4th of July Challenge at Rubbernecker Stamps

It's the start of a new challenge at Rubbernecker Stamps and the challenge this time is 4th of July. Being in Canada this was a little tough just because I couldn't find a good selection of USA theme paper. I found one sheet!!

I had to be really creative with this card because there aren't any 4th of July stamps. I ended up using a Happy Birthday stamp from THIS collection and created a background with some VersaMark ink and clear embossing powder on the red paper. I used a Happy Birthday die and the "USA" is from the scrapbook paper I was able to find. I also used the "Nested Square Stitched Die Set" from Rubbernecker.

Make sure you stop by the blog and enter this challenge for your chance to win one of two prizes: a $25 gift certificate for 1st place, and a $15 gc for second place. Below are direct links to the stamps I used today. xx

I needed to make a Father's Day card for my husband, so how about killing two birds with one stone and doing one for my Week 1 inspiration at Rubbernecker Stamps! I used the new clear stamp set "Leaves" and the "Happy Father's Day" stamp.

I used VersaMark ink with the leaves and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. My wood grain paper is from Kaisercraft. The green paper, ink, and enamel hearts are from Stampin' Up. The faux leather band is from Bo Bunny.

Tomorrow, June 20, is the start of a new challenge on the blog so make sure you drop by and join us. You can access it by clicking HERE! The prizes are a $25 GC first prize and a $15 GC second place prize to the Rubbernecker store. Links to all of the Rubbernecker products I used on this card are below:

Celebration Showcase at Aurora Wings

We've reached 3,000 members at the Aurora Wings Facebook group, and to celebrate we're having a party!!! Mitzi has drawn up some beautiful images for a special showcase and I am sharing my creation with the new image "Lady Of The Sea", which is only available in the Aurora Wings digi shop. 

I coloured the image with Copics and kept the design simple to really showcase the image. And it took a lot of time to colour this whole thing! I printed it out at 5x7" because of all the detail and I wanted to do it justice.

There is a huge celebration going on in the Facebook group. Make sure you head over there because there will be a free image for participants. The freebie digi for this event will become available at 6 pm EDT on Saturday, June 10th. Here's a little sneak peek:
