May Arts and CardMaker Blog Hop (Giveaway)


Hi friends!  I hope that you are all doing well!  Today, I have a very special post for you.  I'm participating in the May Arts and CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop.  To start the hop, please go to the CardMaker Blog.  Be sure to leave comments on every blog because May Arts is giving away a prize to one lucky person, FOUR spools of ribbon!

I haven't made many cards in the last few months.  Since I had the baby, I feel like my creativity is back but my time is really limited.  That and I'm really sleep deprived.  I'm a little rusty at making cards so please bear with me.

My first card is actually featured in the banner!  :D  I was pretty excited when I figured that out!  I used a bunch of colors of May Arts 3/4" striped twill and 1/2" white crinkle ribbon.  The sentiment is from Fresh Squeezed Stamps.  

Here's a more vintage card.  I used May Arts 3/4" lace with pearl center, 1/4" trimming ringlets, and gold metallic string.  The paper is Pink Paislee and the stamp is Hero Arts.  

My next card is for when someone finds out they are having a little girl.  I used May Arts 1" solid woven check ribbon, 1/2" crotchet ribbon, 3/8" grosgrain striped and stitched, 5/8" satin scalloped edge, 5/8" satin pleats, 3/4" twill stripes, and 5/8" faux suede.  The stamps are Paper Smooches and I added a velvet flower.

And for my last card, I made another baby girl card because apparently I have baby girl on the brain.  I used May Arts 1/2" crotchet, 5/8" satin scalloped edge, and the 1 1/4" silk ribbons.  The stamps are Paper Smooches and the paper is Crate Paper.  

I hope you enjoyed my creations!  Next up on the hop is Candy Rosenberg.  Don't forget to leave comments to be entered in the giveaway!  Have a great day, friends!

  37. Love the "color my world" card. Any stripes or polka-dots seem to appeal to me more than just plain colored ribbon. May Arts does have beautiful ribbons and you made good use of them. Hope things settle down for you and life runs smoothly.
