June Recap - Lots of Inspiration!

Hello everyone! It's Bibi here today and as usual at the end of each month, I want to show you some of the things we have made with Rubber Dance stamps during the whole month. 

Some of these projects have been published on this blog, some on our Scandinavian blog, and others again on the DT members' own blogs - so even if you are a follower of this blog there are probably quite a few you haven't seen before. Hopefully you will find artwork that will inspire you to make your own pretties :-)

Easel Card With Textured Flowers

Hello.  Welcome.  Gail from the design team here today with a project using the new Textured Flowers stamps.  I loved these the moment I saw them.  Big beautiful blooms.  And many smaller stamps for adding leaves and texture.  

I decided to make a Twisted Easel Card.  There are many tutorials available but I used this one by Lois.  So here's my card using Textured Flowers and of course, a giraffe..........

I was inspired by the Rubber Dance challenge colours which for June are:

I stamped the large simple daisy, masked and stamped two more. 

I added the giraffe from African Animals.  I think I'll call her Daisy.

I thought it looked a bit empty so I stamped more daisies......

and coloured with distress and dye inks. 

I stamped and embossed three of the doodled flowers and the giraffe, fussy cut and added them to my panel.  I used brads and a Cheery Lynn die cut for the flower centers.  I also doodled a little faux stitching around the edge.

I mounted the panel on my easel base and decorated inside the card.

I used one of the doodle flowers for my 'stop'.  I cut some of the petals off and added them to the top for more dimension.
