Zoechaos Caught Being Creative with RRD!

Yes, the notorious Zoechaos has been caught redhead-handed creating beautiful art with her RRD stamps!

She has created a lovely scene with her Relish Reading stamps! Taking the outdoors indoors, she has masterfully exchanged our seated reader's tree for some elegant drapes but still given her a fabulous view outside! You can tell the young lady is transported away by her novel as we are with the card itself!

From the wonderful paper piecing and coloring down to the fabulous pullbacks for the drapes, this whole card is one gorgeous creation!

You can see more of Zoe's excellent art at This Little Place, her delightful blog!

Want to get caught too? Email us your art made with Rogue Redhead images and you'll join the rolls of our fantastic Rogues on the Run!

Beverly G: Grid Flowers

Good Tuesday Morning Everyone! Hope you're surviving the Holidays and if you exchange presents, you got everything you wished for.
I know, I know, some of you may have snow. My card for you today is built on our current challenge-Get Griddy--you still have time to enter, it doesn't close until Jan 8th.
With all our busy schedules I hope my card will inspire you to slow down and smell the flowers along the way, even if they are imaginary ones. Let your families eat some leftovers while you're in your studio creating a wonderful project.
For my card I've used the background stamp from the Beach Babes set, which is so versatile, the main image and the sentiment are from the Floriculture set. I've colored the flowers with PrismaColor pencils and blended with Sansodor Low Odor Solvent and I do love sponging around the edges for just that bit of softening and finishing  I like to get.
We look forward to seeing you all in 2012--

Happy Stamping and Happy New Year !!
Beverly G ♥

Penny Bennington: A Very Rogue Christmas

I don't know about you, but I'm still inspired by Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas and couldn't resist one more kind of Rogue-ified. I started with a wrinkle free distress background using Antique Linen, Bundled Sage and Fired Brick distress stains and then created fragment charm Christmas ornaments by first using alcohol inks (Cranberry and Bottle) and then stamped ladies from the trio of Milliner Misses using archival ink and then blotted and buffed it off creating a resist effect. I wired them to the tag using the swirl from Relish Reading as their anchor. To finish off my tag I added a sentiment from Stampers Anonymous and die cut greenery and pearls.

Here's a close-up of the fragment charms:

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

Sharon Briss: Let it Snow

I just can't put down my Beautifully Dunn stamps this holiday season. I just love their free flowing style!

This card is a very simple Clean and Simple format. I paper pieced the intertwined hearts from Snow Hugs with the two coordinating papers. The sentiment is from Candy Kisses.

Our Anniversary Sale is almost at a close! Don't miss out on our great bargains! We have a bunch of bundles including our Beautifully Dunn bundle featuring collections of our unmounted stamp plates at great prices! Hurry! The sale ends next Friday!

Want to see more great cards with these two sets? Check out the Snow Hugs and Candy Kisses sample galleries on our website!

Wishing you many merry moments this holiday season!

Sharon Briss: Quicky Bits and Pieces Holiday Card

Get behind on your cards? Here's a super easy holiday card using the Bits and Pieces plate!

I used the circle stamp from Bits and Pieces and added lines with markers and a bit of ribbon to add to the effect of holiday ornaments. Super easy and super fast!

Hope your week is merry and bright!

Stephanie Severin: Candy Kisses Grid

This month's Rebel Challenge is to Get Griddy. I loved the grid of faces on Shar's card, so I used a similar design for mine.



I stamped the sweet little couple from Candy Kisses four times with India ink, and then punched them out using a square punch (I flipped the punch over & positioned the snowflakes at the top and side on the edges to make them all close to the same).

I colored with Prismacolor pencils using colors from the Play Date Cafe. The layout is a Sweet Sunday Sketch. I finished with a sentiment Stickerz from EAD Designs.

We hope you'll Get Griddy with us this month for a chance to win some Rogue Redhead Design stamps (and who doesn't love free stamps).

Marvelous Mail

Today, I wanted to share with you some of the awesome paperart I have received in the mail in the last couple of weeks. Each one made me smile and I was awed by the amazing craftwork!

The first item I'll show you is this fabulous tag which I received from Lynn Stevens, a friend who is dear to my heart. Her amazing joie de vivre, fabulous friendship and uncompromising talent make knowing her not only an honor but a delight! Check out this tag - it is beyond gorgeous! I may be prejudiced because it features Dot from Milliner Misses! This little beauty is currently on my tree along with a sweet house ornament Lynn made me. Thanks so much, Lynn!


The next card is from a new friend, Stamping Sue. I loved that she was sweet enough to send a card with her RRD order! I love the warm feeling of this card. She cleverly created a textured background of inked swirls which echoed the steam coming off this steaming cup of tea! Her paper piecing is phenomenal and I really loved the papers she chose! Thanks tons, Sue!



I've known Vada for awhile now through Gingersnap Creations and I am always awed by her fabulous art and her wonderful designs. This delicate and stylish card came to me with her latest RRD order. So pretty! The pale peach with the delightful silver is just so classy. The center embellishment in its papercut niche brings it all together. Vada also added some fab details such as added layered white flowers and words hightlighted in coordinating peach in the background. Big thank you for this card, Vada!


The final card was a fabulous Christmas greeting that winged its way to me from Holly Brown! You may recognize this card from the most recent Technique Junkies newsletter where it appeared as a sample of the Faux Designer Brads technique. She used the toque from the Snow Hugs plate and added some fun pom pom faux designer brads. I love her colors - so fresh and fun and perfect for this cold time of year! I keep running into Holly all over the stamposphere and we have a ton of fun together. I love the way she composes her fabulous card creations - each one a total treasure. Thank you Holly for letting me not only see this card in real life, but add it to my Christmas decorations! You'll be seeing more of Holly around here soon!

Here's wishing you a week of finding amazing things in your mailbox!

Snow Love: Laura Liddell


I have made a simple card from the Snow Hugs plate. 
The words are from Snow Hugs but I have used the word individually to make up the title. 
The words are stamped onto a background that comes from the Essential Stamp plate.
Instead of snowflakes there is love falling all around. 
Nice concept, I thought. 
May your Christmas be filled with love.

Stephanie Severin ~ Monochromatic Floriculture

My card for this week's SCS Inspiration Challenge was inspired by this Flowering Tealight Holder in traditional Vietnamese blue & white from Ten Thousand Villages.
I used images from RRD's Floriculture Plate to create a similar monochromatic design.


I didn't have any matching pearls, so I dyed white pearls with the same Ranger Archival Cobalt Ink that I used to stamp my images.

Designer: Stephanie Severin

Deb Corder: Birthday Girls

My beautiful niece, Jessica, turned 24 on Sunday. This is the birthday card I sent her.

I used a 4x6 printed paper with the border and then just embellished with flowers, wood scroll piece, and a birthday wish. The Milliner Misses were water colored with my aqua pen and Distress Inks.

Beverly G: The Garden

A Great Good Tuesday Morning!
Even though we're starting winter I've got a pretty spring card for you today. To acheive this light aqua color I used Pool Party ink from Stampin Up. I took a sponge and the vanilla taffeta ribbon and pulled it across the ink pad until I liked the hue. My card base is a Kraft card blank and the polka dot paper is unknown, with Pool Party backing scallops. I've been wanting to try out these beveled windowpanes for awhile and the flowers in the Floriculture stamp set worked perfect. I stamped the flowers and then glued the windowpanes down with Glossy Accents.
Happy Creating with all the great deals Shar has going on for our 1st Anniversary.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥

Simple Set Saturday: Squaring Off

Welcome to the December edition of Simple Set Saturday! Instead of making more holiday cards, I decided to make some cards I could give away instead.

Keeping it simple and keeping in line with our current (and about to close) Rebel Challenge, I have used only one designer paper to create these simple cards.

I stamped two 1.5" squares with my image and then cut two matching squares from the same paper as the base. I did precut my grid base but I retrimmed it after placing my squares.

I finished off by stamping my sentiments onto ovals and matting them (a little offset) with slightly larger ovals.

Here's how they turned out:

Stamps: Olive from Milliner Misses and sentiment from Floriculture

Stamps: Bea from Milliner Misses and sentiment from Candy Kisses

Stamps: Dot from Milliner Misses and sentiment from Candy Kisses

Penny Bennington: Good Friends Card

Here's a card I made using my favorite text stamp from Relish Reading both as a bold element in the background and as a subtle tone-on-tone version as the background of the circles. I stamped the trio of women from Milliner Misses and punched them out with a 1 1/2" circle punch to create the circles. The card also includes a scrap of Glimmer Misted watercolor paper sprayed over a flourish screen that has been in my box of scraps for a long time because I just couldn't throw it away and it was just the pop of color I needed to finish off the card.

Stephanie Severin: Sweet on You

I am so thrilled to have Rogue Redhead Designs joining us for our final Jingle Belles prompt of 2011 ... we've been making holiday cards all year long, so we could take back December one holiday card at a time ... and we'll be back doing it again in 2012.



This week's prompt ~ Candy Kisses ~ celebrates the many foods, drinks, and candies of Christmas (dark chocolate salted caramels anyone?). For my card I went straight for the cupcakes from the Candy Kisses plate.


I stamped the swirly sweet background multiple times for my base. The cupcakes were stamped in pink and then I used a blender pen and ink to color in the cherries before adding a coat of Glossy Accents.

The sketch is last week's Sweet Sunday Sketch.

If you join the fun, make sure you link-up your card by 6pm EST on Wednesday, November 30th for a chance to win a $15.00 Voucher to the RRD Store.
