Down on the Farm



Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Welcome to farm country!  I've used some beautiful ribbons from the June 2021 Southwest Vibe Ribbon Club Assortment to make this cute Down on the Farm Fun Fold Card.  I wanted you to see how versatile this month's assortment is.  It works perfectly for trendy Southwest influenced projects, but it also pairs beautifully with farmhouse style!  How fun is that?

The pretty bow cluster on the front flap of this fun fold card is made with Light Coral Taffeta Ribbon and Light Coral Satin Swiss Dots Ribbon from the club assortment.  They complement the shades of aqua in the paper collection and they also pick up on the coral flowers in the background. 

I also created a little nest for my mama hen using Natural Burlap String from the shop. I love this stuff so much, I buy it by the spool!   Here's a peek at the rest of the panels in this barnyard beauty.

The front flap is held in place with a hidden magnet. I think fun fold cards are exciting to open.  You never know what is coming around the next fold!   Don't you just love these sweet barnyard critters?

You can create a little pocket with a decorative flap inside the card by scoring and folding one of the 4" x 6 journal cards.  Fold the back side of the image to the front, dress it up with some ephemera bits, then glue down the sides to make a pocket. 


If you glue down just the outside edges of the coral flowers, you make a tuck spot for this 3" x 4" mini notecard.  This is a great place to tuck in a little note, or tea bag or gift card.

Have you had a chance to play with your Southwest Vibe Ribbons yet?  What did you make?  I'd love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

Someone I love Card by Cheryl

Hello Ribbon Lovers, and Happy Wednesday to you all! Today I have this super darling card I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the gorgeous ribbons, flowers, and supplies. Hope you enjoy my post for today.
On my card I chose to use lots of layers because I love using layers on all my cards. Each layer not only has sewing but I also added dots using a gel pen. I layered up the sentiment using different die cuts. Around the sentiment I chose to use RRR roses in pinks, and then the pink satin ribbon.  I love how it turned out. All layers are popped up using the foam squares, and I also used the scotch advance tape refill for each layer. Lastly I did the inside to complete my card for today.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a lovely day! 

Hugs, Cheryl

HELLO

HELLO, blog friends and crafters.  We're SO glad that you've stopped by to visit today.  It's me, your friend Karen again; and I'm sharing a pretty little card that I created with some FAB products I love from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  If you're anything like me, you LOVE a good bargain and you LOVE pretty things.  Well, this particular card features a few items that are both great bargains AND super pretty.
I used some colored cardstocks and some pretty Crate Paper (Pretty Party) patterned papers and ephemera (post card) to create my card base.  All the layers of cardstocks and patterned papers are securely adhered together using cut strips of Scor-Tape.   This is an AWESOME Adhesive that I use quite a bit; especially when I really want something held together so that it will last a good long time.
To adorn my card, I used some bundled Black Burlap String and bundled Ivory Burlap String topped with several lovely Miniature Double Head Stamens including some Green, some light Pink, some darker Pink, and some Black.  I topped that with a double bow tied with lengths of the lovely Robin's Egg Wrinkle Ribbon.  Then, I added a pretty Multi-Colored Mulberry Leaf and a Deep Ivory Open Rose.
You may see that I also used a bit of metal hardware on my card.  The pretty bow has a tag hanging from it where I stamped the word friend.  It's hanging from a Rusty Bronze Pear-Shaped Safety Pin on kraft paper that inked on the edges.  You can find lots of cool Embellishments at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  There's also a Tim Holtz miniature paperclip in the upper right.  The sentiment (hello) is a die-cut from my stash that I layered in black and teal.  OK....so I've shown you the "PRETTY" and now, if you'll remember I also mention BARGAINS, right?  Check out this awesome breakdown:

Double Head Stamens - $2.14 for 400 pieces - Comes in 20+ colors
Burlap String - $ 0.10/yard or 10 yards/$1 - Comes in 17+ colors
Wrinkle Ribbon -  $0.35/yard or $1.40/4 yards - Comes in 24+ colors

WOW!  How are those for bargains?  And those are RRR every-day prices.  Be sure to visit the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog often to learn about special sales and promotions and to see  lots of wonderful inspiration.  It's always so nice to have you visit.

Blessings,
Karen

Thank You Greeting Card

 Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a bright and cheerful thank you greeting card.


This is one of may favorite color combinations. That gorgeous bright pink paired with the navy makes for a striking contrast.

There's a perfectly coordinating sentiment tag that's popped up on spacers for added dimension. Additional die cut banner shapes help to fill in the corner and lighten up the dark background.

These gorgeous blooms all come from RRR. I've layered them with stamped and colored, and die cut foliage and loopy twine bows to create a generously sized arrangement.


Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Summer Elegance Shaker Card

Really Reasonable Ribbon Pink Ivory Mauve Variegated Ribbon Shaker Card by Kathy Clement



















Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  It's hard to believe, but here in North Carolina, Summertime is peeking around the corner.  Creamy white blossoms on the magnolia trees fill the air with their sweet fragrance.  Their appearance inspired this Summer Elegance Shaker Card.  Soft shades of pink ribbons seemed to be the perfect partner for this 5" x 7" top fold card.

Heartfelt Creations Sweet Magnolia Shaker Card with Really Reasonable Ribbon by Kathy Clement




















As you all probably know, I love to use ribbon to create a border on a card.  Medium Pink Gingham Ribbon complemented the floral images in the paper collection perfectly.  Dress up the border with a ribbon slide from the RRR Embellishment Category





















I dressed up my handmade magnolia blossoms with a poufy Light Pink, Ivory and Mauve Sheer Variegated Ribbon bow.  Tying a triple loop bow is not as hard as you might think.  Just break out your Zutter-Bow-it-All Tool and you'll have a perfectly poufy bow in no time flat!   Top with with an Iridescent Metallic String Bow for the perfect finishing touch. 





















Here's a peek inside the card...which is actually more like a gift, thanks to all the goodies tucked inside.

I hope I've shared some tips and tricks that you can use in your next ribbon adventure.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy
