Retro Rubber Guest Designer

Hello, welcome to my blog! I'm excited to be the guest designer in the Retro Rubber Challenge today and I can't wait to be part of their talented and fun group. 

If this challenge is new to you, the most important thing to remember is to use stamps that are at least more than one year old. Thus, we spread the love around instead of always using our newer items only. 

My card features the lovely images from WPlus9 Designs' Tropic Fever Set (May 2018).

The hibiscus flowers and leaves were stamped onto Bristol Smooth card stock, embossed with white, and then colored with blended Distress Oxide inks. I used a small sponge dauber to add layers of color.

The set also includes this striking background which was stamped in black. The sketch provided served as a good jumping off point for this card. 

We hope that you will play along! Look HERE if you want to check out the challenge. 

I can't wait to see what you will make! Thanks for stopping by ~

Look for the Rainbows

I made a card the other day - just because I wanted to. 
I bought a card kit this month - just because it had rainbows. Well, no, actually there were NO rainbow images. Just birds and flowers.

 That's even better! And wonderful rainbow sentiments. 

I made the rainbow with strips of paper. Because it was fun!
Colored the birds with Copics and Wink of Stella, and cut them out. Talking of shimmer, check out the Tonic Crystal gems. I wanted to sprinkle them everywhere. I fashioned a cloud with my scissors and tucked it in for the sentiment.

Hope you enjoy my card today using items from the fabulous September Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. Since we've been having rain it's much brighter than in the photo. You will see me using these stamps again soon! 
Have a great day and a wonderful new week!
