May Arts Ribbon Blog

Introducing: UmWowStudio Chipboard! {and a giveaway}


Here at the May Arts Ribbon Blog, we have an amazing Design Team.   And I’m not just saying that because I am The Ribbon Lady.  😉  They are not only incredibly talented, but truly great people too.  Many of whom I am proud to call my friends.  So, when I heard Prima Ribbonista DeeDee Catron had started up UmWowStudio making these amazing chipboard embellishments, well I couldn’t have been happier for her.  I also couldn’t wait to get some of those embellishments in to the hands of our other Ribbonistas to play with…and, of course, a chance for y’all to have some too!  Cause you know I’m all about sharing the crafty love.  🙂  So, DeeDee and I put together this prize package for 1 lucky winner:

UmWowStudio Prize Pack

an assortment of chipboard pieces from UmWowStudio

May Arts Ribbon Rack

and 2 spools of ribbon: Your Choice!

What do you have to do to win?  Easy!  Just head on over to the UmWowStudio Blog & post a comment.  Tell ’em May Arts sent you.

I’ll announce a winner right here on Wednesday May 1st.

Now, we couldn’t very well leave you without some crafty inspiration.  So, I asked some of our Ribbonistas to create a project with our ribbon and UmWow chipboard pieces.  Here’s what we came up with:

Leah Farrar-White:

Gift Tags with Chipboard and Ribbon

“For this project I created 3 tags. Each tag holds a chipboard element colored in different ways. The daisy was painted using acrylic paints. The cattails were colored using chalks.  The bluebells were colored using water color crayons.”

“With spring planting season and Mother’s Day fast approaching here in the United States, I put together a little gift perfect for the lady gardener in your life. May Arts Ribbon and UmWow chipboard are the perfect combination of crafty goods! I gathered a little tin bucket, tucked in some floral foam, and looped some green linen ribbon (secured with pins into the foam) to provide a base of “grass/greenery” for my gift items-a pair of gloves and a few seed packets. I added some amazing UmWow chipboard flowers to give the gift some interest, height as well as dimension. These are nice and sturdy pieces so they stand up without support and were simply secured in the flower foam as well. I tied the seed packets together and added an UmWow chipboard butterfly to the bucket handle with natural burlap string. This gift was so easy to put together!”
All Occasion Card
“Simple, all occasion greeting card with May Arts silk and satin pleats and some Authentique paper, vellum and sequins.”
Hexagon Layout
“My littlest was a bumble bee for his first Halloween so I just couldn’t help myself with the hexagons.  Making it look like he was a busy little bee in the hive.  I hand wrote my title (which was one of my favorite Looney Toons cartoon when I was kid) with a fine point pen on the faux canvas to give it the perfect touch.”

“UmWow chipboard shapes make for amazing accents on any project.  Here’s a layout showing three different ways to add interest with chipboard.  First you can use a super cool sentiment chipboard piece as your title.  Or make your pictures POP by framing them in a chipboard piece (Love this filmstrip one).  You could also draw attention to a spot by using the chipboard to point it out.”

“I love the Um Wow Studio chipboard pieces! I have been a fan of working with chipboard for quite some time now and I have never worked with chipboard pieces so thick and of such great quality! No wonder DeeDee named the company UmWow, once you feel these little pieces, that’s exactly what you will be saying!
 I decided to make a little gift bag, you can never have enough of these little guys laying around! You never know when you will need a quick little gift bag to throw a gift in. Plus, handmade gift bags are much cuter than bags that you can buy at the store! The chipboard pieces and May Arts ribbons put the perfect finishing touch on this little bag.
Looking for a quick, fun, & useful project to create? Grab some Um Wow Studio chipboard pieces, your favorite May Arts ribbon, and some plain gift bags and get crafty!”
Thank you all for stopping by today!  I hope you have been inspired to create with UmWowStudio Chipboard.  Be sure to head on over to ther blog now for more great projects and a chance to win!
