This is my last post as designer for Red Rubber Designs, as my term on the team is now completed.  This is a wonderful company, and I wish Pam, the owner, much success as she enters the second year with her stamp company.  I love the variety of stamp images and all the beautiful patterned papers and accessories she sells.  I'll continue to be a customer and supporter.  Blessings to you, Pam.  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your first year with Red Rubber Designs!

I Love Easter treat basket

This cute bunny stamp set called I Love Easter makes a fun treat basket for Easter jelly beans or other candies.  I used More Mimi Patterned Cardstock for the basket.  Then I added pink Easter grass, jelly beans and a pink bow.  My image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers (E11, E13, C1, RV11, RV21, RV93, YG13, YG09, G14).  

Here is a close up of the bunny image and tag, which is from the More Mimi Patterned Cardstock pack.

Happy Birthday, Red Rubber Designs

Today is the one-year birthday for Red Rubber Designs, and we are having a celebration.  Each of the Design Team Members is featuring their "favorites" from this past year.  We'll show you our personal favorite Red Rubber Designs creation, and also our favorites from the other DT members.

 I have two favorites that I posted during the past year.  The first one is keychains made with my grandchildren's pictures.  On the reverse of each picture is a quote from the Red Rubber Designs stamp set, Be Happiness.  You can read more about the project here.

Another favorite of mine is the September 2012 Spotlight stamp set, Sew Thankful.  I made a tri-fold slant card with this set.  Check out the details here.

Now let me show you some of my favorite creations from the Design Team.


Sarah is the tag queen.  She makes the loveliest vintage tags.  I like this Gerbera Daisy tag she created.   Check out Sarah's blog post.



Louise had the prettiest card and matching envelope using Red Rubber Designs' Lovely Peony stamp set.  This was in the October 2012 Blog Hop.  Look here to see the details.


Diana's Furry Friends card is one of the cutiest she had all year, although I liked many others of hers also.  Here it is, and you can find her blog post here



Kate does the most unique collages and vintage work.  Here is her Sunflowers creation. I really like this one.  Here's the link to her blog.


I hope you enjoyed this short memory trip from this first year of Red Rubber Designs.

Be sure to check out each of the Design Team blogs so see what their favorites were and enjoy more special Red Rubber Design creations.

Red Rubber Designs Konnichiwa

I love this Konnichiwa stamp set by Red Rubber Designs.  The set has three sweet images of girls, some extra assessories (umbrella, fan, flowers) and several sayings in both Japanese and English.  For my card, I used the flower image to make my background paper.  I colored the background and the girl image with Copic markers, added a bow and some glitter glue.  

Here's a close-up view of the girl,

Easter Chicks candle and waterfall card

Easter Chicks from Red Rubber Designs is the Spotlight Stamp this month.  Each of the Design Team members is using this stamp set for the March blog hop today.  I've made a candle and waterfall card for my project.  

On the candle I put all the five images of the little chicken, beginning with the egg, then the cracked egg, the chicken coming out of the egg, and two images of the hatched chick and the saying, "Happy Easter".  A strip of More Mimi Patterned cardstock borders the bottom of the candle.

The waterfall card has each phase of the hatching chicken as the card flips from one scene to the next.

 The last scene with the hatched chick has the Happy Easter greeting.

Supplies for candle:
Easter Chicks stamp set
candle (from Dollar Tree)
tissue paper
Memento Tuxedo Black ink

wax paper
More Mimi Patterned cardstock collection

Supplies for card:
