Buy the Shoes!

Wow!  I cannot believe it is my turn over on the Rubbernecker Blog already!  It is our busy time at work and the days are just speeding by!  Maybe that's why I was inspired to make this card!

I used Olivia for my card.  I love ALL of these sweet girls.  She was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.  I gave her a sparkly dress, bow,  and shoes, because what girl doesn't love a bit of sparkle?!  I paired her with the sentiment, Buy the Shoes.  I have had the half doily sitting on my workspace for ages and I finally found the paper place to use it.  I stamped the sentiment and used the Marquee dies to cut it out.  I cut a second for a mat and dotted white gel pen around the edge for a little added detail.  Not sure how well it shows in the picture though.

If you haven't heard, we have a Rubbernecker Stamps fan group on Facebook.  You can share your Rubbernecker projects, share your Rubbernecker hauls, and participate in a challenge or two.  You never know what will be happening next.

Hip Hip Hooray

Our next challenge at the Crafty Gals Corner is Red, White, & Blue.  I can't wait to see how you incorporate these colors into your challenge.

I started with this great Birthday Balloon paper from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.  Granted, it has yellow and pink as well as red and blue, but I thought it was perfect!  I used a sweet image from C.C. Designs that I printed so many moons ago.  I just thought she would look so adorable sporting these colors.  Unfortunately, I got her as a freebie from the Facebook group, but didn't save her with a name.  If you know her name, please let me know!  This cutie was colored with Copic markers and cut out using my Silhouette Cameo.

Welcome back to another challenge at Crafty Sentiments.  The new release has been delayed, so this week the challenge is Bright Colors.  We should have the new release for you soon.

I have used Vacation Begins and colored her with Copic markers.  My co-worker gave me some embellishments that she wasn't going to use and these beach stickers were among the items she gave me!  How perfect are they for this stamp?!

Hello!  It is my turn over on the Rubbernecker Blog and I have another one of the new owls to share with you!

This sweet guy is Epstein.  He is available in unmounted red rubber.  I colored him with Copic markers.  I usually have no idea what direction I am going to go with a card until I actually start making it.  I found this scrap of paper in my basket and this card took off from there.  I pulled out my Nested Oval X Stitch dies and created the mats.  Then I cut out the stamp using the Nested Oval Small Stitch dies.  I wanted to carry the same design to the sentiment I stamped using the Best Friends Etc stamp set.  I didn't have a die that fit the bill, so I pulled out the Nested Rectangle X Stitch dies and the Nested Rectangle Small Stitch dies.  I used a stitched rectangle that was large enough that the top edge did not cut at the same time as the lower edge.  I cut the bottom edge of the sentiment and then moved it to cut the top edge.  I did the same thing with the panel behind it using the rectangle X stitch die.  I love when I can figure out a way to get some extra mileage from my dies.

If you are on Facebook, you should come join us in the new group for Rubbernecker Stamps fans.  You can share your projects, join in the challenge. and just discuss everything Rubbernecker.  We would love to see you there.
