May Arts + Stampendous!!

May Arts & Stampendous have teamed up for some summer fun!

My first project is an altered tag from the Artful Accent Blue & Green Decorative Tags.
I used the 'Life is a Picnic' sentiment stamped with versafine black ink (I masked off the little ant you will see below). The 1/4" adhesive scalloped border in robin's egg makes a great border along the top & bottom!
Celery green 1.25" silk & the new robin's egg 3/8" double faced satin finish up as the pretty tag tie!

Next up I used the same sentiment along with the fun picnicking ants on a summery card!
Both are stamped in versafine black ink. The 3/4" elastic/plaid ruffle ribbon in red seemed the perfect picnic accent! I topped it with the 3/8" adhesive velvet ric rac- fast & fun! A black button is tied with 1mm waxed cord in red.

That's it for me today- make sure you check out all the inspiration this week! Don't forget to leave comments- there's a $25 Ribbon Resource Gift Card up for grabs!!
