I stamped the images on X-Press Copic Blending Cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored in with Copics. The little snowflake from Hambo Stamps was stamped in Archival White.
I pleated my China Doll silk ribbon below the main panel, and added Spica Glitter pens to the fox's scarf, tail and eyelashes. A little Oyster Baker's Twine and a snowflake charm finish it off.
If you haven't seen all of the beautiful hand-dyed silk ribbon in the RRR Store, click HERE. The texture is so soft and easy to manipulate, and the colors are luscious! For more Baker's Twine colors, including the new SOLIDS, click HERE.
All the farmers around here are saying we are in for a harsh winter with a lot of snow. We got about 7-8 inches in this one storm this week (Draco!) and I hope they are wrong, but if they're not, I want my animal friends to find some warm hangouts for the duration!

If you haven't had the chance to work with silk ribbon I would highly suggest it. It is soft, beautiful, very easy and so very light to work with. Matches so well with any of the lace trims RRR has to offer.

Happy Kitchen Sink Monday!! My card today was totally inspired by this amazing Painted Desert Hand Dyed Silk Ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store! When I looked at it I thought of pretty hydrangeas, so out came the 3 step Hydrangea set from Kitchen Sink Stamps!
The blue flowers were stamped with bashful Blue, Almost Amythyst, and Bordering Blue. Each step for the smaller pink flowers was stamped with Regal Rose. The DP is from Prima, and the gems are from Zva Creative!
Thanks so much for visiting today! Have a great week!

Hello, it's Connie again! My card today uses a few different ribbons from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store! First, the burgundy silk ribbon going across the top of the card, and tied in a bow is actually 1 1/4" wide, but I did not want it that wide for this card, so I placed scor-tape on one side length wise across the ribbon and folded it in half. I then tied a smaller bow with the full 1 1/4" ribbon. Next, I used Moss Green Leaves trim with the small flowers from Zva Creative going across my card. I sure think both help give my card the Victorian touch I was looking for!
The verse on this card is from the newly released Anchor set from Our Daily Bread Designs. The sentiment panel was then distressed with Scattered Straw and Antique Linen distress inks to match the DP, which is from Basic Grey's Curio package.
Thanks so much for visiting! For more projects and cards with ribbons from the RRR store, you can head over to my blog!
Images: Anchor - ODBD
Inks: Firebrick red, Scattered straw and Antique Linen Distress inks.

Hello! This is Connie, and I am here today to show you one of my favorite projects to make, especially for holiday gifts....a luminary for a battery operated tea light!! Before I explain how I made the luminary, I must tell you about the gorgeous ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store that I used at the top of my tag window! This 1 1/4" Ivory Silk ribbon is just to die for! It is so very soft and makes the most beautiful bows! Here I created my bow with a bow easy and attached it to my luminary with scor-tape and a red gem brad!
Now on to creating the luminary! I cut a piece of red card stock 4 1/4" x 11", and scored the piece of card stock in three 2 5/8" intervals, which leaves a small strip at one end. I then stamped the Poinsettia Background image from Our Daily Bread Designs all over the red base.
Next, I cut out the front window with the Tag Die. I then stamped the poinsettia tag image and sentiment from the Poinsettia Tag set on some vellum, and placed it inside of the window crated by the Tag Die. I then punched the top of the luminary with a scalloped punch. To finish off the luminary, I added the beautiful silk ribbon accent!
Thanks so much for visiting today! If you get a chance you can hop on over to my blog for another project with ribbon from RRR!

So many of you have been wanting to see ideas using ribbon on scrapbook pages. For this layout, I used the 1 1/4" Black Silk Ribbon. First I adhered it to the backside of the layout using the Helmar Adhesive Runner. This stuff works wonderfully on ribbons and trim. Then at 1 1/2" intervals, I twisted the ribbon and adhered the "twist" to the layout using the Helmar adhesive runner again. It really gives that little bit of dimension.
Notice all the flowers, chipboard and cutouts on the layout? All adhered using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. if you love having dimension on your projects ladies and gents, this stuff will BLOW YOUR MIND!!! you get to be the judge on what height of dimension you want. I can't tell you how much I love this stuff. Try it, and you will too.
Next I have a little card that I've created using the Stitched Edge Reversible Burgundy/Gold 3/8" ribbon. Such a simple piece of ribbon, but when you add a few pearls, not so plain jane.
Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner for the ribbon and all of the layers of paper. Can you guess how I got all the different layers of dimension? If you guessed Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots, you are right on the money. For $5.49, you are going to find adhesive HEAVEN in a tube I tell ya.
Thanks so much for stopping by the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog today. Try some great ribbon and pair it up with Helmar Adhesive. You will LOVE the outcome.
PS- If you love dimensional dots, try the Helmar Zapdots. Available in 2 shapes, 2 sizes and 3 colors. A dimensional dot for every use.
