May Arts + LYB + Xyron!

 
Welcome to Day 3 of the hop! I hope you've been stopping by all the blogs for inspiration (and don't forget about the giveaway(s)!!!)
I've got a couple of really fun cards to share! 
 
I'm in love with this LYB Poppy line! So bright, happy & trendy!
I cut the 'Celebrate' with my cricut and then added glitter with the awesome Xyron Create A Sticker! I ran it through to put the adhesive on the front first & applied the glitter, then ran it through a second time to make my glitter embellie a sticker! FAB!
 
I've used a couple different papers & stickers for this card. And I layered the new 5/8" woven chevron in white (gah!) over 2 layers of the 5/8" sheer ruffle edge in orange. I am loving the effect & will be sure to put it to use again soon! 
 
 Next up!
 
 
 A different pattern from the Poppy line, anchored with the same great chevron pattern at top & bottom that I used on the last card!
Another sticker from the line- and don't you LOVE that CORK flower pin? I used a Xyron 3/16" dot adhesive to apply aqua glitter!
Can you tell I love that 5/8" sheer ruffle? I used the turquoise this time! I tied some bittersweet burlap string around that turquoise bow- yum!
 
 
I've had so much fun pairing these 3 awesome companies together- May Arts ribbons complement the LYB Poppy Line wonderfully- and the Xyron products stick them all together! (Lol!!! I'm cracking myself up!)

  8. The second card is my fav, I'm not sure if it's the eye popping background or the way you've tied string around the bow. I never think to do that but love the look!
