Happy Hellos Card

Hello crafty friends and Happy Friday to you all!
Today's Sweet Happy Hellos Kitty card was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon along with the beautiful flowers that RRR carries. Love all the different flowers mixed on my card for today. I had fun creating this sweet kitty card with the 3 layers and the bows.

On my card I chose to use the sweetheart blossoms, mini sweetheart blossoms, rose bud in pink, and the carnation flower. I love the mix of colors.  Sometimes it's hard to choose which ones to use, but this time I just went for it....heheehe

The bows were made using the Light Coral Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and then I also used the 3-D foam squares, and Scotch Refill ATG tape to put my card and layers together.

The dies are all from Cheery Lynn, and I love using these!
The stamp is SU!, it's a oldie but goody.....hehehee

And lastly I added some sewing to each layer.

A Perfect Day Shaker Tag Magnet

Hello there friends and happy Thursday to all of you! Today I'm not sharing a card. No really. I actually made a magnet. Well I didn't make the magnet...I just glued stuff to it. And by stuff I mean a lot of stuff...and a shaker.
Isn't this the sweetest collection? It's Miss Betty and I love it so much! Also the inside is a shaker so that's more funner.

 I added some pretty vintagy lace to the bottom of the tag for an extra grandma chic touch.

The perfect chevron bow to coordinate with the die cut flowers.
The back has a magnet so this sweet little tag can be used on the fridge to hang up the coupons and school pics and other important necessities.
Really Reasonable  Ribbon~ Chevron Striped Twill in Pink, Ivory Burlap String, Arianna Natural Crochet Lace.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day :  ) G

The patterned papers and journalling card are from a line called Spring Market by Carta Bella, and I just love them.  As always, when I go to Really Reasonable Ribbon, I can find all the perfect ribbons, trims and Embellishments to adorn this line.  Because Really Reasonable Ribbon carries such an amazing assortment of everything, you will never struggle to find the perfect colors to match any line you're working with.  That makes it so much easier....they really have every color and every style.  I kid you not.
This sweet little card was machine stitched and inked.  I added a couple of Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms from the Mixed Pinks collection to the top of my card (on the wooden piece).  At the bottom left of my card, I added a sweet little bow that includes Black Seam Binding, Olive Burlap String, Ivory Burlap String, one 30mm Green and White Mulberry Leaf, one 30mm Green Mulberry Leaf, I tucked in a 11mm White Heart Shaped Flatback Immitation Pearl Accent, and it's all topped with a Pink Sweetheart Blossom.

Love you ribbon combinations for April. I have to say that my favorite vacation activity is anything that includes my family and friends. I had 2 first's last year. My daughter and the girl that share an apartment took me to Branson MO where we shopped celebrated my daughters birthday and saw a show. The next first would be a cruise my girlfriend won a cruise for 2 and asked me to go with her. I had a blast can't wait to go again.


Now if you didn't win, don't worry!! We will be 'hopping' each month so you'll have another chance to win soon! We hope you stop by and visit our blog often.

Blessed Beyond Measure Ribbon Necklace

Adding a pretty ribbon and lace chain to your favorite pendent is easy using Really Reasonable Ribbons.  This soldered pendent is near and dear to me because the sweet girl is my mom as a child.  
 I combined the Tan Leather Seam Binding and the Debra Natural Crochet Lace to form the chain of the necklace. 
I choose the cream tones, but why not grab a few ribbon and lace choices and mix and match with your outfit?  Every time I wear this necklace, I am reminded that I am blessed beyond measure that the Mom God blessed me with.

Wishing you a creative day, dear friends.

What's the Buzz? Queen Bee Mixed Media Card

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Spring must well and truly be coming, because I spotted my first buzzing bumblebee yesterday! He was just hanging out on the deck, catching some rays.  It did my heart good to see him, and it also inspired me to make this Queen Bee Mixed Media Card with beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon.


I happen to love bees, so any time I see bee themed crafting goodies, they have a tendency to wind up in the Closet of Shame. This 5" x 7" mixed media card features a digital image from our very own Ginny along with some bee themed papers I found a while back. 


Maize Taffeta Ribbon and 3/8" Black Quatrefoil Print Satin add just the right pop of color and texture to this collage.



Pockets filled with sweet treat can be found inside the card.


I've topped this Staples Square tag with more of the Black Quatrefoil Print Satin ribbon, Burlap String Bow and some sweet WOC Open Roses. Crocheted lace adds another textural element to this mixed media collage tag.


Then I created a little tea wallet to tuck in the upper pocket.  This darling journal card is another digital image from Polly's Paper. 

Here's a great way to use up those little leftover pieces of ribbon.  I've hot glued them under the vintage button!  It adds such a nice finishing touch, and gives a ribbon scrap a new life. And if you're making a bee themed card, you'd better include a honey stick to go with the tea, right?

All this talk of bees and honey and tea has caused me to crave a cuppa!  Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,
kathy
