Birds Card by Dot Leathbridge

 Hi everyone, I hope is all well in your part of the world. Today I've had a bit of fun with the Textured Birds stamp set by making a bird card. This is a one-layer card with lots of masking involved (still my favourite thing to do). Here is how this card was made. Firstly, I made some masks of the birds and letters that I'll be using. Photo copy paper is handy for this as it is thin. Simply stamp your images and then cut them out. It works beautifully when you cut to the inside of the stamped image. I made a quick template of the idea that was in my head. To see if it would work! I didn't use the smaller birds in the final make. Now I am ready to repeat it onto my cardstock. Start by stamping the image that is going to be the front image. At this stage I've masked the 'front' bird and then stamped the  letters from Alphabet Uno. I LOVE this set - you can make any word that you like! Then I masked a couple of the letters and stamped another bird so that it wil

Hello, Samantha here today and I'm so happy to be sharing with a page I created for my art journal. It doesn't have the journaling on yet which is why I have not used any text as I think I may get confused when writing over the top. Colours are like therapy to me and this was wonderful fun to create, the hard part was knowing when to stop adding details. My page is 8inches by 8inches, I used distress inks for the background and watercolours for the beautiful butterflies. White embossing and lustre spray give some lovely contrasts and details The stamps I used are: Inky Friends Bold and Beautiful Pencil Marks #2 and Pencil Marks #1  For lots more beautiful inspiration please join us on Facebook here in the Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge. Thanks so much for looking, wishing you a lovely day, Sam :) x

                                                                     Hello!  Mariken here, with a simple tutorial for you,  making these two flower cards. For these cards I used  Crazy Flowers #2 , Grungy Stuff , Grungy Border s and Mix a Sentiment 1 I made a background with stripes with Ecoline brushpens. Then I stamped some hearts with a stamp from Grungy Stuff in matching colors.   For the flowers I used  a lovely Crazy Flower.  I stamped them on left-overs. At first I made the biggest card  and then I cut the background into pieces  and glued them on a white card.   Finally I finished the cards with a sentiment and a Grungy Border. The stamps I used: Grungy Stuff , Crazy Flowers #2   Mix a Sentiment 1     Grungy Border s     And at last a little reminder that our beautiful Mood Board June  continues in the  Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge  on Facebook. We hope to see you there.    Thank you for your visit and enjoy your day!  Mariken

 Hi friends!  Lisa today with you on the blog and I'm happy to share my new art journal inspiration for Rubber Dance design team playing with these awesome stamps and my favorite watercolors! To start I brushed a coat of white gesso on my pages. Then I used my favorite watercolors to create a circular rainbow effect on my pages. I chose Grungy Stuff , Music Sheet and Mixed Media Marks stamp sets and I made a little stamping with archival inks. Then I stamped and cutted some butterflies on a white cardstock from Inky Friends stamp set and I used them as embellishments on my pages. For the final touch I made some splatters with gold watercolor. I used these products from the shop: https://www.rubberdance.de/big-sheets/music/#cc-m-product-13992010033 https://www.rubberdance.de/small-sheets/grungy-stuff/#cc-m-product-14004441033 https://www.rubberdance.de/big-sheets/inky-friends/#cc-m-product-14383086833 I hope you enjoyed my art journal inspiration for today! Hugs Lisa

Gelliprinting on white stickers is fun! I stamped into the paint on the gelliplate with the stamps from  Pencil Marks #1 . Use these stickers to create a background.  I stamped two of the flowers from  Flowers Gone Wild  onto the cards...  .. added extra color to the main images with watercolor markers, and also stamped script and other background stamps in the background. Some words from the  Mix A Sentiment  stamp set finish it off.  I hope you got inspired by this post. Remember... leaving a comment makes us happy.. have a good day.  Ellie Knol    Rubber Dance Stamps: The Rubber Dance Webshop Pencil Marks #1 Flowers Gone Wild Mixed Media Marks Old Book Page Round In Circles Mix A Sentiment 1
