CASology Challenge #213: Stitch - Card by Bibi

The cue word at the CASology challenge this week is STITCH, so without further ado - here's my card: Stamps used (all from Rubber Dance): Giraffe , Mannequin from Sew Sweet ,  X stitches from Stitch & Frame . Stamped with Archival Ink (coffee), coloured in with Distress inks (tea dye and mermaid lagoon). Giraffe head cut off from the rest of the stamp and popped up with foam tape: I'm entering my card to this challenge: Thanks for stampin' by!  Love, Bibi ♥ Edited : I've entered this challenge once more - here's the post for my 2nd stitch card .

August Recap - Lots of Inspiration!

Denne posten kan også leses på norsk - klikk her (post in Norwegian) 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 and some on the DT members' own blogs (see links on the right side bar). This time I'll also repeat some of the previous DT work that were shown in their interviews this month.  (If you missed the interviews, you can find them here: Gail , Anita , Susan , Susanne , Bibi ) Anita: Bibi: Craftyfiled - Guest Designer: Gail: Susan: Susanne:  Many thanks to all the fab designers for their awesome work! Did you know that our monthly challenge has been going on for TWO years? Come back tomorrow

Interview with DT member Bibi

Les intervjuet på norsk  her . ( Interview in Norwegian) Name : Bibi Lindahl Location : Fredrikstad, Norway Occupation : Owner of Rubber Dance Blog : Stamped by Bibi H ow long have you been stamping and what made you start? Since 1992 after seeing how beautifully a penpal had decorated her envelope with stamped images. I wrote back and asked her where she got them, waited a couple of weeks for her reply, then I sent a letter to the stamp company (Cherry Pie) and asked if they had a paper catalogue, which I received a couple of weeks later .   I quickly placed my first order (of many to come!), and waited two more weeks or so... Those were the days, before the Internet! Cherry Pie still exists, now with an online catalogue and shop , of course. How do you improve your skills and/or learn new techniques?  I keep learning a lot from the women on my DT and bloggers I follow. Back in the 90s and early 2000s, I subscribed to several US stamps magazines. Nowad
