A project with I heart Art stamps by Saadia Nawaz

 Hi Everyone,

I want to share a small project with you. I hope you like it. 

A mixed media project with Rubber Dance stamps

This was inspired by the colors of the September mood board. 

I made this on a 6x6 inches Mixed media board. 

Applied the base layers of acrylic paint followed by background stamping with Mixed media marks stamp set. 

Next, I applied stamped my focal image on a cardstock and colored it lightly. The focal image is from the I heart Art stamps. 

Finished the project by adding words from the Mix a sentiment set. 

That's all for now. 

A reminder that we have a challenge that goes all month in Rubber Dance stamps Facebook group. You can find the link to the Facebook group here

Thank you for visiting. 

Take care, 

Saadia Nawaz.

Butterfly Girl Tag with Embossing and Inks



Hello, my crafty friends!  Mary here with a beautiful mixed media tag that I created using Butterfly Girl 1 , Mix a Sentiment 1 and Vintage Hotel Receipt stamps by Rubber Dance.  I love to use embossing as a resist for Distress Oxide Inks.  Adding the lace and tissue paper creates a beautiful touch.  

Here's my video tutorial:

Here are some close ups of the tag:

Textured Christmas Trees embossed on Vellum by Dunja

Hello Rubber Dance Fans, time flies, it's autumn right now, but christmas comes by soon...isn't it the same every year. I tried to start making christmas cards earlier, each year, but at the end... you know what i mean ;-) So let's get started with this adorable Textured Christmas Trees.

I made a slimline card and used a gelliprint for the background. Bright colors and than i thought about doing some heat embossing on vellum. And that's it. It's perfect for quick and easy christmas cards when time flies. Just cut them out and place them on the card. Here is a close-up for you:

I hope you got some inspiration. By the way, christmas cards do not have to be only red and green, i'm a fan of non-traditional colors.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and do not forget to start earlier with your christmas-cards-making ;-))

Much Love

Atc´s Meow Friends

Hello and welcome to today inspiration with me, Veronica. How are you all keeping? I enjoy and have a lot of fun creating ATC, today a very colourful duo. I hope you like them. I have been playing with Rubber Dance's Mixed media marksGrungy Stuff  and Purr-fect! stamp sets.

Very easy to do, we start. We cut watercolor paper in a size  2,5 x 3,5 inches. In my case, the paper smooth and hot pressed. Chose one of the stamps from the set,  Mixed media marks I apply  ink with different colors of distress oxide, spray water and stamp on the watercolor paper.

When it is dry, (help me with a heat gun to speed up the process), I add color with different pigments.I started with vibrant colors, and finally I decided on more industrial tones.

When I am satisfied with the result, I let it dry. (I like the backgrounds to dry by themselves, but since I didn't have much time, I got the help of a heat gun).

Now we add textures and depth with black permanent ink, prints here and there. I have also used to stamp oxide inks. I have used the new stamps. Mixed media marks and Grungy Stuff.

After stamping and coloring the precious kittens, the funniest part comes, the composition and we would finish with our atc's. Now I leave you some photos with details of the project.

Here are the Rubber Dance Stamps I used:

I hope you enjoyed and don't forget to visit regularly. The team has amazing inspirations every day, just for you.

Matchbox Book by Angie Coomber

 Hi arty friends,

how are you all?

This time I have made a little matchbox book for you, I hope you like it.

I have a Tim Holtz matchbox die so I cut a couple matchboxes first. Before assembling I coloured them with Paperartsy Infusions. I made a few but I only finished one of them here.

I added some stamping with the Doodle Borders stamp set using Distress Oxide inks.
I also added some gold splatter (naturally!) and gold mark making.

I chose some shades of red and green/blue acrylics and painted them onto a piece of card, then stamped flowers and leaves from the Crazy Flowers set and cut them out.

I also used my watercolours to do some mark making on a sheet of ledger paper, then cut a zig zag book to fit in the matchbox from a piece of card. I glued the ledger paper to both sides of the book.

Next I assembled the box (I use double sided tape), then decorated both the box and the book with the leaves & flowers, and added a word sticker to the front of the box. Once you have made your box you can use it for so many things - pictures, small gifts, journal prompts, gift vouchers, inspirational warned, it's addictive!

Creating Imperfection, art journal page with video tutorial by Melina

 Hello creative friends!

It´s Melina here today sharing an art journal page.
If you know me you know that I love colour and whimsy!
This page is just another proof of that ;)

I like to take the stamps I´ve got and mix and match them to create new images.
What about this quirky balloon?

I used the In the Air and Be a Pineapple stamp sets to create it, and I added the autumnal 
touch using the I Love Leaves stamp set.

You can see exactly how I made this page in the video HERE.
Hope you´ll enjoy watching!

ATC Textured Mushrooms on Gelliprints


Hello Rubber Dance Friends, it's me Dunja today with you on the Rubber Dance Blog.

It is autumn, that means beautiful colors out there and it is mushroom time :) I like the textured mushrooms best and I can choose the colors myself :) I'll show you an art journal page at the bottom of my post, there are some more mushrooms and colored in traditional autumn colors.

But first I would like to show you my ATCs. ATCs always have a fixed size: 2.5x3.5 inches. I used pa page of my gelliprints and cut them to fit. They are the base. 

Then I used the grid stamp with the squares. I used it in different ways, sometimes embossing with WOW! Powders, simply stamped, with pigment inks. You always have the choice of possibilities.

I also stamped the head of the mushrooms on gelliprints, with StazOn ink, it is perfect for such things. It dries super fast, does not smudge. 

Before that I stamped the stamps on white cardstock and cut them out. I glued the headers on separately. At least just a few sentiments, that's it :)

And here is the art journal i was talking about:

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you like the Artist Trading Cards in that "special" color. Enjoy your day and happy crafting everyone. 

Don't forget to join our Rubber Dance Lounge and join our monthly challenge :) This months moodboard is fabolous (again).

See you soon

Dunja xx
