A Hug for You!

How time flies!  I can't believe it is my turn over on the Rubbernecker blog already!  I have a little inspiration for you using one of the newest stamps in the shop.

This is Kylah.  She and her best bud were colored with Copic markers.  I didn't have a sentiment that had anything to do with a hug, so I created my own!  I took the "Coffee is a hug in a mug" sentiment from the Coffee set and covered the part I didn't want with transparent tape.  I inked up the stamp and removed the tape then stamped it.  I did the same thing with the "Thanks for everything!" and "For all you do!" from the Best Friends Etc set.  The great thing about the clear stamps is you can see exactly where you are going to stamp them.  I also used the Rounded Corner Rectangle w/pierce dies to cut out the image.

Have you heard that Rubbernecker Stamps has a new Facebook group?!  It is a fun place for you to share your projects and get inspired by others.  There will be challenges as well!  If you are on Facebook, we would love to meet you.

This week at Creative Knockouts, your challenge is anything goes.  We want to see whatever you can come up with this week!

This is Spells for Beginners from Dr. Digi.  I just love this wizard character!  There are a couple of them in the shop.  You should go check it out.  I colored him with Copic markers and cut him out using the Silhouette cameo.  He has gold Wink of Stella on his book corners and lock and clear on the orb of his staff.  A little texture from some twine and embossing makes for a great contrast to the text patterned paper.  The stars were the negatives from the Rubbernecker Stamps stars die I used on another project.  They were covered with some clear Wink of Stella to give them a bit of sparkle.

You have a chance to win two images from our sponsor Dr. Digi.  Just link up your project before the challenge ends to play along.  You can click the badge below to pop over and have a look in the shop.

This week at Crafty Sentiments the theme is to use gems or pearls.  We don't have a new release for you this week.  The new release will happen in two weeks.

This is Ice Cream Day. She was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.  She was so much fun to color!  I was so happy when I found this paper in my scrap basket.  I knew it was there, but wasn't sure if I would be able to find it! 

If you play along you could win Crafty Sentiments prizes.  You don't have to use Crafty Sentiments, but if you do you can win more.

Cute Zebra

Hello Fabrika Fantasy Fans!  Welcome back to the new challenge.  This month the theme is animals.  There are lots to choose from in the shop.  I chose Cute Zebra 3 for my project.

I colored this sweet zebra with Copics and cut it out using the Silhouette Cameo.  I am still building my birthday card stash so I have more for my co-workers and this guy really fit the bill!  I don't have nearly as many cards for my male co-workers, so I am trying hard to get some stashed away. 

You have a chance to win great prizes from Fabrika Fantasy for playing along.  You don't have to use a Fabrika Fantasy image, but if you do you have a chance to win even more!

Buy Happiness

Hello Rubbernecker fans!  I have some exciting news!  Rubbernecker Stamps is a sponsor for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  You can pop over to the blog and check out the great prizes Rubbernecker Stamps will be offering.  I got this adorable owl just in time to make a card for the occasion.

This is Preston! Isn't he just the sweetest?!  He has a number of friends in the shop as well.  Check them out while you are there!  Preston was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.  The sentiment is Buy Happiness and the images on the sentiment came from the Coffee Blanket stamp set.  I cut them out using the matching dies.  Preston and Buy Happiness are red rubber and the Coffee Blanket set is clear.  I love the clear sets from Rubbernecker Stamps.  They stamp crisply and clean up like a dream.  I used a couple of the new sets of nesting dies too.  These cross stitch dies come in all of the basic shapes!  I used the square and the rectangle set.  Love them!  The background paper is from Nitwit Collections and is part of the Coffee Talk bundle.

Have you heard that there is a new Rubbernecker Stamps Fans group on Facebook?!  If you use Facebook, come join us!  We would love to see your projects and show you ours!  We are going to have challenges as well.  Pop in and say hello.

Monster Birthday

Hello!  If you visit the Creative Knockouts challenge this week, you are bound to get a bit of fur on you.  Our challenge is furry friends, so I hope you are not allergic!  Grab your lint roller and head on over to the blog!

This is Valentine's Monster Love - 1 by Drawn by Krista.  I merged the three adorable monsters together to create this image.  I used the Silhouette software to detach them from the background and layered them together.  This is another birthday card that will get added to the stash.  Although, I am pretty sure I know which co-worker will be receiving this one. =P

Our sponsor this week is Di's Digi Stamps.  You have a chance to win a $12 gift certificate to be used in her shop.  Click the link below to have a look around.
