Rubber Dance Stamp March 2017 Theme Challenge

Hello everyone!! I’m here today with the Rubber Dance Stamp Theme Challenge!!

The theme is “Everything Spring”!  All you have to do is create a piece of work that has a lot of layers.

Check out what I created to inspire you:

I have to admit, I’m having fun playing with a little mixed media!!  You are free to create and not worry about mistakes.  Totally awesome.

Here is how I created these cards:

  1. Cut the Bristol cardstock to 3.25 by 10, scored at 5.50.
  2. Add some Koi watercolor to your Gel Press Plate
  3. Add more color if you need to. 
  4. Once you have all of the colors you want, place your cardstock on top of the gel press plate
  5. Take your time and lift the cardstock to reveal the fun watercolor patterns.
  6. When the watercolor dries, stamp Rubber Dance Stamps Textured Flowers randomly on the card front.
  7. To add more texture to the card front, stamp the smaller textured stamps randomly around the flowers.
  8. To finish the card off, round the bottom corners using the Tab Punch Board.

Super simple and easy!!

The winner will win five fabulous stamps fromRubber Dance Stamp!! Wait, if the winner used stamps from Rubber Dance Stamp, they will winner another five stamps! That’s a total of 10 stamps!! Wow!!!

{Clean and Simple} CASology – Foliage

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

While I was at Creativation this year, I stopped by Waffle Flowers booth and fell in love with their flower dies!!  I knew I had to collet them all and I did.

Today I’m using the Waffle Flower Crafts Magical Flower die to represent “Foliage”!

I used Distress Oxides Cracked Pistachio, Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade to add color to the flowers.

Then I used foam tape to adhere the flower to the card front.

Once the die was in placed, I used the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment from Sweet Stamp Shop Encourage stamp set on the card front.

To finish the card off, I used We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board to round three of the card’s corners.

Nice and Easy.

What do you think?

Take a look at my card:

welcome-cas

Creating this card was so super simple.  I stamped each flower and stem from the stamp set using the different color inks.  Then I used the scripted letters to create the sentiment.  Nothing to it.

When I bought this stamp set I had no idea our former CASology teammate May Park design this set!!  I totally love her designs.

Ink Blending – Rubber Dance Stamps

Hello everyone!!  Guess what?  Bibi from Rubber Dance Stamps asked me to Guest Design for her this month!!  If you could see me jumping up and down!!  Yes, I was down right excited.

I met Bibi a couple months back when she sponsored a challenge for one of my challenge teams. I commented on her pretty giraffe stamp and then when she asked if I would guest design I was excited.

Rubber Dance Stamp is a home based, one women show stamp company located on the south-east coast of Norway!! Bibi Lindahl is the owner!

The stamps are red rubber of course and you can buy them mounted or unmounted. The style of the stamps are artsy and somewhat grungy.  I can see them being used a lot for mixed media.  That doesn’t mean you can’t used them for clean and simple style cards, because you can.  I have many times. LOL!!

Today’s card isn’t clean and simple at all.  I’m playing along with Rubber Dance Stamps blog challenge today.

Here is a sneak peek of my card:

I hope to see you there, please leave a comment and let me know what you think of my card. I also hope you play along with the Rubber Dance Stamps blog challenge.

The Ton’s Fall 2016 Release Blog Hop

Hello everyone!!!  I’m excited today. I was asked again to participate in The Ton’s Fall 2016 Release Blog Hop!! Yayyyy!!

the-ton

If you arrived here from the talented Janette blog then you are on the right track.  If you arrived here on your own, you will want to start at the beginning, The Ton blog, as to not miss any of the amazing projects!

The Ton has 23 new stamps for their Fall 2016 Release (18 clear stamps, 5 rubber cling) which include the Christmas Poinsettia set – a mini 2×3 stamp set which will be included in all orders over $100 (before shipping and taxes).  All new release products (stamps, gilding) are available now!

Lets jump in:

For my first card I used the Holiday Border Background stamp and I love it.  Such a pretty border stamp and the possibilities are endless.

holiday-wishes-black

I used red embossing power but it didn’t show up red because of the black cardstock. The white specs represents falling snow, in a very subtle way.

holiday-wishes-white

I created two cards to show off how the stamp looks on white and black cardstock.  Totally beautiful.

For my second card I used the Mistletoe Kisses sentiment stamp set.  Super cute sentiments that you can use on any Christmas cards.

merry-and-bright

Watercoloring is my favorite medium and I wanted to showcase the sentiment by creating a non-traditional Christmas card.

This sentiment is so fitting for the watercolored background.

Now what’s a blog hop without a giveaway!

Coloring a Stamped Image: CS Take It Make It Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge for the month of September.

This month’s theme is Take a Stamp!!  That means take any stamp and create something, anything goes!! Now if that isn’t easy, I’m not sure what is!!

Take a look at my card:

Happy Thougts (TIMI)

This beautiful stamp set called Loving Mom from Kennedy Grace Creations whom I found on Instagram.  I love how life-like these flowers look, so I had to color them.

I stamped each of the flowers using Colorbox Archival Wick Dye Ink and colored each of the flowers with Tombow Recycle Color Pencils.

With these pencils, its so easy to blend colors.  They create such vibrant colors. Adding the white gel pen dots are a super fun addition that makes the flower petals stand out.

Super easy and relaxing to make!!

Sooooo, what do you think? Please let me know below.

Prizes:

We have two prizes to offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for September is: Visible Image.
