
The ribbon at the base of this first project is the lovely 3/4" Pink Champagne Chevron Twill, and I cut two lengths of it, side by side, and attached near the top - just above where I attached the shaker element.  You will also see that I added several gorgeous Miniature Double Head Stamens, a Peach Magnolia from Mixed Pastels, and several sweet Yellow Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms from the Mixed Pastels.
How sweet!  I just love everything found at Really Reasonable Ribbon and how all these AWESOME products help me create something wonderfully creative and unique.  This little set of Crate Paper shaped frames had another shape, so I created a second project.  This one starts with more of that fabulous 3/4" Chevron Twill, but this time it's the 3/4" Black Chevron Twill that I used.
I put my shakers together using some fabulous Adhesives such as the Scor-Tape and 3-D Foam Tabs.  I also decorated the top of this hanger with some lovely Mulberry Flowers and goodies.  This includes a Red Open Rose and two Black Open Roses as well as several Miniature Double Head Stamens and a piece of Solid Red Baker's Twine.  If you have any questions about any of the products I used (or anything else), you're always welcome to leave me a message here, or stop by my blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to let me know.  I'm always happy to help.
I hope you've enjoyed these FUN little projects I created.  And YOU can create something fun and exciting as well.  Just grab some new RIBBONS, maybe the Ribbon Club Assortment, some GinghamsLaces and Mulberry Flowers, and.....there you go!  Let the creativity begin.  Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to stop by here on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog each day for lots more great inspiration from all my talented teammates.  We always enjoy your visits.
