May Arts:: Avery Elle & Um Wow Studios

Three companies, three fantastic products. May Arts has teamed up with Avery Elle and Um Wow Studios for a week of inspiration, and let me tell you, there has never been a better teaming of products!

My first card features a stamped background of laurel leaves from Avery Elle's Laurels Stamp Set, as well as a sentiment from the same set. I tied the panel with my favorite card making ribbon, May Arts 1.25" Silk in Moss Green (SK08). Then I tied some super beautiful Um Wow Studios Confetti Butterflies with May Arts Burlap Natural String (SM10) and hung them from the bow. I love the whimsical feel of the floating butterflies.

My next card features the same products, except I created the card panel first by laying down some Um Wow Studio Confetti Butterflies onto a white cardstock and then misted the background for resisted butterfly images.

I then tied a large bow with May Arts 1.25" Silk Ribbon in Pink (SK17) and trimmed it with the 3/16" String Looped Ribbon (DA12). I finished the card with a stamped sentiment from Avery Elle's Laurels Stamp Set.

There's prizes up for grabs, so please be sure to stop by the May Arts Blog for more details. The giveaway is 3 prize packs of:

  • 1 Stamp Set
  • 1 roll of ribbon
  • 1 mask, flair set & layered chipboard set

I love both of your cards but the butterfly one is stunning!! I really like how you used the butterfly chipboard as a mask and then as an embellishment! TFS!
