Happy Birthday

I'm back with another card for Rubbernecker Stamps, this time using the Birthday Balloons stamp. After I inked up the balloons, I used Glossy Accents and rhinestones to finish it up.
All of my ink and paper is from Stampin' Up. I also used the Rubbernecker stamp Dash Dot Frame for the card border. It's a simple card, and I love these new balloon stamps with messages. There are also Happy Retirement and Congratulations ones.

My summer has been super busy, and the kids have just a few more weeks off school so we're making the most of it with a big family trip right away. Then when we get back hockey and football will be in full swing. We have to make the most of our time off while we can! I hope you're having an awesome summer out there.

Anything Goes at Aurora Wings


My favourite challenge theme is live at the Aurora Wings challenge blog: Anything Goes!! I love the freedom of ATG challenges. I just follow wherever my creativity takes me. This is my take on Petals in the Wind. I had started colouring this image a long time ago, and only got as far as her butterfly ears, which I coloured with Prismacolor pencils. I picked up with Copics and finally finished her with a mix of purple, pink, blue, and yellow. 
The image takes up the majority of the card, which is a standard A2 size, so not too many embellies on this one, just a few flowers and pearls. The sentiment is from a Finnabair stamp set called "Don't Forget to Fly". Here are the direct links to the AW image in both the Etsy shop and the AW store:

Foxy!

We're getting Foxy this Monday morning with the Fox set of clear stamps from Rubbernecker Stamps


I used the Foxy set of designer paper from Stampin' Up for this card. It was perfect for what I wanted to do. I coloured the fox with Copics. I was camping when I made this, so I had to be pretty basic with my supplies. There is an awesome die set that goes with these stamps, but I didn't bring my Big Shot with me, so I had to make do with my straight edge paper cutter. This stamp set comes with four different foxes and four sentiments, so my next card will be foxes again, but I'll use the dies so you can see how awesome they are.

Challenges are on break for the summer, so we are just doing team posts for now. Thanks for visiting the blog and being a Rubbernecker fan. There is a Facebook group for all of you HERE.
