Celebrate Sunshine by Cherry Nelson

Hello RRR paper peeps!  Cherry here to share a project made for Really Reasonable Ribbon.
 I am in desperate need of some Sunshine. We keep on getting unruly temperamental weather.  I decided to create my own colorful garden of flowers and sunshine in my studio to get me by.

I used Victoria crochet lace in white to wrap around my hoop, along the bottom as a border, and also as my bow.  The background fabric is vintage matelasse. I love the texture it adds.

 The flowers are created using fabric diecuts and wool felt.  I made the center of each of my flowers by sewing glass seed pearls by hand.  I purposely left some of the thread to create a fun shabby look.

 I also added a sweet vintage crochet frame and hand stamped tag. 

I love all the layers of each flower and the dimension it adds.

 That is it for me....I hope you are finding some sunshine either outside or inside!  Cherry

Vintage Bits, Bobbles & Beautiful Ribbon

Welcome by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today, friends! I don't know about you, but sometimes I find myself falling into a creative rut and I forget to think outside the box now and then.  So, I decided that it's time for something different and therefore; today's Really Reasonable Ribbon project is something a bit different and fun.
I used a pink crochet doily for the base, and the little tin cup is just an antique baking trinket.  I made a little "nest" of trims inside the antique tin by layering Ivory Burlap String1/2" Pink Wrinkled Ribbon, lots of gorgeous Miniature Double Head Stamens, and some lovely White Crochet Lace.
Then I attached a vintage wooden spool of pink thread with a wooden rock candy stick through the middle.  I tied some of the 1/2" Pink Wrinkled Ribbon, and White Crochet Lace to the wooden stick, and also attached some Open Roses as a lovely finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my project.  There's always lots of great inspiration here on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, so be sure to stop by often.  I hope you've enjoyed my project today, and that the rest of your week is happy, creative and blessed.  I'd love to have you stop by my blog to say hello.

Perfectly Poised Shabby Chic Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  I've had such fun this month with the March Ribbon Club Assortment, how about you?  I had just enough Charcoal Checkerboard Satin Ribbon to make a fabulous bow cluster on this Perfectly Poised Shabby Chic Card.

This chic color combo is perfectly paired for the Poised Collection from Authentique Paper.

Yellow Organza Ribbon adds a jolt of color to the bow cluster that I tied with my Zutter Bow it All Tool

TIP: Brush Wild Orchid Crafts Cottage Roses with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to add definition and depth to the lovely petals. 

And here's a peek at the inside!

It's fun to add color, texture and dimension to a card with ribbons and flowers!  I hope I've shared some tips and tricks you can use in your own crafty adventures!

Thanks for stopping by!

Shabby Chic Decorated Egg w/ Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to all! Today I have a super sweet Glitter Egg that I decorated with all Really Reasonable Ribbon, using the Gorgeous Ribbons, Lace, Seam Binding, and flowers that Bonnie at RRR carries. Love them all!!

On the egg I started with the lace, and used the wide Cindy lace, and Bonnie has others that are so pretty, you can find them Here. I then made a big bow out of the Delicate Stitched Ribbon, and then the Lace, and then used the Canvas Colored Band in Pink (LOVE this), of course I love all Ribbons...hehehehe 

So after doing all of my ribbon work for the bows, now its time to layer the flowers. I started with the Pink Carnation and green leaves 30mm, which now you cant see. After that I ruched up the checkered ribbon, if you pull a strand it ruches very nicely, or you can pull the plastic part at the top or the bottom, be careful when doing so, you can pull it out completely. Anyways once I did ruche it up I hot glued it under the sides of my carnation on both sides. I did add a Rose bud on both sides, however for some reason the one side fell out, and i forgot to hot glue it. I also added some Aster Daisy's as well.

**I save all my stems from all these flowers, I try to cut them up high close to the flower, and then I can use the wire to tie my bows. Its nice to recycle and use up all the wire for other things.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies:
Lace (cindy)

other supplies:
Plastic Easter Egg(walmart)
Hot Glue Gun
Wire(I save all the stems from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Flowers)

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, and thank you so much for stopping by! Have a lovely day!
Hugs to all!

Hello Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty Peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a greeting card I created with a garden full of gorgeous WOC flowers and trims from RRR.

Oh how I love these gorgeous spring inspired flowers. The roses are just the perfect vintagy pink color.
Pink plaid and wood grain are such a sweet and chic all at the same time.
I'm using a doily die cut from crisp white and skeleton leaves to brighten things up.

MUST HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS!!!!!  I really love a full arrangement and tucking in some die cut leaves and loopy twine bows helps to fill in this collection and anchor it to the corner.
Last but not least a pretty softly colored bow with a brad top and metal charms.

~Really Reasonable Ribbon~Diamond Satin Ivory, Chrysanthemum, Chelsea Rose, Ivory Burlap String.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

All Cards Need Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello to all of you paper-crafty, ribbon and flower loving friends!  Welcome by today as I share a series of cards I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using a sweet line called Spring Market by Carta Bella.  I made several cards using this line, and as always....the cards are much sweeter when I've added some of the lovely touches from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I won't repeat the patterned papers, stickers, ephemera, chipboard, etc. for each card because every single one in this post uses that same Carta Bella Spring Market line.  I'll just let y'all know which RRR products I used on each card.  And I'll tell you this...Really Reasonable Ribbon ALWAYS has the perfect ribbons, trims, Mulberry Flowers and Embellishments to match everything we make.  I really mean it when I say that "All Cards Need Really Reasonable Ribbon".
Like all of my cards, this first card (above) was put together using strips of Scor-Tape; a fabulous Adhesive to help hold together your cards and projects for many years to come.  This first card also includes a length of the lovely Moss Green Seam Binding.
My second card includes some Mulberry Flowers including the Miniature Ivory Sweetheart Blossoms as well as Mixed Pink Sweetheart Blossoms.  I also bundled up some Ivory Burlap String and placed it underneath each flower cluster.  Did you know that we carry nearly 20 colors of Burlap String?  It's another fabulous trim that costs just ten cents per yard, and is the perfect touch for SO many products. 
Card number three includes Cream Seam Binding, some Moss Green Seam BindingOpen RosesMiniature Ivory Sweetheart Blossoms and Miniature Pink Sweetheart Blossoms.  I also tucked in a few Double-Head Stamens.  I love them SO much!
My fourth card includes some White Seam BindingVivid Pink Seam Binding, and to perfectly match the colors in my sweet patterned papers, I used lots of GORGEOUS Sweetheart Blossoms including lots of flowers from the Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms in Mixed Purples/Lilacs and a WOC Green Mulberry Leaf, as well as Ivory Burlap String and (once again) lots of wonderful Double-Head Stamens.
The fifth card I'm sharing today incorporates my bow using a length of Cream Seam Binding, and just one lonely little Mixed Pink Sweetheart Blossom.  It doesn't matter if you use a little bit of embellishing or a whole lot.  Each card has some little touch of goodness from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
My sixth and final card for today uses just one extra touch.....and that would be the sweet little pieces of Solid Cream Baker's Twine tied from my three tags.  This AMAZING trim comes in over 30 gorgeous colors and costs just ten cents ($0.10) per yard.  There's a perfect color for every project and it's got so many fabulous uses.  You'd be surprised just how REASONABLE the products at Really Reasonable Ribbon really are.  Not only do they carry an awesome selection, but prices are low and shipping is very reasonable.  Today is a great day to treat yourself!
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I sure hope you'll join us in two short days from now for the monthly Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop.  YOU could be the lucky winner of the gorgeous Ribbon Club Assortment this month (shown above).  I hope to see you there.  There's always something FUN happening at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Enjoy Your Retirement Masculine Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  I love to make masculine cards just as much as I enjoy making frilly feminine ones.  And the March Ribbon Club Assortment is filled with great ribbons for masculine cards! 

Charcoal Checkerboard Satin Ribbon is the perfect complement for this gatefold style card.  


Attach the ribbon to the back of the card with 1/2" Scor-Tape.

To add a pop of color to the inside panel of the card, I added 3/8" Red Mini Swiss Dots Satin to a strip of 1/4" Scor-Tape.  I love the way this brightens up the inside of the card.

This card measures 4 1/4" x 6 1/4" and is made with one sheet of 8 1/2" x 11 cardstock.  I simply trimmed the height to 6 1/4" then scored at 4 1/4" and again at 8 1/2 to make the card base.

I think I'm going to have lots of fun making cards with this month's ribbon club.  How about you?

Thanks for stopping by!
