Hippo Holiday


Last week the Stampendous Design Team were sharing Halloween projects and this week we have Christmas cards to inspire you, it's never too soon to start.  My card uses the sweet Hippo Holiday stamp and Merry Words Perfectly Clear Set.

Here's how my card was made;
  1. Stamp Hippo Holiday on white cardstock with black ink, color with colored pencils and cut out. Set aside.
  2. Stamp Believe from the Merry words set on the upper middle of a white cardstock panel with Gamma Green Ink and emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.  Stamp Believe, repeatedly on the rest of the panel.  Glue to a red card.
  3. Die cut a white circle and a red scalloped circle using the Build A Wreath Die Set, gluing the white circle onto the red scalloped circle. Glue to the card as shown.
  4. Pop up Hippo Holiday on the white circle using foam squares and apply glitter glue to the fur on his hat.
  5. Stamp sentiment from the same set as the Believe on a strip of green cardstock with VersaMark Ink and emboss with White Embossing Powder. Glue below the Hippo.
  6. Randomly glue red sequins on the card and you're done!

No Stamping Required!


This card was made for my Stamp Club challenge of making a card with dies only, no stamps. That may sound easy but when you always use stamps on your cards, it can be a challenge!  
If you don't belong to a stamp club, I recommend that you find one to join or if there isn't one, start a club of your own like I did.  It's such a joy to get together with other ladies who share the love of stamping and understand how exciting it is to buy a new glue haha!

For my card I used the Square Combo #1 OPC Die from Rubbernecker Stamps for the circles, it was run through my die cutting machine once with craft colored cardstock and you get all of these shapes shown below, to use on other projects.


The butterflies are the 2 part Butterfly #3 Die from Rubbernecker Stamps, it gives you the solid image and the intricately cut image.


The intricate image was cut out of white cardstock and the solid out of pink decorative paper.  I curved the wings of the white piece and glued only the body to the pink image so you get a 3D effect. 

I don't know what company the Hello is from but it was cut from black cardstock.

Now to assemble it, Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink was rubbed on my craft mat, spritzed with water and picked up with a wet brush.  It was then splattered on a white card.  The circles, butterflies and hello, were then glued down using Glitter Art Glue.  A strip of the same pink decorative paper as the butterfly was glued to the bottom with a strip of black and white striped paper glued to that.  To finish it off, pink Nuvo Drops were randomly added.

Daisies Shaker Card


Today's my day to be up on the Rubbernecker Blog and I'm sharing this bright and cheery shaker card. You can click on the product names and it will take you directly to that product. My card is made using the Daisies stamp, colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and the matching Daisies Die Set was used to cut it out.  Nested Rectangle Stitched Die Set was used to cut out the window.  Here's a tip- to keep your shaker embellishments from sticking to the acetate, rub the inside of the acetate with a new dryer sheet. This really helps prevent cling!!  The sentiment from Best Friends Etc was stamped on a white strip of cardstock with Onyx Black VerasFine Ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.

Terror-ific Sugar Skull


Today's card uses the Sugar Skull Stamp Set which includes the dies from Stampendous.

The images are stamped with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then die cut.  The Terror-ific banner was stamped on purple paper.  A black panel was randomly stamped with the rose using VeraMark Ink, then purple mica powder was brushed over the VersaMark.  A rag was used to wipe off the excess mica powder, this was then glued to an orange panel.  A banner die was used to cut orange and white striped decorative paper and a smaller banner cut from black card stock. The pieces were glued on using Nuvo Glue.  Crystal Micro Fine Glitter was added to the teeth using Quickie Glue.  Unfortunately, I couldn't get it to show up in the picture but it really looks great!

Christmas Blessings


I made another card using the Delicate Snow Set from Stampendous and it has a completely different look than the one I made the other day (below).


Today's card was made by stamping each of the snowflakes with VersaMark ink and embossing with white. Then the stencil that comes with the set was placed over the snowflake, covering up the areas around it and Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans Distress Inks were sponged on.
The sentiment was stamped on a white strip of cardstock with Faded Jeans ink and embossed with clear.  It was then layered onto a silver strip of paper.  The strip was then glued onto the snowflake panel, which was layered onto a silver panel and glued to a white card.
