Winter Blues Shaker Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Winter days can be long and dark and cold.  So here's a lovely little Winter Blues Shaker Card to brighten your day.

 I've adorned it with a country fresh Gray Plaid Bow and sparkling White Iridescent Metallic String.  They look wonderful with all the lovely shades of blue in this Ciao Bella Time for Home paper collection.

The inside is sweet and simple with more pretty patterned paper and a little tea/tag pocket.

Winter is the perfect time to stay indoors and play with our paper pretties.  I hope you are staying warm and well during this long, cold month of January!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love You Tons Birthday Card

Hello everyone.  Cheryl here today with this sweet darling card I made for my Grandson's 2nd birthday, using ribbon and supplies from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I love the delicate stitched satin ribbon as it makes perfect bows!

On my card I chose to use the Silver Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from November Ribbon Club Assortment and the ribbon can be found here.  Bonnie carries so many beautiful colors in the Delicate Stitched Satin at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store. Next I did all my layering using some darling Pebbles Design Paper called Special Delivery. The sweet elephants and stamps are from My Makers Movements and they are so cute.  I just had to use them on his card. For the Happy Birthday I chose to use a rub on, I haven't used those in a while so it came out a little wonky....hehehehe.  Next I added some white dots using a gel pen, and then added a little heart button. The layers of my card were put together using the Scotch Advance Tape refill and then the white foam tabs for 3-D effect. I added the top to the base using Scor-Tape. I also did the inside of my card to coordinate with the outside. Love when I think to do that ahead of time, otherwise I normally just add white cardstock to the inside.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies:
 Delicate Stitched Silver Satin Ribbon
Scotch Advance Tape Refill
Foam Tabs

other supplies used:
Love you Tons stamps and coordinating dies from MyMakersMovement
White Gel pen
Heart Button
Pebbles design paper
Rub on (Happy Birthday)
Hot glue (for bow)
Club Scrap Black Ink
Mini Misti for stamping
Hope you enjoyed my post today! Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a lovely day,
Hugs to all

Sending LOVE on Valentine's Day

It's late January, and Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  If you're like me, there are at least a few sweet special people in your life who deserve a Valentine.  Really Reasonable Ribbon has just about EVERYTHING you'll need to help you whip up some extra sweet Valentines for those special people.  I just LOVE their selection of Mulberry Flowers, Double Head Stamens, Leaves, Seam Binding, Adhesives and Embellishments (just to name a few). They carry so many wonderful products.  Everyone could use a little extra LOVE this Valentines Day.
This card uses a piece of black card stock and some sweet Recollections patterned papers from my stash that I attached with strips of Scor-Tape.  I also inked the edges with Ballerina Ink.  Once all my papers were in place, I had lots of FUN adding the sweet touches from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I started with a width of Baby Pink Seam Binding that I ran across the middle of my card.  I used the Baby Pink Seam Binding along with a length of Dusty Rose Wrinkle Ribbon to tie my bow.  I topped the bow with some gorgeous Mulberry Flowers from the Mixed Pinks Magnolia Flowers which were recently restocked.  Underneath the bow, I bundled a long length of Natural Burlap String and added several Black Double Head Stamens, Pink Double Head Stamens, and Milk White Double Head Stamens.
Well, if you know me.....I didn't stop there.  LOL  I just keep piling it on.  I added some more of the Mixed Pinks Magnolia Flowers, and I also attached a couple of the darling little 11mm White Heart Shaped Flatback Imitation Pearl Beads that I filled in the centers with glitter.  And finally, I stamped my sentiment and added two pink wool felt hearts that I topped with a 13mm Flatback Covered Button (black and white gingham).  There are just SO many cute Embellishments and goodies at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and sometimes I just can't stop!
It's always a treat to have you stop by, and it's greatly appreciated.  Please let us know if you have any questions or comments.  There's always loads of great inspiration here on the RRR Blog, and always lots of great shopping waiting for you in the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop.  Thanks for visiting!

Little Valentine Candy Jar

Hi friends, Linsey here today sharing my latest craft project using ribbons from RRR! This easy DIY mason jar-turned-candy jar is a cute and fun way to add some sweetness to your everyday! Place in your home, craft or office space--or share with someone special and see how it sweetens their day!
It's so pretty and sweet, I just 💓 it! I wrapped it around the jar lid and added a bow to either side made with Double-faced Satin Poppy Red and a White Flat Back Pearl in the center of each bow. 
The front is decorated with a fancy paper die cut and stickers a bit of delicate Gabrielle Off-White Crochet Lace. The mason jar is always visually appealing since you can see the sweet treats inside. I had fun decorating my little candy jar and I think it will be a super cute addition to my Valentine decor this year. 
That's all for me today! I hope you enjoyed my project and feel inspired to make something sweet for someone you're sweet on!! Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time, happy crafting!

Winter Butterflies Shaker Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Let's soften winter's blow with a soft pink winter butterflies shaker card that's adored with Dusty Rose Wrinkled Ribbon and Iridescent White Metallic String

I love the soft, shabby bows you can create with Wrinkled Ribbon.  It comes in 2 dozen different shades, but Dusty Rose seemed to be the perfect color match for these Stamperia Shabby Rose papers.  The triple loop bow was easy to tie, thanks to my Zutter Bow it All Tool.

The inside is soft and simple with more patterned pages, a little half circle pocket and a sentiment panel.  

I wish you a warm and cozy weekend with time to play with your paper pretties!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Beary Special Thanks Card

Hello everyone and Happy New Year to you all! Today I have a super darling card I designed using Really Reasonable Ribbon's beautiful flowers, ribbon, and supplies. It's so nice to be now creating in a new year, I'm loving it! 

So for my card today I chose to use the beautiful ribbons from the December Ribbon Club Assortment.  I also used the beautiful lotus flowers in 2-tone baby pink for the main flower. Next I chose to use the pink cherry blossoms, mixed pink miniature sweetheart blossoms, and blue tone rose buds. I love all the flowers Bonnie carries over at the RRR shop!

Design papers I chose are from a paper stack for Christmas called Bundled Up! by Crate Paper, love it! For my darling stamps and dies I chose My Makers Movement stamps and coordinating dies, aren't they darling!? I did color them with Copic markers and the little sweet bear is holding a RRR heart embellishment, so cute!

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:

other supplies used
Christmas bundled up design paper
stamps and dies from My Makers Movement
Copics to color
white gel pen for dots

Sweet Button Cards

Welcome by, everyone!  Today it's me, Karen Letchworth, sharing a sweet card featuring some Button Cards that I topped with several fabulous trims and bobbits from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  If you're not yet familiar with Really Reasonable Ribbon, I suggest you take some time to look around.  Of course they carry the most VAST assortment of Ribbons, Trims, Twines, Laces, and all things lovely and spooled; but they also carry SO much more.  This includes Double Head Stamens, Mulberry Flowers, Adhesives, Embellishments, and the list goes on and on (as you'll see from my projects....LOL).
I started my card with a black cardstock base and added three different random patterned paper pieces from my stash.  The teal color is from Echo Park, the red polka dot is Coordinations, and the print is a Crate Paper scrap tucked in there.  All my paper edges are inked to give them a shabby touch.  I was browsing on Pinterest the other day, and saw some old projects using the adorable Button Boutique Stamps & Dies, so I decided to pull them out and use them.  I used that same set for the two button cards, and then used a set called Thread Cards (stamps & dies) for the thread spools.  Around the thread spool, I wrapped a long length of Solid Red Baker's Twine.  On the button card, I added a black and white gingham button back from the 13mm Mixed Colors Flatback Gingham Covered Buttons as well as some Miniature Mixed Pastel (teal) Sweetheart Blossoms and a Red Sweetheart Blossom.
OK...I realize there's a lot going on here with my card, so I'll do my best to list what I can.  I added an antique milk cap, a die-cut wool felt flower topped with a vintage red button that has some Natural Burlap String tucked in its center.  Under that felt flower, I tucked a length of Black Licorice Baker's Twine and some bundled Natural Burlap String.  I also added a wooden (friend) sentiment, I wrapped some White Crochet Lace around the thread spools, and attached a little wooden ruler.  I also tucked in a Pear Shaped Safety Pin - such an adorable touch.

And then......because they're just SO cute, and because I love them SO much, and because Really Reasonable Ribbon has SO many great products to help me adorn them; I stamped several more of these darling Button Cards.  Some of the RRR products I used to embellish these various cards include Solid Mint Baker's Twine, Cotton Candy Baker's Twine, several different styles of Natural Crochet Lace, several different colors of Double Head Stamens (yellow, pink, blue, etc.), various Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms, Pastel Magnolia Flowers, Plaid Yellow Ribbon, Covered Flatback Gingham Buttons, Light Blue Burlap String, a length of Danish Blue Seam Binding, Bright Pink Plaid Ribbon, a Parma Grey Open Rose, a White Mulberry Leaf, one Pink Bead Berry Spray Cluster, some washi tape, stick pins, two little  (blue flower) Embellishments and of course, LOTS of buttons.  Like I said, no shortage of fabulous products at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and always the perfect item for YOUR next project!
Please stop by again soon.  There's always LOTS of fabulous inspiration here on the RRR Blog, and we always appreciate your visits.
