Stampendous May Arts Collaboration Week


All this week, the Stampendous Design Team is collaborating with May Arts. I have to tell you how excited I am about this. May Arts ribbon is the absolute best. There are so many glorious styles and colors which makes May Arts the perfect match for my favorite stamp company, Stampendous.


I created a Halloween Treat Bag. Stampendous released so many fun Halloween stamps this year, you could make a bunch of these, each one a little different. How perfect is this for school parties.

I started with a 10-1/2" x 3-3/4" piece of cardstock, scored at 1", 5-1/2", 5-3/4" and 6". On a panel that is 1/8" smaller, I stamped the Crowscape image using Versamark. After adhering the panel to the front of my scored cardstock, I diecut a small circle through both layers.

I stamped the Scruffles Candy image onto X-Press It Blending Card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored it with Copics and then fussy-cut. I used dimensional foam adhesive to adhere it to the treat bag.

And now for the ribbon. I took this yummy orange gingham and created a korker bow by wrapping the ribbon around a dowel and heating it in my oven for 20 minutes (250 degrees). There is a great tutorial on the May Arts You Tube site, here. I love the look of curled ribbon. To finish the bow, I threaded some more of the ribbon through a button and secured the whole thing to my bag with a glue dot.

OK, there is one last detail. I filled a clear bag with my new favorite candy, white chocolate candy corn m&m's. I stapled the top of the bag, ran a strip of tape on the inside of my treat bag and placed the clear bag inside.

Please visit the following blogs and leave comments for a chance to win prizes from Stampendous and May Arts. Also, please stop back on Saturday for the grand finale, a huge Stampendous May Arts Blog Hop. There will be even more chances to win.

  20. The depth you gave the bag with the background stamp is awesome! The cat stamp looks like something someone might have witness first hand:) The ribbons were a cute touch and the yellow were nice little pops.
