Vintage Botany Card

 Hello everyone, and Happy Monday to you all! Today's card was created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using their Beautiful Satins. This one is the Satin with Grosgrain Edge, and its absolutely Gorgeous! Love how easy the bows come together using this ribbon. To see all Satins please visit the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store here.

To create this card here, I chose to use the New Vintage Botany collection from Club Scrap. So dp, stamps, and stencils are all from one collection. I knew Really Reasonable Ribbon would have the perfect ribbon to go with this kit, so I chose the satin with Grosgrain edge, and its perfect. RRR also has some other beautiful satins and taffeta's that match perfectly. LOVE this!!

Next I colored my image with copic markers R85 & RV11 for the flowers, then for the greenery I chose YG03 & G99 they worked perfectly! For the center of the big flower I used some stickles in the color of fruit punch. I have had my stickles for about 9 1/2 years, and they still work perfectly.

I added sewing with my machine, in a light pink, and then added gel dots in white.

My layers are popped with RRR foam Squares. and the layers were glued together before sewing using a small piece of Scor-Tape, both of these can be found at Really Reasonable Ribbon under adhesives

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, as I en joyed creating this card to share with you all! Please leave a comment letting me know what you think :)
Hugs to all,
Cheryl

Seasons Greetings Christmas in July Shaker Tag

Well helloooo there Paper Peeps. Ginny here with another installment of Christmas in July and this time I'm using a garden full of flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon along with trims of course.
 This is just so cheerful and sweet. I stamped and colored those little images. I do love to color.
Did I mention this is a shaker tag? I'm slightly obsessed with them right now.  Inside are coordinating sequins and Shaved Ice. These little cuties were a bit lost on the busy background pattern so layered in a bit of a snowy border hill for them to stand on.

So. Many. Flowers. isn't the burlap trim a wonderful texture behind the snowflake printed satin?
I added a bit of tinsel trim for extra sparkle and included a twine loop to hang.

Really Reasonable Ribbon~  Tea Rose in Red 40 mm, White Open Roses 15mm, Sweetheart Blossoms in Red, Spiral Stamens in Red, Burlap Center Stitch Red, Snowflakes on Red Satin, Scor-Tape, Tombow 3D Foam Tabs.

Okay that's all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Gingerbread Christmas Greeting Card

Hey Peeps! I'm back with another Christmas in July greeting card. This is such a cutee card. I love the festive little gingerbread cookie man.
I'm using the Vertical Stripes on Red Satin to coordinate with the candy cane. There's also Red Cherry Blossom Flowers and large red buttons and pearls to create detail.
A little tinsel and a vintage button are last but not least to complete this fun card.

Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

It's Party Time

It's time for a party, friends!!!  In just three short days, it's MY (Karen's) 52nd Birthday.  I love to celebrate with family and friends, and I'm also blessed to be able to share my special day with all of you.  On behalf of myself and the entire team here at Really Reasonable Ribbon, we want to wish a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all of you celebrating your birthday this month.  This card was so much fun to make, and Really Reasonable Ribbon helped me to make it extra special.
I started with some fun patterned papers, ephemera, stickers, chipboard and half of a paper doily.  I also ran some border stickers across my card.  At the very top, you will see a sticker/tag peeking out of the top.  I tied two lengths of Brown Sugar Baker's Twine to the little tag, and hung a tiny tag from it with a pear-shaped rusty safety pin.
I used lots of Scor-Tape on my card to hold everything together.  This fabulous Adhesive is a must-have item, and really holds things together securely over time.  I use it everywhere...on the papers, the Embellishments, and even the trims.  You really need a reliable and sturdy Adhesive, and Scor-Tape is a fabulous choice.  It comes in various widths for every project.
Another thing I wanted to point out is the fun 3-D paper medallion I added.  I tucked more bundled Natural Burlap String underneath it, and I topped it with a fun 14mm Flower-Shaped Flatback Round Pearl Accent.  There are so many awesome Embellishments in the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop.  And....don't forget about the FUN CHALLENGE taking place on the RRR Blog.

Thanks for visiting!

Sending Sunshine Your Way Layout

Hello ribbon fans!  Adding texture and softness to your layouts is easy by adding beautiful ribbons and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon. 
I added White Netting  for extra texture.  I used the White Aster Daisy and Tea Rose Mixed White/Cream to add dimension and repeat the flowers in the embellishments.
I used the Natural Burlap String to make a bow.
I hope you enjoyed another creative ribbon inspiration.  Hope you add a little softness and texture to your next layout.
