Hope


Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon July Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Ginny's blog, you are in the right place! If you just happened along, be sure to start at the beginning at the RRR Blog (I am the fourth stop, so you don't have far back to go!) so you don't miss out on the awesome projects, fun news, and a prize from Really Reasonable Ribbon!
Our hop goes live at 6:30 AM Central.

Each 13th of the month it's the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog hop where we highlight the Ribbon Club! I LOVE Bonnie's choices for the July ribbon club package. If you really love ribbon and would like to have a wonderful assortment of ribbons sent to you automatically each month, just join the Really Reasonable Ribbon Club! Monthly ribbon club assortments are selected and pre-packed to reflect a specific theme, color, or holiday season. The assortments vary from month to month, but an average assortment has 5-9 different ribbon styles and consists of 10-15 yards of ribbon.  You will love it! Take a peek:
The color combo in the Club package this month is one of my favorite color combinations. Pink and purple ROCK! Pink is my favorite color!! But -- I decided to stretch myself and NOT make a pink card (those will come later in the month!) and show one from a new technique I learned this past weekend in Texas.
I used the beautiful 3/8" Diamond Hyacinth Ribbon in the July Club package and created a double looped bow with my Bow-it-All for my CAS design. The goose and sentiment (Watercolor Words/SU!) were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I outlined parts of the goose with an Elegant Writer Pen, and then added water with an aqua brush. As you pull the color out, it turns blue and then light pink - all from adding a little black pen! I love this technique! 
I jazzed up the background a little with marbled paper and a little strip of Dazzling Diamonds Paper (both SU!) under the main panel.

Now off to Cheryl's blog, where you will have a feast for the eyes!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi Judy!
I came by to take a closer look at your pink and purple card for the challenge that started today, but I don't see that one. I love that cute sentiment. Your cards are always adorable, and I really hope that you will swing by and link up with us at Word Art Wednesday. I always love having you play along. Have a blessed week!
