Guest Design Love Battlefield with Really Reasonable Ribbon



I'm only sharing some sneak peaks with you today her on my blog but the entire project is at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog for their lovely followers to see!  Why not pop over and check it out!


Hi Ribbon lovers!  I'm Tammy Louise and I was asked to be the February Guest Designer for Bonnie and the Really Reasonable Ribbon team!  I'm so excited and honored to be here for the entire month!  Thank you Bonnie, I'm having the best time with these lovely ribbons!  Today is my first opportunity to work with a NEW card and envelope template I received this Christmas. 
 
I love cards that aren't square or rectangle.  Trying something new is always high on my list as well as it keeps the crafty juju flowing!  Here is the templates used in today's project:



This is such an easy template to follow and after embossing the card and envelope to match with the "Doodle Hearts" folder from The Paper Studio, I brushed some Ranger Distress ink in "Antique linen" and stamped with "Vintage Photo" ink using a Craftsmart heart stamp over the hearts so they would POP more and it would create depth in this somewhat more simple design.


The template has a design on the card that I decided to cut out from Kraft paper and wrap it in Red w/ Grossgrain White Stitched edge ribbon to give the design some texture.  I placed a glittery hand cut heart at the top of the "battlefield" and a beautiful bow adorned with a slider and button at the bottom.  The contrasting colors, red,White w/ Red Stitched Edge GrossgrainBlack Jute ribbon and the thin 1/8th inch diagonal Stripe Ribbon in Black make this elegant and eccentric at the same time.  


I developed it into a LOVELY card with the heartfelt sentiment "Love Postage Stamp"and "The Fun Life Tickets"from Raindrop Echo Designs and created a banner by hand to coordinate the envelope to match.  





My favorite part of this project is the beautiful bright red ribbon with stitches and the black Jute ribbon behind it all giving it a wonderfully textured background.  


Extra Embellishments:  Kaisercraft Sparkle Crystals
Prima "Romance Novel" Wooden buttons
Ranger Distress Ink "Black Soot" around edges of card
Slider from Whimsy Stamps Store
Kaiser craft pearl altered w/Copic



Well, that's all for me today, I hope you enjoyed the "out of the ordinary" but easy to create project and rest assured I will be returning throughout the month with several other projects created with the lovely ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon Store.


Hugs and See you soon!

 INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
You may say I'm a dreamer, 
but I'm not the only one. 
I hope someday you'll join us.
And the world will live as one.    John Lennon
