Sweet Dreams Autumn Sunset Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Fall is peeping around the corner, so it's time to break out your August Ribbon Club Assortment.  Today's Sweet Dream Autumn Sunset card is loaded with fall imagery, gorgeous mixed media texture and of course, beautiful ribbons and flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I am loving the plaid ribbons in the August Club.  This 3/8" brown/ivory plaid is the perfect accent for this 5 1/2" square card.  Ribbon is a lovely way to add texture to your cards and layouts. 

After tying this 2 1/2" double loop bow with my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool, I topped it with Mixed Earth Tone Cottage Roses from Wild Orchard Crafts.  These little 25mm roses are the perfect size to add to a bow cluster. 

Inside the card, I added some pretty paper layers and a pocket.

Then I used my scraps to make this little tea bag wallet.

You could also use this as a gift card holder if you did not want to add the tea.

Fall is my favorite season of the year, so I am really enjoying the August Ribbon Club assortment.  After the hot summer we've endured here in North Carolina, I hope you will forgive me for wanting crisp autumn days and cooler autumn nights! 

Wishing you a day filled with joy and creativity!

Time to flourish Page 2 Mini album

Hello everyone, today I have another fun interactive mini album page I designed using the beautiful ribbons, flowers, and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon. This is the second page for the album im slowly working on...hehehehe

On this page I chose to use Really Reasonable Ribbons Satin and Delicate Stitched ribbons. I used the Green for the underneath the bow, and then the delicate stitched for the bow. Next I chose the beautiful Moss Green Satin Ribbon and then placed all my flowers and embellishments on. Each flap is magnetic to help keep the pages closed.

on the inside I chose to create a pocket to hold the tag and photos. Love this design paper, its so pretty! I did add sewing to most of the pieces. also added some brads I had.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies used:
Moss Green Satin
Delicate Stitched Ribbon Mineral Ice
Bronze Leaves
white flower embellishments
Rose buds

Life Is An Adventure

Welcome by the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog today, friends.  Thanks for visiting as I (Karen) share a fun card I created using just a few of my RRR favorites!  I started with some fun patterned papers and chipboard (camper) that I picked up at my local Tuesday Morning....always great bargains there!  The sentiment (Life Is An Adventure) is from Paper Sweeties.  Everything else can be found at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I ran a length of the lovely Fuchsia Wrinkled Ribbon down the center of my card.  I bundled some Ivory Burlap String and Navy Burlap String and layered that with some peach magnolias from the Magnolias Mixed Pastels and several navy sweetheart blossoms (from the Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms Mixed Blues), peach sweetheart blossoms (from the Mixed Peach/Orange), and some Miniature Ivory Sweetheart Blossoms.
There are so many gorgeous Mulberry Flowers at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and as you can see on this card; they accent our stamped images so nicely.  I almost framed the journalling spot with my cascading flowers on this card,  I could have gone completely crazy and put them a garden.  But I tried to use some restraint....LOL.  You're always sure to find the perfect ribbons, trims and embellishments at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hello Friend Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a summer inspired greeting card.

I'm not sure why but blue check and yellow is very summery to me.
Speaking of checks....this checkerboard ribbon is a double dose of checks!
The tag in the center is the perfect sentiment for this card. That little bird on wood grain is a great combination.
Lots of pretty flowers here to fill in this corner,
A pair of charms and a vintage button are the perfect finishing touches for this card.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Not a member yet?
The August assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed mix.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

Still have one foot in Summer?  
Grab our Ribbon Club Special Deal for US residents and pick up July and August for a low introductory price!

I don't know about you, but an autumn color palette is one of my most favorite to work with.  Such gorgeous rich colors.  I just love everything about autumn.
This time I made a Thank You card, but it could just as easily work for any occasion by just switching out the sentiment.  I created some paper for the leaf with Distress and Distress Oxide Inks.  They are so much fun to work with. 
My bottom layer is a natural mulberry paper with some leaf inclusions that make it perfect for autumn projects.

For a video tutorial on how I use mulberry paper on my projects, please click HERE.
My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color double-loop bow created on my Bow-it-All Tool using two of the ribbons from the August Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also used two other ribbons from the assortment across the center of the card under my sentiment.

For a video tutorial on how to create this pretty bow, please click HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more information on the other products used on my card, please visit my Make Time to Craft Blog.  Have a crafty weekend!
