RCC48 Hopping with Your Next Stamp

This week we’re hopping with our sponsor, Your Next Stamp’s Designers to bring you TONS of inspiration using this week’s challenge sketch and the adorable stamps from YNS!  Our fabulous designer, Debbie Carriere, has provided both teams, AND YOU, with a fun sketch to play with this week.



I fell in love with Your Next Stamp a couple of months ago when I was the Guest Designer at Sketch for You to Try (YNS was our sponsor), so I was really excited when I found out we'd be pairing up with them for this challenge.


I LOVE this stamp!!! It's called "Mother Hen" and it also has an amazing sentiment that it can be paired with.  I stamped the image with Versafine Onyx Black and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then watercolored the image with Tombow Markers.  The DP is from one of the new My Mind's Eye lines called "Fiddlesticks" that I paired with  Black Jute Twine from the Ribbon Carousel. 
We are excited to have Your Next Stamp as our sponsor this week!  Your Next Stamp offers a wonderful variety of fun and whimsical rubber stamps and dies.  Karen is offering up a discount to all of the players here at The Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog!  Thanks so much Karen!! 

Believe me when I say you'll spend quite awhile checking out YNS. 
The Challenge: Use the sketch above and enter your card at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog by next Monday at 11:59pm EST.  Details on the blog.
The Blog Hop : Visit each of the designers below.  Leave a comment on each blog. End at the Ribbon Carousel blog and enter your name in the Inlinkz! You have until Friday 11:59pm EST to complete the hop.  Winners will be announced on Saturday! 
 What can I win if I hop?: One (1) $25 gift certificate from Ribbon Carousel or One (1) $10 gift certificate from Your Next Stamp. 
Here are the designers participating!  Good luck and enjoy the hop! (It's an all-star line-up if I do say so myself).
