Really Reasonable Ribbon Guest Designer!

Today I have the pleasure of being the Really Reasonable Ribbon Guest Designer! I've had a chance to do some work for Bonnie in the past, and it's always a pleasure. Besides, who doesn't love AMAZING ribbon at wonderful prices?! Check out the Website to see what I mean!

I created four projects for my guest spot. I will show you two here on my blog, and two on the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog. What a deal for you! It's like a mini blog hop!

Here is my first project, using that little witch that I purchased last year! She's still cute!

I colored the image with Copics, and then matched her up with some fun Halloween papers from Fancy Pants, Echo Park, and Teresa Collins. I love mixing and matching papers from various companies!

I love layers, so I used two different ribbons: the orange is from the Autumn Diamond Satin Assortment and the black is Totally Twill. I used the Bow Easy Tool to tie my bow. I have a hard time making my ribbon tails fall properly, but the Bow Easy makes a perfect bow every time! That was the best $4.99 I ever spent!

Do you see those fantastic "brads"? Well, they are really made from paper and are a product called Candi, from CraftWork Cards! This color is called Mr. & Mrs. You attach the paper brads with foam tape called Candi Fix.

For my next card, I went with a Christmas theme, using My Mind's Eye papers and a Flourishes stamp. Colored with Copics, of course! This time I used Candi called Choc-a-Mocha. Yum!

The yummy ribbon is Burgundy 1" Satin with Grosgrain Edge. This ribbon is beautiful and the color matches the paper perfectly!

I decided to tie a knot this time, rather than a bow, to keep that informal and rustic look going.

I hope you enjoyed my Guest Spot at Really Reasonable Ribbon! If you think you can stand to see more...check out these peeks of two cards that I am showing on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog!
