Dreamweaver Thursday…FRILLED to be Playing with May Arts!

2016_STM_MayArtsbanner2

Since this is Thursday, we’re sure that you are aware that we’ve been happily hopping with May Arts Ribbon all of this week. If you’ve missed any days, head on back to the Monday, January 25th post. Of course, there are prizes involved! Just leave comments on all posts for the week for a chance to win one of the THREE prize packages. See Stampendous Official Contest Rules for details.

The best embellishments for any designer/artist are the items that are the perfect “finishing touch”. They ADD to the design without confusing the eye. Which is why we at Stampendous LOVE May Arts ribbons and trims! A card or project can be “pretty” and “nice”, but add a bit of May Arts ribbon…and suddenly you have “WOW”! Take a look at a couple examples below, envisioning what they’d be like without that added touch. Granted…we believe that everything is amazing when begun with a base of Stampendous and Dreamweaver products (what’d you expect?), but even we like a bit of bling and frill here and there!
