Curious Cat at Rubber Dance

Hi everyone,
are you ready for Christmas yet?
Tomorrow sees me wrapping all the pressies ready to take away with me.
Then I’m all organised … I think.

This month I have an inky tutorial over on the Rubber Dance blog.

It is always fun when you discover a new way of using inks.
This tutorial explores ways to combine your trusty Distress Inks with Distress Oxides for some beautiful effects to create fun backgrounds.


The stamps used on this card are mainly Curious Cat and Textured Flowers from Rubber Dance Stamps.

I hope you take the time to pop over to Rubber Dance and see how it has all come together.
It really was a fun one to make.

———————————————
I would also love to wish everyone a wonderful and safe Christmas
and hope that 2019 is a fantastic year for everyone.

Happy Stamping!

It’s Winter at FSC

Hi everyone and welcome to the new challenge at
Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

This month we would love to see your Winter projects.
My tag uses a snowman from Rubber Dance.


The background has some paint, stenciling and texture paste to build up a wintry background.
The stamp is Mr. Frosty and can be found here.
The beauty of using a snowman is that you don’t have to colour it in very much!
And this one I found very easy to cut out.


How cute is he!!!

A while ago I decided to start a tag journal. I’m glad to have another one to add to another page in my journal.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different takes on this theme. Please pop on over and check out their awesome creativity, be inspired and maybe join in the fun.

Ink Art Designs is our sponsor this month (that’s my Etsy shop) and has a gorgeous stamp set to give away to one lucky winner chosen by random org.

We also have a top 3 chosen by the design team and Saturday Spotlights where we showcase inspirational makes. And the icing on the cake is that each month we will be having a guest designer chosen from the entries.

Thank you for looking,
Happy Stamping!

It is finger painting fun with lots of stamping with rubber stamps and Art Deco paint.

sharing the love of Rubber Dance stamps.

Our challenges are now going through the facebook group

All you need to do is join the page, create something with Rubber Dance stamps
(following each month’s theme)
and pop them into the monthly album.
Easy peasy!!!

FSC – Resist

Hi everyone and welcome to a new challenge
at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

This month we ask you to join us with a challenge using the
RESIST technique.
There are many different types of resist that you might enjoy playing with,
including embossing powders, crayons, paint, gesso, gel mediums and more.

My card uses white embossing powder.


I’ve used the Blossom Scroll stamp from Stampendous for my background.
This stamp is 6″ x 6″ and is perfect for an embossed background.


Different shades of blue distress inks
were blended over the top of the white embossing powder.
Any ink left on the EP was wiped off with a slightly damp cloth.


The butterflies are a Rubber Dance stamp called “Butterfly Trio”.
They were simply stamped onto some scrap card
that had been coloured with a contrasting distress ink
and then cut out.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different takes on this theme. Please pop on over and check out their awesome creativity, be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
