Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop Shabby Chic Christmas Mitten Ornament & Tags

Hello Friends!!
I am so excited to be participating in the
Hopefully you are visiting me from Jessie's Blog. 
If you are just joining the blog hop, then you will want to start at the 
Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.
That way you can see what you can win, and not miss out on any of the Design Team's fabulous creations using this month's
Really Reasonable Ribbon Assortment!!
Here is a photo of the Ribbon Assortment below!! 
Monthly Ribbon Club, Domestic

I just love all the ribbons in Bonnie's 
Winter Blues Mix!!
When I saw this month's assortment, I thought...OOOhhhh!!  Look at all those beautiful blues!! 
Here is my first project!  
Winter Wonderland Christmas Bulb.
I created a triple loop bow with the Sheer with Stitched Center White Ribbon and my Bow it all tool.  I watched Bonnie's Tutorial here, where you created your bow so it slides on your ribbon!  Cool beans! I used the 3/8 Silver Metallic edged Silver ribbon for my bow and to go around my bulb.  I LOVE it!
Art Glitter Designer dries clear Glue & Ultra fine Metal Tip were used to add the dots of glue to the center of my ribbon and  #73 Platinum Art Glitter was applied.  The bulb was fill with #183 Blue Angel Art Glitter.  The bulbs were bought at my local Michael's store.
The glitter bulb is SUPER EASY PEASY to make!!  I even did a basic tutorial, showing you how to make the basic glitter bulb.  You can find in on my Youtube channel here.

 I was also inspired to Design another Pillow Box Christmas Ornament Digital Collage sheet set!! Of course I used a few images from Karen the Graphics Fairy.

Here is my first tag/ornament!! 
You can watch me talk about my goodies here on my Youtube Channel...or scroll down and read all about them.

 I used the same Sheer with Stitched Center White Ribbon for my bow at the top of my tag.  I just inked it with Frayed Burlap Distress ink from Ranger.  I pretty much inked all my ribbons with that for this project.
Pin It!
 The Diamond shell grey ribbon was used as my hanger at the top of my tag.  You can just make out the Silver & Blue Topaz Diagonal stripe grosgrain in the lower left of my photo.  1/4" Natural Crochet lace was used as garland on my Christmas tree image.  Teal Baker's Twine was wrapped around my sweet little Lily's waist.  I thought I would give her a fancy little tie for her Jacket.
I also used Baby blue line dots and more of the Diamond shell grey ribbon, I just didn't ink it as much as I did the ribbon at the top.  I topped off my number 15 with a Deep Ivory Mulberry rose!
I used #208 Fauna glitter on my number "15" and #261 Storm around the edges of my pieces.
Here is my second tag. is Pugsley and he is replacing the candy canes that Mr. Mittens has eaten.  Such a great little helper Mr. Pugsley!
If you didn't know already, I am a big fan of having people "Hold" and "Play" with my art.  So those sweet little candycanes, can be removed.  On this tag I used the Blue Topaz Satin Swiss dots, to wrap around my tag base as well as the Rachel white crochet lace.  I used the same Teal Baker's Twine to wrap some garland around Mr. Pugsley's Christmas Tree.  I just love all the little birdies in his tree!!
The White Delicate Stitched Satin was used for my hanger, the 3/8 Silver Metallic edged Silver ribbon  tops Mr. Pugsley's tree.

I also used Scor Tape and Tombo Foam Tabs from
Really Reasonable Ribbon, to hold my layers together, and elevate my some of my images.   
I added a Deep Ivory Mulberry rose to the right of my JOY text box, and I used a scrap of the Rachel white crochet lace with my text box, to give it the look of a gift package with bow. maybe you are going...well I didn't see Mr. Pugsley or his Birdie Christmas tree on that collage sheet...LOL. I thought I would save that till last. One more creation!!  I know...crazy right??  LOL

Victorian Vintage Chic Pink Pugsley Christmas Mitten Ornament!
Of course...I did use a few pieces from the collage sheet above on my mitten.  Figured I would mix things up a bit.
Sheer with Stitched Center White Ribbon again was inked with Frayed Burlap, as were all of my paper pieces.  I used it to tie a bow on my wire beaded hanger.  I also used it behind my Deep Ivory Mulberry rose, as a tiny bow.  I also used some of my favorite  Moss green leaves, on my mitten!  I have used the same #208 Fauna glitter and #261 Storm glitter through out my pieces.  I also used #162 Just Peachy  around the edges of my mitten and on my candy canes.  Below you can see how I added some seed beads, tucked in by my 3/8 Silver Metallic edged Silver ribbon  bow.
Here are the basic elements that you will get on this collage sheet.

The mitten base,  The Front and back of the following:  large Pink Candy cane, two smaller candy canes, Christmas Birdy Tree,  Mr. Pugsley and his little Lanturn, and sweet Lily.  You will also get two green birdie scallop circles, and two sets of Merry Christmas Text boxes.
In my photo above, the tree pictured was too big for my mitten, so I scaled it down, and the ones on the collage sheet are the ones used in my tags above.  I am sooo happy with how this sheet turned out.  It is really easy to put together.  If you need a little help, you can watch my tutorial for my
