Really Reasonable Ribbon February 2021 Blog Hop

Stamperia Hortensia Framed Card Reneabouquets Beautiful Board by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Orchid Floral Fantasy Card for the Really Reasonable Ribbon February 2021 Blog Hop

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon February 2021 Blog Hop!  You should be coming here from Ginny’s amazing blog.  Today’s Orchid Floral Fantasy Card is brought to you by the February 2021 Ribbon Club Assortment.

How much do we love this Pastel Stash Builder Assortment?  So many colors to choose from!  The Light Orchid Checkerboard Satin and 3/8″ Purple Plaid Ribbons   caught my eye right away. That’s because I’ve been itching to play with these new Stamperia Papers!

Orchid Floral Fantasy Card

Nothing makes me happier than having a perfect ribbon color match for a card!  Here are some tips and tricks I used while making this card.

  • First, create a 5″ x 7″ top fold card base from orchid cardstock.
  • Next, mat a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ panel of floral design paper from Stamperia Hortensia on purple and white cardstock.
  • Now fussy cut the image of the lady from the paper pack.  Back with a double layer of dimensionals to make the image pop off the page.
  • Then cut a post card from the paper collection.  Adhere the image to the postcard and add to the card base.
  • Frame the image with a Reneabouquet’s Lavendar Lilac Heart Frame.
  • Now tie a triple loop bow with Light Orchid Satin Ribbon.  Adhere in the corner of the heart frame.  Top with a loopy iridescent string bow.

Next you just need to scatter flowers and butterflies everywhere.

A little snipped of Purple Plaid ribbon is the perfect finishing touch.

A Peek Inside

Use more Light Orchid Satin Ribbon inside the card as a closure for the flap element.

Tie a little journaling tag on with a bit of Purple Plaid Ribbon.

Now you’ve got room to add photos inside the card, which turns it into a sort of folio.

Fill a pocket with a note card and little treats and your work is done!

On With the Hop

Now hop on over and see what paper pretties Cheryl has in store for you.   Then be sure to finish up over on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog so you can answer Bonnie’s question of the month.  Your name will be entered in the drawing to win your very own February Ribbon Club Assortment.

Meowy Christmas Shaker Card

Meowy Christmas Shaker Card Stamperia Make a Wish Reneabouquets Printed Beautiful Board by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Meowy Christmas Shaker Card

Hello, Friends!  This whimsical little Meowy Christmas Shaker Card features Stamperia’s Make a Wish Paper Collection and some lovely goodies from Reneabouquets. I made it for our sweet next door neighbors who are cat parents.  Their kitties are featured regularly on Instagram, so I thought they should be represented on their Christmas card this year.

This is a pretty basic 5″ x 7″ top fold card with a kraft cardstock base.  Machine stitch around the maid paper panel.  Add a decorative stitch on the border accent and you are half way home.  Back a Reneabouquets Holly Berry Wreath with clear cardstock and foam tape, fill it with a mix of buttons, beads and sequins and that job is done, too. Die cut the cant directly from the paper pad using a circle die.  Then center it and adhere on the back of the wreath.

Heat emboss the chipboard sentiment with Antique Gold Embossing Enamel.  Then adhere it in the center of a really big Prima blossom.  Tuck in a pretty organza bow, some Christmas Greenery and holly leaves.  The vintage wooden candy cane came from a booth at a local flea market.  I wish I had a hundred of these sweet embellishments but, alas, this was the very last one in my stash.

A Peek Inside

Finish the card with a designer paper panel and a pocket, of course!

Then tuck in a couple of chocolate snowmen and a little note card.  There’s something joyous about these vibrant, non-traditional papers that speaks to my love of color, pattern and design.  And above all, it was fun to make!

Right now I’m working on the next Button Farm Club Card Kit, which will be released next week.  So if I’m a little bit absent, you will know it is because I am busy at my work desk, editing photos, making video tutorials and writing out directions for that project.  I can’t wait to show you what I’m up to!

Friday is the date for the very last Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop of 2020!  And after that I will be doing a year-end round up of my favorite projects from 2020.  This tough old year is waning, and a bright New Year is on the horizon.  That is something to celebrate!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

Would You Like to Build a Snowman Shaker Card

Stamperia Traditional Christmas Snowman Shaker Card Reneabouquets Beautiful Board by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

Really Reasonable Ribbon December Blog Hop: Snowman Shaker Card

Hello, Friends!  Don’t you just love this Snowman Shaker Card?  It’s my inspiration piece for the Really Reasonable Ribbon December Blog Hop.  Welcome to the hop!  You should be coming here from Ginny’s gorgeous blog.  The Winter Woodland Ribbon Assortment is extra gorgeous this month.  I liked them all so much that I ended up using three selections on this sweet Snowman Shaker Card.  Take a peek:

Would You Like to Build a Snowman Shaker Card?

This 5″ x 7″ top fold shaker card is basically one layer of Stamperia’s Classic Christmas paper layered with ribbons and topped with a Reneabouquets Snowflake Frame and Beautiful Board.  Here’s how to build the card front:

  • First, create a 5″ x 7″ top fold card base from kraft cardstock.
  • Then machine stitch a 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ panel of Stamperia paper to a slightly larger panel of deep red cardstock.
  • Place 1/2″ Scor-tape along the bottom edge of this panel, then adhere Sherry Diamond Satin Ribbon over it.
  • Next, place a 1/4″ strip of Scor-tape in the center of the Sherry Diamond Satin Ribbon and adhere a strip of the 3/8″ Bird Print Satin over it.
  • Now heat emboss the Reneabouquets Decorative Snowflake Frame with WOW! Dazzling Diamonds Embossing Powder.
  • Then die cut a circle from clear cardstock and adhere to the back of the frame.
  • Next, place 3 rows of 1/8″ foam strips on the back of the frame.
  • Place your sequin mix in the area where you plan to adhere the frame.  Then remove the tape liner and press the frame in place.
  • Place foam tape on the back of Jack’s Snowman Beautiful Board and adhere to the shaker frame.
The Bow Cluster

Use your Zutter Bow-it-All Tool to tie a 3″ double loop bow from Sherry Diamond Satin Ribbon.  Adhere in the left hand corner of the snowflake frame.  Tie jingle bells together with White Iridescent Metallic string and adhere to the knot of the bow.  Then tie a double loop bow with the string and adhere over it.  Top with a poinsettia and holly leaves.

Finish the card by adhering a chipboard sentiment over the ribbon border.  Then adhere flat back pearls around the snowflake frame.

A Peek Inside

I was on the tail end of this pretty paper collection, so I had to do some creative paper piecing inside this card.  This led to a new style of pocket on the top and a layered pocket flap on the bottom.

Here’s a look at the goodies inside this pretty card.

On With the Hop!

Now hop on over and see what paper pretties Cheryl has in store for you.   Be sure to visit all the blogs in the hop, then pop on over to the RRR Blog to answer Bonnie’s question of the month. One lucky comment will be randomly chosen to receive a free Winter Woodland Ribbon Club Assortment.

Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Card

Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Card by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Card

Hello, Friends!  Evergreens take center stage on this Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Card.  Is there anything more beautiful than snow covered pine branches?  Or anything more fragrant than freshly cut pine boughs?  I think not.

Stamperia Winter Botanic Card by Kathy Clement Photo 01

I’ve adorned this 5″ x 7″ card folio with luxurious satin ribbons from the Really Reasonable Ribbon December Club Assortment.

Tan Checkerboard Satin Ribbon adds elegance to this Winter Botanic Paper from Stamperia.

TIP: Layer 3/8″ Pine Cone Satin Ribbon over 1/2″ Brown/Cream Tartan Plaid ribbon to add another layer of texture and pattern to the card design.

TIP: Create dimension, texture and shine with a snowflake ornament layer behind the focal image.  Heat emboss a chipboard snowflake with Antique Gold Embossing Enamel. Then cut the snowflake in half and use as a border along the right hand side of the card.

A bit of Natural Burlap String adds rustic charm to the pine cone baubles suspended from the sentiment stick.

A Peek Inside

What do you do when designer paper features a gorgeous wintry scene that is too wide for your card base?

Score in a flap!  Now you can see the entire scene.  Plus you can use the flap as a hiding spot for a chocolate treat!

Create a little gift card wallet from your scraps.  It tucks perfectly into the pocket along with a journal card from the paper collection.  Add a photo or a personal note to the back side of the journal card.

Many of us are mailing gifts this year.  This little gift card wallet makes the presentation really special.

I hope I’ve shared some trips, tricks and ideas that you can use in your next crafty adventure.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
