Butterfly Girl Distress Crayons Card by Dot

Hi everyone,
It's Dot here with a fun card for you that uses Distress Crayons, a little Distress Ink and some fabulous Rubber Dance stamps.

The background for this is made with Distress Crayons using the colours from this month's challenge over on facebook.

After you've covered your card thinly with white gesso, the crayons are so easy to blend together with a damp finger. Then all you do is take some crayon off with a stencil and baby wipe, and add some colour on through the stencil.

The sentiment is one that I've put together myself using the Mix A Sentiment stamp set.

It was easy to stamp the whole sheet and then cut out the words that I wanted to use. I LOVE this 
stamp set! I'll stamp up some more of these so that I've got them ready to use.

Weed Love has some dandelion stamps in the set and they were perfect for the Butterfly Girl to fly around.

I was watching Gerry's recent video, here, and she showed a wonderful way to use the Grungy Borders stamp, so I decided to give it a go as part of the edging on my card. It worked a treat!!!  Thanks Gerry for a great tip.

The Butterfly Girl #2 was so easy to do too! I simply stamped the image and swiped her through some distress ink on my craft sheet.  The way that I kept her body 'un-inked' was to hold my fingers over that part of the image.  The ink only goes onto the wings this way.  Then cut her out.

I hope you've enjoyed this card.
Don't forget to check out our facebook group and the monthly challenges.
Even if you don't enter the challenge (which has awesome prizes - just saying), there are still some amazing inspiration and ideas for you to see.

Happy Stamping!

Fish Birthday with Cornelia

Hi Everyone,

Cornelia here today, playing with that funny fish from the Fish diet set.

My Stamp supplies:
 Such great sets, love them both!

And that's how I made this card:

I stamped the fish and heat embossed him with clear embossing powder.

Colored him with a combination of Kaleidocolor inks and Stabilo markers.

It's just easier to color, when you heat embossed it - less coloring outside the lines ;)

I added the sentiment and some Washi tape. Trimmed the card and added a piece of glitzi paper on the side.

Don't forget about our challenge, which goes until the end of the month. Play along, if you find time!
You'll find it in the Facebook Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge and its  those three colors you see below or anything goes with Rubber Dance stamps.

Happy Rubber Dancing!

Friends Fur-ever Artist Trading Cards by Gail

Hello Rubber Dance friends.  I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday.  Gail here and I have been playing with the oh so cute Friends Fur-ever set and made some mixed media Artist Trading Cards.

I used a That's Crafty! stencil and Broken China distress ink on a sheet of card.

Then I bumped the stencil and used Chipped Sapphire distress ink.  I stamped with black archival and the Marble stamp through the stencil to add texture.

I cut the ATC's using a die and stamped with Burlap stamp and white ink.  I used the stamp off-block so I could just add some random textured stripes.  I stamped the dogs from Friends Fur-ever three times, coloured with Promarkers and fussy cut them.

I stamped and embossed a variety of sentiments, cut them out and added them and the dogs to the ATC bases.  

Hope you like my project.  There is still time to join the monthly challenge in our facebook group

You can use the colours and/or anything goes.  Join the fun and link up your makes using Rubber Dance stamps in the Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge and also in the Forever Challenge here on the blog.  Looking forward to seeing your projects.  Hugz

Believe in Yourself Mixed Media Card

Good Day All,  I'm Suzi and it's my honour to be Guest Designer for the month of May.  I'm super excited to share with you my first project using the gorgeous Beautiful You Stamp set.

Here's my card

Here's how I made it;

First of all I created my background paper, using some texture plates, wax resist crayons and Inktense Blocks

Once my background was dry, I selected an area I liked and trimmed it down to fit a 5 x 7 in card front, I trimmed it to 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 as I wanted to add a layer of coloured card between this and the card blank.

I stamped my image using Midnight Blue Stazon Ink

Then I coloured my image with Inktense Pencils

Next I decided to add some contrast to the background paper, stamping the sentiment a few times, and adding some stripes of ink across the center of the card

I layered my background onto some dark orange card stock and added some cotton thread around the center for added texture.

I inked the edges of my image before adding it to  the background with foam pads for dimension

To finish my project I added it to a 5 x 7 white card blank.

I hope you like my card, and have enjoyed seeing how it was created.  I had great fun colouring this beautiful image and creating a bespoke background to go with her.

That's all from me for today
Bye for now

A card with Grungy Butterflies by Evelyn

Hello lovely visitor, it´s Evelyn today with a colorful card for your inspiration today!

This is what I did:

I took a piece of watercolor paper and glued some thin scrapbook paper and glued pieces on top. Then I added crackle paste through a stencil.

When dry, I sprayed Starburst Mists in orange and pink to the surface.
I repeated the process until I was happy with the result and when dry, I emphasized the cracks with black liquid watercolor. Then I added even more color with my Gelatos.
Now it was time for some stamping! I used  the stamp set weed love and the words from the Grungy Butterflies set for the background.
Lastly I colored another page of watercolor paper with Glimmer Mists, stamped some of the beautiful Grungy Butterflies here and there, accentuated with a white posca pen and fuzzy cut the butterflies.
Now I only had to glue down the butterflies and the stamped words.

I hope you feel inspired!
Thank you for your visit today!
