For my feature over on the Rubbernecker Stamps blog, I am moving into the winter season.  I am not quite ready for Christmas cards, so winter it is!

This stamp is Frosty in Frame Small and he was colored with Copic markers.  I used the Snowflake Background and stamped it in silver ink for a bit of sparkle and shine.  Both snowflakes were in my scraps box and worked so well for this card.

The small snowflake was created by wadding up some tinfoil and flattening it back out.  I took a piece of vellum and stuck it to the tin foil and punched out snowflakes.  The tinfoil gives the snowflake some weight and texture!

Don't forget to check out our challenge.  You have a chance to win Rubbernecker Stamps cash to spend in the store.  Hope to see you there!

Welcome to a special Thanksgiving post for Rubbernecker Stamps.  I wanted to try something a little different and use a stamp that wasn't a traditional Thanksgiving stamp.  This is what I came up with.

I used Daisies and colored them like Black-Eyed Susans.  To me they just feel like fall.  I cut the image out using a stitched rectangle die like the one you can find in the shop.  I also used Watercolor Stripes with Versamark ink to add a little interest to the top panel of the card.  The sentiment came from the Best Friends Etc stamp set. I cut the word "blessed" from one of the phrases in the set.

If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I wish you the very best.  If you don't celebrate Thanksgiving I still wish you the very best!

Winter Is Coming

This week at Crafty Sentiments, our challenge is for you is to create a winter themed project.  Here is my inspiration project.

I used Come on Teddy and colored it with Copic markers.  I originally cut the stamp out using a die, but then I realized I colored the ground brown instead of snowy!  I fussy cut the image to get rid of all of the brown and created this sweet scene instead.

You have a chance to win Crafty Sentiments prizes for playing along.  You don't have to use a crafty Sentiments project, but if you do, you have the chance to win even more.

I hope you will play along.

Colorful Place

Hello!  It is time for the Rubbernecker Stamps Sweet Sunday post.  I have a sweet project that is quick and easy.

I used Be Yourself and colored it with Copic markers.  I cut out the image and mat using Echo Park Stitched Rectangle dies.  You can find a similar set at Rubbernecker Stamps.  The sentiment is from the Freehand Border Phrase Set.  I put a piece of scotch tape over the word "colorful" and inked the sentiment with black ink.  Then I pulled the tape off and used a marker to make the word "colorful" colorful!  I cut out the sentiment using the Nested Squares Small Stitch Die Set.  A bit of lace, a flower and tiny banners and it was done!

Classy and Fabulous

Hello Rubbernecker Stamps Fans!  It is time for my feature over on the blog and I have brought this bit of inspiration for you.

This is Fern.  She was colored with Copic markers and fussy cut.  I also used the sentiment Classy for this card.  Fern does have a matching die so you don't have to fussy cut if you don't want to!  I was digging through my bits and pieces box and found these stars that were left from a Silhouette cut and I thought they were perfect!  I love when I can use those extra bits left over that we hate to throw away!
