Ribbon Carousel meets Totally Stampalicious!!

If you are joining me from Lisa Somerville's Blog you are on the right track! If you are just joining me by accident - well - Hello!! Welcome to the Ribbon Carousel/Totally Stampalicious Blog Hop!





The talented Ribbon Carousel Crewmates are teaming up with the Design Team from Totally Stampalicious  to bring you a blog hop jam packed with crafty eye candy!  We will be helping to show off Totally Stampalicious' September release of stamps AND some ribbon and twine from the Ribbon Carousel, of course! 


Now, lets talk prizes! 

The Ribbon Carousel will be giving away a $20 gift certificate to the Ribbon Carousel Store and Totally Stampalicious will be giving away their 4 newly release September stamp sets!  Enjoy the hop and be sure to leave some blog love along your way to be eligible for the prizes!  Winners will be announced Saturday night at 8:00 PM EST.

Let's get started!

I have used two of our four new releases - Balloon Boy Brat and Balloon Girl Brat and both are using the delicious Ribbon Carousel ribbon!!


I stamped Balloon Boy Brat once on Copic Xpress cardstock and again on my patterned paper and pieced the patterned paper onto the balloon. Then, I coloured the whole image, patterned paper and all, with my copics adding some shading here and there.

I cut him out and popped him up onto my card background.....the lovely orange ribbon was tied at the side since I didn't want a huge bow on a masculine card.....my little thing.....

On my next card, I used the same layout, and just changed up the stamp, patterned paper and the ribbon. 


Of course, I added some extra bling on Balloon Brat Girl - because I LOVE bling!!

Now, as you can see - you should be hopping on to Els Brige's Blog - and I know there is loveliness over there!!
