Rise and Shine Birthday Card

     Happy Thursday Stampers! My mom loves chickens and roosters, and has a collection of them, so I definitely had her mind with the Rise and Shine Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp from Red Rubber Designs when making her birthday card this year. I thought this kraft bag that I recycled was perfect to showcase it!


            After stamping the main image twice with permanent black ink onto white cardstock, I colored it with Distress Inks, and fussy cut the rooster on the second image. Then I mounted the image onto black cardstock with punching around the edges, and popped up the rooster over the ribbon.


          Using the same water stamping technique as my last post found here, and the same Rays of Hope Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp, I just changed the colors of my Distress Inks and tucked it behind the kraft bag. Then I stamped the sentiment onto the rays with the Sophisticated Sentiments Unmounted Rubber Stamp Set.


     All of the flowers were stamped twice, colored with Distress Inks, and layered and curled using the My Sunshine Unmounted Stamp. I love how they look against the gingham, stamped with the Gingham Background Unmounted Stamp using Palette Inks (Bordeaux, Moulin Rouge, and L'Amore Red) for an ombre look!


     I finished it off with distressed edges and machine stitching. Thanks so much for stopping by, and visit Red Rubber Designs for all of these stamps and more!
