{RCC66} Keep it Cool

Hey there!! I am this weeks hostess over at the Ribbon Carousel and I challenge you to make a summer themed project! OMGosh- soooooo sad that it's coming to an end sooner than we think:( But hopefully the RC crew can draw out those lazy days of summer for just a little while longer!!!

I used this weeks sketch from My Favorite Things, along with one of their sweet PI images, Sprinkler Girl. The sentiment is stamped on the Say What? dienamic.  I did something new here as well. I stamped the little girl in Memento Toffee Crunch, rather than the usual black I use. You can still colour with copics, as all Memento inks are alcohol friendly:) Makes the whole card look a little bit softer, and with the pastelly colours, I thought black ink might be a bit too harsh. I used some jumbo silver brads (michaels) and jillibean soup Easter paper!! The little house strip is supposed to be chicken coops I think, but I thought that they kind of looked like raised beachhouses! The cardstock is Bazzill Card Shoppe  (Cotton Candy and Robins Egg). The silver squiggley clip is from my stash, but RC is now selling them to keep our favorite spiral clip junkie, Jessie, happy;) You can see the ones we have available HERE. I used some new Divine Twine in Peach and pink swiss dot satin ribbon.

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). ***

We'd love for you to join us this week! Here are the details:
  • Make your NEW creation following the ribbon carousel challenge of the week. Any submissions made prior to the challenge date will be deleted. Be sure to include some type of ribbon, twine, hemp, lace....basically, anything that comes on a spool.
  • Load your creation up onto your blog or a public viewing forum like Splitcoast Stampers, (use the keyword RCC66) with a direct link back to THIS post. Including the challenge graphic isn't a requirement, but sure is appreciated! (A participant of our very first challenge didn't link back or mention our challenge and couldn't be named Top Spool, so don't let that happen to you!)
  • Link up your creation using the Inlinkz button at the bottom of this post. Your image may take a little while to pop up, but don't worry, it will appear shortly.
  • Come back the Friday after the challenge ends to see if YOU are a Top Spool!
