May Arts/CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop (Giveaway!)


It's here!!  A creatively jam packed one day Blog Hop with May Arts Ribbon and CardMaker Magazine and you're invited to join us for lots of ribbon inspired card ideas.

Here's my card for the hop.


I wanted to keep my design Clean and Simple, however, I wanted to do more than just a bow.  I managed to get 4 yummy May Arts Ribbons on my card front.  You'll find the card recipe below the hop list.

Here's the list of designers you'll be hopping with.  Make sure to leave each one some love!  One lucky comment will win 4 rolls of May Arts Ribbon...your choice!  Now that's a prize worth "hopping" up and down for!

Hope you've been inspired to use lots of May Arts Ribbon on your CAS cards!


Here's the recipe for my card:

White card base - 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Designer Paper - 5 1/2" x 2 1/2" Papertrey Ink
May Arts Ribbon in order of layering:  Satin Edge Velvet (388)Leaves (BY) Black and White; Sheer Frayed Flower (393) 
Stamps- Papertrey Ink Big Thank You
Other - Scor-Tape; sparkly button




The wonderfully talented AJ Otto is next!
