May Arts + Simple Stories + Xyron

Welcome to Day 4 of the team up between May Arts/Simple Stories/Xyron!
What fun!
I am working with the Good Day Sunshine pack. I know I will use these supplies for scrapbooking too, but for today I've got 4 cards to share! They all feature the Simple Stories 3x4 Element pieces.

First up- Happy Summer!
I've got the new 2.5" plain Cotton blend, topped with light fuchsia 5/8" satin/grosgrain double band & tied with yellow burlap string. I secured all the ribbon & the cardstock element with Xyron's tape runner. That sticker seems to tie it all together!

Next- hello!
I covered the entire card front with the Xyron tape runner adhesive then added the focal card & LOTS of burlap string (red, yellow, parrot green, light blue, lavender) and a little twisted burlap string (orange & grape)!

Thought this would be a fun card to give to my husband. The new 5" tiffany blue tulle looks great with the stickers from the Simple Stories kit & the 3x4 element! Xyron tape runner holds things in place!

Who wouldn't love this card? I used some of the patterned paper from the kit, topped it with a 3x4 elelment tied with the new 1/4" tiffany blue silk & added a sticker from the kit. Again used that awesome Xyron tape runner!

Now, of course, we have a chance for you to win some goodies of your own! Make sure to leave a comment for your chance at one of 3 sets of prizes up for grabs, each composed of the following:

 Here's the line up for the week so you don't miss a chance at inspiration or the prize pack! :D
