Stitched Tag w/Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, everyone, and thanks so much for stopping by.  Today I'm sharing a sweet Summer tag that I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  No matter what the project, Really Reasonable Ribbon always has the perfect trims.  And, they carry so much more than just ribbons.  Although, I will say that when it comes to ribbons and trims, they really have it ALL.
I started with cream cardstock and used a cross-stitch die to cut my tag.  I hand cross-stitched the cute little popsicle using various shades of pink and purple DMC floss.  I water colored (painted) some of the background using a pale pink paint, and I splattered (what a mess) some deep purple paint on that.  The reason why I added the paint is because the tag was just too plain without it.

Next, I added some Miniature Pink Sweetheart Blossoms and some Miniature Mixed Purple and Lilac Sweetheart Blossoms to give the tag some texture and beauty.  I also cut a smaller tag, again using the cream cardstock; and I stamped the word HUGS on that in purple ink.  I touched the edges of that tag with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and added another Miniature Purple Sweetheart Blossom to the top of that smaller tag.
At the very top of my tag, I added a bow.  Why not, right?  Bows are SO pretty, and Really Reasonable Ribbon always has the perfect trim in all the perfect colors.  For this sweet bow, I used three different trims including a length of Baby Pink Seam Binding, Dusty Rose Wrinkle Ribbon and Sweet Grape Seam Binding.  There are also lots of great Adhesives, Embellishments and SO much more.  Why not take a moment to stop by Really Reasonable Ribbon and treat yourself to something pretty?  You'll be SO glad you did.

Thanks for visiting, and have a blessed week!

Here's where I'll be linking up my stitched tag to play along:

Dies R Us Challenge Blog - Challenge #151 - Baby It's HOT Outside - When it's hot, we all need a popsicle, right?  This sweet tag uses a cross-stitch die cut as well as a smaller tag (for my sentiment) which is from a Frantic Stamper Tag Die-Cut Trio.
