Hello, all you Ribbon Lovers! It’s Pumpkin Time! And it’s time for the Really Reasonable Ribbon September Blog Hop, too! You should be coming here from Cheryl’s sweet and shabby chic blog. If you get lost along the way, here’s a list to help you get back on track:
Today, the design team is sharing the beautiful creations they’ve made using the September Ribbon Club Assortment. These Haunted Halloween ribbons are perfect for fall crafting: lots of wonderful color, texture and design. Take a look:
Doesn’t this just put you right in the mood for fall crafting? I know it did me! I dug out my Graphic 45 A Place in Time collection and put together this fun little Pumpkin Time card using the wonderful Tangerine Shimmer Satin, Swiss Dot Tangerine and Black dots ribbon and the Black Ric Rac.
This is a 7″ x 5″ top fold card. This card has 4 layers: the base layer with the green polka dots, the pumpkin paper layer and then the post card layer with the focal on top. There is stitching around the edges of each layer. Once my layers were all put together, I ran Tangerine Shimmer Satin up the left hand side of the polka dot layer, tucking the ends under the top and bottom to keep things nice and neat. The black ric rac was layered on top of the Shimmer satin ribbon, and I just love the way it looks.
I lightly sanded the card focal, inked the edges with Vintage Photo, then ran my black ric rac through the holes on either end. I had to add just a touch of Diamond Stickles to the pumpkins and the little boys hat.
I love working with this swiss dot satin ribbon. It is soft and luxurious and makes the most beautiful bows. I tied a triple loop bow with my Zutter Bow-it-All, then layered it with a small rosette and vintage button. It really makes the card feel festive!
I love pumpkins! There’s a pumpkin farm not too far from our house, and I love to drive by it this time of year because it’s full of plump, lazy pumpkins soaking up the sun and dreaming of pumpkin pie!
Since I’m the last stop on the blog, you just need to go back to the RRR BLOG and answer Bonnie’s secret question of the month and then you’ll be entered in the drawing to win your own package of Haunted Halloween Ribbons! Thanks for stopping by! Your visits and your comments make me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers.
Until next time….
