Flower Bet by Red Rubber Designs


Today I am showing a project I made with the Flower Bet alphabet stamp set by Red Rubber Designs.  This is a beautiful alphabet set with lots of possibilities.  My project is a framed piece of home decor.  The background paper is Genevieve.  Each letter was stamped separately on white cardstock with purple pigment ink, embossed with clear embossing powder and a heat tool.  Then I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Big Scalloped Squares to cut them out.  I intended to leave the letters separate, but they did not fit my frame so I had to slightly overlap them.  This could be stood on an easle, as shown, or hung on the wall.  Hope you like it.  Maybe it gives you an idea of something to do with alpha stamps.

Thanks for looking at my blog today.  Blessings to you!

Little Miss Muffet Challenge - Tags or Gifts



Welcome to another Little Miss Muffet challenge.  This one is for tags or gifts.  I've combined the two to make a gift with a tag from one of the new releases called Snowballs.  He's a cute little winter boy.  Colored blue like the snowball candy, he makes a fun tag.  

Here's a close up of the image.  The sentiment is computer generated.

Supplies:
Copics (BG01, BG05, BG07, BG09, YG03, YG07, YG09, E00, E01, E13, E15, C2, C3, C5, C7)
White Liquid Applique for snowballs
Two blue ribbons
Two blue cardstocks
hole punch
jar and candy 

Please join us for the tags or gifts challenge.  You may use any stamp, but if you use a Little Miss Muffet stamp, anything goes and you don't have to follow the challenge.  See details of the challenge and enter on the LMM Blog.

This is my last post as a Guest Designer for Little Miss Muffet for the months of October and November.  They have very cute stamps - both rubber and digis, a great design team, and a fabulous owner.  It has been a joy to be a part of their team during these months.

Christmas Fun Tumbled Marble Tiles gift


Christmas Fun is the stamp set I used to make these tumbled marble coasters.  I've shown coasters before, and they are one of my favorite things to make for gifts.  I stamped the images with Stazon Black ink, colored them in with Fabrico Markers and then heat set them with a Heat Tool.  The white on Santa and the stocking is Stazon white re-inker.  The tiles are sprayed lightly with a Krylon Clear Mat Finish.  A cork coaster is glued to the back of each coaster.

Twinkle in the Eye Blog Hop and Contest



It's November and we have a month of "Holidays in Winter" stamps at Red Rubber Designs.  Twinkle in the Eye is our Spotlight Stamp,  and you can get it for 40% off this month.  I love this vintage collage stamp.  

I've colored the image with Copic markers and sponged Reflection Blue Palette Ink on the background.  Then I sprayed the image with Sparkle Shimmer Spray to make it glisten.

The background paper is Catelyn Patterned Cardstock.  And I've used black cardstock for matting of both the stamp and the sentiment.  The sentiment is from the RRD stamp set, Joy and Peace.



The white scalloped edge is cut with with a Creative Memories Scallop edger and then embossed with a Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing Folder.  
Copics used:  R89, R85, E01, E11, E13, E15, G46, B00, B37, N4

CDAC Progressive Challenge - Rose Teapot

 I made this card for the current CDAC Progressive Challenge.  In fact, my card was selected as a Star on the CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge.  The digi stamp is Rose Teapot  from Priscilla Styles Store.  For the challenge, she also provided us with a matching freebie cup.  I love these digis.  They make such an elegant card, which I will use for a special friend's birthday.  

The background paper I've used is More Mimi from Red Rubber Designs.  I cut out the teapot and cups and placed them over a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares die cut.  Real lace is also in the background under the image, and I added pearls to accent it.  

Copics for coloring:  YG41, YG45, R81, R83, R85, R59, E0000, E000, E00, E01, C3, C5.

Little Miss Muffet- "Inspired By" Challenge

 
This Little Miss Muffet Challenge is inspired by these fireworks photos.  

I chose to use a Sizzix Embossing Folder to give a "feel" for fireworks.  After embossing the pink cardstock, I sprayed it with Sparkle Shimmer Spritz, painted the rays with Sparkle Smooch and then added Pink Stickles - all to give it sparkle.

I have used Pollycraft Swings and Slides Butterflies, one of the new LMM releases last month, as my image.  With an inside saying, I'm making this a birthday card.  She is colored with Copic Markers and cut out with Spellbinders Labels Ten Nestablities.  The cardstock is pink PaperTrey Ink and Bazill aqua and Copic XPress white.  I added a white organza ribbon that I colored with Copic BG13.   

Here's a close-up view.


As always, we invite you to join the challenge and upload your card at the LMM Blog.  All the details are there.  You could be a random winner, so come participate in the fun.

Ever So Thankful



As we move into Autumn with the falling leaves and the harvest season, we have many reasons to be grateful to God.  Red Rubber Designs' theme this month is Thankful/Grateful.  I love, love, love this beautiful stamp called Ever So Thankful.  It is a collage stamp and seems so elegant. 



I've colored it with Copic markers, sponged Palette Cognac ink on the edges and used Crystal Effects on the word "thanks".  Recently I've discovered how great burlap is for adding texture on a card, and I thought it worked well with this autumn layout.  Also the dark brown card base is embossed with Spellbinders Flora embossing folder.



Blessings to you and your family this fall and season of thanks.
