As you all know - I'm a member of Club Scrap - I get the Stamp kit each month and usually get the paper project that goes with the kit - this is the Box and Mini Books that came in the January 2010 Jubilee kit.
I also made another card - this one uses stamps that I purchased from River City Rubber Works, in Haysville, KS - just south of Wichita. I met these gals about 4 years ago and have never posted one of their images until now. Dana and her friend Mary and their families design and make a great variety of rubber stamps, both mounted and unmounted as well as digital images. They have been known to use family and friends as models, and the images on this card were the grandparents of Dana. I used a "Faux Paneling" technique from Technique Junkies.as the background for this card, papers are from Club Scrap . I also used my Nestabilities die for the oval shape.
I will be making some more cards using some of their great stamps in the future.
Today Beth Norman and I are challenging each other to create a card using a narrow cuttlebug folder, and then turning those pieces of paper into a Herringbone card. I created a Black & White card a couple of weeks ago and Beth thought it was neat how I used the "Border Cuttlebug" folder for the pieces of the design. The card I'm posting here uses all papers from the Clubscrap collection of kits. The card includes strips from various scraps of paper from different kits. This technique is a great way to use up scraps of paper. The browns make a great "masculine" card for any occasion.
