Sweet Sunday

Time for the Sweet Sunday post for Team 1 at Rubbernecker Stamps! I made a card that could be used for any occasion with this lovely scene stamp called "Bike on the Street". There are a few of these scene stamps that I really love and I will be bringing you a couple more in the near future. 

Bike on the Street
I also used the Nested Square Stitch Dies for this card. It's a very versatile set and I obviously like to use them a lot! I used the Moroccan Nights Designer Series paper from Stampin' Up and the coordinating washi tape and cardstock for this card. I coloured the image with Copic markers. I coloured in my own grass behind the fence for a little added detail.

Make sure you stop by the BLOG to check out the current challenge. It runs for one more week, so don't let time run out! There are $25 and $15 gift certificates up for grabs.

Out of Jail

Happy Monday to all you lovely people out there! We are back at the beginning of another Team 1 week at Rubbernecker Stamps and I have another coffee stamp to bring you.
Out of Jail
"Out of Jail" is one of the newer sentiment stamps released this year. I had some cute coffee and tea paper that I used for this card along with the Square Stitch Dies that are also available from Rubbernecker. I love these dies! I always get a perfect cut with them. 


Tomorrow is the start of another challenge on the BLOG, and our challenge team is going to have some amazing inspiration for you. Make sure you are visiting the blog every other Tuesday to see what the new theme is. You will have a chance to win a $25 or $15 gift certificate for first and second place respectively.

Below are direct links to the Rubbernecker products I used on this card:

Clean and Simple Challenge

CAS Challenge
Time for a new challenge at Aurora Wings and the theme is Clean and Simple. This is one of my favorite challenge themes because sometimes I hate to take away from Mitzi's images with a bunch of embellishments. Her images can be so detailed that adding any more detail feels like a disservice to her art.

Poppy Sprite
I chose Poppy Sprite for this card. I definitely spent more time colouring the image than I did designing the card. The colouring took me a few hours, the card took about 20 minutes. I matted the image on black and green and affixed it to a white card base that I embossed with a Cuttlebug damask embossing folder. The image really shines on such a simple layout. I debated adding a sentiment but decided against it in the end. I love how the red pops out on that white base. I'm really happy with how this turned out.

Pop on over to the challenge blog to enter your creation(s). You can enter up to THREE times if you use an AW image on each entry! The prizes for this challenge are: 1 (one) Artist's Choice Award Winner to be selected from entries using Aurora Wings digis ($20 GC and Badge); 1 (one)  Random Winner ($20 GC); and a TOP 3 Winners to be chosen by the DT ($10 GC and Badge). This challenge runs until October 14.

I'm Outdoorsy

I'm really not... But this sentiment pretty much sums me up and brings us to the Sweet Sunday post for Team 1 at the Rubbernecker Stamps blog. Make sure you stop by there to see my fellow DT ladies' beautiful creations.


Outdoorsy and Wine Bottle are the highlights of this new card for Rubbernecker Stamps. We started the week off with coffee and we're ending it with wine. Seems fitting! I used the Moroccan Nights DP from Stampin' Up for my card, along with their coordinating washi tape and enamel dots. I also used stitched circle dies. You can get a set of stitched circle dies HERE at the Rubbernecker store.
