The Really Reasonable Ribbon and The Rubber Cafe' Blog Hop


Hello blogging friends! Today, is the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop for the month of April. We have a special treat for the April Blog Hop---the RRR Design Team Members & Special Event Design Team Members will be teaming up with the Design Team Members from The Rubber Cafe'! We will be showcasing the April Ribbon Club Assortment and other Ribbons and Trims from RRR and Rubber Stamps, Glue, Glitter and other Crafty Supplies from TRC.

There will be two prizes offered on the blog hop--one will be on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and the other one will be on The Rubber Cafe' Blog. The prizes are both an approximate value of $20 each. Comments are encouraged on all of the stops but, the prizes will be randomly selected from the two company blogs.


This month there is a beautiful assortment of Pastel Ribbons included in the April Ribbon Club Assortment Click HERE for more details.

If you are following the order of the blog hop you should have just come from Rita's Blog. If not and you just happened to pop in for a visit please click HERE to start the blog hop at the The Rubber Cafe' Blog.


For my project I created a Shabby Paris wall hanging using the Welcome Spring! April Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I also used several stamp sets, Scrap Happy Sheer Glue, You're So Fine Glitter and Pearls from The Rubber Cafe'.


I started with a wood wall hanging piece and I put two coats of Gesso on the wood and then I used Spun Sugar, Milled Lavender and Stormy Sky Distress Inks to add some color. Next I misted the entire piece with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. Then randomly stamped the images from S-114 Vintage Treasures using Pumice Stone Distress Ink.


Here is a close up so you can see the Glimmer Mist.



Next I stamped the image of the corset from the I-981 Be Stylish stamp set with Tuxedo Black ink, added a layer of Gesso and then added some color with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. Then I fussy cut the image and added the ribbon to the backside. I used a hot glue gun and scrunched the ribbon as I was gluing it in place to create a ruffle effect.


Here is a close up of the front so you can see all the pretty ribbon ruffles.


I applied Scrap Happy Sheer Glue to the corset and then I added Diamond Clear Glitter and Pearls. I also added wings to the corset. I used S5-101 Wings Of Hope die templates from Spellbinders to create the wings. Then I added Diamond Clear and Bronze Medal glitter to the wings. I stamped the I-985 Paris Nights Background using Tuxedo Black ink, added Gesso and then same colors of Distress Inks as mentioned above. Then I used S5-077 Labels Twenty-Five to die cut the image and I inked the edges and added glitter to the tower.


I used the pink ribbon to create a flower and added a gold filigree jewelry finding and a pearl to the center.


I applied Scrap Happy Sheer Glue and Diamond Clear Glitter to several paper flowers and leaves from I am Roses.


Then I took the ribbon flower and the paper flowers and made a pretty little cluster down in the bottom corner. I also added a few Pearls.


I tied a piece of the pink ribbon to the top for a hanger and then I added more pink, blue and lavender ribbons.
