Buzzing Bees, Blooming Flowers and Beautiful Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Here's a honey of a card to get your weekend started right!  I was first introduced to 5/8" Tan Satin Ribbon with  Grograin Edge in the May Ribbon Club Assortment.  Mark me down as a fan!  This great neutral shade seems to pick up on whatever colors you use it with, and it ties gorgeous bows!   I love the way it took on a honey tone in this bee themed card.

It also looks amazing when paired up with Natural Burlap String, another of my "go to" textiles. 

I've used my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool to create some tiny burlap bows beneath these cute wooden buttons, too.

Inside the card, I've create a couple of pockets and filled them with all sorts of goodies.

Pink Baker's Twine makes a great tag topper and picks up on the pink shades in the floral designer papers. 

I also stitched up a little bookmark to tuck into the card.  This is topped with Topaz and Light Silver Diamond Grosgrain Ribbon,  I've attached a pretty key with Metallic Iridescent String, too. 

Do you ever use ribbon on the insides of your cards?  I think it adds a lovely surprise. 

I hope I've shared some tips and ideas that you can use in your next crafty adventure.  Thanks for stopping by!

I did up 3 layers and added my sewing using the sewing machine. Next I cut out one of the doilys from My Makers Movement, and then used the darling Lemonade Stand & Stamps also from Makers Movement. it was colored with copics, added stickles to the top, and then added some branches . Love how it all works together.

Next I hot glued them to the Bows I had created using the Beautiful Bold Satin /W Grosgrain Edge Pearl Pink another Favorite of mine, and then the Satin Swiss Dots Lemon Ribbon. Both were done into bows and hot glued to my card.

Having FUN With Really Reasonable Ribbon

Welcome by, everyone.  I hope you're having a great week, staying safe and healthy, enjoying family, and of course...and finding time to create lovely things.  The card I'm sharing with you today was created using several of my favorite products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I just love making things with their lovely products, and I'm always able to find the perfect match for everything I'm making.  Really Reasonable Ribbon really has it ALL.
I started with a white cardstock base and added two patterned papers which are both from Crate Paper.  The piece at the bottom was a scrap of painted paper I had on my craft table.  I just sorta pieced things together to create my base.  The stamped sentiment is from Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.
The bow began with some Bay Leaf Seam Binding, and some bundled and knotted Solid Soft Pink Baker's Twine.  I tucked in several beautiful Double Head Stamens, and topped the bow with a Pale Green Open Rose, a Pale Pink Open Rose and a White Open Rose.  I sprinkled just a bit of glitter on the flowers.  And finally, I hung a metal heart from the bow using a Pear-Shaped Safety Pin.  I assure you that Really Reasonable Ribbon has all the trims and touches you're looking for, and that you will love everything you find there.  Thanks SO much for stopping by today.

Creating a Patriotic Greeting with Not One, But TWO Shakers by Cherry Nelson

Hello my paper peeps!  Cherry here today to share a  Patriotic greeting .  I reallllly do NOT think I will ever tire of making shaker cards.  So adding two shakers instead of one to a card was just a natural inclination.  I die cut some postage stamps from chipboard and embossed them.  Next up was adhering some recycled  acetate along with foam strips. I then went to town filling these little cuties with sequins and die cut  mini stars.  

I used some paper scraps that were not quite big enough so I cut strips of navy cardstock and used them to border each pattern paper.  I thought it was kinda of a cool idea too because it reminds me of the stripes on our beloved flag.  In keeping with the patriotic air mail theme, I used Taffeta ribbon in red, white, and blue.  This is my favorite ribbon for bows.  Soft enough to loop but stiff enough to keep its shape.  

I embellished the rest of the card using lots of fun mail themed goodies.  A mini envelope, die cut stars, flourishes, die cuts, and a handmade Foamirian flower and leaves that I have become obsessed lately with making.  I used stamens from the RRR website for my centers. 

Well that is it for me!  Hope you enjoyed. 

XOXO, Cherry

Par-tee Golf Card Folio with June Ribbons

Hello, Friends!  Since it is almost Father's Day, I thought I'd share a fun idea for a masculine card with you today.  I know many of us struggle when it comes to using ribbon on a masculine card.  But this Apple Green Satin from the June Ribbon Club is the perfect partner for this Golf Themed Card Folio.

Ivory Burlap String adds a little extra texture to the bow.  When I use ribbon on a masculine card, I like to keep it really simple.  Just wrap a length of ribbon around the left hand side of the card panel and tie a square knot.  Top it with the ivory bow and some themed embellishments.  The ribbon adds texture, shine and a pop of color.

Here's a peek at the first fold of this fancy-fold card.  It's like the ribbon does double duty!

I love the way that you can still see the ribbon on the inside of the card, too.  You can use this technique on simple side fold cards and on top fold cards, too.  It's a very easy way to add a designer touch to your project.

I hope I've shared some helpful tips and tricks for using ribbon on masculine cards.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Pretty Princess Card by Cheryl Walker

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to you all! Today I have a super fun card I made using Really Reasonable Ribbon flowers, and embellishments. Hope you enjoy!

On my card I chose to use the darling paper collection called Little Princess. I knew when I received the beautiful flowers and ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon that it would match perfectly with this paper collection. I chose to use the mixed purple /lilac carnations and rose buds. Next I used the mixed pink open roses in 15mm, and the big flower is a chrysanthemum. Lately I've been using a lot of the flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon, as it's easier for me to get a card done quickly, instead of making all my flowers. The darling design paper was so fun to work with and is an older collection that I've had for a long time. I love to layer and chose some dies that were from Cheery Lynn Designs, except the carriage as it's a Cottage Cutz die. I also added some sewing to complete my card for today.

The die cuts are from My Makers Movement, and the Princess Carriage is a Cottage Cutz die that I colored using Copics.

Ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbon Delicate Stitched Satin.

The card was put together using the Scotch Tape refill and foam squares. I also used hot glue on the flowers and flower embellishments.
Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:
Mixed Purple Chrysanthemums 
Mixed Purple Rose Buds
Mixed Purple Carnations
Mixed Pink Open Roses 15mm
flower embellishments
Foam Squares
Scotch Tape Refill
Delicate Stitched Satin

Other supplies I used :
Cheery Lynn dies
Cottage Cutz dies
American Crafts design paper and card stock.
hot glue
Crafters Edge Crossover Machine(My Makers Movement)
Thank you so much for stopping by and looking! Hope you have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,
