Let Freedom Ring

Hello, again Ribbon Friends! I am still making great use of the May Ribbon Club (Patriotic Assortment)I just cannot stop making patriotic projects! I do have loads of other ribbon, but it has been two years since I made anything for 4th of July, so this ribbon club went to my head!

I created a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card out of red cardstock. I don't normally make cards in this orientation, but I really wanted to use the USA die cut that I found hiding in my stash!

I die cut the states outline (except for Alaska and Hawaii) from blue cardstock and very, very carefully glued it to the white panel. That thing was fragile! 
I then die cut just a few states out of some scraps of collage paper and inserted them into their spots on the map. I only used the states where my husband and I have lived since our marriage. I die cut a blue frame to place around the USA die cut to keep it from "floating" on the page. 

Next comes the ribbon! 
I made a loopy bow out of the 3/8" Random Stars Patriotic Satin ribbon and glued it to the corner of the card. I then made another loopy bow from the Air Mail Baker's Twine. I glued the twine to the top of the ribbon. Then I needed to hide a bit of a hot glue I added a White Pearl Star to the top.
The other corner needed something, too so I added a digital sentiment, die cut into a banner shape to the upper right corner. I topped the banner with more Air Mail Baker's Twine and another White Pearl Star.

I use the Bow-it-All tool to make all my bows! So fast and easy!
I hope you have enjoyed all my patriotic creations this month! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Red White and Blue Beach Huts

Paper Rose Beach Huts Easel Card Really Reasonable Ribbon Slate Blue Wrinkled Ribbon Kathy Clement

 Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Can you hear the beach calling you?  It's calling to me, and I can't wait to stroll along the shore with the wind in my hair and the sand between my toes.  I love to see all the cute little beach cottages along the shoreline.  So when I found this cute beachy paper, I just had to create a little scene with them front and center.  A touch of slate blue wrinkled ribbon topped with natural burlap string is the perfect finishing touch. 

TIP: Dress up the pocket on this card with a ribbon border! The Patriotic Vertical Striped Satin Ribbon on the bottom of the pocket is a near-perfect color match for those cutie pie beach houses. Topped with some vintage buttons, it makes a great design statement.

Because this is an easel card, it closes for storage and shipping.  But I thought you might like to see the details up close and personal.

I love the way the torn paper edges look like waves washing up on the shore! 

The inside has two pockets.  The large pocket serves as the stopper for the easel mechanism. I tucked a little gift card wallet in here.

The smaller pocket on the top of the card holds this cute little collage bookmark.  Braided Natural Burlap String is the perfect topper, especially when you add a little flip flop charm!

If you're a beach lover like me, I hope you get to dig your toes into the sand soon!

Blooming with my Gnomies Card

Hello crafty friends and Happy Monday to you all! Today I have a super fun card I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the Gorgeous Ribbons & flowers. For some reason Ive been so addicted lately to making these darling gnome cards and Memorydex cards, this one happens to be a stamp, and I love him with all the flowers.

so for my card base I started with a 6" x 6" base  and then added on my layers. I love adding lots of layers, and did so here. Next I stamped up this darling gnome and colored him with copics, and then added stickles to his wings, love how he turned out. for his beard I did add some silver pencil to make the hairs, thought it would be fun. Oooo and I had used him again for the inside to hold the sign, thought that would be so cute. After I did my layers I cut out a branch for the greenery and then added several RRR flowers, I will list them all below. The ribbons I chose are the Yellow

other supplies used: white paint pen, copic markers, The Robins Nest Creative dew drops, Hot glue, sewing machine, Jaded Blossom stamps, cheerylynn greenery die, stampinup punches for tag.

Wait Patiently

Hello, creative friends, and thanks for stopping by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today as I, your creative friend Karen, share a pretty card I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It's aways fun to adorn my cards with the pretty ribbons, trims, flowers and twines from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  These sweet products add so much fabulous texture and layering to my cards.
I painted my background using Lilac and Concord Oxide Inks on a white watercolor paper that I cut with Crimped Frame Die from The Greetery.  The stamped leaves and flowers are from a (retired) PTI stamp set called Petite Pots.  The stamped sentiment is from Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.  I covered my mistakes with (3) small flat sequins.
The pretty things you see on the right-hand side of my card include some Solid Black Baker's TwinePlum Baker's TwineDouble Head Stamens, and some pretty Miniature Pastel Sweetheart Blossoms.  I also tucked in some bundled Natural Burlap String which is a great "filler" for floral accents.  It's a very inexpensive trim, it comes in oodles of great colors, and it works perfectly every time.  You can find Burlap String here.
Thanks again for stopping by to say hello.  Be sure to visit Really Reasonable Ribbon and treat yourself to something new.  There are so many great options and you're sure to find the perfect accents for your next projects.  You'll always find lots of great inspiration here on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, so be sure to visit often.

Have a blessed and creative week, friends.

Liberty Dwells Here

Hello, Ribbon Friends! I loved the May Ribbon Club (Patriotic Assortment) so much that I decided to make another project with some of the ribbon! There is so much ribbon in each of the Ribbon Club Assortments that I can never use it all up in one sitting, so I keep the package on my desk for a month or so to see how much of it I can consume before putting it away! 

I created a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card out of blue cardstock. I found some patriotic paper in my stash and a very old star embossing folder found its way onto the desk, too! The sentiment is a digital stamp (Power Poppy) that was just begging to be used with these scrumptious ribbons!
I created a big, loopy bow out of the 5/8" Red Diamond Satin ribbon. I then made two smaller bows with the 3/8" Patriotic Strips on Satin ribbon. I used hot glue to glue all the bows together in a nifty stack!

I added the flowers and a sparkly star to the cluster. I think the red flower is perhaps an out of stock item, but you could substitute a Red Trellis Rose instead. I added one Ivory Open Rose (15mm) and one Royal Blue Open Rose (15mm) to the flower cluster.
I love this patriotic creation! With Memorial Day, Flag Day, and Independence Day coming soon, I will have lots of cards to choose from to either mail or to decorate my desk! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:
Scor-tape (1/2")

Other Supplies Used: Cardstock, decorative paper, embossing folder, digital stamp, sparkly star embellishment, circle die cuts, hot glue, ATG, foam tape

Thinking of You Greeting Card

 Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a greeting card I created with beautiful trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I just love the bright cheerful palate of this greeting card. I created it with a spring inspired collection with stylized flowers for a more updated vibe. 

To keep the layers from looking busy I used a apple green cardstock as solid borders. There's also several dimensional layers for depth.

I've combined flowers from RRR and Little Birdie Crafts for a nice full arrangement. It's finished off with pretty pink plaid ribbon.

Wishing you all a happy and productive day : ) G

America the Beautiful Shaker Card


Photoplay America the Beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon May 2022 Ribbon Club Kathy Clement

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Every year I look forward to the Red, White and Blue Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon. It has never disappointed me, but this year it is extra fabulous!  You'll find stars, stripes, dots and solids in vibrant shades of red, white and blue in this Patriotic Ribbon Club!  It inspired me to create this great big shaker card folio. 

Really Reasonable Ribbon May 2022 Ribbon Club Photoplay America the Beautiful Kathy Clement

This 5 3/4" x 8 1/4" top fold card doubles as home decor, and it serves as a mini album to hold all your fabulous photos.  Here's how I put that Patriotic Ribbon Club Assortment to work.

  1. Create a border with Red Satin and Electric Blue Swiss Dot Ribbon. Use Scor-Tape to attach the ribbon to the card front before you adhere it to the card base. 
  2. Add Red Swiss Dot Ribbon Bows to the corners of the shaker element.  Then top them with a little Ivory Burlap String Bow
Now you're ready to dress up the inside of this card folio!

Score and fold a row of 3x4 images to create a little pull out folio on the top of the card.  

This gives you room for small photos and journaling, too. There's ample room to add a large photo behind this feature.

Create a 5 1/2" x 6" mini folio to tuck into the bottom pocket. This gives you room for even more photos! 

The hidden side pocket inside is a great place to tuck a couple of Polaroid style photo mats.  Remember to leave the top and one side unglued so that it's easy to tuck your photo behind the frame.

Flap features add even more fun to this mini folio.  As a bonus, you can leave the card out as part of your patriotic display this summer!

I hope I've shared some ideas to help you make use of this month's beautiful Ribbon Club.  Have fun with it!
