Happy Birthday with RubberMoon Stamps…

28 Jul

 

 

Today my oldest son turns….23!!  I can’t believe it!  This birthday card is for him..because he loves elephants!! )

I am using this stamp, called eluvphant.

First I got all my stamp colors out.

IMG_5966

I stamped the elephant 2 times per color.

IMG_5967

I used an exacto knife to cut along the line for the ear, so I could make the ear more 3-d.

 

IMG_5970

As you can see, for each elephant, one got to keep the tail and heart, the other is minus the tail and heart, but has it’s ear 3-D’d. I hope that makes sense.

On the base elephant, I put some dimensional foam.

IMG_5971

The result is that you get a 3-D elephant that even stands on it’s own.

IMG_5974

Here are all the elephants ready to go.

IMG_5976

Next, to create the card base…I had the idea to make the white portion, mimic the sky by sewing random swirls on the paper.

IMG_5980

Instead of cutting all the threads, I gathered them all up and taped them on the backside of the paper.  By doing this the threads don’t loosen and become a nuisance.

IMG_5985

To space the elephants, I eyeball it, before attaching them all to the paper.

After attaching everything, I added a clear Happy Birthday Sticker, and here is the final product.

This is my last post for RubberMoon as my term is up!  I can’t believe the time has gone so fast.  I loved working with all the creative ladies on our team and will miss working with Kristen Immensly!

I hope you have enjoyed all the things I’ve shared!  Thanks for stopping by!!

FYI, GLAMPERS…you will not be disappointed!!

A Tribute to my Mom with RubberMoon Stamps

14 Apr

 

When our new RubberMoon Arts Team came together and we were choosing posting dates, I knew I HAD to have today for my blog post.

What is special about today.  It is my mom’s birthday!!

She would have been 70 today, IF she were still with us.

This picture was taken circa 1961, when she graduated from Acalanes High School in Lafayette, Ca.

My mom was a card maker EXTRAORDINAIRE!  She had one hobby and that hobby was rubber stamping.

I was her only child.  She adopted me with her 1st husband when I was just a baby.  So because I was her only child, when she passed away, I inherited, ALL of her crafting items!!

Some things I gave to friends, some I donated, others I kept, to have her with me always.

Her scissors…(see her name, in her writing?)

 

IMG_5166

Her pens….(see her initials in her writing?)

IMG_5167

…and Oh My Gosh…her STAMPS!!!  SO MANY STAMPS!!

IMG_5169

I also have  a lot of these packets that she’d have all done up with all the supplies pre-cut etc. to make a certain card. The sample was tucked neatly with all the pre-cut supplies.

Today, I am taking one of those packets and putting a RubberMoon spin on it.

IMG_5171

My goal is to stay as close as I can to her original design and color scheme, but use RubberMoon stamps.

1st step, I took the Checkerboard stamp and stamped the background.

IMG_5172

This is how it looked.  I didn’t really like it, but I knew how to fix it.

IMG_5173

Sew ribbons on it!!

IMG_5175

I added two parallel strips and sewed the edges under the card.

IMG_5177

Next, I got all the papers I needed for the paper pieced Shroom Bloom and stamped the necessary pieces.

IMG_5178

For the pieces I needed to add color to, I used Inktense pencils and a blending pen.

IMG_5179

Here are the pieces cut out and colored.

IMG_5180

Here is the little mushroom all pieced together!

IMG_5182

Now, here is a close up of my Mom’s card I was design “lifting” from.

Remember, her card was already done and does NOT HAVE RUBBERMOON stamps.

IMG_5184

Here is my RUBBERMOON “Take” on her original card!!

IMG_5186

This close up shows the little “oh la la” stamp and the tiny heart from Lindsay Ostrom’s Heart Tree.

IMG_5187

Here are a couple more pictures of the cards side by side.

Well, that about does it, for this long blog post.

 

It meant a lot, to me, to have the opportunity to do this post and use so many of her things, honor her and still use RubberMoon Stamps.

I know she would have had shelves FULL of RubberMoon stamps had she had the chance!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Remember to love those close to you….today, NOW!

 Because you know what? Tomorrow doesn’t guarantee they will still be here.

This has been me, Jeannie, with today’s RubberMoon post…and telling you all about my sweet mom!

Have a great day!

Valentines Day with Rubbermoon Stamps

10 Jan

A couple of weeks ago, at work, my delightful boss and I were perusing the new Stamps, etc available to order for Valentine’s Day.  Some companies send a display board along with the Holiday Themed stamps, to show HOW to use the stamps.  My boss, Lindsay, and I were very sad what the new stamps and display boards looked like, so what did we do?  Well she ordered what she thought would work, including some fun Rubber Moon stamps and I got to make the DISPLAY BOARD!

IMG_4839

Here are some of the products I used.  I am in LOVE with Authentique Paper’s new SMITTEN line.  I used papers from Smitten for all the cards.

IMG_4840

Here is what the board looks like.

IMG_4841

IMG_4842

Here are individual close-ups of all the cards.  They are small cards.  They measure about 3″ x 3″.

This card uses: Julie with Heart.

This card uses: Crosshatch Heart

IMG_4843a

This card also uses: Crosshatch Heart

IMG_4844

This card uses: Heart Full

IMG_4846

IMG_4847

This was so much fun to make.  All of the supplies for these can be purchased on site at Ben Franklin Crafts and Frames, Grass Valley, CA.

If you don’t live in Nevada County, you can order the stamps directly through Rubber Moon stamps.

I hope you have enjoyed this post today.  What fun things do you have planned for Valentine’s Day?
