RRR ‘Spring Colors & Ribbon’ Challenge

Hi everyone. It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings Blog and this time the theme is ‘Anything Goes & Ribbon’. 
Today I have a pretty set of Thank You cards in ‘Springy’ pastels.  This can work for a little girl’s birthday, a baby shower, or whatever else you want to use them for.  It’s always good to have a stash of Thank You cards on hand.  Might be a nice add-on gift for someone too…..
I layered my sentiment over some gorgeous ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I layered a piece of 3/8″ White Satin w/Grosgrain Edge on top of a pastel colored piece of 5/8″ Diamond Satin to match the color of each card and ran it right down the middle.  Then I added the layered sentiment on top of the ribbon.  A very simple ribbon treatment for a quick CAS card.

Why not head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings Blog and enter this fun challenge.  There is a $10 gift certificate up for grabs for one lucky random participant.  It could be you!!
Thanks for stopping by today.

RRR February Blog Hop

Welcome to the RRR February Blog Hop.
If you arrived here from Jeanne’s awesome 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.
This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is Easter/Spring themed. I just love all the pretty Spring colors.  I just can’t wait for Spring!!

Today I have a card for you using my very favorite ribbon from the assortment – the Wisteria Diamond Satin.  It’s just such a pretty bluey-purpley color.  Swoon!!!  I’m still working on my CAS style although I’ve got some layers going on here.  Do you thinks it’s possible for me to combine my love of CAS and my love of layers?  What would I call that??  hehehe

This angle shows off the embossing a bit better.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Your next stop is Tammy Louise’s wonderful blog.

I would love for you to leave a comment before you go.

Thinking of You……..

Hi everyone, Bonnie here with a card today.  I actually like the way this card turned out, which is not something I say much of the time.  We are our own worst critics, right?

I wanted to play with one of my new Spellbinder Shapeability dies and this one is called Botanical Swirls.  It’s really very pretty, isn’t it?  I cut it out of some hunter green cardstock and layered it on a nice cream panel and made a little frame out of the moss green cardstock.  Then I layered some 5/8″ Ivory Diamond Satin on top of some 7/8″ Hunter Grosgrain and wrapped a piece of Moss Jute String around a couple of times and tied it in a knot.  Then I added my sentiment on top of that. This is a nice way to add some ribbon and still have the card remain flat enough for mailing.


Well, it’s snowing here AGAIN on the east coast.  Blizzard warnings out all day today.  So if you are socked in as I am today, how about entering a challenge or two?  My card above would qualify for our current RRR Challenge with a theme of Monochromatic Color and Ribbon.


RRR is also sponsoring a challenge over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and there are still a couple of days to enter that for a chance to win a $15 RRR Gift Certificate.   Head over and take a look!


Thanks for stopping by today.
