Little Ladybird - All Dressed Up Challenge

Today is the beginning of a new challenge at the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog so for today's card, I chose to use the cute Little Ladybird digi image.  The pretty little flowers are particularly cheery here today because it is very gloomy and dull outside and looks like it could rain.  It's definitely late fall with the yellow leaves on the trees and lots have already fallen to the ground and winter is just around the corner.
The theme for the challenge is always Anything Goes with the only rule to enter being you use an All Dressed Up image. If you don't have any, they can be can either be purchased at the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop or by downloading one of several cute freebies offered on the blog.
Be sure to head on over to the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog where you can see all kinds of inspiration from the rest of the girls on the team. Join us for some fun and wonderful creations at the Facebook Fan Page, Facebook Challenge (there is a theme for this one) and there's also a Pinterest page to view some more gorgeousness.
Thanks for stopping by and have a good week!

Dogs - Rubbernecker Stamps

Hi there!  Can you believe it is October already?  Sheesh... I don't know where the time has gone this year.  For today's card, I used Rubbernecker Stamp's Cheesecloth stencil which I think is very cool because it's an optical illusion stencil. It's a little hard to tell because of the circle and image in the middle but you'd see it clearly with it being gone.
The stamp I've used is the Dogs 2 clear set and again, I love sets where the images and sentiments are all in the same place... no hunting in my pile of stamps for a suitable one.

Fishing - Rubbernecker Stamps

Hi there!  
Time for some masculine cards and I have the perfect stamp set for those guys who are avid fisherman, whether they catch anything or not!
3003 Fishing 1 is a new set I received from Rubbernecker Stamps which is so versatile and makes perfect guy cards for the two fishermen and three fishergrandsons I have.
I used 4004 Sand Stencil which is one of the new Rubbernecker Stamps releases and rubbed Faded Jeans and Gathered Twigs distress ink onto Rubbernecker's watercolor paper.  Once the images were stamped, they were quick to colour up and then cut out with the corresponding dies.  In addition to the images, there are four fishing related sentiments and I like it when everything is in one place so I don't have to hunt for a sentiment to go with an image, it's all here in the set.

Best Things - Rubbernecker Stamps

Hi there!  I hope you are well as we see the long, warm and sunny days wind down to the end of summer.  It's already darker earlier in the evenings and later in the morning.
Did you hear Rubbernecker Stamps is now making their own line of stencils?  There are several patterns available and for my card, I chose to use 4007 Squares & Rectangles with texture paste for extra dimension.  After the paste was dry, I rubbed Violet Metallic and Rose Metal Viva 3D Stamp Paint plus Viva Old Silver over the bricks and was pleased with how it turned out. I quite like the shimmery look of those paints.

Batty for You - All Dressed Up Stamps

Today is the beginning of a new challenge at the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog
I have always like the Batty for You image so decided to use it again this year for a Halloween card.  I followed Tara's Gerda Steiner's Designs You Tube tutorial for creating a moonscape and am so pleased with how the background turned out.  I followed her instructions and used Victorian Velvet Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet and Black Soot, Antique Linen, Scattered Straw and Pumice Stone distress inks for the background.  I resized, coloured and then cut out the bats and the sentiment is also from this digi set.
The theme for the challenge is always Anything Goes with the only rule to enter being you use an All Dressed Up image. If you don't have any, they can be can either be purchased at the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop or by downloading one of several cute freebies offered on the blog.
