Really Reasonable Ribbon November Blog Hop

Welcome to the RRR November Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Amber’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.
This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a gorgeous mix of silver and gold.  Perfect for Christmas, New Year’s projects, weddings and more! 

This great assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try out new ribbon styles.  JOIN TODAY as a treat for yourself!  Looking for a gift for a crafty friend?  RRR offers Ribbon Club Gift Subscriptions in 3, 6 and 12-month options. 

My card today uses two of the styles from the November Ribbon Club assortment.  I love the old gold shimmer satin which I used for the bow and I also wrapped a piece across the center panel of the card under the sentiment and topped it with the silver and gold diagonal stripe satin ribbon.  My double-loop bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.

I couldn’t help myself this month and I created two woven ribbon headbands.  
I was pleasantly surprised by the fun design the diagonal stripe satin made on the first headband that I made using a 1/2″ white plastic headband base.  This is the basic woven ribbon headband technique.  By moving the starting position of the ribbons, you can create lots of different patterns such as the diagonal stripe look below.
For a video tutorial on how this headband was made, please click HERE.
I knew I would love the two shimmer satin ribbons together to create this Easy Woven Ribbon Headband.  I started with a 3/4″ white plastic headband as the base.  This is the easiest of the woven ribbon headbands to create, so if you are just starting out, this is a great one for you.

I Believe in Santa…

Hi friends.  I have a fun Christmas card today embellished with gorgeous ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon and some fun handmade flowers using the Shasta Daisy Strip die from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Today I’m introducing a new Topsy-Turvy Bow which I created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.   I’ll be back with a video tutorial on how to create this bow really soon.  
The topsy-turvy bow is a double-loop bow in the back and the top is a single loop bow which is slightly larger than the back loops for a fun look.

My bow and center band ribbons all came from the gorgeous November Ribbon Club Assortment.  It’s a mix of beautiful silver and gold ribbons which is great for Christmas and New Years projects as well as wedding themed projects.  Treat yourself and subscribe today!  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

I just love the gold paired with the red and white on this card.  The beautiful die cuts and handmade flowers help to showcase the fun sentiment.

New ‘Autumn Colors’ Themed Challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Autumn Colors themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog.  I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.

I really love the rich warm autumn color palette so an autumn colors challenge theme is perfect for me!  I cut my French Lattice Frame out of cream cardstock which I backed with Stick It adhesive.  I then layered it on my rust cardstock and trimmed it to the size I wanted.  I added a thin border of cream cardstock again and mounted it on my card.  I printed my sentiment out on cream cardstock, die cut it with my oval die, inked the edges a little and layered it on two more oval layers.   I added a big handmade black-eyed Susan Flower and a dainty little double-loop bow made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 Tool with 5/8″ Kiwi Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
For a video tutorial on how I created this bow, please click HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll head on over to the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog and play along with our challenge for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Cheery Lynn Designs Store.
