Hello!

Hello ribbon fans! Today I am sharing a card with one of my favorite ribbons -- Double-Faced Ivory Satin. It is a DREAM ribbon and adds elegance to any project!
I am quite a novice at using my Bow-It-All, but am learning a little more each time I tie a ribbon. Bonnie has some simply wonderful tutorials on different bows and designs she makes, and they are really helpful for a visual person like I am. BUT -- you MUST have this tool if you love bows! It makes it very easy - even when you don't get it quite right at the beginning!
I tied a double loop bow for this project using the yummy Ivory Satin ribbon, and help all of my layers together with 1/4" Scor-Tape (another MUST-HAVE!). The papers and ribbon and pearls remind me of a sweet Bed and Breakfast that we stayed at recently - from times gone past!

Are you a Ribbon Club member yet? If not, you need to RUN (yes, run!) right over and join! We have a new collection coming out in a few days and you will love it!

Balmy Breeze and Sage Green Satin

Hello, Friends!  Kathy here to share an idea for a nautical birthday card


I paired Heartfelt Creation's Balmy Breeze papers with gorgeous Sage Green Satin Ribbon, Natural Burlap String and Ivory Burlap Woven Ribbon.  I love all the wonderful texture and shine this adds to the card.   



If you haven't worked with Woven Burlap Ribbon before, I highly recommend it.  For the header on this card, I just gently separated the tightly woven fibers to get this lovely open weave.

  
The flower is hand made using the Botanical Roses stamp and die from Heartfelt.  I colored it to match the gorgeous sage green satin ribbon.

 
A panel of designer paper and a simple stamped sentiment circle complete the card.

Nautical roses and sage green ribbon make me ridiculously happy.  How about you?

Thanks for stopping by!
Cheerio,
kathy

Winking Owls..

Hi guys!  Happy Monday!  Cherry here to share a couple of cards today! 
  All about things that go bump in the night....
Winking owls and wide eyed jack o lanterns....it's all good!  I used burnt rust seam binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon to embellish....
and a little bit of black licorice twine.  I added in my buttons and layers using 3d foam tabs for dimension.  And that was that....what do you think?


Are you ready for Fall?  I am if I can make holiday cards but keep the sunshine!  Well folks, that is it for me today...as always thanks for visiting the RRR blog!  hugs, cherry

Another Birthday & More Gorgeous Than Ever

Hello everyone and Happy Sunday to all! Cheryl here today, and I am sharing a card created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the Beautiful Shimmer Satin Ribbon.  LOVE this ribbon from RRR store, and there are LOTS of shades of this beautiful Satin to choose from.

On my card I chose to use the Shimmer Satin in Light Orchid.  I also used some White 1.5" Silky Crush ribbon, and then the some Bakers Twine.

Flowers are cut with JustRite flower dies, then dusted with dusty concord distress ink. I then used the Glass Flower technique on these.

For the leaves I used Really Reasonable Ribbon's 30mm green leaves, and dusted those with StampinUp! Kiwi Kiss ink.
My sentiment was stamped in the dusty concord distress ink as well, and then I airbrushed around it using copic BV00. The button I used is an OLD wood button.

I hope you enjoyed my post for today!!!
Thank you for stopping by!
hugs to all,
Cheryl

Imagine Balloon Greeting Card

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a card I created with fabby trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon, gold foiling, flowers and die cuts.
These are pretty papers from BoBunny along with the gold foiling.
This gorgeous bow was created with Champaign Striped Chevron Twill, Antique Gold Burlap String, and pretty flowers.
Layers of die cuts  are topped with graphically patterned papers, metal gears and additional flowers.
The focal image here is a hand colored stamp tucked just into a chipboard zipper.
I added the sentiment with a little volume worked in, and finished the card with an additional stamped balloon, berry pick, gold mesh, acrylic film strip and metal clip.

Okay that's all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
