Splash of Color:: May Arts

***Please scroll down to see the debut of my stamp set "Welcome to the Office"
from The Craft's Meow***


The cotton eyelet offered by May Arts Ribbon (447 series) is just too sweet for words! Did you know that it is easy to customize too? I used the fabulous Twinkling H2Os from Splash of Color to add a "splash of color" to the white eyelet trim series. The ombre effect look is so much fun for a card. Here's the entire look at my first project:


I started by cutting a 7-8 6" lengths of the trim and then soaking it in the yellow H2O, and then worked in some of the orange and red.


I layered the trim to a piece of cardstock using double stick adhesive, tucking the edges in. I finished the card with some natural burlap string (SM10), a satin flower from May Arts (439-01) and a tag and homemade clay flower embellishment. I think the look is so sweet.


Next, I used the cooler colors of H2O's-same steps applied...


The trim used on this card was the more solid of the series.


I oriented the card vertically and attached the ribbon over an embossed cardstock panel. This card too, was finished with with a tag and handmade clay flower embellishment, but I added some white wrinkle ribbon (EA01) and bow for extra impact.


I hope these projects inspire you to customize your own ribbon! It gets even better, there are prizes up for grabs from both May Arts Ribbon and Splash of Color: a 6 pack of petite Luminarte H2Os and all three spools from the May Arts eyelet series!
