Hello! Tami Mayberry here and I am very excited to be today's Really Reasonable Ribbon guest designer. I "met" Bonnie a few months ago while setting up her sponsorship week for the CPS card sketch blog. After seeing all of the gorgeous ribbons and trims in the Really Reasonable Ribbon store I was in awe and excited to see some of my all time favorite ribbons being sold there. Bonnie asked if I would like to be a guest on the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog and without hesitation I said "Of course!!".
As I mentioned, Really Reasonable Ribbon carries some of my all time favorite ribbons. Many of which I already own. Such as...
May Arts wrinkled ribbon (in lots of colors!)
and this red mesh ribbon
(just to name a few!)
Once I finished drooling over the selection and finally decided which ribbons to use (which was probably the most difficult task of all!) I went to work on my cards.
As I mentioned previously, Bonnie is an upcoming prize sponsor at CPS and will be sponsoring all next week starting tomorrow, March 18. So, first off, I thought I would share the card I created for the CPS challenge.
It's always fun to use multiple styles of ribbon on a card.
Patterned papers: My Mind's Eye; Stamp: Inky Antics; Markers: Shinhan Touch Twin.
Another fun way to use multiple ribbons on a card is to layer them together. For this card I layered two different styles of ribbon. I used the Red Double Ruffle ribbon (a new favorite!!) and Black Mini Ric Rac. I also added some black pearl accents.
Stamps: Gina K Designs All Occasion Tags; Ink: Clearsnap; Dies: Spellbinders
As you can see, I am a very clean and simple card maker. But, even with that, pretty much every card I make has ribbon and gems or pearls. For me that is really the only embellishment needed for the perfect card. With the great prices and huge selection of colors and styles, I will definitely be a Really Reasonable Ribbon customer for quite some time and hope you will check out the selection as well.
I also have 2 more cards posted on my blog as well.
One features ribbons from the Swiss Dot Brights Assortment.
The other design I have to share features layering of a 5/8" stitched ribbon with Turquoise Mini Ric Rac and accented with Hot Pink pearls.
I hope you'll stop by my blog for a visit soon!
And, a huge thanks to Bonnie for having me today.
Have a great weekend!!
