Really Reasonable Ribbon August Blog Hop

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon August Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Cheryl’s blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.  Be sure to comment on the post on the RRR Blog for a chance to win your own August Ribbon Club Assortment.

This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is all about autumn.  Don’t you just love creating with beautiful autumn colors?!!

Not a member yet?
The August Ribbon Club Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed ribbon collection.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

This month I created a beautiful autumn themed greeting card full of gorgeous realistic looking leaves.  I just LOVE the pretty Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink paper that I created for the leaves.  I also used some Distress Glaze on the leaves to give them just a hint of shine.  So much fun!

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
B901 Acorns and Leaves 
DL280 Royal Scandinavian Doily
LPC1 Square Pierce & Cut Tool Lge Silver

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the August Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the center was topped with an Antique Bronze Steampunk Metal Gear Embellishment.  I also added a double layer of pretty ribbons across the center of the card under the sentiment.

  1. I love how you added a thinner ribbon to the green ribbon across the center of your beautiful card. Love all the pretty layers, the leaves & acorns, and as always, your sweet double bow. The headband is so gorgeous; love the printed grosgrain ribbon.

  2. Thank you for sharing your beautiFALL card with us at Through The Craft Room Door; so full of lovely textures, colors and details.

  3. Bonnie – I always like seeing the headbands you create – they are awesome – love my Bow-It-All as well – now that fall collection of ribbons – well that is the best ever and your card is stunning with the fabulous layout and the autumn embellishments – Fall is my favorite season! It is beautiful here in Michigan when the leaves turn – thanks for the hop and for showing us your lovely art work – have a blessed week

  4. This headband looks amazing! I think I would have popped that acorn with foam tape for a little more depth on this Fall card. LOVE how you’ve colored/inked the leaves…very attractive and eye catching.

  5. Bonnie what a gorgeous Fall card! I love that acorn and the shading on the leaves. Also your new little bow is sweet! I think the ribbons for this month take you from Summer’s end right into Fall. Your headband is pretty as well love the pattern tfs.

  6. Your card is just beautiful! I love the mulberry paper between the layers. It reminds me of the first frosty morning in the autumn the way you have fringed it out so dainty. The leaves look amazing with the inky distress. The pretty ribbons are the perfect accents.
    Cute little headband for some lucky little lady. How cute for a special fall occasion.
    Thank you so much for sharing your lovely work! 🙂
