Farm Fresh Friday!

Hey everyone!  Time for this week’s Farm Fresh Friday challenge over at The Greeting Farm!  This week Emily has challenged us to use one of the oldest items in our stash!  What a great way to USE all the goodies we have been hoarding!

I used an old rub on sentiment that I have had for ages!  I never (or VERY rarely) use rub ons and don’t have that many of them, but they are handy.  I stamped CC Riley (I love how sassy she is!) onto X Press It blending card and colored her up with Copics, added the rub on sentiment  and then pierced around the edges before finishing her off with some amazing Parrot Green Silky Crushed Ribbon, flower and a little bling!

Paper: Echo Park (Paradise Beach), Bazzill, SU!, X-Press It  Stamp: The Greeting Farm (CC Riley)  Ink: A Muse Black Dye, Copic markers  Accessories: Parrot Green Silky Crushed Ribbon, White Hemp Cord, Prima Flower, Kaiser Sparklet.

I have finally gotten a regular schedule at work for June so I am hoping that I will be able to carve out a little more stamping time and get a routine established again.  I hope you are all having a great day and thanks for stopping by!


RCC55 Pinterest Inspiration

Hey everyone!  It is time for this week’s Ribbon Carousel Challenge and it is a great inspiration photo!  I LOVE the colors, they are the ones I want to do my stamp room. Check it out!

I find this color combo very fresh and relaxing, so I used Bubbly Fun Fhiona from Your Next Stamp as my image.  I stamped her on X Press It Blending card and colored her up with my copic markers.  I then used Liquid pearls for the bubbles to add a little texture.  I also sanded down the Coredinations cardstock to give it a little more distressed feel.  I then added some White Net Ribbon and Ivory Jute, from the Ribbon Carousel, for even more texture.

Paper: Coredinations, X Press It Blending Card  Stamps: Your Next Stamp (Bubbly Fun Fhiona)  Ink: A Muse Black Dye, Copic markers  Accessories: White Net Ribbon, Ivory Jute, Prima flower, Button, Nesties, Liquid Pearls.

That is all for me today, I have the whole day off and need to catch up on some house work and do a little stamping.  I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Farm Fresh Friday!

Hey everyone! It is time for another Farm Fresh Friday over at The Greeting Farm and it was my turn to pick this week’s challenge… STITCHING! I love the look of sewing on my cards, I think it finishes them off just perfectly.

For my card today I have used the fun Cheeky Geeky along with this months Sketch For You To Try and I love how it turned out!  I realized after I glued down the two red strips that I reversed them, I hate it when that happens! LOL  I always manage to mess something like that up.   🙂

Paper: MME Stamps: The Greeting Farm (Cheeky Geeky), Kraftin’ Kimmie sentiment Ink: A Muse, Copic markers Accessories: Glossy Accents, Prima flower, Button, Ivory Jute, Pearls.

 The last couple of week’s have been a little crazy with me back to work, but I get the entire weekend off this week!  I am so excited that I will have time to play again!  I know that this summer will be busy with all the tourists here so I plan on enjoying it while I can!  🙂

I hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

WhooHoo!!  The Ribbon Carousel is celebrating today with a BIG SALE!!!
Corinna’s sweet husband is coming home today after being being deployed for the last 8 months in Afghanistan.  We are all so very happy that he is coming home safe and sound.
We at the Ribbon Carousel are also pretty darn excited about all of the new Bazzill 100lb Smooth Card Shoppe Cardstock that is being carried in the store now!!  I am waiting for  my sampler pack (3 sheets of each color) order this week and I have to tell you I am excited!!!   I’ve fallen in LOVE with the texture free smoothness, the 28 delicious colors and the weight which will easily handle layers and embellishments without sagging.
Thanks for stopping by today….and happy shopping!!

Exciting news!!!

Hey everyone!!!  I don’t have a card to share right this second but I do have some exciting news to share this afternoon!  I have been asked to join the Ribbon Carousel design team!!!!  I am so excited to be working with all of the amazing ladies on the team and with one of my favorite embellishments!  I don’t think I could make a card without ribbon or baker’s twine or jute!

Okay, that is all for now!  I need to calm down and get the kids fed before I go make a card or two tonight!!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great night!!!

Be Naughty!

Hey everyone!  I love the sentiment I used with the new CC Riley from The Greeting Farm today, I think it is perfect for her!  lol  I really like all the pink and green on my card, it is so fun and bright!  And even with the simple layout, I still managed to use Baker’s Twine, a button, a flower and sew!

Paper: Echo Park, Bazzill  Stamps: The Greeting Farm (CC Riley), Kraftin’ Kimmie sentiment Ink: A Muse, Copic markers  Accessories: Prima Flower, MFT File Tab Die-namic, Button, Baker’s Twine.

The new job is going really well, I love the people I work with and the customers!  Everyone is really friendly so far.  The only problem is I don’t have as much time to stamp! I’m sure once I get used to the new routine I will be back to stamping more often.

I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
