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.

Thanks for stopping by!

Second Post for today
If your looking for Your Next Stamp Challenge, click here

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:

Take Flight (TIMI)

I love the size of this card.  It measures 2.50 x 5.25.

To get the card started, I stenciled the background using one of Tim Holtz Mini stencil set 7 and distress ink: Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon.

Then I stamped So Suzy Stamps Girl With Balloons using Colorbox Archival Wicked Dye Ink. Then I stamped So Suzy Stamp Take Flight sentiment using Colorbox Archival Wicked Dye Ink.

Nice, easy but totally amazing.

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.
