Core'dinations, May Arts and Stampendous Blog Hop!

Wednesday, June 5, 2013


Welcome to Day 3 of the Core'dinations, May Arts and Stampendous Blog Hop! We are hopping all week long and there are some great prizes up for grabs. Each company is giving away prizes on their own blogs and there will be surprise winners on the individual team member blogs as well.

Here are my creations for today using Core'dinations, May Arts and Stampendous Stamps. I was sent some fabulous May Arts ribbons and some sentiment stamps from Stampendous Stamps to work with.


I used Core'dinations Core Essentials Brights, Core Neutrals and Spotted Jillian Dot on my first card. I layered some Floral/Felt white trim from May Arts over the Spotted Jillian Dot for some added texture. I love that little curve in the Just a Note stamp from Stampendous, I positioned the flower so it just curves around it! The chevron embossing folder is from Crafter's Companion. I also used some Solid Check ribbon and Sheer Ruffle edge ribbon from May Arts.


Here's my second card. I love black and white cards and the gorgeous Houndstooth ribbon from May Arts was the inspiration for this card. I also used Sending a Hug stamp from Stampendous, embossed using Detail Black embossing powder from Stampendous. The rose garden embossing folder is from Crafter's Companion. I also used some Black Magic cardstock on my card from Core'dinations, I love that collection!


Check out who's participating in the hop today! I'm sure you'll be inspired! Don't forget to leave a comment on each of the blogs to be in with a chance of winning some great prizes!
