May Arts Holiday Blog Hop


Hi everyone and welcome to day 2 of May Arts Ribbonista Blog Hop. All week long all May Arts ribbonista is sharing fun and fabulous holiday projects.  In case you miss yesterday's hop,  you can check it out HERE.

For my post, I decided to make several cards. For the 1st card, I start with this poinsettia  flower card using the grosgrain ivory stripe ribbon (RG46).  The poinsettia was made using my favorite tool ever, Mister Q (my Silhouette love name) and Core'dinations cardstocks.



This card is pretty quick to make. Here's a quick  how to:
1. Cut a strip of ribbon and adhere to card.
2. Cut poinsettia using Silhoutte and adhere to ribbon.
3. Stamp sentiment.


Next, I decided to do wreath cards. This first wreath one I made using sheer dots ribbon (JD46). The circle sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink & the bird is from Paper Smooches. Same poinsettia like above, just in smaller scale.



I made this wreath ribbon for May Arts summer post. In case you miss the post, here's the how to for this card:
1. Cut a circle ring.
2. Cut about 18" long ribbon and add a bit of glue to the back of the circle ring and adhere the ribbon and start wrapping it around the ring (the length of the ribbon would depend on how large your ring and the width of your ribbon. But, for card, I find 1/2" and 5/8" width ribbon work best).
3. Stamp circle sentiment on card.
4. Adhere the wreath to card.
5. Cut poinsettia using Silhouette (or you can also use ready made sticker) and adhere to wreath.
6. Stamp bird, color, fussy cut, and adhere to card.

For  my last card, I went with slightly unusual Christmas color combo by throwing in the light blue color ribbon (JD34). Same step like above.
