Welcome to Day 3 of May Arts / DCWV Blog Week!
I am having so much fun with these swaps! They are pushing me to get some fun cards & scrapbook pages completed!! This week we’ve got the fabulous DCWV to work with! These first two cards put their Mi Casa line to use:
I attached the bright paper to a cardstock base & added another strip that I used a border punch. I tied some sheer/ruffle edged ribbon around the pattern paper panel & slid a yellow hydrangea bloom under the knot. I also inked around the edges with a coordinating ink. A quick sentiment & you’ve got a quick, fun card- easy to mass produce!
The next card also lets the pattern paper do all the work!
That is all ONE PIECE!!! How fabulous is that? I attached it to a card base & tied on some sheer/iridescent pinstripe ribbon, finishing it in a simple bow. I added a red button, tied on with some red burlap string. Isn’t the embossed glitter gorgeous?
The rest of my projects use the Green Tea stack- and I must tell you- it is FUN!!
First up is a card:
I stamped & embossed the cute plane right onto that pattern paper! I paper pieced the little banner. I think this ribbon treatment turned out really fun! I started with the 3/8” grosgrain & layered the 1/8” velvet over the top! I had a little go over the edge & cut the end to match the banner!
Here’s one more pic to try to show you the cool foil in this paper!
Now for a scrapbook page:
I’ve used 3 different papers from the Green Tea pack on this page! I added some white paint to the base layer. The pictures are on one sheet & I die cut the tickets & the top border-punched strip from the 3rd sheet! I’ve used 1” sheer pink, and topped it with fuchsia wrinkle ribbon, and pink sheer box pleat ribbon for the ribbon border. I also added an American Crafts medallion.
A fun ribbon element using the 1” sheer again!
And here’s a SUPER quick card using some more of those tickets from that layout & 3/8” grosgrain/horizontal lines that were a perfect match!
On to the last layout- TWO pages!
I added a tab of 1.5” grosgrain/ivory stripe & a border punched strip from a coordinating paper.
I used fabri-tac by Beacon adhesives to attach that looped trim.
I used spellbinder dies to cut the top of the journaling box into that fun shape.
I made a ribbon flower using the 1.5” grosgrain. The button is made from a coaster & embossed/inked. I then tied it on with ¼” silk ribbon & finished with a bow.
Whew! I hope you have enjoyed these projects as much as I enjoyed creating them!
Thank you so much DCWV! It’s been great putting the beautiful papers together with the beautiful May Arts ribbon! I hope you’ve been inspired!
