MFTWSC91-Li'l Pumpkin

Hey everyone, and happy Wednesday!! That means it is time for another Wednesday Stamp Club challenge from My Favorite Things! It's MY favorite sketch challenge!

For my card this week, I used the super cute Pure Innocence Li'l Pumpkin set. I stamped her on X-Press It Blending card, and some yummy Lilybee Designs paper, and colored her with Copics. Her dress was paper pieced with the Lilybee Designs paper. My cardstock colors are Hot Fudge, Sweet Tooth, Bravo Burgundy(SU), and More Mustard(SU). For my background, I used the Open Bracket Border Die-namics and on the panel under the main image, I used the First Place Award Die-namics. To finish, I embellished with some Michael's brads and Hot Fudge Grosgrain.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:

Helmar/Ribbon Carousel Blog Hop

Today the Ribbon Carousel Crewmates are teaming up with the designers from Helmar to bring you a blog hop jam packed with crafty goodness!   We carry many Helmar products in the Ribbon Carousel Shop.  They are our go-to-company for adhesives! 

Helmar USA Inc began in late 2009 initially setup to distribute Helmar branded product manufactured by Helmar Australia and to better service and expand our existing US customer base. It was located in San Diego, California. Whilst the business grew steadily and slowly it wasn't the ideal location for our business to continue to grow.
2012 has seen some major changes already this year for Helmar USA Inc. and those positive changes will continue. In the interests of moving forward and enabling the business to grow from strength to strength, relocation and a change in ownership became inevitable.
In June 2012 Helmar USA Inc. was relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina. Now with a much larger warehouse to allow for future expansion and also located close to major transport links, supply to our customers and business growth will be much more efficient.
Another major postive change we have made is to expand our design team. Headed by Erika Taylor the changes implemented so far have been refreshing and inspiring. The range of product education & projects available through various media is outstanding. We truly have very talented group of designers and are so excited to be working with some of the best companies as preferred partners, in the industry.

Now, lets talk prizes!   

Hop along with us today and leave some blog love for our Ribbon Carousel Crewmates and the Helmar designers to be eligible to win one of the 2 prizes up for grabs!  

The Helmar prize is a complete pack of Zapdots (12 packs) including clear, black and white in circles and squares, in both the large and small sizes! 

The other prize up for grabs is a $20 gift certificate to the Ribbon Carousel Store

Let's get to it!! 

For my card today, I used the super cute Pumpkin Patch Girl set from the My Favorite Things Pure Innocence line. I stamped her on X-Press It blending card, and some Lilybee Designs Autumn Spice paper. My paper layers were cut out with the Fishtail Flag Stax Die-namics. I used Michael's brads and some Brown Jute Twine from the Ribbon Carousel. My cardstock colors are Bucakroo Blue, Orange Fizz, Sweet Tooth, and Hot Fudge. I used the Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive to put together all the layers on my card, except the main image. I love that kind of adhesive runner. I also used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch.

Here are the Die-namics I have used:
