Bubbles and Flowers


Hi my crafty friends, I'm up on the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog this week with a card made mostly with dies but I had to throw in at least one stamp, so I stamped a sentiment.   I used the  Bubbles Die as the background focal point in white cardstock.  The Mixable Flower Stack Die was used to cut out pink sparkle paper.  The sentiment from the Best Friends Etc set was stamped in black, embossed with clear embossing powder.  A pink rhinestone was used on the paper strip for the sentiment to tie into the pink flowers.

Bloom Of Good Health



Did you know flu season is right around the corner?  So now is a good time to make a few get well soon cards to have on hand.  Today I have a card with a background made using the Round Doily Metal Stencil from Stampendous.  It was sponged with green Distress Inks then stamped with In the Bloom  also from Stampendous using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  A strip of Washi Tape was added down the side, then the panel was layered onto a larger black panel and glued to a white card.

Spooky Hollow


Be sure to mark your calenders for the Whimsy Stamps 31 Nights of Halloween where they'll be sharing a Halloween card a day! I'll be posting on October 9th and the 21st, you'll want to stop bye, I may have a prize to give away on one of those days :)



I'm excited to be a Guest Designer for Whimsy Stamps this Halloween season!  They have a wide variety of Halloween stamps to choose from, spooky, funny, and cute.  My first card uses the Sleepy Hollow Clear Stamp Set and the Sleepy Hollow Die Set, this one is definitely spooky!  




Here's how I made my card;
1.  The pumpkin scarecrow was stamped with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink, embossed with clear embossing powder and die cut.
2.  The sign was stamped on black cardstock with VersaMark Ink, embossed with white embossing powder.  Then the words were stamped on the sign and embossed, same as above.  Cut out.
3.  The tree was diecut from black cardstock, Spooky was diecut from purple cardstock and set aside.
4.  A watercolor panel was made by smooshing a watercolor paper panel into Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon Distress Inks on a craft mat.
5.  Once dry the watercolor panel was glued to a purple panel then onto a black card.
6.  The diecut pieces and the sign were glued to the panel, then a strip of layered paper was glued at the bottom and the pumpkin scarecrow was glued on.

Honey Doo Crafts New Release


Today I have another card made with Honey Doo Crafts New Release, Fleur Set.  These flowers and leaves are so pretty and you can arrange them so many ways. 

The background was made by randomly stamping watercolor paper with flowers and leaves from the set with VersaMark Ink and embossing with white embossing powder.  Then the Direct to Paper technique was used by rubbing Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans Distress Inks directly over the embossed background.  Water was spritzed on the inks so they blend, this was set aside to dry.  A flower and two leaves were stamped with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink, embossed with clear and colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  These were cut out, the flower petals were curled and glued to a black circle.  White dots were added around the flower and the circle was glued to the watercolored panel, this was layered onto a black panel and glued to a white card.  A Sentiment was stamped and embossed on black paper, then glued to the bottom of the card.

Owl Be Home Christmas


This week the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing cards made with Cling Stamp and Die Sets.  The stamp and die set I used is Owl Be Home For Christmas.
The owl was colored with watercolor pencils, die cut using the included die and glued onto the branch, that was also colored with watercolor pencils and Sparkle Puff Embossing Powder was sprinkled on the branch to give a snow effect.
To spotlight the owl, a blue circle frame was placed over him and a strip of glitter washi tape was placed underneath. 
The sentiment from the set was stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder, layered onto a green panel and popped up.  
Stop by the Stampendous website and see what the other Designers have for you this week.  (Link below)

Coffee Good Idea


Today's card is for my coffee loving friends. Stamps are from Rubbernecker Stamps and I used the coffee cup from the Coffee Set, stamped it in black and embossed with clear.  They were then colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and die cut using the Nested Circle Stitch Die Set.  A kraft color panel was randomly stamped the coffee stamp from the set using Tea Dye ink.  This was glued to a white card with a strip of black paper on the left side.  The die cut coffee cups were glued to the card and set aside.  The sentiment from the set was stamped on a white panel, glued to a larger black panel and popped up on the card.  Brown sequins were randomly glued to the card.
