This isn't the best picture (click on it to see it larger) is the tag that I demoed at the Rubber Stamp Expo in St. Paul last weekend. The new pigment inks are Juniper and Purple Twilight (two of my favorites). The Snow Cap white was awesome too. It was easy to stamp detailed images without getting globs of ink on the paper.

For this tag I stamped the poem first and emobossed with clear then stamped the new flower and embossed again. Then I sponged Juniper around the edges of the tag. I also did some on white and black glossy paper but I left those samples with David from Rubbernecker Stamps.

Here are the names of the stamps (copied from Sherry's blog click here to see her wonderful samples with these stamps) Unreleased Floral Silhouette and Rubbernecker Valentine Collection How Do I Love Thee SKU:246-13 from Rubbernecker Stamp Company

Rubbernecker Stamps

These are two tags that I made with my new Rubbernecker Stamps. They both use Tim Holtz Distress inks and Crackle paint on the tag. Then they were stamped with the baby poem with Distress Ink. I stamped the little teddy bear and put distress inks on then used a Emobossing marker to add the colored Distress powder to the feet, ears and tummys. The saying on the pink one should have been moved down further but it was my first try. :)
I will be demoing some tags using Rubberneckers stamps and Tim Holtz Distress products at the Rubber Stamp Expo this weekend. Here are some details about it.

Mother's Day card

This is the card I made for my mom for Mother's Day this year. Of course it looks much better in person. The white craft ink on the borders is sort of shimmery and I have little dabs of glitter in the centers of the flowers. I didn't have a Happy Mother's Day stamp that would fit so I printed this one out on the computer using the SU font CD.

Stamps: Blossoms Abound
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Kraft, Always Artichoke,
Ink: White Craft, Not Quite Navy Craft, Always Artichoke
Accessories: SU font, Ribbon, Corner punch
