May Arts:: Stampendous


May Arts has teamed up with Stampendous for a whole week of inspiration! I got to work with cool, wild stamps from Stampendous and pulled out some coordinating May Arts Ribbon.

I started my first card by stamping the beautiful Pen Pattern Lion Rubber Stamp from Stampendous, and lightly coloring him with copics. I then added some details from the Wild Sayings Perfectly Clear Stamps and a background image from an older, retired Stampendous stamp. Then I finished the card with some of my go-to ribbon, 1/4" Silk Ribbon in Antique Gold (SK33) and a double bow of May Arts Burlap String in Ivory (SM09) and Antique Gold (SM32). I absolutely adore that there are so many different textures of ribbon and trims available from May Arts in the same color.


My next projects features the cool, wild inspired ribbon available at May Arts. I created a simple gift card hold and wrapped it in two rows of May Arts 5/8" Velvet Animal Print in Giraffe (429-58-13). I then made a fluffy, luscious bow of 1.25" May Arts Silk Ribbon in Antique Gold (SK33) and looped some May Arts Burlap String in Antique Gold (SM32) to complete the look. I finished the gift card with a stamped sentiment from Stampendous' Wild Sayings Perfectly Clear Stamps.


This hop has a fabulous prize associated with it! There is a $25 Ribbon Resources (May Art's Retail Online Store!) up for grabs! Stop by the May Arts Blog for more details, and see the line-up below.

  6. Ooo, Karen, these are EXCELLENT! I love your lion the most - but that is because I immediately saw it with a lamb at his feet and it made me happy to think of one of my favorite images. Also, I have a large Maine Coon cat that sometimes reminds me of a lion. But seriously - the way you colored the lion is just amazing! It makes him look interesting but not "real". I wish I had your creative talent - but at least I can imitate you!
    Hugs!!
