Hello Really Reasonable Ribbon peeps! Let me introduce myself to you. I am Gloria Stengel and am thrilled to be your Guest Designer today! Bonnie asked me to fill in on this very busy week to give the regular DT a holiday break. I was very happy to do so! I am a big fan of ribbon (and this amazing challenge blog), so it was a no-brainer for me to say YES! Some of you may have seen me around blogland. I post almost every day to my personal blog, so make sure you stop by Scraps of Life and say hello!
I have three cards to show you today. Bonnie sent me a nice package of ribbon to work with. The colors are simply stunning! This first card is a vintage Christmas theme. I used the Moss Olive Swiss Dots Grosgrain (3/8") ribbon. The color is so rich!
The knotted ribbon made the perfect backdrop for my floral arrangement. I used Martha Stewart branch punches and mulberry roses, plus a tiny pine cone from the craft store floral department to mimic the greenery in Santa's wheelbarrow.
This next card is a bit more contemporary. I colored this very cute Sugar Nellie stamp with Copic markers. I used Red Gingham (3/8") ribbon this time. Gingham ribbon is my favorite. I just love the county feel of it and it's perfect for this little image.To make my fabbie bow, I used the Bow Easy Tool. I make pretty good bows, but I can never get both tails behind the knot! With the Bow Easy, you ALWAYS have a perfect bow...and both tails are in the back, right where they belong!
