Repurpose a fun frame with Ribbons

Hi Everyone it's Teresa here for with a quick post for this month to repurpose a cute frame that i got at Michaels recently.  I found this beautiful Wired Woven Check Ribbon  on the website and new i needed to try it and i had to do something fun with it. So i gathered up some things i had i my stash and had fun playing.

The frame was already painted and distressed so i thought it would be fun to add some buttons all around the edges of the frame and then finish it with a really pretty bow made with the wired ribbon
and some seam binding ribbon that i misted and skrunched in the center of it. 

It's simple and easy and now i can find a cute picture of my family to put inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by today :)

Emerald Tartan Plaid and Good Old Sport

Hello, Friends!  It's Kathy here, and I have a brand new ribbon "crush."  This Emerald Tartan Plaid Ribbon caught my eye, and I just had to work it up into  a vintage layered card made with Graphic 45 Good Old Sport papers.

I love the way the deep emerald green is mixed with navy blue stripes, and it makes it the perfect ribbon match for this pretty paper.

I did a bit of stitching on the layers, and matted everything with black cardstock to ground the card and unify all those yummy patterns.  Don't you love that this lady is dressed to go play golf?  I even managed to find a tiny green golf bag in my button stash. How amazing is that?  I added it to a flower cluster of Mixed Color Cosmos, Red Center Sweetheart Blossoms and Two Tone Blue Sweetheart Blossoms.

I can't imagine doing anything athletic in an outfit like this, but it sure does make for a fun card!

Hoping you all have a great day, and plenty of time for crafting this weekend!  Don't forget to link up your creations to the RRR Bright Spring Colors Challenge!  You still have time to throw your hat into the ring!

Easter Wishes

Hello, Cherry here today to share this sweet Easter plaque.  I started with a sturdy chipboard scroll base that I covered in polka dot papers.  I sanded the edges and inked them a bit.  I added tinsel and silver metallic grosgrain around the canvas image.  I also added some homemade paper fringe and a big fluffy flower.  I wanted to add some more character so I added more silver grosgrain along with seam bindings in bay leaf and baby pink along with a sweet metal rimmed tag , a vintage button, and some sweetheart blossoms in pink.  Love the vintage feel the silver grosgrain adds to this little project!  Enjoy, cherry

Floral Thank You

Hi there crafty peeps!  I wanted to share with you today a card I created with some of the supplies from the March Simon Says Stamp Card Kit and some fabulous ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I layered a few of the papers that came in the kit together on top of some yellow shimmer cardstock. The kit came with a die that punches a row of holes and I used that on the top and bottom of the card. I wove Metal Gray Swiss Dots Grosgrain Ribbon through the holes.  I then stamped the sentiment onto a journal card from the paper collection.  I stamped flowers and leaves from the included stamp set with two different shades of yellow ink and a light gray ink.  I fussy cut them all out and layered them onto the card.  Finally, I created a double layered bow with the same Metal Gray Swiss Dots Grosgrain Ribbon and Lemon Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.

I hope you enjoy my sun-shiny Thank You card and it inspires you to make something cheerful as well today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Seeing Swiss Dots and Buttons

Hey everyone.  It's Dana here with you today.  I hope you are having a great day.  I'm back to share a card I made using some fabulous Satin Swiss Dots ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I love this primary color ribbon assortment.  It's perfect for spring.

This ribbon worked perfectly with some polka dot buttons I had stashed in my stamp room.  The colors matched perfectly.  I used the ribbon as stripes across my card and the buttons were the perfect embellishment.

All my card needed at this point was a simple sentiment.  I didn't want anything to take away from my ribbon stripes. This was a quick and cute card to put together.  By using different ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon the look of this card is endless. I used some 3D foam tabs to pop my panel up on a white card base.

Now it's your turn to head on over to the shop and pick up your fabulous Satin Swiss Dots ribbon and make yourself a striped ribbon card.  We would love to see what you create.  Have a fabulous day everyone.

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

50 Shades of Gray RIBBONS

Don't let your mind go there!  I'm talking about RIBBONS, of course.  Who knew that Really Reasonable Ribbon had so many luscious ribbons in gray (or silver, charcoal, and SO much more), and they all blend together SO beautifully.  Just take a look.

 I created this card with LOTS of terrific gray ribbons from the shop including their luscious Wide Gray Netting, gorgeous Seam Binding in Charcoal Gray, Delicate Stitched Satin Silver, Striped Grosgrain Gray, Baker's Twine in Oyster, and the beautiful Metallic String in Silver.  But that's not it!  There's more.

Really Reasonable Ribbon carries SO MUCH MORE than just ribbon.  While ribbon is definitely our specialty, we carry so many gorgeous accents for your cards. As you can see from these photos, there are accents PERFECT for every project.  Look at how nicely these embellishments work with the ribbons.  This can be done with any color scheme.  I used the GORGEOUS Open Roses in Black, and the Open Roses in Ivory (I used a spray to make them gray).  These beautiful flowers come in three different sizes, and I used the 10mm and 15mm sized flowers on this card.

You will also notice that I used a new FAVORITE of mine, which are our LOVELY Spiral Stamens.  I used the Wild Orchid Craft Spiral Stamens in Silver.  This particular color is VERY popular, and tends to sell out quickly.  They've been recently restocked, so now is a great time to get some for yourself.  The silver will blend with almost ANY color scheme, but just in case.....they also come in SIX other amazing and vibrant colors.  I really hope you will take time to browse through the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store today, and treat yourself to some of these GORGEOUS products.  You're also warmly welcomed to stop by my blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to say hello and take a closer look.  Thanks so much for visiting us today!
