What have I been up to?

Just making a few cards!  All of these cards use stamps from Rubbernecker Stamp Company!



  • Stamps: Sentiment from Garden Phrase Set (SKU:508); Butterfly Inchies (SKU:427) and Bud Tree Set (SKU:505) all from Rubbernecker;
  • Patterned paper: Memory Box;
  • Cardstock: Bazzill;
  • Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Concord Grape and Vintage Photo;
  • Liquid Pearls and Stickles;
  • Foam Tape
  • Martha Stewart punch

The dots on the branch were accented with Liquid Pearls and Stickles.  The butterfly was inked first with Concord Grape then then the edges of the top of the wings were inked with Vintage Photo. (just an easy way to get a multicolored image)




  • Stamps: Sentiment from Fall Trilogy Set (SKU:480); and Create a Garden Set 2 (SKU:513) both from Rubbernecker;
  • Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket (plaid) and 7 Gypsies;
  • Cardstock: Bazzill;
  • Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Wild Honey, Scattered Straw, Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain, and Frayed Burlap (for inking the edges);
  • Spellbinders dies
  • twill tape and brad

The “blossoms” on the wildflower were inked first with Wild Honey; then I blotted the edges on a scrap paper; then inked the entire image with Scattered Straw.  This method (a revised Rock ‘n Roll technique) made a blended image with just a touch of dimension.


blessed are those


  • Stamps: Ethel With Shopping Cart (SKU:74-01) and Laugh at themselves (SKU:504-20) both from Rubbernecker;
  • Patterned paper: K & Company;
  • Watercolor paper;
  • Cardstock: Bazzill;
  • Ink: StazOn Jet Black; Tim Holtz Distress Ink for water coloring;
  • Martha Stewart Punch;
  • staple;


I hope you enjoyed this selection of cards!

Thanks SO MUCH for Stopping by!
