Paris Collage Card

     Bonjour! The French flag inspired the birthday card that I made for my son, who shares my love of France, featuring the Paris CollageTriomphe Collage, and Ancient Map Rubber Stamps from Red Rubber Designs.

          The stamping was done with permanent black ink, onto torn pieces of white tissue paper, layered, and made into a collage. Then I used TCW Mini Raven Mosaic stencil with white gesso for some texture. Once dry, I taped off the inner lines, and applied Distress Spray Stains (Blueprint Sketch and Candied Apple Red) to the outside edges.

     After applying white gesso to Tim Holtz' Numbered Stencil, and waiting for it to dry, I covered it with Emerald Creek (Hammered Metal) embossing powder, which I also used along the edges of the black cardstock underneath.

     Finally, I finished it up with some hand-stitching in blue, white, and red. Vive la France!

Love You Card

     February is the month of love, and the I Heart You Unmounted Rubber Stamp from Red Rubber Designs, is perfect for all of your Valentine's projects, including weddings and anniversaries! I used the largest heart stamp on the back of the pocket, and cut it out, revealing the red cardstock with the sentiment. Then I hand-stitched around the heart, and machine-stitched around the grey pocket, after embossing it with the Background Stripes Stamp.

     To mimic a love note coming out of the pocket, I embossed a piece of white cardstock with the Vintage Script Cling Mounted Stamp, anchored by three hearts from the I Heart You Set.

     Finally, I embossed an old zipper, attached to a couple of 6" strips of red cardstock, embossed with the Victorian Borders Cling Mounted Stamp.

        Here's the finished card that I made for my husband.

Have a wonderful week and Valentine's Day!

Holly Swirls Card Set

     Happy Holidays! Drea here with a set of Christmas Cards featuring the Holly Swirls Unmounted Rubber Stamp from Red Rubber Designs! Here's four of the eleven that I made, mounted onto silver cardstock.

     Each background was made unique and one of a kind with some salt thrown onto white cardstock, and sprinked with LSG Magicals and water. The card below shows a heavier use of the salt, that I brushed off after drying.

     With so much color, I went with white embossing powder along the edges and punchwork, and to stamp the Holly Swirls and sentiment for a snowy, frosty look. 

    Then I used a paintbrush with my Magicals to paint the holly and leaves, which really brought out the design. 

     The inside was stamped with the Christmas Blessings Unmounted Rubber Stamp Set using Memento (Lady Bug) Ink, and my wish to you as well. 

     Thanks for stopping by, and shop Red Rubber Designs for a great variety of Winter & Christmas Stamps

Vintage Snowflakes for a Merry Christmas

Hello!  Angie here to share a fun Christmas card with you!!  For today's project, I stamped the snowflake trio image from the Vintage Santa Unmounted Stamp set from Red Rubber Designs.  For the next step, I heat embossed the snowflakes with white embossing powder.  To finish off the background I watercolored with Distress Inks.  Once dry, I die cut the layer with a scallop border die and stamped one of the sentiments from the Vintage Santa stamp set on the card base.

The Vintage Santa Stamp set is so versatile with a large Santa image, the snowflake trio, a script image and three sentiments!  

Thanks for looking and stop by the Red Rubber Designs Online store for beautifully designed Winter and Christmas Cling Mount stamps and Christmas Unmounted stamps.

Poinsettia Birthday Card

     Hello Stampers! With the Sophisticated Sentiments Unmounted Stamp Set from Red Rubber Designs, you'll have a sentiment for all of your holiday cards, including any upcoming December birthdays!

     To create the festive red background, I applied many layers of Candied Apple Distress Ink with water onto white cardstock, waiting for each layer to dry before adding the next. Then I used white embossing powder on the Poinsettia and rest of the stamping.

     I love the border around the edges, created with the Background Soup Unmounted Rubber Stamp Set!

     A strip of sheer ribbon, some buttons, and machine stitching to finish up this birthday card, that could easily become a holiday card by simply changing the sentiment.
