Really Reasonable Ribbon March Blog Hop!

RRRBlogHop

Welcome to the March 2014 Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop! I am excited that you are joining us to get lots of inspirations using the March Ribbon Club Assortments. This month’s assortment is filled with soft, light and fun spring colors that would match perfectly with your projects! If you are hopping in the order, you probably came from Bonnie’s Blog at Make Time 2 Craft.

First project I am featuring is this thank you card using the Tiffany White Crochet Lace Ribbon from the assortment. I love how delicate and elegant this ribbon is – check out the wonderful patterned on the ribbon. Since the ribbon is white, I wanted to place a background paper with lots of colors to pop out the ribbon. You can also add colors to the ribbon using color mists, sprays, chalks, pastels, paints, etc. The possibilities are limitless!

I added couple of purple sequins as an accent for the card – to add more dimensions I used glossy accents on top of the sequins to make it more fun. Strong accents can help out the white ribbon to stand out even better.

Next card definitely has some spring feeling to it. Don’t you think so?  I wanted to showcase the Diamond Satin Rose Pink Ribbon so I kept the rest of the card pretty soft and subtle. This ribbon will also be perfect for baby girl, wedding, mother’s day, or Easter. I kept the card pretty simple and used white as a base. I love the fact that the card has this really soft feeling.

One of the fun way to match the ribbon is by using some subtle water-coloring on a card. I used couple of distress markers on the stamped images and added little bit of water to create a soft blended look. I thought these images would match the ribbon perfectly.
