Rubbernecker Release Day Hop

RUBBERNECKER STAMPS


Release Day Hop


I'm really excited about this not only because of the cool stamps

but because it's the first release since becoming a DT member!


There are lots of beautiful cards to be seen on this hop!

The blog list is at the end of this post along with 3 ways to win prizes!

The cards I made for this release feature

the new set Crowns & Clowns (#528).


On the top card, I made my own background using the trumpet and

the little "splotch of paint" image that would look great with the vintage clown in this set.

The close to cocoa scalloped circle is popped up on the curry scalloped circle.

Colors: crushed curry, crumb cake/kraft, & white

Tools & Accessories: kraft taffeta ribbon, Spellbinders Nestabilities, & circle punch



One the bottom card, I stamped the pocket watch image 3 times.

First, I stamped it with the background image and then I stamped it twice for the main image.

I used a circle punch and pop-up dots to give the main image some dimension.

Colors: Close to cocoa & white

Tools: Spellbinders Nestabilities, CM custom cutting system, circle punch, & sponge

Size: 4.25 square (I use 4.5 A Muse envelopes)

There are 3 ways to win!

Fabulous use of these stamps, Jen! I like how you created your background paper with the saxophone on the first one. The timepiece card is a classic vintage card. I'm so glad you're a part of the team!

DH plays the sax, so that particular stamp really caught my eye. I can see the little paint splash being a lot of fun.
