Easter Blessings Card by Cherry Nelson

 Hey there, Cherry  here on the RRR blog!  Today I'm sharing a card for Easter...using the
gorgeous 5/8" Blue Topaz Taffeta Ribbon.

I've been having fun making different bows than the normal.....this one I looped a bunch of times and tied wire so the loops would hang down only.  I added lots of special handmade florals and goodies.

I also added blue carnations.

Thanks for coming by today on the RRR blog.  
xoxo, Cherry

A Tea Party Under the Lilacs

Lush Lilac Tea Party Card by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon

 Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Would you like to join me for a little tea party underneath the lilacs?  Today I have one of my signature Tea Party in a Box cards to share with you.  Springtime and Lilacs and Tea are all tied together with lovely Light Orchid Taffeta Ribbon from the March Ribbon Club Assortment

Lush Lilacs Tea Party in a Box Card by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon

This box style slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 4 1/4" with a 3/4" top fold spine.  I've attached the Light Orchid Taffeta Ribbon with Scor-Tape on 3 sides of the card.  The Lilac blooms are  handmade and sprinkled with fine glitter to add just a touch of extra sparkle and shine.

The inside of the card has a lovely box pocket to hold all the little goodies you need at a Tea Party for One.  I've dressed up some of the packages with Spring Pastel Leaf Print Satin Ribbon, which is also part of the March Ribbon Club. 

It won't be too long before the lilacs bloom.  But in the meantime, I'll have to be satisfied by playing with pretty spring ribbons and papers.  Life is pretty sweet, isn't it?

Thanks for stopping by!

Easter Cuties Cookie Cutters

Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to you all! Today I'm sharing these darling cookie cutters I decorated for Really Reasonable ribbon using the beautiful ribbons, flowers, stamens, and bead sprays. Love how fun & easy these were to decorate. 
I bought a set of 4 of these.  They came with two small ones, and then two larger matching ones.  These I have on a 2 tiered tray in my kitchen and thought how cute they would look decorated. So on the chick I used the Pink Gingham Ribbon, Miniature Gardenias, and the Blue Stamens. For the bunny I chose to use the Delicate Stitched Ribbon, and then the Bead Berry Spray. 
Thank you for looking and have a lovely day! Hugs to all, Cheryl

Warm Wishes Wrapped In Lace

 Hurray!  It's your ribbon-loving friend, Karen Letchworth here today sharing a super sweet little project I created using a few of the (many) wonderful products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This little thread-shaped tag/card will go on top of a gift.  I always know that, no matter what the project, Really Reasonable Ribbon will always have the perfect trims and adornments I need.
I started with a cardboard die cut thread spool shape, and I used a milky white acrylic paint for the base.  I inked the edges with some Burlap and Green Cut Grass Tim Holtz Oxide Inks.  I used some Spun Sugar Tim Holtz Oxide Ink to stencil some circles onto the background, and I dotted a few pops of color using pink and mint acrylic paints.  I did the same inking and stenciling on the miniature tag.  The spool image I stamped is Vintage Thread 2 from Inspired By Stamping.  
I wrapped a length of lovely Ivory Crochet Lace around the spool card.  There are many beautiful varieties of Crochet Lace in the RRR store in both ivory and white.  I used a Miniature Rusty Pear-Shaped Safety Pin from the Embellishments section to hang my tiny tag.  Just look at how SWEET that is.  Really Reasonable Ribbon has such GORGEOUS products.
Finally, I added a few Miniature Double Head Stamens, some bundled Ivory Burlap String, and from our extensive Mulberry Flower category.....a White Sweetheart Blossom and two Pink Apple Blossoms.  I also used some Scor-Tape from the Adhesives section to secure the wrapped Ivory Crochet Lace.  We're so grateful that you stopped by today, and hope that you'll visit often for lots of great inspiration and so much more.

Hello All Occasion Greeting Card

 Hello friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here with a spring inspired all occasion greeting card.

The color palate of this card is making me think of warmer days ahead. When everything bursts back in to bloom. 

I've been working a lot with my stash ribbons and I was so happy to rediscover this gorgeous chevron striped twill  in the most perfectest celery color. 

Here I have a combination of ready made and made by me flowers. Of course I'm using the beautiful stamens from RRR to finish of the focal flowers and filled in the arrangement with white lotus flowers for a generous display.

Easter Envelope Card by Cherry Nelson

Hello my lovely RRR peeps!  Cherry here today! Now that Valentine's Day 2021 has come and gone (whatttt?) I feel it only necessary to start Easter 2021. This year I am craving these soft pastels.  More than any other year.  When I was done with this particular card I was smiling, and that has been sorely lacking.  I used some old embossing folders to emboss my cardstock and also some chipboard. Then I got really wild and broke out my envelope punch board and made this envelope.  I had fun adding things to the inside and lining it in this cute polka dot paper.

I added some diecuts, handmade florals, berries, buttons, lace, and ribbons.  I wanted to soften things up so I edged all my papers with some chalkboard marker. 

It's all in the details so I added some Nuvo drops to my wood heart in pink...added some texture with some jute string and called this card done!  Make sure to scroll down for a supply list.

 I hope you enjoyed your visit today to the RRR blog!  As always stay healthy and creative. 
XOXO, Cherry

Easter Chicks Shaker Card

Easter Chicks Shaker Card by Kathy Clement Photo 01

 Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Have you had a chance to play with the gorgeous March Ribbon Club Assortment yet?  Oooh la la!  These ribbons just burst with the promise of springtime!  I've used them to create this cute Easter Chicks Shaker Card.

Delicate Stitched Satin is one of my all time favorites.  It is so easy to tie a perfect bow with this soft and supple ribbon! Hot Pink Delicate Stitched Satin Bows add a lovely pop of color to this pastel card.  They also help to draw the eye to my little Mason Jar Shaker  embellishment.  Topped with Iridescent Metallic String and pretty pink flowers, it's a bow cluster worthy of the Easter Bunny.

Authentique Springtime Shaker Card by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon

You can add extra color, pattern and texture to any card by creating a ribbon border.  This is one of my favorite sneaky tricks!  Simply attach Lemon Diamond Satin Ribbon to the card panel with 1/2" Scor-Tape.  Let the ends hang over the sides of the panel so you can wrap the ribbon around to the back.  This leaves a neat and tidy edge.  Then repeat this process with the Multi Print Butterfly Ribbon , but this time use 1/4" Scor-Tape.  

I love the changing of the seasons.  It's so lovely to transition from winter colors and patterns to the light and cheery colors of spring.  Maybe we can encourage the flowers to bloom as we play with our pretty springtime Ribbon Club Assortment!  

Wishing you joy and creativity!

Easter Bunny Treat Bags

 Hello everyone and Happy Monday to you all! Cheryl here today with these darling Bunny Treat bags I designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful satin ribbons from the RRR Shop. These are so much fun to make, and if you are looking for a super fun and easy project, this is it!

So I pulled these bags from my stash, as I bought them several years back from American Crafts. I have always loved making these for little fun gifts to give with candy inside. These were done up using these darling bunny dies, that I colored with Copics, and added little white dots. I was gonna add some glitter to the bows on the bunny, but then decided not to at the last minute.  The ribbon bows were made using the gorgeous Ribbons from RRR and I will list them below.

I did use some other dies from my collection as well. I also used old buttons, and some half backed pearls. The white border is a Martha Stewart punch.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a lovely week.

Best Wishes

Welcome by today, everyone, and thanks for visiting us again.  It's always a treat to have you stop by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to see what's happening.  Today it's your friend, Karen Letchworth, here sharing a sweet card that showcases several great products from from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I can always find the perfect products for every project at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and there LOTS of great inspiration here on the blog each day as well.
For this card, I used a dusty pale pink cardstock base and I inked the edges.  I attached some scraps of patterned paper here and there using Scor-Tape to piece together my background. On the left-hand side of the card, you'll see that I laid a length of Baby Pink Seam Binding and machine stitched over it.  Can you see the beautiful shine it gives?   All the Seam Binding is shiny and beautiful like that, and you will LOVE it as much as I do.
Next, I added several Miniature Double Head Stamens, and a bow tied with Olive Wrinkle RibbonBaby Pink Seam Binding and some bundled Ivory Burlap String topped with a Pink Magnolia Blossom.  The stamped sentiment is from Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.  I also added a White Acrylic Pearl Heart from our Embellishments Section.  I filled it with pink prills.
There's always something beautiful waiting for you at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I never have any trouble finding the perfect ribbons, trims, twines, flowers, and more.  You'll LOVE it all.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and please visit again soon.  We always appreciate your visits.

Little Bird Tag Greeting Card

 Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a sweet spring inspired all occasion greeting card.

This lovely tag has my heart. I just adore birds! I've popped the tag up on spacers on a layering of pretty patterned paper and a "frame" created with an embroidery hoop die cut from woodgrain paper.

The color palate really compliments the nature inspired patterned papers. I am a sucker for swiss dots as a background as their small scale allows you to really  appreciate what the pattern is all about even when buried under layers.
The crisp white die cut doily gives a neutral landing spot for the detailed sticker to be a real focal point.

Of course I can't help myself but to add loads of flowers and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I had to customize the center flower to better coordinate with my card. By removing the darker blue layer from the back and the yellow stamen I created the perfect base to top off with one of the blue cherry blossoms, with the yellow removed of course the finished the whole thig off with matching stamens.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G
