Shaker Card with Gift Card holder

Hello everyone, today I have a super fun card I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon and for Makers Movement using Really Reasonable Ribbons beautiful ribbons/supplies and My Makers Movement super cute dies and stamps. I love the colors for this card and will list the supplies used below.

On my card i started with using the darling design paper from Pebbles Yours Truly paper stack. Love the colors in this line as they are absolutely darling and match with the RRR ribbon perfectly! I love layers and you can tell on this one, as there are plenty of layers here. I even did the inside as Ive been trying to make sure they are all complete for gift giving. I used the beautiful Satin Checks and Delicate Stitched ribbons on this card for a double bow. Next I chose to layer all My makers Movement dies, and Love that I used the file for a gift card holder, which you will see in my next photo. I thought how perfect would it be to not only give a card but have it hold a sweet gift card on the front as well. This one was made for someone special, now all i have to do is mail it out.

Really Reasonable Ribbon carries some super cute embellishments, and these hearts I used are one of my many favorite.   Next I chose to add sewing to most of my layers, the only thing I couldnt sew was the shaker and the heart as there is foam in between them both. Also the mini file is not sewn. I did add some white gel dots to each layer for some fun.

Really Reasonable Ribbon supplies:

My Makers Movement
Mini file folder
petite sentiments
all others:
white gel pen
stampinup ink
club scrap black ink
pebbles design paper
Paper temptress red
american crafts card stock
Hot glue

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a lovely day!
hugs to all,

Beloved Pet Bereavement Card

Hello, Friends!  Sometimes, life is sad.  And when someone loves a beloved pet, it's nice to let them know that you care.  This Pet Bereavement Card is the perfect way to do that.  I've adorned it with a gorgeous Blue, Ivory and Gold Plaid Ribbon from the February Ribbon Club Assortment.  It's the perfect pairing for this Authentique Purebred collection.

This poufy triple loop bow was easy to tie, thanks to my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool.  Once I'd tied the bow, I simply added a bit of hot glue beneath my flower clusters.  Then I used the tips of my scissors to push the knot into the hot adhesive.  You will need to hold it in place for a second or two.  Then you can just "fluff the bow" by inserting your fingers inside the loop and poufing them out again. 

Painted wood embellishments and gentle distressing lend a wonderful vintage vibe to this card design.

Here's a peek at the inside. 

I hope you never have to use this card idea, but if you will mean so much to the recipient!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank You Card with Ribbon and Flowers

Hello everyone.  Today I have a card I made for a co-worker using beautiful flowers, ribbons, and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I had so much fun making this card and she LOVED it! I'm loving the NEW Bold Satin with Grosgrain Edge Ribbon that Bonnie carries. I will post a link to videos on my bow making here.
So for my card base I used the My Makers Movement Thanks die for the top of my card. Love using these fun dies to create a fun card for giving. Next I used the flowers from RRR, they are under cabochons flower rhinestones.  They were hot glued on the Thanks. I love adding lots of layers to my cards, and this one I'm very pleased with. I did a flower cluster in the upper left corner using two different ribbons and lots of beautiful flowers. I also used the green leaves and some die cut floral swirls.  The sentiment is from Just Right Papercraft.
Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies used:
Lotus 2-tone baby pink
Carnations Mixed Blues
Rose Buds Mixed Blue
10mm open roses Mixed Pink
sweetheart blossoms Yellow
Green Leaves
Embellishment flowers
Bold satin with grosgrain edge Pearl Pink

Be Still And Know

Welcome back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today, everyone!  It's Karen here sharing a card that uses a few of the FAB products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I just can't get enough of Really Reasonable Ribbon's amazing assortment of Ribbons, Mulberry Flowers, Adhesives, Twines, Embellishments, and SO much more.  They really have it all.
This card started with a dark brown Bazzill cardstock base and a second piece of lighter brown Bazzill cardstock.  On the lighter colored cardstock, I stenciled a decorative design using a stencil and some mint acrylic paint.  I also stamped some dots in dark brown at the bottom of the card.  The sentiment is also stamped, and is surrounded by lots of tiny green floral prills to outline the inside of the frame and accent the sentiment.  The brown wooden frame is also touched with the mint acrylic paint, and was secured using Scor-Tape.
At the bottom of my card, I added some wooden floral pieces that I painted with mint acrylic paint.  I topped those with some die-cut green foliage, some bundled Ivory Burlap String and Brown Burlap String, and a GORGEOUS White Lotus Flower with extra prills in the center.  At the top right of my card, you'll see a Green Magnolia Flower from the Mixed Pastels, a Mulberry Leaf, and a Deep Ivory Open Rose.  As you can see, Really Reasonable Ribbon has lots of great things to help you create something wonderful.  Why not stop by today and treat yourself?  You won't regret it.

Raised Panel Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here with a card I've been wanting to try to make for quite some time. I thought it would be complicated and involve math and measuring but instead I only had to find just the right die!

I created the center portion with individual raised panels instead of my usual large vintage image focal point.
A little sewing, distressing, and netting add a great deal of texture and detail.
Of course I'm adding perfectly coordinating trims from RRR!
Flowers, sequins, and metal charms are the finishing touch.

Please enjoy this video of how I created the card....

The Best Ship is Friendship

Hello, Friends!  Have you had a chance to play with the scrumptious ribbons in the February Ribbon Club yet?  I am so loving this Blue and Brown Ribbon Mix because it's great for masculine and feminine cards alike.  Today's card features 3 ribbons from the club assortment: Light Navy Taffeta, Tan Delicate Stitched Satin, and Blue and Brown Chevron Stripe Grosgrain.  They work so well with this Voyager Collection from Authentique paper!

I've used one of my favorite quick ribbon tricks to create a textured border on the left hand side of the card.  To do this, simply lay down a line of 1/2" Scor-Tape on your card layer before you adhere it to the base.  Cut the tape and the ribbon about 1" longer than the area you are trying to cover.  Burnish the ribbon onto the Scor-Tape, then wrap the ends around the back side of the card to create a really neat and tidy ribbon border.  I did the same thing with the chevron stripe ribbon, but used 1/4" Scor-Tape instead.  A loopy Gold Metallic String bow adds a touch of elegance to the bow cluster. 

Here's a peek at the inside.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I Love You Valentine

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to you all! Today's card was designed for Really Reasonable  Ribbon and My Makers Movement. I really had a lot of fun making this darling shaker Valentine card, I love making these!

On my card for today I chose to use the beautiful new ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon its absolutely gorgeous in person and I LOVE the way it makes up bows, and of course its my favorite color PINK..

I found this stack of paper in my stash and just had to use it for my card today. Love Letters by first edition paper. It works perfectly with the new My Makers Movement Nest Scallope Heart dies, love these darling little hearts, and the fun Hugs & Kisses Shaker sprinkles. So cute! The Ribbon works perfectly with the colors I've chosen. Loving this ribbon from RRR!  Each layer was put together using the scotch advanced tape refill along with foam squares to give it some 3-D layering . I did add some sewing and then white gel dots.

Flowers were done using Makers Movement Petite Posies Die set and doing my glass flower technique on them. I have several videos on my blog here, and this one was just using the design paper and card stock, so super easy.

I also did the inside of the card using the same design paper and card stock.

Kiss The Cook/Recipe Card Folder

Hello there, and thanks for visiting today, everyone.  Karen Letchworth here posting a fun Recipe Card Folder that's sure to warm your heart.  I used lots of great products from Really Reasonable Ribbon to create this for a friend who loves to cook/bake; and who loves old "kitchy" things like I do.  So, with that theme in mind, I decided to send her a card that not says hello and lets her know I'm thinking about her, but also incorporates a couple of recipes and even gives me the opportunity to tuck in a few vintage kitchy items for her.
I started with a basic card, and used cardstocks and patterned papers to make my base.  I ran some red print gaffer tape along the binding of the card to give it some girth (you may catch a glimpse of it in photos).  The front of the card incorporates the cardstocks, patterned papers and ephemera which I layered together securely with strips of Scor-Tape.  This is a fabulous Adhesive that comes in several widths to help you create cards and projects that will stay together over time.  The front of my card also has a journaling card from this Bo Bunny (Kiss The Cook) line I used.  I added a length of Cherry Baker's Twine to the printed apron, and I tied it around her apron giving it extra length to hang down.  Baker's Twine is SUPER inexpensive at just 10cents/yard and comes in OODLES of fun colors.  The sentiment on the front of the card is a chipboard piece from this same Bo Bunny line.  I also added a floral cluster/bow to the front of the card which includes a length of Red Burlap String and Cherry Baker's Twine, and is topped with a Yellow Magnolia Flower and two Pastel Green Open Roses, some Red, Blue and Black Double Head Stamens and a Mulberry Leaf.  I also sprinkled some prills on the paper surrounding the floral cluster.  There's also a 16mm Heart Shaped Immitation Pearl Buckle Slide on the front of my card that has red and yellow prills and glitter in its center.
On the inside left of the card, I added a small white lunch bag that I folded over to create a pocket.  I covered the smaller (low) portion of the bag with patterned papers, and used Scor-Tape once again to secure the outer edges of the pocket; leaving me with the small extra pocket in front where I tucked in a cute ephemera chocolate chip cookie with cooking tips written on it, an antique/vintage wooden spoon with the wrapper still on, a ticket, and a tea bag.  Then, in the top pocket of the bag, I tucked in a couple recipe cards with yummy recipes on them for my friend to enjoy.  I decorated the pocket bag with a width of Red Gingham Ribbon, Yellow Burlap String, Red Double-Head Stamens, Black Gingham Ribbon tied with Solid Black Baker's Twine, and some Mixed Blue Sweetheart Blossoms.  You can see some of the peeking through when you look at the front of the card.
On the inside right of the card, I added a piece of ivory cardstock inked with red edges.  This is where I will write my personal note to my friend before sending it off.  I tried really hard not to add too much, but to still give my card some special touches.  Really Reasonable Ribbon always has the perfect items to help me adorn my cards and projects.  Things like Mulberry Flowers, Stamens, Burlap String, Baker's Twine, Adhesives, and SO much more can be found at RRR.  There's also lots of inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, and let's not forget about our FUN monthly Blog Hop which is just around the corner.  We hope you'll join us in  six days (13th of every month) for our Blog Hop where one lucky person will win our FABULOUS Ribbon Club Assortment.  Like I said, there's always lots of inspiration and fun at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Thanks again for stopping by!
Please stop by again soon.  Your visits are always welcomed and appreciated,, and we're happy to answer any questions you might have.  Have a blessed and creative week, everyone.  See you again on the 13th for our Blog Hop.  Until then.....

Valentine Cutie

Hello everyone, and Happy Saturday to you all! Today I wanted to share a card I made using some of the beautiful flowers and ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon! I'm loving all the flowers, and have been using them a lot on my cards lately.

So for my card today I chose to use the die cut to create my card base to have the darling hearts on top. Love using these card toppers. I layered using a few different Valentine patterns and then added sewing. All layers were put together using the Scotch Advanced Tape Refill, and Scor-Tape as well.  For the layering and giving it a 3-D look, I chose to use some of the foam squares. This cute little kitty unicorn die is a CC die, and then I did a cluster of flowers below her. I chose the beautiful Magnolia flower and then the red Cherry Blossoms, and mint Rose Buds. I did cut out some branches to use, and also layered all of this on a Gingham Red Ribbon.
