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.

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.
 
This time we have a Mother’s Day Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.

 I created my pretty background paper with Distress Inks.  I covered the background paper with the French Lattice Die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I stamped my sentiment and then cut it out with the Oval Classic Stacker die and matted with the XM7 Oval Die.

I ran a layered strip of ribbon using Shocking Pink Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and Pink and Green Confetti Dot Grosgrain Ribbon under the sentiment panel.  I embellished under the sentiment with a variety of Mulberry Flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  There is a wide variety of offerings and you can always find the perfect flower for any project!

 My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8″ Shocking Pink and Sherbet Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Happy Anniversary Card

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing a pretty anniversary card I made for my sister-in-law and brother-in-law showcasing some pretty ribbon, embellishments and mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Since I was using some Distress Ink papers that I had already made, this was a pretty quick card to put together.  I cut my background die and layered it on the Distress Ink paper and then added a brown and navy blue layer with a final layer of natural mulberry paper at the bottom..  I then wrapped a piece of Navy Diamond Satin Ribbon across the center and topped that with Natural Burlap String.  This panel was then attached to a 5-1/2″ square navy blue card base that was topped with a piece of my Distress Ink paper.

My sentiment was stamped and die cut and layered again on brown and navy cardstock with a final layer of natural mulberry paper at the bottom.  The sentiment was attached to the card front with 3D Foam Tabs.
I added three Chrysanthemums from the Mixed Earth Tone Chrysanthemum Assortment under my sentiment.  I curled the wire around a needle tool before I added them.  These chrysanthemums some in a variety of colors and are a great addition to any project.

My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using Turftan Brown and Capri Blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.
