Swingin' By Triple Easel Card

Hello, Friends!  I thought I'd just swing on by today with a super cute and cheery triple easel card.

With fall peeping around the corner, the squirrels in my back yard have been hustling and bustling around stocking their pantries with acorns.  This inspired me to create a super cute triple easel card with bright cheery, colors.

I found the perfect playmate for this card in 1/2"  Orange, Fuchsia and Lavender Checkered Ribbon. 

This ribbon ties the most beautiful bows!  Loopy burlap string bows match the kraft cardstock base, and lend a nice, woodsy feel to the ribbon cluster. 

My hand made flowers are died to match the ribbon, but you can find some great Wild Orchard Crafts Flowers in the RRR Shop.

I used burlap string a second time to tie these cute miniature acorns on the sentiment panel.  It's just amazing how a little bit of ribbon or fiber can make an embellishment come to life.

This was my first attempt at making a triple easel card.  After a little trial and error, I came up with a method that worked well for me.  So I created a little video tutorial to share with you here today.  This is just for building the triple easel card base, not for adding the card layers or embellishments.  I hope you enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thank you card

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to you all! today I have a special card I made for a special someone to say Thank you! Made this one using all Really Reasonable Ribbon flowers and ribbons. Love making thank you cards and using the beautiful ribbons from RRR store.

On my card for today I chose to use the beautiful Delicate Stitched(One of my many favs) in Mineral Ice color. I made two bows and set them close to each other when gluing them down. Next I placed the beautiful Chelsea Rose in pink on the green leaves, and then using other flowers I added them all. I will list them all below.

So I have to tell ya, that I had this little girl stamped up and colored in other colors, so that motivated or gave me inspiration for this one. I stamped her in club scrap black ink, and then colored her with copic markers. It was so much fun, I need to get stamping again, and use my stamps.
The thank you stamp is from Our Daily bread and is an old one. Its stamped in black too. My design papers came from a paper pad that is a 6 x 6 and I cant remember the name.

I really enjoyed making my card for today, and Hope you enjoyed my post! thank you so much!

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies used:
Chelsea Rose
Green Leaves
Delicate Stitched Satin Mineral Ice
Foam squares
scotch advanced Tape runner refill
Rose buds in pink and the yellows
sweetheart blossom
Mini open Rose
Cosmo Daisy

Hugs to all,

Choose Joy Greeting Card

Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a new card I created with my fav RRR trim.

This is a good way away from my usual color palate. I typically go with shabby chic.
 I feel like this is a nature inspired card with the print on the journal card and all the florals.
I love the mix of black and kraft and also polka dot and stripe.
I went for a monochromatic kind of  arrangement with all the same toned creme colored flowers.
The super beautiful bold check ribbon tied into a poofy bow topped with twine and a button.

Wishing you a happy and productive day : ) G

Autumn Kanzashi Hair Clip

Hello there ribbon lovers.  Bonnie here again today and I'm sharing another fun Kanzashi creation using ribbon and accessories from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
This would be great as a hair accessory for an adult by adding a French Clip or other clip of your choice.  It would also make a nice pin for a jacket or bag by adding a Pin Back.

I added a Metal Charm to the center and topped it off with a Flat Back Pearl Embellishment.  You can color any white pearl embellishment with Copic Markers or other alcohol inks.  No need to keep a variety of colors on hand.  Just make up the different colors as you need them.

This Kanzashi Creation was made with all 1-1/2" Solid Grosgrain Ribbons using the petal variation in the video below.  While it looks very large in the photo, it only measures a little more than 3-1/4" at the widest point.  It's the perfect size for an understated hair clip.

Kanzashi Ribbon Flower Petal #1
To view this video on YouTube, please click HERE.

For the top layer of tangerine petals on my project today, I used the technique to create different size petals using all 1-1/2" ribbon squares.  You can find that video tutorial HERE.

I encourage you to give Kanzashi a try.  I bet you'll be hooked!
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  As always, I would love to have you swing by my Make Time to Craft blog as well and follow me over there.  Happy crafting!

Sweet Dreams Autumn Sunset Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Fall is peeping around the corner, so it's time to break out your August Ribbon Club Assortment.  Today's Sweet Dream Autumn Sunset card is loaded with fall imagery, gorgeous mixed media texture and of course, beautiful ribbons and flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I am loving the plaid ribbons in the August Club.  This 3/8" brown/ivory plaid is the perfect accent for this 5 1/2" square card.  Ribbon is a lovely way to add texture to your cards and layouts. 

After tying this 2 1/2" double loop bow with my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool, I topped it with Mixed Earth Tone Cottage Roses from Wild Orchard Crafts.  These little 25mm roses are the perfect size to add to a bow cluster. 

Inside the card, I added some pretty paper layers and a pocket.

Then I used my scraps to make this little tea bag wallet.

You could also use this as a gift card holder if you did not want to add the tea.

Fall is my favorite season of the year, so I am really enjoying the August Ribbon Club assortment.  After the hot summer we've endured here in North Carolina, I hope you will forgive me for wanting crisp autumn days and cooler autumn nights! 

Wishing you a day filled with joy and creativity!

Life Is An Adventure

Welcome by the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog today, friends.  Thanks for visiting as I (Karen) share a fun card I created using just a few of my RRR favorites!  I started with some fun patterned papers and chipboard (camper) that I picked up at my local Tuesday Morning....always great bargains there!  The sentiment (Life Is An Adventure) is from Paper Sweeties.  Everything else can be found at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I ran a length of the lovely Fuchsia Wrinkled Ribbon down the center of my card.  I bundled some Ivory Burlap String and Navy Burlap String and layered that with some peach magnolias from the Magnolias Mixed Pastels and several navy sweetheart blossoms (from the Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms Mixed Blues), peach sweetheart blossoms (from the Mixed Peach/Orange), and some Miniature Ivory Sweetheart Blossoms.
There are so many gorgeous Mulberry Flowers at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and as you can see on this card; they accent our stamped images so nicely.  I almost framed the journalling spot with my cascading flowers on this card,  I could have gone completely crazy and put them a garden.  But I tried to use some restraint....LOL.  You're always sure to find the perfect ribbons, trims and embellishments at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hello Friend Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a summer inspired greeting card.

I'm not sure why but blue check and yellow is very summery to me.
Speaking of checks....this checkerboard ribbon is a double dose of checks!
The tag in the center is the perfect sentiment for this card. That little bird on wood grain is a great combination.
Lots of pretty flowers here to fill in this corner,
A pair of charms and a vintage button are the perfect finishing touches for this card.

*NEW* August Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hi there ribbon lovers!  Today is August 1st, so we are introducing an all NEW Ribbon Club Assortment today here at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Since Autumn is quickly approaching, the August Ribbon Club Assortment is an Autumn themed mix of ribbon.

Not a member yet?
The August assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed mix.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

Still have one foot in Summer?  
Grab our Ribbon Club Special Deal for US residents and pick up July and August for a low introductory price!

I don't know about you, but an autumn color palette is one of my most favorite to work with.  Such gorgeous rich colors.  I just love everything about autumn.
This time I made a Thank You card, but it could just as easily work for any occasion by just switching out the sentiment.  I created some paper for the leaf with Distress and Distress Oxide Inks.  They are so much fun to work with. 
My bottom layer is a natural mulberry paper with some leaf inclusions that make it perfect for autumn projects.

For a video tutorial on how I use mulberry paper on my projects, please click HERE.
My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color double-loop bow created on my Bow-it-All Tool using two of the ribbons from the August Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also used two other ribbons from the assortment across the center of the card under my sentiment.

For a video tutorial on how to create this pretty bow, please click HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more information on the other products used on my card, please visit my Make Time to Craft Blog.  Have a crafty weekend!
