with sympathy for Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop


Hey everybody! It's time for another Really Reasonable Ribbon blog hop! OMGosh, you are in for a real treat! The design team has been busy creating projects using ribbon and/or trim from the March Ribbon Club Assortment, the Welcome Spring Collection, and it is some of the yummiest ribbon ever!


If you are hopping with us, you should have arrived here from the uber talented Kathy's blog. If not, then you might want to head over to the RRR blog to start from the beginning. Trust me... you don't want to miss a thing! :)

I created a sympathy card using the beautiful Hyacinth Double Faced Satin Ribbon from the March Ribbon Club Assortment. The ribbon styles and colors in this assortment lend themselves to so many different kinds of projects. I had the purple grass cloth cardstock and Prima paper stack out for another project and flipped through the paper stack just for giggles. When I saw this particular paper, I knew exactly what I was going to do. These birds are so serene and calm, and the color palette is perfect. I have just the right border stamp for the front and sentiment for the inside. Sympathy cards are generally not easy cards to make but this one kind of made itself and with very few supplies.


I created this double loop bow with two sets of tails with my Bow-it-All v2.0. I wanted a pretty bow that stands out but didn't want it to obscure the images on this paper.


For the inside, I used a floral scrap from the same paper stack and layered the panel on the purple grass cloth cardstock. This is probably one of my favorite sympathy sentiments from Stampin' Up!


Your next stop on the hop is the lovely Cherry's blog! Be sure to leave some love on all the blogs as you hop... everyone loves and appreciates comments! And when you reach the end of the hop (back at the RRR blog) leave a comment on the blog hop post answering the Question of the Month for your chance to WIN the March Ribbon Club Assortment! :)
