The End of the Rainbow

Welcome to my Rubbernecker Stamps Sweet Sunday post.  This week I used the Candle Set. It was so easy to create this card because I used the matching die as well.  The die will be available in the shop soon!

When I got this rubber stamp, I cut the candles apart so I could use them as individual stamps.  I felt the set would be really versatile that way.  For this project, I stamped each candle enough times so I could make a rainbow.  Since I needed 7 candles, the heart candle got used a third time, because a birthday card should be full of love.  I colored each candle with Copic markers using the colors of the rainbow and used the die to cut them apart.  Even though the die is one piece and I had cut the candles apart, it was still really easy to use the die to cut these out.  It's hard to see, but I popped them up with a little bit of fun foam for some dimension and attached them in rainbow color order.  The sentiment is from the new Best Friends Etc clear set.  It is quickly becoming my go to sentiment set.  I love the font and there are so many fabulous phrases. Since they are clear, you can even bend them if you want to stamp them in something other than a straight line.  I use a Copic Spica pen to draw the stitches.  It adds just a touch of sparkle to this card.

Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the Sweet Sunday project from the team.  They are fabulous!  If you are up to a challenge, pop over and check out the current challenge while you are visiting the blog.  You have a chance to win a gift certificate in the shop for playing along.

Peony Maiden

Hello MoonFlower fans!  I cannot believe it is time for me to post another MoonFlower inspiration project.  Where does the time go?!

This is the time of the month when the team uses the newest release in the shop, so I have Peony Maiden for you.  Her hair was so much fun to color!  The gorgeous die cut panel came from a pad that I found on clearance at Michaels.  The pad is full of gorgeous florals and It was an exciting find!  I thought this one would be an awesome backdrop for this fabulous digi.  She was colored with Copic markers and I used the Silhouette to cut her out.  I would seriously go crazy without that machine.  The hat pins are handmade using some loose beads and head pins.  It is so fun to customize the beads to your color palette!

You can find Peony Maiden in the shop now.  I am sure Andreia has something amazing in store for us next month, so be sure to pop back and see what it is.  You can also join us in the Facebook group so you will know exactly when the newest images are available.  Hope to see you there!

Emboss it

This week at Creative Knockouts our challenge for you is to add embossing.  I prefer dry embossing, but wet embossing will work too!

I used Chickz - Holy Cluck Another Birdday from Bugaboo Stamps for this project. The image was colored with Copic markers.  I used the Silhouette to cut it out in an oval, but then ended up fussy cutting it to just the image.

This is Mrs. Luvvy Owl from Digital Delights.  She was colored with Copic markers and I used the Silhouette to cut the oval since I had some other images on my sheet still.  The sentiment is from the Discover Words stamp set from Rubbernecker Stamps.

Little Polly in Pastels

This week at Crafty Sentiments our challenge is to use pastel colors.  I love the soft tones of pastels, so this is an awesome challenge for me!

This is Little Polly - Collecting Flowers.  I colored her with COPIC markers and fussy cut her.  She is mounted on a die cut doily that I bought ages ago, and found while I was looking for something else. It has a soft shimmery finish and just adds a little glamour to this card.

You have a chance to win Crafty Sentiments images by playing along. You don't have to use a Crafty sentiments image or stamp to play, but if you do and you are chosen as the winner, you win more!
