Helmar & Ribbon Carousel Blog Hop with Giveaway!

Today the Helmar Design Team are teaming up with the designers at Ribbon Carousel, to bring you a jam packed Hop filled with with crafty goodness!

Ribbon Carousel has some wonderful ribbon organizers and that is how this amazing company started. Today, we get to feature some other wonderful products that they carry, so hop along with us and have fun!

Ready to hop? Let's go!

I was totally excited to receive Ribbon Carousel product to work with! They sure do have an eye for color and I love color! I created this simple but elegant card using eight different ribbons!


I love ribbon garlands! You could totally decorate your home or party with this sewn garland. But, instead I just glued them on this card created with Color Magic paper misted with Color Shine in Black Velvet to go with the ribbon. I used Helmar's 450 Quick Dry because it dries clear and, well, quick. ;)
 
Of course no Ribbon Carousel card can be complete without a little bling! I added this Teresa Collins Blinage from her Christmas Cottage Collection and tied it to the belly band. I wanted the person that received this card to be able to remove it if they liked and use it for a broach.
 
 
 
The belly band is created with a reversible satin ribbon that is beautifully soft! I added a drop of 450 Quick Dry to the back of one side of the ribbon so that it could easily slip on and off  the card.
 
 


I wanted a place inside to slip a note in and out. I just added a small amount of 450 Quick Dry to the edges of this mesh ribbon to hold the note card.


The note card was made with the scraps of the base card. I sprayed it with Color Shine in Georgia Peach to get it to match the mesh. To get the resist as white as I could, I sprayed a paper towel with Windex and wiped it clean.


Now, lets talk prizes!

Hop along with us today and leave some blog love for the designers of Helmar and Ribbon Carousel for your chance to win!!

The Helmar prize is a complete 12 pack of Zapdots, including clear, black and white in circles and squares both in 1/4" and 1/2" sizes!
