May Arts Ribbon New Release Week

New Release showcase time at 
this week!  Today wraps up the final day, but it's
not too late to join in on the action :)

**You have a chance to win your own New Release ribbon**
Check out the May Arts blog for more information!

I was excited to work with the Adhesive Scalloped Border Ribbon
for my projects today.  They come in an assortment of your basic colors:
white, ivory, black and also in bright red, tiffany blue, light blue and pink...
they're all gorgeous when paired together too!

I designed three different cards, with three different looks and with
an assortment or a single ribbon:

First, use the ribbon to decorate behind a die-cut opening as I did with
this "Hello" card:

I cut a square of cardstock a little larger than the star opening and then adhered
the light pink Adhesive Scallop Border Ribbon in an overlapping pattern.

Make your own embellishment!
I used a couple of simple die-cuts to create this cute bumble bee.
Using the black Adhesive Scalloped Border Ribbon was just the right accent
for the bee's body, while also adding some texture.

Lastly, create your own background for a card by
layering a single or various colors of the ribbon together:
Again, just cut a piece of cardstock to the desired size and begin
adhering the ribbon in the pattern that you'd like.

All three cards featurw papers and accents from different
 Simple Stories Collections.

**Here is a line up from the entire week**






I hope that you've enjoyed this week's projects with some of the
newest ribbon releases from May Arts Ribbon :)

  6. Lovely! Love the creative way you used the ribbon behind the star and as the lines on the bee!

  7. So, so impressed with the way you took something and created 3 beautiful yet fun and different cards using the same product!! You showed to a "T" how versatile this new product is and I am definitely convinced that I want to play with some of it soon!! I am in love with the freaking CUTE bumblebee!! You totally rocked this!!

  8. Each one of your cards are darling! I especially love that little Bee you created. He's super cute! The May Arts adhesive scalloped border ribbon is so very pretty. I could use it on so many projects. I like mixed media and I could see myself using the cream ribbon and adding some distress ink to age it up a bit. Swoon. I now Have to get my hands on some! Lol. Thanks for sharing.

  9. I am in love with your adorable little bee!!!! So darling!!! But I also am awestruck with your star card. Wow....that overlapping was brilliant and is just beautiful! Great job on these!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
