Grand Opening Blog Hop - Red Rubber Designs


"Life of the Party" is the RRD stamp chosen for the Grand Opening Blog Hop.  It seemed like a good celebration stamp for our DT team to use.  How fun to see all the different ways the team used this one stamp.  Be sure to go to all the DT blogs on the hop and return to the RRD blog for a chance to win a prize.  Details are below.

Now to tell you about my card.  The image is stamped on Copic XPress Blending Card.  I colored the Life of the Party image with Copic markers (BG23, BG15, BG49, YG01, YG03, E000, E00, E01, R81, W1, W4) and Spica Pens (Lemon and Turquoise).  I inked the edges of the image with Burnt Umber Palette ink and placed it on a brown cardstock mat. Then I put it over a Lattice Triangles Nestabilites cut from brown cardstock.   The background printed paper is from the RRD Rustic Chic 8x8 paper pack.  Below the image I have two aqua ribbons to match the paper, 3 pearlized jewels and a another piece of the Rustic Chic paper that I ran through the Corru-Gator Paper Crimper.



The blog hop starts at the Red Rubber Design blog and then goes to each blog of the Design Team members.  Here is the order:
