Coffee of the Day - Eggnog, to get in the holiday spirit!
Welcome to my stop on the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog hop! As happens each month, the Design Team shares projects using one or more ribbons from the wonderful monthly ribbon kit. You will most certainly be inspired by all of the lovely projects you will see at each stop. :)
if at any point you get 'lost' along the way, feel free to head back over to the RRR blog for the full blog hop list. be sure to grab a cuppa for the road. tee hee!
you might just have come here by way of GINNY'S most fabulous blog..... doesn't she make the most gorgeous projects?! and she's a sweetie to boot!
when I saw the beautiful ribbons in the kit for this month, I knew I wanted to do something fun for Christmas with them. I decided to make some little tussy mussies using the petal cone die by SU!. this gave me a chance to not only use almost every ribbon in the kit, but to get pretty fussy, fancy, frilly, too! and who doesn't love a little chocolate for the holidays?
flowers and holly leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts. some can be found in the RRR store here. this tussy mussy uses the crochet trim in the kit, Judy, which was sprayed with walnut gold glimmer mist to give it a more vintage and shimmery look. ribbon - crosshatch on gold satin and delicate stitched satin old gold.
papers used for all tussy mussies are from the Basic Grey Juniper Berry collection. ribbon - satin with grosgrain edge light silver and random stars on light silver satin.
each tussy mussy also has tiny doilies on 2 of its sides, which were sprayed with walnut gold glimmer mist. ribbon - delicate stitched satin old gold and diagonal stripes light silver and old gold on satin.
here the white magnolias were dyed to match the paper I was using. very easy to do using an ink refill, marker, or ink pad - whatever you have on hand. :) ribbon - random stars on light silver satin and satin with grosgrain edge light silver.
finally, each tussy mussy has a bit of sparkle compliments of crystals from Prima and beautiful beads which were knotted onto the ends with ribbon. here the gold roses are by Prima. the Judy crochet trim is again dyed with the walnut gold glimmer mist. ribbon - delicate stitched satin old gold and crosshatch on old gold.
