Love, Hope & Joy

Hello to all our ribbon loving friends!  It's Karen Letchworth posting today.....and let me assure you that you don't really even have to be a ribbon lover to be a lover of Really Reasonable Ribbon because we carry SO much more than just ribbons.  While we do, admittedly, carry the widest variety of ribbons and trims you can imagine; we also have gorgeous Mulberry FlowersAdhesivesEmbellishments, and...the list goes on and on.
For today's card, I used white cardstock and a piece of October Afternoon patterned paper from my stash.  I die-cut the frame from a piece of white wood grain patterned paper, and in the middle of that I stamped my sentiment which is from Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Holiday Greetings Stamp Set. Next, I added three gorgeous White Lotus Flowers, several (light turquoise) Miniature Mixed Blue Sweetheart BlossomsTwo-Toned Turquoise Open Roses, several White Double Head Stamens and Turquoise Double Head Stamens.  Lots of fabulous Scor-Tape holds everything together securely.
I also tucked in a Green Mulberry Leaf, a White Mulberry Leaf, and some bundled Ivory Burlap String.  At the bottom right of my card, I attached a White Flat Back Pearl.  As I mentioned, there is SO much more than (oodles of) ribbons available at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This card uses no less than 12 of their items, and only one of those is a spooled trim.  So, I really do hope you will stop by Really Reasonable Ribbon to look around for some Christmas treats for yourself.  You will LOVE what you see.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  We always appreciate your visits and comments.  Have a wonderfully creative week, and really.....check out Really Reasonable Ribbon for all your crafting needs.  They have SO much to offer.

Silver & Gold Gingerbread House Card

Hello friends and happy Monday to you! I hope you had a lovely weekend and to start of the week, I have a super sweet and special holiday card to show you! I just received my new Gingerbread House Die set from Anna Griffin and let me tell you, it is so much fun! Almost as much fun as making a real gingerbread house for the holidays, but without all the mixing, baking and dishes to clean up...just lots of little pieces of paper scraps)😊
And what goes perfect with this silver and gold gingerbread house? The fabulous Silver and Gold Mix November Ribbon Club Assortment, but of course! It sparkles, it shines and it's a match made in heaven with my little gingerbread house easel card! 💖 it! I made a big double bow for the chimney using 2 of the beautiful ribbons from this assortment; Diamond Satin Old Gold and Holiday Dots and Gold Ovals on White Satin Ribbon. I added a Silver Glitter Stardust Heart Shaped Rhinestone to the center of the double bow.
For the decorations on the front of the house, I used 3D foam sheets, then added gold glitter foil to them. I made 2 small bows using 3/8" Satin with Silver Metallic Edge White and added a rhinestone heart to each center, then I placed them atop each gold lollipop.
What a shimmery, glittery good time this festive easel card was to put together! I hope you like it!
And that's all for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share a bit of holiday inspiration with you! Until next time, happy crafting!

Autumn Woodlands Folio and a new Ribbon Crush

Hello, Friends!  Oh, how I love fall!  This Autumn Woodlands Folio reminds me of walking on crunchy leaves under a warm blue sky as squirrels and little woodland creatures scurry all around me. 

See that beautiful ribbon closure?  It's my latest ribbon crush from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This 3/4" Variegated Sheer Ribbon comes in a multitude of shades...and I might just have added them all to my shopping cart in my last trip to RRR.  This particular shade, Moss Green/Taupe is simply stunning with fall colors.  But I think it would look amazing with vintage Christmas papers as well!

Ribbon closures are my favorite way to hold a gatefold folio like this one together.  This ribbon is extra easy to work with, and has a gorgeous soft shimmer that really adds a touch of elegance to the cover design.  Would you like a peek at what's behind the gates on this sweet little 5" x 6 1/2" folio?

Well, first, Mr. Fox is here to welcome you inside! 

One of the things I love about a gatefold design is all the little nooks and crannies that appear as you open the door.

I created a box style pocket in the center panel of the card.  I just love all the yummy woodland elements in this paper collection from Ciao Bella, don't you?

Sweet treats inside the box style pocket turn this into a lovely little gift.

And where there is honey, one simply must have tea!  And a vintage silver plate teaspoon to go along with it!

The little hedgehog panel on the left has a magnetic closure, and a secret hidden page where you can tuck in a note, a gift card or photo.

And here is a look at the back side of the folio.  I've attached the ribbon under the patterned paper, then wrapped it around the spines and under one of the gates.  This way, you can tie the album securely, but open it easily.

I hope I've introduced you to a lovely new style of ribbon. If you are new to tying bows, you are sure to love it, as it is soft and easy to tie.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Harvest with Lilybean!

Hello everyone.  Today I'm excited to share this sweet harvest card I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon and My Makers Movement using the darling Home For the Holidays stamp set and Matching Die set.  I absolutely LOVE these! I also used the beautiful ribbons and adhesives from RRR!  

On my card below I used the beautiful ivory brown and copper plaid ribbon to create my bow.
To start with, I chose my design papers.  I have tons of these sheets, so I started with a 6 x 6 card base, then cut the brown in 5 3/4" x 5 3/4", then layered the design paper on that (5 1/2" x 5 1/2") the next layer was done.

The truck was stamped and colored using Copic markers.  I then used the coordinating die to cut it out, and then finished coloring it up, so no white edges showed. I stamped the sweet sentiment on the truck door using my mini misty tool. The pumpkins I did the same.

The greenery was cut using the fall pumpkin die, and cut in a green card stock, then I dusted it using the Tim Holtz peeled paint Distress Ink, and the Judykins duster. The rims, and bumper were colored in a grey metallic marker and then I added glossy accents to them.

Happy Harvest is from the same stamp set and was stamped using vintage photo.

and foam squares and tape runner refill as well!

And that sweet face you see, well that is our dear Lilybean (Lily) she is our newest member to the Walker family and is a Persian Kitten, and she is so SWEEET!

My Makers Movement Home for the Holidays Stamp Set
