Rainbow Ribbon Art

Hi friends and happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! Linsey here sharing a fun project that is easy enough for kids to make with assistance (since the oven is involved) and it will be sure to brighten up any space, too! All you need is ribbon--grosgrain works super well--and a few other supplies/tools and you're ready to make some rainbow ribbon art!
For my rainbow, I used the Bright Colors Grosgrain with Silver Metallic Edges Assortment, which I curled using this easy technique. After painting the background of an 8x10 canvas board, each layer of curled ribbon was arranged in a rainbow pattern. I used mini glue dots to hold my ribbon in place.
The clouds were cut from white felt and arranged in more layers to create the illusion of puffiness. A few sequins were added to the clouds on either side of the rainbow and a few mini sequins were added for a raindrop effect. The sentiment sticker, heart and chipboard piece finish the piece and now I have a pretty little work of art to give away or keep for myself. 
I hope you like it and are inspired to try something with curled ribbon too! It's super fun! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Until next time, happy crafting!

Sweet Baby

Hello everyone.  Today I'm sharing this sweet baby card made for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful white satin delicate stitched ribbon.  I love this ribbon as it makes absolutely gorgeous bows!

For my card today I made the big bow, and then added flowers using JustRite flowers, and Viva pearl pen for the centers. The flowers were done using the glass flower technique. All the die cuts were done a long time ago and were sitting in my stash, they are all from JustRite Papercraft.

I'm keeping my post short and sweet today, as it's been a busy week this week.  Everything was put together using Really Reasonable Ribbons Scotch refill ATG tape, and then the foam adhesive squares. I will put all links below.  I used some scrap design paper and stamped the dot paper using a pink ink for the background on the card.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs to all,

Dashing Through the Snow Large Christmas Tag

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share the project I created for day 10 of my 12 Days of Christmas in July YouTube tutorial series.  How can it be day 10 already??? It's going by so fast!!!
I super love to make tags and this one is a whopper coming in at 6 x 7 1/2 inches! Why is it so big you ask? Well it's because I can not possibly decide what fun papers and trims and embellishments I want to use so I'm using them all!
I've gon a bit mixed media on this project adding some stars with texture paste through a stencil. There are also pretty metal charms for a bit of sparkle. 
This chevron ribbon is the perfect choice for this winter inspired tag. I've topped it with a second loopy bow of burlap string then finished it with jingle bells.

A garden of "frosty" blooms with die cut foliage tucked in is the final touch to this very vintagy tag.

Please enjoy this process video on how I created this tag....

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Let God Use You Layout

One of the many things I like to add to our family albums is simple words of faith.  I have collected hymnals over the years and use them in a lot of my artwork.
For this layout I added some gorgeous ribbon and lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon to add dimension and softness to this layout.
I used Sheer Iridescent Antique Gold Ribbon and paired it with the Burlap Natural String.  Then I added the Chloe Natural Crochet Lace and vintage cream buttons.

  I then tucked a few of the Mulberry Leaves around the photo mat.

Wishing you a creative day.

Hello....How Are You?

Hello!  How are you?  We're sure glad you've stopped by today as I share a sweet little card I created using several FABULOUS Really Reasonable Ribbon products. I attached two patterned papers and a journalling card using strips of Scor-Tape, and then I ran a width of sweet Bay Leaf Seam Binding across my card and used it to tie a bow along with some Lipstick Red Seam Biding.  I topped that with some 10mm Red, Mixed Blue, and Black Open Roses, one 10mm Wild Orchid Crafts Mulberry Leaf and some adorable Red, White, Teal and Black Double Head Stamens.
I stamped my sentiments, added a stamped flower pot and flowers, a die-cut swirl border, vintage scotch tape, and some 10mm Rhinestone Resin Flowers.  I also attached a snippet of some awesome May Arts trims including a piece of Red Center-Stitched Burlap Trim; and I topped that with a (Black) Mixed Color Plaid Fabric Covered Button.  I did a bit of inking on the edges of my papers, and that's about it.
There are so many awesome products available at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and SO much more than just the hundreds of different ribbons and trims.  You can find Embellishments, Adhesives, Hair Accessories, and everything creative you can imagine to make something wonderful.  There are also sales and promotions, lots of inspiration, and our monthly Blog Hops here on the wonderful Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog; so be sure to stop by each day so you won't miss a thing.

Thanks again for visiting us, and have a great day!
