If not, you can join us for some autumn inspiration with the gorgeous October RRR Ribbon Club Assortment by hopping on over to the RRR Blog to start at the beginning. There you will find all the blog hop and prize details.
Just look at the gorgeous ribbons in this month's RRR Ribbon Club Assortment! It's time to start thinking about Christmas projects and cards. These holiday ribbons in nontraditional colors are perfect to get those holiday projects going! Are you a Ribbon Club Subscriber? If not, you can sign up here and start receiving one of these gorgeous assortments each month.
Yes, in my typical style, I decided "not" to create a Christmas project. Of course these collections are so versatile, they can be used a lot of different ways. This is an anniversary card for our son and his wife who will be celebrating their second anniversary soon.
Tips and Techniques:
The October Ribbon Club Shimmer Turquoise ribbon was a little bright for these Donna Salazar Spring in Bloom papers, so I misted it with Cork Glimmer Mist. Here's a tip for transforming your ribbons with mist. Trim off a small piece of the ribbon and spritz it with mist, then allow to dry to see if you've achieved the desired color. I created this triple loop bow using Ginny's Double Loop Bow Tutorial found here. Bonnie is now selling the Zutter Bow-it-All which makes very fast work of gorgeous bows.
I just adore the sweet Wild Orchid Crafts Mulberry Flowers in the RRR Store. Here I've used a 25mm Cottage Rose in Mixed Purple/Lilac. I added a berry sprig and raffia from my stash. The sweet Catherine White Crochet Lace is part of the October Ribbon Club Assortment.
I also the Double Faced Light Silver Ribbon and White Lace from the October Ribbon Club Assortment as a border here on the inside of my card. I just adore how the silver ribbon plays off the other colors in the papers!
I printed the Happy Anniversary sentiment using Chopin Script Font from the internet. I then stamped the heart flourish around the printed sentiment. (I did size the sentiment to fit the stamp.)
I was inspired by the beautiful work of Andrea Ewen.
