Really Reasonable Ribbon and The Rubber Cafe' Blog Hop!

Welcome and thanks for joining us in the Really Reasonable Ribbon and The Rubber Cafe' blog hop!


If you're following along, in order you probably got here through Dawn's blog.  If you get lost along the way, the Blog Hop started at The Rubber Cafe' Blog here


For the Blog hop today, I am using one of my favorite Stamps set "Through the Window" from the The Rubber Cafe'.




I wanted to showcase my ribbon wreathe I wove using Satin Grossgrain edge ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I love this ribbon as it's beautiful from either side.  This particular ribbon is 7/8 " inch wide, so as I was weaving I folded it in half to make my wreathe.  I really love the warm color of this and how it finishes my card beautifully.


To pull my card together I used the Easel card and on the base, I cut and embossed my ribbon banner label using Spellbinder's Ribbon Banners die also available in the The Rubber Cafe' store.  I stamped part of my phrase using The Rubber Cafe's "Sweet" stampset, and wrote the word 'Home' on each of my houses.  These are acrylic, which I backed with paper and used Glossy Accents to adhere to the acrylic frame.  Here's a side view of my card so you can see the easel fold.

That's it for me, and thanks for hopping by, head on over next and see what my BFF Gloria, has in store for you - she's super talented so get ready to be amazed!.  


Supplies:
Stamps:  Through the Window, and Sweet stampsets, The Rubber Cafe'
Embellishments: 7/8" wide Satin Grosgrain edge ribbon from Really Reasonably Ribbon; acrylic houses from Maya Roads.
Paper: 140 # Water color Paper
Ink:  Memento Cocoa, Ranger Antique Linen, Old Paper Distress Inks
Dies: Tim Holt'z Vintage Cabinet dies by Sizzix, Ribbon Banners labels by Spellbinders
Adhesives: glue dots
