Blog Hop {Market Street Stamps and Ribbon Carousel}


If you are hopping along with Market Street Stamps and Ribbon Carousel today - you are in the right place! Welcome!
If you aren't already a follower, I'd love to have you follow my blog!

If you are one of my regular readers: Thanks for coming back! I love having you! Please join along in the hop - you can find out more on either the Market Street Stamps blog or the Ribbon Carousel blog.

Be sure to join in on the fun as Market Street Stamps is giving away TWO $25 gift certificates and Ribbon Carousel is giving away a newly released ribbon carousel.



For my card I started by stamping the peacock image (drawn by me!) from the Birds of a Feather set from Market Street Stamps in Tuxedo Black ink. I added a bit of color with my Copic markers and then cut it to a simple tag shape. I then tied off the top of the tag with a little bow of The Twinery's Pink Sorbet twine.

For the base of my card, I combined my patterned papers with some Pink Salmon Vintage Seam Binding and added a button threaded with The Twinery's Buttercream twine.


If you are the "sketchy" type, here is the sketch I created and used for my card:
