Where to Buy May Arts Ribbons
The May Arts website is their wholesale site for online and brink and mortar retailers. We’ve linked to it so that you can easily view their entire product line in one place. There are numerous places where you can purchase May Arts Ribbons including many local scrapbook stores as well as online stores. Two of the online stores that carry the biggest selections that we are aware of include Amazon, who carry the complete May Arts Ribbon Line (plus you can qualify for free shipping). Click on the link we provided and it will take you to our May Arts Ribbon Search Results. To find a particular ribbon, go to the May Arts website, find the name of the ribbon and color and then enter that into your Amazon search results. Please note that through Amazon you’re buying by the roll. Most other online and local scrapbook stores sell May Arts Ribbon by the yard. One of the online stores that carries a great selection is Ribbon Carousel.
May Arts Design Team Project
Today we have with us May Arts Designer Jennifer Ingle. You will find her project below, but first here is a little bit about Jennifer:
My name is Jennifer Ingle aka…. Jingle. I am me. I am a wife. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a friend. I am an artist. I am a crafter. I laugh. A lot.
For the projects below, I love how the two looks are so different and yet both use the exact same basic technique with just a twist in supplies! There are so many possibilities! To see more of my work, feel free to visit me at my blog, Just Jingle!
Halloween Candy Corn Cards
Gem Accents by Queen and Company
Tombow Power Bond
Tombow Foam Tabs
Happy Halloween Stamp by Gourmet Rubber Stamps
It’s always fun to find new twists on great ideas! Today I’m showing you two ways to make the same basic card design using wonderful twine and ribbon from May Arts!
To create the cards, begin by creating two card bases from black cardstock. Trim a patterned paper panel to layer on top of the cards. Use a pencil to sketch out a candy corn shape on the back of the patterned paper panels and then cut out. You will use the negative for this, so be sure to leave it in tact. Using Tombow Power Bond adhesive, run tape along the edges of the candy corn shape on the back of the patterned paper. Place strips of ribbon from one side to the other over the adhesive for the ribbon card.
For the twine card, start the twine at the bottom and work on LONG piece back and forth until you are done with that color. Move from Orange to yellow and then to white on each card. Stamp the Happy Halloween sentiment on the bottom of each panel and then adhere them to the card bases with foam tabs. Add the gem stones for a bit of sparkle!
We hope you have enjoyed today’s projects. We want to extend a sincere thank you to Jennifer Ingle for sharing her creations with us. And don’t forget to enter to win one of the great ribbon give-a-ways from May Arts. Please leave your comment below.
