Rubbernecker- Poppy with Color Burst

FullSizeRender(5)Hello! Thanks for stopping by today!! I have a lovely card to share with you today, using some great Rubbernecker Stamps! This is another Rubbernecker Watercolor stamp, it is a two part stamp which you can get a lovely watercolor effect quickly and easily every time! These stamps are so versatile, you can use ink or markers, rather than watercolors to produce the same lovely effect. Or you can just stamp the outline image and color with your favorite medium. Or, as I have done today, you can stamp the outline聽 image and paper piece using any beautiful paper of your choice!! 馃檪聽 Remember Wednesday when I shared the really beautiful paper I made using聽 the Ken Oliver Color Burst Watercolors?? ( see Wednesdays post HERE if not! ) Well this flower uses a scrap of that same paper for the paper piecing! Easy as can be, as well as quick and beautiful!! 馃檪 I created the background papers here with another fun set I think I will get a lot of use from, Scuffs, Scraps, and Stains. So fun!! Finished everything off with a bit of natural twine and a metal button.

Hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it! Thanks for stopping by, don’t forget there is lots more inspiration over on the Rubbernecker Blog!! 馃檪

Rubbernecker- Imagine What You Could Do…

Today I have some fabulous paper to share with you!! I have been playing with the Ken Oliver Color Burst Watercolors and Liquid Metals, that I got from Rubbernecker Stamps.聽 So. Much. FUN! Holy cow the possibilities are endless!! Just look at this beautiful paper I made!! 馃檪IMG_1827I used the Caribbean Brights collection for this one, Chartreuse, Lime green, Tangerine, and Orchid. The Chartreuse didn’t end up showing up as much as I liked so I added just a touch of the lime green. I started by wetting my watercolor paper with a spray bottle, then just sprinkled the pigment on. It is so much fun to watch as the color literally “bursts” on your paper!! Each one is different and unique, you can totally change the mood by changing your color palette. I wanted a really blotchy look for my paper, so I sat out side in the sun and let it dry, then misted it again with my spray bottle. Let dry, mist again. I did this over and over until I got just the look I wanted. Then I got out the Liquid Metals!!! I had not worked with these before, so I started experimenting…. These are actually liquid to start with, so I used a paint brush to kind of splash it all over my paper, I wanted drips and splotches of gold. Then I started wondering what it would do if you did mix it with water… I got out a mini mister and added like 8 -10 drops of the Pewter, and filled the rest of the mini mister with water. I sprayed my water, liquid metal mixture across the whole paper, and it created the most beautiful shimmer, without a heavy metallic look!!! I LOVE it!! I will be doing this often to create that perfect shimmery paper, it is so easy! 馃檪

For my card I wanted the paper to be the star, so I used a lovely Rubbernecker sentiment Imagine What You Could Do. I layered it simply on complementary papers, and added a little blingy sequin ribbon to bring out the gold splotches.

Thanks for stopping by today, I really appreciate it! 馃檪 The Rubbernecker Blog is a great place to find all kinds of inspiration! Check it out HERE!

Rubbernecker Watercolor Poppies


I love the look of water colors, and these Rubbernecker Watercolor Stamps make that look a quick and聽 easy process! There is even a video HERE to help you out if you have never done this technique before! These are two part stamps, so if you wanted to color this image you could just stamp the outline image and color away. I chose to do the water color technique, following the video just to see how it would work for me. I used the Ken Oliver Color Burst Watercolors as well. I used both the Brights and the Caribbean Brights Color Burst Sets. This image was my very first attempt!! Ridiculously easy and fun too!! 馃檪 Those Ken Oliver Color Burst Watercolors are crazy fun! I spent a couple hours experimenting with them. Not only can you use them to paint with like traditional watercolor, but they make the most amazing background paper ever!! I will be sharing some projects soon that showcase the beautiful papers I made!

Hope that you are having a fabulous day, thanks for stopping by! 馃檪

Sweet Little Fox

IMG_1770Helloooooooo! I have decided to dust off my blog skills and get back to it! So, without further ado here is a little cutie I made with the wonderful girls in my monthly, Fun Stampers Journey Hostess Group! We Journey Coaches have a wonderful (HUGE) new catalog to share, chalk full of all kinds of new goodies to inspire your creativity! This card showcases a couple of my favorites! This sweet little fox is from “Creature Comforts”,聽 a fun woodland animal set with lots of cute critters!聽 (which also has a matching die set.) The “Flannel Background” was at the top of my wish list, LOVE it!! The sentiment in this card is from “BE Happy”, a wonderful set of sentiments and solid shapes too! “Bloom Cluster Die” adds a bit of green for my sweet fox to sit on. An oldie but goodie is the “Striped Love Background”in brown. I hope you enjoy this little guy, leave me a quick comment and let me know what you think! 馃檪

A New Journey!

Hello out there in Blog land! Not sure if anyone still reads my little blog, I have been gone for quite some time. Life sure has a funny way of throwing you into things, or pulling you out of things unexpectedly. Lots of “detours”! I started a new job outside of the home last year, and it has turned out to be quite a blessing in more ways than I would have imagined! It has also cut into my creative time more than I would have liked. Another “detour” I didn’t plan on was changing companies, I am now with Fun Stampers Journey!! It is exciting to be starting a new adventure, and I am feeling more creative than I have in a very long time!! So stay tuned for some fun projects with all new products!! 馃檪 If you might be interested in a new adventure of your own, think about joining this Journey with me! FSJ has an amazing opportunity right now, the $199.00 starter kit is just $99.00 right now!!! And you can customize your selections too! If you are interested in more information, please contact me, I would love to have you on my Team!! 馃檪


Halloween Creepiness

DSC_4320_01I really do not like spiders at all, so it’s weird that I like this stamp set so much! This is Wicked Web, and it’s in the A Muse Studio holiday catalog along with that wonderful eek die. I have to say I am loving this color combo, Margarita, Violeta, and Onyx, so fun for Halloween. I used Bristol paper for the stamped layer and just sloppily smeared some Lime and Margarita Splash ink with a wet brush. I let it dry well, then splattered it with Slate Splash. When that was dry I stamped the web.聽 I die cut two “eek”s and layered them to create a shadow effect. Next I stamped the spider (creepy) hanging from the word “eek”.聽 Fun. Quick. Easy!

Enjoy your day, I appreciate you stopping by! 馃檪

Hello Friend

DSC_4325_01Another card using Fall In The Forest from A Muse Studio. When my daughter was little she always wanted me to color animals (and other things) in colors you would never see animals. So today, in honor of my girl and her wonderful imagination, we have a blue and green owl!

Colors are Ocean and Margarita, with a little petite polka dot in Onyx to make things pop. Lime 1/4 inch ribbon ties it all together.

Owl colored with Copic markers.

Have a bright and colorful day! So glad you stopped by! 馃檪

Happy Fall…Almost!

DSC_4326_01Well it is almost time to say good-bye to summer and hello to fall! I guess I will be happy to see some cooler weather, but it’s always so sad (to me anyway!) to see summer come to a close. Thankfully I live in an area that has a fairly temperate climate, so the mornings and evenings will be chilly, but the days will remain pleasant.

This little fox and sentiment are from, Fall In The Forest, in the A Muse Studio Holiday Catalog. The leaves are from Hey Foxy, also from A Muse.

Papers: A Muse Studio Sugar, Eucalyptus, Pumpkin, and French Roast wood grain cardstock

Toffee twine.

Leaves colored with Peerless Watercolor Sheets, and Gold Splash Spray

Fox colored with Copic markers.

Enjoy your last days of summer! Thanks for visiting today! 馃檪
