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.

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!

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.

Beautiful Berries Scrapbook Layout

     Welcome back Stampers! With some mixed media and stamps from Red Rubber Designs, I created this tag and background page, and used up a lot of my old embellishments and stickers in the process. After coating a kraft tag with white gesso, I added a strip of gingham stamped with Abandoned Coral and Ripe Persimmon Distress Inks onto white cardstock using the Gingham Background Unmounted Rubber Stamp. Then I hand-stitched the top, and placed the photo below it, framed with some fibers.

 

     Because the round alpha stickers yellowed with age, I stuck them onto some white cardstock colored with LSG Sprays and Magicals, and cut around them. Then I placed some old MME Enamel Dots along the scallops.


     The background paper started with the grid stamped with the Vintage Background Unmounted Rubber Stamp using permanent black ink. Then I covered it with white gesso, added my Sprays and Magicals,  and stamped the "berries" with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink using the dots from the Build-A-Background Rubber Stamp Set.


      Along the right, I applied white gesso to a stencil, and used up some more old product with the white scallop strip. Then I stamped the flowers and leaves onto white cardstock with the Dotty Flowers Unmounted Rubber Stamp, using Abandoned Coral, Ripe Persimmon, and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.
     

     Finally, I outlined the background paper with some hand-stitching, and used Picket Fence Distress Ink along the orange scallops.

Medallions Tag

     Happy Thursday! This week I have a mixed media tag to share with you, featuring the Mini Medallions Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp, and the Medallions, For Everything, and Be Happiness Unmounted Rubber Stamps from Red Rubber Designs!


        I started with white gesso that I coated a Ranger Manila Tag with, and to the TCW stencil in the center. Once dry, I used Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Wild Honey, and Vintage Photo Distress Spray Stains with a light spritz of water on my tag, and on a separate sheet of white cardstock for the medallions.

       When that dried, I re-applied my stencil to the tag to add Prima's Metallique Wax (Vintage Gold and Rich Copper) over the gesso. Then I embossed the design along the top and bottom in copper with the For Everything Unmounted Stamp. Using the cardstock that I previously sprayed, I embossed the Medallions Stamp onto it, fussy-cutting, and layering it three times to make a flower. 


     I used three of the Mini Medallions, also embossed in copper, and popped two of them up with foam dots. 


          The phrase was stamped in black with the Be Happiness Unmounted Rubber Stamp onto a piece of torn vellum inked along the edges with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. Then I scattered and  glued some blue sequins along the tag.


     I finished off the top with some fibers and beads that I strung together. 


     The result is this fun tag with copper accents and a bohemian vibe!
