It is new release time at May Arts Ribbon, and the design team has been working hard (I know, it’s tough working with pretty ribbon) to share some project ideas featuring all the new ribbons and trim!
If you have spent any time here at SCS, you will know that I love colour!! So, when I saw the new 7/8″ Double Faced Satin collection, I begged the Ribbon Lady to let me play!! If you haven’t seen this collection yet, it features 7 colours in the blue/green/teal family, and is available in the 3/8″, 7/8” and 1.5″ widths.
F or this little “Thinking of You Card” ( 4 1/4″x 5 1/2″), I simply created 1.5″ strips of the ribbon, cut the bottom edge into a v-shape, and then layered on row on top to the other – alternating the colours. I thought the colour family was so pretty that I let it define my paper choices too – a set that comes out of DCWV’s Chick Chat stack.
Since I loved how fresh and vibrant these colours were together, I also decided to create a couple of hair bows for my fresh and vibrant little gals!
These are just screaming to top off a couple of pigtails, don’t you think?
I also thought it would be fun to see how these ribbons worked with some other colour schemes too!
This wa a layout I created to celebrate a little crafter in my life! I love that the ribbons worked together to pull some of the colours out of the paper and create a bit more contrast.
I did a bit of layering for interest, and simply tacked the ribbon down with some adhesive from my ATG gun.
Okay, while I will admit that blues and greens are not my usual “go to” colours (pink, pink and more pink), I really love this collection!!! I have no doubt that it will be a big part of my crafting this spring (I see a whole collection of spring and Easter projects in the future).
Now, if you haven’t had a chance to see what the other ladies have been up to with their ribbon collections, get hopping!!! Not only will you see lots of eye candy, but you will have the chance to win some of the new releases for yourself! Here’s today’s line up:
