Hello everyone and welcome to another amazing Blog Hop here at the Really Reasonable Ribbon's Readings Blog! First off, thank you to everyone that has taken part in our Fall themed challenge. You still have just over a day left to get your entries in. We'd love to have you play along.

Since we're starting things off here on the RRR blog, I thought I'd share a card that I made using some ribbon from our October Ribbon Club assortment. The bow on the top is a double bow made with our bow-easy tool which makes a perfect bow every time.

  1. Love the blog hop, love the Christmas ribbons! For holiday cards, it depends: traditional Christmas in red and green would call for gold accents; contemporary Christmas with pinks, purples and blues would call for silver accents.

  8. Hiya all you talented ladies :-) I have had so much fun visiting all of you; thanks for all the great projects you are sharing :-)

    Over to your Q; on my holiday projects, I think I prefer gold as an accent (but it does depend on the colour of my card, and papers as well, really).

    The October ribbon club assortment is absolutely great; I esp like Kerrys work displaying the use of it too :-)

    Thanks for inviting me to a fun blog hop; I have enjoyed it immensely !

  15. Oh I love that gorgeous double bow and the way you added the ribbon to the inside! Beautiful card, Bonnie!

  16. Beautiful project! I always pefer gold!

  17. Great card! The red ribbon really pops nicely on the gold background.
    If I am going for traditional colours, then it HAS to be gold ribbons but for the newer, more modern trends, I love silver. But since I am more of a traditionalist, gold would probably win!
    Awesome blog hop!!! Loved all the artist's works and their uses of ribbons were so pretty and creative!
    Thanks for sharing! :o)

  20. What a wonderful blog hop, I enjoyed every minute of it :)
    I am not sure if I prefer gold over silver or vice versa, I think it depends on the mood that I am in. Gold may perhaps have a bit more uses than silver as it can be easily combined with warm or cold colors, silver is a bit more "cold" wintery stuff. But honestly, I think I decide which one to take after looking at my stash and what's available. I probably would choose ribbon that would match wintery peel-offs which are available in gold and silver.
    I must say your red and white twine is super cute, a must have!

  21. omgosh, that is a yummy assortment of ribbon!! i wish i could join every club kit, i'd be in heaven for sure!!!

    i prefer silver personally but sometimes gold just fits better on cards. it depends on the gold i think, more of a muted aged copper gold is what i like.

  26. Great Hop. I enjoyed it. I do prefer gold. I use silver when working with snow and winter wonderland images. But in all other things I prefer gold. Thanks for the chance to win.

  27. Such a pretty card inside and out. I am so excited to get my club ribbons.
    I am a Gold girl in all ways, but once in awhile I will use silver.

  29. Lovely hop! Did get a lot of inspiration on my way back here!
    Silver or gold...hmmm...think I couldn´t do without either colour. Gold for the more traditional cards and I tend to use sparkly silver on my more non-traditional cards with pink or blue.

  32. Beautiful card and FANTASTIC blog hop!! Joining you on these hops gives me so much inspiration of using ribbons on my projects, and it's now one of my fav embellies!! Thanks to all you talented girls!!
    I'm not sure if silver or gold is my fav... In fact, I use them both on my Christmas projects. I think it depends on what kind of papers and embellies I'm using... ;)

    Lots of love, Randi WS

  34. Love the three colors makes such a striking card along with the beautiful bow. MY choice would be silver

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've been everywhere... loved all of the wonderful inspiration.

    That's a hard question, because it always depends on the other colours in my creation. But probably I use more silver :)
