Soft and Shabby Chic Sympathy Card

Hello Ribbon Lovers!  It's Kathy here today with a card that none of us ever wants to have to make.  I think sympathy or condolence cards call for extra soft colors and textures.  Sadly, I recently had to make one of these for a friend who lost a dear family member.  There's nothing like a hand made card to say, "I'm thinking about you, and I care."

I just love the way this Pink Center Stitch Burlap Ribbon adds soft texture to this sympathy card.  Tying a thicker ribbon like this is so much easier when using the Zutter Bow-it-All ToolIvory burlap string adds just the right finishing touch beneath the vintage button on the right.

I created this 5" x 6" cutaway card with one strip of 12" wide x 6" wide paper.  By scoring the paper at 4" and 8.75" I was able to create a cutaway front card with an inside pocket.

To make the pocket, simply add a punched edge on the outer edge.  Then glue only the top and bottom flaps to the card base.

This pretty tag is topped with more of the Pink Burlap Center Stitch Ribbon.  I've also tucked in a tea bag and a honey stick for good measure.

I hope I've shared some ideas you can use in your own crafty adventures!  I'd love to hear from you in the comment section below.

So Very Blessed Planner Spread with Ribbon Tassel

Hi friends! Linsey here today sharing my latest planner spread for November! This month is filled to the brim with so many good things and I'm feeling the blessings of them all! I have been enjoying putting together my monthly planner spreads and making a matching ribbon tassel to go along with each month. This month's spread features lots of things that evoke gratitude and love. I hope you like it!
I used my Clover planner, which I love for just about every single month and I used papers, die cuts and stickers from the Vintage Blessings collection. I made a cute baked pie planner clip and mini flower and lace planner clips. I also added some cute accents in the pockets off to the side, including a couple burlap tags, ticket tabs and more planner clips. Now, on to my favorite part of making my planner pages, my handmade ribbon tassel charm!
I love the November Ribbon Club Assortment-Country Holiday Collection so much and used several strips of ribbons from this collection for my tassel. Specifically, I used a strip each of: 3/8" Plaid Raspberry Swirl, Diamond Satin Amethyst, 3/8" Soft Pine Satin with Gold Metallic Edges, Mineral Ice Delicate Stitched Satin, 5/8" Tulip Taffeta Ribbon, 3/8" Vanilla Satin with Gold Metallic Edges, 3/8" White Ric Rac, Lyndsey White Crochet Lace and Debra Natural Crochet Lace. This ribbon assortment is so great for this month and will also take you right through December and the New Year with all the lovely colors! Love the value with the Ribbon Club Assortments
Thanks so much for stopping by today and letting me share my November planner spread with you! I hope you're inspired to add some ribbon to your planner, too! As always, happy crafting!

Merry Christmas

Hello Crafty Friends and Tuesday to you all!
Today's card was created for Really Reasonable Ribbon. using the Country Holiday Ribbon , Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from this months Ribbon Collection. I have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the ribbons in this months assortment, but then again I love every months assortment so that is an easy one :) I chose the blue as it goes perfectly with my card for today.

Stamps and design paper are all from the Scandinavian Holiday set from Club scrap. I did stamp the deer, Merry Christmas and snowflakes from the stamp set. Next the design paper was cut from the 12 x 12 sheet of design paper. Back blue card stock was stamped using a blue ink and snowflake stamp. I added some embellishments and beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon in a Delicate Stitch blue ribbon.
I love how simple this card turned out, and normally I love a lot of layers and such, but for this one I tried to keep it simple, and for me this is simple, kinda clean and simple....hehehehee

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies:
Delicate Stitched Ribbon
Covered Buttons
Foam Tabs
Foam Tabs thin

Other Supplies used:
Blue thread for sewing
hot glue gun
Brown ink
White Gel pen

Blessed Mini Wood Pallet

Hi friends and happy weekend to you! Linsey here and my apologies for my project being late today! With the holidays coming up ever so quickly, I've switched to fall and winter mode with my crafting lately. Today I have a miniature piece of home/office d├ęcor that will spruce up an area and bring some warmth. I sure hope you like it and find a bit of inspiration in it!
I started with a miniature wood pallet and covered it with paper from the Vintage Blessings collection by Simple Stories. I used several stickers to decorate the front and create a little home scene. Then I added a few WOC Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms in White and Two-Tone Pink. Finally, I added some of the super beautiful ribbons from the November Ribbon Club Assortment to complete the piece. I used the 3/8" Satin with Gold Metallic Edges Vanilla for the bow and 3/8" Plaid Ribbon Raspberry Swirl tied to the tree. Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek! I hope you have a great rest of the weekend and happy crafting!

Really Reasonable Ribbon and Gracielle Design

Hello, everyone!  Thanks for shopping by today.  Karen Letchworth sharing today with a card I created using some fabulous products from Really Reasonable Ribbon along with some sweet new images from Gracielle Design.  The base of my card is a green corrugated cardboard that I sprinkled with "snow" on the edges.  This "snow" is actually just crumbled styrofoam.  I printed two of the images from the new Winter Blessings Stamp Set from Gracielle Design (Pinecone and Pine Branch) and layered them in the upper right-hand corner of my card by using a fabulous Adhesive called Scor-Tape.  I tucked in a piece of Red Grosgrain Chevron Striped Twill and a length of Silver Metallic Twine to give the card some great texture and personality (which ribbons and trims always do).  The final touch was adding pieces from Red Craft Bead Berry Spray Clusters.   I also printed a sentiment from the lovely Winter Blessings Stamp Set.
There are so many FABULOUS ribbons, trims, twines, laces, as well as Embellishments and more at Really Reasonable Ribbon to help you create something AMAZING!  And Gracielle Design has so many great stamp sets to help get your creativity flowing.  They're a great combination!
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you will visit again tomorrow (and every day) for more wonderful inspiration, special promotions, and lots of fun.  We always enjoy your visits!

Winter Blessings,

Christmas Poinsettias with Graciellie Design and Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, it is Gloria with you today, in a rare appearance on the RRR Blog! You usually only see me for the monthly hop! I am very happy to be able to bring you a special Christmas card post today! The team from Really Reasonable Ribbon has paired up with Graciellie Design, and we had an opportunity to play with the wonderful digital stamps and digital papers from Graciellie Design.

I used some digital papers and sentiment stamps from the Christmas Poinsettias Set from Graciellie Design and ribbon from the RRR November Ribbon Club Assortment, plus some hoarded ribbon from one of the past ribbon club assortments (5/8" Christmas Tradition Plaid Ribbon)!
I have used Graciellie Design images before, so it was such a treat to get a chance to use them again. This set has a lovely flower image and FOUR beautiful sentiments.
As a bonus, I also got a chance to use the stunningly beautiful papers in the Holiday Traditions Digital Paper Pack.
I created a top-fold 6" x 6" card to showcase, not only the papers and sentiment, but also the ribbon bouquet. I printed the digital papers at 8" x 8" onto on off-white cardstock. I do not have a 12" x 12" printer, so I always print my papers at 8" x 8" as it makes the prints the perfect size for card making. 
I printed the sentiment with black ink and then cut it out with an oval die. I backed the sentiment with a decorative oval cut from gold cardstock.

For the ribbon bouquet, I first wrapped a length of the 5/8" Christmas Tradition Plaid Ribbon around the card. Then, I tied a loopy bow from the 3/8" Vanilla Satin with Gold Metallic Edges, which is part of the November Ribbon Club Assortment, and glued it to the card. I created a larger bow from the plaid ribbon and glued it just above the satin bow. 
I glued a charm, a few bells, and a tiny pine cone to the top of the ribbon. I also tucked in some gold ball garland and one of the Red Spiral Stamens into the top of the bow.
I topped the sentiment with some Christmas-y enamel dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Be sure to stop back each day to see some new ideas and inspiration featuring ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and digital stamps and papers from Graciellie Design.

Happy Crafting,

Rejoice & Be Thankful Christmas Card

Hello ribbon lovers!  Have you started making your Christmas cards this year?  It is easy to create beautiful cards with Graciellie Digital Designs and embellish them with Really Reasonable Ribbon products.
 For this easy card, I printed out several of the papers in the Holiday Traditions digital pack and Cheery Christmas stamps.  I colored in the sweet wreath using colored pencils.
This was a fun and easy card to complete.  Hoping this inspires you to create some handmade Christmas cards to give.

Winter Blessings with Gracielle Design and Country Holiday Ribbons

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Have you started working on your Christmas card list yet?  If not, maybe this vintage style Winter Blessings Christmas Card made with digital stamps and papers from Gracielle Design and RRR Country Holiday Ribbons will get your creative wheels turning.

I chose to work with the Winter Blessings Digital Stamp Set and the Holiday Tradtions Digital Paper Pack from Gracielle Design.  These pretty papers pair up perfectly with Cream Satin/Turftan Swirl ribbon from the November Ribbon Club Collection.  For a little extra holiday sparkle, I topped the bow with metallic gold string.

I printed the Christmas Bells paper to measure 6" square, then trimmed to 5.75" so I could double mat it on this 6" square card base.  After heat setting the ink on the sentiment (this prevents the ink from running)  I added some color with Distress Inks.  Next, I matted it on green metallic foil papers and added my ribbon and embellishments.

Here's a peek at the inside of the card.

To dress up the sentiment panel, I wrapped it with Vanilla Satin/Gold Metallic Edge ribbon and tied a simple square knot.  You could easily use this simple design on the interior as a card front if desired.

I always seem to wait until the last minute to get my Christmas cards done.  Often then don't get mailed until after the holiday!  Shame on me!  I'm going to try to get things done in a more timely fashion this year...but don't hold your breath!  LOL

Thanks for stopping by!
