Rubbernecker Stamp Company  has just opened their website and is ready for business.  This is especially exciting as Jeanne and Sherry have invited me to be on their Design Team. Look who I get to rub elbows with.  WooHoo!!! I’m walking in the tall grass with the big dogs today! This is a very talented group of designers and just the sweetest people to boot.

Here are few cards that I have had stashed waiting for the grand opening.  I hope you enjoy them.  I certainly have had fun creating them and tapping my fingers…..tap..tap…tap waiting to be able to upload them for you to see.


This card was a lot of work but I had the best time creating it.  You can not see it well in the photo but this card is covered with glitter.  Each and every little piece of candy, the tree, the house, the peppermints and lolly pops all are a glitter and sparkle.  I stamped the gingerbread house image, which includes the peppermints and lollipops, with Black Brilliance on watercolor paper. I stamped the tree and all the little candy pieces on scrap paper so I could paint and cut out.  I painted all the images with re inkers and a watercolor brush, sponged on blue for the sky and then started adding white frosting to the house by painting white craft ink with a small brush.  I covered the tree and lollipop with white craft ink as well and heat embossed all with white embossing power.  I painted all the small candy pieces and dabbed on Diamond Glaze and sprinkled with glitter.  I cut all the pieces out and to add the scene.  I created a frame with my coluzzle and added falling snowflakes around it with craft ink and white embossing powder. I added the Diamond Glaze and glitter to the frame and then popped it up over the main image.  I popped up the tree and then added all the little candies along the bottom. I had more glitter on me than I did the card when I was finished but it was so much fun.  I felt like a kid as I just kept adding glitter.  It was definitely a "more is better" thing.

This card is one of my favorites.  I love the tree and the Santa and couldn’t help putting them together to create this darling little scene.  The Santa was stamped with Black Brilliance and then masked to stamp the tree.  I painted the images with Adirondack re inkers and sponged with Ranger Scattered Straw Distress ink.  I used a gold pen to apply gold trim to the tree, sentiment and also for a background on the green layer.  I lightly applied Liquid Applique and smoothed out with an applicator to create a fairly smooth finish for heating.  It popped up beautifully and even and I didn’t have any of the dreaded blobby bubbles.  The trick to applying Liquid Applique is to not use too much, apply it very evenly and thin to create a softer look. I applied a little Diamond Glaze and glitter for sparkle. I attached a little tiny gold bow to the tree top and a larger bow at Santa’s feet for embellishment.  I love the rich look of these colors together with the gold.
