Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge – Monochromatic with Ribbon or Lace Theme

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.

This time we have a Monochromatic Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.


Have you seen the beautiful new June Ocean Breeze Ribbon Club Assortment yet from Really Reasonable Ribbon?  It’s a pretty mix of colors that works perfect for those summer beach themed projects or mix and match for any number of occasions.

The June assortment has 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.

I pulled the pink toned ribbons from the June Ribbon Club Assortment assortment to use on my card today.

My bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using the 5/8″ peony Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from the June Ribbon Club Assortment.  The centers of my flowers are 8 and 10mm Half Pearls.

For a video tutorial on how I created my pretty bow, please click HERE.  I followed this tutorial except I stopped at two layers instead of making the triple layer bow.

I hope you’ll head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and play along with our challenge.  Any type of project is welcome.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Wishes Card

Hey ribbon lovers.  Today I have a pretty birthday card to share with you featuring some bright colors and pretty ribbon and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I love these bright colors for summer.  I made my background with Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks.  I used a stencil on the top and the bottom is just sponged and spritzed inks.

I didn’t have a lot of time to make flowers this time and this Indie Bouquet  die set from Cheery Lynn Designs has easy ‘cut and go’ flowers.  The foliage is from the Floral Bouquet Kit Die Set.  I adhered yellow 10mm Resin Pieces to the center of my flowers.

I stamped my sentiment and then added an orange layer and some white mulberry paper.  I wrapped a layered piece of ribbon consisting of 5/8″ apple green Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and 3/8″ Citrus Chevron Grosgrain Ribbon across the middle of my card securing in the back.  I then adhered the sentiment oval on top of that ribbon band.
My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Daffodil and Tangerine Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I added an 8mm White Half Pearl to the center of my bow.

My color palette today is red, white and blue which corresponds with the Really Reasonable Ribbon May Ribbon Club Assortment.  This is a very versatile and bold color palette and I think it works for just about any summer occasion.  I love how it looks on this birthday card.

I created my blue background paper and the papers I used for my flowers and butterfly using distress inks and distress oxide inks.  I used just about all the reds, blues and greens to create the papers.  I cut and shaped my flowers from the Floral Bouquet Kit from Cheery Lynn Designs using a foam pad and stylus and added the foliage and flowers to the lower left corner building from the bottom up starting with the foliage.  The flower centers are 10 and 14mm Half Pearls from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the May Ribbon Club Assortment.  You can see a third red patterned satin ribbon peeking out beneath the flowers and butterfly that I wrapped around the center of the card.
