Here in the South...

Hello! It's Monday and time for Rubbernecker Stamps DT #1 to bring you our makes for this week. I am up first with two stamps: "Here in the South" and "Stylized Martini Glass". I love this sentiment. My family is from the south and I can attest this is true. But it may be more of a case of not being able to control the crazy family as opposed to parading them on the front porch. lol!!! 

All of my paper is from the Stampin' Up Cupcakes and Carousels collection. I used the Stampin' Write markers in "Brights" for my stamps. I like being able to individually colour the different parts of the stamps with the markers. It's super easy with the dual tip markers. I used the tag punch from SU too. The little ribbon I used on the tag was white, but I coloured it with the Bermuda Bay marker that I used on the stamps so it would match. The other ribbon is from May Arts.

Tuesday, April 25 is the start of another challenge on the blog, which you can access by clicking HERE! The prizes are a $25 GC first prize and a $15 GC second place prize to the Rubbernecker store. Below are direct links to the stamps I used today for your convenience! xx

Cupcake Fight

Today is new release day at The East Wind, and today's new image is 'Aurora "Cupcake Fight"'. It's a perfect image for a birthday card.

I coloured the image with Copics, and all of my paper and embellishments are from Stampin' Up. The "Happy Birthday" stamp is from Rubbernecker Stamps.

Come back next week for another new release! In May we are going to have a challenge on the challenge blog, so stay tuned for that and make sure you are checking in on the Facebook page for all the latest news from TEW. It has been a bit quiet lately, while Unky took care of some personal business, but we're getting back to business this spring. Make sure you join us!! xx

Love Birds

It's Team 1's Sweet Sunday at the Rubbernecker Stamps blog and the DT ladies have created some lovely cards for our team post. I used "Love Birds" and "Just a Word" for my card this week. 
Love Birds
I used my Stampin' Write markers in Brights from SU to colour the individual parts of the Love Birds stamp. I think this is a really cute stamp and versatile too. You could use it for a wedding, anniversary, Valentine's, or even a birthday card for your better half. 😉 You could use any sentiment you wanted, but I picked "Just a Word" for this one. Most of the paper is from my scrap pile, which is becoming way too big so I have tried to use some of it up with some recent cards. The Sahara Sand paper I used as the base for my stamping is from Stampin' Up. The ribbon is from May Arts.

If you haven't stopped by and checked out the new challenge that went live this week, pop over there and check it out now by clicking HERE. The theme is April Showers (April Showers Bring May Flowers). The prizes are a 1st prize $25 gift certificate, and a 2nd prize $15 gift certificate to the Rubbernecker store.

You can follow me on social media by clicking on any or all of those little icons under "Stay Connected" on the right side of the screen. I have been a bit quiet these last couple of months because all four of my kids have been in activities and I have been swamped with parenting duties. None of that has changed, in fact things have only gotten busier, but I am going to make a concerted effort to get online more often. xx
