Stitched Easter Card & Bookmark

I think Easter has to be one of my most favorite holidays for crafting.  I just love all things pastel, soft and sweet, and of course.....covered in ribbons and bows.  Really Reasonable Ribbon always has the perfect trims and accents for every project I make.  They can help you find the perfect products and "special touches" for your next project as well.
I have always loved stitching dies, cross-stitching, and making various things than can incorporate my cross-stitching with my card-making.  This duo was a lot of fun to make.  I used corrugated cardboard for the base of both my card and the matching bookmark.  I like to use scraps of paper whenever possible.  Some are so cute that you just hate throwing them out, you know?  Here's an occasion to use them.
I used some Brushed Corduroy Ink to "stain" or "dirty" my lengths of Bay Leaf Seam Binding.  I also bundled some Natural Burlap String and placed atop the embroidery hoops as well as in the pretty bow where I tucked in a few Double Head Stamens.  There are so many soft sweet touches at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I thought it would be a cute idea to make a matching bookmark for this sweet card.  I found both of the cross-stitch images on Pinterest.  All those wonderful layers are securely attached using lots of fabulous Scor-Tape.  There are several lengths of Green Apple Seam Binding hanging from the top of the bookmark.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you'll visit the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog often for lots of great inspiration and then do some shopping at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Treat yourself.   I hope you have a really great week.

Rainbow of Roses Card

Hello! Misty (@Mommyofkidz) here today
to share a cute little St. Patty's Day card with you. 
I have ZERO natural talent when it comes to 
card making, so I usually leave that to the pros.
However, I have been wanting to do this 
"Rainbow of Roses" card for quite a while now! 

I started with ribbons and roses from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store
 and an svg. bundle from Bonnie Garby Designs. 
Also, if you have Cricut Design Space, you can find 
many of her images there as well.  
I actually think this one may have actually come from there. 

I cut the entire image in white cardstock and used distress inks to add the colors. I found matching ribbons and tiny rose buds to match each color that I used in my rainbow. I used the Wild Orchid 10mm Pastel Open Roses  and they were the perfect size for this project. All of the ribbons are 3/8 inch Swiss Dots grosgrain except the one chevron which I think came from an assortment pack.  Once I had all my materials gathered, I set to work making it come to life. 

Once it was inked, I added the outlines using a white gel pen and
then attached the ribbons and roses. I added each piece to the backing that I had cut with black cardstock, and added the faux stitching outlines to that as well. Notice that I let the ribbons cascade down past the end of the card?  I was hoping to make it look like the rainbow was never-ending. I don't know how well that worked...but that was the thought behind it.
Either way, I liked the extra effect that it created. 

Finally, I added the entire rainbow to my gatefold card that I had prepared with a bit of distress inks and heavy white gesso to create a cloud background while also adding a bit of texture. 

As I mentioned in the beginning, I have ZERO natural talent when it comes to cards.  When I was finished with all of the design process, I realized that I didn't leave any space on the front for a sentiment! 
This is why I leave the card making to the Pros!!!

Thank you all for stopping by today. 
I hope that I have inspired in some way. If you like this card, head on over to Really Reasonable Ribbon to collect all the supplies! Stay Crafty My Friends!!

Candy Popper with Really Reasonable Ribbon


Hello crafty friends, today I have a fun little candy popper I designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon. Love the gorgeous Ribbons on the ends, and the darling gnome design paper, super fun and cute!

So I did use the scor-tape from Really Reasonable Ribbon to attach my papers to the popper. I made this popper using a board that designs them for us. The Ribbon is the Plaid Red Bold Checked and is one of my many favorites from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I also used some red dew drops from The Robins Nest on my box here. this little box can hold some candy or a small gift. super fun to make! 

Thank you so very much for stopping by and hope you have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,
