Today I'm sharing with you one of my favorite cards I've made to date with Really Reasonable Ribbon. I paired the Sheer Looped white trim and the Swirls Red Organza and i just love the outcome. I also used another button from the Twilight Inspired Chipboard Button set to finish it off. I really wanted to focus on the ribbon for this card and I think it works so well
Swirls Red Organza. Purdy Purdy isn't it.
Make sure you stop by on Saturday for the 1st Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop. Our entire team will be sharing some absolutely stunning pieces and I know you will all want to find out who will win the big Really Reasonable Ribbon Gift.

When I received my ribbon club assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon this month, I knew that I had to create an inspiration piece. Something that really shows the Patriotic colors in this kit. The Blue Bandana grosgrain ribbon just begged to be used, so my mojo was running. Then I received some of these AMAZING chipboard buttons we now carry in the store. I used the glitter red button from the Twilight package. Yes I'll admit it, I'm a Twilight Junkie.
Here is the card I created.
store, hop on by and check them out. They are truly BEAUTIFUL!

I was finally able to create a card using some of the really fun new jute ribbon. I love how easy it is to use and the effect you get from this type of ribbon. The ribbon comes in 5 spectacular solid colors (Natural, Orange, Wine, Spring Green and Hunter) and 2 stripe colors (Green/Pink and Turquoise/White).
I also used Moss Green w/White Stitched Edge Grosgrain ribbon. This ribbon comes in many various colors and styles of Stitched Edges. The combining of both ribbons gave my card even more of a country feel than I was hoping to accomplished to go with the farm scene images.
Visit Really Reasonable Ribbon today and choose from many various styles of ribbon that are available. Add your very own combination of ribbons together to create a different look to any card/project.
Digital Images: Kitchen Shelf and Pantry from The Stamping Boutique (Colored images with Prisma color pencils and OMS).
Card Stock: Green (TAC), cranberry (Gina K Designs) and floral print (Michelle Anderson’s Pathways-Romance).
Die-Cuts: Nestabilities Circles/Scallop Circles.
Punches: Fiskars Lace Border Punch and EK Success Round Corner Punch.
Inks: Sakura Yellow Star Gelly Pen (center of flowers) and White Gel Pen (dots on dishes).
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous weekend!

The set is a birthday stamp set which is full of balloons. Whodda thunk you could make a flower out of balloons!
I used Old Gold and Aqua satin on the card, that I tied in a plain knot. I love these two ribbon colors together.

Where do you get your inspiration to create from? Art? Emotion? Your jewelry box? Today I'm sharing with you a card that really reminds me of a piece of turquoise jewelry I have. I usually start creating a project from the base up, but this one started from the top. I was inspired by this great Heart Swirl from Magistical Memories and decided to emboss it using pewter and turquoise sparkle embossing powders. Finding the perfect ribbons to match was NO problem since Really Reasonable Ribbon has every shade, color and texture of ribbon under the sun.
For this card I used the Ivory 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon and sprayed it with Olive Glimmer Mist 4 times for deep saturation. Then I layered 1/4" Aqua Satin ribbon on top. I just love the look of these two colors together.
What a great way to add that little bit of extra color on a project. Stop on over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon store and take a look around. There are so many new products including some great embellishments.
Thanks for stopping by today and remember we are having a design team call right now. For more information check the Design Team Call post HERE. We'd love to see you apply.
