Deb Corder: Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July! This image from the RELISH READING set seemed perfectly suited to a little fireworks viewing.

To achieve the fireworks bursts, simple smack your DISTRESS STAIN bottle against the paper. I added some Stickles after the stain dried to give it that "sparkle". The girl was watercolored with my aqua pen and Distress Inks. The rest of the card was sponged.

Hope you have a SAFE and HAPPY 4th of July!

Stephanie Severin: Two Hearts That Beat As One

This card is for this week's Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge. I loved the color combination & fun whimsical feel of the photos.

I started by stamping the open polka dot background from Snow Hugs in Tomato Red ink on a piece of my Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow Lots of Dots paper. I matted it on a thin border of black cardstock before attaching it to the red card base for this week's CPS Sketch.

Next I stamped the entwined hearts & sentiment from the same set on more of the polka dot paper. I tried coloring the hearts with pencil, but didn't get the contrast I was hoping for on the designer paper, so I layered on some glossy accents, which gave a very cool effect.

Joanne Wardle: Floriculture Tag

Laura Liddell: Gift Tags

Here are some gift tags I have made with these new stamps. I love the way they lend themselves to putting onto gift tags and combining them with punches. I have also used some shaped punches to create tags with which you may not usually think of using. I think they make rather fine tags though that are a little different. Have a play and see what you can come up with.

Beverly G: Clearly Thinking

 A Great Good Tuesday Morning To All--
I have 2 photos for you today so that you could see the inside of the card.
The main base of the card is heavy weight acetate. 4" X 5 1/2".
Ever since I first saw this floral stamp acetate came to my mind. The trick with acetate cards is to mat your layers so that you can't see any adhesive, so you have to get all your layers the same size.
I stamped the floral stamp with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with copper embossing powder, then stamped the sentiment with dark brown ink. I looks really pretty on this peach paper. I stamped the flourishes on the acetate with black permanent ink then again on the back of the brown mats that go on the inside front and the outside back.

The piece of paper on the inside to write on has some butterflies which I can imagine fluttering around these flowers.
These acetate cards turn out very elegant for those special people and occasions in your life. The Bits and Pieces stamp set has lots of  words to make just about any combination of simple sentiments you need to set your cards off.

Supplies: 4" X 5 1/2" acetate card blank, Papers: Bo Bunny, Memory Keepers, SU-Chocolate Chip, Thick Window Sheet, Stamps: Floriculture, Bits and Pieces, CTMH-D1212 Playful Flourishes, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, SU-Early Expresso, VersaMark Ink, Judikins-Copper embossing powder, ribbon-Michael's, glue dots.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,

Penny Bennington: Father's Day Card

I know Father's Day was yesterday, but thought I'd share this card with you. I've always had such a hard time making masculine cards, until I found steampunk! So here's steampunk "going rogue" :-) This is my Dad's Father's Day card and it's a Z-fold design. I attached 2 square panels, 1 on the Z-fold, and the other on the back. Both panels start with a cool text background I'm finding so very useful from Relish Reading and I've been using it to create a tone on tone piece - ink the paper first with Tea Dye DI and a blending tool, then stamp the text stamp over that also using Tea Dye DI. Love the subtle text background that creates.

On the inside square panel, I used the same background technique, then added a diecut stamped with my sentiment from Bits and Pieces - such a versatile sentiment set! For the back of the card (or I suppose, the inside depending on how you look at it) I ran just that part through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder and then highlighted the raised areas with metallic rub ons.
Have a great day and I hope you have a chance to "go rogue" with your stamping!

Laura Liddell: Bluebells in May

The Forest of Dean, where I live, is famous for its swaths of bluebells in May. The forest is carpeted with them and the smell is just glorious and heady. I love the way the colour just seems to hover like a mist on the forest floor. Since a little girl they have been one of my favourite flowers so to have a stamp for them is just too good.

 Here I have played with adding small collage pieces such as fabric and ribbon threaded through holes and a torn piece of inked paper which echos the holes by adding punched ones. I have also added 3 small sparkly clear gems to again pick up the circle embellishment theme.

This set of stamps is just so easy to work with. It will always be possible to make those last minute cards for birthdays, and the like, with this set.

Beverly G: Vintage Father's Day/Snow Hugs

A Great Good Wednesday Morning To All--
Today I have a 2fer post for you. I have used some stamps from all the stamp sets available here at Rogue Redhead Designs. I love mixing stamps on my cards and these sets are so versatile the design possibilities are virtually endless.
With Father's Day this coming Sunday I have created a gate fold card using the Relish Reading set, Bits and Pieces, and the checkerboard from Floriculture. Kraft card stock, coffee ink, and navy blue you can't go wrong with a card like this for that special Father in your life.

This is the second card that came off my drawing board yesterday. I created it for my 3 favorite Christmas challenges. I used the Snow Hugs stamp set on this one. I colored it with SU markers and a blender pen. I don't think you can see in the photo, but before I attached the snowflake embellishment I spritzed the whole thing with some Vanilla Smooch spray to go along with the glittery snowflake, and the red glitter line.
It was kind of nice working on this snowy scene and thinking cool since it's been around 100 degrees here the last couple of days. Summer is truly upon us in this neck of the woods.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥

Stephanie Severin: Good Cheer

I'm thrilled to be joining the Rogue Crew. This week I made a fun holiday card using a sketch from the Jingle Belles Blog & stamps from Snow Hugs.
I stamped the image on texty paper from October Afternoon Good Cheer & added red cardstock paper piecing to the hand-muff and hats. I finished with some fuzzy pom poms on the hats and a bit of sparkle pen on the stars.

Joanne Wardle: Origami Gift Voucher

I have to admit that I give Amazon gift vouchers for every occasion, has there ever been an easier or more welcome gift? But they are a bit dull. For a while I've been making scroll boxes for them, but today I decided to try something different. It's my wedding anniversary, and I decided to buy my husband a voucher, so he can buy maps or something.

I decided to use this origami design to make an origami heart and then had some fun inking it up.

The words on the Bits and Pieces plate are perfect as you can make pretty much any sentiment you want. The rose from the Floriculture plate was the perfect complement.

Penny Bennington: Rose Collage

I've found myself making collages on 7 Gypsies bookboard covers quite a lot recently, and have combined this vintage image with a background and flourish from Relish Reading, and nestled her in a mound of rose blossoms from Floriculture. Just simple stamping and masking is all it took to create this rose bower - just imagine the beautiful scent of roses......ahhhh!

Some colored pencils and a trio of seed beads for the center complete the roses nicely.

Hope you have a great day and find some time to stop and smell the roses :-)

Ferns: Laura Liddell

Here is another play I had with these very usable and fun stamps. They are just so delightful to use. I love the shadow blocks that come with them and the simple dimension they add when used with the botanicals. Here, I have also used one of my favourite Martha Stewart punches, Hydrangea border punch and some coordinating papers, including a torn fern paper along one side. Ribbons and buttons are just extra embellishments.

I love the way these stamps allow you to create something simple, yet beautiful. My mojo has taken a back seat recently as other things are taking priority. But with these stamps I can create simple makes that do not take too long or are too demanding and still allow my to feel satisfaction and to unwind. Thank you, Shar.

Deb Corder: Bits & Pieces

HELLO! I'm so excited to join this very talented design team!

As Shar said in her introductory post yesterday - I love to get my fingers inky! And I love to use Distress Inks to make beautiful backgrounds. I know there are a few weeks yet until Father's Day but I couldn't wait to use BITS & PIECES to make a "quick & easy" card.

I started with a piece of kraft paper, clear embossed circles and squares, and then sponged Distress Ink (Broken China, Wild Honey, and Bundled Sage) over the entire card. For the speckled look, I just sprinkled some water over the card and patted dry. Finally, to give the circles and squares some definition - I used a Sharpie to "doodle" around them. Quick.! Easy! Fun!
