Guest Designer- Chris Olsen

Hello, everyone! My name is Chris Olsen from Twinkles Glow With Stamps aka Glowbug on Splitcoast Stampers, and I'm your Really Reasonable Ribbon Guest Designer for today! I was thrilled when Bonnie asked me to be a guest this month because I LOVE Ribbon!!  

I've created a few holiday projects for you since it seems like Christmas is just around the corner. You can see a card here as well as part of a gift ensemble, and the rest will be on my blog ! 
I hope my creations get you in a festive spirit!!

First, I have a card I created using brown 1/2 inch wrinkled ribbon and the bow easy .  I decided to make a triple bow rather than a single bow and put a button in the middle.

My next project is part of a gift set.  I have a card and a decorative candle on display here.  I used a variety of lace and ribbon  including periwinkle 1/2 inch wrinkled ribbon ,  5/16 inch gold ric rac, and 1.5 inch gold metallic lace on my card.  

The candle uses 1.5 inch white wrinkled ribbon and 1.5 inch gold metallic lace.

The touches of gold and blue ribbon and lace just adds to the elegance of this holiday gift set.
For the remainder of the set please click here to go to my blog.

Here are some sneak peeks:

I hope you have been somehow inspired by my creations.  Thanks for stopping by!!!

Other supplies:
The stamps I used for my first card are Christmas Rose and Seed Packet stamp sets from Our Daily Bread Designs. The designer paper is from Basic Grey Capella.
The stamps on the card and candle in the gift ensemble are from Our Daily Bread Designs Holiday ornaments and cut out with the Spellbinders Holiday Tags.
