Choose Joy Card with Handmade Flowers by Cherry Nelson

Hello Ribbon peeps!  Cherry here today to share a card and a new obsession.  Handmade paper and Foamirian flowers.   I have been having a ball creating them.  It is amazing what variations you can come up with just by using different stamens, layers, diecuts, and coloring techniques.  Each flower is always different.  I enjoy mixing them with my Wild Orchid Craft flowers from the store too.  I think they turned out so pretty.  Check out RRR for stamens and berries to use in your flower creating. Scroll down for Really Reasonable Ribbon supplies used.  Happy crafting friends!

XOXO, Cherry

Beach Dreams with the July Ribbon Club Assortment

Hello, Friends!  I've been dreaming of the beach:  toes scrunched into warm sand, seagulls coasting on the air currents, beachy breezes blowing through my hair...oh, yes, please!  Since the beach is not a possibility for me right now, I did the next best thing: I dug out my Seashore July Ribbon Club Assortment and created a dreamy beach window card.

Capri Blue Double Faced Satin and Blue Variegated Shell Print Satin play perfectly with the blues in this paper collection.  It feels like a calm day at sea, and that makes my heart happy!

 TIP: Attach ribbon to the top of a pocket with Scor-tape to add texture and shimmer to your design.

Tuck an Ivory Burlap String Bow in with your Capri Blue Satin Bow.  This not only adds texture, it helps draw the eye to the floral cluster. 

Here's a peek at the inside.  A twisted easel card is designed mostly for display.  But I did manage to create a little pocket inside.  See how pretty that Blue Variegated Shell Print Satin is on the pocket?

Even tiny bits of ribbon can be used to add designer touches to a card.  Looping a bit of ribbon through the top of this metal key really makes it pop.  

I hope we all get to dig our toes into the sand soon!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks A Latte!

 Hello everyone and Happy Monday to you all! Today I'm sharing this sweet card I designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon and My Makers Movement. I had a latte fun creating this card, and hope you enjoy my post for today!

For my card today I chose design papers from my stash that I've had for a long time. Next I layered them and added my sewing using the sewing machine. I love dots , so I added tons of those to each layer, using my white Gel Pen. Next I cut out my Latte cup using coordinating design paper, and stamped the sentiment that came with this set, isn't it too cute?! 

All the Gorgeous flowers are from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I will list them all below for easy finding. I chose to use the beautiful Chrysanthemum, cherry blossoms, and rose buds to make up the flower cluster on my card. The Beautiful ribbons I chose are the Delicate Stitched(LOVE) , and the Satin Shell Print Ribbon. I really enjoyed creating this card, and hope you like it too!

Having Fun With Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello crafty peeps, and welcome by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today as I (Karen) share a some fun projects with you.  There are SO many fabulous ribbons, trims, twines and goodies at Really Reasonable Ribbon that you're always sure to find just the right touches for every project.  Today I'm sharing five quick projects that each use some of my favorite trims.
While I was on vacation recently, I purchased a few new things at a fun scrapbook store including some die-cuts from My Favorite Things for making Chapstick/lip balm holders like the one above.  I love the Cherry Baker's Twine at the top of the holder.  Baker's Twine is a wonderful touch for so many projects.  And, at just $1 for 10 yards, you're going to want to pick up all 37 gorgeous colors carried at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
My second project is the HELLO card shown above.  It uses a kraft paper base, some woodgrain patterned paper, die-cut foliage and a stamped sentiment.  The finishing touch to this quick but sweet little card is some Natural Burlap String that's strung through a little brown button and tied into a bow.
None of the projects/cards I'm sharing today are terribly complicated, and none of them have a whole lot of Really Reasonable Ribbon product on them.  I guess my point was just to show everyone how a small accent, such as the Natural Burlap String or some Baker's Twine can add texture and personality to your art work.  By the way, Really Reasonable Ribbon also carries several fabulous Adhesives to help you securely attached your papers, ribbons, etc. onto your projects.
It's pretty much the same concept with this card (above) where I really wanted the focus to remain on the stamped sentiment and the pretty stamped leaves.  The Natural Burlap String used on this card really pulls in the color from the kraft base.  It's a simple addition, but again adds just a lovely completed touch.
The last card I'm sharing today again uses a kraft cardstock base and then a layer of white cardstock that's pressure embossed using an embossing folder.  There are a few gem stickers, but just to give the card that extra touch of love, a piece of Green Micro Gingham Ribbon was attached.  There really is a perfect trim for every project at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and we hope you will stop by often.  You'll always find loads of inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, and there's never a shortage of beautiful ribbons, trims, twines, Embellishments, Adhesives, Mulberry Flowers, and more waiting for you in the Really Reasonable Ribbon store.  Please visit again soon.

Holly Jolly Slim Line Folio

Hello friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a project I created with  gorgeous trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon...
The story behind this project is that I truly intended to create a slim line card. Like I do. All the time. But this time something happened...I think it may have been aliens.....taking over my brain ....and once I had all the paper patterns pulled out it transformed into a folio. 
I created the bows for this folio with my new fav ribbon. Two bows is always better than one right? 

I finished off these made by me poinsettias with pretty double headed stamens and created a generous arrangement with die cut foliage, loopy twine bows and skeleton leaves cut from silvery mirror cardstock

 Inside has tags, folded inserts, and tip ins for plenty of room to add pictures and journaling.

~Really Reasonable Ribbon~ Slate Blue Wrinkle Ribbon, Ivory Burlap String, Flower Stamens.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Shaker Cards Duo by Cherry Nelson

 Hellllllllllllllllo my paper peeps!  Cherry here today to share a couple of shaker cards made with Really Reasonable Ribbon trims, flowers, and stamens.  Bonnie has such a great selection of all those goodies. I have been into pinks and peaches lately.  It is fun to try different color combos, isn't it?  I created these shakers using old Sizzix die frames and then just added some recycled acetate to cover the fronts.  The more foam adhesive you have on back, the deeper your shaker card will be. It creates a reverse shadow box effect and if you know me....I love lots of dimension. That allows the sequins to really be able to move around...which is half the fun.  I am developing quite the collection of different things to add to shaker cards.  Well that is it for me today friends.  Please scroll down for list of RRR supplies.  Stay healthy and safe my friends
                                                               XOXO, Cherry

The Dog Days of Summer

Hello, Friends!  The Dog Days of Summer are upon us, and my mind is turning toward the beach!  Let's grab our beach umbrellas and suntan lotion and dip our toes in the surf today!  What do you say?  This 6x6 easel style folio reminds me of taking our kids to the beach when they were small.  We had such fun family times there! 

Coral and Aqua are a classic summer color palette.  And Coral Rose Checkerboard Satin Ribbon ties the most beautiful bows!  Double bow clusters in both corners of the card mean double the fun! Decorate the little tags with a bit of Moonstone Swiss Dots Grosgrain Ribbon

The interior of the folio has lots and lots of room for photos, journaling and writing down important dates.  There's even a hidden pocket with a pull out folio for larger photos.

If you'd like to learn how to make this sweet little folio, please enjoy this video tutorial.

I hope you get to wiggle your toes in the sand soon!

At the end of the hop, comment on this post answering the question below for a chance to win our July Ribbon Club assortment shown below.
Prize is offered to customers with US shipping addresses only.

Our question of the month is:
What crafty projects are you currently working on?

For me, the answer is none!  I got way behind with RRR work because of COVID and am still trying to catch up.  Also, I still have not set up my crafting area in my new home and that is going to be my next priority after I catch up.  I have some counters and work areas to build and then I need to upack and set up.  I'm a neat and organized crafter and it makes me crazy trying to work when I can't find anything, so it becomes a chore I dread rather than the fun activity I crave.  

Our winner will be selected from the numbered comments on this post on Friday, July 17th. Be sure to check back on Friday evening to see if you are our lucky winner.

Thanks so much for hopping with us today. We hope you'll stop by and so some shopping at Really Reasonable Ribbon soon.

Not Mush to Say, But I Love You!

 Hello Crafty Friends, and Happy Friday to you all! Hope you all are doing well and staying safe! Like myself, I hope you are able to get some crafting done. So for today I have this darling card I designed for  Really Reasonable Ribbon & My Makers Movement, using using all ribbons and flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I love that there are so many gorgeous flowers that they have to choose from.
 So for my card today I went with some old design papers I have in my stash, as lately I've been trying to pull from all those single sheets I  have hoarded over the years, and this mushroom design paper I thought would be perfect for the set "Not Mush to say" from Makers Movement. Love it!
I layered five layers using the design paper, and then stamped up my stamps and colored them with Copic markers. Next I cut out the little mushroom using the coordinating dies that are in this set. Love how cute he is. I also stamped the little stamp on the inside of my card as you can see below. I thought Really Reasonable Ribbon flowers would be a perfect addition to my card, so I added several different ones layered on the ribbons. I will list and link everything below for easy finding.
 I added a photo of the inside, as I've been trying to be sure to do all the insides of my cards.

Supplies Used:
Not Mush to say Stamp and Dies from My Makers Movement
Really Reasonable Ribbons flowers: Cottage Roses Mixed Blue tones, Cherry Blossoms Mixed Reds, Mixed Pink Open Roses 15mm, Mixed Blue tones Rose Buds, Aster Daisy Deep Ivory.
Really Reasonable Ribbons used are Checkered Satin in Mineral Ice , Plaid Ribbon Red.
Design papers are from my stash by Imaginisce twitterpated mushroom fancy design paper. The checkered paper im not sure who it is from as it was scraps.
Copics to color
Hot glue gun for flowers and ribbons,
RRR Scotch advanced refill tape , RRR foam tabs
Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,
