Splash of color!

May Arts & Splash of Color have a new partnership!
This month the focus is eyelet & twinkling h2o's!
Head over to see what the ribbonistas came up with & leave a comment for your chance to win a roll of each eyelet & $20 from luminarte products!
(Luminarte products shown are an example only)

I started with painting each strip a color from the basic rainbow set:

Isn't that rainbow delish?

Next I added each color to a piece of cardstock with adhesive.

Once I had all the pieces adhered I trimmed off the excess!

See the finished project at May Arts! Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance at some delish ribbon & luminarte products! :)

May Arts & Lawn Fawn!

Lawn Fawn & May Arts are always such a fun combination!
I've got a couple of cards to share today- first off, a birthday card!
I started with Dewey Decimal paper, and embossed a birthday cake from year one in white powder.
 I used teal 5/8" twill, topped it with white mini pom poms, and tied it up with light blue mini cording!
Next I've got a fun 'just because' card!
This time I used paper from the bright side collection. I cut a polaroid with the say cheese die, then stamped a bird from fly free on vellum. The sentiment is also from fly free.
I layered two pieces 5/8" satin/scallop edge ribbon in olive on the bottom portion of the polaroid opening. I tied a simple bow in the new yellow burlap for a fun pop! love!
For another fun card featuring May Arts & Lawn Fawn, check out this post! :)
You probably can guess that there are prizes to be had when these two great companies team up!
You're RIGHT!
Make sure you leave comments on each post during the week for your chance to win: 
3 Spools of Ribbon – Your Choice!
A Lawn Fawn stamp and die set of your choice! 
Here's the schedule for the week!!! :)

Happy Birthday Erin: 2013 edition!

Today is Erin's birthday, a very special friend! As has become a tradition, Karen & I have joined forces to celebrate!
Since we know Erin loves May Arts & challenges, we decided to use that as our guide!
We chose to play in the Lawnscaping challenge; I pulled out bannerific, swimsuit season and the dewey decimal patterned paper from Lawn Fawn!
I also used ribbon from May Arts- a burlap (the one I used isn't currently in the catalog, but this one would be similar!) on top of 1.5" red silky/crush! Red & burlap are both in honor of Erin!

The background was created by misting a Dreamweaver Stencil.
I kept the card very literal- the circle from the sketch was created with my sewing machine.

Make sure you stop by Erin's to wish her a happy birthday & Karen's blog to see her birthday celebration for Erin!
The Ribbon Lady wanted to play along too- so be sure you stop by the May Arts blog for a special opportunity (you know how the Ribbon Lady loves a giveaway- just sayin'!)
Happy Birthday, Erin!
And because Erin is the master of combining challenges, I'll add this one to the current Ribbon Carousel Challenge where we're to use patriotic colors! :)
