Welcome Winter - Three Room Studio

Hi and welcome back to another preview of the Three Room Studio new release stamp sets.  This set is Welcome Winter and is themed just as the title says - it is winter themed images and sentiments.
I used the bear tubing down the slopes and trees for my card.
The sky is Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans and Broken China distress ink and I cut the snowbanks and added Snowflake Tinsel embossing powder.  Let me tell you, by the time I was done with the tinsel, there were sparkles everywhere!  When I had the background done, I embossed the sky with some Chunky White embossing powder and I seemed to be following a pattern because there was almost as much embossing powder around the room as there was tinsel.  Some days are just like that!
Be sure to check out the Three Room Studio shop to have a look at the stamp sets, to the Three Room Studio blog, the design team blogs and Instagram.  
Thanks for stopping by.

Skate Sleep Repeat - Three Room Studio

Exciting stuff!  Today is my first post as a member of the new Three Room Studio design team and it is also the first day you can purchase this release.  Including this set, there are three brand new stamp sets with one being winter themed with animals and the third with a steaming cup of hot chocolate (or coffee) in the big chair.  
For my card, I used Skate, Sleep, Repeat and it is a fabulous skater themed set of clear stamps which includes images of skates, banners and sentiments.  This gal looks like she's experiencing sheer joy as she's skating along.  I can't skate.  You'd think that with me being from the Canadian prairies that I should be able to but I haven't had skates on in years and I was never very good at it when I did so I really admire those who can.
I stamped the image and used a stencil and Hickory Smoke distress ink to (carefully) surround it and then added some die cut flowers.  After masking the words on the sentiment, I cut the words apart and doodled a border around each one with a Copic Multiliner pen.
Be sure to check out the Three Room Studio shop to have a look at the stamp sets, to the Three Room Studio blog, the design team blogs and Instagram.

Swanky Snowdudes - Paper Smooches

I have had Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes for ages and it's one of the few sets I've used repeatedly. I've made lots of tags because these little guys are just the perfect size and they are a hit every Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas, how are you doing getting your cards finished up? I think I am done but now my cupboard is stacked with gifts waiting to be wrapped but I'm getting myself a little more organized because I dug the paper, tape and tags out so I am ready to roll!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Hearts - R85, R83, R81 and a layer of Stickles

Hooties - Paper Smooches

Hi and I hope you are well.  For today's card, I used Paper Smooches Hooties stamp set and think these little owls just the cutest.  After masking the owls, I stamped the branches, then masked those, added the leaves and cut around all of it.  The blue background is Tumbled Glass distress ink swirled onto watercolor paper.  
The images were coloured with Copic markers but for some reason, I have misplaced the paper with my instructions so I'm unable to tell you the colours I used.  Drat, I hate it when that happens but I guess it's better than losing the card!

Oh la la... Carabelle Studio

I found the loveliest stamp and although it's not like me, I got busy right away and made a card with this fabulous image.  Usually I see it, buy it and then let it cure for a few months before I add ink to it.
At any rate, the stamp is Oh La La made by Carabelle Studio which is a company I hadn't seen before but they've got a few images in this style I'd like to have.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Butterflies - Rubbernecker Stamps

Hi there and I hope you are well.  All is good here and it's soon time to get the Christmas rush preparations but in the meantime, I did up a non-holiday card.  I thought it worked up very quickly because there's no colouring, just some stamping and embossing
Using Versamark, I stamped the butterfly onto some heat resistant acrylic and then applied and heated gold embossing powder.  When finished, it's a simple matter of cutting around the embossed edges with a fine scissor. I like the transparent look you get when stamping on the clear acrylic.  I've used regular acrylic and it works just as well, in fact, you are able to shape the edges while warm and it sets that way.  To give dimension to the butterfly, I used some clear adhesive foam pads.  To create the small bits around the edges, I dipped the butterfly stamp into the Versamark and randomly stamped and embossed small segments of the wings.
Be sure to check out the Rubbernecker Stamps blog for tons of inspiration and also the Rubbernecker Facebook Page. There is also a Facebook Fan Page with lots of inspiration, updates on sales & product and a great place to post your Rubbernecker Stamps creations and you can find Rubbernecker on Instagram too.
