Well it’s that time again when us girls at Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings get to share our projects showcasing the fabulous trims in the Ribbon Club Assortment. This month it’s super sweet and cheerful holiday colors and patterns.
If you’re just getting started….you need to click Here to start at the beginning. Otherwise you should be hopping here from the lovely and talented Misty.
Okay…here’s the project I created using the assortment:
This card has soooo many glittery inked and chipboard elements. As you can imagine I was quite a mess working on it!
I really thought the Silver Satin Ribbon coordinated perfectly with my shabby chic theme. I made one nice loopy bow and topped it off with Baker’s twine in oyster. Then in the center I added 2 long crystal topped pins that I embellished with snowflakes and 3 painted and glittered tiny jingle bells. Swoon.
I crinkled up the top layer of paper for texture and added the chunky chipboard snowflake that I painted and inked then topped with tinsel glitter. Last but not least a pretty little vintage button.
There’s a paper rosette that I inked…and dry brushed and Stickled along with a larger chunky chipboard snowflake. I topped it off with a lovely little printed tag donated by a dear friend. The little button on the tag and snowflake were from her too : ) Thanks a bunch. Notice how I dry brushed the bottom paper pattern in white to give it a whispy snowy effect?
After last weeks Halloween Banner glitter mess I swore I wasn’t going to be glittering any letters anytime soon…but….I just couldn’t resist. I elevated these numbers on foam to give them some dimension. The sweet little lace border is Catherine White Crochet Lace.
Okay that’s it for my project…you’re next stop in the hop is Cherry. I always love every little thing she makes…I can’t wait to see what she came up with..I know it will be fabulous.
Thanks so much for joining us for our blog hop this month. I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
I got to spend a lovely afternoon playing paper at the shop with my dear friend Lisa. She was whipping up a Halloween banner and I was creating some Christmas goodies. So I guess we’re a shop for all seasons lol. The perfect end to my day was a lovely chat with my new friend Jeanne Marie from Florida, the creative world is a small world after all!
I wound up with two chipboard holiday decorations..one vintage and one retro : )
All the trims I used were from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Red Gingham, Red Wrinkle Ribbon, Ivory Wrinkle Ribbon, Red Burlap, Lace.
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day filled with friends and creativity : ) G
As promised here is a shabby pink Birthday card. I told you all I was going to make a shabby card…and I did. Then I made a card with on owl on it. Not sure how to tie that into the shabby theme lol…but that’s how I roll right???
The answer to every crafty question should be….put a big flower on it! And some pretty trims….and lot’s of inking, and layers of paper : )
Don’t forget the buttons and doily! The trims I used for this card: Ivory Satin and Juliet lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon
Did you think I was gonna show the owl card next? I did too : ( Unfortunately the pic won’t load dang it. So I guess I’ll save that for another day. It is pretty cute though…if I do say so myself.
I shared in the last post that we were going to enjoy our small town Friday night lights! The band was awesome as always and the team won 38-6 good job Pirates that’s a great start to the season! And the weather was just beautiful!
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative: ) G
Here’s a fun vintage card I created with lot’s of layered vintage images and paper patterns in a classic black and creme color scheme.
I added some real vintage buttons and a canvas scallop for texture. The lovely bow is created with Black Seam Binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I used more of the canvas to make a lovely rolled flowers. I helps to balance the colors so my card won’t be too dark. I love how it turned out!
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
There’s a new challenge posted at Let’s Get Shabby. The theme this month is to create a project inspired by a piece of shabby chic china. This is wonderful idea…..but for me….well I’m the only shabby chic country girl who doesn’t own china. I am so lucky to be married to a wonderful man who put himself through college cooking in a very upscale Italian restaurant. To chefs…the food should be beautiful…not the plate it served on…..so we have white dishes…..which is not too inspiring for craft projects lol. Thankfully Pinterest is full of beautiful china dish images….so here is the inspiration I found…
I loved the border….and the sweet little pink flowers. Here is my layout inspired by the china…
This beautiful young lady is the Daughter of my dear friend Belinda. Heading for the prom with her date Thomas. Isn’t that the cutest couple??? Thanks for sharing Belinda : )
Okay…now it’s your turn to get inspired by china and create a project to share in the challenge….the prize this month is a great selection of chipboard!!!! Click this link to head over to check out the details…good luck to all who enter!
