"Winter's Night" Card and a Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop!



Hi Everyone!

It's the 13th of the month so it's time for another Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings blog hop!


If you found your way here from Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings, you are in the right place!
If you just happened on to my blog, head on back there, because that it where it all starts! :)
You don't want to miss any of the awesome projects the girls have created for your viewing pleasure...or a chance at a great prize from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

This month's Ribbon Club kit has lots of beautiful white ribbons in it. The cool thing about this set is it is great for all of those winter cards, they will work wonderfully into Valentine's day and then you can use them on pastel spring cards. You can always color them to match your cardstock too. I always keep lots of white on hand for that reason!

I broke out with a Flourishes "Forest of Trees" stamp set to create today's card.


I stamped the trees in black, punched a small circle to use as a mask for the moon then used several shades of Ranger's Archival inks in blue to fade in my night sky. I then added a little acrylic paint, and some chunky "snow" glitter and Stickles. I used some Ranger Liquid Pearls and the embellishment de resistance is the pretty white bow and ribbon from RRR December's Monthly Club kit.

The cardstock is Soot, Navy Twill, and Brilliant White from Discount Card Stock.
It was all put together with Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.

If you aren't a ribbon club member, now would be a great time to sign up!
You get automatic shipments of 10-15 yards of assorted beautiful ribbons for just $9.00 domestic and $11.50 international!
You can also give your favorite crafter the gift that keeps on giving by purchasing a GIFT Subscription to the  ribbon club for 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months! It's a super idea and your friends will LOVE you for it! :)

This is what the entire December club kit looks like...

Bonnie will be giving away an December Ribbon Monthly Club kit to a random commentor so please make sure and comment on all of the girl's projects to increase your chances of winning!


Your next stop on the hop is Judy's joyful blog. You're gonna love it! :)
Thanks so much for dropping by today!
Hugs,
True :D
