RCC84 – Summertime Fun!

Hi fellow crafters! Are you ready for a brand new monthly challenge???


This month we are looking for some Summertime Fun!


At least the northern hemisphere is in summer mode, although some areas are unseasonably cool right now. We hope our Southern hemisphere friends can play along as well and think happy summer thoughts!

So what  prize is up for grabs? How about a Ribbon Carousel?!

Each month we are giving away a Ribbon Carousel to one of our randomly chosen challenge participants!

Just a reminder that our Ribbon Carousel Crewmates have divided up into FOUR teams.  Each week you will see fresh projects for this month’s challenge!

There are three rules to be eligible for the prize:

1.  You MUST use ribbon or twine on your creation.

2. Your project must be based on the theme of the month.

3. You must add  a NEW project  to the inlinkz below and link directly back to your project on your blog or online gallery.

To get a summer feel for my card today I went for BRIGHT!  To me that spells out summer fun.  I chose Peaceful Wildflowers from My Favorite Things.  To get a simple, clean look I inked the stamp up using makers and just layered it with a small black edge.  Then highlighted the bright colors with some washi tape from Michael’s.  Super easy and fun!

Since my youngest son wanted to stamp along with me this evening – he decided to follow the theme as well!  Using some stamps from Paper Smooches, he came up with this card – all by himself!!  (he wanted me to say that I did make the grass for him using a die from MFT.)

RCC83 – Celebrate!

This month we are looking to celebrate your Heritage, show your country pride and celebrations. In the US the 4th of July is coming up right around the corner, so you may be seeing lots of red, white and blue. Since this is an all month celebration, what other colors are there?

So what  prize is up for grabs? How about a Ribbon Carousel?!

Each month we are giving away a Ribbon Carousel to one of our randomly chosen challenge participants!

Just a reminder that our Ribbon Carousel Crewmates have divided up into FOUR teams.  Each week you will see fresh projects for this month’s challenge!

So I didn’t really have any patriotic stamps…..so I kinda got red, white and blue (or red, teal and cream….same thing, right?!?)  Anyway, it works!  I tried a sketch challenge I found on Pinterest, but I don’t really think it worked all that well.  I may have to try it again later.  This one uses My Mind’s Eye papers, Spellbinders Nestabilities, and image from Everything Wonderful by Unity.

We’re on to the fabulously sunny month of June, so what better theme than:


FUN in the SUN!


Grab those sunglasses and show us your “Fun in the Sun” inspired creations!

So to me, the beginning of summer is all about the flowers, the green grass, the bright sun – you know, the time before it gets so freaky hot!  I used My Favorite Things LJD Sweet Roses along with their InstaFrame Die. I colored the flowers using my copic markers and popped them up with dimensionals.  Finished it off with a button and some twine!

Ribbon Carousel Blog Hop – Challenge 81


This month we are celebrating the Ribbon Carousel’s second anniversary! Hence this month’s challenge! What are you celebrating; birthdays, graduations, weddings, babies, anniversaries, retirement?


What is this month’s theme?

CELEBRATIONS!

So what  prize is up for grabs? How about a Ribbon Carousel?!

Each month we are giving away a Ribbon Carousel to one of our randomly chosen challenge participants!

I chose Mother’s Day for my celebration – since it is this weekend!  I chose to do something a little clean cut – mostly using dies.  I did use a sentiment from A Muse, but the rest was just white cardstock and some patterened papers.  I like piecing these together, it’s kind of like a puzzle.  The boys liked it so much, they decided to make them too!  Of course it has a little ribbon on it – I adore the seam binding.  It always gives an elegant finish to everything.

Ribbon Carousel Birthday Blog Hop!

Hey everyone! It’s our 2nd Birthday today and we are celebrating with a Blog Hop! This is no ordinary Blog Hop. Our amazing Crew has gathered up AMAZING prizes totalling over $750 just for YOU!  It’s our way of saying THANK YOU for all of your support these past two years!

I have two fantastic prizes to share with you guys!  First up, a little artwork and then PRIZES!  Remember, the more you comment, the more chances you have to win!

I made these cute cards for my niece, Kate.  I had already made a pirate version for her sister and was looking forward to some really girly ones for Kate.  It’s fun to indulge the girly side of myself making things for my nieces – the boys are not into pink all much.

I used some older papers I found in a file, JustRite monogram stamps and two kinds of fabulous May Arts ribbon to finish them off!

Now for the PRIZES!

First up is a prize from May Arts! They are giving away 3 rolls of ribbon OF YOUR CHOICE!  Who doesn’t LOVE ribbon?!?

And the second prize being given away here is a stamp set from Sin City Stamps!!  They have some gorgeous images there – really fantastic stuff!!


Enjoy!
