Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a special feature that will show you how to work with Prima Rub-ons and Deco Foil.

I usually run this feature on Instagram and decided that I need to share these feature here as well.  FullSizeRender (68)

Did You Know Series!

I’m back again this week with the same product that I talked about last month.

It’s the @primamarketinginc Christina Adolph Adhesive Rub-Ons! I can’t get enough of these rub-ons!! You can do so much with them.

1. I showed you how to use foil with them last month and this past Saturday.
2. Yesterday, I show you how to use them with embossing powder.
3. Today, I’m going to show you what they look like on top of a watercolor panel using all of the goodies you see above!

The shine is amazing!!  No stamping required!! These cards were done in 6 mins tops. The watercolor was heat set.

Here are some closeups:

Note: you have to rub just a little bit harder since the watercolor paper has some tooth!

I created a video to show you how I used the rub-ons with foil to create the purple card above.

Any questions?  Let me know below!!

I just love these gift cards from Starbucks.  They are such a great source of inspiration for me. It screamed So Suzy card!!  LOL!!

Here is how I created this card:

  1. I used Create a Smile snowflake stencil and I used Versamark ink and stamped on top of the stencil.
  2. Then I sprinkled Hero Arts White Embossing powder on top and heat set the  snowflakes.
  3. I allowed the paper to cool down, then I stamped the Thank you So Suzy Stamp with Versamark ink and sprinkled Hero Arts Liquid Platinum Embossing and heat set it.

Super simple and easy to replicate.

Take a look at the color combo:

YNScolor-20

 

 

Once again I choose to go with the sketch!!  Take a look at my card:

Thank you so mush (YNS)

 

YNS: Plant Some Kindness, Teal Gumdrops

Other Supplies: Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather, Copic Markers, My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink, Clear Wink of Stella, Foam Tape

I have to say this was a hard sketch for me.  I couldn’t figure out what to do or what stamp set I wanted to use.

So I decided to go with a stamp set that I haven’t used yet.

This card was easy to create.  I simply cut my cardstock and pattern paper to different size and adhered them to the card base.

I stamped my image using MFT Hybrid Black Ink and colored the images with some Copic markers: Y06, R29, G17E25, E31.

I pop the stamped panel up with foam tape.

I add three gumdrops to the bottom right corner.

So are you ready for the new challenge?

You have until August 20th at midnight EST to play along and submit your project on the YNS Blog post.  One random participant will win a $15 gift certificate to the Your Next Stamp Store.  If YNS stamps or dies are the focal point then the winner receives and additional $5 gift certificate fro a total of $20.  The winner will be announced on the YNS Blog the Sunday after the challenge closes.

Plant Some Kindnessteal 2 gumdrops Sweater Weather Petite Paper Pack Copic Markers MFT Hybrid Black Ink3M Double Coated Foam Tape Wink of Stella clear
