My tags today were created with the fun Penguin Pals set and the Winter Holiday Words set from Cheery Lynn Designs along with the Nesting Doll Oval #1 set.  They make for adorable gift tags when adorned with some of the ribbon from the October Ribbon Club Assortment.  I also added a pretty 15mm Red Open Rose to each tag.

Happy Anniversary Card

Hello ribbon lovers.  Bonnie here with you today with an anniversary card I created using pretty ribbon, mulberry flowers and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I started off with some Distress Ink paper I made using the color Stormy Sky for a nice mottled background paper.  I then selected the digital sentiment from the Happy Greetings set from Graciellie Design.  I reshaped the digital sentiment to perfectly fit in my oval die and printed it out.  I also used the Lattice 2 die from Cheery Lynn Designs to layer over the bottom 2/3 of my card for added interest.
I ran a piece of 5/8″ Silver Glitz Ribbon topped with 3/8″ Mixed Blue Confetti Dots Grosgrain Ribbon across the middle of the card to cover the top of the lattice die.  I added the sentiment over the ribbon and then added three Royal Blue 20mm Open Roses under the sentiment.
My card was topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Capri Blue and Royal Blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.  The center of the bow is adorned with a pretty Heart Shaped Pearl Embellishment.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #167 – Anything Goes theme

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


This time we have an Anything Goes Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.

For the base of my tag I created a pretty paper using Distress Inks.  I added some additional ink to a scrap of that same paper to make the butterfly paper a bit darker so it would stand out.

I used some pretty 15mm Open Roses for the body of the butterfly and for the butterfly antennae I took a piece of White Spiral Stamen and straightened it out and glued it on top of the cut out.

The sentiment is a great stamp from Quietfire Design.  I added three pretty 10mm Star Flatback Beads above the sentiment.

I took several strands of Burlap String in White, Pink and Light Blue and attached it to the tag through the top hole.  I then topped that with a bow.

My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using two of the 5/8″ width ribbons from the June Ribbon Club Assortment (available through the end of July).

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