Hey Crafty Friends,

We are excited to have our friends at There She Goes as this week’s challenge sponsor! 

Head over to the Ribbon Carousel Challenge blog for all the details on this week’s challenge and learn how you could win a prize!


I’m a huge fan of TSG (and was even on the design team for a while) so I just had to play along.  I also had a new stamp that was just dying for some ink.  Gotta love when it works out that way. ;)


I stamped Birthdaybot in Memento Tuxedo Black on Choice Snow White cardstock three times: there is the bottom layer which was die cut using a Circle Nestabilities die, the second layer that consists of his arm and the gift and the third layer which is just his arm.  All layers were colored with Copic markers and adhered together using foam dimensionals.  Other notes: I used a Silver Spica pen to hi-light portions of the image and I added Glossy Accents to his visor.


All of the designer papers used on the base panel are from the Follow Your Heart – Be Amazing 6x6 designer pad from My Mind’s Eye. I tacked all of the pieces to a panel of Taken with Teal cardstock and then stitched in place using my sewing machine.  I added a sentiment flag cut from So Saffron cardstock and finished embellishing the card with a wood button, some jute and a few orange rhinestones.


Some challenge details: Your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings! *** Be sure to have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace, thread (basically anything that comes on a spool). ***
