Really Reasonable Ribbon November Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Really Reasonable Ribbon 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 along the way and on the RRR blog post for a chance to win a November Ribbon Club Assortment.
 

This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a beautiful mix of Country Holiday themed ribbon.

JOIN TODAY!

The November Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 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.

Today I went for a pink and purple holiday color palette.  I really do love these colors for Christmas cards.  Don’t you?  They are also great for creating generic holiday cards and winter themed cards.
My lovely digital sentiment is from the Winter Blessing Digital Stamp Set from Graciellie Design.
I just love digital stamps as I can resize them  and even reshape them a bit if necessary to fit in to any die that I want to use.  This makes the stamps very versatile and easy to use.

I used a variety of different colors and styles of mulberry paper roses and some pink Spiral Stamens to embellish below my sentiment.
 My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the 5/8″ ribbon styles from the November Ribbon Club Assortment.  The center of the bow is adorned with a 15mm Open Rose.

Happy Birthday Card for Someone Special

Hello friends.  Today I’m sharing a pretty birthday card that I created for my Mom featuring lots of beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.

I find that birthday cards are the most needed cards and no matter how many I make, I always seem to be behind.  This Birthday Wishes Circle Sentiment is a great addition to your die collection and it can be used over and over in different settings without looking like you are always using the same die.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
B783 Birthday Wishes Circle

My Tea Roses were created by alternating layers of solid cardstock with Distress Ink paper.  I just love two tone roses.  I shaped the petals before layering them for a realistic rose look.

I topped my card off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Rose Bloom and Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The bow was topped off with a pretty Heart Shaped Pearl Embellishment also from RRR.

I also ran a piece of Regal Purple Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon topped with Tutti Frutti Chevron Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon across the center of the card under the sentiment.

Wishing You a Blessed Winter

Hello friends.  Today I’m sharing a card featuring pretty ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon paired with wonderful digital stamps and digital papers from Graciellie Design.

For my card today, I used some digital images from the Winter Blessings Set from Graciellie Design and ribbon from the November Ribbon Club Assortment.

The November Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.  Treat yourself today!

This was a really quick and easy card to create.  I simply arranged the pine branch and sentiment as I wanted them, printed it out on cardstock and cut the rectangle to size.  I quickly colored the pine branch with Copic Markers G99 and G99 by just flicking.  No need for precision for this coloring job.

Once colored, I layered the central panel on some different color cardstock layers to coordinate with my bow and boom – DONE.  This would be a really great quick and easy assembly line Christmas card, especially if you are low on time.  You could even simplify or eliminate the bow for additional time savings.  The simple ribbon across the center under the sentiment would be enough ribbon if you want the card to be flat for mailing.

Here is a look at the inside using two more of the digis in the set.  No reason why you can’t make the inside pretty too.

My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the 5/8″ ribbons from the November Ribbon Club Assortment.  The center is finished off with a pretty 12mm Dotted Wave Rhinestone.

Copic Markers:  G94, G99, (interior E35, E37)
