The Ribbon Carousel & Bazzill Card Shoppe!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!
Have you tried the Bazzill Card Shoppe Card Stock yet?! 

 Bazzill has been working with its paper mills to create the perfect premium, smooth, heavy-weight cardstock that will be a sweet treat for every card-maker. Now available in 28 coordinating colors. The paper is a stout 100 lbs. and folds with a crisp edge. It won’t warp when used with markers, inks, or mists, and can handle loads of embellishments without sagging.

Did you know that we carry all 28 colors at the Ribbon Carousel store?!
The Ribbon Carousel Crewmates have fallen in love with the stuff!  

We are thrilled to be teaming up with Bazzill today to show off their amazing new card stock!  Today is National Lollipop Day so the Ribbon Carousel Crewmates have created some crafty eye candy with this theme!

After you check out the cards, head right on over to the Bazzill blog AND there you find a special COUPON for the Ribbon Carousel store!
Would you like to WIN  a sampler pack of the Bazzill Card Shoppe Card Stock?
That's 2 sheets each of all 28 colors! 
Find out how to to win at the end of this post!

For my card today, I pulled out the adorable Pure Innocence Sweet Greetings.  I stamped her onto X Press It Blending Card in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with Copic Markers.  The stamp is actually of a PI holding cotton candy, but I didn't ink that part and instead, using my Circle STAX 1 Die-Namics, cut a circle from a piece of Cotton Candy Cardstock and added glitter to the top.  I then added it to my panel with Foam Tape for dimension.

I cut her out with Rectangle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Rectangle STAX 2 Die-Namics, and used Bazzill Candy Bar Cardstock for the layer and the card base.  I also used Marshmallow for the layers, and the main panel is Cotton Candy.

The sentiment, "Life Is Sweet" was stamped onto a panel of Marshmallow Cardstock cut with the Chat Bubbles Die-Namics, and I added a border of My Favorite Felt in Puff Cloud White with the Simply Scallops Medium Die-Namics.  Here is a closeup of this cutie.

All of the patterned paper is Sweet Day from Echo Park Papers and I added some DELISH Pink V Striped Twill Ribbon and Cotton Candy Divine Twine.

On the inside I added another panel of Cotton Candy and more layers of Marshmallow and Candy Bar, and stamped another sentiment in Sugar Fresh Ink.

Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my card:
