Guest Designer - Gloria Stengel

Hello, everyone! My name is Gloria Stengel, from Scraps of Life, and I'm your Really Reasonable Ribbon Guest Designer for today! I was thrilled when Bonnie asked me to help out this month because I'm a huge fan of ribbon! And an even bigger fan of Really Reasonable Ribbon! (Especially that "reasonable" part!)

I've created four projects for you. You can see two here, and two on my blog! How is that for some extra ribbon fun?! Here is project #1.

 I created a simple and elegant card by using the brown ribbon from the Autumn Diamond Satin Assortment and Glubers to create a rolled ribbon rose. That chocolate brown makes my mouth water!

I added some pearls for dramatic interest to the rolled rose. Creating these spectacular roses is so easy, when you use the Glubers adhesive! You simply stick, roll, twist!

For my next project I used two different ribbons, plus some baker's twine!

I stamped the image and colored her with Copic Markers, then, I created layers of paper and ribbon to make this fun "all star" card!

I wrapped the card with a layer of Black Silk, then a layer of golden yellow ribbon from the Autumn Diamond Satin Assortment, and finished off by wrapping Black Licorice Baker's Twine around everything. I tied the ticket on with more Baker's Twine. I also used a bit of Ranger Distress Ink to color the twine, so that it would be more cream and less white.

The ribbon made it an All Star card!

Here are some sneak peeks of two more cards you can see if you visit my blog today!

I hope you enjoyed my visit with you!
