Really Reasonable Ribbon December Blog Hop

Welcome to the RRR December 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 beautiful mix of blues and white.

This is a great mix for winter projects along with baby, Father’s Day and lots of other projects through the year.  

Not a member yet?  JOIN TODAY and begin with this gorgeous assortment.
I just love a blue and white color palette for a winter card, don’t you?  I tied a gorgeous bi-color double-loop bow using two of the ribbons from the assortment.  The bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  
For a video tutorial on how to make this bow, please click HERE.
I pulled out my Cheery Lynn Designs dies to create this card.  I love all their gorgeous doily dies and the roses were made with the tea rose die.  See supply list below for all the dies used.
I also ran a strip of the navy satin with grosgrain edge ribbon from the assortment across the center of the card under the image and topped that with the cute mitten and snowflake print grosgrain ribbon.  Isn’t a gorgeous bow the perfect finishing touch on any card?!
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
Now for the headbands of the month.
The first is created on a 3/4″ white plastic headband with two of the 5/8″ solid ribbons from the December Ribbon Club assortment.  I had a handmade paper rose left over from my card, so I thought I make a clip and use that on my headband.  I created a 1-1/2″ bow with four loops on each side on my Bow-it-All V2.0 and just fanned the loops out to create a rosette.  Then I added the rose to the center.

This next headband is clearly my favorite design.  You see it quite often.  I love how the diagonal stripes wrap around the 1/2″ white plastic headband base.  This one is made with two of the 3/8″ printed ribbons from the assortment.  The different pattern is created by adjusting the starting positions of the ribbons.

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

New Non-Traditional Christmas Colors Themed Challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Non-Traditional Christmas 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 went a little crazy with my ‘non-traditional’ colors, but I love the way this card turned out.  I love all the layers and I had a lot of fun creating the multi-colors poinsettias.
I ran a strip of Apple Green Diamond Satin Ribbon across the middle of the card under the image and topped that with some fun Christmas Lights Multi Satin Ribbon.  My bi-color double-loop bow was made with Shocking Pink and Turquoise Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I used my Bow-it-All V2.0 to create the bow.

A Little Birthday Wish for a Great Friend Card

Hi friends.  Today I have a birthday card to share featuring some great doily and flower dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and a fabby bi-color double-loop bow with ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I love to use Stick It! adhesive on all my intricate die cuts.  It’s a very thin adhesive that you apply to the back of your cardstock before cutting the die.  You just peel and stick the adhesive to the back side of your cardstock.  Then place your die on the right side of the paper and cut as usual.  When your are ready to attach the die cut to your card or project, simply peel off the backing and position the die where you want it.  The great thing is, the adhesive does not ‘grab’ immediately, so you have time to play with the positioning.  When you are satisfied, simply press down firmly with your fingers or a small brayer to permanently adhere it.
My roses were created using the Large, Medium and Miniature Rose dies from Cheery Lynn Designs. I cut the pieces from dark purple cardstock and marbled momi paper, shaped the petals and created the flowers.  The great thing about making your own flowers is they will always perfectly match your project.
  
I topped the card off with a pretty bi-color double-loop bow made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 with Rose Bloom and Delphinium Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  To view a video tutorial on how to create this bow, please click HERE.  
I also have a strip of Silver Glitz Ribbon topped with 3/8″ Rose Bloom Double-faced Satin Ribbon running across the center of the card under the sentiment panel.  The silver ribbon helps to pull out the pretty silver accents on the momi paper background.
