The Lion is a Very Hungry Beast …

Hi everyone,
I hope the sun is shining in your part of the world, it is struggling to pop out here.

Today I have an inspiration card for you that is for the July Challenge at Rubber Dance Stamps.
This month we ask you to either follow the colour part of the challenge which is Black & White plus another colour, or Use Wings/Feathers.


Here is my inspiration for you.

I’ve been thinking of having the elephant, from African Animals, walking through a forest of trees, then at the last minute I added the lion (from the same set) laying in wait for the elephant and added some words from the Take The Plunge stamp set.

I must have been in a mischievous frame of mind.

When you play along with the  Rubber Dance challenges you have a chance to win 12 Euro to spend any way you like at the Rubber Dance shop.
Have I tempted you to join in?  You don’t need to use Rubber Dance stamps to play along. As long as you follow either of the themes we are more than happy, and so will you be if you win 🙂

Happy Stamping

Simplicity Sunday at Rubber Dance

Today it is Simplicity Sunday time on the Rubber Dance blog.
This card is made using the 3rd Row Textured Houses, Round In Circles and Merry Magpie stamps.

It also fits in with the current challenge of Black, White plus One Colour.

I’ve been meaning to play with these houses for some time and it was fun to finally get around to it.
This card is just pure stamping fun all the way! With just a touch of colour.
Please pop on over to the Rubber Dance blog and check-out the amazing inspiration that is there.  There is always something new to see.


Happy Stamping!

Beautiful Butterfly with Repeat Stamping

Hi everyone,
I’m over on the Rubber Dance blog today with a fun repeat stamping tutorial using just one word that has been repeated over and over again.

Repeat stamping is something that many of us do all the time without even thinking about it.
It is always handy to know the different ways that we can use this technique.

This is a one-layer card using masks and just one word to create a card that is fun to make.
I hope you take the time to pop over to the Rubber Dance blog and check out how this was made.

Happy Stamping

Rubber Dance June Challenge Reminder, Merry Magpie

Hi everyone,
It’s time for a little Rubber Dance inspiration and a reminder about the current challenge that is on for the month of June.

Stamping must be obvious on your project.
You do not have to use Rubber Dance stamps to participate.
Use our Colour Scheme or Theme – or a combiantion of both.

If you choose our colour scheme, ALL three colours (in any hues) must be the MAIN colours. You may use other colours too.

My inspiration uses the Merry Magpie stamp set


Alcohol inks on glossy cardstock and some simple stamping can make an impressive card. I’ve been experimenting with these inks lately and the effects that you can achieve are amazing.

Remember, if you use the code DLFreeShip at the checkout when buying from Rubber Dance you will receive free shipping on orders over 15 Euro.

 

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend where ever you are.

Happy Stamping!

Rubber Dance Challenge Reminder

Hello everyone,
wherever you are in the world, I hope the weather is being kind.
We are heading into Winter here soon and it’s time to start rugging up! I wish Autumn could last just a little longer.

Today I’ve made a card as inspiration for you for Rubber Dance.
The theme this month is either a colour challenge, or to use metal in your makes.


I’ve chosen to go with the colours, the combinations are always so beautiful when used together.

For this card I’ve been having a play with paints and using my brayer.
The stamps used are ‘Flying Ink Bottle’, ‘Whimsy Carved Wood’ and ‘Twiggy Leaves’ (a favourite of mine at the moment. Oh, and a little ‘Old Book Page’ in the background.

I’ve also used a Stamperia stencil to bring in the dark red colour.

This challenge at Rubber Dance goes for the whole of May. I hope that you can pop on over and take a look at some amazing inspiration from the team.

It’s fun to join in on the challenges and there is an awesome 12 Euro prize up for grabs at the end of the month.
You don’t need to use Rubber Dance stamps to join in.

 Thank you for looking,
Happy Stamping!
