Ginger Joy Card ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Happy Holidays! Today I'm featuring the Ginger Joy Cling Mounted Stamp from Red Rubber Designs! Details can be found on the Red Rubber Designs Blog.

     The background was stamped with Candied Apple Distress Ink using the Gingham Background stamp, with a strip of sheer ribbon to allow the pattern to show.

     I made the tag to look like a cookie sheet, with scored lines along the edges. Then I stamped and embossed the gingerbread man onto Cork Paper, which gave it the PERFECT texture, using the Ginger Joy stamp, with paper piecing embossed in red, and colored with sprays and paints. For some more dimension, I used black puffy paint on his eyes.

     The sentiment was embossed in white using the Contemporary Greetings stamp, with some rick rack over it, and tied up with some ribbon.

Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful holiday!

Vintage Santa Card Set ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Hello! I'm back to share a set of Christmas cards featuring the Vintage Santa Unmounted Rubber Stamp Set from Red Rubber Designs!

     My design inspiration came from the December Card Sketch Challenge @ using Sketch #2.

     The colors were inspired by the festive December Color Challenge @ Lindy's Stamp Gang!

     I started by coloring a sheet of 12 X 12 cream cardstock with Magicals (Rizzo's Rowdy Red, Greased Lightnin' Green, and Drop Dead Gorgeous Green) and some water, which produced a beautiful effect. Once dry I stamped the Vintage Santa image all over it, in order to make multiple cards with unique color effects.

     I cut a strip of black cardstock to mimic Santa's belt, with a letter tucked into it, stamped with Vintage Script, and colored with different Lindy's sprays (Brushed Nickel, Black Orchid Silver,  Pineapple Paradise, Golden Doubloons, Cathedral Pines Green, and Ponderosa Pines Olive). For some more variation, I added different striped ribbons and colors of bling.

     The sentiment was embossed with Lindy's Purely White Embossing Powder, and also comes in the cling mounted Vintage Christmas stamp set, which also includes the snowflakes that I stamped onto my Scarlet card base.

     The green one is my fave! Thanks for looking!
