Really Reasonable Ribbon September Blog Hop

For the Graciellie Design Blog Hop, please scroll down to the next post.

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon September 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.
This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a fun Halloween assortment of ribbon.

Not a member yet?
The September Ribbon Club 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.

Yup, I’m still playing with my Distress Inks and the background paper on this card was made using a variety of Distress Inks in orange tones and yellow and greens for the oval behind the sentiment.

I’m not a big fan of spiders in every day life, but these guys are just too adorable, don’t you think?

I ran a piece of the 5/8″ Black Bold Plaid Ribbon topped with 3/8″ Halloween Bold Diagonal Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon from the assortment across the middle of the card under the sentiment panel for a little extra color.

Notice that I was still able to add mulberry paper – even to a Halloween card.  I just used black mulberry paper.
Here’s a little peek at the inside of the card.  Why not decorate the inside too??!!

My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the September  Ribbon Club Assortment.

Now for my headband of the month:
This headband was created on a 1/2″ White Plastic Headband using the one of the 3/8″ printed satin ribbons from the September Ribbon Club Assortment.  I was looking for something with a little more contrast than two prints, so I used the back of the pumpkins on black grosgrain ribbon.  Sneaky, right?!

Cheery Lynn Designs Halloween Themed Challenge


Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Halloween themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog.  I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.10-13-16-2

I love the wonderful subtle texture you get by using the Large Parallel Rectangular Pierce Plate.  I use it quite a bit when a white background is just too plain.

My sentiment was cut in black and orange and layered to create the shadow effect.  I cut my pumpkins in orange, then added brown stems and backed them with yellow for a jack-o-lantern look.  I have some grass behind them.  My sentiment is up on foam tape and I shaped the bat wings a bit before adding the bats.10-13-16-3I added the boo sentiment and a scary ghost to the inside of my card.10-13-16-4
