May Arts & G45 Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to May Arts & G45 blog hop. All week long, both teams will be bringing you tons of inspirations. Each day you can hop around to 4-5 blogs and simply by leaving comments, you would be entered for this week giveaway. For a prize detail and for a complete list of the blog hop participants for each day, please go to May Arts or G45 blog.

As you might remember, the fist time I used G45 products marked the day I tried on vintage style, which to my surprise lead to an acceptance letter from Paper Crafts for vintage card category (up coming Nov/Dec issue). So, needless to say the vintage style kind of grow on me a bit.

This time I get to play with G45 beautiful Tropical Travelogue collection. And I am  glad that I can combine the vintage look with my CAS style. Here's a look at my cards.





For both cards, I cut out the flowers from the patterned paper. I mean seriously, you could get loads of cards made from this one collection. And, depends on how you use them , you can create a simple CAS card or a vintage looking card.

For the ribbon part, I used May Arts velvet woven ribbon (PV16). On the first card, I folded the ribbons a couple time and on the second one I just leave it straight. It's my first time playing with the velvet ribbon and boy, this ribbon is so lush (hah... I sound like a British, but that's the best way to describe this ribbon). ;)

Please check out these blogs and leave some love for a chance to win some May Arts & G45 goodies. Today's blog to hop to are:

Vera --- you are here

Thank you so much for stopping by here. Have a beautiful day!
