Floral Blessing

Happy Monday, friends!  Today I am playing along with a couple of fun challenges.  A few weeks ago I featured the
   Floral Collage Cling Mount stamp set from Red Rubber Designs in shades of blue so for the second image in the set I went girlie with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: make it girlie!

I chose accents in pink and a sentiment from Joyful Notes.

I once again I had fun adding splatters with So Splattered Cling Mount stamp set.

I chose pearls to go with the doily for an extra girlie touch!

I am also playing along with House of Cards April Challenge to Add Script and/or color inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have an awesome week!

Red Rubber Designs - Paper Cast Heart

Happy Tuesday to you!
Yesterday I played along with the Technique Lovers challenge (TLC582) at Splitcoaststampers.  Sabrina's challenge was to paper cast with toilet paper or paper towel.  I tried both and found that the toilet paper gave me a better result.  

I took 6 pieces of two-ply toilet tissue and placed it over one of the heart stamps in the I Heart You stamp set from Red Rubber Designs then spritzed with water.  This heart has a fabulous design with well-defined lines so I just pressed the wet tissue all around the stamp then gently lifted and placed it in the sun to dry.  When it was dry it looked great both from the front and the back.  I can't wait to play with the technique again!

For my background, I used my go-to technique of dipping mixed media paper repeatedly in distress inks spritzed with water. 

The sentiment I used is also included in the I Heart You set.

Here's a look at this versatile set!  (I used the heart with the loopy border)

Wherever you Go with Red Rubber Designs

Hello, friends! I need a one layer card this week so I broke out a couple of stamps from Red Rubber Designs and played along with a couple of Splitcoaststampers Challenges.

For today's TLC577, Judy has us using the "Smackin' Acetate" Technique.
I created a mask by die cutting a circle from text paper, then I scribbled markers on acetate and spritzed with water.  The acetate was then placed on top of the mask and the ink was rubbed onto the card front.

After the ink dried I positioned the Fern Sprig stamp and sentiment from Wherever You Go on the MISTI and stamped multiple times to get a rich black image and sentiment.

I am also playing along with this week's Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  I chose THIS card of Julie's to inspire my design. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Before you go let's take one more look at the fabulous Red Rubber Designs stamp sets.
