Autumn Inspiration Day with Carolyn.....

Hi ya peeps. Today it's my turn to inspire you to get your crafty on. I spent the weekend up in our Wisconsin home enjoying fall colors and crisp air. I really love the fall colors of yellow and reds. Just a pop here and there really make the landscape pop. For my card this week, I am going to use yellow and red for my inspiration.

I was thrilled to use 3 different ribbons from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store to make my image pop. When using an image that has a hint of color, use ribbons of the same color family for a good way to enhance and bring attention to your focal point. I really like the different textures and of course I used my Bow It All to make my double bow.

Ribbon Recipe: Mini Pom Poms White, Plaid Ruffle Red and Seam Binding Cream.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the Fall weather and don't forget to join in on our challenges.

Pick Of The Patch!

Hello and happy Monday my ribbon loving friends! Linsey here and I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for a productive week ahead! I'm getting a head start on my cards for Halloween--Now I don't do scary, but I definitely do cute and I think this sweet little image from Crafty Secrets fits the bill!

I enjoyed making this card, adding black stickles to the photo corners for some sparkle and a few bling and enamel dots just for fun! I also love how versatile paper doilies are--like how on my card, it adds a bit of delicate softness and makes the kitty and peeking child seem even sweeter! I adore this shimmery orange ribbon from the September Ribbon Club Assortment! It's so pretty and a great bargain, as is always the case at Really Reasonable Ribbon! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT day!!

Witch Way Halloween Card with Ribbon by Jenn Cochran

Hello everyone!  So glad you joined me today!  Jenn here from Jax Bean Stalks.  I cannot believe it is almost OCTOBER!!!  This year has gone by so fast.  Guess it's time to start thinking about Halloween!  I LOVE Halloween!  Today I have a fun Halloween card for you.

I have used the NEW Satin Swiss Dots Ribbon (it was also in the Sept. Ribbon Club Assortment).  I tied little knots and attached them to the side of my card!  I really like the look of this ribbon...hope you do too!

The ribbon really looks great with this fun Halloween themed image and papers.

Halloween Cards to Share Today

It's seems like I never get my things done in time to give, so this year I am putting a day aside to make lots of cards and things to give away and have them ready on time :)  Today I have two cards that I made from a Doodlebug pad and stickers that I had in my stash.  The papers and things went beautifully with the new September Ribbon Club Assortment from Really  Reasonable Ribbon, so it was fun and easy to do.

I am more of a cutesy Halloween type girl, so all the cute characters they had in the Halloween set were really fun to use. The ribbon I picked for this one is one of my favorite called Swiss Mini Dots and comes in lots of colors and the apple green for this project matched perfectly.

For my Let's {arty card I made a fence with a Spellbinders die in black cardstock and the moon was made with a scalloped circle die.  Over that I created this cute little scene with all their stickers.  I used Black Burlap String to finish up the bottom of the card and I think it was the perfect touch to finish off my card.  Seems like everything looks better with ribbons on it, right:)

Thanks for stopping over and checking out what's new... Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Bella Strawberries with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello everyone, and Happy Friday to all! 
Today's card was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon using beautiful trims, flowers, and ribbon! It also features The Scrapping Cottage!

Card Measures 5 x 5

I used the Moss Green Leaves Trim to wrap around the front of my card.  Then I tied it, and added a Delicate Stitched Satin Pearl Pink bow, topping that with the beautiful Sweetheart Blossoms that I LOVE!!!  

I am having so much fun using these beautiful CottageCutz Petites. It's been years since I have made 4 x 4 cards, and they are super fun and easy to make. Once I added the Moss Green Leaves Trim, I was able to add my scalloped circle with the strawberry and sentiment. Lastly I added the bow and Sweetheart Blossoms.

I used the Sweet CottageCutz Strawberry Petite on my card. Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits, and LOVE how it goes perfectly with the design paper I had picked up months ago at American Crafts.

Supplies Used:
CottageCutz/Strawberry Petite
Really Reasonable Ribbon/Moss Green Leaves
Really Reasonable Ribbon/Delicate Stitched Satin Pearl Pink
Really Reasonable Ribbon/Sweetheart Blossoms
Really Reasonable Ribbon /Scor-Tape
American Crafts Design Paper
American Crafts Card Stock
Martha Stewart Around the page punch
Copics for coloring

I hope you enjoyed my card for today.  This one was super fast and easy to make!
Thank you for looking!!

hugs to all,
