Father's Day Card

     My dad has always attracted animals of all kinds, but especially birds, so I made him this card featuring the See Beauty cling mount rubber stamp set from Red Rubber Designs, getting a head start on Father's Day!


     I stamped and layered the duck image with white and kraft cardstock, coloring it with Distress Inks, and spraying the background of the kraft cardstock with some brown sprays. Then I stamped some trees using the Tree Silhouettes cling mount rubber stamp set, going over the trunks and branches with a brown marker.

     I was very pleased with the piece where I stamped my sentiment using the Contemporary Greetings unmounted rubber stamp set, and mixing green and brown Magicals to create my background, which gave it some texture as well. I also used brown Magicals and sprays added to some clear gesso, to mask a strip of drywall tape along the bottom.



So get started on your Father's Day cards, and find your perfect image at Red Rubber Designs!

Floral Blessing


Hello, friends!  Angie here with part II of my Floral Collage project!  I had so much fun creating the blue sequin card with the mini gardenia image a couple of weeks ago, I couldn't wait to create with the second stamp in the  Floral Collage Cling Mount stamp set from Red Rubber Designs

This time, I chose accents in pink and a sentiment from Joyful Notes.

I once again I had fun adding splatters with So Splattered Cling Mount stamp set.

I chose pearls to go with the doily for an extra touch of femininity....and well, I don't have sequins to match the flower!   

Just for fun I am adding the photo of my first card created with the Floral Collage Cling Mount stamp set and I am including the list of stamps used in both projects.


Until next time, happy stamping!

Happy Mother's Day Card

     What mother doesn't like to receive flowers for Mother's Day? By using the Charcoal Flowers stamp from Red Rubber Designs, you can give her flowers that will last a lifetime!





     I chose the rose stamp, colored them with Distress Inks, and tied them up with some ribbon on this tag that I added to my card. The background of the tag was stamped with the Speckle Background stamp, and raised up with some pop dots for some dimension. For the sentiment I used the Contemporary Greetings stamp along the bottom of the card.





     The background squares were also colored with Distress Inks, cut with decorative scissors, and machine stitched around the edges. I added some dots onto the yellow squares with a stencil and gesso. To the green squares, I used water with the Beauty Of A Woman Background stamp to create a softer look with the script.



     Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful day!

Floral Hello


Hello! Here in Georgia winter is behind us and everything is blooming, so in celebration I decided to feature one of the images included in the sweet Floral Collage Cling Mount stamp set from Red Rubber Designs.  I had fun coloring the Gardenia with hints of gray for shading.  


I absolutely love the splatter look on cards so I reached for the So Splattered Cling Mount stamp set and used two of the splatter stamps for the background.

I chose a sentiment from the Say Hello unmounted stamp set.  This set has nine mix & match stamps that coordinate to create two-part sentiments.  For my project, I wanted just the "Hello!" portion of the sentiment so I stamped and die cut the sentiment then tucked the "say" beneath the flower image, easy peasy no masking required!


That's it for me this week now let's take one more look at the Red Rubber Designs stamp sets featured on my project:

Somebunny's Thinking Card

     Just in time for Easter, I created this card with a tag featuring the adorable Somebunny's Thinking stamp from Red Rubber Designs! Such cute bunnies, and they were so fun to color with my Distress Inks, which I also used for the tag, lilac flowers, sentiment, and to color the lace and chipboard banners.



     Recycling a piece of cardboard, I started by spraying it with some black, brown, and copper mists to mimic rust. Then I applied a couple of Ranger embossing powders for some texture, which I also used on the flower center brads, the gromlet on the tag, and the grass embossed with the Mountain Scenery stamp. I distressed all of my paper edges, including the flowers which I doubled up, using the Happily Grateful and Pressed Flowers stamps. The chipboard banner pieces were covered with gesso, and colored with Distress Inks, where I extended the stamped "you" onto both pieces. The background of the tag was stenciled with white gesso dots, and finished with machine stitching around the edges.
