May Arts/Stampendous/Coredinations Blog Hop


Welcome to day #2 of the May Arts, Stampendous and Coredinations Blog Hop.  You should've come from Emily's blog.  Crafty love with homemade goodies, really who doesn't want a jar full of homemade cookies complete with a coordinating card?


There are some some great prizes up for grabs (see below), so hop along and leave a comment for your chance to win.  If you missed yesterday's hop, click here for a list.


To make the label for my jar I combined some stamps (Wplus9 Fresh Baked, Hero Arts Stamp Your Story and PTI) and Stampendous embossing powder.  Once my label was done I wrapped the jar in May Arts faux burlap and organic cotton striped ribbon.

  
Next up I wanted to make a card, so begin with I pulled out a Gourmet Stamps stencil and inked up the sheet of cardstock with versamark and then dumped a generous amount of Stampendous embossing powder over the whole area and heat embossed it.  I then die cut it out with a Spellbinders label die.  I used a piece of Coredinations card stock and dry embossed it and used the Core sander to add a rustic touch.  I cut out a smaller die with the red card stock and distressed the edges and added some May Arts burlap string around the die cut.


To finish off the card I wrapped a piece of May Arts faux burlap and a piece of woven burlap around the card and added the layers together and topped with some matching dies.


For more crafty fun hop along to the rest of the hop:
