May Arts Stampendous/Coredinations Blog Hop

It's time for a whole week of super inspiration with May Arts RibbonCore'dinations and Stampendous.  The design teams have partnered to bring you not only amazing projects but fantastic giveaways as well.

Each day this week, 2-3 of the designers from each team will be bringing you projects and a chance to win some awesome prizes.  All you have to do is comment to win!  

For my project today, I REALLY wanted to use some of the bookmarks from Core'dinations and of course a variety of glitter from Stampendous! 


So here's what I came up with! 

I added some May Arts crochet lace to the top along with some flowers from May Arts. I dipped the flowers in some glue and then added some of the Crystal Snow glitter from Stampendous. 

On the bottom of the tag, I added some Stampendous Pearlized Mica Fragments to look like scales or waves to go with the nautical theme. This was my first time using the Mica Fragments, they are beautiful, but very messy! I tried to heat emboss to get them to stick and blew them all over my craft room. Once I figured out how to use them, they gave my little tag a beautiful effect. on top of these I added some Vintage Blue Embossing Tinsel. 

Before you hop on to the next blog, check out this amazing prize that you could win!

I read a lot so I've got bookmarks scattered all through the house. I finish a book and the bookmark stays wherever I finished. This bookmark is so pretty. Love the sparkles for the water. The ribbon works well with the whole project. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to remember this one to try in the future.
