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!)

May Arts + Core'dinations + Stampendous!

Welcome to Day 3 of the hop! :)
For my first card I used the Stampendous Cling Dream Text
stamp on whitewashed Core'dinations paper & heat embossed
with Stampendous Detail Clear embossing powder
 The tag was cut with my cricut & the reverse side of the
whitewash paper provides the pink lining. Stickles were used for
the flower center.
I KNOW you're loving that gorgeous bow! That's May Arts'
 Rose Silky Crush ribbon. YUMMO! The tag is tied on with the
The Core' Sand-it gadget was used for distressing.
 This next card is honestly stunning in person. It's probably in bad
taste to say that, but it's true. ;)
More of the Core' whitewash & this time the
Stampendous jumbo cling poppy was used. This is a large image &
I couldn't bear to cut any off so this is a 5x7" card!
 I used some purple pigment ink & again embossed with the
 Stampendous detail clear powder. I then watercolored the image with
 the same purple ink & used black marker on the center.
 The scroll image was stamped with versamark & heat embossed
May Arts black velvet corduroy was used to anchor the image, and
the chevron twill in mauve matched the paper perfectly.
I distressed the edges & used more of the whitewash paper as my
card base.
What do you think?
You KNOW there are some fab prizes involved with the hop!
