All three design teams have swapped products and will be sharing on our blogs all week long.  Join us for some great inspiration as well as a chance to win several prize packages from all 3 companies!

Today Kim Kesti joins us with three fun cards using our Under the Stars Simple Set, several Xyron products and some May Arts ribbon & twine.

Hi - Kim here!  I am so excited to be posting today using both the fabulous May Arts ribbon and the perfect adhesive to keep everything in place: Xyron! I have three cards to share and a few tips on using the adhesives as well.

All of my cards are created with the Under the Stars Simple Set, it is just so fresh and fun – perfect for some special summer themed cards. Here I used the Xyron Glue Stick in a unique way.

I simply adore the thicker twine produced by May Arts, but like all twine, the ends tend to ravel and come untwisted. Just dab a bit of glue stick on the end of the twine and, boom! Problem solved. It is way easier to use than a runnier liquid adhesive and dries really fast!

My next card uses some of the crocheted lace by May Arts – something that can be a challenge to adhere, but not if you have the little Xyron 1.5” Sticker Maker!  Just run that lace through and you have the perfect adhesive. **Please notice that I still use my older “orange” version of the Sticker Maker – Xyron was nice enough to send me this new purple version which I am giving away on my blog! Check www.kimkesti.com and enter to win.

I layered twill ribbon on top of the lace for a fun bohemian look.

My last card is purely for fun! I love how perfectly the Chevron Stripes ribbon (http://www.mayarts.com/ribbons/3-4-inch-twill-stripes/) matches this 3 X 4 journaling card. Swoon!

Hey, thanks for taking a look at my cards. It sure is easy to create with such inspiring products!
