Vintage Street Market & May Arts Blog Hop Day 4

Wow, this fun-filled week is just flying by!

Tomorrow, we announce the winner of the BLOG HOP GIVEAWAY, so be sure to enter. 🙂

Our first set of projects were created by Cherry Nelson (

Cherry uses Dimestore Vogue die cuts and Family Fun Meghan Kay cardstock for these super sweet pockets. The May Arts green and pink striped twill ribbons complement the die cut buttons perfectly and add a playful touch. What a great idea to tie some bling to the center! The May Arts lace trim also adds subtle texture to the bottom.

For this card, Cherry layered the Dimestore Vogue tags and die cuts to create the card’s focal point. The satin ribbon layers beautifully on the twill to create a bundle of bows!

For our last project of the day, Heidi Blankenship ( “dolls up” one of our Dimestore Vogue ladies on a really creative button card!

Per Heidi “All of the pattern paper and die cut images are from the Paper Sheets & Tags Dimestore Vogue Collection.  I used the pattern paper and the pink tape measure border and then I added white lace across the top of the card and above the tape measure border and I also added some white seam binding.  Then I added the die cut images of the lady and button tag.  I used several of the button die cuts.  For the buttons I punched holes and added thread, then used 3D foam squares to pop of the buttons and add some dimension.  I hand sewed the blue crochet lace trim and the smaller white lace, layered the two pieces, added a ribbon buckle and flat back pearl to make a rosette.  To finish off the card I added a white seam binding bow and some white pearls to the lace trim and for a necklace and earring.”

So many May Arts ribbon ideas on this card! The ribbon rosette is another great way to use those special ribbon scraps-what a great accent!

Thank you so much for joining us today! We hope you’ve been inspired to try some of these ideas on your next projects.

More fun projects tomorrow, and be sure to pop over the May Arts Blog for more ideas and Giveaways!

Have a happy day,
