May Arts + Core'dinations!

It's a fun week of May Arts & Core'dinations teaming up for a blog hop!

I've got a few projects to share:

I made this cute tag with Core'dinations whitewashed paper- it's dry embossed with a Cuttlebug snowflake folder.
May Arts 1.5" snowflake is topped with a satin cutout snowflake.
Beautiful light blue silk ribbon is accented with silver/white Baker's twine. Love how wintry this feels!

Another snowflake! This one uses the kraft Core'dinations paper and is embossed with a Dreamweaver stencil snowflake.

More kraft Core'dinations paper! This one is embossed with a Dreamweaver damask stencil.
I used the white adhesive fleur-de-lis scroll ribbon on top of the teal 1.5" silk. Spray ink was used to alter the color- I love that it ties in so well with the exposed kraft.

Kraft Core'dinations & Dreamweaver stencil. 
I folded the 1.5" gold metallic ribbon in half to tie around the focal panel so that it wouldn't cover too much of the cool paper, but also have a tie with a lot of wow. Kraft raffia gives a surprise texture!

That's it for me today!

Here's the hop order- be sure to see all the inspiration- and head to the May Arts blog to see the fabulous prize up for grabs!
