May Arts New Release Ribbon Blog Hop

Court from Court’s Crafts here! I received this awesome silk ribbon! It’s so soft and .. well.. silky! :) It’s quite flat - there is virtually no thickness which is awesome for cards!

For my first card I used loops to emphasize my sentiment and distract from the busy background. 

My second card was actually where my inspiration came from. I wanted to weave the silk ribbon. As the ribbon is a 1” width, I wove it on a 4” x 4” piece of card stock. Then I had to find a way to get the sentiment on the background without covering up the weaving. I achieved this by using the loopy method. :) 

My last project is a quick tag. I wanted to tie a bow with this gorgeous ribbon and the way the folds worked on the top of the tag - ugh. lovely. I have always said that May Arts Ribbon is the BEST for tying bows and this ribbon is no different. Luscious. 

Here is the line- up for the week!!!!
