Before Coffee

Welcome to another Rubbernecker Stamps Sweet Sunday Post.  I went monochromatic with my project this week.



I used Coffee & Tea Inchies for my focus images and stamped the Coffee Bean Background on half of my card.  I layered up the images to give them some weight and then stamped the But Not Always sentiment directly on the card.  A few black gems and it was done!

Don't forget to play along in the challenge for your chance to win some Rubbernecker Stamps cash to use in the shop.

Our Web

It is hard to believe it is the middle of October already!  And Friday the 13th on top of it all!  So what better day to feature a Halloween card made using Rubbernecker Stamps!


I used Halloween Set 1 and stamped the web using white craft ink on black card stock.  The sentiment is from the same set and I liked the effect of stamping the sentiment on the patterned paper I used for the background.  The spiders on the background are part of the paper which is from the Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor collection.  You can get it digitally on Snap Click Supply.  It is one of my favorite Halloween paper packs. 

Don't forget to check out the challenge while you are visiting the blog.  You have a chance to win cash to spend on your Rubbernecker Stamps wish list.

Spooky CAS

This week at Creative Knockouts the theme is one of my personal challenges...CAS or clean and simple.  I manage to do a CAS card occasionally, but when it is required, I find myself struggling.  This time, it wasn't quite as much of a struggle though.  The biggest struggle was trying to figure out where I put the cheesecloth!


I used the mummy from the Halloween Candy Corn set from Oddball Art and colored it with Copic markers.  The set also has a Frankenstein and vampire candy corn.  You can see the others over at the blog or in the shop.  I sprayed a bit of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in marshmallow and scarlet on some black card stock and stamped my sentiment directly on the card.  I am not sure if this counts as CAS, but it is really CAS for me!

You have a chance to win 3 images from Oddball Art for playing along.  Click the badge below to check out the Halloween Candy Corn and everything else in the shop.

How awesome are they!


This is my project using Halloween Magic.  I have to admit, I was going to go in a completely different direction with this project.  Then I realized I needed to check the challenge theme, which is add brown or kraft paper.  My thought processes came to a screeching halt as I tried to figure out how to make brown fit into my idea!  Then I remembered I had this paper pad from Carta Bella.  It is All Hallows Eve and is also available digitally on Snap Click Supply.  It fits the theme perfectly and it saved the day!

I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out using the Silhouette Cameo.  Her hooves have silver Wink of Stella and her horn a little clear. 

You have all month to play along with us at Sami Stamps.  You have a chance to win some great prizes, just be sure to use a Sami Stamps image so you will be eligible to win.

Going Batty!

Are you up for another challenge?!  Great!  I have on for you over at the Crafty Gals Corner.  We want you to go batty and add a bat to your project. 


This is Josie Zombie Witch from Scrap n' Dipity.  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette.  The paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Haunted collection that you can find over on Snap Click Supply.  I printed it for another project and just didn't like the way it looked.  It definitely works for this image AND it has bats!!  And what is a witch without a bit of sparkle?  She has some silver Wink of Stella on her bat and skull jewelry and a touch of clear sparkle the magic swirling around her wand.

Scrap n' Dipity is our sole sponsor this week.  You have a chance to win 3 digital images just for playing along.  You can click the badge below to pop over to the shop and see what's available.


Why don't you go batty with us?!

Hey Pumpkin

Now that it is October, it is time for the Halloween fun to begin!  I know that the stores have had Halloween items since like...June, but I like to wait until October at least!  This is my card for the Rubbernecker Stamps Sweet Sunday post.


The stamp and sentiment are both from the Halloween Set 3.  This gives you a great assortment of images and sentiments that you can combine on your cards.  I colored the image with Copic markers and used a simple circle die to cut it out.  What a silly kitty!

Don't forget to check the theme of our current challenge.  I know my team mates worked hard to create some lovely inspiration for you.  You can check out the rules and prizes over on the blog.

Teen Halloween

Hello!  We have a new challenge starting today at Fabrika Fantasy.  The challenge this month is pink or Halloween.  You can choose one or the other depending on your preference.  I love Halloween so this is what I made.


I chose Teen Witch 2 and colored her with Copic markers.  She also has a lot of silver Wink of Stella on her jewelry and bottles.  I used the Silhouette to cut her out.  I found this amber bottle embellishment in my stash and was so excited!  I filled it with some Diamond Glaze and glued the cork in.  I am hoping it will stay liquid.  But if it doesn't that's okay too.  I wrapped some wire around it and looped it through my flowers.  I am so pleased with how it turned out.

You don't have to use a Fabrika Fantasy image to play along, but if you do you are entered in a special drawing for projects using a Fabrika Fantasy image and your prize increases!

I hope you will join us.

Altogether Wonderful

Over on the Rubbernecker Stamps blog, this card is featured.


A while ago, I was making one of my design team projects and bought some embossing powder to emboss Wild Garden Frame.  I mistakenly assumed that since the color was "snow" it would be white.  Unfortunately, it wasn't and this background was what I created.  It didn't fit that project, so I set it aside to be used at a later time.  Flash forward and here it is!  I love this silver background with this die and stamp!  I turned it on its side and it made the perfect backdrop.  The sentiment is Altogether Wonderful and it is one of the recent releases.  I also used the Nested Oval Small Stitch Dies to cut out the sentiment.

You can join in our challenge for a chance to win Rubbernecker Stamps dollars to be used in the shop.  Pop over to the blog and click the Current Challenge link to see the current theme and the rules for participation.

Lots of Layers

Welcome to another challenge at Creative Knockouts.  This week the challenge is Lots of Layers.  I seem to be able to pile on the layers except for when it is the challenge theme.  But after a lot of indecision, I am pretty happy with the outcome.  I am pretty sure it fits the theme too. =P


This little sweetheart is Emmi Loo - A Poppy for You from Crafty Sentiments.  She is actually a digital image, so you can have instant gratification if you buy her. =)  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhoutte Cameo.

Crafty Sentiments is our sole sponsor this week and you have a chance at a prize of 3 images for playing along.  Click the badge below to check out all of the digital and rubber stamps Crafty Sentiments offers.

So Sweet

Welcome back to another challenge at the Crafty Gals Corner.  We have a fun challenge for you...Fancy Folds!  I had to do some looking online to try to decide on a fold to use for this challenge and I finally settled on a Double Dutch Fold card.  I found an easy tutorial by Jan Farring and went to town.  I increased the width just a bit to accommodate my stamp, but it was really easy to do.


This is what the card looks like closed.


And this is how the card opens.

There is plenty of room inside for a sentiment and embellishments if you choose.  I used Sugar Girl from Lia Stampz for my project.  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out with the Silhouette.  Her can and her decorator tube have silver Wink of Stella on them.  I added the embellishments to help keep the card closed.  I found the paper on Snap Click Supply during a One Buck Wednesday sale.  Every Wednesday, they have digital collections on sale for $1.  And guess what today is!! This paper is from the Echo Park, Birthday Wishes - Girl collection.

Lady With Class

Today is my Rubbernecker Stamps Sweet Sunday inspiration and I have created this project for you.


I used Shannon and colored her with Copic markers using a technique to make the dress look like it has sequins on it.  Let me know what you think!  The background paper has a pearl sheen and was embossed to add a little texture to show it off.  The sentiment is Lady With Class and was embossed with champagne embossing powder.  A few gold accents and it is done!

You can play along in the challenge hosted by our challenge design team.  You have a chance to win a gift certificate for the shop.  With the holidays coming, that means some new holiday stamps to add to your collection!
