Eggstra Special Easter Card

 Hello crafty friends, hope you all are doing well and staying safe. Ive been trying to get some fun sewing and crafting in lately as ive been home. This little Easter card is one Ive made while home, and it sure was fun to make. I used all Really Reasonable Ribbon supplies and My Makers Movement dies and stamps  on this.
 On my card I started with some cute Easter design paper layers, and then cut out the Nested tag using the Makers Movement Nested square tags die set, and layered them up. Next I added sewing and then the DARLING little chick from the Eggstra special day stamp and die set. That little Happy Easter banner is from the Mini File Folder set.  I added Really Reasonable Ribbon in brown Satin Shimmer, and then the Pearl Pink Diamond ribbon on top of the brown for a double bow.

flowers- I used Really Reasonable Ribbons Magnolias Mixed Pastels blue flower and then added 2 Open Roses 20mm in Pink from the Mixed Pastels as well. The rose buds came from white and cream rose buds set.

The design papers are oldies that ive had in my stash and wanted to use today. Love them! Its funny out of ALL the design papers I have, I'm super low on Easter ones. Anyways I enjoyed creating this super darling card for today and hope you enjoy it as well!

Button Card/Gift Card Holder

Hello, everyone!  Thanks for visiting me today as I, Karen Letchworth, share a few projects with you.  Please excuse my lengthy post today....I made several cards that I want to share; including this sweet button card I created using some of the AWESOME products found at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Anyway...I started with some fun Echo Park patterned papers, journaling cards, border stickers, ephemera, etc. to create my base.  Once I knew where I wanted to lay all my snippets of papers and stickers, I cut small strips of Scor-Tape to adhere everything securely to my cardstock base.  If you're not familiar, Scor-Tape is an amazing Adhesive, and it comes in several convenient widths for various projects.
As I mentioned, the button card itself is a journaling tag from this Echo Park line.  I made that the focal point of my card by adding things to some of the squares on the button card.  In the lower left-hand corner, I added a doily sticker topped with a Pastel Green Open Rose with its stem curled up all cute (that's because the stems are reinforced with a thin wire to help them do this fun trick).  On the upper right-hand square, I added a 16mm Pearl Heart Ribbon Slide with a piece of Ivory Crochet Lace pulled through it; and underneath that, you'll see several Flat Green Double Head Stamens and Flat Wine Red Double Head Stamens.
From the Ribbon Slide treatment, I used a Rusty Pear Shaped Safety Pin to hang a small die-cut tag that I stamped with the sentiment smile.  You'll also see, in the very upper left corner of my card, I attached a Plaid Cabachon to my card, again using a small piece of Scor-Tape.
I also decorated the inside of this card; and that's because I wanted to include a small glassine bag where I could tuck in a gift card (because this is going to someone who needs a little help right now in the way of some grocery money...so I'll tuck in a gift card).  I added snippets of patterned paper using more  Scor-Tape.  LOVE that stuff!!

I also added a length of Light Pink Gingham Ribbon, and also wrapped a nice long lenth of Teal Baker's Twine.  I topped that with a darling Pink Miniature Sweetheart Blossom.  Can we talk about Baker's Twine?  At just TEN CENTS ($0.10) per yard, and in over 40 gorgeous colors including 13+ solids; Baker's Twine is such an awesome useful accent.
OK....one last card.  I promise this is the last one (for today).  It's just that when I start working with all the pretty Ribbons and Trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon, I just can't stop myself.  I decided to make just one more card using this same Echo Park line.  I stamped the sentiment onto a die-cut doily and ran a long length of Cherry Baker's Twine around my card several times, and tied it into a bow.

I also ran a length of Black Gingham Ribbon across my card, and I used the Black Gingham Ribbon in my ribbon treatment along with lengths of Robin's Egg Wrinkle Ribbon, Red Wrinkle Ribbon, and Cream Seam Binding.  You'll also a Mulberry Leaf, several Red Double Head Stamens, Milk White Double Head Stamens, and Green Double Head Stamens topped with a Red Open Rose, Pastel Green Open Rose and an Ivory Open Rose.  Lots of pretty Iridescent Metallic String is bundled up underneath everything, and it sparkles when you see it in person.  SO pretty!

You're always sure to find loads of gorgeous products at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and lots of great inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.  We sure hope you'll stop by again soon.

Blessings,
Karen

Vintage Inspired Sewing Themed Greeting Card

Hello friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a sewing themed greeting card with beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I admit I don't sew. I mean to say I can.....I just usually don't. Unless a button needs reattached or a scout patch needs added to a sash lol. 

I'm using my favorite shabby chic color inspiration for this greeting card. There's just something so vintagy about pink and white.


 I've created a tag shaped focal point from one of the journal cards from the collection and layered it over the patterned papers and die cuts.
There's loopy twine bows tucked into these pretty flowers. It really helps to fill in the arrangement and softens the hard edges.
The pretty wrinkle ribbon bow is topped with a second loopy bow and vintage button.

Please join me for a tutorial....

Wishing everyone  a happy and productive day : ) G

Plant Kindness Grow Love card Duo by Cherry Nelson



Hello my paper friends, Cherry here!  I hope and pray that all is well with you at this trying time.  I created these cards for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I feel that we all need some uplifting these days, so with that in mind I created these bright happy cards. 



I used 5/8 Satin Swiss mini dots ribbon in Apple Green.  I  also added some pretty pink Chrysanthemums . 







 I always think of Hope and renewal when I see a Butterfly and thought this one was fitting for this card. 





My second card uses 3/8 Checkerboard satin in Geranium Pink which contrasts so well with the Spring green pattern paper I used. 






I added a few finishing details to each card and they are both ready to cheer someone up!  Never forget that something homemade can reassure someone in times of worry. 










I am loving the combination of pinks, greens, and peaches.



I will continue to pray for all!  I hope you find some inspiration and cheer today! 
                                                           xoxo, Cherry

Pretty Ribbons and Spring Flowers

Must Have Flowers Carta Bella Farmhouse Card Folio by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

Hello Friends!  I Must Have Flowers always and always!  Do you feel that way?  I'm not much of a gardener, but I do love pretty floral papers and paper flowers on my projects.  This sweet little springtime card features beautiful ribbons from the March Ribbon Club Assortment.


Light Coral Diamond Satin Ribbon is absolutely dreamy with this paper collection.  I've paired it up with some Iridescent Metallic String in the bow cluster. Iridescent string always adds just the right touch of shimmer to a project.  I use it so often that I buy it a roll at a time.

 



Turn this pretty card into a gift by adding a couple of pockets on the inside.  Fill the top pocket  with a color matched tea bag, note card, and decorated honey stick.


 

Decorate a pretty bookmark with Coral Rose Swiss Dots Satin and Petal Peach Quatrefoil Satin Ribbon.  Stitch the paper bookmark pieces onto some canvas to make a  soft bookmark that will last a long time. 

I hope I've shared some tips, tricks and ideas you can use in your own crafty adventures.

Thanks for stopping by!
Cheerio,
kathy

RRR Decorated Milk Jar Mini

Hello everyone , welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog! Hope you are all doing well! Today I have a Mini Milk Jar I had purchased after Christmas and figured they would work perfect for decorating with RRR flowers and Ribbons, Loving how this turned out. I figured it could hold either Candy to give as a gift or maybe buttons or something else. Super fun and easy to decorate.

On this i started with the Robbins Egg wrinkled Ribbon and then added the gingham print on top. I used the hot glue gun to add it to the jar. Next I chose to use the Yellow Chrysanthemums to the ribbon and then added 3 rose buds. I tucked the tag under using one of the foam squares from RRR and the little ladybug was also added using a foam square. want an easy project , this is it! And super fun to make.

Hope you all enjoyed my post for today and thank you for stopping by! Hugs to all,
