Rubbernecker Father's Day Hop

Welcome to Rubbernecker's Father's Day Hop! So glad you stopped by!

The Stampin' Sisterhood is getting ready for Father's Day (which will be here before you know it) with some great masculine creations using Rubbernecker Stamps.

Make sure you visit each sister's blog and leave some love, and then return to the Stampin' Sisterhood blog to let us know you've completed the hop route. You will be entered into a drawing to receive one free stamp set of your choice from Rubbernecker.

And, as a bonus we will draw an extra winner for a stamp set of their choice, just for sharing our hop on their Facebook page or blog!! After you have shared, just go back to the Stampin' Sisterhood Blog and let us know where you have shared our hop!

Both winners will be announced on April 28th on the Stampin' Sisterhood Blog.

Here's the hop route:

For my hop creation, I used the Rubbernecker image of  "Murray with Catch" (SKU: 562-02).  I stamped it with Marvy black dye onto X-_Press It cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers.  I then cut around the image with Cutter-bee scissors.  I attached some embroidery floss on the pole to appear as a fishing line.

Then, using the tutorial for Word Cards found on Splitcoast Stampers written by Dina Kowal, I constructed the text D-A-D using beige cardstock and patterned paper from Basic Grey.   I then adhered Murray to the second "D" of the card.

Circle of Orange Tulips

So I continue to relax, and make cards. Doesn't get much better than that.

Today, I was able to participate in Splitcoast's Color Challenge, #370, which is to use the colors Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight. Not having Stampin' Up colors, I used Copic markers to color my image and stay as true as I could to the colors. The desert option was to use florals.

I inked up an image from Northwoods called "Circle Tulips" using Marvy black dye ink onto Curious Metallics Cryogen White. I colored the image with Copic markers, and then cut around the circle. I placed the circle onto a a piece of Cryogen white cut from a Nestabilities die. I then placed the image onto a piece of patterned paper from Graphic 45. Lace and a gold ribbon embellish the card, though hopefully not taking away from the gorgeous tulips image.

And so, this is probably going to serve as a Mother's Day card. Into the stash it goes.

Do Nothing and Rest Afterwards

I am tickled pink that I am on spring break...I so needed a break. This card pretty much sums up my plans for the week, and I couldn't be happier about it.

I stamped the adorable High Hopes Rubber Stamps image of "Sweet Dreams" onto X-Press It cardstock with Marvy black dye. I colored the image with Copic markers. I stamped the image a second time, so I could pop-dot the flower.

Patterned paper from DCWV and black cardstock form the layers of this card. The sentiment, which seems absolutely made for this image, is from Make an Impression. I added a small green ribbon and bow to the card for the finishing touches.

Suddenly, I feel a nap coming on...until next time, make it a great week.

Happy Easter

Today's card features the digital images of Kaye Winiecki which are available from The Lily Pad. The digital set is called "Hoppy Easter" and it includes this adorable rabbit, basket, eggs and carrot so that you can arrange your special little Easter scene any way you want. This was my first card where I actually used multiple digital images with layering in Photoshop, so I'm quite proud of and surprised at myself.

I printed my scene onto X-Press It cardstock and colored it with Copic markers. I used patterned paper from The Paper Studio and Lasting Impressions and black cardstock to form the layers of this card. I paper pierced around the layers and faux stitched with a white colored pencil. A ribbon was attached to the card for the finishing touches.

The sentiment is from Outlines Rubber Stamp Company (sniff!).

Here's wishing you all a blessed Easter. May your baskets be filled with love, good health and PEEPS!

Stampin' Sisterhood, Dachshund!

Today marks the first day of this month's Stampin' Sisterhood Challenge from Rubbernecker Stamps! We've decided to change our weekly challenges to monthly, so that you will have more time to join in on all the fun. At the end of the month, we will crown some deserving papercrafter April's Sunday Sister and that sister will get receive a free stamp set of her (or his!) choice from Rubbernecker. So head on over to the Sisterhood Blog for all of the details and get crafting!

This month's challenge is a sketch:

This sketch turned out to be a springboard for my card...I flipped the sketch and omitted the triangle pennant layer.

For my card, I used the Rubbernecker image of "Dog" (SKU: 569-18) and the sentiment "Hot Diggity" (SKU: 568-11). I stamped the dachshund onto X-Press It cardstock with Marvy black dye ink and colored with Copic markers. I then cut around the image with my Cutterbee scissors. I placed the image onto a circle cut from a Nestabilities die. Patterned paper from The Paper Studio form the layers of this card, along with black and white cardstock. I paper pierced around the circle and square panel. The square panel was also texturized with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The sentiment was stamped onto patterned paper and framed with black cardstock. A red and white dotted ribbon complete the card, along with three dog bone brads.

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I hope you have a "Hot Diggity Dog" April!
