Christmas Skater Shaker Card

Really Reasonable Ribbon-Stamperia Sweet Winter-Shaker Card-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Do you ever create Christmas cards in a non-traditional color palette? I really like to do this, because the cards can be left out on display throughout the winter months. It's like getting more bang for your crafting buck.

Non-Traditional Christmas Shaker Card-Stamperia Sweet Winter-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Kathy Clement

A Bluebird Gingham Bow topped with Silver Metallic String adds to the sparkle and shine of this framed shaker card.

 Everyone knows you need a hot cuppa and a snack to help you warm up after a skating party, so I've tucked a tea bag, honey stick and chocolate treat into the pocket.  Now the card doubles as a gift, which is mighty nice.

Hope you are all enjoying these wonderful days leading up to Christmas.  Whether you are crafting, baking, decorating or shopping, take time to enjoy the wonder of the season.

Let It Snow

It's no secret that I absolutely LOVE using ribbons, trims and twines of different kinds on my cards and projects.  There's just something special about the texture and depth that ribbons, trims and flowers add to our cards.  With that said, I am a HUGE fan of all things from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Not only do they carry the best assortment of ribbons and trims, Mulberry FlowersAdhesivesHair Accessories and more; but this fabulous company is also owned by one of the sweetest gals in crafting that I've ever met.  You'll always receive amazing Customer Service and fair shipping costs at Really Reasonable Ribbon in addition to having access to amazing products at great prices.
This darling card uses lots of patterned paper and ephemera from Crate Paper (my favorite).  I cut the birdhouse and bird using dies from Simon Says Stamp.  At the top of the birdhouse, I added a sweet bow that's tied with Red Seam Binding.  Don't you just love these soft sweet colors and wonderful textures?
Down on the bottom left, I added some bundled Ivory Burlap String underneath all those leafy branches. I also added a few pretty Red Open Roses to the branches.   At the bottom of the birdhouse, I added a piece of Ivory Crochet Lace.  I used lots of Scor-Tape to secure everything in place.  I added some pretty White Flatback Pearl Accents to the chipboard banner.
No matter what you're looking for and no matter what your crafting style or skill level is, there are certain things at Really Reasonable Ribbon that every crafter needs.  I truly hope that you'll stop by and check out Really Reasonable Ribbon and support this awesome company and store-owner.  You'll LOVE what you find there.  Happy crafting, everyone, and thanks so much for stopping by today.

Winter Wishes Christmas Greeting Card

 Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a sweet and festive Christmas greeting card created in a not so traditional color palate.

For this card I'm using my favorite ribbon to fill in this floral arrangement and to anchor the corner. I've also incorporated some flowers from RRR but not before altering them a bit by separating the layers and topping them off with coordinating stamens.

May The Joy of the Season Be Yours

Christmas is fast approaching.  Are you ready?  Are the stockings hung, the presents wrapped, and the errands completed?  Well, if you still have cards left to make, ornaments to repair, etc., then Really Reasonable Ribbon can help.  Some of those old ornaments needing new twine and ribbons can quickly be updated with some pretty new trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
This card uses basic black cardstock layered with a pretty patterned paper.  I added a pretty Christmas sentiment from the Christmas Sentiments 3 Digital Stamp Bundle at Bonnie Garby Designs and I stamped on that with a PTI stamp set.  Next, I ran a length of Olive Wrinkle RibbonCream Seam BindingBlack & White Bold Gingham Ribbon and Solid Red Baker's Twine across the card.
I added some chipboard elements from my stash (trees and snowflake) and then at the top left, I added some bundled Ivory Burlap String underneath the holly and berries I cut from wool felt.  I used lots of Scor-Tape to secure everything in place, and I also added a Silver Glitter Rhinestone just left of the sentiment.
You won't want to miss out on any of the fabulous inspiration here on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog or any of the great bargains and products available at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  We thank you for visiting and hope that you'll stop by often.  Really Reasonable Ribbon wants to be your "go-to" stop for ribbons, trims and twines, adhesives, flowers and more.  Thanks for stopping by today, friends.

Ornaments decorated with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello everyone and Happy Thursday to you all! So todays project is ornaments that I decorated and designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful Delicate Stitched Satin. I thought this ribbon would be perfect for my ornaments I ended up decorating. I love the pink color too.

So for the top one I did hearts and designed it to be the Breast Cancer Ribbon for awareness, this was done up in design space using just a heart shape, then I created it to be the ribbon for my ornament. I thought it turned out darling , and will place this on my tree this year. I will be doing a PINK tree and hoping to use some breast cancer awareness ornaments. I also will cut the ribbon out in a lighter pink to see how it looks. 

for the next one I chose to use a gem sticker on it, and then some Really Reasonable Ribbon again. I also used the hearts on my bows. Love how they both turned out, and will be doing more of them. 

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

A Cup of Christmas Cheer

kathy clement-really reasonable ribbon-christmas bakers twine-echo park gnome for christmas-spellbinders merry mugs

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  You are cordially invited to join me for a cup of Christmas Cheer!  Nothing says Christmas is coming like a festive card dressed up with Christmas Baker's Twine Bows!  It adds just the right touch of Christmas whimsy to this festive greeting card.  Best of all, it keeps the card from becoming too bulky, so it is still easy to mail. 

I've added it to the top of my little gift tag along with a Red Sweetheart Blossom.  Then I tucked it under my cluster of holiday foliage to add extra fulness and texture.  And it does a great job of dressing up the candy canes in the die cut mugs. 

Here's a peek at the inside of the card. 

It's always fun to add a little surprise message behind a flap. 

And a Christmas Baker's Twine bow finishes off this cute tag perfectly.

Have you started your Christmas crafting yet?  It's never too early!

Wishing you all a day filled with good cheer and creativity!

A Pocketful of Christmas Fun

One of my favorite little gift-giving projects has always been a good old paper bag pocket.  I have a wide assortment of paper bags for this very reason, and I always greatly enjoy decorating them.  With Really Reasonable Ribbon, I know I'll always find the perfect twines, trims and goodies to help me adorn them with style.  How sweet is this?
I used a basic brown paper bag, and I folded it halfway up, covered the bottom portion with a piece of vintage sheet music that I stamped on with a new Papertrey Ink stamp set.  I machine stitched that to my bag base.  Next, I ran a length of Scor-Tape along the inside lip of the brown paper bag, and I attached a piece of Ivory Crochet Lace at the top.  You can use any type of Crochet Lace to achieve this look.
At the bottom, I attached a piece of Black & White Bold Gingham Ribbon, some wool felt holly and berries that I cut using a Papertrey Ink die.  I also attached a nice long length of Ivory Burlap String and some Cherry Baker's Twine on the rusty jingle bells.  I tucked a gift card in the pocket along with two tags that I adorned with Red & White Bold GinghamMoss Green & Cream Gingham Ribbon, and several Double Head Stamens.
Making a fun paper bag pocket is a great way to give someone something special without spending a whole lot of money.  You can tuck in some photos, a note, a gift card, candies, etc. because there's an automatic built-it pocket for this purpose.  Go ahead....grab a paper bag, some trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and give this a try.
Really Reasonable Ribbon will always provide the perfect products to help you create wonderful cards and projects.  There's lots of great inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and lots of great shopping that awaits you at RRR.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.
