May Arts DT Call

Hi everyone, did you know that May Arts is having a DT call?  I am thrilled because I would love to work with this team.  And, having a wonderful supply of beautiful ribbons on hand wouldn't hurt either!!!!

My samples for the call include:

Catty Christmas card
Love this wonderful May Arts ribbon in pink - awesome  that I could "shed" it as if the cat got a hold of it before I used it on my card - simple but effective don't you think?

Happy Mothers Day card
Loved this wood grain pattern paper, but wanted a more feminine look - out came May Arts crocheted trim - the perfect finishing touch.  Love that the cream color of the trim worked well with the pattern paper I chose.
Hello card
May Arts Crocheted trim adds texture, color and dimension to this sweet card.  The trim "gives" a little so you can stretch and tie it as needed, and it still retained its shape.

Baby Buggy Favors 
Nothing screams baby shower like a baby buggy
Adding May Arts lace trim and little bits of ribbon were the perfect finishing touch to this little party favor and it was so easy to make!!!


And finally, a tutorial for my Friendship Box using May Arts lace and glitter ribbon.

Cut blue cardstock into a 9” square.
Score at 3” and 6”.
Rotate cardstock 90 degrees and score at 3” and 6”.
Turn cardstock so that the points are at the 6” spot and score from the point to the first score line.
Repeat for each corner.
Fold on score lines, folding the corners inward.

Using a floral rollagraph wheel, roll over white cardstock with Pinkolicious Ink.

Cut floral cardstock into 5 squares – each 2 7/8” x 2 7/8”.
Ink edges with Pinkolicious Ink and adhere 4 of them to the outside base within the scored lines.

Using a wordy rollagraph wheel and Squash Ink, roll across white cardstock.

Cut cardstock into a 9” square.
Score at 3” and 6”.
Rotate cardstock 90 degrees and score at 3” and 6”.
Cut out the 4 corners, creating a "T" shape.
Cut the corner pieces on a diagonal and trim to fit the corners of the base.
Ink edges with Squash Ink and adhere with the words showing.
Using the white side of this piece, ink the edges with Squash Ink.
Trim to fit.
Add Scor-Tape to the center panel and adhere, leaving the other flaps free.

Stamp 6 assorted sentiments on white cardstock with Very Berry Ink and emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.  
Cut, ink edges and mount 5 sentiments on blue cardstock.
Add 4 sentiments to the interior white flaps.
Stamp flourish on the center flap with Squash Ink and emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.
Die cut a sentiment into a circle and add to the center with foam adhesives.

To create the box top:

Cut blue cardstock 5 1/8" x 5 1/8” and score 1” around this piece.

Adhere the remaining floral panel to the center.
Cut along score line to the next scored line on each side. 
Add Scor-Tape to the smaller flaps and fold in to create the box top.

Add Scor-Tape around the edge of the box top.
Add Eyelet Trim  lace around the edge.
Clip at the corners so the ribbon lays flat.

Add Scor-Tape to the pink ribbon.

Place pink ribbon on top of the lace ribbon, pulling off the Scor-Tape in sections as you work.

Adhere the final sentiment to the box top.
Stamp a butterfly with Very Berry Ink and emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.
Add dots of color to the butterfly with Smooch Ink.
Adhere to the top with foam adhesives for dimension.

Add pearls around the box to finish.

  1. Stephanie, these are all wonderful! I love how you utilized the trims and laces.
    The brown crocheted ribbon with stretch is awesome... need to get some of that! And I love how you frayed the ribbon on that first cat card design. Best of luck on the call :)
