Red Rubber Inspirational #134 - Just Wing It


Drea is leading the Red Rubber Inspirational Challenge this week - Just Wing It.  This is one of my favorite stamp sets, called Flutter By from Red Rubber Designs.  Today I'm trying a new technique introduced by Maile Belles, a design team member from PaperTrey Ink.  
It is called Cutout Panels.  You can see her tutorial here.

For my card I stamped the images on XPress It blending cardstock for Copics using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with  Copic markers ( YR12, YR14, YR16, YR18, YG95, YG97, Y06, E09, E39).  Then I used a sponge and cloud template with Palette Reflection Blue ink to make the cloud background.  Next I cut out the panel, as detailed in Maile's tutorial and trimmed around the butterfly.  I used a strip of burnt orange Bazzill cardstock and embossed it with a Sizzix flower embossing folder to go behind the cutout panel.  Then the front card is popped up on top with dimensional tape.  

Wouldn't you like to enter this challenge using some stamps with wings?  Come join in.

This is Pot of Tea by Pickled Potpourri.  Aren't the little mice cute?  I colored my image with Copic Markers (Y00, Y02, R63, RV66, G43, G46, N3, N4, N7, C3, C7) and matted it with yellow cardstock.  The background papers are Authentique and also Catelynne by Red Rubber Designs.  I added a ribbon and bow.

Tulip by Pickled Potpourri


I think Tulip by Pickled Potpourri is such a pretty digital stamp.  It is simple, yet elegant.  It makes a pretty card for almost any occasion.  In my sample I have cut the image with Spellbinders Labels 4 and placed it over a lace die cut.  I colored it with Copic markers and used the Quik Pak Party in Pink By Red Rubber Designs for the background patterned cardstock.  Corner jewels were added for accent.

Burnin' Rubber by Pickled Potpourri



Do you have a friend who is a race car fan?  This is the perfect digital stamp set to make a card for him.  Burnin' Rubber by Pickle Potpourri makes a fun birthday card for a racer.
My card, in red, white, and black, uses a red background with some black and white checked patterned paper to accent the race flags.  I've colored the image with red Copic markers and used several shaped dies for the images.  You can find this stamp set here.

Day at the Beach by Pickled Potpourri


It is summer and time for vacation and relaxing on the beach.  This is the perfect combination of digital images to create a scene of your choice.  The digital stamp sets are Beachy Keen and Day at the Beach by Pickled Potpourri.  I colored the images with Copic markers and used some sand-looking background patterned paper, red matting for the images and cut die letters with red cardstock.  You can find these images here and here

Hunting and Camping


Today I am featuring three digital stamp sets from Pickled Potpourri. 


This first card uses all three sets, Hunting, Hunting Fowl, and Campfire. (See stamp sets below).   I've made a flit-it card and sized the images small to fit on the squares.  I colored them with chalks this time.  The paper is from my stash and I've added buttons with scrappers floss in them. The card is die cut with a Sizzix Framelit flip-it die by Stephanie Bennard.


The second card  uses Hunting and Hunting Fowl.  I embossed the background blue cardstock and cut out the images with a die before chalking them.  The ribbon and buttons accent the card. Both of these cards make nice guy cards for birthday or other occasions.





Thank you for visiting my blog.  I hope you are inspired to use your creativity.
