Thanks for Being You! | Rubbernecker Stamps

Hello my friends!  Today I have a thank you card using Rubbernecker Stamps Fresh Florals layering stamp set.   This set is so beautiful and depending on the colors you use, it can be used for any season!  I wanted gingham on this card and didn't have any in my stash to use.  I finally had the idea to use the Horizontal Striped Background stamp and create my own!  Read on to learn how I did this!

Card base:
  • Die cut black card stock with the largest Nested Rectangle Small Stitched die and white card stock with the next to largest.
  • Adhere the die cut layers to an A2 top folding card base.
  • Create the gingham:  Stamp the Horizontal Stripe background stamp in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto white card stock.  Rotate the stamp 45ยบ and stamp in Hearth ink (from Color Fuse set #10).  Ta-dah!!  Gingham!  This is so easy and just about any combination of ink colors can be used!
  • Die cut the stamped gingham paper with the next to largest Nested Rectangle Stitched die.  Trim the piece to 1" tall, keeping the stitching on each end.  Adhere to card base.

Flowers:

  • Using the layering stamps in the Fresh Florals set, ink the first layer of each flower in Citrus.  Let the ink dry.  Then ink the subsequent layers in Mango, Apricot, and Pumpkin.  These inks are in Set #2.
  • Here's a tip:  to be sure to get that final layer positioned correctly, lay a piece of acetate over the stamped images.  Then stamp the next layer to see if the stamp is in the correct place.  If it's not, (as you can see in the second photo) wipe off the acetate, reposition the stamp and try again!  (Of course, you can do this with any layer you want to check.)  Click on any photo to enlarge.

  • Ink the leaf layers in Clover and Basil.  Ink the Basil a second time to intensify the color.
  • Die cut the flowers and leaves with the coordinating Fresh Florals dies.
  • Lay out the flowers and leaves on the card base to decide where to stamp the sentiment.  The sentiment used is from the Happy Mother's Day set and is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink.
  • Adhere the medium and small flower with liquid glue to the card base.  Add foam tape to the large flower and adhere.  Either glue or pop up the leaves around the flowers.

I love how the gingham turned out and think it really adds a fun autumn vibe to my card!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
