Rubber Dance Stamp February 2017 Theme Challenge

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

The theme is “Lots of Layers”!  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:

love-rds

I tried to keep my tag pretty simple since that is more my style, but I also wanted to play around with some mixed media.

Are you asking yourself, where are the layers?  I was hoping that you would ask.

Here you go:

  1. I add gesso on the top of the tag and let it dry.
  2. Then I blended Distressed Ink Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Seedless Preserve.
  3. After that, I used Rubber Dance Stamps Round in Circles stamped paired with StazOn Jet Black Ink to stamp the circles.
  4. Then I used the Rubber Dance Stamps Think Again stamp set to stamp the sentiment with the StazOn Ink.
  5.  To finish the tag off, I colored the Crinkle Ribbon with Mustard Seed reinker and added it to the tag.

Thats four layers!!! Yayyy!

What do you think? Please let me know below. I would love to hear from you.

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!!!

You have until February 28, 2017, midnight Central European Time.  Which is 6:00 PM, February 27, 2017!! Please pay attention to this time. Here in the US is a day behind Norway!

CASology 136 – Basket and Giveaway!

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!! We are back again with another Cue Card for you!!

So this cue word seems easy, right?  Well not so easy.  I had nothing, nothing in my stash that screamed “Basket”.  I search all of my retired stamps and my new stamps that haven’t been touch yet and I couldn’t find anything with a basket.

Then I remember, the light bulb went off, I received some new stamps for an upcoming release from So Suzy Stamps and guess what stamp was in that package.  Yes, a basket of apples!!  I was super excited.  I’m still in the race with my fellow DT members!!

Take a look at my card:

You're A Good Apple2

Yes, this basket of apples saved the day for me.  To create this card was super easy minus the coloring.

1. I cut my card base to an A2 size card (4.25 x. 5.50). I cut a piece of Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather Patten Paper and adhered it to the front of my card base.

2. I used My Favorite Things Die-namics Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX die to cut out a piece of white cardstock.

3. I stamped my image and colored it in with Copic Markers; W4, Y13, Y15, Y19, E31, E33, E35, E37, R22 R24 and N5.

4. I stamped my sentiment from Lawn Fawn Good Teacher stamp set.

5. I adhered the white panel to the front of my card base with foam adhesive.

6. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to my apples and belly ban on my basket.

That was it!  Nice and easy thanks to So Suzy Stamps!!  So since her basket of apples saved the day for me.

I’m doing a giveaway!!!!  Two lucky winners will win a pre-release Basket of Apples stamp!
