Fantastic Ribbons - Blog Candy ends 12th June

I have some very exciting blog candy from Fantastic Ribbons but before I get to that I wanted to share a card made using some of the lush satin ribbon that they sell.
A pretty satin ribbon, a notebook punch some pretty papers, a sweet hAnglar stAnglar stamp , Promarkers to colour and a bit of love to bring it all together.

Attention to detail...

See what I did here with the Fantastic Ribbon, a couple of folds and a pretty flower on top.

I added some sweet letters and raised a couple of them with dimensional dots to make them pop.

As most of you will know ribbon makes a fabulous finishing touch to your cards and scrapbooks and I for one just love the stuff.

Visit their web site and see why are now the UKs leading craft and hobby ribbon supplier on a roll. Take a look at their summer sizzler colours, the fruity dotted sheers or the fabulous shaded roses on a cord. Remember the more you buy the more you save. Enjoy!

Now for a Fantastic Ribbon Prize, after you have visited their website Come back and tell me in a comment which colour and type of their ribbon you like best, then add the Blog Candy to your blog I will pick 1 winner who will receive 10 reels of their Fantastic Ribbon.

I will pick a winner on Saturday the 12th June

The 31mm Europa White Lace as it would be so versatile. Thanks for introducing me to this website - amazing & sorely tempted to ask husband for some for my birthday.
Love the way you've folded the ribbon.

Anne said...

Jak what a beautiful card and those ribbons are FANTASTIC. There are so many I like that it would be difficult to choose just one, but I would love the lace as it is so versatile.


Tine said...

Hi Jak,
I have popped over to see the ribbon shop and have added it to my list of favs! As for which ribbon was the best...can you really choose..? I think it was a toss up between the 9mm plain white satin (so versatile) and the 9mm light blue grosgrain with white dots - as that shade of blue has been my fave colour since I was a little girl. Thanks for giving us a chance to win some ribbons too.
Tine :)

Josephine said...

Such a lovely card. And a lovely selection of ribbon too - my favourite is probably the lace, but then the satin is probably the most useful - especially with all those colours to choose from!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Jak your card here is super but then all your cards are prize them all,

checked out the ribbons and they all look super especially the ribbon wreath bundle but I guess I would have to go with the velvet ribbon in pink for individuality,

thanks for sharing

Meg Owen said...

What a pretty card Jak I love the rose backing paper.
My favourite from Fantastic Ribbons is the Duo Tone Pink Flowere satin.

Anonymous said...

Love your card & that wee girl is so cute. I also love the punch you use.

I love Fantastic Ribbons & have bought from then before.

I am liking their dotty grosgrain ribbons this time as I think it suits most cards well & they have a fab colour palette but if I have to pick it would be the pink dotty 16mm.

Nicole Brenna said...

I checked out their store and they have a lot of ribbon. I was drawn to the dots because well it is simple I like polka dots. I will post this giveway on my blog thanks

craftygran said...

helen scott said...

oohh I love ribbon, you seem to be quite partial to a bit a ribbon yourself I have noticed! For me the fav is the garbo burgundy - simply because I love both the colour and the two tone, sheer and solid ribbon in one. I have little bits of ribbon in this style in tonnes of different shades! As always, thank you for sharing and inspiring.

sarj said...

Trish said...

Hi Jak,
Another beautiful card and yes the ribbon finishes it off so well. I had a look at the site you mentioned and it was so difficult to choose a favourite, but since I have to, it would be the sunburst rainbow- absolutely incredible colours that would brighten any card.

Loz said...

OMGoodness... this card is gorgeous! I love what you've done with the ribbon and flower, that ribbon is divine, though I do like the 5mm Picot Edge Satin Brown, yummy!! Thanks ♥

Michelle said...

Gorgeous card! Love that image and you've coloured it beautifully! Stunning! Oh and candy too, fantastic! Hard to choose from all those pretty ribbons, but my fav has to be the 39mm Colour Plaid Purple from their tartan collection. I love purple and i'm Scottish so partial to a wee bit of tartan! Thanks for the chance to take part!

Sue said...

Just gorgeous Jak,love the colours.I like the 9mm sheer brown with white dots.

All the ribbons are just beautiful and hard for me to choose favorite as I like them all.
If I should happen to win, I would be tickled pink to receive any of them. I like variety.
Thank you.

I love your card! I just bought a notebook punch and you've given me some great ideas for it! I like the lace ribbon - it's so pretty and can be used so many different ways. Thanks for the chance Jak - and for your blog. I love seeing your cards are reading about the adventures of your grandson. Got you linked up on mine!
